On the October 2022 episode of Crossroads of Rockland History, we turned our attention to the Haunted History of Rockland County. First, host Clare Sheridan read the mysterious story of Lavender, and afterward we revisited a 2014 episode of "Crossroads" featuring an interview with the author, historian, and ghost hunter Linda Zimmermann. Whether it’s the house on LaVeta Place in Nyack; Bosco; Clarkstown's Jane “Naut” Kanniff, and the last witch trial in New York; the Goblin of the Dunderberg, or others, Linda Zimmermann knows them all and shared many with us.
About Linda Zimmermann: Linda Zimmermann, the author of more than twenty books, is a popular speaker and has made numerous appearances on television and radio. Her topics include history and science, and she has been investigating and writing about haunted sites for fifteen years.
