In Episode 42 Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger visit the haunted Slater Mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

Children as young as 7-years-old once worked here long hours. Some lost limbs in the machinery, others lost their lives. Today, along with the Wilkinson Mill and the Sylvanus Brown House, this complex is one of Rhode Island’s most active haunts. But do Jeff and Ray have an encounter of their own?
