There's an abandoned and hidden cemetery in Oklahoma that is rumored to be haunted by the spirits of outlaws. Back in the 1800s and early 1900s, it was a popular place to dump bodies and dispose of evidence.

It was also a hideout and gathering place for fugitives and cutthroats to meet up and plan their evil deeds. This place ranks high on the fear factor scale, there are tons of legends and ghost stories being told.

So where exactly is this cemetery? You'll find it in Thackerville, Oklahoma which is located in Love County. It's about an hour and a half north of Dallas and two hours south of Oklahoma City, OK.

The now-abandoned cemetery is rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of outlaws. Allegedly there are unmarked graves everywhere and the lagoon or spring was used to dump bodies in. Some say there are more unmarked graves and mass graves at Brown Springs Cemetery than headstones and proper burial sites.

Not only bodies outlaws also supposedly buried loot and other treasure in the area and used the springs and lagoon as a hideout.

Those who have ventured into the cemetery, at least some of them, have reported seeing full body apparitions, shadow figures, and eerie light orbs and forms.
