As you may have noticed here at Damned Connecticut, we love to hear from you readers about your experiences with the odd and unusual throughout the state. Be it a haunting, an unusual place, an old legend, or even a picnic with the Melon Heads, we’re always interested in what you have to offer.
To that extent, Kate’s Friend has “volunteered” her Husband’s experiences while working at Remington Arms in Bridgeport, an abandoned old factory complex purported to be haunted. Since it is off limits to the public, it’s cool to get a firsthand report from someone who has actually been inside the complex for an extended time.
According to Husband:
Remington Arms was a really creepy place to be working in even during the day… At first I wasn’t sure it WAS Remington Arms because we were told we were working at General Electric.. Once we were actually in the building and strange things started happening we realized that GE was renting a small section of the Remington Arms buildings…
The strange experience I had was in the restroom… I was alone. The door did not open so I knew no one came in or out and I saw a shadow move across the room like someone else was there. We heard many strange noises in areas of the building where none of our workers were, and since it was the middle of the day and the building supervisor was there we didn’t think of vandals or drug dealers or anything like that.
Another experience I had was when I was taking pictures for my wife (who is obsessed with creepy places) there was a dead bird on the floor in one of the rooms, which wouldn’t have been unusual in an old abandoned building if it wasn’t completely mutilated and half scattered across the room.
To be honest with you I haven’t heard any stories about Remington Arms until we looked up the location online (I am completely convinced that my experiences were supernatural, and so I asked my wife to research the area when I was still at work…) That is when we put it together that “GE” was actually “Remington Arms” and the shadowy figures that I saw in the bathroom have been seen by others also.
Now that I know the history of the buildings and the sightings that other people have seen throughout the years I am totally convinced that my experiences were nothing but supernatural… No explanation for the shadows and sounds that went on in that building.
Thanks to Husband (and Friend) for sharing his experiences!
Friend and Husband sent along a pair of interesting pics from Remington Arms —
They’re not sure what it is, and unlike many other “spirit” ectoplasm or orb-type photos, this is in broad daylight. Dust? Smoke? Or something else?
And this one —
They have no idea what that it is at the end of the hallway … Husband says there was no one in the area when he took it, but it almost looks like a person at the end of the hall.
Thanks again to Friend and Husband for sending this stuff along!
