My grandmother used to speak of the Devils Hopyard when i was growning up.She had always lived in Yalesville/Meriden,and Wallingford areas.She told me you never go in there because you'd never come back out and that people had seen things and gone mad that did.But i never found much to support that either.It would be interesting to know if anyone knows where to obtain more info.
The Black dog was something that she strongly believed in.I had heard from her many years ago that Hanging Hills wasn't the only area that a black dog ghost had been seen.
Of course i also had gone with my Grandmother many times to Lymans Orchard and the older fellows that (and ladies) would also talk about Green Lady cemetary,Dudley Town and Old mans Mountain.Alot of the old haunts in Connecticut.But the bigest part of their conversation seemed to revolve around the Black dog.
I even remember newspaper articles about it.I have heard the dog stays close to the area of Castle Craig.
But suppossed reports of other Black dogs have surfaced in other Conn towns.I haven't checked into that but maybe sometime i will have to check it out.
