Ghost stories and more in the latest HAS newsletter

“At Luna Park where it is said that there was once a great mansion, one night while a ball was in progress the slaves revolted and slaughtered the guest at the hall. It is said that from time to time late at night music and laughter can be heard in the area.”

Like ghost stories? They have quite a few drawn from local lore in this edition of the Historical and Archeological Society’s Museum of Antigua and Barbuda newsletter.

“It is believed that at Parham Lodge the spirit of a young maiden who was burnt to death in the cellar, is doomed to walk the road with a lantern until a virgin bride occupies both Parham Lodge and the neighbouring Estate on the same night.”

This is an artist's rendering of the ghost of Parham reprinted in the newsletter from Joy Lawrence's book The Footprints of Parham. Original drawing by Patrick Simpson, 2011. Is there an actual ghost of Parham...who can say for sure?
