Haunted Explorations of Haunted Places

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I created this blog post to document all of the allegedly haunted places that I have explored. I will update this post over time.




I've been to this place a few times. It is true about it being very silent. In the middle of the summer, when all of the bugs were buzzing loudly on the outskirts of the woods, none were heard further inside, in the middle of the woods. Any bird calls I heard were in the distance, and none were overhead.

I personally have never experienced anything out of the ordinary while I was here, but that could be because I am a non-believer. I did have one inexplicable photograph but I still don't know what caused it.

Haunted information. More haunted information.

If anyone knows how to contact the Dark Entry Forest Association to get a permit for entry onto their property, please leave a comment. Thanks.

Interesting, but fake, links that I found on the Internet for Dudleytown:


Notes:

1) The original video said it was "captured on Chase Avenue" when there is no such street near Dudleytown in Cornwall, CT. A recent comment on the clearer video said "the video is filmed from a house on forest road on the priory estate." I'm not sure if the location they mean is actually Dark (Forest) Entry Road.

2) The effect in the Dudleytown video of someone "walking along the edge of the road" is very similar to the fake effect in this "ghost" video posted by the same person. At the end of that video, you can see the ghost's head strike the overhead light cord/string that is hanging down from the ceiling. Obviously the same "special effects" method was used to create the Dudleytown video.



This is often rated as the most haunted location in Connecticut, and is allegedly haunted by the "White Lady". I've gone here several times, during daytime and nighttime, but I never saw anything supernatural.



I didn't see anything supernatural here. Haunted information.



I'm not sure if the actual grave is haunted, or if the myth here is more about her allegedly being a witch. I didn't see anything supernatural here.



I didn't see anything supernatural here. Haunted information.



I went here during the day. The main buildings are fenced off to prevent entry. (I-95 North exit 75.) Haunted information.


Places I haven't been to yet:


Allegedly Captain Kidd's pirate treasure is buried here and the island is haunted/cursed. The island is accessible from shore via a sandbar (tombolo) at low tide, so I need to time my visit accordingly.



Back in 2011, the "Ghost Hunters" program filmed an episode here.

I haven't been inside this place, and I am unsure of how to arrange a visit here. If anyone knows who I should contact, please leave a comment. Thanks.


Boothe Memorial Park, Stratford, CT
Witnesses allege "eerie feelings, unexplained knocking and voices" and "shadowy forms" in the cemetery. Haunted information.

This site is listed as one of the 20 Most Haunted Places in Connecticut.

I went there at night, but I didn't capture anything supernatural on my photographs. The green orbs in the photo are most likely due to backscatter reflection.

I love how these Fall leaves reflected in the water look like Impressionist Paintings. I also thought the first one looked similar to the marble swirl patterns that were on the inside covers of books.

This is a photograph that I took recently at Silver Sands State Park in Milford, CT.

I had my back to this group of seagulls when this one started squawking at another one that was in the water.

These are some photographs that I took recently at Saugatuck Falls Natural Area in Redding, CT.

I love the golden hues the Fall foliage cast in the water. If you look closely at the second photograph, you'll see a single leaf that was floating on the water. Everything else is a reflection.

Fall is already past peak here.

The first photograph is my entry for:

These are some photographs that I took recently at Gregory Four Corners Burial Ground on Spring Hill Road in Trumbull, CT.

This site is listed as one of the 20 Most Haunted Places in Connecticut because of Hannah Cranna, who is known as the “Wicked Witch of Monroe.”

I went there at night, but I didn't capture anything supernatural on my photographs. The lights in the background of the first photograph are from a house in the distance. The orbs in the second and third photographs are due to backscatter reflection.

This is also my 1700th blog post.

I liked the worn, weathered look of this barn. I had actually stopped here because there is an old cemetery across the street from it.
