Have you ever heard the legend of the Witch's Grave at Hillside Cemetery in Skiatook, OK. before? It's one of Oklahoma's more sinister urban legends and ghost stories. This one has everything from ghosts and curses to demonic forces and witchcraft. A terrifying tale and warning to those who would disturb this grave.


Legend says that back in the late 1800s or early 1900s a woman who was known to practice the dark arts of witchcraft was widowed. Her husband died, no one knows for sure of what or how, but the woman in her grief and desperation dug him up out of the grave and attempted to use black magic to bring him back to life.

Despite her efforts, she could not bring her dead husband back to the living. The townspeople caught her and they took the man's body and returned him to the grave. The woman returned to the cemetery and dug him up again to attempt to bring him back. So once more the townspeople took his body and reburied him.


This happened again and again. Every time the townspeople would rebury her husband she would just dig him up and take his body. Eventually, to keep her from digging up his corpse they decided to pour concert over his entire coffin and gravesite so she couldn't dig him up anymore. This ended the woman's attempts.
