About the Haunt:

The creepy giggling of a little girl. The horrible shouts of a young boy in pain. Shadowy figures seen roaming about the grounds.

All in a day’s work at Slater Mill.

For more than 200 years, Slater Mill has sat on the banks of the Blackstone River. It was built in 1793 by Samuel Slater and was the first successful water-powered, cotton-spinning mill in North America. It is considered by many to be the birthplace of American industry.

It’s also one of its most tragic haunts.

Because of the intricate nature of the work done in the mill and the machinery needed to do it, young children were utilized at Slater Mill and the accompanying Wilkinson Mill. Scores of those children were maimed by the machinery, and some were even killed in industrial accidents that were never recorded.

Now a museum and historical landmark, the buildings of Slater Mill create the perfect storm for paranormal activity. With the ever-churning Blackstone River charging the ions in the air and the stone walls of the mills full of the quartz known to trap energy, the factors are there for a haunt. The mill’s tragic history provides the final ingredient.

Attendees to the Graveyard Shift event will visit the bell tower, where screams are heard when there’s no one else around. You’ll visit the wheel pit, where a 10-ton wheel moves 2,000 gallons of water per minute, and where people report an uneasy feeling and have even been scratched by unseen entities.

You will also have the chance to investigate the machine shop, where visitors report the immense pressure of someone pushing on their chest and machinery fires off on its own; the Wilkinson Mill (1810), where people hear their names called out and report shadow people stalking around. You may even catch a glimpse of the apparition of a former factory worker seen in the windows of the building when they are supposedly empty.

There will also be the chance to investigate the Sylvanus Brown House (1758), which was moved to the Slater Mill property as part of the historic park. The spirit of a little girl has been reported there, giggling and playing tricks on visitors.

Slater Mill has been featured on the Sy Fy Channel’s Ghost Hunters, the Travel Channel’s Most Terrifying Places in America and has been written about in books such as Andrew Lake’s Ghosthunting Southern New England.

Your $99 admission includes:

  • Presentations by: Carl and Keith Johnson; and Jeff Belanger and Tim Weisberg.
  • Question and answer sessions with the speakers.
  • Dinner
  • Hours of ghost hunting in multiple buildings!
  • Plenty of free parking.
