Ok, so there’s a historical mansion behind the bel air gates at 414 St. Pierre Road. I first heard of it through an urban legend in high school from a friend who said it was haunted. The story was apparantly the man who lived there set the house on fire (starting in the master bedroom) with his family inside on Christmas eve and fled.
Since then I have gone to the mansion myself and aside from it being beyond beautiful and utterly creepy, the story was somewhat clarified when I discovered antique looking christmas bows and lights along with old photo negatives in a basement closet. Upon doing as much research online I could get my hands on I’ve found that apparantly TV’s Tarzan (Johnny Weismuller) lived there but that the estate was owned by Marion Davies. But I can’t find any information on how or why the house caught fire. My friend and i went there about 2 years back and took a self guided tour through the house. i was taking pictures with a digital camera the whole time….and every picture i took of my friend there was a white orb always placed to the right of his head. there were no mirrors or anything for it to be reflected on which i found odd.
so what i want to know is…..if anyone has been there, or knows ANYTHING about the place. i am interested to know!
