New England is laden with haunted tales and supposedly haunted places — from private residences, to city halls, to buildings people refuse to occupy as a result of sinister energy. 

Many of these places have hosted ghost hunters and paranormal investigators over the years who have documented hair-raising noises, inexplainable orbs of light and human touches with no human to be seen. 

We’re highlighting seven supposedly haunted spots around New England as we enter October and the season of Halloween. At one house, a detailed injury waiver is required to enter. At another, it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary to see a samurai and monk congregating in a French gothic ballroom. And driving under one particular covered bridge could end in a real fright for the driver.
