Our family stayed at Emerson inn by the sea's classic cottage (next to the hotel) during the Christmas holidays in 2011. My husband and I were upstairs asleep when I woke up to the sound of whistling that seemed to be coming from the closet (like a man beckoning a dog-type-whistle) and sounds of hammering against steel metal and the like mixed with inaudible voices.
I just laid in bed awake eyes wide open and obviously very ''freaked out. '' I got up in the pitch black to check on our kids to make sure they were OK and did finally go back to sleep. The next morning over breakfast I mentioned to hubby that it was not a good night's sleep for me at all.
Without missing a beat and almost talking over each other we both said at the same time ''did you hear that whistling and hammering noise last night? '' unbeknownst to each other at the time we had both been woken up and heard the same thing - even so much as replicating at the same time the type of whistle we both heard.|
Since I am not from the area but my husband is I was unaware that the old Cape Ann Tool Company was nearby. Was this residual energy coming from the plant that was abandoned after being liquidated almost 25 years ago? I don't know what the answer is but there are some things that can't be explained or ''debunked'' and knowing there aren't any other factories in the vicinity that could have produced that kind of noise (much less at 3 am in the morning) I am thinking it could definitely have been.
I have looked online for similar paranormal encounters in that area and haven't found any to date.

Comment by C: Since I was two I spent summers in Rockport and Pigeon Cove. I remember distinctly the sounds you heard when I walked or bicycled past it. Some guys sitting out front with their lunch boxes on break. Proud men they were. I've stayed at Emerson many times, but maybe you just caught a drift from the past in the breeze. I don't doubt it. Best.
