“Child, you arise and smile to me Out of the night, Out of the sea, The Nereid of a moment there . . . O lost and wrecked, how long ago, Out of the drowning past” ~ Arthur Symons, “Stella Maris”IMG_1825 IMG_1827 IMG_1834

Precious Blood Cemetery, Woonsocket, RI

Back in August of 1955IMG_5209 IMG_1543 IMG_1534 IMG_1535 IMG_1540 IMG_1537 IMG_1547 IMG_1542 IMG_5197 IMG_1541 IMG_1565 IMG_1566 IMG_1555 IMG_1554 IMG_1557 IMG_5200 IMG_5204 IMG_5199 IMG_5195 IMG_5206 In 1955 Woonsocket was hit by two hurricanes, Connie and a week later Diane. The cemetery sits along the Blackstone River and Harris Pond. The overflowing waters washed away a large portion of  the graveyard. More than fifty caskets were washed up and swept away. Pieces of coffins and remains of the deceased littered the area. Neighbors of Woonsocket were finding some crazy stuff for weeks. Needless to say what a mess. The bodies that were found were returned to Precious Blood and once again laid to rest, but not all in the right plots. This makes Precious Blood Cemetery a hot stop for some paranormal folks.
