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.
