Autumn in New England is one of the best times of year to visit one of the prettiest parts of the US. But let’s face it. With a hint of chill in the air and the crunch of dead leaves under your feet (oh wait…was that something you heard rustling in the near distance?), heading to New England during the fall season can lead to some pretty hair-raising encounters. Perhaps spookiest of the New England states is Massachusetts, where a fascinating and sometimes bizarre history amounts to just the sorts of chills and thrills to make for a most memorable Halloween.
