According to Judy Antle , archivist at Missisquoi County Museum :

The Chandler Graveyard was on our "Twilight Graveyard Tour" last summer (2004 ) .  Each year we take a few of our graveyards, have guided tours, compile a booklet etc.  It was really neat at the Chandler cause it was the last one that night - as night was falling and we were all at the back of the field.  My husband came up with the idea of perhaps having a "headless horseman" ride through the field while we were all there.  Well believe it or not we convinced a friend of ours to do it and she put on a black cape - took a pumpkin with a flashlight in it and galloped by everyone!!!  What a great thing!!  Since it was dark some people could hear the horses hooves before actually seeing it.  Great ending to a great night!!
