NEIGHBOURS - 2nd Edition- The story behind the house...

2014/2016 St. Laurent...

The Hardy family moved into this apartment hoping to make it their first home. Working to renovate the place to live in the upstairs apartment and rent out the other place, little did they know that the very house where they hoped their lives would begin, would actually be the place to where they would end.

They say the haunting began the moment Mrs. Hardy became pregnant. Creaking floors and strange noises gave way to slamming doors, whispering voices and eventually full-blown apparitions. Where Mr. Hardy was sceptical about the activity in his home, a pregnant Mrs. Hardy was terrified by a dark presence she felt channelled both the male and female, a presence she felt had the power both to seduce her and to rape her… she feared this dark force was lusting after her child.
When little Gillian was finally born, the hauntings seemed to stop… but their peace would not last. When their daughter turned six the trouble returned. The family reported to have been held captive in their own home; Mrs. Hardy had felt a presence she could not see that had tried to drown her in the tub; Gillian was said to suffer from terrible nightmares and sleep-walking fits. The Hardy family feared the worst. It is said that they did invite a priest into the home to perform a blessing and even a rumoured exorcism, but the strain of the experience must have taken its toll. Days later the entire family was found hung in their own home. We believe that in a moment of desperation, Mr. Hardy, who had been displaying erratic and at times violent behaviour, went after his wife and child and after doing the unthinkable, took his own life. What actually happened on that fateful Hallows Eve, we’ll never know.
