The Devil’s Chair
Cassadaga, Florida is a small town known for its spiritualism. There are a lot of fortune tellers and mystics in the town. It’s also known for the cemetery with the devil’s chair. There are stories that supposedly if you sit on the chair after midnight the devil will make himself visible to you. Legend also says if he does he will whisper unimaginable things that will end up tormenting you until the day you die.

Fake Stories Or Paranormal Hotspot?
The other story is that if you leave a full can of something like beer or soda. Supposedly in the morning the can will be empty but the can will still be closed. Apparently, the can will somehow be drained of its liquid by some dark forces. I don’t think this is true at all and probably was created as some campfire stories. However, there are those who have GONE and had some rather odd experiences. Could it have been the devil? Probably not, but could it be something else? It’s a cemetery so who knows what’s lurking in there from this and that side.
** If you DO decide to visit this place, PLEASE be respectful don’t trash it or destroy anything in the vicinity. Get permission before you go, the place is heavily patrolled!

I have been to the devils chair and live right down the road from the cemetery. Some friends and I tested the beer can theory and it does happen it will be empty the next morning
Will it be…opened? *cue dramatic music*
That's because there are way to many alcoholics in Volusia County, lol. I live in Deltona. Used to work at the hotel.
Used to go there in high school (Deltona HS) and sit in the chair after midnight (esp on Halloween) and nothing ever happened (though sometimes I look back on my life and wonder if that’s true!)…they started patrolling with police due to vandals after a while…never tested the beer can though…
While working as an editor for The DeLand West Volusia Beacon, we did a series for Halloween and sent some reporters and a bottle of beer to the Devil's Chair. Nothing happened, except we got complaints from some locals for desecrating the cometary.
A couple of years later, the local Chamber of Commerce started Halloween tours featuring With the slogan Do you dare sit in the Devil's chair?
i live close by there and have actually sat in the chair at midnight on holloween while tuanting and mocking any and all delivs witches demons and ghost to do something ..then i peed on it. Nothing ever happend..
not funny…just incredibly disrespectfull ……this is the buriel place of a once obviously loving family, and you peed on it,
My family moved here when I was 12 and we were always told growing up that if you sat in the chair you would die within three days. We did know a couple of kids who dared to sit in the chair and did pass away, which only added to the rumors.
i grew up in lake helen and casadega this link will tell you the actual story behind it: http://www.weirdus.com/states/florida/cemetery_safari/devils_chair/index.php
My husband, one of my children, and my husband's family are buried there. The cemetary is actually located in Lake Helen, Florida not Cassadaga. The story is true about the old genteman and his family. It's stories like "Devil's chair" that has made this place of rest the target of descreating this holy place of rest for our loved ones. I lived there for over 35 years and have sat in this spot many times and have never had the devil show up. These rumors was started by out of town juvinals. People need to leave this man's loved ones in peace. According to Grandma Wilkins the man passed away in the chair while visting his wife and child. How would you feel if people were to distrub your loved ones in their final resting place?
His name is George thatcher
Well I guess one thing, sure does bring a lot of people back together. However to the stories point about the chair. There are several chairs like this one. I have sat in the chair and have never seen anything considering I lived right in front of the cemtery for many years as a kid. We would play there all the time (had a nice field area that hasn't been used yet). While nothing there I did see lots of crazy stuff at my home. Things from doors opening that were locked and dogs being let off the chain at night when no one was there but me and my babysitter. Even had to call the sheriff out one night cause of the crazy stuff going on. I've also personally seen a phone ring that wasn't even plugged in to the wall not far from there. Creepy. In sure there is a scientific explanation for it all but still odd and makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
That's just Chuck Norries calling and he's the one drinking the beer
