Ghosts Shut Down School?

Full source: Indian Express

    Sultan Shaikh of Kondhwa is not willing to send his children to school. The children say they are scared to even step into the school as they feel it is haunted. Last Monday, almost all students of Lady Haleema Begum Urdu School, Kondhwa, fled after what they claim was supernatural activity in school.

    Five days after the incident, the children are yet to go to school. “If you want to send your children to school then send them, it is not our problem,” this is what the school authorities said according to Shaikh who was bewildered at the claims of the school. Other claims by children include finding random death threats in their notebooks and also seeing an egg-shaped, white ghost on the blackboard.

    The authorities of the school have suspended all classes till Monday as parents said the children were scared and did not want to go to the school.

    Parvika Khan, the teacher who was conducting an Urdu class for Class 5 last Monday, asked a boy to read the text on the blackboard. But the boy said the blackboard was blank, and ran away screaming that he saw an “egg-shaped ghost” coming out of the blackboard.

    It set off panic among students and led to closure of the school for the day.

    “It is a conspiracy. Someone wants to defame the school. They must have prompted the boy. We have lodged a police complaint and have sought an inquiry into the matter,” said Rashid Khan, chairman of the Western Maharashtra Educational Trust, which runs the school.

*Nice way to get out of school...how come I didn't think of this when I was young?

The Legend Of The Lechuza

  Most readers of "Elsewhen" are probably familiar with reports of
the crypto-creature known as the "thunderbird."  Several years
ago, Texas had its own version of this phenomenon, commonly known
as the Big Bird.  Having never encountered the Big Bird myself
(other than the occasional crane or buzzard), I nevertheless stumbled
across an obscure folk legend that may have some relation to the
thunderbird and the Big Bird.  This is the Mexican folk legend
of the lechuza.
   A quick glance in The University of Chicago Spanish-English Dictionary
reveals that the word lechuza is simply Spanish for "owl."  In
the local Mexican dialect of my home area it more specifically
means "screech owl."  However, the folk tale of the lechuza goes
deeper than this.
   According to Francis Edward Abernethy, in The Folklore of Texan
Cultures (1974 Encino Press), "the lechuza is a woman who, having
sold her soul to the devil, becomes a screech owl at night."
The lechuza closely ties in with the bruja, or witch, and is sometimes
considered more--or at least, other--than human.
   As with many folk tales, there are contradicting bits of information.
Again according to Abernethy, "Some say that even in the form
of birds lechuzas retain the faces of hideous women."  This suggests
that the lechuza is of normal size for an owl.  However, Ed Syers,
in Ghost Stories of Texas (1981 Texian Press), says, "She [the
bruja] knows the secret of becoming her own familiar--a self-transformation,
usually to a lechuza, or screech owl. . .Or, if she disdains the
extra step, she may make incredibly long journeys herself,
flying high over the housetops. . ."  This suggests that
the lechuza may retain a larger human-like size, and with the
addition of wings, would make an adequate Big Bird.
   The nature of the lechuza herself (for in the legends it is invariably
female) is of a malignant sort of bogey-woman.  In personal interviews,
the most common tale related to me was that she sits outside
one's door and makes a crying sound, like an infant.  Then, "if
you go outside to see what it is, it gets you."  It also seems,
from personal accounts, that the lechuza is easily recognizable
from a mere screech owl--another clue that it is usually considered
human-sized.  Seeing a screech owl during the day is by some considered
unlucky; seeing the lechuza by night (for she never appears during
daylight) is calamitous, and usually signals the death of a family
member, much like the banshee of Celtic lore.  The lechuza is
thought to possess sorcerous powers, especially those dealing
with darkness, illness, and death.  She is thought to be impervious
to bullets, and perhaps even immortal.  Signs that one has been
visited by the lechuza are scratches on the bedpost, door, or
windowsill that can't be explained.
   The most telling clue that the lechuza is thought to be of a large
size is also told by Abernethy:  "The tellers of lechuza stories
at times point out the likenesses of their tales with. . .the
Harpy of Greek mythology."  This suggests that she must be at
least human- sized, if not larger.
   In any case, if we ever do manage to explain the mysterious thunderbird,
I doubt that it will have anything to do with so malicious a legend
as the lechuza.  Even so, tales of the lechuza are some of the
most violent and disturbing in Texan folklore, and it seems that
among some people, belief in the creature still persists.
The above is the complete article as it was originally.  To it
I might add that, as I said before, tales of the lechuza are often
quite violent.  I have heard several stories of how, when the lechuza's
ruse to get you to come outside doesn't work, she turns instead on
any pets or livestock she might find outside.  Her appearances are
also sometimes accompanied by sudden thunderstorms.

