All Hallow’s Eve Recalls Maple Hill Legends

A Halloween thought.  Some months ago I wrote about Beltrami Park and connection with the long forgotten Maple Hill Cemetery.  Tonight might just offer a good opportunity to revisit the story, perhaps the site.  It’s a bit ghoulish, perhaps, but also a reminder of things past in time, yet near in geography to those of us who life in Northeast Minneapolis.  I had a great time learning about Beltrami, of course, and was fascinating with the stories that surround today’s Beltrami Park.  Grab some cider, another Tootsie roll and think about the stories that haunt the neighborhood, whether they be historically correct or legend is not the point of Halloween.  Here’s a gentle invitation to explore the story.  Start the quest here before the locals of history get the idea that Halloween is their night to Trick or Treat in the neighborhood this evening!
