The Ghosts of Ridgefield

October is the month of shadows. A time when the veil between the worlds thins and the doorway to and from the Otherworld opens allowing the past to merge with the present. As Halloween approaches, called Samhain {pronounced sow-en} by the Druids, this veil is at its thinnest. In certain places it opens altogether, allowing the spirits of the dead to be seen by all mortals, not just those with the gifted “magick” sight. Hemlock Hills is just such a place. Below is a list of the spirits who have appeared in the past. Who will appear this year? It is up to the wind and the will of the spirits themselves. Click on their names and learn about their mortal lives....
