History

Four buildings are located at the Oshawa Museum, The Guy House, Henry House, Robinson House and the Dive Shed. The two main buildings are primarily where paranormal activity is reported.

The Henry house was home to Thomas Henry and his wife Lorenza. They moved into the house in 1850. Henry was one of the first Christian Ministers and was also a farmer. Henry reportedly died in the house in 1879 and his funeral was also conducted there as well. Lorenza died at their daughters house. The house stayed in the family until 1920 when Samuel and George McLaughlin purchased the property and then sold it to the town for one dollar.

The Robinson house was built in the early 1850's by John Robinson. Not much is known of the history of this building, except it is reported that someone died in the front room of the house.



Reported Activity

In the Henry House, Thomas Henry's original chair sits in the study. Here they have seen his apparition sitting in the chair. This room also tends to make people feel uneasy and a few have even refused to enter the room. In the parlor, a hair wreath is hanging on the wall. Once, someone asked if the wreath had ever fallen, and immediately following, it fell. Upstairs in what used to be the Henry children rooms, an apparition has been seen of a little girl dressed in a tartan dress. When a medium toured the rooms upstairs, she reportedly smelt baby vomit and heard a child's voice. Cold spots on the upper floor is also very common.

In the Robinson House, it has been reported that lights have been turned on when no one is in the building. Also on one occasion, a little girl in a touring Brownie group became very uneasy and felt sick when she entered the building.



Areas of Interest

The main areas of interest are the two main buildings (Henry House, Robinson House). The main floor and attic of the Henry House. Front room and second floor of the Robinson House.



Investigation Report

1) Introduction

When the team arrived on location, a detailed walkthrough was given by the museum coordinator that included paranormal accounts as well as the history of the buildings. After completion, the team set up the DVR system focusing on the Henry House. While this was being done, Kt took note of baseline readings. EVP sessions were then conducted in the upstairs bedroom, Thomas Henry's study, back bedroom and the basement in the Henry house. As well, EVP sessions were conducted in the Robinson House focusing on the front room, 2nd floor, and the upstairs where many artifacts are stored.

2) Personal Experiences

At the top of the first flight of stairs in the Robinson house, both Brad and Rob felt a tightness in their chest.

3) Evidence Collected

No evidence was collected.


* 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.
