Ellington Ghost Carriage

Ellington Ghost Carriage

If you have ever been to Ellington, New York you would know that the quaint little town, sitting around a well manicured square, harkens back to a time when small towns were everything.  The local restaurant, garage, library and beautiful old houses are monuments to times past.  Everyone knows one another and if they pass each other on the street they stop and shoot the breeze.  It only seems right that a spirit resides there from time to time.  Someone told me once that a gentleman saw a spirit and swore that what he saw was real.  The recollection was vague but what they told me was that passing through the town square, down Main Street and past the gazebo was the apparition of a horse drawn carriage.  Sitting atop the carriage was a man and woman in period dress just as if time did not move on.  Clip clop clip clop they went and summarily faded away back to a time forgotten.  But if ever you should visit Ellington be sure to sit in the middle of town, on the grass or even in the gazebo and wait.  Enjoy the cool summer breeze and just before dusk you may just hear a horse drawn carriage coming down the street.  If you do see it wave and greet the driver if they do not wave back you never know they may not have seen you, or you may just have been witness to history.
