HAINT also did an investigation of this story. After some interviewing of people & some history look up, We discovered : 1, the girl being molested & killed by her uncle was false. The child passed away from a rare childhood disease. The Dollhouse is actually there, it was placed there by her family as it was her favorite toy. With permisson of the family, the caretakers of that cemetary placed lights in the dollhouse with a motion detector that would turn the lights on when tripped. This was done to “scare away” local teens & people that would hang out & vandalize the cemetary.

I believe the dollhouse finally had to be removed due to alot of people around the grave after hearing this story. Its true she didnt die from rape/murder. It was a disease.

That’s so sweet that someone would put her favourit toy round her grave, i damm sure that if i saw lights in it that would scare me away. How sad though that people have to spoli things. Peopole would be curous about going to see it, especially after reading this but why do they have to touch? I can see the families point of view though, they’re sad because they’ve lost their little girl, and everyone who is loking for a scare has made up stories about it. The bit about the uncle is nasty especailly as it aint true!

Nicole, sweetie, that would be nasty if it wasn’t her uncle. Really not trying to be a smart ***.

Destiny says:

June 10, 2006, 7:16 pm

Who would make up a story that horrible when it didn’treally happen? I feel sorry for theuncle,cuz people might actually believe he raped and killed her.

kat says:

June 13, 2006, 7:30 pm

So, I live in Jackson (about 15 mins from Medina) and my roommate is from there. Now, I really have no idea if this is true or not, all I know is that if you even say the word Dollhouse around Perry, he goes into spasms. I’m just saying there has to be something to this story.

Rachelle says:

July 28, 2007, 12:20 pm

Well i think its true family can be sick and demented like that.

abby says:

That is very sad.

Jen says:

November 3, 2007, 4:06 pm

I actually have a book by some people who write about all the creepy and weird things in different states around the country. It is TRUE the girl died of a disease and they had the dollhouse placed at her grave. The book’s author heard the story straight from members of the family and they also have pictures of the dollhouse in the cemetary in their book. People are so wrong to try and claim she was molested and murdered when that NEVER EVEN HAPPENED AND I HAVE IT IN WRITING FROM REPUTABLE RESEARCHERS/AUTHORS!!!!! GET A LIFE AND GET A CLUE PEOPLE!!!!

tara says:

Well, I don’t know if it’s true or not but I think just the thought of a dollhouse and a cemetery is what really scares people. And as for all the other comments….I laughed my butt off. So funny. But people seem to be more worried about the uncle then the little girl.

Blonde1 says:

Why do you think it’s fake you don’t know that.

holly says:

I grew up there! I seriously believed the story, but now I think the story is just a ploy for boys to get the girls out there to have a “make out” session. I went there one time and the boy that I was with would scare the bejeebies out of me every time I mentioned I had to go, the boy would say “oh, I think I see her,” I would say “oh where?” thank you darren, you got me over my fear of ghosts!

I’ve been to the Dollhouse before. It’s in a little cemetary right next to a house (an actual, inhabited house). I never really walked right up to it, so I never saw a tombstone; but it is a creepy area. I grew up about 20 minutes away from there, by the way. On one of the visits the dollhouse had been tipped over onto it’s side, which was a shame. Teenagers always seem to flock to the place, for some reason.

wow…….thats freaky? omg i wonder if its real? that scared the poop out of me,i almost peed myself!

the original doll house was torn down by some girl, and they built another one. the little girl did die of a childhood disease, but her family was on their way up north when she died, so they left the dollhouse there, then they continued on north. so no, the uncle didn’t do it. and the original dollhouse is not there. someone has vandalized the dollhouse that stands now. i have been there many times, and its truly sad that anyone would vandalize a cemetery. if you want to see something even sadder, go down the road a little to the next cemetery, there are alot of nice grave stones there that have been kept up, but there are alot of little stones that have only an X on them. they are the graves of slaves, and no one even bothered to put a name or a date on them. its sad to know that someone lived and died on earth, and no one cared enough to even put a name on them.

I have been to the Dollhouse grave on several occasions and I have been right up to the dollhouse. It is not a scary thing. It is not haunted and I believe the cemetary now is gated off at night so vandals cannot get in to do more harm. The only scary part about the whole deal is the graveyard is down a gravel road in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by trees.

