Palmer, IL: Stone Cabin

Not tofar from Anderson Cemetery there was a stone cabin that was said to have figures that appeared in it. It was said that a man, wife and there kids lived in the cabin. One day the man killed his family then hung himself on the bridge near by. It is was also said that you would have seen a dead dog and it was sitting at the front entrance of the building but only it’s head. It was also reported that if you went into the back room of the cabin no matter how cold it is it became very warm. Warning if caught trespassing you could get arrested. The stone cabin has been torn down and has been relocated.


According to Legends and Lore of Illinois: By the Fallen- Stone Cabin is also called Rober’s Court.


According to Haunting the Prairie by Michael Kleen: It is also call Robber’s Court.  He even mentions a zombie dog guarding the place. And that it was a home of murdering thieves.

  2. I spent the majority of my youth visiting Stone Cabin and Anderson Cemetery both. I have been chased by the ghost car, seen mysterious handprints on the car window, heard and seen things that I nor any of my friends could otherwise explain, and I can tell you all for sure: Both locations are haunted. Just because YOU have seen nothing, does not necessarily mean that no one else has.

  3. i have also grew up in Palmer Illinois and both my great grandparents and both of my great uncles are buried out there, all my life visiting the cemetery and the stone cabin….before it was torn down, i have seen or heard NOTHING! I continue to not see anything going on. It is just simply an old urban legend that has been going on for many years, Hell! Even before my great grandmother was born there was never anything going on in Palmer, and she was 91 years old. Her whole life she never saw anything. The cabins gone, the bridge is torn down, and the cemetery is just a peaceful resting place for the love ones in the area. Due to all these stories, there has been vandalism to Anderson Cemetery, graves have been knocked over and some of the ancient ones in the old part of the grave yard are so damaged they are in pieces! The stories will continue, but lets have a little bit more respect.

    1. Amen brother my grandma and grandpa few uncles and aunts are buried there! Why is there so much disrespect in this world to destroy tomb stones,never have seen or heard
      anything there either! REST IN PIECE!!

      1. I was told by my father in the early 70’s when we drove by it, that the county built it. It was for the kids to have a camping shelter while fishing the nearby creek and hunting in the timber. I don’t know if it ever had glass windows but there were bars on them. They probably was on them to keep big critters out and large debris out when the bottoms flooded. It had a fire place in it and off to the side was a small closet room for storing fire wood and such. The back corner of the cabin, including the closet area was built into the hill. I don’t know if they pushed dirt onto it on purpose or if it happened naturally. Everything was stone and concrete, including the floors and flat roof. The only exception was the metal bars. I was told a county deputy bought it from the county and made it private property. Is any of this true or not?
