POLL: Do You Think There's A Ghost In The Meeting House?
In a couple of weeks, a group of paranormal investigators will report on what, if anything, they found Saturday night at Lynnfield's Old Meeting House. But why wait? Let's hear what you think!
Over the weekend, a team of paranormal investigators visited Lynnfield's 1714 Old Meeting House, and a full account of their visit - as well as an interesting historical detail or two - can be found by checking out today's article and photo gallery from the evening at this link. For example, it turns out that on Sunday, May 4, 1777, the Reverend Benjamin Adams, a Lynnfield father of seven, actually died in his pulplit in the Old Meeting House - presumably mid-sermon.
In general, the Old Meeting House has played a crucial role in the town's history and character over the past three centuries. If there is going to be a ghost in Lynnfield, this place is an excellent candidate for it.
So what do you think - are there ghosts in the Meeting House or is your local editor showing that he's got bats in his belfry by running this question? Answer in the poll below!
Also - if you've got some spooky story about your own house in Lynnfield to share, go right ahead and post it in the comments box below. A fair number of houses in town are more than a century or two old. I'd love to read all about it - and I even tried finding a few stories like that from readers last Halloween but came up empty. So, let's see if the second time is the charm.
