I got this book for christmas called "Weird New England," a spinoff to the book "Weird USA." Basicly, its discription is "Your Travel Guide to
New England's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets. It is a very entertaining read, and growing up in New England I recognize a few of the places the
book mentions. A few accounts were chilling, including that of "The House of the Faceless."
The passage is this:
"Somewhere on a rutted, nearly impassable back road in rural Monroe, Connecticut, stands what locals call the House of the Faceless People. This
achient, ramshackle farmhouse is surrounded by
swaps and marshland, partially enclosed within a forest of gnarled, bent and bony looking trees. All its windows are boarded up. Since faceless people
have no eyes, they have no need of windows. But there is another dimension to this archtitecual modification: security. The house is fortlike-
impenetrable- as if it were designed to keep something out-or in.
If visted at night- and thats the only time to visit to experience the full effect of the place- the house will appear gray in the moonlight. It will
be entirely dark. To the faceless, interior decorating is as useless as window. But, we're told, on certain occasions a dim kerosene lamp will be
visible through the slats covering the window of one room at the downstairs left corner. This, is said to be the caretaker's room. He's an old man
who oversees the faceless ones. Though he is occasionaly seen working around the yard or chasing away cars that pass too slowly, his faceless charges
remain a mystery.
But there are a few rare inviduals who have chanced to glimpse them. These unfortunate witnesses tell a haunting tale of white domed men, with
streched membrane where their eyes should be, colorless lips, bumps for noses, holes for ears. But their senses seem strangly heightned, for they will
quickly duck out of sight when strangers are nearby, alerted by-who knows?"
This caught my attention because earlier today I was reading about faceless demons.
I know this very well be a campfire story, or a rural legend- but has anyone been to Monroe, Connecticut? Does anyone live in Connectitcut who would
be willing to check this out? It may be a pretty cool thing to check out
