PSICAN - Paranormal Studies and Inquiry Canada


When I was a child my family and I moved into a house in Hull, Quebec, which I believe was, and is still, haunted. I don't know if this is relevant or not, but the family that lived there before us had left quite unexpectedly. We don't know why exactly but we do know that the grandfather of the family had died, quite peacefully in his sleep, in one of the back rooms. We lived there for approximately 8 years. The entire family (mom, dad, two sisters, a brother, a grandmother and myself) at one time or another has witnessed either apparitions, loud noises in the night, the sound of a baby crying, odd objects appearing then disappearing, and/or knocking at doors, etc.

Since moving out at age 19, I have had continuous dreams about the house. Sometimes they are very troubling, sometimes bizarre, sometimes abstract, sometimes very plain. I used to dream about the house several times a week but this has decreased over the last couple of years to maybe one dream every 3 to 4 months. It was very disturbing to me at first so I had not mentioned it to anyone except my husband. However, since the frequency had diminished, I felt better about it and mentioned it to my mother a few months ago. As a response she let out a loud ghasp. She then told me about my younger sister who also dreams continuously about the house. She also went on about my brother who apparently was always talking about the house until he felt compelled to stop one day when he saw a "FOR SALE" sign outside the house. He explained to the real estate agent that he had lived in the house and simply needed to see it again.

I have since talked with my sister and have compared dreams and impressions about the house. We both agree that there is something that is attracting us to the house and we would like to know what that is exactly. We have so far found out who the current owner is and will probably attempt to contact him to see if he will agree to a visit. He might think we're a couple of crazy ladies but we'll attempt it anyways.