Amherstburg - An Old Farm House

Look into sightings on Texas Road in Amherstburg, Ontario. I lived in Windsor when I was a teenager and all my sisters and brothers and friends and relatives all knew about a haunted farm house. A ghost of a headless lady walked the roadway and a nearby well looking for her head the legend says.

She lost it in a farming accident and no one ever found it. During the summer nights it gets pretty foggy around the river area there and a greenish light with a white figure has been spotted many times.

Everyone knows the legend and everyone has in their lives travelled down that road at midnight to feed their curiosity.

Some say the farmer went crazy and just left the house the way it was. Some say he did it on purpose and through her head down the well.

Brantford and/or Waterford - The Pajor House (it is not clear what the exact address is, but I did find pictures on Google)

This has been submitted by one of our readers...

Please Note: The story has not been confirmed yet by our researchers and this story is directly from the reader who submitted it. Also, we've had a few people correct the spelling to Pajor (from "Pager" as seen in the original story) as the original witness/reporter seems to have gotten the information as to the correct spelling incorrect.

    There is a house in the Brantford area called the Pager house. This house has been boarded up and locked up for a very long time.There are many stories about the house.I have heard stories about it but I don't know for a fact if I have the actual accounts of what went on there.

    The Pager home is a historical home and therefore can not be tampered with, so it stands as it was many years ago. It is a large field stone home, with green shutters. The house has a large field off the back that is used for growing crops, but the house itself remains empty.

    I moved to Brantford 6 years ago and heard stories about the house. here are the stories that I have heard...though it may not be accurate..

    Many years ago the Pager home was a gambling house/brothel. It is claimed that many people lost there lives over bad combination of alcohol, gambling, and ****s in this home. At any rate the house became haunted by some nasty entities.

    It is said that a team of 7 scientists went in to investigate the home, and that some lost there lives in the house due to the entities that now reside there. Over the years the family that owned the house built a new home on property not far from the original house, and kept the original house locked up. They still using the land for there crops.

    A friend told me that in the Waterford museum there is an article on the house but i have never managed to check it out. I asked some of the older folks in the area but they refuse to talk about the house, so i called up the Pagers and asked the next best thing" are you willing to rent out the house?" They said no.

    Last time I drove by the home they were putting a new roof on it ,and a friend told me that the house went up for sale awhile ago.

    So this story may be of interest for someone who is investigating hauntings. Unfortunately I don't know all the facts concerning the home, however i would love to know any new info anyone writes in.

Chatham, Kent-The Baldoon Mystery

The events recorded in this strange Mystery occurred between 1830 and 1840. This all happened within a few kilometers of WALLACEBURG, Ontario.

A young man named Mr. John McDonald had acquired a piece of land which was coveted by other people.  These "others", headed by an old woman, approached John many times with offers to buy the land.  He firmly refused their offers.

And so the mystery of the Baldoon begins:

One day, as some young women of the McDonald family were talking and working in the barn on the farm, they were startled by a sudden fall of a pole from the ceiling.  The incident was attributed to a natural cause and ignored.  Some time later a second pole came crashing down.  They looked around but could find nothing to explain the occurrence.  They went back to their work.  A short while later a third pole crashed down to the floor almost hitting them.  This time, very frightened, they ran out of the barn and straight into the house.

From that time on it was total misery for the McDonald family as strange things started happening on the farm.

The family began to hear strangers marching through their kitchen in the middle of the night.  Unseen persons  threw bullets and stones through windows daily until every window in the house were broken and had to be boarded up.  A man who was visiting the McDonald's witnessed an occurrence.  He was standing in the kitchen and was hit in the chest by a stone.  The visitor picked up the stone and threw it into the river. Minutes later the same stone mysteriously dropped at his feet in the kitchen. Fires would start mysteriously all over the house, even on the roof.

A friend of the McDonald's told them of a woman who was gifted, she had a power of stone reading. They traveled many miles to see this woman.

