New England is truly a Cabinet of Curiosities, and this indispensable guide directs you to its most bizarre, off the wall, and unsettling exhibits. Some evoke hilarity, some horror. Discover singing sand, glowing tombstones, ghostly squirrels, and a musical instrument said to cause madness. Marvel at the most mysterious manuscript in the world. Visit a miniature replica of the Holy Land or climb carved stone steps leading . . . nowhere. Curious New England points the way to all the tantalizing treats and terrifying treasures that remain tucked away in overlooked museums, private collections, and forgotten recesses of this very special region. *A cursed statue in Maine *Ageless American Megaliths *A window embedded in Vermont earth *Titus s Arch on a New Hampshire hilltop *Artwork made from insect parts With precise directions, hours, and contact information, these fascinating pages reveal each mystery, miracle, and marvel, from world-class weirdness, to minor curiosities, to entertaining distractions. There'll be no more boring Sunday drives when you can visit a spider farm, explore the laboratory of mad scientist Wilhelm Reich, view the Hobo Hotel, and observe houses made from paper, wooden crates, mounds of earth even covered bridges. And New England s wonders never cease: discover evidence of manned flight a century before the Wright Brothers; visible phantoms manifesting from marble columns; and automobiles emerging from tarmac like dinosaurs from pits of tar. This one-of-a-kind collection spotlights all six New England states, illuminating everything that s wicked, weird, and wonderful in every hidden corner of a region that rivals Old England in mysteries, miracles, and marvels."
