Graveyard Shift

A Genuine Portal To Hell Might Be In This Rural Kansas Church

There's not a whole lot happening in rural Kansas, unless of course you're the Devil. According to some local lore, Hell's gate is in Kansas. The quiet, 19th century resting ground known as Stull Cemetery might just be one of the world's portals to Hell.

It's unclear why Satan would claim a small, sleepy rural town about 15 miles from Lawrence as his homebase. He seems like a true city-slicker. Maybe he was just looking to retire or wanted to be left alone (it must certainly be disheartening seeing your name attached to every bad thing that happens, ever). Either way, the town of Stull is said to be home to one of the few churches that sit on Hell's mouth. That's right, Satan's zip code is truly 666(06).

Places where people have reportedly found real portals to Hell are rare, but Stull Cemetery and the old stone church on its property is one of the most renowned. You don't get the title of most evil graveyard in America for nothing - you need sizable reports of ghosts, demons, and inexplicable supernatural occurrences. This property has had rumors swirling since the '70s, much to the dismay of the local police force. You'd think that few people are begging to knock on Satan's door, but when a Kansas church hides a portal to Hell, all hell truly does break loose.

This is the story of Stull Cemetery – a quiet, rural cemetery so frightening it had Ariana Grande, one of the most well-traveled pop stars in the world, turn right around. It is a cemetery so mysterious that it was featured on Supernatural. The devil is truly in the details.
