Unusual Drama At The Hackmatack Playhouse

05.21.2010 · Posted in Ghosts, Hauntings

Investigators agree with the civilians at the Hackmatack Playhouse in Berwick, Maine: It’s haunted.

The theater appears to be haunted by a woman who sings and an angry Native American. Of course, we should expect to hear of some more serious ghostly trouble coming from this site now that the investigators called the spirits harmless.

The playhouse grounds were the site of the “Salmon Falls Massacre” in the 1600s, in which a group of Native Americans burned down a home, killing several ancestors of Michael Guptill, who owns the property. Investigators claim the Native American spirit told them it took part in the massacre. Perhaps this ghost has been around and angry on the site for such a long time due to the overall lack of success of the massacre.

Guptill believes the singing ghost is the spirit of his grandmother.

Reports of paranormal activity on the property include sightings of apparitions and strange feelings. During their April 10, 2010 investigation, the Everything Paranormal of New England crew heard wood chopping noises in the now unused saw mill, as well as voices and animal noises in the old slaughterhouse.

For whatever reason, the ghosts at the theater don’t seem to cause any trouble. The investigators said the spirits, even the angry one, wouldn’t hurt anyone. Of course, we should expect to hear of some more serious ghostly trouble coming from this site now that the investigators called the spirits harmless. At least, that’s how it works in the movies and on tv, and this is a theater . . .
