Ghosts of the Renaissance City
Did you know Providence’s paranormal activity has inspired no less than three notable writers to create famous works of literature? Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker, and H.P. Lovecraft have all found inspiration for their macabre tales in Providence.
A dark and violent past go hand-in-hand with the historical acclaim enjoyed by Rhode Island’s capital city. Tragic murders, grisly suicides, and unexplained deaths since the city’s inception have marked Providence with a sinister malaise that settles over its historic streets with the finality of a shroud.
