Large rock flung at two hikers visiting Mount Uniacke Lake
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
PROVINCE: Nova Scotia
LOCATION DETAILS: Uniacke Estate Museum Park. Closes at dusk so we weren't supposed to be there.
NEAREST TOWN: Mount Uniacke
NEAREST ROAD: #1 Hwy
OBSERVED: I was out at an old, supposed to be haunted farm house from the 1700's with my best friend at around 11 pm. We are in our early 30's. We were going to the spot by the lake where people have seen a woman ghost. We were about 20 yards from the bench where she's been and a heavy rock flew in front of us into the lake and we heard it hit the rocks under the water. I immediately turned my flashlight on and looked around the field from which it came from but seen nothing. This field is about knee high grass that the rock came from. My friend wasn't a believer of ghosts or anything paranormal but he was in shock and believes something other than a person threw the rock. We left immediately and felt like we were being followed back through the long dark trail. I can't say for sure what it was but its a creepy spot especially at night and its pretty ironic that the rock got thrown exactly where the spotting of ghosts have been. There are reports of Bigfoot in Nova Scotia and the place where this happened in the field is right beside a huge trail system through the woods and on a lake. Not sure if this is a useful story or not thought I'd share though.
OTHER WITNESSES: 1 other witness. We were being quiet trying to get to the haunted spot.
OTHER STORIES: Just ghost stories but nothing physical like the rock.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 11pm. Dark mostly clear night no moonlight. Dry around 12 Celsius
ENVIRONMENT: Long grassy field on lake close to forest lots of hiking trails. On an old historic property where strange things happen. There's a big white house that's 100's of years old, a couple barns and huge pastures.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Robert Barhite:
On August 14, 2016 I spoke with the primary witness regarding the incident at Uniacke Estate Museum Park, which occurred in October 2015. The witness and his best friend entered the park through the back gate after dark, around 11 pm, taking care to not alarm the night guard who was at the museum. The two made their way down to Uniacke Lake and to a location which is reported to be haunted.
They were close to their goal, a park bench, when a heavy rock was flung out of a stand of trees to their right, across a field, and into the lake. The primary witness estimates that the distance from the trees to the lake shore is about 15 meters (50 feet). The trajectory of the rock was from their right to their left, passing directly in front of them. The rock made a very loud splash when it hit the shallow water near the shore, and it was substantial in mass because the two could hear it clank against the rocks which line the bottom.
The two instantly froze in their tracks, and the primary witness immediately turned on his flashlight to see who threw the rock. There wasn’t anybody around them, and from their location they were able to see the guard was still in the museum. They were both shocked, and the primary witness stated that “...this is a very weird spot!” Neither have returned to the location after dark. I found the primary witness to be very credible.
