On a piece of property in the Nichols Lake area of East Milton lie some very haunted grounds. Since Michael Wright and his family moved to the property more than a decade ago, they have experienced apparitions, cold spots, and poltergeist activities. By digging through historical records and speaking with previous owners as well as other locals, Wright believes their property was once home to a graveyard for slaves called “Holley Cemetery,” from the days when a large plantation stood nearby many years ago.
The location of his property is close to where historical documents have speculated this cemetery would have been. Wright believes that one of the previous owners removed any headstones or markers that might signify that a cemetery once stood there so they could sell the land without relocating the graves. Wright has taken to snapping photographs around the property when the paranormal activity stirs up. He has hundreds of anomalous photos taken from on the property.
In the image above, he believes he has caught an apparition that seems to be hanging from the tree in his backyard. He has speculated that this could have been the victim of a lynching. Wright is open to allowing others to come on his property to investigate by appointment only.
