Amston - Ames Rd. - During the revolutionary war, after Gen. Washington met
with the French General at the War College in Lebanon, the two armies set out
marching to the battlefields of New York and New Jersey. They camped overnight
in what is now Amston. The area is a hillcrest at the end of Ames Rd., on the
left. Stone fire circles are in evidence, left by the troopers, as are
occasional artifacts found by hikers. However, while they were encamped in
Amston, above the lake, a strange malady overcame the troops, and over thirty
were known to have died. At the time, old Indian curses were blamed, and the
dead were buried on site. Over the years, luminescent orbs, moans, and ghostly
shadowy figures have been seen about the hill. Hikers in the area have related
the feeling of being followed, and dogs with them run scared and cower for no
apparent reason. - September 2004 UPDATE: it is pretty much impossible to
explore and do a ghost hunt there. It is a waste of time to go before
arrangements are made. NOTICE: This entire portion of the lake is the subject
of intense local paranormal study, both from Revolutionary War era and ancient
Indian hauntings, therefore extreme discretion and courtesy is advised!

Middlebury - Little Peoples Village - Located in the woods, on the side of an
abandoned road (possibly old Waterbury Road), is a village of sorts, a number
of very complex and detailed small stone houses standing about three to five
feet high built into the hill. Some of the buildings are A framed, others are
more traditional, they have the appearance that they are gutted and
"condemned", inside of the little houses are elaborate room
structures, staircases; pathways lead up hills through the woods to them, tiny
pathways. The area is overgrown. Built into the side of a rock is a
"thrown" a life sized chair of sorts with several symbols around it-
the legend is that if you sit on it you will die in 7 years- this is only
legend though. Next to the village itself is the ruins of an old stone house
with iron bars on the window... very negative energy comes from here. In the
evening the road to the village is so loaded with negative energy that it is
virtually impossible to travel it... it is soundless and still. En route to the
village and at the village itself several pentagr ams can be seen from time to
time on the ground. Overall a very eerie, very negative feeling pervades the
area of this extremely mysterious village in the woods.- November 2003 Update:
It is actually right off I84 exit 17 on the Middlebury/Waterbury line. All the
other info is pretty accurate, there is really only one little house left and
that is partly destroyed. The stone house is still there and so is the thrown.
There is also a cellar that you can go down into. Place is very spooky. Legend
is that there was a man and women who lived there and she was crazy and thought
she was the Queen of the little people. She made her husband build her a thrown
and all the little houses. Then she killed her husband and herself or he killed
her and himself. There are different variations of the story.
Middletown - CVH Maintenance Building - Recent research reveals that the Cotter
Building at CVH was originally the site of an Indian burial ground. Local
Indians had a village overlooking the Ct. River before the arrival of white
men. This explains the often heard strange noises, chanting, drumbeats, lights
turning on and off, and doors opening and closing on their own accord. Mists
have been reportedly seen moving about inside of the firehouse portion. -
WARNING!! Trespassers WILL be arrested.

Milford - Charles Island - located off of Silver Sands state beach has a long
and mysterious history. It was a point of conflict between the English settlers
and the Wepaowag Indians, who regarded the island as sacred ground, connected
with spirits. Following the defeat of the tribesmen, the Chief put a curse on
the island, pronouncing "Any shelter will crumble to the Earth, and he
shall be cursed" About 25 years after the defeat of the Wepauwags, the
notorious pirate Captain Kidd, who knew the islands reputation, is known to
have buried part his treasure on the island, and treasure hunters from around
the country still look for this stash today. It is told that in 1850 two men
found the treasure, only to run away from the island screaming about a
"screeching, flaming skeleton descending from the sky" They spent the
remainder of their lives in an asylum. At the end of the 18th century, a
monastery was built on the island. After the monks moved in, dismissing the
curse as "pagan savagery" and "Indian folklore", a series
of mysterious deaths, suicides, and bouts of insanity, and subsequent
intensifying hauntings forced them to abandon the monastery. The crumbling
ruins can still=2 0be seen today. In the 1950s and attempt was made to open a
seaside restaurant and lodge on the desolate island. A devastating and lethal
fire, still to which cause remains unknown, ended whatever building projects
scheduled for the Island, and no one has built upon it since. All that is left
from this is a tumbling brick wall. Today, reports from hikers abound about
seeing glowing specters flitting through the trees, disembodied voices, and
phantom monks making processionals through the monastic ruins. One also hears
of seeing nighttime Indian festivals and hearing jazz music near the old site
of the restaurant. The only access to the Island is a mysterious causeway that
only surfaces from the sea at low tide. People, in the summer months, frequent
the island for its beach and seclusion, as well preserved trails. The ghosts
wont bother you if you respect them. Just don’t build, and DONT DIG!

establishment would have a history. In Founders Hall, which used to contain a
dormitory on the 3rd floor, it is said that one or more students killed th
emselves. Late at night, the second and third floors have a significantly
unsettling feeling about them, and without the lights on, one cannot see to
from one side of the hallways to the other. Doors seem to open and shut on
their own, and light footsteps, like someone sneaking about, can often be
heard. Though these occurrences may be quite freaky, any spirits that may
inhabit the area do not seem malicious. There is also a system of tunnels that
runs beneath the school (this is no rumor, these tunnels EXIST). Footsteps of
person sprinting can often be heard at late hours, and some have reported
seeing a man with straight black hair standing motionlessly at the end of one
tunnel, staring intently at the wall. Visitors are warned not to go in these
tunnels alone, as whatever is there seems rather unwelcoming. Some persons who
decided to go alone came out with scratches and bruises on their arms and
chest. The Health Center has been known to harbor a woman in white who tends to
sick students at night. One student reported waking up in the early morning (~3
AM) and being given water by a woman in white. When she woke up later, she
spoke to the nurse on duty. The nurse told her that she had been the only one
working all night. The woman in white could possibly have been an early
headmaster's wife, who died young and spent time caring for ailing students in
the health center.
Woodbury - Episcopal Church - The cemetery behind the church harbors an
unwanting spirit that doesn't want people to enter the cemetery. It chased