They told the woman every detail of their story.  She asked if they had seen a strange bird around.  They said yes, they had seen a goose with a black head.  The woman told them to make a bullet out of silver and shoot the bird.  If they wound the bird their enemy would be wounded also.  They went home and did exactly what the woman told them to do.

One morning McDonald took a brisk walk that brought him to the river bank.  He spotted a flock of geese and identified the one with the black head.  He aimed.  He shot!  The bird cried.  McDonald had hit the bird in the wing and broken it.

Leaving the goose with the black head, McDonald walked to the house of the old woman who wanted to buy his land.  She was sitting on her front porch in her rocking chair with a broken arm!

From the time that the bird was shot and the old woman was wounded, no spiritual manifestations were ever heard of at the McDonald farm and peace again fell on the Baldoon.

Anyway, that's just a few but go to this link for a full list and remember to always exercise caution whenever going on these "outings" and avoid the private residence hauntings -- you don't want to be charged with trespassing.  :)

Australian Alien Makes Another Video Appearance?

You may recall a strange story of a witness who videotaped an alien entity in his back yard while videotaping his cat.  And now a third video has come from this witness reportedly showing an extraterrestrial standing in his backyard.  But with this latest video coming from nowhere, many are curious if this is actually the genuine article or if the third time is proving less than charming.

The video, which contains harsh language takes place in a young man's back yard after he wakes up and steps outside.  Calling out, "Hello?" into the darkness behind his house, he suddenly caught sight of a large headed being staring out at him from the darkness.  Exclaiming expletives the whole way, the gentleman then attempts to focus in on the creature and you can clearly see an unusually large head beholding two massive black eyes.  The creature then stands there moving, but doesn't raise its arms or anything particularly animate.

The witness eventually leaves and the video ends.  Now is this genuine proof of a close encounter of the third kind?  Consider that several videos have been posted of this creature in this particular back yard.  And while it may seem compelling and dramatic evidence to some, others are saying as more of the footage comes out that it leaves much to be desired.

On previous encounters the witness claimed to have been physically attacked by an alien, showing a nasty looking bruise.  And then before that he showed two videos which we reported on.  So the question many skeptics are asking is, after so many opportunities to film the creature, why is the best evidence still a blurry blob in the background?  The first video from this incident is probably the most recognizable as a typical grey, particularly with its shining eyes that appear to reflect back light.

So is this Australian witness taking us for a ride?  Let's consider the situation from the potential visitor's perspective.  If there is clearly an agenda to keep the alien presence on Earth secret, what would the creature stand to gain if it were to repeatedly appear in this witness' back yard?  And why would it stay in one place over time?  Is this more likely than the videos being made as a good-natured joke?

Of course there is also reason many people are giving to take a second look at this video.  The witness does seem genuinely agitated, according to some.  And the alien creature itself, while still blurry, has never been shown to conclusively be a fake.  In fact, the closer many look into the images themselves, the more evidence they find that they may be looking at an actual three dimensional object operating in third time.  In other words, it's not CG.  But hoaxes were around long before the advent of computer graphics.  So is this a model of an alien or some sort of elaborate costume?  You be the judge.

Hinterkaifeck Murders -- Unsolved, creepy murder mystery

Hinterkaifeck, a small farmstead, was the scene of one of the most puzzling crimes in German history. On the evening of the 31st of March 1922, the six inhabitants of the farm were killed with a pickaxe, and the murder is still unsolved.

The six victims were: the farmer Andreas Gruber (63) and his wife Cäzilia (72); their widowed daughter Viktoria Gabriel (35) and her two children Cäzilia (7) and Josef (2); as well as the maid Maria Baumgartner. The two-year-old Josef was rumoured to be the son of Viktoria and her father Andreas: it was common knowledge that they had an incestuous relationship.

A few days prior to the crime, farmer Andreas Gruber told neighbors about discovering footprints in the snow leading from the edge of the forest to the farm; however, there were none leading back. He also talked about hearing footsteps in the attic and finding an unfamiliar newspaper on the farm. Furthermore, the house keys went missing several days before the murders, but none of this was reported to the police.

Six months earlier, the previous maid had left the farm, claiming that it was haunted; the new maid, Maria Baumgartner, arrived on the farm on 31 March, only a few hours before her death.

