The Most Haunted Lakes in the Country Includes One Right Here in Connecticut
According to an article titled 'America's Most Haunted Lakes and Ponds' on the website onetravel.com, one lake in Connecticut fits the bill, and it's not Candlewood Lake. Instead, it's Gardner Lake in Salem, Connecticut.
Gardner Lake is a natural lake lying at the junction of the towns of Salem, Montville, and Bozrah, Connecticut, and named after the Gardner family, who owned a large portion of the surrounding land.
The winter of 1895 was vicious in the eastern section of Connecticut with below zero temperatures, high winds, and 10 inches of ice on rivers and lakes. Thomas Lecount, a grocer in Niantic, wanted to move his summer house from the south shore of Gardner Lake in Salem to the land he owned on the east coast. That turned out to be a bad idea.
