Haunted Plymouth Museum Investigated Over TV’s ‘Portals to Hell’


Some of the ghosts of Plymouth, Massachusetts have starring roles in the latest episode of the Travel Channel’s hit paranormal series Portals to Hell.

The episode, which premiered on the Travel Channel and the Discovery+ app on Saturday, features an investigation into the Taylor Trask Museum in Plymouth, which is actually two different buildings: the 1725 Taylor House and the Trask Museum of 1894.

If you have never seen Portals to Hellit stars Jack Osbourne (yes, that Jack Osbourne) and Katrina Weidman, who you probably know from old ghost TV shows like paranormal state and paranormal lock.

Weidman is also no stranger to southeast Massachusetts; she previously investigated the Oliver estate of Middleboro for paranormal lockand participated in the first-ever Middleboro ParaCon in 2018.

The Taylor Trask Museum has never been investigated on television before, and caretaker Jan Williams called Osbourne and Weidman because activity has increased at both buildings since a well at the basement was filled in a few years ago.

Williams, who runs the Dead of Night ghost tours in Plymouth, is a frequent paranormal investigator; however, she says the activity has gotten to the point where she is uncomfortable being alone in either building.

Osbourne and Weidman uncover the long haunted history of the Taylor Trask Museum, with everything from disembodied voices to objects such as a television projected across the room. Although only touched upon briefly, it is also the site of one of Plymouth’s most notorious ghost stories – the story of the haunted pram, a wicker pram said to move on its own.

What is the Portals to Hell duo found during their investigation in Plymouth? Well, let’s just say things get pretty interesting when they decide to leave a senseless Williams in the basement, right next to the filled well that may be the source of unhappy spirits.

Paranormal Activity Reported in Massachusetts’ Bridgewater Triangle

In his 1983 book mysterious america, cryptozoologist Loren Coleman introduced a term he coined in the late 1970s – the Bridgewater Triangle – to describe an area with an abnormal level of paranormal activity and high weirdness in southeastern Massachusetts. Over the years, the concept of the Triangle has expanded to include ghostly reports, UFO sightings, cryptic encounters, alien abductions and more across a wider swath of southern New England.