Exactly what happened on that Friday evening cannot be said for certain. It is believed that the older couple, as well as their daughter Viktoria and her daughter Cäzilia, were somehow all lured into the barn one by one where they were brutally slaughtered. The perpetrator(s) then went into the house where they killed two-year-old Josef who was sleeping in his cot in his mother’s bedroom, as well as the maid, Maria Baumgartner, in her bed-chamber.

On the following Tuesday, the 4th of April, some neighbors went to the farmstead because none of the inhabitants had been seen for several days, which was rather unusual. The postman had noticed that the mail from the previous Saturday was still where he had left it. Furthermore, young Cäzilia had not turned up for school on Monday, nor had she been there on Saturday.

Inspector Georg Reingruber and his colleagues from the Munich Police Department made immense efforts investigating the killings. More than 100 suspects have been questioned through the years, but to no avail. The most recent questioning took place in 1986, but even that was fruitless. In 2007 the students of the Polizeifachhochschule (Police Academy) in Fürstenfeldbruck got the task to investigate the case once more with modern techniques of criminal investigation. Their final report is kept secret.

The police first suspected the motive to be robbery, and interrogated several inhabitants from the surrounding villages, as well as traveling craftsmen and vagrants. The robbery theory was, however, abandoned when a large amount of money was found in the house. It is believed that the perpetrator(s) remained at the farm for several days – someone had fed the cattle, and eaten food in the kitchen: the neighbors had also seen smoke from the chimney during the weekend – and anyone looking for money would have found it.

Even the death of Karl Gabriel, Viktoria’s husband who had been reported killed in the French trenches in 1914, was called into question. His body had never been found.

The following day, on the 5th of April, court physician Dr. Johann Baptist Aumüller performed the autopsies in the barn. It was established that a pickaxe was the most likely murder weapon. The corpses were beheaded, and the skulls sent to Munich, where clairvoyants examined them without result. The autopsy also showed that the younger Cäzilia had been alive for several hours after the assault. Lying in the straw, next to the bodies of her grandparents and her mother, she had torn her hair out in tufts.

he six victims are buried in Waidhofen, where there is a memorial in the graveyard. The skulls were never returned from Munich, after being lost during the chaos of WWII. Close to where the farm was located, there is now a shrine. The farm was demolished the following year, in 1923. It is said that during the demolition, the murder weapon, a pickaxe, was found under the floorboards of the attic.

Mad Gasser Of Mattoon

On September 2, 1944, as the Second World War was in progress in Europe and the Pacific, some strange happenings were reported in the small town of Mattoon, Illinois. The front page of the town’s newspaper described a mysterious attack by an “Anesthetic Prowler” the previous evening. A young housewife named Aline Kearney had been laying in bed reading the newspaper when she noticed a strong, sweet odor seeping into the room. The smell made her and her three-year-old daughter feel ill, but when Aline tried to get out of bed, she found that she couldn’t move her legs.

Aline’s sister was staying at the house, and upon learning of the strange odor and its ill effects, she dashed to a neighbor’s house to have them contact the police. When the police investigated they found nothing out of the ordinary, but when Aline’s husband arrived at home at 12:30am from his job as a cab-driver, he discovered a prowler outside the bedroom window. He gave chase, yet the unknown lurker escaped. When the police were summoned back, they again found nothing. Real or imaginary, the dark figure would soon come to be known as the Mad Gasser of Mattoon, and this ambiguous individual would be blamed for dozens of such attacks in the following weeks.

Such is how the story was told in the Daily Journal-Gazette the following day, under the headline “‘Anesthetic Prowler’ on Loose.” The subheading ominously declared, “Mrs. Kearney and Daughter First Victims.” In using the term “first,” it seems that either the Gazette reporters had an uncanny predictive ability, or they had a flair for the dramatic. In the days following the news report, three other citizens came forward claiming that they had been the victims of “gassings” before the event at the Kearney house. People spoke of lightheadedness, paralysis, upset stomach, and vomiting, accompanied by a sickly-sweet odor.

A few days later on September 5, Mrs. Carl Cordes reported finding a small wet cloth on her porch, and when she picked it up she was overcome by an odor. “It was a feeling of paralysis,” she reported, “My husband had to help me into the house and soon my lips were swollen and the roof of my mouth and my throat burned. I began to spit blood and my husband called a physician. It was more than two hours before I began to feel normal again.”

