List of Cemeteries & Buriel Grounds in Alaska:

 

This list is a work in progress. It is intended to be the most complete list of Cemeteries & Buriel Grounds in the State of Alaska.

Alaska is a huge State so it has a lot of private abandoned cemeteries. This page will be updated as we are made aware of them.

Cemeteries are a great place to start ghost hunting. Not only do some of the spirits of those buried in the cemetery linger long after they have died but it’s also been shown that spirits who are not buried there also visit those cemeteries looking for lost souls
