Another man claimed to experience this same anomalous wind, but inside of the church rather than in the graveyard.He claimed that the sinister air current knocked him to the floor and would not allow him to move for some time.Stull Cemetery, and the abandoned church that rests next to it, is located in the tiny, nearly forgotten Kansas town of Stull.
In November 1974, an article appeared in the University of Kansas student newspaper that spoke of a number of strange occurrences in the Stull churchyard.
According to the article, Stull was haunted by legends of diabolical, supernatural happenings and the legends asserted that the cemetery was one of the two places on earth where the devil appears in person two times each year.

The legends also say that the Devil has been appearing here since the 1850s and insist that the original name of the town was Skull and that the later corruption of that into Stull was simply to cover the fact that the area was steeped in black magic.It was said that the witchcraft-practicing early settlers were so repentant about their past deeds that they changed the name of the town.One story told of two young men who were visiting Stull Cemetery one night and became frightened when a strong wind began blowing out of nowhere.They ran back to their car, only to find that the vehicle had been moved to the other side of the highway and was now facing in the opposite direction.They are places said to be so terrifying that the Devil himself holds court with his worshippers there...
