Fort Wetherill is one of the most haunted places in Rhode Island and it is said to be haunted by a phantom dog that has been seen since back in the Revolutionary War era. It is said that when the British took control of the Forty in 1776 they were terrorized by a black dog who prowled the entire Fort. In British folklore a black dog is said to be an omen of death so they were understandably unsettled by his appearance. He is still spotted on occasion at Fort Wetherill usually glaring at people before disappearing through a wall. He can also be heard growling, barking and howling on occasion too.
