Haunted house in Fair Haven subject of new book
‘The Eternal Conductor’ explores a local stop on the Underground Railroad
By Brooke Geery
Debbie Garneau Griffin grew up in a haunted house in Fair Haven, and has recently published a book, “The Eternal Conductor,” based upon true-life events (Write Your Way, 2020). From a young age, Griffin knew something supernatural was afoot in her home.
“It was just my mother and me living at the two-story house, but I would often hear footsteps upstairs. So one night I went up to see who else lived with us. That’s when I had my first encounter with the ghost. He told me he was there to protect us from evil.”

. . . Recognizing my enthusiastic interest in reading, writing and books, Foresthill author Debbie Garneau Griffin emailed me, offering a copy of her book, “The Eternal Conductor.” It’s a tale of the Underground Railroad in Vermont, and a deadly spirit that insists on haunting a stop on the railroad into the present day.
This yarn sounds fascinating. If you want to learn more, investigate: theeternalconductor.com. Thank you, Debbie. . .

Local Artist Gets Published
Foresthill resident Debbie Griffin has published her first historical fiction novel.
When Debbie moved her elderly mother to a nursing home from their century-old farmstead in Vermont, they cleaned out the property and discovered it had once been a waystation along the Underground Railroad. Upon retiring, Debbie made several trips to the Northeast, where she researched the Underground Railroad routes. As a result, she was motivated to write this historical fiction novel about the perilous travels of an escaped slave family trying to reach freedom in Canada in 1850.
