Have there been any famous hauntings in Connecticut?  

As luck (well, maybe bad luck) would have it, yes! In fact, there was a hit movie made about one of Connecticut’s most famous hauntings called The Haunting in Connecticut. It’s based on the allegedly true nightmare story of the Snedeker family; when they moved into a new home that they later learned, to their horror, was once a funeral home, they noticed bizarre and increasingly terrifying things happening. Allegedly, the water in the faucets of the house would turn blood red and smell of decaying flesh. The Snedekers claimed they were the victims of numerous physical attacks by the “demons” they said shared their home. Eventually, famed paranormal researchers and demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren were contacted about the goings-on, and the rest, as they say, is history.  

What are some good Connecticut ghost stories? 

Connecticut is a great state for ghost hunting and is the subject of lots of interesting and eerie ghost stories. Lots of the hotels around the state claim they’ve got spirits of their own within their walls and each one of them comes with some creepy tales. For example, the Litchfield Inn, in Litchfield, is said to be haunted by the spirit of a Native American woman who likes to haunt the kitchen and dining room. There’s also the infamous Shubert Theater, in New Haven, where a ghost has been reported several times causing mischief and mayhem in the halls. In Preston, Captain Grant’s 1754 is a famously haunted place, where disembodied voices are the norm, and so are mysteriously disappearing objects.

Where are some interesting, abandoned places in Connecticut? 

Connecticut is home to plenty of interesting (and totally creepy) abandoned places. Some of the more famous ones include the old Union Pond Mill, in Manchester, which was once a busy Victorian-style mill but now stands entirely forgotten. In Newington, the Cedarcrest Hospital is a rotting testament to old-school tuberculosis wards, rotting by itself in an otherwise quaint and quiet area. In Danbury, you can find an abandoned castle (seriously!), and a decaying resort being quickly reclaimed by nature can be found in East Haddam.
