"Historic" Haverhill Street? Yes, indeed. The street intersects many towns, and was the main route between Boston and Haverhill, Massachusetts back in the day when Paul Revere was excitedly yelling something about the British coming. For all we know, Mr. Revere could have encountered the same fog bank, gone fast-forward a few hundred years, and was referring to The Beatles. Yes, North Reading really is that strange...

Many houses and farms from the Colonial era still silently stand on Haverhill Street, and even without some paranormal trick of time, my eyes had to search for current-day reminders. The pavement surface does change abruptly at the Reading/North Reading demarcation and is very noticeable when driving, just as John had stated. I also noted that a path of high power lines cross over the street at the approximate location where John said he had his experience. I find this interesting, as high power lines have been involved with paranormal experiences in many documented cases. This may be due to the effects of strong electromagnetic fields on the brain or, as some paranormal researchers believe, that the fields supply the energy for such events to occur and manifest.

The sudden appearance of fog, the brief time frame, and the "muffled" hearing sensation John said that he experienced during the incident have been a component of some other documented accounts of slips in time. And one cannot help but wonder what role, if any, the unusual meteorological conditions due to Hurricane Sandy contributed to the event. Last (but, yes, almost certainly least), it was almost Halloween. The town would be the perfect setting for an H.P. Lovecraft story. No, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if his fictional town of Arkham, Massachusetts was inspired by North Reading. After all, it was his neck of the woods. I'm sure Miskatonic University is waiting there for the next unsuspecting traveler, just beyond the fog...

Great site, Mr. Duda! I've always felt something wasn't right on that section of Haverhill Street. I travel it on an almost daily basis, and in the winter when it gets dark earlier I get a weird feeling, but the rest of the street seems ok. You're right, North Reading seems like it hasn't changed for centuries, which I like, but something's weird about the place. Thanks-Eric.

I love this story. It's so bizarre, but something tells me it happened just as he said. I don't believe John made it up or just imagined that it happened to him. There's a sincere feeling about it all. Really unique and interesting!

"John's" story seems very sincere. Sometimes weird things happen to us and we just brush it aside thinking that it's our imagination or we're tired and really don't think about it too much, so it's cool that he did take notice of what was happening. I definitely would like to visit Haverhill St. on my next trip to Mass.

Two weeks ago I was at my job and one of my coworkers asked me to get something in the back for a customer. I went in the back but I couldn't find the stuff I was looking for so I was like let me get my manager David. I could have sworn that I thought I saw him in the back. I called out, "David! David! but he still kept on walking straight to the where the mattresses were at. So I go over there he wasn't there, he disappeared. So I continued to go down further thinking maybe he was over by the little room where we keep all the bags but he wasn't in there either. I finally saw him and asked, "Were you in the back?" and he said "No, I was out here with the customer talking to her". Well, somebody was in the back and he kinda looked like him...I say it was a ghost. He had black pants on but I couldn't see his upper body.
