Hello,

Well, since i noticed only one story of hauntings in Peterborough I feel that maybe its time to tell the tales of the lesser known hauntings.

One of my stories is of my volunteer time at Hutchison House here in Peterborough. Just as information, Dr. Hutchison was the first doctor in Peterborough and the house was built for his family.

I found out a small piece of information not widely known while working on a research project on the Hutchison family and the house itself. Since Mrs. Hutchison died giving birth to a baby in the house, she (or at least her ghost,) is said to walks the halls of the house at night.

I, personally, have heard a baby cry along with the other volunteers. Even the lady that comes in to run the museum in the very early morning as well as late into the evening have heard the baby on a few separate occasions.

You can also sometimes hear singing coming from upstairs. I got quite used to hearing it and I'm sure it is Mrs. Hutchison's ghost singing to sooth the baby.

There is a painting also on the wall of a woman who owned the house after the Hutchinson's left and the painting scares the heck out of me! You feel its eyes on your back when you are walking up to the top floor and rumour is there has been a couple times where the eyes have been seen moving and the mouth has twisted into grisly, wicked smile.

Do you have another story about this museum? Do you have a tale or report from Peterborough and the surrounding areas to share? Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
