Halifax Ghosts: The Windows Keep Turning Black

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

The following report was sent into our website by Ashley on May 6, 2006:

“There happens to be a house on Oxford Street, I’m pretty sure, that is in fact haunted. Story has it that many years ago a mother lived in this house with her two sons who went off to fight in the war. Every day the mother would look out her window waiting for them to come home, but they never came. The sons actually died in the war, however she refused to believe this and continued to constantly gaze out of the windows of the house.

When the lady died, the windows mysteriously turned black and have been ever since. Even if they are replaced, they will soon after turn black, but no one knows why. It is true this house does exist.

The story I just mentioned is the one I have often heard, but I have once heard someone say a person committed suicide a long time ago in it. Those are the two different stories I have heard. It’s really interesting though. I’d recommend taking a look at it if you’re ever in the city. I wish I knew more information regarding the background of this strange house. Then again, I suppose some things are best undisturbed.”
