it will be freakin great , at least you can play all your cd's on full volume , it will inspire you to do things , like Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails
i used to live in uk , near london , and they have those creepy forests with ghosts , old , old cemeteries and chapels , it was bloody fantastic , no wonder why all supreme bands are from uk

I mean, if ghosts and other spirits were going to get you they could find you no matter where you live so maybe you could live next door and make nice with them.........sorry

Well I appreciate the input from all you guys. We'll just have to see what happens I guess. Personally, I'm fascinated in the paranormal & do believe in ghosts-so living near a graveyard would be fine with me.
Of course the first time I ran into an univited guest in my house-I might feel different !

My first reaction was no way, graveyards give me the creeps- even the ones my kinfold are buried in. I'm terrified of ghosts and I do believe in them!

Then I got to thinking, as much as I hate most of my neighbors, I'd rather live next to dead people. They won't be calling the cops on my stereo, bitching about my animals, hurting my animals, cutting branches off my trees, or backing into my car. I live near people who are so nosey I am afraid to go outside. I can't even go watch my kids play on their own swingset because we can't set foot outside without being shamelessly stared at. I love old Victorians too. If I had a chance for that place instead of the crap place I live with the assholes I live near, I'd grab it. The thing that would bug me is that if it's still an active graveyard, people will constantly be coming in and out bringing flowers and stuff, and I hope they wouldn't be nosey. Even if there are ghosts, they don't hurt you as much as real asshole live humans do!

I used to live across the street from a cemetery. I lived there for about 12 years. It wasn't horrible ... I was never really bothered by it.

Oddly enough, it was kind of pretty ... lovely flowers and greenery in the spring and summer; and in the winter it was always very peaceful looking when it snowed.

I like cemetaries. I like strolling through them and sending out good vibes to any lost souls roaming around ("go to the light!"). I often stop if I see a cemetery and take a few minutes to visit. I was recently in West Texas and there were some really cool cemetaries in deserted towns (often called "ghost towns" in travel books) with mementos dating back to the 1800s. Very cool.

I was thinking of the Halloween parties too.

Just be careful if you ever decide to put in a pool

Yes, I would say go for it, If u-2 were in agreement. it would not bother me either-I love Victorian anyways. True, as some said, would be peaceful, noone over there bothering anyone! And some of them are really nice, pleasant gardens, etc. but those funeral processions can wrong a bit long! lol

I'd go for it, but I'd put Ghostbusters on speed-dial.

I suppose I can speak from your husband's point of view. I don't know if you can ever overcome that sense of being off balance around something that makes you uneasy. So, if it's possible maybe don't rush the decision, another home with another less disturbing reason to be affordable may come along.
To me, it sounds delightful you are moving to your home town.Use all the old contacts you can to find out what may be coming up for sale.
Speaking of cemeteries and real estate. There is a funeral in my hometown today. My beloved old Sunday School/ Scripture teacher died on Friday. What an incredible woman she was. I can't go today although my o my , I feel like jumping in the car right now and zooming up there.) There is much speculation, which I find very distasteful, about what will become of her house and land. Real estate prices went crazy in the town that I grew up in, absolute and utter madness it seems to me. I will never be able to afford to live there againSo I understand why you are considering this place.
But I think even though you may feel at ease, ultimately your husband has to be able to feel at ease too.
I have friends who live, as it turns out, in a cemetery and they are happy and at ease there.
Good luck.

It'd creep the hell out of me, too. Cemetaries at night are one of three things that would freak me out...like stated, having a horror movie marathon for the first time and getting paranoid...I personally would feel uneasy living near a cemetary.

Although U2Kitten did make a good argument for it.... Certainly makes sense.

I don't think it'd worry me. The house sounds gorgeous anyway. Are there any other house nearby?

You have to consider the resale value of course, if you decide to leave because of ghosts or any reason. Things like that are usually a hard sell.

Speaking of which, on this subject, what would bother you more, living near a cemetary or living in a house you know someone was murdered in? Or even died in? My aunt was going to buy this gorgeous horse farm until she heard that an old man died in the basement. He wasn't murdered, but he was put down there by his family and suffered to death of sickness with no arms and legs to get away. My aunt said the thoughts of that torso man dying down there would always bug her.
