Itinerant Miners’ Cemetery
Early Welsh miners to the area had many superstitions, and spirits of the itinerant miners are said to still be calling for family members to identify them. On a clear night when the wind is blowing and the moon is full, listen carefully and you may hear them whispering their names.
