Abandoned Places

Does Rhode Island have a lot of abandoned places?

For a state as small as Rhode Island, our state is teeming with abandoned and often terrifying places. Though with Rhode Island’s long history, it’s no wonder why the state has so many haunted locales. From the house that inspired the movie “The Conjuring” to haunted hotels, mansions, a carousel, mills, churches, and restaurants, there are plenty of abandoned places here that can send shivers down your spine. In addition to the abandoned places listed above, one of the creepiest places to visit in Rhode Island is Chestnut Hill Baptist Cemetery in Exeter. In fact, if you’re actually wanting to see a ghost in Rhode Island, this cemetery is your best bet! At this unnerving locale, the ghost of a young girl (reportedly laid to rest in 1892) is said to wander among the headstones. Folks began spotting the ghostly apparition after her body was exhumed, which occurred after the townspeople decided that she was a vampire. What followed next was truly horrifying. We won’t spoil the surprise — you need to read this Rhode Island ghost story for yourself!