Other newspapers quickly picked up the story, and soon the entire country was reading about Mattoon’s rumored mad gasser. For months, U.S. newspapers had been warning Americans that the Nazis might employ poison gas in attacks against civilians, so this sort of story sold a lot of newspapers to jittery citizens.

Reports of “gassings” continued, and increased daily. On September 8, the Gazette published an editorial criticizing police for not taking Aline Kearney’s report seriously. Shortly thereafter, ten Illinois state police officers were assigned to the case, as well as two agents from the FBI.

Before long, police began to receive reports of several attacks each night. Many victims reported a tall figure dressed in black fleeing from their property immediately after the attacks, as well as blue vapors and buzzing sounds. The Gazette continued its coverage as people throughout the country read of the events unfolding in Mattoon. Soon, large groups of armed citizens were roaming the town at night, following any police cars that were speeding off to investigate another attack. Police officers were ordered to start arresting the chasers, and tensions mounted.

On September 13th, eight days and three dozen victims later, the reports of attacks abruptly halted. Investigators were at a complete loss for an explanation. Careful searches found no chemical evidence of harmful gasses, and all of the victims were completely free of any lingering symptoms.

The only suspect ever investigated in the attacks was a man named Farley Llewellyn. He was a student of chemistry, and he was bitter because he had been ostracized by the community as a suspected homosexual. He seemed a compelling suspect because he had the means and the motive, and most of the alleged attacks occurred near his home. But even after he was placed under constant surveillance, the reports of the attacks had continued.

To this day, it is unclear who was responsible for the attacks, if anyone. Some have postulated that pollutants from nearby factories and industrial plants may have been the cause, but each report was so localized as to cast that possibility into doubt. The official investigation ultimately dismissed the Mad Gasser as an artifact of mass hysteria fed by the newspapers, which is certainly not outside the realm of possibility. It wouldn’t be the first nor the last time that human imagination and embellishment conjured a threat from nothing.

Mysterious Creature Spotted In Uk Port (GOOGLE EARTH IMAGE)

A mysterious object has been spotted in waters near Liverpool in England's northwest, sparking speculation it could be a shark.

The object, seen at the Albert dock in Merseyside, has raised questions about the effect England's freezing waters are having on marine biology.

Some experts have said it could be a basking shark while others have said it could simply be a jetski.

Marine biologist Tom Cornell said basking sharks were known to cruise around the coast and that they weren't a threat to humans.

"Although it is unusual for tropical island sharks to be found in this area, it’s not unheard of," Mr Cornell said.

Radio DJ Simon Hoban spotted the creature while viewing an aerial shot of the maritime tourist spot on Google Earth.

The image appears to show some sort of sea creature with a curved body, pointed snout and pectoral fins on either side of its body.

The Daily Mail reported that the creature was larger than some of the boats which are lined up beside it.

Mr Cornwell suggested the animal may be lost.

"Perhaps it was an old shark which was looking for a place to die," he said.

Ghostly Skull In Concord

Ghost hunting becomes routine after years of research in eerie cemeteries. It takes a lot to startle us, but this tall, strange headstone did. And, every time we've visited it since then, we've felt that something isn't right about that grave.

The skull is surrounded by a banner that says, "All must submit to the King of Terrors."

When I took this picture, I was stunned by the emotional impact of the energy around the stone.

But, when we studied the picture, we didn't see any orbs, streaks of light, ecto, or other anomalies. So, I filed the picture among the hundreds that I plan to use for illustration. (When I'm not ghost hunting or writing about ghosts, I'm a professional artist.)

Later, I was using this photo for digital art. Suddenly when I enlarged the image, the skull's eyes became obvious to me.

At the left, you can see the skull exactly as it was photographed. On the right, I've increased the contrast around the eyes, to make them more obvious.

I applied no art or linework to this image.

To the naked eye and in the cemetery, the eyes are not visible. Like many anomalies in haunted settings, these eyes are only visible in photographs.

How to take your own photo of these eyes:

From Route 128/95, take the Route 2 exit, driving west towards Lincoln.

When Route 2 turns sharply left, don't follow it. Keep going straight into the middle of Concord.

