If you believe in ghosts, chances are you love exploring haunted places. What follows is a short list of the most haunted places in New England. The question is this. Are you brave enough to go exploring?
The Kennebunk Inn (Kennebunk, Maine)
Originally built as a private residence, the Kennebunk Inn opened as a tavern in 1928. It is said to be haunted by Silas Perkins as well as various other apparitions. Perkins, the inn’s former auditor and watchmen, loves to play pranks on guests and employees alike. Most especially in room number 17.
Snedeker Demon House (Southington, Connecticut)
This funeral home turned private residence is the home that inspired the book (and movie) “The Haunting in Connecticut.” It’s where Ed and Lorrain Warren, both paranormal investigators, assisted the Snedeker family of ridding their ghosts in 1986.Lizzy Borden Bed & Breakfast (Fall River, Massachusetts)
Take a tour of one of the most haunted houses in Massachusetts. It’s the home of Lizzy Borden, who is said to have killed her father and stepmother in 1892. If the thought of sleeping with ghosts doesn’t bother you, you can even book accommodations for the night. Photos are allowed on this tour.
New Hampshire State Hospital (Concord, New Hampshire)
Originally referred to as the “New Hampshire Asylum for the Insane,” locals will be the first to tell you that this abandoned medical facility is one of the most haunted buildings in the state. It was a horrible place to receive treatment, closing because of many allegations of neglect.
Today, there are claims of elevators starting up on their own, echoing footsteps in the halls, files that fly off tables and the feeling that someone is always watching.
These are four of the supposedly most haunted locations in New England. There’s absolutely no reason to wait until Halloween to visit them. If you’re in the area and looking for something scary to do, why not consider stopping by? The ghosts are waiting!
