Moon Point Cemetery south of Streator is home to a “hatchet lady” who attacks anyone unfortunate enough to find themselves there after dark. It is also said that anyone who is caught in the cemetery while a train passes on the nearby railroad tracks will be trapped. Your car will not be able to start until after the train has gone.
Like many rural cemeteries, Moon Point developed some of these stories during the 1960s and ’70s when it became a haven for teens looking for places to ‘hang out.’ Things have settled down in recent years, but it is still an intricate part of the area’s folklore.
In this issue, we highlight the legends and lore of Moon Point Cemetery. Also, don’t miss our exclusive interview with Tim Sandefur of the Chicago Paranormal Research Society!
