Colonial Beach Ghosts
These reportedly haunted houses may contain Colonial Beach ghosts and other spooky entities.
The Bell House,
people have allegedly seen the face of Melville Bell
(Alexander Graham Bell's
father), with his white hair and beard, at the windows. Another ghostly visitor is Bertha, who lived in the house for many years. People have supposedly found her hairpins on the floor. Also, a white wispy presence has been seen on the stairs and in the bathroom, according to tenants.
A house on Boundary St. has reports of being haunted. Entities have been seen, voices have been heard, objects would move on their own, entities would peer out of second floor windows, usually at dusk. The house, known as Green Gables, is thought to have stood on the empty lot pictured above.
Another house that may be haunted is one on Irving Ave. which supposedly has a filled-in swimming pool in the front yard because a small child drowned there.
The old Colonial Beach Hotel, which used to stand where the River Edge Inn is now, also has a ghost story associated with it.
The hotel was torn down in 1984.
Gum Bar Point, where the
is located, was nicknamed "Ghost Point" in 1985 when a flood unearthed the remains of men who appeared to have been forced to work on a 17th century fishing boat.
More information about this can be found at the boopatrol.com website. They have conducted an investigation there was well as Westmoreland Shores, Westmoreland Shores Club House, Indian Village Investigation and High Tides Restaurant.
In October, Ghost Tours are sometimes offered in the Great House at the nearby Stratford Hall Plantation. There are also a lot of other great Halloween events in the area.
