About 7 years ago (~2001) , me and some High School friends from Watertown decided to check this place out. Crazy place, the legend goes (or as I was told) : this place was a nunnery that dealt with the care of blind and / or deaf children, supposedly a nun committed suicide by hanging herself from the upper-level, also the building was scorched in a fire and (I think) rebuilt.
Some people witness apparitions of these events, as well as ghosts outside the place, and the chair ‘rocking'. As far as my experience, apposed to hearsay, I saw some illuminating curtain swaying like someone was opening and closing it.
I was determined to not let my attention of the curtain curtail as I approached it, but as soon as I crossed the street the curtain disappeared. I stepped backwards a few paces, and it didn't reappear so I ran to the (broken) window and stepped inside.|
If in fact the curtain was a local's prank, it was well orchestrated as the curtain was quite large and it had to be draped from an unreachable height. This is the only ‘ghost' I have seen there after several visits.
I have seen the purported rocking chair but unfortunately no rocker, so I threw stuff at it and kicked it over (to no effect). The tunnels are creepy…. Man, I want to go back, hope it's still there.
