At least three spir­its in Nova Sco­tia mu­seum, say in­ves­ti­ga­tors

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

Dur­ing June there was a pri­vate para­nor­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tion at Ran­dall House Mu­seum in Wolfville.

The evening only served to fas­ci­nate cu­ra­tor Krys­tal Tan­ner af­ter three res­i­dent spir­its, in­clud­ing a child, were heard.

So a sec­ond in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Bruce and Char­lene Simp­son of Care­tak­ers Para­nor­mal In­ves­ti­ga­tions is sched­uled for Sept. 9.

This time a few spots will be open for those mem­bers of the pub­lic who want to wit­ness the event at the over 200-year-old house. Ev­i­dence from the night can be ac­cessed on YouTube: watch?v=kGKh­wftx7aI.

Bruce Simp­son, a Truro res­i­dent, says there are home­own­ers who hear strange noises, foot­steps and things that they can’t ex­plain. He and his wife try to find an­swers.

“What we heard at Ran­dall House was very in­trigu­ing,” he says. “There so much in that home.”

The Simp­sons be­came fas­ci­nated by the para­nor­mal about three years ago. To­day they use var­i­ous means, in­clud­ing dig­i­tal recorders, to hear dif­fer­ent voices.

At Ran­dall House, Simp­son noted, he clearly heard the lit­tle boy spirit say, “I came back.”

The cou­ple use their spare time to travel to her­itage home and lis­ten. They do not charge for their ser­vices.

Ac­cord­ing to Simp­son, many spir­its choose to re­main earth­bound for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons, such as un­fin­ished busi­ness, wait­ing for loved ones, sud­den death, and fear.

Some­times he’s dis­cov­ered they are very anx­ious to speak. On other oc­ca­sions the spirit world stays silent.

Tan­ner notes that staff and vis­i­tors to Ran­dall House have ex­pressed sim­i­lar sen­sa­tions in the house.

Light bulbs dim and cell phones tend to lose power. There have been re­ports, she says, of door­knobs mov­ing with­out peo­ple around and a woman seated at the sewing ma­chine.

While some are highly skep­ti­cal of this phe­nom­e­non, Tan­ner says, others be­lieve im­plic­itly. She feels mostly neu­tral, but was spell­bound dur­ing the June in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Four spots are avail­able for the Sept. 9 in­ves­ti­ga­tion at Ran­dall House. You can email the Wolfville His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety about this fundrais­ing op­por­tu­nity: ran­dall­house@out­look. com.
