Seattle City Fathers Use Cemetery Land to Feed the City's 1907 Expansion Needs, Unsettling The Dead
Local author discovers her Seattle Greenwood neighborhood, which includes a number of houses considered haunted, was platted on an abandoned cemetery in 1907. Her two 'Ghost Stories' books, on Kindle and Nook, reveal incidents of ghost sightings.
“I was astonished to discover that the land my home was built on had once been a cemetery,” exclaimed Seattle author, Emily Hill. “There were many ‘beyond the grave’ occurrences in my 1907 Greenwood home, but I never imagined that Seattle city fathers would build a housing development right where a cemetery had been.”
But that’s exactly what did happen in 1907 when (unincorporated)
The author explains, “for fifteen years I lived at 708 No. 82nd Street. The address 712 No. 82nd Street was next door, and 725 No. 82nd Street was to the east, across the street. The residents of all three houses experienced hauntings, paranormal activity, and the presence of ghosts.
I’ve included my own experience in ‘Ghost Stories and The Unexplained’
“Doorknobs would creak and turn in the middle of the night as I sat across the room watching, being the sole resident of the house,” the author revealed.
Emily Hill believes that the hauntings that took place in her Greenwood neighborhood are the result of restless spirits whose ‘final resting place’ was disturbed in 1907 for the benefit of…the living.
