Now offering TWO frighteningly great ghost tours in Milford, Conn. …
Tribal Tales of Terror Ghost Walk … New for 2017!
The Iroquois Indians who lived in Milford, Conn., believed in vengeful spirits that attacked and punished those who spoke badly about the dead. The Algonquins cut off their enemies’ fingers and toes, plus performed human sacrifices here. Take our Tribal Tales of Terror tour, and be terrified as you walk through the forested paths where early Milford Indian tribes once lived and hunted. Along this roughly-half mile route, you’ll hear stories about not just these long-gone Indians, but those who swore their spirits would always remain. Participants who desire will also get the chance to try out paranormal investigation tools like pendulums. This roughly 1-hour event is absolutely NOT for those easily frightened, as the undead creatures that so frightened the Indians still might be lurking. The walk starts near the entrance to Wilcox Park, which is located in the parking lot of the public boat launch at the head of Milford Harbor, behind the Milford Public Library.
Spirits of Milford Ghost Walk … Our original walk, now in its fourth year!
- The distraught Paugasset Indian squaw who, 400 years ago, strangled and killed her two young sons near Milford Harbor
- The three deadly curses cast on Charles Island, including one made by Captain Kidd
- Why 291-year-old Capt. Stephen Stow has never left his house on High Street
- The accused Colonial witch buried in Milford Cemetery
- And so many other unexplainable and frightening tales
Blending the macabre with Milford history, this spirited, lantern-lit walk follows a roughly 1.15-mile loop through downtown Milford, including stops at some of the city’s oldest homes and Milford Cemetery. Participants who desire also get the chance to try out paranormal investigation tools like EMF detectors and dowsing rods. Starting from the Factory Lane side of the Hotchkiss Bridge (that connects to Fowler Field), this tour is appropriate for all ages. Sidewalks line the route, making it stroller and wheelchair friendly.
Both the Tribal Tales of Terror and Spirits of Milford ghost walks are led by Milford-based writer and storyteller Cindy Wolfe Boynton, a journalist, playwright, actor and author of “Connecticut Witch Trials: The First Panic in the New World,” among other titles.
Space on both walks is strictly limited. Purchasing advance ticket online is recommended.
Cost for advance tickets is $15 per person. Walk-up ticket price is $18 per person. Children 4 and under are free.
Parking is available throughout downtown Milford. But one of the most convenient places to park is Fowler Field, behind the Milford Public Library (57 New Haven Ave., Milford CT 06460). Once at Fowler Field, with the library at your back, you’ll see the Hotchkiss Bridge on the right, crossing the Wepawaug River. To get to the entrance of Wilcox Park/Milford boat launch for the Tribal Tales of Terror Ghost Walk, turn right after entering Fowler Field. Then, turn left and follow the road that runs alongside the Wepawaug River. You’ll see signs for the boat launch and Wilcox Park, which are just ahead on your right.
