Where History and Hauntings Meet

Preston, Connecticut is a small town with a rich history dating back to the early 1700s. But along with its storied past comes a fair share of ghost stories and paranormal legends.

One of the most famous haunted spots in Preston is the Ekonk Cemetery, which is said to be home to several restless spirits. The cemetery is allegedly haunted by the ghost of a woman in white who has been seen wandering among the graves, particularly on foggy nights. Some witnesses have also reported strange mists or orbs of light in the area, as well as the feeling of being watched or followed.

One of the most famous ghost stories in Preston, CT associated with Ekonk Cemetery involves a group of teenagers who dared to venture into the cemetery at night. They claimed to have seen the woman in white and fled in terror, but when they returned to their car, they found that it wouldn’t start. As they tried to push the car out of the cemetery, they heard a ghostly voice whisper “get out” in their ears.

Other eerie occurrences reported at the cemetery include the sound of footsteps following visitors, the feeling of cold spots or sudden temperature drops, and unexplained smells of flowers or tobacco. Some even claim to have seen apparitions of soldiers and horses, harkening back to the site’s history as a battlefield.

Despite its creepy reputation, Ekonk Cemetery remains a popular spot for ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts. Many believe that the spirits haunting the cemetery are simply restless souls who have not yet moved on from this world.

Another eerie spot in Preston is the old Preston Schoolhouse, which has been abandoned for decades. Legend has it that the schoolhouse is haunted by the ghost of a former student who died under mysterious circumstances. Visitors to the schoolhouse have reported hearing strange noises and feeling a sudden drop in temperature, even on warm summer days.

Despite the spooky legends that surround Preston, it remains a charming and picturesque New England town, full of history and character. But if you’re feeling brave, a visit to the Ekonk Cemetery or the old Preston Schoolhouse might just send a chill down your spine.
