In 1699, a well-known pirate named Captain William Kidd visited the island and legend says he hid a portion of his treasure here. Some believe it's beneath a giant boulder called Hog Rock. The Captain supposedly laid a curse on anyone who went looking for it and the island is also said to have been cursed by the Paugussett tribe, who were angry when European settlers took up residence here. Paranormal activity on the island includes disembodied voices, eerie noises and glowing ghosts. The island is now part of Silver Sands State Park, which also features a nature preserve.
