Caretaker of Eagle Hill Cemetery

We have 13 images of Dark Shadows Caretaker
This man worked as the caretaker of Eagle Hill Cemetery in Collinsport, Maine, not five miles away from the fabled Collinwood. An overly superstitious man, he believed that a great evil lurked about the Collins family mausoleum. The morning after Willie Loomis broke into the mausoleum (210), the caretaker noticed that the locks on the front gate had been broken. Jason McGuire encountered the caretaker that same morning, and they exchanged words concerning the vandalism. McGuire ignored the caretaker’s warnings of an evil presence and investigated the interior of the mausoleum more closely (211). Despite his eccentricities, the caretaker remained at his employ until at least the end of 1967.

Notes Edit

In the end-credits of the episodes he appeared in, he is listed simply as caretaker. He was never given a formal name.
