This church dates back to the 1930s and stories say it was taken over by devil worshippers, and that practitioners would sacrifice young girls here. The church suddenly burned down, but there are ghost stories surrounding the area to this day. Some have reported having car trouble here for no reason, and one story says a boy went to get help after his car broke down, and came back to find his girlfriend hanging from the oak tree. Some claim they've spotted her apparition, as well as a phantom hearse.

    Came down here one night with friends, drinking a little bit and exploring.. the three of us walked into the cemetery and were just talking looking at the graves and through the treeline it was like cops had spotlighted us to get out of there.. shining a huge bluish white light.. My two friends ducked down thinking it was the police and I was just dumbfounded standing there.. I guess just waiting on them to tell us to come out lol.. but no one was there except this lightt... We walked out of the graveyard and the light was gone and no one was there... Definitely felt like we were being watched.. I haven't been backk

  • Old Miller's Church in Hagerstown

    We used to smoke pot there in the parking lot in the late 1960's (I think the Church was operational then, one night we saw a guy in a suit leaving and locking up) and in the early 1970's, like around 1973? The story about the girl hanging from a tree is an urban legend - never happened. Especially back then - that would have been breaking news - there were no murders in those days - a woman named Betty Jane Kennedy who was murdered in April of 1946 in Waynesboro and then there was another man found murdered on Paradise Church Road in like 1962 - he was from Waynesboro - and both of those stories were HUGE deals. Betty Jane Kennedy's murder is still unsolved. In the 1960's the art teacher at North High - Mr. Kingsley - used to take his art classes there to the graveyard on field trips to do paper etchings of the grave stones. There was a weird story about one of the grave stones having a freaky message. The overall feeling when we were partying was very freaky...I remember being there and being scared a few times.

  • Chills….

    my friend and i drove past the church last night, as well as the tree where a girl was supposedly hung. there is a light shining on the tree, which was creepy enough already but then we both got MAJOR cold chills as we went by it. didn’t stay for long at all, didn’t even bother to get out of the car. mind you, i had the top down on my jeep and it was a mild temperature, but this chill was FREEZING.

  • Nothing to crazy

    Went with a friend recently and didn't expect much, we got there and I was interested in roaming the graveyard. I didn't see any apparitions but as I got deeper into the graveyard it became harder to breathe. My friend didn't go nearly as far as I did but she also said the longer we stayed the harder it was for her to breathe as well. Interesting but not as spooky as I expected

  • Went here with a couple friends a year or two ago--weird occurance.

    So a couple of friends and I used to visit this road every few nights when hanging out a couple years back, towards the end of high school. We would occasionally get out of our cars and roam around the church itself, even the cemetery, but saw nothing out of the ordinary. I will however say that upon driving back one night, we stopped at the Liberty gas station off of Little Antietam road, as my friend was kinda spooked in the back seat. Upon stopping the car and getting out to show us what he was freaking out about, there was a single handprint on my rear window. We tried wiping it, to no avail, and so we tried wiping it from the inside as well. Nothing. This handprint was actually IN BETWEEN the panes of glass in my car, making it unable to be wiped off until it faded a couple days later. I'm not one for ghosts and all that, not a huge believer. But this experience I personally had combined with all the others I've heard friends of mine have had at this location tells me there's definitely something going down here. Might revisit with some friends sometime after COVID blows over, as college and work has kept us separated for longer than we'd like.

  • scariest shit ive ever seen

    Ok so me and my friends (sometimes just myself) always go down this road just for fun to get a little spooked but nothing has ever happened so we never believed the stories. But just tonight a little after 12 midnight we went down and started saying hello and talking from my car. about 2 minutes past and we saw the brightest light ever. was the color of a cellphone flash but had no direction or anything so it was more of a glow that covered the entire right side of the car and you couldnt see anything out of the window for a split second, I made sure everyone saw what i saw and i zoomed off because they did, no one was around and nobody had their phones out. we went back after calming down and asked questions again and i took a photo and right by the tree line there is a black figure that was so perfectly shaped like a human in a black klan style robe. never will i go here alone again

    I have heard all the hype about this place and being a paranormal fanatic,I couldn't wait to see this place. There is NO woman,There is NO Herse,NOTHING! I've been going for 4 nights and seen nor experienced anything. I've gone all different times of night. 10pm,1am,3am. Especially 3AM. 3am is the witching hour so if anything was to happen,this would be the hour. FAKE PLACE!

    Went there on smoke rides at night with friends in highschool . One of our friends was a piece of shit and took an old toy off a headstone of a child. Didnt mention it to us till we were down the road and everyone had a sick feeling and told him to toss it from the car or get out. He tossed it out of the window at an old vehicle on side of road. I went back with one of the guys and my ex during the day and that toy was on the headstone and the car wasnt there along the road when we left.

  • Fun

    Friends and I drove out here on a whim in high school, maybe early college (somewhere between 2005 and 2007 probably. We did in face fine the "cemetery" but hearse or spirits of anything while we were there. When we left, though, we were stopped by two giant glowing yellow eyes in the middle of the road. Being "invincible" teens, we jumped out of the car with a flashlight and went toward the eyes. What we found was a large owl chowing down on a opossum. It flew off and we went home a little shaken but laughing.

  • Jacobs Lutheran Cemetery AKA Millers Church

    I have been visiting this place since I was a teenager. Back then I knew it as Piece Chapel. WE used to go back there and drink and party. I had seen the old cemetery and was interested in the old site. As time went on I had forgotten all about it. Recently my interests in the paranormal has grown and turned into a hobby. My son and I grabbed some cameras and digital recorders and went out. I didn't get the usual creepy feelings while there just a feeling of being watched. The cameras could have had something to do with it. WE did capture an EVP. There was only one but it was very interesting. I added it to my webpage. You can hear the EVP and read about the whole experience there at https://ghost-hunters.org/. By the way, this is a beautiful area and one of our treasures.

  • Miller's Church Rd

    Me and my friends heard all the stories and had to find out for ourselves. So we went to the graveyard and took pictures and in the background you could see what looked like orbs. We went to the church and stood under the tree and it felt like we were sinking into the ground. We were freaked and went to leave and our car wouldn't start. When we finally got the car to start we were being followed by a black hearse but we couldn't see a driver.

  • Millers Church Rd

    Yes this place is absolutely haunted. I would say it was 2008-2009 winter it was freezing me and my friend used to just ride around and explore different areas in town, we heard all the hype of this road and I diddnt believe it until this very night we went. Got to the end of millers church road and made a U turn came right back got across the small bridge and as we were passing something in a opening in the woods caught my eye a woman dressed in older clothing all white glowing with dark where her eyes should have been I’ve never been so scared I slid down my seat through my seatbelt to the flooor board.... THIS IS REAL AND IT IS HAUNTED
