Strange Hotels in New England

6349559790_a4a3a7cc47_zIn 1952, paranormal investigators Ed and Lorrain Warren founded the New England Society for Physic Research. The pair investigated over 10, 000 cases of paranormal activity around the U.S., the most famous being a haunting in Amityville, Long Island, an event that later inspired the book and film The Amityville Horror. The Warrens also investigated a series of odd and disturbing events that took place in a Rhode Island farmhouse in 1971, a case that inspired the 2013 horror film The Conjuring.

Sorting through the facts, myths, and half-truths surrounding the 1692 witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts, is enough to keep any historian or “bard of the bizarre” content for years. However, the 17th century witch-hunt is only a precursor to the number of strange tales and curiosities found in New England. Puritan cemeteries, haunted inns, ghost ships, abandoned settlements, H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King –this is just a small sampling of what’s discovered in a region known as much for its legends and folklore as it is its clapboard houses and Ivy League schools. Below are 7 haunted destinations in New England.

Pine Hill Cemetery: Hollis, New Hampshire

Nicknamed Blood Cemetery, this bucolic plot in Hollis, NH, holds over 300 hundred gravestones, many of which date back to the 1700s. Ghostly apparitions, floating orbs, strange tapping sounds, and other anomalies have been reported at Pine Hill Cemetery. Pine Hill gets its nickname after the ghost who’s believed to haunt the graveyard –a lost but non-malevolent spirit named Abel Blood.

Abel Blood, a devout Christian and family man, was buried in Pine Hill in 1867, next to his wife, Betsy. While some local accounts claim the “Blood” family was murdered, others state this is only a rumor that began with the first ghost sightings. What’s not contested, however, is the odd phenomenon that is said to take place on Abel Blood’s headstone. There’s a hand carved into the stone –the index finger pointing upward towards heaven. According to legend, the headstone is said to change color at night, and the index finger points down.
