The Mount had a wonderfully spooky 2014 season and, as promised, here is a recap of recent supernatural encounters.
Starting in September, tour guides began hearing strange sounds, specifically a big bang in the Main House and in the hayloft of the Stable. It may not have seemed out of the ordinary to those unfamiliar with the property, but our guides knew it was not a natural occurrence!
“As a ghost tour guide I try to stay open and aware to the different ways our ghostly occupants choose to communicate,” said guide Marge Cox. “On our last tour, while in Mrs. Wharton’s bedroom, I heard my name called right behind my ear. I turned and asked my fellow guide Travis, ‘Did you call me?’ No, he said. I knew then that it was one of our ghosts acknowledging our presence. “
Other unexplained encounters this season…
One a recent evening, a visitor caught someone peering out of the upstairs window of the Stable.
Another visitor felt her cane shaking under her hand for no apparent reason and she was filled with a very strange sensation.
And another visitor had just arrived at the top of the third floor staircase when she felt something, or someone, pushing her forward.
And last but not least, what we hear the most often from our Mount ghost tours, technical difficulties! Guests reported having trouble with their phones and cameras, being unable to take pictures. Maybe The Mount’s resident spirits are not ready for their close up!
Even though a good number of guests report problems with their cameras, there are a lucky few who have managed to capture a shot or two. Take a look below and decide for yourself, is The Mount haunted?
