Some time in the 1800's a cruel farmer owned the land that is now the Alma Cemetery. As Alma expanded and land was needed the officials went to the farmer with a generous offer to buy the land. The farmer refused to sell.

One night the farmer was pushed into the well by an unknown assailant. Days later when the officials came back with another offer they smelled something foul from the well. The sheriff called off any investigation into the odor and ordered the well be boarded up and left alone.

Many years later, the cemetery was built on the farmer's land and the well has become to be known as 'The Devil's Chair'. Legend has it that anyone that sits on The Devil's Chair will be dragged into the well by the farmer looking for revenge on the townfolk.

Other activity has been witnessed in the cemetery including orbs and strange mists.