At the rotary (Concord's haunted Colonial Inn will be straight ahead of you), the cemetery is at your right. There is a private home on the east side of the cemetery, and a smaller, more empty grave area at the street level.

Hike up the hill, and the headstone will be towards the crest of the hill, and on the west side. The image faces the rotary.

Sometimes, the eyes are clearly visible. On other visits, we've left with nothing interesting in our photos. I'd guess that we've had about 30% success capturing pictures of the eyes that watch from within that skull.

This the the top portion of this large, eerie gravestone:

Lynn - Lynn Woods State Park: Dungeon Rock

This was the scene of intense publicity and spiritualist activity in the 19th century, when site owner Hiram Marble claimed that 17th-century pirate Thomas Veal contacted him with directions to a pirate treasure buried in Dungeon Rock.

The tunnel at Dungeon Rock has been sealed with an iron door which is usually open. Take a strong flashlight, and wear shoes with rubber soles; the cave/tunnel floor is often water-covered and slimy. Park near the Rose Garden entrance to Lynn Woods, for the shortest walk to Dungeon Rock.

Lights and apparitions, and an eerie atmosphere are still reported in this vicinity. The Marble family is buried nearby, having never found the treasure; they lost their own fortune in the process.

Danvers State Hospital (might be mostly torn down, but the tunnels still exist)

This may be one of the "haunted mental hospitals" featured on the Fox Channel broadcast. The hospital was closed in 1990, after many years as a sanitorium and then a sanitarium, possibly for the criminally insane. (More likely Fox location is Waltham's Metropolitan State Hospital, see below.)

The Danvers hospital has been described as "haunted" since the early 1960's anyway.

Danvers has a colorful history. In Colonial times, Danvers was called Salem Village, and it's where most of the murdered "Salem Witches" lived in 1692, not today's town of Salem.

Lasts reports (starting 2/01) tell us that the property is actively patrolled by the police, and posted against trespassing. We'll repeat our standard warning, NEVER trespass on private and/or posted property unless you're prepared to be arrested.  The only thing left of the asylum is the cemeteries, some tunnels which are blocked off, and the brick shell of the administration and the D and G wings.

To get to Danvers State Hospital area: The hospital is on top of a hill overlooking Rte. 1, and it can be seen from Rte. 128. The closest intersection is Rtes. 1 & 62 (Maple St.) and the buildings are old and brick. Don't confuse them with the newer nearby condos and golf course.

Little People's Village

In the sleepy town of Middlebury in New Haven County, securely tucked away within a triangle of forest between Routes 84, 63 and Middlebury Road, are the ruins of a small, odd house.  What is more odd, however, are the remnants of even smaller houses . . . a "little people's village".

The Legend
Stories abound regarding the Little People's Village of Middlebury, including how a man and his wife resided here while he built this Lilliputian town dedicated to his wife and her obsession with being Queen of the Little People.  From Shadowlands, we have the following description:
     "Located in the woods, on the side of an abandoned road (possibly old Waterbury Road), is a village of sorts, a number of very complex and detailed small stone houses standing about three to five feet high built into the hill.  Some of the buildings are A framed, others are more traditional, they have the appearance that they are gutted and 'condemned', inside of the little houses are elaborate room structures, staircases; pathways lead up hills through the woods to them, tiny pathways.  The area is overgrown.  Built into the side of a rock is a 'thrown' [sic] a life sized chair of sorts with several symbols around it - the legend is that if you sit on it you will die in 7 years - this is only legend though.  Next to the village itself is the ruins of an old stone house with iron bars on the window...very negative energy comes from here.  In the evening the road to the village is so loaded with negative energy that it is virtually impossible to travel it...it is soundless and still.  En route to the village and at the village itself several pentagrams can be seen from time to time on the ground.  Overall a very eerie, very negative feeling pervades the area of this extremely mysterious village in the woods."

The Shadowlands update following this paragraph reads:
     "November 2003 Update:  It is actually right off I84 exit 17 on the Middlebury/Waterbury line.  All the other info is pretty accurate, there is really only one little house left and that is partly destroyed.  The stone house is still there and so is the thrown [sic].  There is also a cellar that you can go down into.  Place is very spooky.  Legend is that there was a man and women [sic] who lived there and she was crazy and thought she was the Queen of the little people.  She made her husband build her a thrown [sic] and all the little houses.  Then she killed her husband and herself or he killed her and himself.  There are different variations of the story."

