2 Life of a Haunted House. The Barnstable House of Barnstable, Massachusetts. Genealogy of A Real Haunted House
Paul J. Bunnell, FACG, UE
(2003), 2009, 5x8, paper, index, 156 pp, Heritage Books
Serving as a home, an inn and a hotel for almost three hundred years, this house has taken in much of the town of Barnstable's history including its people-some for eternity! Whether or not you believe in ghosts, the documentation and testimonies surrounding the history of this house raise the question: Do spiritual entities really exist? This story comes to life in 1713 and takes you right up to the present day. It covers the history and genealogy of many of the ancient families of the Cape Cod area, including Paine, Howes, Davis, Savage, and Shaw, and documents the owners of the Barnstable house over the years. Several stories of ghostly encounters are recorded here, including firsthand and newspaper accounts. A spooky Halloween treat!
