It's that time of year when everything spooky and scary is being displayed and talked about. I've always heard a lot of ghost stories about the Hudson Valley and it's around Halloween time when everyone shares them.

I recently found out some information about one Poughkeepsie Church and it will surely make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

What's the story behind the Christ Episcopal Church in Poughkeepsie?

According to sources, the church is haunted by the spirit of a former reverend named Peter Cummings who passed away during the 1940's. This is just the start of it...parishioners have also allegedly seen shadow figures and....a woman who appears during church services. People have reportedly heard some strange laughter as well. Yikes.


Other people in the church have also reportedly seen a man's decapitated head floating around the church. I'm not sure what else to say about that one other than that I hope people were just daydreaming.

Where in Poughkeepsie is the Christ Episcopal Church located?

The church is located at 20 Carroll Street in Poughkeepsie.
