Ghost Stories in Voluntown, CT

Something Fishy is in the air

Welcome to Voluntown, where the ghosts are as plentiful as the trees. Nestled in the northeastern corner of New London County, Voluntown boasts a population of just over 2,500 living residents and countless more who have passed on…but never really left.

One of the most famous haunted locations in Voluntown is the Pachaug Cemetery, which dates back to the 1700s. Visitors have reported seeing spectral figures lurking among the gravestones, and some have even reported hearing disembodied voices whispering in their ears.

But the cemetery isn’t the only place where you might encounter something otherworldly in Voluntown. The town is also home to the supposedly haunted Dow House, a historic home that has been the site of numerous paranormal investigations over the years. Visitors have reported hearing strange noises and seeing unexplained apparitions while exploring the house’s dimly lit rooms.

Another spooky spot in Voluntown is the former state fish hatchery. Locals say that the hatchery is now overrun by ghostly fish that swim through the air and vanish without a trace. While this may sound like an urban legend, many people claim to have seen these spectral fish for themselves.

Legend has it that the hatchery is haunted by the ghost of a former employee who died in a tragic accident on the property. The man was reportedly working alone at the hatchery when he fell into one of the large trout tanks and drowned. Visitors and employees have reported seeing the man’s ghostly figure near the tanks, as well as hearing his ghostly voice calling out for help.

Of course, there are also plenty of stories about ghosts who haunt the woods and fields around Voluntown. Some say that the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier still patrols the area, while others report seeing strange lights hovering in the sky late at night.

Despite all the ghostly activity, Voluntown is still a great place to live…if you don’t mind sharing your space with a few spectral neighbors. Just remember, if you’re out for a stroll on a moonlit night and you hear a faint whisper in your ear, don’t be too quick to dismiss it as your imagination. It might just be one of Voluntown’s many resident ghosts, eager to make your acquaintance.
