French Fort Cove is a Municipal all-season park with activities ranging from snow-shoeing to canoeing and kayaking and a zip line. It is also the location of a rather gruesome tale of hidden treasure and a legendary ghost.
In the mid-18th Century this area was in dispute between the British and the Acadians (French). The French built a fort – hence the name of the park and cove – and wanted the Acadians to settle here to support their claim to the area.
A nun – Sister Marie – asked to be transferred from France to Canada to help the Acadians. Sister Marie was responsible for the fund set up for helping Acadian families dealing with illness, injury or hard times. To keep it safe she buried it.
One night while coming home from visiting an ill colonist Marie ran into some not so pious people who demanded she reveal the location of the buried money. Marie refused and in the disagreement that followed Marie lost her head – literally.
Her body was found and shipped back to France but her head was never found.
Marie is seen to this day by visitors to the park. Usually, she is still without her head – although sometimes she is carrying her head – and she is very clear about her desires though; she wants her head buried with her body.
Many people have followed her apparition hoping she will lead them to her buried treasure but no one has found it yet.
It has the makings of a perfect ghost story to be told around the campfire and many people think it holds about as much truth and campfire stories. However, I spent one very chilly winter afternoon and evening in the deep snow in the bush at the far end of this park.
While I did not see the apparition of a headless nun there’s definitely something or someone there. A disembodied female voice called out to me through the trees but I could never find out exactly where it was coming from. Frequent movements in the corner of my eyes but upon turning to focus there was nothing there. Could have been cold spots as well but I never would have felt them as the temperature was falling as rapidly as the sun.
I was very much not alone in those woods and definitely being watched.
5 Cole Crescent
Status: Residential Building, Urban Legend
We were unable to dig up much history on this building. It is rumoured to have a history of death by suicide, murder and natural causes.
The stories persist of paranormal activity at this location – although most other articles are copies of our original article from the Haunted North America website – but this location definitely has the feeling of folklore and an urban legend.
At different points this building has been used for short term living – possibly a motel – and as condo apartments.
The apparition of young woman – Lily - who killed herself in the building after finding her mother dead after coming home is said to wander the halls and apartments.
Multiple accounts of poltergeist-like activity have been reported.
The apparition of a murderer (possible an axe murderer) is said haunt the basement.
A report that echoes throughout the net states that almost possible sort of paranormal activity is present at this location and that there are possibly 100′s of ghosts.
10 Howard Street
Status: Famous Historical Church
This church, built between 1903 and 1921, is one of the largest churches in Eastern Canada.
The original congregation was Irish Catholics who had just been released from being forced to pay tithe to the Church of England. In Canada – still being part of the British Empire (unlike the USA) – Irish immigrants had even been banned from holding public office.
Until 1938 this cathedral was the seat of the Diocese of Northern New Brunswick – an increasingly French community – when it was moved north to the primarily the French town of Bathurst.
After 1938 it demoted to a pro-cathedral until Pope John Paul II in 1989 elevated it to a minor basilica.
Throughout the cathedral the phantom screams of nun and the disembodied voices of children are heard.
In the basement the apparition of a young girl is seen in a washroom and the phantom sounds of children playing and laughing is reported.
The apparitions of a boy and girl are reported eternally wandering the first floor.
Disembodied are also heard on the staircase to the second floor.
