Bedford Historical Society Program: “The Haunted History of New England”

October 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

History teacher, author, and lecturer Christopher Daley, a frequent guest speaker at the Bedford Historical Society, returns with his talk, The Haunted History of New England. In this presentation, Daley melds historical fact together with legend and myth to produce an interesting, fascinating, and sometimes shocking new look at events that really happened and the stories of haunting that followed them.

The topics addressed in the lecture will be Mercy Brown, “The Vampire” of Exeter, Rhode Island, the cursed Freetown State Forest in Massachusetts, the horrors of the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River Massachusetts, a haunted forest in the wilds of Connecticut, the ghostly happenings at Mount Washington Hotel in New Hampshire, and evidence of ghosts at the John Alden House in Duxbury Massachusetts. The event is free and open to the public.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
