We finally had the opportunity to attend one of Jeff Belangers famous Legend Tripping events.
If you are not familiar with Jeff, you should be. Aside from being a prolific author, host of 30 Odd Minutes and all around good guy. He is also the head writer and researcher for a little show called Ghost Adventures
This event took place at Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI. The mill compound as it is known today is actually comprised of three different buildings that reside alongside the Blackstone River.
Slater Mill, built in 1793, the Wilkinson Mill, built in 1810, and the Sylvanus Brown House, which was built in 1758 and transported to the property many years later.
Many consider Slater mill to be the birthplace of American Industry. This honor was unfortunately earned, in part by the many children that worked at the mill.
They worked under horrific conditions and were often maimed or even killed as a result.
Couple this tragic history with the waters of the fierce Blackstone River and the naturally occurring quartz trapped in the walls of the mill and you may just have the perfect conditions for a haunting.
Some of the paranormal claims include hearing the voices and screams of children and seeing shadows moving about in the darkness. Many people have even reported being scratched.
