A Bridgeport newspaper published a story about paranormal activity on Lindley Street, causing a national interest in supernatural occurrences in November 1974. Now, more than 40 years later, the story was brought to the UNH Campus.

On Monday, March 9, Paranormal Investigation Research Organization sponsored William Hall, a Bridgeport native and author. Hall visited the University of New Haven to discuss the events recounted in his book, The World’s Most Haunted House: The True Story of The Bridgeport Poltergeist on Lindley Street.

P.I.R.O. members and students gathered in Moulton Lounge as Hall shared with the audience that he was initially skeptical of any supernatural activity. It wasn’t until he went back and reviewed past articles, audio interviews and city records that his mind was changed.

Once he was convinced that the activity was real, he decided to take the matter into his own hands. Through intense research, Hall was able to use the information he gathered in order to share the story of the Haunting of Lindley Street with audiences around the nation by publishing his book in August 2014. His intention is to dismiss any myths, and add facts to a ghost story he now believes, along with hundreds of others to be true.

“There were over 100 witnesses,” Hall said in regards to the paranormal activity back in 1979, which is what made this specific haunting stand apart from others. “This is one of the most witnessed hauntings in history.”

Although the happenings of Lindley Street are still highly debated, Hall’s book outlines many undisputed facts and events surrounding the circumstances of the 1974 phenomenon.
