Heritage Hall


I used to attend L'Heritage high school in Sudbury Ontario, it was a completely normal place. Normal students, normal teachers, normal everything. Until one day, our school closed because we didn't have enough students enrolled in L'Heritage. We ended up closing down. The school basically sat there until elementary school "St Johns" of Garson had to rent out L'Heritage due to some ventilation problems. Me and a few others went into the school to clean it up a bit. We were there all day, until by friends and I had cleaned the whole school. They all left except for me. I stayed to finish up a classroom. Later on I decided to retire for the day. I walked out into the hallway and I heared footsteps behind me. I turned, but no one was there. I began to think that one of my friends had come back to prank me. "Very funny guys" I continued on, then I heard the footsteps again. I began to run until I heard a scream. I stopped, then felt the need to escape like something was pushing me out. I ran out of the school and quickly drove away. I sometimes wonder if any of the St John students have had the same experience that I had.

if it was old there might have been rodents in the school or loose floorboards. As for the scream, it might have been someone nearby or it could have been your head messing with you, because you were alone and the tension could have build up. 😁

it could of been just another person cleaning who you didnt know was there they decided to leave the same time you did and thats the reason for the footsteps 4 the scream that person probably walked on a tac or something....seriously....i think any abandoned place for to long can become inhabited by lost sprites especially schools where they have so much contact with children, who might of passed and look at it as a place where there friends were and had happier times....who knows...but you that would of scared me...later.

The school must've been haunted or something, which is not unusual, but probably a very scary experience. Maybe they have records or something about someone dying in that school and maybe you should try to get the guts, go back and investigate who probably died there. Well, was that experience really scary? did it like literally drive you out, as if it really wanted you out of that place? Well, I'm not saying I could be correct about this, but that's probably another reason they decided to close down the school, because of the haunting. Well, that's all I have to say about this and I also posted up two stories recently, A grandfather's experience and The haunted blue house. Maybe you would like to read them and post comments about what you think about my stories. Well thanx for your time in reading this, I appreciate it much. I also hope you had a Happy new year and take care.
