By Thomas D’Agostino from “Haunted Rhode Island”
Some legends come from a time or place that cannot be traced. In Narragansett, Rhode Island, sits the remains of an old estate that at one time revealed wealth. Some have attributed this next story to that relic but the actual location of this story, if at all true, remains a mystery.
Japheth Wedderburn was a successful merchant who lived in a four-story mansion by the shores of the Narragansett Bay. His only companion, servant Huldy Craddock, cared for the immense home when the captain was away at sea.
