Resting in Pieces
Extremely Haunted Schoolhouse…GHOSTS OF GOLDFIELD
“The Little Boy On The Stairs”
Back in the early days of our investigations we were invited to come and spend the night in a a home that was said to be riddled with Paranormal Activity. One of the more intense sightings was that of a young, short haired boy that at the time of the investigation we knew nothing about. We were simply handed the keys and told to have fun. I remember that night so well. As I walked the halls and traveled up and down the stairs there was always a sense of curiosity present. As if someone just out of sight was keeping tabs on you as you went about the night. At times I remember catching glimpses of a fleeting figure rounding corners ahead of of us and keeping just out of sight. The night was active right from the start.
At one point in the night we were all sitting in the living room and I looked up into the family room by the stairs and there, peeking at me from around the doorway was a young boy with short, dark hair smiling at me with the most trickster smile. I used my hand and waved at the boy to come closer to the table where out EMF meters were and in a blink he was right there almost nose to nose with me across the table and the EMF meters went insane.
Of course the rest of the team didnt physically see the boy, that has always been my cup of tea but they all witness the effects of his powerful manifestation. After a few seconds he giggled and was gone as fast as he came. We were able to catch the giggle on our voice recorders and documented some other amazing evidence. We havent been back to this location since that night due to new ownership but it is a night I will always remember.
Hobart’s convict history and grand old buildings make for
ripper spooky stories, so it is not surprising ghost tours have popped up
around Hobart’s Battery Point, the Hobart penitentiary, Willow Court Asylum and
nearby Port Arthur Historic Site.
An anonymous questioner asked Curious Hobart about the
city’s most famous ghost stories and haunted houses.
The owner of Ghost Tours of Hobart and Battery Point,
Jacques Imbriotis, is convinced Hobart is one of the most haunted places in
“We have a lot of old buildings that are almost as
they were when that person moved on,” he said.
“They’re the boards that they walked when they were
living and they continue to do that when they’re dead.”
So where are the sites of Hobart’s most famous ghost
