Bridgeport’s creepy side to be revealed on Nov. 18 walk and talk

BRIDGEPORT — Bridgeport has a creepy side to it, and no one knows that better than author and historian Michael J. Bielawa, who on Sunday, Nov. 18, will visit scenes of suspected hauntings, Victorian-era murders, Men In Black sightings and other unexplained phenomena in the city’s downtown.

Bielawa’s Wicked Bridgeport Walk will focus on the Park City’s macabre and fascinating downtown history. Tales of pirates, gangsters, ghosts, a Victorian Era international manhunt and the unsolved murder of a world-famous sea captain all lurk along the streets and alleys of downtown Bridgeport.

The event is being sponsored by the Barnum Museum and it will take place from 4 to 6 p.m. Follow signs to enter behind the historic building from the plaza; go through the glass doors into the Peoples United Bank Gallery. The Barnum Museum at 820 Main Street.
