Spirits of Milford Ghost Hunt at Haunted Milford Cemetery

8-10:30 p.m. Friday, June 25

Learn the basics of paranormal investigation by taking part in a ghost hunt at haunted Milford Cemetery! During this devilishly fun evening, you’ll:

  • Make your own ghost-hunting pendulum and learn how to use it
  • Use professional paranormal investigation tools like EMF detectors, EVP recorders and dowsing rods
  • Learn how to use cell phone cameras to capture orbs, energy ribbons and other paranormal evidence
  • And much more!

Space will be strictly limited to 20 people to ensure everyone has the best possible and most personalized experience!

Not sure where Fowler Field or the Hotchkiss Bridge are located? Put 57 New Haven Avenue, Milford CT 06460 into your GPS — the address of the Milford Public Library. Fowler Field and the bridge are located behind it!

Our evening will start at the Fowler Field side of the Hotchkiss Bridge, where we’ll meet, make our pendulums, teach you how to use the different ghost hunting tools, and provide other essential information — including what makes Milford so haunted.

From there, we’ll walk three-tenths of a mile up Prospect Street to Milford Cemetery, where we’ll visit the graves of:

  • A angry spirit whose parents stood trial during Connecticut’s Colonial witch trials
  • A former Connecticut governor who was a witch trials prosecutor
  • The “weeping woman” who may also be Milford’s Cemetery’s mysterious White Lady
  • The Revolutionary War smallpox victims — whose ghosts many claim to see!
  • Young Mary Fowler, whose infamous epitaph expresses her state of being “ripe” but now “rotten, sent to her grave and soon forgotten.”

Blending stories about Milford history with those of the macabre, we’ll also use our ghost hunting tools to look for the spirits of:

  • 1-year-old Solomon East, who in 1644 was the first person buried in Milford Cemetery
  • Young mother Sarah Camp, who died four days after giving birth to twins
  • And the Reverend Peter Prudden — Milford’s founder and first minister, who was by no means ready to leave “his little flock” when he died at at age 56 in 1656 

Because of the limited space, early registration is recommended. Cost is $50 per person.
