In 2013 we received a query regarding a ghost story involving Romaines Road in Port au Port East. This is the first we've heard of an urban legend involving the road and we'd like to learn more. The only information we have at this point is that the road is rumoured to be haunted by the spirit of a little girl. The spirit may only be seen from within a car, with or without the headlights on. Phantom footsteps have also been heard in the vicinity the spirit is supposedly haunting.
In November 2015 one of our readers wrote in and shares the following which has been slightly edited for privacy reasons:
I lived on Romaines Road for fourteen years. The house I lived in had no history that would suggest a haunting, however, we routinely heard someone walking upstairs when we were downstairs. If we had company visiting, they would look at us quite puzzled and say "someone is upstairs" we would shrug and say no, there is no one there, even though you could clearly hear someone walking across the floor above.
One evening when I was in the house with my then three year old, we were watching television and out of the corner of my eye I saw a green mist floating up the stairs . I did not want to scare my child so I did not react. My son said "what is that Mommy," I replied "what is what" he said that "green stuff." I passed it off so that he would not be afraid.
As the years passed, we experienced many odd occurrences. When walking along Romaines road there was an area where I got chills when I passed by. Yet, I was never afraid. I knew something was there, but I knew I had nothing to fear. My son on the other hand was terrified of "the presence."
I was quite surprised to see the story of the spirit of a little girl. Various incidents made me think that the spirit was a man, grey hair, neat grey beard and black rimmed glasses. I wish I could be of help. Definitely something to this story though."
