  2. Nice little quiet spot, just watch for the transients.

  3. This is awesome. However some facts were incorrect in the original article, Montezuma Goodwin wasn’t a “white” man he was a full blooded Cherokee Indian. He was my great great grandfather. Overall very interesting 🙂

  4. I was raised only three miles from there. I went once as a teenager. It scared me to death, just by the feeling in my heart

  5. My g-grandparents are buried there because it was my g-grandmother’s family cemetery. Her name was Lela Bass Wilson. It angers me that so much disrespect has been shown to those buried there and their families by all the vandalizing that has been done there. Promoting the idea that it is haunted encourages people to go there at night when it is easier to vandalize. It’s a shame so much history has been destroyed at the cemetery.

  6. Janet, Charles, Charlie, Shawana, Steven… Reminds me of your Blakeley pics!

  7. Says name has not been resolved. Couldn’t go to site 🙁

    1. had some technical difficulties earlier should be fine now

  8. Nope. But I have been way drunk and stoned at Bass hoping to share some Colt 45, Don Bacardi, a little herb and some non-filtered Kools with Casper…I even tried bringin the good stuff, a couple Wendy’s tripple cheese and Frosty’s but still no luck for a poltergeist. FYI my Christian brethren it was in the 60’s and way early 70’s………

  9. Look at the pics on my page live with them everyday you’ll see

  10. Been there a quite a few times in my life. Just went there with my dad and nephew this night and we didnt expect anything to really happen but we all watched a very bright and vivid orb moving through the woods towards us. Then we stood there and talked about what we saw and it returned a second time but it was half as bright then vanished again. We decided it was time to go after that. Has anyone else experienced this orb thing?

  11. Mistake about Montezuma being born and married in the same year I think.

  12. A friend of mine and I went there one night to investigate and couldn’t find it…drove up and down that road several times trying to see it. Every time we got to this one stretch we kept getting bad vibes and kept feeling like someone was sitting in the back seat…drive a little further and it would stop…come back and same spot same thing…

    Finally realized the cemetery was at the end of a long dirt driveway in that spot…

  13. I’ve been a few times as a teenager. The last time I went 2 of the guys ventured out away from the car. They quickly screamed and came running back saying that they saw a shadowy/foggy movement flowing from one grave. We left in a hurry!

  14. Had one in Northport, Alabama,

  15. Bunch of odd experiences out there. I use to be a regular

  16. Just dead folks. I have several family members buried there. Also as a kid me and my daddy and paw paw and few others would sit there on decoration day and never felt anything. Daddy and some families still keep the grass cut and have never felt anything out of the ordinary.

  17. no but Sheffield on the Jackson HWY has a very crazy old grave yard! the recording studio across the street is affected by it or maybe the other way around! hahahaha

    1. Maybe it’s the Grateful Dead?

  18. […] If you’re looking to experience the paranormal, Bass Cemetery is located in Irondale off of a dirt road in the middle of the woods. While many argue that the cemetery is more than 200 years old, the oldest marked grave is dated from 1860. Bass Cemetery is the final resting place of Civil War soldiers, slaves from the area, as well as Revolutionary War soldiers. Many brave visitors have reported ghost sounds, and sightings of apparitions. Some believe that the graveyard is haunted by Revolutionary War soldier, Burwell Bass, after whom the cemetery is said to be named. Learn more. […]

  19. […] Have you ever had a ghost experience at Bass Cemetery Irondale, Alabama? […]

  20. Just came from there. I am very saddened at the level of vandalism there – very disrespectful. It is my intention to include Bass in my book about cemeteries. To date, I plan on including Bass, Oak Hill, New Mission Hill next to Elmwood, Elmwood, Charleston area cemeteries, and Savannah, GA area cemeteries.

    1. You might want to check out Beaver Creek Cemetery also… in Shelby County, AL

  21. They are probably spinning in there graves seeing what the people are doing that they died for Caint blame them

  22. Bass Cemetery is definitely a creepy, uneasy place.

  23. True.. the famed psychic/ sleeping prophet Edgar Cayce insisted that central Alabama was one of the most active area in the world for unexplained phenomena..If you were to browse through the LOC slave narratives of the 1930s,you can find many.. I would guess that about 1 in 5 account a multitude of ghost stories, lore, and folk tales about ghosts…

    1. Myrick Chapel LOC slave narratives., where would I find that?

  24. Bass is definitely haunted. I’ve been there several times and received a fright with some friends one night that I can still see plain as day.

  26. I had an experience at Bass several years ago

  27. I’ve been there twice, both times at night, but the eery woman humming on the road leading to the cemetery always deterred me from going any further. So I’ve been there twice and have yet made it to the cemetery.

  28. Burrell Bass is my gggggrandfather.

  29. I saw one of these at Sturvant Hall in Selma

  30. Yep. Bass Cemetery. Definitely haunted.
