If I were inclined to write a ghost story, Norwich, Connecticut would make the perfect setting. Certain houses in the city dating back to the 1700's lend themselves wonderfully well to a haunting. And there are places in town, notably the cemeteries, where one can feel a sense of dread even in the bright light of the noonday sun.
If local lore can be trusted, there have been some actual hauntings around town over the years. I’ve heard that one of the houses on the Norwichtown Green has been continually visited by a spirit of a prominent family member from the days of the settlement. Apparently this individual died from a rattlesnake bite. (Rattlesnakes used to slither about in the meadows there.) I was once a long-term resident of a 250-year-old house on the Green, not far from the one that is haunted, but the only paranormal activity I experienced was the nocturnal song fests of some inebriated bivouacking Revolutionary War re-enactors.
