What are some eerie Block Island ghost stories?
Block Island goes back – way back – and as a result, it’s a smorgasbord of spooky tales and creepy ghost stories. Some of our favorite Block Island ghost stories include the one about the southeasternmost lighthouse, where the spirit of a very angry woman is thought to reside. In the early 1900s, her husband was the lighthouse keeper and, one fateful night, he murdered her in a fit of rage. She is very aggressive when it comes to male visitors; she’s been known to lift their beds off the ground, shake them violently, and even lock them in or out of closets and rooms!
Where are some of the most haunted places in Rhode Island?
Rhode Island is one of those states that’s been around forever – almost literally. Sure, it hasn’t always existed as a “state” in the United States, specifically, but its history goes back for centuries and as a result it’s probably one of those most haunted states in the United States! Some of our favorite haunted places in Rhode Island include spots like Fort Wetherill, in Jamestown. Supposedly, once the British took control of the fort in 1776, they were harassed and plagued by a jet-black dog that stared people down and frightened them immensely; he was thought to be an omen of death – not a real dog at all – and to this day, folks still occasionally claim to see him. Another haunted place in New Hampshire is the creepy Perron House, made famous by The Conjuring, a supposedly true account of one of the wildest hauntings in US history that occurred here.
