Officially listed as haunted by the Rhode Island Census, this dilapidated Foster factory gives up its secrets to New England’s resident ghost experts. On May 19, 1822, Peleg Walker was found dead inside Foster’s Ramtail Factory. Almost ten years earlier, he and four other family members had made the fateful decision to start a business. Legend has it that when relations soured over arguments about money, the partnership ended, with Peleg hanging from the very bell rope he rang each morning to signal the change in shift. Whether he took his own life or was murdered remains a mystery. Recognized as a haunted site since 1885, the factory now lies in ruins. Yet Peleg still keeps vigil over its remains, sounding his night watchman’s bell and drifting with his candle lantern in hand. Authors Tom D’Agostino and Arlene Nicholson share over two decades of research into the mysterious history of Rhode Island’s haunted factory. Includes photos! “Over the past twenty-five years, D’Agostino has explored scores of sites and produced several books on his adventures, including Haunted Rhode Island. When snooping for spooks, he and his wife, Arlene, carry a briefcase of high-tech gadgetry to document his findings.” —Rhode Island Monthly
