better known for Currier and Ives than Poe and King, Vermont is not
without a very healthy ghost population. Inns, colleges, covered bridges...
the idyllic landscape contains its share of creepy places and chills
down the spine. Lest there be any doubt: under cover of night, greens
turn to black; under the guise of shortened days, greens turn to the
blood red of dying leaves. The following links provide a number of
scary (and one fun, one furry) links to Vermont Haunts:
