    The Legend of Lavina Fisher

    Websters dictionary definition of the word Legend says : a traditional story sometimes popularly regarded as historical but is  unauthenticated.

    The Legend of Vampire Girl-Mercy Brown

    Much like the Salem Witch Trials, the New England Vampire panic was born out of fear and the unknown, or maybe even just the fear of the unknown. There were upwards of 80 victims of the panic, Mercy Brown was just one of them, but, one of the most famous and probably the muse for the character Lucy in Bram Stokers novel Dracula.   None of the photos on this page belong to Haunting History Podcast.

    The Exorcist

    Its a couple of weeks before Halloween so we are taking a small break from true crime to focus on the really scary and what’s more terifying then a story about a demon? Released in December 1973 the movie the Exorcist was the highest grossing movie of its time, the movie based loosely on the book by William Peter Platty follows the story of 12 year old Regan played by Linda Blair and her family as they deal and try to overcome some radically disturbing behavior.   None of the photos on this page belong to Haunting History Podcast.

    The Ghost Ship Mary Celeste

    Season 4 Episode 1 When  Captain Briggs set sail in the Mary Celeste he had no idea that he and his family and the ship would become the Ghost Ship that people would still be talking about almost 150 years later. This story has all my favorites for the Halloween season. A ghost ship, history, mystery and maybe even pirates. What happened to the family and crew of the Mary Celeste? Its a mystery we may never know the answer to. The Mary Celeste when she was the Amazon Benjamin Spooner Briggs Briggs Family None of the photos on this page belong to Haunting History Podcast.
