A Village Of Curses? Supernatural Stories Lure Curious To Colonial Site

By ADRIAN BRUNE, SPECIAL TO THE COURANT

In the far upper corner of northwestern Connecticut, not far from the historic town of Cornwall in the shadow of three mountains, lies a place where only the bravest of hearts tread.Once a colonial village called Dudleytown, it is said to be the site of mysterious deaths of residents in the 1700s and 1800s, unexplained madness in the 20th century and tales of strange noises and wraiths in the past 50 years. Through word of mouth and the reach of the Internet, Dudleytown has become something akin to Connecticut's "Blair Witch" forest.
The story has all the makings of a really great horror story: historical figures, mysterious happenings, ghosts, a curse," wrote author Gary P. Dudley in his 2001 book "The Legend of Dudleytown."Still, these days, about the only thing any supernatural investigator or curious teenager will encounter is a burly state trooper and road barriers, meant to prevent people from entering the private property. The residents of the Dark Entry Forest - near the Dudleytown site - are tired of paranormal investigators, writers, hikers and people interested in the supernatural trespassing on their property..............

I myself grew up in Stonington area. Love all the N.E. area. We now live in Bucks county PA, which has its own batch of ghost stories and legends!

I ate at the harbour view when I was in high school. Another cool spot in CT, I remember going hiking in Devils Hop Yard when I was just out of high school. cool place
