It is inside the boundaries of Mammoth Cave Park. I can't remember the name of the road, but if you go into the park and drive around for a while, you will come upon it. I have had some very freaky experiences there.

There are several Churches in the Park. Joppa Ridge, Mammoth Cave/Flint Ridge, etc. Can you give directions?

Both Churches that I mentioned above have graveyards beside them. Joppa is on Hwy 70 and MC Church is on Flint Ridge Road going toward Northtown. Don't forget that these Churches are on Government property and protected.

Joppa isn't haunted at all. I personally don't see how a church could be haunted, but hey, makes for fun on a Friday night. But based on personal experience, the pennies NEVER move. they do if you move them, leave, come back in a few days and look b/c people go and re-arrange them all the time. haunted is the yellow house on owens street in cave city. my cousin used to live there and there was some CRAZY stuff that used to happen. the city owns the house now but good luck getting in. if u make it in, you'll get the crap scared out of u.
dont do it

Are you sure this place is a church?I used to live by a 2 story white house on Park Ridge Rd.that was supposed to be haunted.It was told that some man chopped his wifes head off, I think?I have personally never been inside this house but every time we would drive by this place it creeped me out.Other people I know claim they have been inside and thought they saw a strange light and heard chains rattle and their car started honking,the lights came on and the doors came open but this was two teenage girls out with their boyfriends and I think maybe a few pranks were being pulled.

The place I mentioned is a church and is still within the boundary of the park. If you were further out where houses are, then that isn't the park. Must be a different place.

Are you talking about the church that is on the road that is adjacent to the park?I mean you have to go to the park entrance/picnic area and the road is on the right?It has the the oldest graveyard beside of it,besides the slave graveyard of course.I think a couple of times a year the park has some kind of service or something.Anyway the house I was referring to is located on the first road you come to when you hit the park boundary,just right past the sand cave trail and the Mammoth cave sign.I would love to figure out which church you are talking about so I could check it out in the daytime.

Mammoth Cave church doesn't have any slave graves that are known. That is where Floyd Collins is buried and services are held there from time to time. It is on Flint Ridge Road. I am not aware of any churches on Park Ridge Road. Can't tell where you are talking about.

Yes it does,it is on the walking trail up next to the park picnic area.Where they have fixed a wooden walkway.It is where they used to get out the the stuff to make gun powder.Have you never seen the rock headstones?They are kind of hard to find.They were the family of the slave that drew the maps of the cave,they had been freed for working at the cave but decided to stay on.Look up the history you will find it.

IF I follow you correctly, you are talking about the old Guide Cemetery. Stephen Bishop is buried there along with some of the people that were involved in the TB experiment that Dr. Croghan started and I believe another guide or two but the Church called the Mammoth Cave (Flint Ridge) Church has no known slave graves. There are many old churches and graveyards in the Park boundary. Some are accessible and some are very hard to get to. In November, there is a group of us going out to the Davis-Slemons cemetery out the Great Onyx Road. Supposed to have the best stone fence in the park around it.
