The latest edition of Connecticut Curiosities is out, and it has a very strong connection to Damned Connecticut this time around.
The long ghost-hunting history of Ed and Lorraine Warren is chronicled in their occult museum, complete with dozens of cursed objects collected from their investigations including a legendary devil doll—Annabelle.
The Damned Story: Sitting proudly along the eastbound lane of Route 66 in the area of the Hebron-Marlborough border is Eagle Rock, a painted and patriotic landmark that has been watching over cars cruising up and down the road since 1989.
When it comes to eccentric Connecticut vagabonds, none is more renowned than the curious case of the Old Leather Man. But the mystery of the dapper Darn Man of eastern Connecticut is just as compelling.
The Ballard Institute & Museum of Puppetry is a unique place, home to one of the leading puppetry schools in the world as well as dozens of antique puppets and marionettes, making it just a little bit creepy, too.
From the front, it looks like any grand home in Hartford, but from the side, well, The Austin House is not quite what it seems.
We've all seen it while driving along either Route 8 or I-84 through Waterbury: the huge crucifix high atop Pine Hill. Many already know about it, but the 50-foot high cross marks the spot that was once Holy Land USA. UPDATE: We make the pilgrimage to Holy Land and return bearing numerous photos.
