WHY IS PROVIDENCE SO HAUNTED?


UNCOVER PROVIDENCE’S TORTURED PAST AND TORMENTED PRESENT



Known s a bastion of “Hope”, the original motto of Rhode Island, the settlers of the colony founded the Providence Plantations to escape from religious persecution and find a place where they could worship freely, away from the Massachusetts Bay Colony.  Tragically, the beacon of light transformed into a black hole, eventually becoming a gateway for otherworldly visitors, shocking hauntings, and numerous accounts of the unexplained.  The pull of darkness was so intense that it began to attract, like an evil magnet, the world’s most famous horror writers who were destined for notoriety because of their unusual obsession with the morbid and the macabre.  Even these giants of horror were finally doomed to lives of torment and torture due to their fixation on all things supernatural.


THE DARK SIDE OF A COLONIAL CITY WITH A FORSAKEN HISTORY AND A TERRIFYING FUTURE


Dive into the disturbingly darker side of the history of Providence to discover the reasons former infamous residents such as Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker, and H.P. Lovecraft searched and found ghostly inspirations for terrifying tales in the town’s tormented buildings and alleyways.


Trek cautiously down the sordid streets of this colonial city and attempt to encounter the ghosts of soldiers in Revolutionary war uniforms whose dearly departed souls haunt Brown College’s University Hall.  Find out firsthand what it feels like to come face-to-face with terrifying hauntings that have plagued Providence locals and visitors for centuries.

Used as an emergency hospital to treat soldiers during the Revolutionary War, the echoes of pain, dying, and death have soaked into the very foundations of Brown College’s University Hall. Hundreds of years later,  reports of strange smelling scents wafting from the hall are documented by students and staff.  These are speculated to be the stench of dead, decaying bodies, that historians recount were left behind when countless soldiers tragically met their bitter ends on the very grounds of the University Hall.  Appearances of an apparition resembling a long-dead revolutionary soldier create quite a bone-chilling disturbance when its sightings are quickly passed along and transformed from rumor into fact as countless students tell the tale of spotting it in one of the building’s windows. Even more terrifying are the sporadic, but well-documented account of spirits of soldiers roaming the halls.

Join us and experience firsthand the unspeakable horrors that plague the site of this former makeshift hospital, and dive into the eerie history of this historic building..
