The weather couldn't have been more perfect for a haunting New England ghost story Picture yourself alone in your massive four story home across from the treacherous sea in Cohasset. The powerful winds were howling while sending surrounding trees smashing to the saturated ground below.

Friday, July 15, 2016 - 989 Central Street,East Bridgewater
The M.A.P.S. Team was eager to explore the old red farm house which had intrigued us for many years. It was built in 1820 and was situated on 13 acres of lush green, picturesque land. At one time it had an attached barn, which burned to the ground in 1960. This old homestead seemed to welcome us as we stepped up upon the covered veranda. Robert and Carol greeted us at the door and immediately proceeded to give us a tour of the home which was in the process of renovation. We were informed of various claims of unexplainable activity. It was not unusual for the residents to hear strange noises such as banging, whispers and footsteps. Shadows were seen moving across the front room. Frequently the shadow of a young girl was seen exiting the closet. The family had referred to her as "Emily". (Please see 989 Central Street, East Bridgewater, at sidebar to the right).

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 - South Ave Residence #1, Whitman, MA
The sounds of crickets and peepers were evident as we approached this multi family home in Whitman, Ma. We had previously been informed by the residents of many unusual occurrences, which they had both experienced. Since the home was under new ownership, they wondered if this could attribute to the increase in activity. It was common for them to hear footsteps going up and down the basement stairs during daylight as well as evening hours. (Please see South Ave, Whitman at sidebar to right.)
Sunday, July 27, 2012 - Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard
Oak bluffs is a charming picturesque seaside community. It is 1 of the 3 "down island " towns. In the 1880's, it was referred to as Cottage City. Because of its popularity, the name was changed to Oak Bluffs in 1907. Originally, the Campground was situated in a grove of towering oak trees. Appreciating the beauty of the environment, the Methodists flocked to this tranquil area and set up tents. The grove became home to their many religious retreats. Shortly thereafter, the tents were replaced by many charming, elaborately decorated wooden cottages which still stand today delighting all who explore the winding paths and Victorian flavor of yesteryear. During the daylight hours, these cottages are a feast to the eyes with their shocking array of colors and bright overflowing windowboxes. The evening however, casts a totally different almost eerie feeling of mystery and anticipation. Winding paths are engulfed with shadowing trees and the soft glow of interior lights seem to entice passerbys to peek in for a glimpse of days gone by. (Please see sidebar to right.)

Sunday, March 20th, 2011 - Hoosac Tunnel
The Hoosac Tunnel is a railroad tunnel measuring 4.75 miles long which connects one valley to another. It is located in the Western part of the state in a mountainous area where Ma, N.Y, and Vermont meet. Hoosac is an old Native American name which means "people of the long house." It was in the early 1800's that manufacturers realized they needed some way to ship goods from Boston to Western Ma. and on to the midwest. In 1848, Troy and Greenfield Railroad showed a deep interest in tunneling their way through nearly 5 miles of mountainous terrain. This monumental task was hindered by the fact that heavy equipment did not yet exist, and all work had to be done manually. See "Hoosac Tunnel" to right...
