Bruce Mansion

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Bruce Mansion

Bruce Mansion was built in 1876, and is now a costume shop, according to reports. The land on which it rests were the site of many tragedies that may have resulted in its hauntings. Fires, deaths and wartime casualties occurred on the property and after it was built, the mansion changed hands many times. Legend has it that one owner hit someone while driving his car, then in a panic, buried the body on the estate. Later, the owner lost his fortune and hanged himself in the bell tower. Was it coincidence, or did the ghost of his victim have a hand in it? Witnesses say the building is haunted by past owners and has been investigated by paranormalists who found EVPs and other strange occurrences.

I have once visited this location when it was a costume shop, me and my cousin saw a ghost cat running around on the bottom floor, one door which led to a bathroom, the door handle shook by itself, and we had gone all the way up to the attic and looked out the big main window, once we returned to our car in the front, we saw a ghostly figure hanging in the window
