There are plenty of urban legends out there such as Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, UFOs, and more that have gotten a lot of mainstream attention. However, there are even more urban legends on a local level that haven't gotten near as much fame in the world of pop culture. That's the case with Indiana's scariest urban legend.

Creepiest Urban Legend in Indiana

When it comes to Indiana's creepiest urban legend, it is one about a cemetery in the town of Brazil. The cemetery has been dubbed the "100 Steps Cemetary". Multiple sources say that this place is the scariest place to visit in the state. Websites such as Insider, Travel Channel, and Reader's Digest all claim that 100 Steps Cemetary is beyond worthy of being named "The Creepiest Urban Legend in Indiana."

There are a lot of paranormal investigators who have gone out to the cemetery to see if they can capture any of the reported claims. Here are a few of those:

So, the big question here is are you brave enough to go there and count the steps at midnight? I don't know for sure if I'd be comfortable doing least not by myself.
