One of the lesser-known sites in Connecticut is the Little Genesee Settlement. Genesee is a dual curiosity—an abandoned Colonial-era settlement and potentially an astronomical calendar or spiritual complex of sorts.
One of the most renowned damned places in Connecticut is the abandoned—and allegedly cursed—village of Dudleytown. Over the years, there has allegedly been everything from suicides to demonic possessions, ghostly spirits to dreadful feelings, and all the hysterical drama in between. In short, it has become the Connecticut damnation destination.
For a number of decades, the former popular destination that was Pleasure Beach was a ghost town, slowly rotting away. In 2014, the city of Bridgeport finally got around to cleaning it up and providing public access.
In Groton, there exists an unusual complex that has been dated back to nearly 2,000 B.C., with stone chambers and mysterious formations. Behold: Gungywamp! We finally visit Gungywamp for ourselves to get the story. With lots of pictures, too!
One of the most popular hiking destinations in Connecticut, the story of Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden includes Native American legends, dead bodies and, in our case, a sea of poison ivy!
Little People's Village in Middlebury is a complex of crumbling doll-sized houses that's rumored to be the legacy of a crazy woman who thought she was "Queen of the Little People." As with any good legend, "the story" and "the truth" are two quite different things.
In East Haddam resides the 860 acres of a state park known as Devil's Hopyard, a parcel of land with a possibly damned history, including being one of the many hangouts of . . . perhaps . . . maybe . . . [*insert Church Lady voice*] SATAN!
