The abandoned graveyard behind the Crow Hollow Orphanage doesn’t have a name. It has earned the nickname “Witch Cemetery” by the stories the nuns told the orphans to keep them from running away.

Legend tells the witches would exhume the bodies and burn the hearts and livers of the dead. They believed that by inhaling the fumes it would offer protection from disease and eternal life.

Ghosts of the deceased haunt the old cemetery and protect the tomb of the Headless Horseman. Each fall the witches hold a ritual called “Black Horse” that raises the Headless Horseman from his tomb to terrorize the countryside.
