:Wall: Dudleytown is a ghostown is a two-mile square plateau in the southwestern part of Cornwall county, in Connecticut.

I've run across this place in my reading a number of times over the years, and it sounds pretty creepy. It may not show up on a map though, having no living inhabitants.

One researcher said that he'd waited for years to get to Dudleytown, and now that he was here, he couldn't wait to leave.

The town was founded in 1740, by a branch of the Dudley family, a once famous and powerful family from British history, supposedly laboring under a curse before they ever came to the new world.

The whole history of Dudleytown is filled with tales of tragedy and madness.

The last two attempts at living there began with an Irishman named Patrick Brophy and his family in 1892. He moved into the old town area with his wife, two sons, and a flock of sheep. In less than a year his wife and sheep died, and his sons disappeared. :Spaz:

A fire burned down his house, and he was forced to move into town. He died raving about giant animals with cloven hooves, and green spirits that chased and tried to capture him.

The last to live in the area were a Dr. and his wife. They built their own log cabin. I guess this was in the '20's. The husband, a Dr Clark was a busy New York physician, and he and his wife used the cabin for vacation getaways.

While vacationing there one summer, the doctor had to head back to New York on an emergency, leaving his wife to spend the first night alone in the cabin. The Dr. returned within 36 hours. There was no sign of his wife until he reached the cabin. He found his wife alive, but she had become irreversibly mad. For the rest of her life she talked about ghosts, and weird animal-like creatures who were pursuing her. :Spaz:

I live on the West Coast. Are any of you New England types familiar with this place? :ghost:

You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream:
Yet if hope has flown away In a night,
Or in a day, In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

Sadly enough, I live in CT, and have never been. A few years ago I might have gone but the risks nowadays simply aren't worth it. You can't get anywhere NEAR Dudleytown without running into the local police.
I would like to see for myself if any of the stories are true, if it really is half as creepy as everyone says. Maybe eventually people will be let onto the grounds again.

i've been to dudleytown on numerous occations and i would have to say that i believe that it definitely lives up to its name....and this place i had explored both of the versions of what had happened at the town and came up with my own conclusion.....that there are definitely spirits that reside there......there is not really anything up there except for brick walls, foundations and very little sketal remains of what used to be houses.....once you enter so far into the woods, the temperature drops 20 degrees and you will hear no sounds.....very eerie......everytime i have been up there it happens....would like to make a return visit there but would now have to get permission for that...... :headbang: :ghost:

Trespassing is Trespassing....no matter how you look at it or whether or not you get caught. Trespassing is WRONG!

If Dudleytown is closed, then there is a reason. It is best not to ignore that reason because often times....when you do.....someone ends up getting hurt.

Ya know its attitudes like yours PerfectDrug that make it hard on the rest of us. We try to do the right thing and then someone else comes along and breaks the rules anyway. Then the rest of us have to suffer because we are all grouped together in the end. Please if its off limits then leave it that way, Sneaking in is never a good thing. Always get permission or leave it alone.

I am an older investigator. I have not done active investigation for years, but still have some contact with even older investigators. I live in Washington state, and only left it during my tour in Viet Nam in 1973. My contacts are mostly on the east coast, however. It was an old semi-retired investigator who suggested Bara Hack and Dudley Town. He said that he could only personally vouch for Dudley town.

There are other places though. One area that I've heard things about is the sleepy hollow country in N.Y. state. The cemetery there is supposed to be very "odd".

u guys should prolly get ur ideas straight too. that not all of dudley town is closed off. i been going there quite a while. All thru high school we used to camp there on weekends, many people used to. then stupid kids started lighting fires there.tresspassing may not be right, but if i see someplace i want to go, I just walk right in. I have been caught 15 times for tresspassing never even got a ticket not even in danvers state hospital. Everytime i was caught i was told "finish up what i'm doing and leave" I came off wrong with my post on tresspassing.(i was mad after my hunt for the non exsistnant blood cem in putnum) People really do suck that places have to be made off limits, but in 25 years when places like dudley town are condo complexes. I wont wish i had seen it back then.
I don't wear all black and slither into places on my stomach at midnight. i walk right in during broad daylight in front of who ever is there. everyone can pass whatever judgements they want but i know that me and my team have been to places most people just talk about.

Frankly I don't care a bit about B&E, although I suppose that I should. If you visit a place but do no damage, what's the problem?

I only broke into a place once though in the pursuit of the paranormal. it was an old house and I was 17. The house has been flattened, (for condos, ironically), but the place was so bad that no one could have lived in it. My visit there ranks right up there with my time in Vietnam, and I was only in the place for about 15 minutes. Sometimes places are locked up for a reason.
