This was the site of a series of witch trials in 1612. 10 mysterious murders resulted in the conviction and torture of around a dozen people who still remain here. Dark figures are seen outside; inside, people have reported hearing the sounds of something being dragged. A little girl is also heard crying and is believed to be that of a child whose mother and grandmother were both convicted.
