A pirate’s booty

A pirate flag flying from the longtime home of the late Stephen Phillips will usher in Halloween. Phillips, a philanthropist, was also a lover of pirate history. On Halloween, pirates will invade the Phillips House, now owned by Historic New England. Worms, a one-eyed pirate with a dark beard, will lead a crew of buccaneers to sing sea shanties in the red-brick carriage house. Phillips House staff will give candy gold coins and pirate stickers to trick-or-treaters, who numbered about 1,200 last year. But visitors should beware. A pirate’s booty is his treasure, and Worms has been known to snatch a gold coin — or two — from the unsuspecting. “Oh, when he sees someone who looks a little reticent, or nervous, Worms is sure to come out to see them,” said Ken Harris, his close friend, who lives on Chestnut Street.
