Baldoon Mystery

Virtual Tour of Baldoon Mystery


Forty to fifty years after the original Baldoon settlement was established, the McDonald family began to experience some rather strange happenings at their home on the Baldoon site. These ranged from strange noises in the night, dishes rattling on the table, haystacks bursting into flames, bullets flying through windows and cabbages rolling down chimneys.

It is believed that hundreds of people witnessed the bizarre occurrences, as numerous first-hand accounts of the phenomena remain. The happenings went on for several years and were reported in newspapers as far away as the Eastern Seaboard.
