The square stone house just off the Trans Canada highway, known as the Screaming House, was built in the 1800s for a family. So the local legend goes, one of the children was playing on the railroad tracks and was hit and killed by a train as the helpless mother looked on from the window. The mother was so upset that the father blocked up the window. Now, the ghostly mother is said to relive the event, screaming when a train goes by on the tracks.
