The port city of Newport, Rhode Island has one of the creepiest historical legacies in the country. Known for its miles of sandy beaches, breathtaking cliff walks, and historical mansions of the Vanderbilts, the real foundations of Newport were built amidst a dark reality of disease, death, and despair.  The grim remnants of such a horrifying period in the cities history echo in stories of ghosts and unexplained activity that give it the reputation of being the most haunted city in the state.  Mists that fail to evaporate appear unexpectedly, with apparitions and sightings of forsaken ghost ships breaking through the midnight fog.  This is when reports of tragic figures of Newport’s past are most prevalent.

Historic mansions, quaint abodes, and stunning seaside vistas serve as the backdrop for this hugely popular coastal town, but just like the unexplained mists, they also mask a horrific history that has solidified Newport’s reputation as an otherworldly hotspot.

Known by locals as the oldest neighborhood in the city, Easton’s Point can boast the terrifying title of being the site for the largest public mass execution in the history pf America, dating back to 1673. The loyal crew of one of the history’s most ruthless pirate were executed right Easton’s point, after the HMS Greyhound–a 20-gun British warship–captured the ship and crew. Following their untimely demise, their rotting, tarred bodies were left dangling through the entire steamy summer.  The purpose? To send a message to all other pirates that the city of Newport was not open to pirates.  Unfortunately, the unforeseen consequences of these actions opened the gates of the land of the living to the poor souls of those same pirates whose bodies were never given a proper burial, thus ensuring that they would haunt the city for all time.