I have been to the cemetery actually I went last Friday night. It wasn’t that scarry. I went up there with a few family members taking pictures of the headstones for our ancestery work up and everything was just calm and cool until we got to the doll house. My sister even gave her a teddy bear. When she opened the door a order came out it had a smell of musty almonds. Musty like old wood and the smell of sweet almonds. That was just weird. We was taking pictures of the headstone and my brother-in-law saw a figure in the doll house he ran us over trying to get away. That isn’t even the scary part the whole time we was there it felt like someone was watching us. Mind you it was 9 or 10PM Pitch black and freezing cold the ground had frost on it. After we started back to the car we could hear footstep behind us. We was walking shoulder to shoulder across the cemetery. After we got back to the fence we opened the gate and went out as we were looking around the cemetery there was a fog by the doll house. We took a few pictures and got warm an then I felt my hand burning I had a cut on the inside of my hand and I hadn’t touched anything in the hand that was cut I was holding my flash light the other hand I had my camara. I did swap hands all the time that we was there.

Jinx says:

I have been to the site and while I did not see a ghost of a little girl I did see orbs and felt a almost electric atmosphere. It is so sad that someone has twisted this story into her being raped. She died of a childhood sickness.

JJ says:

March 12, 2009, 8:15 pm

I think that the story has to be some what true to a point, but people have to know just how far to take that story and view all the points, if it was a disease, what did she have? did it run in her family? and if people do see her ghost in the doll house then people shouldnt try to scare others. In other words its allk disgraceful to dis a lil girls grave and her familys wishes

Richard says:

March 15, 2009, 6:55 pm

The doll house is there, not the original one. The cemetery is well maintained and patroled by the city police department after dark. If you are caught trespassing, they will arrest you. Is there a hunting there? Didn’t find one.

BIG BUF says:

March 23, 2009, 1:34 pm

my friends and i went to see the grave one night but thanks to an unknown scream about half way through the graveyard we didn’t make it.we went back a couple of nights later and looked inside but saw nothing.But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen!!!!!

marie Evans says:

May 8, 2009, 9:15 am

is it hunting just ask

Marie says:

May 8, 2009, 9:16 am

uRkeL.hAs.goNe.GAngstErRr says:

July 1, 2009, 10:58 am

ok, first of all, if she was ever-so brutally raped and beaten, why, then, would they just let her die and did they let her uncle come to the funeral? seroiusly!!!why didnt anyone watch her??

Rick says:

July 14, 2009, 10:20 pm

I grew up actually 5 miles from the actual cemetery. The dollhouse has been replaced in my lifetime 4 or 5 times.. It is quite ridiculous that ppl still vandilize the dollhouse. Yes, I have been 20 freakin times, but no damage was ever done. To be honest, I took girls out there b/c that is like the easiest way to get some..haha.


February 3, 2011, 4:55 pm

i would like to say i have been there my self with 7 other friends and we ALL heard to little girl screams!! but saw nothing and the doll house still there thanks..

kaylee says:

February 23, 2011, 10:31 pm

THAT IS REALLY DISGUSTIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Leogirl says:

June 4, 2011, 2:17 pm

This story has been debunked. The girl’s uncle did NOT rape or kill her. She died of a childhood disease, the info can be found on her death record.
This story became very popular and people began vandalizing the graveyard. The caretaker put a light and motion sensor in the doll house to keep people away from it and out of the grave yard.

The place has been inveatagted by several local groups and all have turned up the same thing.

ghost hunter says:

June 15, 2011, 6:09 pm

the uncle didn’t rape and kill her. she died of a childhood disease. William, whoever you are, you should be beaten for trying to make the lie seem real and impersonating her uncle. i’ve done extensive research on the site and history of it, and it’s been verified she died from a disease. so William, whoever you might be, if you wanna come for me, then bring it big boy. i’ve seen more things being a ghost hunter than you can imagine, so you don’t scare me in the least. ya lookin’ for a fight? then bring it on. either sack up or back up.

I am from the area. After hearing it was haunted, I went with some friends out there. I have been several times over the years. We never saw anything. The ride out there and the woods surrounding the grave yard are certainly creepy though. I could see how ones imagination could run with that.

CassWhit says:

So I know this is old but I’m looking to share what I got when I took pictures there last month. I got a pic of her. Almost clearly. I also got a dark entity too.
