Bellevue Mansion, Hamilton
RIP - Sept. 2000
The Bellevue Mansion located at 14 Belvidere Avenue
Hamilton was the first place that I visited back in the spring of 1999. This place was very beautiful yet so haunting
at the same time. This house was most definately haunted. I visited the house very frequently during the summer of '99
and the weather was extremely hot outside yet the entire house was extremly cold, especially the basement (you could
see your breath). This house made a lot of weird nosies and gave off a very negative feeling when you entered it.
The lot is now vacant and abandoned by the City of Hamilton and all that remains on
the property are trees and bushes. I do plan on re-visiting the site very soon to take some pictures of the
lot and see if any spirits still remain there.
Bishop Fuller House, Thorold
RIP - Nov. 2002
If you are driving to the area from the west, from St. Catharines or from the centre
of Thorold, drive through the Thorold Tunnel, then turn left at the traffic light at Davis Road, and drive
down Davis Road until you get to a 1950s house on the right (east) side - the only building on that side of
that part of Davis Road. That is the former home of Bill Davis, who owned the former Bishop Fuller House in its last
days, and for whose family Davis Road was named.
Behind that “new” house is the spot where the
historic Bishop Fuller House was located, marked now only by a mound
of rubble that is all that is left of the old house. My recollection is that the house burned (as
the result of arson) on the night of April 9, 1994. What was left of the house after
the fire was torn down sometime in the weeks after that.

Located at about maybe 200 yards north of the
corner of Old Thoroldstone Road and Davis Street intersection, on Davis Road in
Thorold. Now there is a memorial of this house at Lakeview cemetery in Thorold.
I visited this lot in June of 2003 after it
was torn down and all that remains is an open field of grass and weeds. We took some pictures of the vacant lot
and were quite surprised of what we discovered.
