When planning your "Tricks and Treats" route of buildings and homes near The Edward Gorey House this Halloween, you may want to have Haunted Yarmouth, Ghosts and Legends from the Cape as your guidebook - both for places to visit and for buildings to avoid.
Published in 2008, this volume chronicles strange happenings and sightings in and around Yarmouth, MA. Of course, Edward Gorey's home located at 8 Strawberry Lane is included in the book. Built in 1820, Mr. Gorey purchased the home in 1979 and lived there until his death in 2000. The home is now open as the Edward Gorey House Museum. There have been several unusual incidents at the residence, both while Mr. Gorey was alive and since his passing. Visit the museum and see if you feel a cold chill down your spine in the back room!
