Haunted Places in Vermont

  • Southern Vermont College, Bennington

    Southern Vermont College, Bennington
    Located on Mount Anthony. There are great photos of supernatural images, like the statues, you can see in the photo. The seminary closed and turned into a co-ed college (southern Vermont college). According to years of students/staff doing night security, this is what haunts the house: the second wife (common), Everett himself (rarely though), and a person in a black hooded robe (most seen). Common occurrence: smoke filled hallways, lights turn on in room that are locked, door/windows unlocked after being locked on the previous security round, footsteps all around the college when no one else is in the building. The 2 main haunts in this mansion is the 3rd floor: Abbey room is burning with energy. Now a classroom, was the sleeping quarters for house staff (maid hung herself.
  • Lake Bomoseen, Bomoseen

    Lake Bomoseen, Bomoseen
    The town of West Castleton now sits abandoned, but it was once home to Irish immigrant slate workers who were fond of crossing Lake Bomoseen to a tavern on the east shore. One night, three men set out for a night of carousing. They never returned. The next morning, their boat was found floating empty. Their bodies were never found. Today, lakeside residents claim that sometimes during a full moon, an unfamiliar ghostly rowboat can be seen moving silently across the lake toward the West Castleton Bay. No oars disturb the otherwise glassy surface. Are these three men still trying to get home?
  • Carburs Restaurant, Burlington

    Carburs Restaurant, Burlington
    A man who once worked there killed himself in the basement. The bullet went through his head and into the wall. You can still see the bullet hole in the basement. Most encounters happen in the basement, which houses the kitchen and tapped kegs under the bar. Waitresses reported their skirts being lifted up from a cold wind. Doors always slam closed, trapping waitresses in the basement's walk-in. Waitresses were told not to even go down in the basement anymore. The basement is also connected to other old buildings in downtown Burlington by various tunnels from the prohibition era. There are a lot of reports of hearing people talking throughout the restaurant when no one is there. The ghost seems to mess mostly with women. A lot of breaking glasses, plates flying off of counters and sudden increased oven temps too. Bartender (female) reported a pyramid of water glasses appearing on the bar, right after she had put the glasses away and turned her back for a second.

Every so often encounters of classic poltergeist activity (things not where they were left, including being moved from room to room when no-one else was in the house, things falling off shelves, etc.), which eventually culminated in sightings. On rare occasions, witnesses would wake up and see a bluish form, vaguely human-shaped, either looking at them or out the window of the rooms (depending on who was encountering the ghost at the time.

There have also been incidents reported during performances of props disappearing with no explanation. 2) The men's' first year dormitory also an evil presence. in the 60s or 70s, young men were holding some sort of occult meetings One of the men insisted that he needed to close the "portal" before they left, but by that time security was there and they tossed them off campus. the door to the attic is padlocked shut. However, lights go on in the attic and footsteps are heard in the middle of the night by the residents on the top floor. The image of the pentagram still exists on the floor despite attempts to replace the wood.
  • Rutland High School

    Rutland High School
    When Rutland High School was first getting built there was a man who operated the cement mixer. He was called Smokey because he smoked like 6 packs a day. Well one day he disappeared. The foreman thought he just took off and didn't give it a second thought. Once the school opened girls started smelling smoke in the girls locker room. At first everyone thought that some one was smoking before gym class. The female gym teacher then stood guard to catch anyone smoking. She never caught anyone but the smoke smell is always there.
  • Hartness House, Springfield

    Hartness House, Springfield
    In 1903 construction of the Hartness mansion began, by 1904 it was complete. There are a series of rooms under the front lawn that James Hartness had built to escape the noise every day life. In the main house the electricity randomly goes out for no obvious technical reason, it usually lasts an hour or two. Objects go missing to be placed some where else, in the basement (especially the housekeeping quarters) you can feel a presence watching you, nothing negative or malevolent, simply there to observe.
  • Spooky Welden Theatre of St. Albans

    Welden Theatre, St. Albans
    What is now a movie theater had had several encounters. The movie theater which used to be a jail has had several strange and unexplained encounters. Several times the projection booths have been a spot of mystery. Movies have started by them selves and voices can be heard in the old booths. The basement, which still has the remains of old jail cells, has the feeling of being watched. An old man with a white sweater has been seen walking around the basement. He is said to be an old homeless person who years ago moved into the basement and lived there. The basement door also has been know to fly open even when latched. Doors that say alarm will sound when opened have opened with out the alarm going off. Overall the theater has a very uneasy feeling to it.
  • Emily's bridge, Stowe

    Emily's bridge, Stowe
    In the 19th century a girl was going to elope with the man of her dreams. (Even though her parents disliked the man entirely) He told her to meet him at the covered bridge nearest to their homes the next day at noon. When she got there no one was there. she waited for hours and he never showed. She was so desperate for his love she committed suicide. Now if you go there at night and drive your car she will sometimes call out for "help" and scratch your vehicle or do something to it as you go through. Also you can see a whitish glowing figure walk up and down the bridge.
  • Averill Stand, Wilmington

    Averill Stand, Wilmington
    Averill Stand Historic Site was built in 1787, and was for many years the stagecoach stop between Bennington and Brattleboro on what is now Route 9. The Averill family managed the stagecoach stand on the site, hence the name Averill Stand, as well as the tavern and Inn. The family cemetery is on a small plot of land adjacent to the old pasture, and contains the bodies of many of the house's former occupants. One of those, Lavina Field Averill, is believed to have died in childbirth in the home, and it' is thought that she may be the spirit who has, several time, placed missing items on the kitchen counter. One visitor reports having seen a young woman in old clothing in the dining room. At night, always between 10:30 and 11:40, the current occupant's dogs run to the back door, barking, and watch someone or something, cross the back yard and walk to the old driveway. Some unseen being repeatedly rings the doorbell on snowy nights, leaving no trace of human footsteps. Perhaps it is Lavina, or perhaps it's Mrs. Brown, the wife of former lumber baron Martin Brown, who lived in the home for many years in the early 1900's, and died there. Mrs. Brown is known to visit at least one of the adjoining houses, in which she also resided. The house is noted for the repeated observations of spirit-sensitive folks for the warmth and friendliness and welcoming feel of the place, which many attribute to the spirits of the house.
