Welcome to the official website of John Brassard Jr, the Kitchen Table Historian.

   Please make no mistake – I am not a podcast about food. No, I’m going to tell you about  the stories that your grandma didn’t want you to hear.

Every other week, The Kitchen Table Historian serves you tales of true crime, a side of the bizarre, with just a hint of the paranormal. Sometimes terrifying and other times baffling, these stories will always entertain.

When I was growing up, my whole family used to gather around the kitchen table at my grandparent’s house and talk. Sooner or later, we always started telling stories. Just like at that old table, I’m going to tell you tales of true crime, weird history, bizarre events, and even the supernatural.

So pull up a chair. Relax. Make yourself comfortable. Drinks are in fridge, glasses are in the cupboard, and coffee’s on the counter. You’re welcome at my table, friend. I know you’ll find yourself right at home.

  1. The murders in 1919 in Prescott was so sad & I had never heard of it ….story was amazing and you did a good job !
    Thank you .

  2. I’m looking forward to reading your blog! Aaron Gerlach’s mom. Beth

  3. I enjoyed your Beuna Vista story! My dad and his siblings were born in a farm house near there. His birth certificate says place of birth is Beuna Vista. I remember the old store and bridge well.

  4. Interesting! – how can I follow in WordPress? I use the wordpress reader to follow blogs, not email.

  5. Ah, I was trying to find a “FOLLOW” button so I could follow the blog in WordPress Reader, since I don’t use email to keep up with blogs. I couldn’t find anything to click, and also the reader search did not seem to find Kitchen Sink Historian… but then I thought to search for johnbrassardjr – and all is well. That’s me following, now.

  6. I love your story telling. I love the hidden history that we did not learn about in school. Keep up the great work!
