A Charming Seaside Town with a dark Past

Stonington, CT is a charming little town that sits at the mouth of the Mystic River. With its picturesque coastal scenery, it’s no wonder that this town has been the inspiration for countless artists over the years. But beneath the idyllic exterior lies a dark and eerie past, with tales of ghosts and haunted buildings lurking around every corner.

One of the most famous ghost stories in Stonington, CT involves the old Capt. Nathaniel Palmer House, a historic mansion that dates back to the early 19th century. According to legend, the ghost of Capt. Palmer still haunts the house, walking the halls and making his presence known to those who enter.

The town is also home to the mysterious “Black Bicyclist,” a shadowy figure that has been seen riding his bicycle through the streets at night.

The story of the Black Bicyclist is one that has been passed down through the generations in Stonington. According to legend, the ghostly figure appears late at night, riding a vintage bicycle along the quiet streets of the town. Some say that if you look closely, you can see that the cyclist has no face, just a shadowy void where a face should be.

Many locals believe that the Black Bicyclist is the ghost of a young man who died in a tragic accident while riding his bike in Stonington. Some say he was hit by a car, while others claim that he simply lost control and crashed. Regardless of how he met his end, the Black Bicyclist is said to roam the streets of Stonington seeking some kind of closure.

There have been numerous sightings of the Black Bicyclist over the years, but none as chilling as the encounter reported by a local woman who was driving home late one night. As she approached a stop sign at an intersection, she saw the figure of the Black Bicyclist pedaling towards her. She tried to accelerate to get out of the way, but the bicycle seemed to be gaining on her. Just as she thought she was going to be struck, the figure vanished into thin air.

Some say that if you’re out walking at night, you can still hear the creaking of the vintage bicycle as it rides past. Others claim to have seen the figure standing by the side of the road, watching as they pass by.
