Our country has a very rich history,ans therefore I suppose it is logical to assume that we have great historical sites.
And with historical sites it is only natural that some kind of paranormal activities will occur.
One such a place is the Old as gold guesthouse situated in Germiston,gauteng.
this beautiful house was built in the 19th century,round about 1880.
From the outside this old beautiful house looks quite normal.But it hold some very interesting history.
This old house was built to be used as the house of a Cornish mine manager.The interesting part of this house is the fact that there are three underground rooms,which once upon a time was used to house chinese mine workers.At the time the house was built,there was an actual shortage of African labour.So chinese workers were imported to the Witwatersrand.
In the house there is a secretly concealed staircase that leads to the chambers,which actually more resembles dungeons.It is believed that these chambers were used to hide unregistered workers.Labour smuggling used to be big bussiness in the late 19th and early 20th century.The smugglers(called blackbirders) traded in people like they were slaves.There are also reputed to be three tunnels(now sealed off) that led from the chambers to the closeby gold mines in the area.
It is said that at night,you can still hear the chinese workers down in those chambers.
Now, I would like to get into that house if possible to investigate it a bit ,and to see what we can come up with.
