Investigators: Paul and Shane


The history of the Manse dates to 1886. The building became an Ontario Historical Site in 1965 and a National Historic Site in 1997.

In this house author of "Anne of Green Gables" lived for fifteen years, and here wrote eleven of her twenty-two novels, including "Anne of the Island' (1915) and 'Anne's House of Dreams' (1916). Born in 1874 at Clifton, Prince Edward Island, she was educated at Charlottetown and Halifax. From 1898 to 1911, she lived at Cavendish, P.E.I., and there began her career as a novelist. In 1911 she married the Rev. Ewan Macdonald, a Presbyterian minister, and came with him to Leaskdale. They moved in 1926 to Norval, and nine years later to Toronto, where she died in 1942.

Investigation Report

1) Introduction

Upon arrival, We were given a tour of the Church as well as the Manse and baseline readings were taken. EVP sessions were then conducted in all rooms throughout the night.

2) Personal Experiences

Both Shane and Paul felt dramatic temperature drops during the investigation although the MEL Meter indicated that the temperature actually went up one degree. Paul had a feeling of being touched on the arm in the maids room.Shane heard a noise that sounded like bed springs in the maids room. Both Shane and Paul saw what they thought was a dark shadow outside the boys room. During the night the front gate opened, Shane checked it and found it couldn't open on its own and photos were checked to make sure it had been closed before the investigation started.

3) Evidence Collected

Collected EVP's
EVP01 - Handwriring

PHOTO-01 - Black Mass and Mist
PHOTO-02 - Orb and Light Anomalies

* There is a controversy concerning orbs in regards to their authenticity. Although many are believed to be authentic, there are still many showing up as a result of airborne particles (dust) at the time of the flash. This happens in both indoor & outdoor shots. Because of this, it makes it hard to disassociate the false positive orbs from the real ones. We at proo(f) leave the interpretation of the anomalies to you.
