Update: Unfortunately, the Weld Street Inn closed in 2021. It was sold to a new owner on Jan. 31, 2022.
Two weeks ago, I got the chance to do something really cool for my regular-person-job: I stayed overnight in the Marsh-Edwards House at the Weld Street Inn in Dixfield, Maine — a building that is almost 150 years old and reportedly very, very haunted. Not only that, but I got to participate in a full-on paranormal investigation of the house while I was there. It was, in a word, wild. I can’t speak highly enough of owner Ann Marie Cook and her lovely, lovely inn, by the way; it’s a truly spectacular place, and she’s done a wonderful job restoring it. Also, her fresh-baked bagels are delicious — and I say that as a former New Yorker.
And if you want to see how my night there went, read my story on the experience here.
