Are there any other haunted roads in Connecticut?
If you’ve been brave enough to drive down Dracula Drive, you’re probably up for some more adventures. After all, we have several haunted roads in Virginia that are worth a visit. Take precautions when you drive along Saw Mill City Road in Shelton, a winding road that’s challenging in the best of times. When the sun goes down, however, it becomes downright frightening. Drive carefully as mischievous spirits are said to leap out of nowhere in an attempt to scare drivers. Hell Hollow Road in Voluntown naturally conjures dark images and for good reason. It’s said to be haunted by the tortured soul of Maude, who was murdered as a young girl. Whirlwind Road meanders through Wallingford, and it is home to the soul of a woman who is believed to have drowned many years ago. You may see her when you’re on the road, soaking wet and standing on the side of the road, only for her to disappear as you pass her.
What are some other haunted places in Connecticut?
You probably don’t have to travel too far, no matter where you live, to stumble upon some of the most haunted places in Connecticut. A hike through Tarrywile Park in Danbury, for example, is the perfect way to spend a few hours. One of the park’s highlights is the abandoned Hearthstone Castle. It’s said to be incredibly haunted with orbs glowing in the windows. Some have even reported shady figures darting about. Don’t be too surprised if you get hit by a stick either. The souls who remain in the castle apparently don’t like being disturbed, and as a result, lob sticks at passing hikers. If you really want to increase your chance of experiencing the paranormal, make your way to Union Cemetery, the most haunted cemetery in Connecticut. The White Lady, a woman murdered after killing her husband, roams the cemetery grounds. You might also see some of the animal spirits that wander around.
