This week we visit a unique Utah location with an unsettling name: Suicide Park

Along a dirt road on a remote northern slope of the Uinta Mountains is a most peculiar point of interest: Suicide Park.

The main attraction is a small cemetery with only three graves. All belonged to men who died between 1928 and 1930. Each had worked in the area, cutting timber to be used for railroad ties.

Researcher Jennifer Jones, whose blog delves into the history of spooky spots in Utah and beyond, helps explain how Suicide Park came to be.
