  • Genre: U.S. History


The Connecticut town’s past gives rise to a book full of “tales of supernatural possibilities . . . as much about history as it is about ghost tales” (The Day).

A hair-raising number of historic haunts—from sea captains who never returned home to servicemen who never left—exist in the half square mile of Groton Bank. Ghostly soldiers of the Revolutionary War roam the Mother Bailey House and march through the basement of a nearby home, and former residents rouse sleepers at the Avery-Copp House. Fort Griswold was the site of a grisly 1781 battle, and phantom footsteps from an unknown entity echo on the first floor of the Ebenezer Avery House. Unseen inhabitants swing open doors at the Submarine Veterans Club, and long-dead guests add unexpected life to the parties at the Fleet Reserve. Join author Hali Keeler and her team as they navigate Groton Bank’s paranormal history.
