Yankee Classic: Ghost Town

So far no venturesome soul has essayed to reopen the vein of metal. The Indian burial grounds are familiar to those who tramp through their sylvan fastness, the same today as yesteryear; but the spirits, or whatever they were, descend no more to the plains of that peaceful valley.

    If i,m not mistaken the place is near Canaan Conn., buit is on private property and you need permission to go there.

    I think this is a town in CT called “Dudleytown.” I have heard that real evil resides there. The Warrens (famous CT ghost hunters) have investigated there. They have reported a history of people becoming spacially disoriented while there. Also, there are no animals around and no sound of birds singing–creepy!

    No, this is not Dudleytown, which is in Connecticut. The White Mountains are in New Hampshire, and the place spoken of I have visited. I believe it should be left alone, as it is a sacred place, and the only reason I went there was out of respect and to honor those who were buried and those who disappeared.

    I recall reading this in a collection of old Yankee stories and think it’s an awesome campfire story but don’t think it’s much more than that! If i am wrong and it’s a real town, not Dudleytown please let me know. I’d love to know more!

    This is one of those stories that you’ll continue to think about long after you’ve read it.

    This story inspired me to write a song based on the events. The song is called “A Blue Sky Turned to Rust.” I released it on my latest album, The 45th Parallel, with my Folk duo Neptune’s Car.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Yankee Magazine!
