In the deepest, darkest woods of Carver, Massachusetts, lies a park unlike any other--known for daytime fun and nighttime fright.
Ellis D. Atwood laid the groundwork for Edaville Railroad back in 1946, when he began purchasing two-foot gauge rails that were being unused in Maine and shipping them to his 1800-acre cranberry plantation in Carver. He used them to run a 5 1/2 mile track around his bogs, initially to transport cranberries but he soon began moving people around with them as well...and within a few years, the Edaville (named after his initials, E.D.A.) Railroad family fun park was born.
But long before Atwood began plucking cranberries from the grounds, the Native Americans knew there was a strange power over this land. Many of their spirits still roam the Edaville bogs and swamplands, and their spectral fires are often reported from those riding the Edaville train.
Not everyone who rode those rails returned safely...some trains wrecked and burned, taking their crew along with them. There is also the house that sits on the property, long rumored to be haunted by the spirit of a former resident who committed suicide in the home. And many of the midway rides at Edaville have been relocated from other closed amusement parks, bringing with them their own attached spirits and stories.
Then there is the ghost that roams the museum building, the former offices of the Ellis D. Atwood Cranberry Company. It was in this building where Atwood, working alone one chilly evening, went to the basement to get the furnace started and perished when it exploded. His widow Elthea has also been seen roaming the grounds in her wedding dress, pining for her lost husband.
Many park employees refuse to be alone in the buildings or out in the bogs at night, and with good reason. Come join us as we Legend Trip one of New England's most unique locations, the FIRST TIME any such event has ever been allowed at Edaville Railroad.
