Connecticut’s Most Haunted: 7 Chilling Places in the Constitution State

An old road, an abandoned sanatorium, a former mine turned prison. Connecticut is full of haunted places. Here are seven of the most chilling.

Union Cemetery – Easton

Often described as the most haunted cemetery in America, Union is home to the White Lady, an infamous ghost that leaps in front of cars and floats among the historic graves. Famed paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren wrote a book about Union Cemetery, but the White Lady isn’t only spook. A male spirit with glowing red eyes also calls the 400-year-old graveyard home.

Abigail’s Grille & Bar – Weatogue

Formerly Pettibone’s Tavern, Abigail’s Grille and Wine Bar is reportedly haunted by Abigail Pettibone, an unfaithful whaler’s wife who met a bloody end at the hands of her husband. Employees and guests have seen apparitions they attribute to Abigail, as well as strange things like candles that light themselves and furniture that moves on its own.

Seaside Sanatorium – Waterford

Seaside Sanatorium was originally built to treat children suffering from tuberculosis. Throughout the years, Seaside also served as a hospital and a home for the mentally impaired. The sanatorium is now reportedly haunted by the patients who perished there. Paranormal activity includes orbs, EVPs, and lights in long-abandoned parts of the old hospital.

Ghost Photo: The Haunted Theater

Does this infrared video still, taken at Maine’s historic Biddeford Theater, show a ghostly woman climbing the stairs?

In December 2016, EVP Paranormal of Maine investigated the century-old theater in hopes of finding a spirit. Legend has it the ghost of actress Eva Gray haunts the theater after collapsing and dying backstage in 1904. Is that Eva in the photo?

“I didn’t really believe it, to be honest,” said Caroline Mezoian, one of EVP Paranormal’s co-founders. “But once you see the photo, how can you deny that there’s not something?”

Ghost Queens: Anne of Cleves

On January 6, 1540, King Henry VIII reluctantly married his fourth wife, the German Anne of Cleves. Though Henry had been smitten by Anne’s portrait, he was not smitten by her appearance in person.

“She is nothing so fair as she hath been reported,” the surly king complained.

After just six months of marriage, Henry requested an annulment on the grounds that the union had never been consummated. Anne agreed to the request, and a grateful Henry gave her a generous settlement and thereafter called Anne “the King’s Beloved Sister.” Now, more than 475 years after the ill-fated marriage, ghosts reportedly walk properties bearing Anne’s name.
