Central Berkshire Ghost Hunters were contacted earlier this year by a resident in Whitinsville MA in Worcester County just off of Purgatory Rd. Stating that her son was seeing 3 different full bodied apparitions including 2 children and 1 adult.


Purgatory Chasm

A unique natural landmark, Purgatory Chasm runs for a quarter of a mile between granite walls rising as high as 70 feet. Popular with picnickers and rock-climbers alike, the Chasm is believed to have its origin in the sudden release of dammed-up glacial melt water near the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 14,000 years ago.

Trails lead to a wide variety of rock formations, with such romantic names as The Corn Crib, The Coffin, The Pulpit, Lovers' Leap and Fat Man's Misery.

Birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution
The Blackstone River Valley illustrates a major revolution in America's past: the Age of Industry. Evidence of the way people lived during this turning point in history can still be seen in the valley's villages, farms, cities and river ways - in a working landscape between Worcester, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. In 1790, American craftsmen built the first machines that successfully used waterpower to spin cotton. America's first factory, Slater Mill was built on the banks of the Blackstone River in Pawtucket, RI. Here, industrial America was born. This revolutionary way of using waterpower and labor spread quickly throughout the valley and New England. It changed nearly everything.

Two hundred years later, the story of the American Industrial Revolution can still be seen and told in the Blackstone River Valley. Thousands of structures and whole landscapes show the radical changes in the way people lived and worked. The way people lived before the advent of industry also can be seen on the land, and opportunities for the future are visible as well. For good or bad, each generation makes choices that change the character of life in the valley. Today, the rural to city landscapes chronicle this ongoing revolution in American history. Native Americans, European colonizers, farmers, craftsmen, industrialists, and continuing waves of immigrants all left the imprint of their work and culture on the land. The farms, hilltop market centers, mill villages, cities, dams, canals, roads, and railroads are physical evidence of tremendous social and economic power. These features show how the force of technology & invention, labor & management, commerce & government, as well as pollution & recovery affect us today.


 Prior to the investigation Lead Investigator Paul Oleskiewicz spoke a few times with  the home owner about what was happening at the residence. She was very concerned about some things her 6 year old son was seeing and hearing. She stated many times that her son saw full bodied apparitions of 2 children and one adult. She said her son was not afraid but did not want to stay in his room alone. The home owner also said that she would hear things from sometimes. I told the home owner that CBGH would attempt to help and do an investigation.




A base reading was taken and it stayed the same throughout the investigation.


600 Plus Photo's were taken with no result.


2 Team members running  recorders with a total of 30 recordings with no result.


The temperature of the apartment was at 71 degrees at the start of the investigation and climbed regularly throughout the night. This is most likely contributed to the amount of people in the house moving around. No unusual fluctuations were recorded.


3 Hours of video was taken with no result.


Checked throughout the night with no result.



At the beginning of the investigation Steph said when she was up stairs on the second floor of the house she felt a heavy pressure in her chest. During the investigation Paul, Hope & James were in the Attic and we all saw a light that looked as though somebody was taking a bunch of photo's on the second floor but there was nobody there. Judy & Steph said they both saw the light that we explained to them on the monitor. When reviewed nothing was found.


At this time it can not be said that CBGH collected any solid evidence of the paranormal in this client's residence but that does not mean there is no activity, it just means that we were unable to get anything that night. A house cleansing was performed by Paul Oleskiewicz and the home owners were told to call anytime if things started to happen again and to also contact Steve Wilson of Spirit Light Network which is a Shawman and that he would be able to do a full cleansing of the home.



The next day Paul contacted that home owner and she said it was quiet last night and in the morning.

3 Days later the home owner called again and stated things are starting to happen again. The Home owner was advised to contact Steve Wilson of Spirit Light Network.  Steve and his crew set a date to do the cleansing for October 27th 2007 and Paul & Judy of CBGH joined them. As Soon as Steve Walked in the door he felt a presence one of which he said was not a very nice one. Things started to happen when Steve and his crew got there. There were cold spots felt in more than one spot in the house and Paul even got a great orb shot that night. Which nobody got the fist time we were there. At the end of the evening Steve and his crew did a Shawman cleansing and since that night the home owner has not called back.
