I thought we had a "creepy Connecticut" thread on here but guess not. Has anyone else heard of this? Any eastern US FTMBers who've been there?August 30, 1971, several students of parapsychology made the first of three visits to Bara-Hack, a Connecticut village that had long been abandoned and was rumored to be haunted. They sought documentation and photographic evidence of these stories.
After setting up a base camp in a nearby state park, they embarked on an investigation that would change their lives forever.

Relatively well known is the lost settlement of Bara Hack in Pomfret, Connecticut, otherwise known as the "Village of Voices". What is less well known is that the town of Scituate, R.I., has its own version of Bara Hack...of sorts. Actually, all that remains is a couple of crumbling foundations of what once may have been a two story farmhouse and an adjoining barn, located quite a distance along an overgrown wooded path, along Rt.12 (also known as Tunk Hill) in the southwest section of Scituate. Although the exact history of the foundations remains a mystery, it was most probably an antiquated farm residence which was allowed to fall to neglect after the advent of the Scituate Resevoir, in the early part of the 20th century. During the early 1970's, a teenage lad and some of his buddies began to frequent the spot, and began affectionately referring to the area as "Grantchester Meadows", after the title of a piece on a Pink Floyd album ("Umma Gumma")...and the name just kind of stuck. However, as peaceful and secluded as this area may have been, a few local residents soon began experiencing what could only be decribed as brief "time lapses" while standing in or near the main foundation...an uncanny sensation that they were somehow momentarilly being "included" in the past as well as the present! These sensations have been described as a brief feeling of dizziness, or light-headedness, with no apparent natural explanation. Also in or near the area, the seemingly solid-looking specter of an older gentleman, dressed in what appears to be dark 19th century clothes, has reportedly been spotted. When spoken to, so they say, he will not reply, but will simply continue to stand there eerilly staring...before sometimes instantaneously appearing in another location altogether!
In the early to mid 1970's, this area was also known to have been utilized as a location for some sort of pagan rituals...although the members of this "coven" seemed never to have littered or abused the landscape in any way.
To my knowledge, nothing really unusual has been reported to have taken place in the area known as "Grantchester Meadows" during the past several years. Then again, the area is protected as Watershed Property...so the next time you happen to be out on a rural drive along the Scituate Resevoir, please demonstrate proper respect for the area, and perhaps stop and politely chat with a consevation officer!
