I lived in a small house on Santa Cruz right behind Madison. The day we moved in we were trying to put our sofa in. The house had a bit of a struggle because the screen kept closing. Then out of nowhere this lady walked up and offered to hold the door for us. We thanked her. We wanted to thank her a gain, but she was gone. I looked to see if I could see her walking, but she was gone. Then about 2 weeks later my ex was cleaning the back yard, and he found a photo of a lady and her 2 kids. It was the lady that held the door open for us. I was told she drowned her kids in the bathroom and hung herself on the tree in the back yard.

The New Hope Cemetery out on Avenue 12 1/2 and Road 21 1/2 in Madera CA is very haunted. There used to be a church, (New Hope Church) and it had a basement. When the church became abandoned in the late 1980s people started doing satanic rituals and witchcraft in the basement. They were sacrificing animals too.
The church was bulldozed down around 1989 leaving the basement exposed, and you could see writing and satanic symbols on the walls in what looked like blood. Soon after they leveled the church they filled in the basement. There are graves in its cemetery from the 1800s. Itís creepy. I went out there with some friends in 1990, and we laid on the older graves out of a dare. When I got up as I was almost at a standing position something pulled the back of my hair so hard that I fell back down on my back. I heard a guttural scream and realized Iíd made the sound out of sheer terror. I darted to my friends truck with the rest of the group, and we were all so freaked out. We jumped in the back and sped off back into town.
When we got back to Madera we stopped behind Town & Country Park to talk about what happened and 3 out of the 7 of us got our hair pulled: me, another girl, and a guy. The guy left his hat because of it. It was crazy. No lie. I felt it. It was real. I donít even believe in ghosts, and it was real. I wish it hadnít happened. The memory scares me to this day. .
