We dug into #thexfiles, to bring you a local investigation we conducted on May 27, 2000.
Churchill Mansion overlooks Darlings Lake in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. Built in 1889 by Aaron Flint Churchill from Savannah, Georgia, guests have reported the sound of loud footsteps, sporadic changes in temperature, sudden difficulty breathing, and the feeling of cold hands grasping onto them.
Synchronicities have been reported. Aaron’s wife’s name was Lois which was the name of the Inn’s assistant. A picture of a girl named Lottie Haines hangs in the Mansion while Lottie was also the name of Aaron’s niece. A German man stopped by the inn for lunch and the meal of bacon and beans was served which happened to be his favourite. The German man also recognized a particular piece of music playing at the Inn that had just been composed for him before he left Germany.
Anytime Lottie’s picture is moved from the corner wall of the parlour, several customers cancel their rooms.
Several psychics have reported seeing money hidden under the stairs. One psychic mentioned that there were three bodies buried on the property.
Room 4 Snug Harbour belonged to Aaron Churchill’s personal servant. One customer reported that her key dematerialized and she had to get the spare copy from the owner. When she returned to her room later on, the key had materialized on one of the pillows.
An employee woke up in a panic to the feeling that so done was putting pressure on her body as if they were lying down on top of her. She refused to sleep in the room after that.
Investigators made contact with a spirit who identified themselves as “Pam Anch” a mistress of Aaron. The following morning the investigators discovered that the Mansion was called The Anchorage. “Pam” believed the money was hidden under the attic steps near Lottie’s room. The owner had searched the house before for money but has never located anything.
While staying in Aaron Churchill’s room, females report having one of the best sleeps of their lives, while the males suffer from insomnia. During the investigation, the male investigator suffered from insomnia while his wife entered the room and fell asleep almost instantaneously.
