Haunted Vermont: S1: Ep 2 - The Curse of Black Agnes

October 25, 2020

For Halloween this year, we will be releasing our old Haunted Vermont Podcast Episodes right to you. Season One included SIX Episodes as we talked and read about places around Vermont that are considered to be other worldly. Enjoy.

A copper statue located at Green Mount Cemetery in Montpelier, Vermont is that of a male figure, sitting with closed eyes looking upwards, his head covered with a shawl. Like many similar legends, “Black Agnes” supposedly is cursed with the power to some pretty vile things to those who may be tempted to sit on his lap. The list of not so wonderful circumstances include a certain death within seven days and a range of just plain, bad luck.

One thing remains a fact. The statue is bestowed with the title “Thanatos” (Greek for the word “death”). John Erastus Hubbard (1847 – 1899) was a Montpelier businessman with enough wealth to have the statue created and watching over his final resting place.

John Hubbard was a business man in the Montpelier area in the 1800’s. It was said that he contested and inherited a sizable amount of money from a wealthy aunt, (who had originally left the city of Montpelier a virtual fortune). He set about the task of building a public library for Montpelier, but at about 1/3 of the cost his deceased aunt had intended. Needless to say people in the area considered him greedy and mean spirited.

Some of the reported odd occurrences surrounding “Black Agnes” included glowing red eyes at night, blood curdling screams and other creepy noises. Some people believe that the statue was haunted due to the misdeeds and demeanor of Hubbard, while he was still alive. Stories were told about a number of people who dared to sit in the lap of Black Agnes only to be found dead later.

Welcome to the Premiere of HAUNTED VERMONT PODCAST, on this debut Episode we learn the History behind the 19th Century Castle. Which is the ONLY REAL one ever built in the heart of the Green Mountains. A place that is still available for weddings, but within these walls. Could one of the Wilson family members still be lingering around?

In this Episode I talked with the owner of the castle, Denise and volunteers Andy and Sheila.

Also appearing is Steve from South Glens Falls Paranormal Society, and John Dean known for his Terrorealm haunted attractions.

ABOUT THE CASTLE: The Castle has been the home of five generations of the Wilson family. It’s design is a blend of European styles. Part of the estate is presently in the Wilson Foundation, Inc., a non-profit organization, to preserve its longevity.

The facade of the Castle is set with English brick and marble, and is dominated by nineteen open proscenium arches and shadowed by a towering turret, parapet, and balcony.

The residence of the 115 acre estate has three floors spaciously divided into 32 rooms. The interior features are highlighted with 84 stained-glass windows and 13 fireplaces finished with imported tiles and bronze. The Castle’s furnishings include Far Eastern and European antiques and museum pieces, complemented by statuary, Chinese scrolls, and Oriental rugs. The various rooms with their distinctive features provide an elegant and richly gracious interior – perfect for the wedding of your dreams.

On the grounds are cattle barns, stables, the carriage house, and the glass house and plenty of space in the scenic Vermont countryside.

Released January 2018, J.D. Oliva returns to talk about his Halloween Story.

Cody Burk’s family was looking for a fresh start after the death of his father. To simplify things, the family sold the Haunted Hallow, the town’s famous commercial haunted house to a new-comer called Roscoe Slater and his family. Unfortunately, things didn’t get better.

Connor Burk and his group of friends have bullied Cody for the last time. Cody and his friends have built the perfect plan to embarrass his brother in front of the entire town of Hawk Hallow on Halloween. When their plan goes awry, Cody retreats to the one place he knows better than anyone, the Haunted Hallow. But he didn’t count on the new owners being a brood of real monsters.

Can Cody and his friends survive the Slater’s murderous modifications to the haunted house or will they fall to the demonic clan?

If you like Stranger Things, you’ll love this terrifying Halloween tale!
