The Sacred Heart Mission was established in 1876 and later became a convent and a school for girls. The initial heritage site was destroyed by fire in 1901, but the mission site was rebuilt. Ruins of many past buildings are still visible today, and so are the spirits that haunted the church buildings and nearby cemetery. People have reported seeing the apparitions of monks and priests walking around the site, and also seeing animals that disappear and make strange noises late at night. A shadowy apparition has been seen in the basement of the mission, and cries, moans and screams have been heard in the vicinity of the church building. In the nearby cemetery, heavy breathing and ghostly voices have been reported, as well as the growling noises of animals when there is no one around. Strange lights have been seen floating around the graveyard late at night and in the early hours of morning.
