Scariest Places in New England
This year when you head to New England to see the fall colors change, you can add another item to your itinerary. Why not check out the scariest places in New England since you are already there?
The White Lady of Brownville Road
This ghost story starts out on Brownville Road on Route 11, back in the 1950s or 1960s. There was a young newlywed couple who swerved off the road and the car ended up in the embankment. The man went for help and when he returned there was no sign of his wife. She was never seen alive again. Many, many people have seen the white lady in what looks like a billowy white gown walking down the road and along the Green Bridge.

Eddy House – The High Life Ski Club Lodge
What is now the High Life Ski Club Lodge was originally named the Eddy House and has been haunted since 1874. It was home of Zepaniah eddy and his children named William, Horatio, and Mary. They were a family of mediums and psyshics, even though Zepaniah was ashamed of it. When the children were young they would vanish from their cribs, play with ghost children, and caused all sorts of disturbences in the house. They were kicked out school because they made books fly through the air and would levitate their desks. Zephaniah would beat his children and eventually sold them to a traveling circus show where they were treated with much more abuse for 14 years. Once their father died, the children moved home and turned it into the Green Tavern, an inn for travelers and for spirits. The inn had a reputation for being extremely haunted where nightly séances would occur. Today, it is not uncommon to still hear the ghosts that come looking to communicate with the Eddy children.

Pine Hill Cemetery – Blood Cemetery
Pine Hill Cemetery is often referred to as Blood Cemetery as the entire Blood family was allegedly murdered there in the 1800s. You can visit the gravesite of Abel Blood and see his tombstone. The spirit of the little boy of the Blood family has been seen the most often. He will run out onto the road to stop cars seeming to ask for assistance. There has been reports of orbs and mists, unexplained shadows, trees moving without any wind, and ghostly voices talking when no one is around.
