The Gibson house was very different. People talked a lot about a man standing at the window at the front of the house, my aunt who used to live on that same street ( when there was houses there) said that a man would look in their windows at night, he had a big top hat on. My cousins who used to live there remember him! They said that he was very scary looking. I always had the feeling of being watched when I would have to get dressed into my costume in the staff room, which at the time was located in the basement (cellar). And I once I saw a young man sitting on a stool in the corner of the servants room..which was located in the attic.....
Apparently the house had burned down and was rebuilt at some point. I think during the rebellion. I always felt welcome in the front parlour and in the kitchen, but when I went into the cellar or upstairs I always felt unnerved. Also there were cold spots in many different places upstairs but mostly in the parlor..where Mrs Gibson used to sit.
No matter how warm it was ( because it was right next to the fireplace) it was always Cold! Now this was YEARS ago, I must have been 13 or so when I was working there as a volunteer. It would be interesting if someone did an investigation on this house, I'm about 90% positive that you would find something! I'm not sure if they still have volunteers there...If they do, I'm sure some stories would arise.
