  3. Angelbilt Hotel – Once an old hotel, the now modern offices tout their own spooky happenings.
  4. Orange Hill Cemetery – A vacant field now but 1907 to 1961, was used as a potter’s field – a pauper’s cemetery – for about 500 families who could not afford burial for their relatives. Of those 500 graves, only five plots had markers; those have been dated to the early 1940s.
