Local Loves: Haunted Overload

A couple of years ago, my childhood BFF Sean had instructed our group of friends to travel to Lee, New Hampshire one chilly Saturday night in mid-October to participate in a mile long haunted trail he’d splurged on tickets for.

Paying Respects to Mercy Brown…

It might not be October yet (but it’s close!) and we may still be a few weeks away from Halloween- but that doesn’t mean I can’t discover/visit and share some of the more creepy, macabre things around the Northeast.
