It is a well known fact that many people support the facts that ghosts might be real entities, few of them also support that vampires may also exist. As astonishing as it may sound, there are certain claimed places in this mysterious world that are supposedly haunted by real vampires. In this list, the place, which I highlight is the cemetery,which is believed to have blood thirsty vampires

Lafayette Municipal Cemetery Lafayette, Colorado

The cemetery is located in the Garden District,which lies between the Washington, 6th, the Prytania, and Coliseum streets, This cemetery is the number 1 municipal operated city in the New Orleans and it is considered to be the oldest one. It contains the graves of the natives as well as those of the foreigners.

The Nellie Vaughn Vampire

For some authentic reasons, most of the sites have been pointing towards the urban legends for quite a while. The site located at the Rhode Island, the gravestone belonging to Nellie Vaughn has some strange script written to it which is “I am Waiting and Watching For You,”. This gravestone gives enough attention to the adventure lovers as well as paranormal lovers that they started assuming the dead woman un-dead. While, other headstones have little importance for the paranormal lovers as well as crazy seekers.

The Vampire Legend of Mr. Glava

There is also a grave of Mr. Glava, who came to work but died due to influenza.
It is assumed that the guy has turned into a vampire. His personality was tall and thin with dark black hair and long nails. In order to prevent his vampire attacks, people have nailed a spike in his heart. There is a tree right in the middle of his grave.
