After the lack of, well, anything paranormal during our tour of the Lizzie Borden House on Sunday, I somehow managed to talk my poor
scaredy cat husband into going on a local ghost tour. I love ghost tours because they’re a combination of history and paranormal and he loves….um, well, nothing about them. He loves history – just not when ghosts are involved. But despite the fact he is scared to death that he didn’t really want to go, he said yes when I asked him to go. So, I just left it at that. Usually I have to drag him, literally, to that sort of stuff.
We debated which tour to go on, but ultimately decided on Newport. The last time we went on the Newport tour was almost two years ago, which you can read all about here if you like.
The tour took us around some haunted locations including blood alley, The White Horse Taven and The Pilgrim House Inn, which is apparently haunted by a little girl named Jessica. The tour was 90 minutes and started from the Marriot and ended at Trinity Cemetary.
Overall, the tour was uneventful except for one weird light anomaly in Washington Square. Washington Square is part of the Newport Historic District and was the site of many hangings and apparently screams can still be heard coming from the square late at night.
I took three pictures in a row (within seconds of each other) and the anomaly started to appear at the top of the first picture and then got a little lighter in the second picture. By the third -it was gones. Check it out:
It could have been anything I suppose, but I found it interesting. The tour was fun and educational and I would do it again in a heart beat.
They run the tours nightly & you can check out Ghost Tours of Newport website for more info.
