I really enjoy the spooky season, but I enjoy scary stories any time of year. I have always been a fan of scary movies, ghostly tales, and paranormal reports. As a kid, I was running home to watch Ancient Aliens after school instead of soap operas like some of my friends, and nowadays I casually enjoy thriller movies even when I’m home alone. I guess you could say I enjoy the thrill of it all.

When I heard that my local area, the SouthCoast of Massachusetts, was riddled with ghost stories, it had me on the edge of my seat wanting to know more. I'm lucky enough to have a co-worker who is a paranormal investigator to aid me in all things scary.

Tim Weisberg is a paranormal researcher. With his help, we started diving into the spooky side of the SouthCoast and beyond. With his help, I learned about some scary legends of the area that make the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

When there are old towns like the ones we live in, history isn’t far behind, and history does not always want to stay in the past. Some spirits would like to continue to walk among us, which has created a buzz for some residents who have been lucky (or unlucky) enough to witness a frightening occurrence.

Have you heard about the ghosts residing in the New Bedford armory? How about the apparition of the Lincoln Park employee who fell from the Comet coaster? Keep scrolling to found out more, if you dare…
