When the weather gets cool and the nights get foggy, whispers of the Grave with a Growing Chain come up.

According to local legend, one grave at Bond’s Chapel Cemetery holds an engraving of a chain…that gains a link every year. Folks of all ages flock to this site (when feeling extra brave) to get a chance at witnessing the new link appear!

The root of this legend varies in who you ask; some blame the phenomenon on the weather, while others are determined that a local murder involving a chain tainted this stone (note: the owner of the grave died of tuberculosis, has no relation to the murder).

Whatever the cause, exploring this site late at night made living in this rural area a little more thrilling.
