If haunted cemeteries were haunted based on their appearance, this cemetery near Tilden, Wisconsin would be haunted. The Old Tilden Emmanuel Evangelical Church and Cemetery was founded in 1868 and was located within the farming community of Tilden. The cemetery is nestled in the woods between a farm field and creek valley. The old cemetery is badly overgrown as it sits dormant in the woods. The grave stones and monuments stand among the trees which have over taken the plots. The cemetery has been cleaned up since the last time I walked through many years ago but the forest is hard to keep pushed back. If you come to this cemetery at dusk or in the night, I wouldn’t be surprised if you feel the chill of any ghosts that may occupy this area. I wasn’t able to find much information on this cemetery and also was not able to find any of the remains of the Old Tilden Emmanuel Evangelical Church that once stood here.
