It’s rare that one location is the subject of ancient curses, claims of Captain Kidd’s buried pirate treasure and ghosts – but Charles Island, off the Milford, CT coastline, is such a place. Adding unique mystery to the island is that, twice each day, low tide reveals a sandbar that allows persons to walk the half-mile from the shore to the island. Did a curse lead to the burning down of the island’s resort? Others have died in the tricky waters around the island. The author of four books on the island, Marissa D’Angelo, shares the island’s many secrets.
