Haunted Happenings by Robert Cahill – review

Haunted HappeningsHaunted Happenings: With New Photos of Old Ghosts, by Robert Ellis Cahill



  • Entertaining stories with interesting illustrations and photos
  • A few stories do not appear to be historically accurate.
  • Ideal for anyone planning a vacation in New England, or looking for some well-known ghosts to investigate.

Haunted Happenings includes some great stories of New England (USA) ghosts.

If you’re looking for folklore and legends as a starting point, this book is better than the average.  The stories can be chilling, and they’re well told with interesting historical details.

Many of these tales were meticulously researched, with documents and photos to support them.

However, other stories — or aspects of them — may be more folklore than fact.  That said, most of these stories have at least some foundation in truth.

The author is well-known as a storyteller, and this book is among his best.  It’s great book for a ‘good scare’ around Halloween.

In addition, if you’re a ghost hunter, Cahill interviews people with powerful stories.  These are some excellent starting points if you’d like to research New England’s classic ghost stories.
