(WTNH)– It’s almost Halloween and our state may just be the perfect place to celebrate because there are several places in Connecticut known to be very haunted.

Here’s 5 noteworthy places you may want to check out…or avoid:
(Note: Some of these places are illegal to enter so do not actually go inside.)

Dudleytown, Cornwall– This may be known as the most haunted place in Connecticut. The abandoned area has been referred to as cursed, damned, and possessed by demons, even being named “The Village of the Damned” by some. The Dark Forest Entry Association owns the land and keeps visitors out.
