Join us as we explore The Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street on Thursday, September 15th at 6:30. Registration begins September 1st.
Join author, William J. Hall as he discusses the Birdgeport poltergeist, a true and terifying story that is the subject of his books, "The World's Most Haunted House: The True Story of the Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street."
In this unprecedented program, the story of the 1974 Bridgeport, Connecticut poltergeist is at last revealed. A crowd of more than 2,000 onlookers gathered. National media reported jumping furniture, floating refrigerators, and attacking entities. Decades after the publicity quieted, more than 40 hours of never-before released interviews with police officers, firefighters, and others tell the story as it actually unfolded:
Relive the experience, the terror, the rampant emotions, and the explainable events that took place in that house as they happened.
Return to 1974 and feel the Lindley Street experience from the inside. Find out why it is deemed the haunting that should have brought the paranormal into mainstream science.
Ages 16+ only.
