Haunted History of New England
This is a one hour slide presentation that also incorporates video footage. The presentation melds historical fact together with legend and myth to produce an interesting and fascinating 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, Nine Men's Misery in Cumberland Rhode Island, 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.
Christopher Daley has been lecturing all over New England for over 25 years on historical topics of interest; at libraries, historical societies, schools and all sorts of clubs and organizations!
Mr. Daley is currently a history teacher in the Silver Lake Regional School System in Kingston Massachusetts. He holds a B.A. and an M.A. from Bridgewater State University in Political Science and History.
