Virtual Vermonter - Vermont Haunts

While 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...

Haunted Places in Vermont
Not a whole lot of detail, but a large listing of hauntings naming town, building and nature of haunting. Many of the inclusions here are for haunted college buildings, inns and more.

Hartford Railroad Bridge Haunting
A story on ghost-hunter Stephen Marshall, dealing in particular with the haunted railroad bridge in Hartford.

The Vermont Ghost Guide
Joseph A Citro's book covers ghostly occurrences in Vermont. The book is organized alphabetically by town, and includes:

  • a poltergeist raining stones on a hapless North Pownal farm;
  • Northfield’s Phantom Gravedigger;
    a Ryegate ghostly door that appears and vanishes;
  • Charles Dickens’s ghost guiding a writer’s hand in Brattleboro;
  • a doppelganger’s prediction of death in Cavendish;
  • the Midnight Cow, haunting the highways;
  • a miner’s specter, embedded in stone;
  • and much more...

White House Inn of Wilmington
AllStays provides info on the White House Inn of Wilmington, haunted by the spirit of Mrs. Martin Brown. The Inn itself makes the most of it by scheduling a ghost hunt and seance on Halloween weekend.

Check out Vermont's most famous covered bridge, haunted by the ghost of Emily, a jilted lover who shakes cars and slashes at people with invisible claws. X-Project stakes out the bridge to check it out...

Shard Villa Mansion
A brief description of the Shard Villa Mansion, a haunted inn in West Salisbury.
