The origin of this haunting is rather vague, and each day Alaskan natives add to the reports helping to piece it more together. The servants found were reported to have belonged to its original owner, but little support for these claims has been found.

Mythology & Lore

Kenai Cemetery was investigated by many paranormal teams, and in 2012 they reported a women’s spirit going by the name of Marie, the ghost of Arthur Johnson, as well as several servants’ spirits on the property. They also reported EVP recordings of unknown voices whispering in the backgrounds. They heard footsteps in the snow but never capture video or photo evidence of these spirits. They did however check the plot registers to find there were a few ‘Marie’s on the list, but no Arthur Johnson. Each day people visit a blogging site Only for your State to keep adding to the sightings of these spirits and more. Giving this cemetery a ghostly history that is coming to life. Now the City of Kenai owns the cemetery and maintains its upkeep.
