Weird Las Vegas claims this to be the most haunted pet cemetery in America, and several websites are devoted to it, but it's exact location seems nebulous. Rumours are that the Mob also used it to bury some undesirables.
One site says it is south of the intersection of 93 and 95, while another puts it on the north side of the road halfway between Boulder City and Searchlight.
Anyone been to it?

If it's haunted at all, that would make it the most haunted in America.

If you look at Google Maps' satellite view closely enough, there appears to be what could be a pet cemetery (and it's tagged as "unofficial pet cemetery") just east of US-95, about 2 1/2 miles south of I-11. There are no signs from the highway pointing to the exit to a dirt road that appears to go by it.

It used to be full... but then they all came back.



Edit: Here's an image of the actual place:


The Boulder City dot com site has a good write up, and directions to get there from the highway: Boulder City Pet Cemetery

Note that disturbing the land there is currently prohibited as the area is protected as a designated Desert Tortise habitat.

Indeed, I see it listed when searching for "pet cemetery" near Boulder City. I'll check it out my next time out that way.

It's surprising how big it is. This image from Google Earth shows the main section:



And it's almost as large to the east.

The BoulderCitydotcom website says folks have been using the site since 1931, so basically since the dam town was founded.

Are there modern pet cemeteries in Las Vegas? If not, this could be a lucrative business opportunity. There would certainly be demand for a modestly priced, well kept place. I see so many people bringing their dogs to restaurants, stores, and basically everywhere with them under the guise of “comfort” animal.
