The Maritime Paranormal team was invited to investigate this property because of its historical significance and due to the reported experiences of the tenants. Among the reports, residents have heard footsteps, witnessed objects move on their own, and heard a piano play with no one near it.
Even before the opening of the Ainslie Hospital in 1917, and Truro’s first public hospital in 1926, there was the General Hospital that operated from 1908-1910.
“The large new house lately built …has been leased and will be at once fitting up for a General Hospital. The proprietors of this new institution are two young ladies, Miss Rebecca Cameron of Truro and Miss (J.M.) Smith of Oxford, N.S., both of whom are graduates of Taunton Hospital, also of Bellevue Hospital of New York City. To begin with, ten regular, latest pattern hospital beds will be in readiness for patients. An up-to-date operating table, also all necessary surgical supplies, have been bough from New York…” – Excerpt from ‘Historic Colchester – Towns & Countryside’ http://www.nimbus.ca/Historic-Colchester-P5312.aspx

Clip 5 – One of the female investigators comments on feeling a shift of energy, away from the room. There is a voice at the end of the clip that seems to say “that was a test”.
