Albany ghost stories

Albany Advertiser

With Halloween approaching, we asked our readers to share their Albany ghost stories.

Here are some of their tales.

We lived in a old house on Hill Street that my Dad owned for around 20 years. My son complained of hearing babies crying and people walking up and down the hallways during the night. Pam Thompson

Brackley Flats Vancouver St. Haunted for sure. Would come home from night shift and my food was eaten, bed was all messed up and once I found a burning joint in fireplace mantle. Shay Wielders

The Forts. Worked up there in my early teens and late 20's and saw plenty of things that couldn't be explained away. The upstairs of the Advertiser building always makes me uncomfortable, as does the Old Gaol. Becca Whyte

Spectrum Theatre at the bottom of the penny post building. My dad was a member and everyone swore the place was haunted. As a kid i loved the creepy atmosphere of it. Em Kumar

Bolganup Farm, Mt Barker...many spooky things there. Rachael Stevo

Bad juju in both the cottage and the women's quarters of the prison. Katy Steed

When i was in primary school and we had music camp at Camp Quaranup there was always stories saying the dorms were haunted - luckiky i never found out the truth. Jenny Duncan

We had our wedding at the Patrick Taylor cottage (which has a ghost that likes to lurk) and our reception at the gaol. Didn't have anything spooky happen to us or any of our family and friends. But we do have a photo of James and I cutting our cake with white blur all around us... I'll let you all decide on what you think it was a ghost. Kahlia Jade Oders