Norwich State Hospital

Opening in 1904, Norwich State Hospital expanded over 100 acres, catering to ninety-five patients. As the years progressed, the number of patients in this asylum grew calling for building expansions; an administration building, three patient buildings, three cottages for physicians, a carpenter and maintenance shop, a main kitchen, garage, laboratory, staff house, an employees’ club house and the inebriate farm and the Colony had been established by 1913. The need for space continued to grow with the additions of fifteen new buildings. By 1930, patient numbers reached to over 2,000. Tubercular patients were housed between 1931 and 1939 in one patient building called Seymour which led to the closure of the “Pines” buildings. More additions were built. However, during World War II, the nursing staff dwindled. While new buildings were being constructed, old ones met their demise. It's population peaked in 1950 at 3,000 and was considered a working town.

The hospital was used for housing and treating not only the mentally insane, but also geriatric patients and those chemically dependent. Treatments ranged from heavy medication and lobotomies to mechanical restraints and "hydrotherapy". The hospital officially closed in 1996. Today, a large number of gothic-style architectural brick buildings snakes around nine hundred acres of Connecticut woods, most connected by underground tunnels that also house rooms along their paths. Norwich State Hospital's fate is unsure as there have been talks of amusement parks or museums. However, none disrupt the stories of its haunted status.

Security guards patrolling the property have reported beeping sounds in the rooms where lobotomies were performed. The sounds of voices, talking, mumbling and screaming have been heard, when no one could be found. In one particular room, the sounds of a woman sobbing have been heard. Even on the warmest summer evenings, some rooms are plagued with a deep cold. The persistence of these stories led to a local fraternity holding their pledge initiations on the hospital grounds. Norwich State Hospital is believed to be one of the United States most paranormal active sights.

Moses Y Beach Elementary School

At the very crest of a hill on North Main Street in Wallingford sits the deceivingly unassuming Moses Y. Beach Elementary School.  The claims of hauntings that flow from this very old site are almost too many to list.  Suffice it to say that the site appears to be a prime location of poltergeist activity, replete with blaring music, lights, fans and computers being turned on and off, doors and drawers opening and closing, as well as book carts from the library rolling down hallways and the sounds of footsteps late at night.  There is possibly even a history of full-body apparitions at the school as well as voices inside locked rooms or on the other ends of inactive telephones.

Moses Yale Beach was an exceptionally gifted man.  He was an inventive genius, cabinetmaker and a successful newspaper man who gave back freely to his community.  In a letter to the township in 1868, he wrote:
     "I offer this lot through you to the Central School
      District, as a gift, stipulating that it shall ever here-
      after be used for educational purposes only."
Upon this site in 1870, the first school was built.  The Wallingford High School was a multi-story structure which appeared to be able to easily house two to three hundred students and staff.  According to some sources, the first tragedy to occur at the school was when a young student fell through the roof and was killed due to his injuries.  Later, in 1878, a freak tornado ripped through the region and, being that the school was situated on higher ground than most other buildings in the area, the school was reduced to rubble.  According to some sources (those that have not been verified) this storm occurred on prom night in 1878.
The school was rebuilt and renamed North Main Street Elementary School.  During emergency measures in the aftermath of a subsequent unspecified disaster, the auditorium of this newer school was actually utilized as a makeshift morgue (this story has actually been verified by newspaper articles at the time).
In 1941, North Main Street Elementary School was torn down to make way for the present-day Moses Y. Beach Elementary School.  Despite the new construction, it appears that the significance of the site's past has come to haunt its present-day incarnation.
In addition to the varied poltergeist activity is the reported incident of neighbors calling the police in the late evening complaining of loud music and lights coming from the auditorium.  When the police arrived and entered the school, they approached the doors to the auditorium (which are situated directly opposite the front doors of the school as you walk in) seeing the lights beneath the doors, shadows flitting by, and hearing both the music and the voices.  When they opened the doors, the lights went out suddenly and the music abruptly ceased.  It is for this reason that the police department no longer sends only one officer over to the school at night when someone complains of music or lights.  Additionally, the alarm company which maintains the security system refuses to dispatch a lone agent to the premises when a respondent is necessary (both of the above statements have been independently verified by informant sources).
