Visit a cemetery that is said to be legitimately haunted.

Greenwood Cemetery resulted from an increase of workers coming to Spokane, due to jobs in the mining and railroading industries. Because so many people came for work, more people were dying in this small town. This resulted in a purchase of land in 1888 that was established as the Greenwood Cemetery. Workers and families would be buried together in the plots, and in some cases, would be dug back up for other projects. But when the booming town died down, the cemetery remained unsullied, for the most part.

Enough bodies were being buried that it was necessary to build terraces. The first floor was mainly filled with the workers and their families, but the second terrace was where many higher-ranking townsmen were buried. In 1961, a third terrace was constructed and is the highest of the terraces.

This cemetery with so much depth and death is said to be haunted. Although it is out of the way and located on private property, the infamous One Thousand Steps leading up to it may also be haunted. It earns this name since it is rare for any individual to reach the top. As one climbs the staircase, they'll be haunted by faces of men, women, and children, all of whom are presumably buried in the cemetery. However, if you can brave it to the top of the stairs, the fun doesn't end there. Upon reaching the top, you'll hear blood-curdling screams and screeches. It's also been reported that once the screaming starts, you'll feel drops of rain. This place is not for the faint of heart, but if you want to venture to a haunted cemetery in Washington, look no further.
