Come have a frighteningly great time!
- The distraught Paugusset 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.
The walk is 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 is strictly limited. Purchasing advance ticket online is recommended.
Cost for advance tickets is $18 per person. Walk-up ticket price is $23 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.
