Like many cultures around the globe, Connecticut has its own race of magical little people who live on the periphery of civilization.
East Haddam is home to an abandoned village that once was home to a thriving mill and almost became a Victorian Era tourist attraction.
One of the oldest surviving cemeteries in the U.S.—and North America—Milford Cemetery is the final resting place for an interesting group of historical figures as well as allegedly home to the mysterious ghost of a woman in white.
A river runs under it—and by "it," we mean Hartford. But for centuries, the Park River (aka Hog River), was above ground and accessible to all.
Boothe Park proves the old adage, "If you have time, money, space, some significant eccentricities and the inclination to build stuff, then you too can create a bizarre memorial to yourself that will last for generations!"
The sparsely populated Northeastern region of Connecticut has long been called the Quiet Corner. But whoever named it may not have ever been to the abandoned settlement of Bara-Hack, which may be gone, but clearly, doesn't want to be forgotten.
One of the most renowned damned places in Connecticut is the abandoned—and allegedly cursed—village of Dudleytown. Over the years, there has allegedly been everything from suicides to demonic possessions, ghostly spirits to dreadful feelings, and all the hysterical drama in between. In short, it has become the Connecticut damnation destination.
