This Disturbing Event In New Hampshire Is So Creepy It Has Inspired Books

There’s a lot to love about New Hampshire. But, it’s not all beautiful mountain summits and rugged trails. Every so often we tell you about some history that’s not our favorite to recall. This story, in particular, is one that’s especially hard to recall. Back in 1997, one man left a trail of terror throughout the small town of Colebrook.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Today, the events of the day have been written about in a few different books. You can find one, In the Evil Day: Violence Comes to One Small Town by Richard Adams Carey here.

Another piece of New Hampshire history that chills us is the stories coming out of this former psychiatric hospital.
