Ed and Lorraine Warren have taken students to Dudleytown Ghost Town in Cornwall Bridge Connecticut many many times over the years. The trips have always been for training purposes only.
If anyone is on or near the property, your car, bike, motorcycle (etc) will be impounded and you will be arrested on site by either local or state police. Heavy fines are also being issued to those caught on the premises. This property is privately owned. Due to the recent fire that burned several acres, the property has been closed for public use.
The Dudleytown story is very long and complicated. The Dudley family was besieged with horrible occurrences the minute they moved there because of an 18th century curse on their family. The land seems to have absorbed the curse, and families who have lived there since have also had problems.
Recently there have been some serious accidents concerning people returning from Dudleytown so I implore you to BE VERY CAREFUL and take some holy water with you!
Dudleytown is basically located on the back side of the same mountain that Mohawk Ski Resort is on. The side road used to be called Dark Entry Road, but now I think the sign is now Bald Mountain.
I do not advise going there at night for several reasons:
- It’s creepy enough in the daytime.
- It will be next to impossible to find the ruins in the dark.
- Besides the psychic phenomenon, the place attracts some real weirdoes (our apologies to all weirdoes reading this message!)
Now for the actual directions:
Below are directions provided by Ed and Lorraine. Before you go, or attempt to go to Dudleytown you should be warn that may be arrested for trespassing and/or parking. The fines expensive and may cost you more than its worth.
Get a map of Connecticut and find the village of Cornwall Bridge. It’s in the NW corner of the state, just west of Mohawk Mt. From Cornwall Bridge, go south on rt. 7 for 1-2 miles to the jct. of Route 45. Route 45 comes as a fork in the road with 45 going off to the left. After getting on 45, drive slow because the next turn is only about 1/2 mile further.
It is a left hand turn and last I heard was a road called Bald Mountain Road. This road is narrow and a steady climb for about a mile till it dead ends at the top. Park at the top (but not in anyone’s yard) and walk in on the trail that begins at the end of the road. The initial part of this trail is usually very muddy. After a short walk, you will notice some stone walls on the right that I think are part of the old village.
On your left and not as obvious are the remains of the old village. Very little structure (if any) remains of the buildings. All that does remain are holes representing the foundations of these buildings.
These foundations, although within 20 feet of the trail are not all that obvious if you’re not really looking for them. Remember my previous message about being careful.
