Real Haunted House

Satanic Cemetery

Stull, Kansas

In this old cemetery lies an old, burnt church that was the site of Satanic rituals many years ago. Many have seen ghosts walking around the site which is thought to be on of the seven gateways to hell. Today, the area has been fenced off due to the large number of visitors.

What, one person telling you it was torn down wasn’t enough? The church is GONE. And if you’ve been to Stull, it’s not like it was at all hard to find anyway — the city basically constitutes of the cemetary and about six buildings. There are probably ten times more dead people there than living.

But yeah, I went there once before it was torn down, got a good ten minutes before the folks across the street noticed us, and I can tell you, nothing really happened. We tried the bottle throwing (it’s supposed to not break against the wall, but they all did), we tried one of those crappy Ouija boards, and we even brought along some crazy pagan weirdo to see if she could do anything awesome. It wasn’t even worth the gas it took to get out there from Lawrence.

There have been, and always will be, SO many more worthwhile haunted places in the state to see.

I’ve heard that anyone caught around there now days will be taken to jail for the night, for trespassing…but there are several stories, claiming all kind of evil things that have gone on at that cemetary.

I’ve been to Stull a couple times…both after the place had been torn down. You will get caught for trespassing if you try to climb over or slide under the chain link fencing.

Trust me (and several others who already commented), there is nothing to see. There is a pile of huge rock rubble and an orange construction fence that is falling down. Behind the church is an open field with an abandoned wooden wagon…coyotes howl time to time, but that’s about the only noise you hear other than your own breathing or speaking.

I think someone has a really wonderful imagination and liked to add the legend over time. Now, a frickin’ movie is being made based off the Stull Church and cemetary….this link is brand new…the movie has not been released just yet…but here goes…

The actual story of this haunted church isn’t the church that you see from the highway driving through Stull. The actual church that no longer stands fully is in the field BEHIND the cemetary. It was said that the pastor who first initiated the church was no pastor at all but a cultist. He was said to be demented and was often seemingly “possesed” by demons. He planted a tree inside the church that was to grow and become the gateway to hell. He was brutal to his followers and was said to have sacrificed young children there in order to open the gate of hell that was in the tree that grew through the church and was fed the blood of sacrfices. The throwing of the glass at the walls of the church and not breaking is due to the “tales” that you can see the church in it’s full building on certain nights that sacrifices were held and hear and see the occurances… throwing glass at the church will not break – because it doesn’t exsist anymore.
Just a little history on your history and the real story behind Stull church.

Halloween is said to be the most “active” night for the spirits of the sacrifices and cult members(thats no surprise of course). My babies dad went there last halloween and was the only one brave enough to even step foot on the steps. I don’t know much else besides you get an eiry feeling just driving past and looking at the place, I sure aint bout to step foot on the property.

It’s really not worth visiting. I went about 5 years ago and had the privilege of being chased into the woods by cops. Ended up walking 30 minutes through the woods in the rain and another 30 minutes to my car. If you get caught you’re looking at a huge fine. Good story behind the church but not so great to visit.

I ‘ve heard that the church there before it was torn down peoplewould throw stuff in the and not here it drop. I know this is true because my dad did that before and he looked inside and there was walls and a floor.

A friend of mine is from Lawrence and he and his buddies from High School used to go there before it was torn down. He said one of them saw some strange things in the building. There were names all over the inside and the only one with moonlight shining on it was the name of the guy who peaked inside. I know its a big country and all, but when the Pope is in the United States, his jet will not fly over Stull. From what I hear now, its not much to see and as has been posted, the most likely thing to happen if you go out there is a visit from the police, not spirits.

With all the police and no treaspassing postings… sounds like there are trying to cover-up something, with all the stuff you could make money for nowadays, seems like they could make it an attraction.. I mean come on, what else is there in Stull..? 1 cop, 2 roads, 1 handful of old buildings, and one of the most haunted places in america… If you ask me, seeing this place would be enough, especially outrunning some fat cop just to see this place with my own eyes.. I’m gonna go in the future, and when i do, maybe i’ll have a cool story to post when i get back… if i come back… dun dun duuuuuunnnnnnn!!! :)

It’s been years since I’ve even thought of Stull, Ks. I just kind of stumbled onto this website and low and behold I have a story. Although, probably not what you’re looking for. I went to Stull, about 15 years ago, with 3 other friends, the church was still standing then. We went inside hoping to find something that would scare the **** out of us. It was just an old burned down abandoned building, marked with graffiti and lit by moonlight. I think we were more scared of being caught by the police than being confronted with Satan or some evil demon spirit. Though I had no experience HERE, I DO NOT disount other stories as I do have other stories of some really scary encounters.

I grew up in Lawrence all of my life and I heard a lot of rumors about Stull cemetary. One friend even had a map of a satanic star drawn on it pinpointing the seven gateways to hell and Stull was one of them. However something always threw us off because the original Stull cemetary is about five miles to the south of where the church is, down the road that takes you around Clinton lake (take a left just past the church towards the lake) and before you get to the turn off for woodridge on your right is a dirt road, Just as you turn onto the dirt road is the entrance for the cemetary. It is on top of a little hill with two big pine type trees on top of it. The whole area around is field and very flat. And there is a witch burried under one of the trees, supposedly. I was there for halloween on midnight and nothing happened their either. It is a wonderful spot for the sunset though, and there is deffinitly someone burried under one of those trees. This is also a no hassle area, I never encountered anyone or police there.

I love all this talk of Stull. All the letters here and such. All research shows nothing was know of this legend before 1970 when a prof. from Larwence wrote an article about it. Why you say. Well I must tell the truth of the Story of Stull. Myself and a few friends started the legend of Stull in High School in 1965. This is the truth. It is all a phoney. Sorry about all the trouble it has caused the town but it is just a big fake. We made it up. Not bad how it has spread world wide…..

I personally went to Stull about ten years ago with some friends. It was a pretty eerie place, but I think most of our nerves came from the alcohol and ghost stories we had been consuming all evening.

At that time, the four walls of the church were still standing, but the roof had long ago collapsed. The new church was across the street. There was also a very large tree in down the hill from the church.

I’ve read the comments on here, and I wanted to correct a couple of things. There were no stairs that I ever saw at Stull. We walked the entire perimeter of the building and also climbed in one of the windows.

Since that time, the church and the tree out front have been torn/cut down. Looking at pictures on the Internet, it seems that there is just a pile of stones atop the hill above the cemetery.

There wasn’t much to see ten years ago, and there’s nothing at all to see now. I would suggest if you really need to see the place to do a quick drive-by to avoid a night in jail.
