Blissful Spirits: Mulberry Hill VIC
« on: July 11, 2018, 11:23:01 AM »
They some ghosts are trapped between the living and dead. Unable to pass over because of some torment or  issue preventing them to pass on. Then there is some ghosts that are contented with their lot right where they are. And are prepared not to let the little matter of being dead get in their way.

The following national trust house is so beautiful that its past occupants who spent many years living at house become attached to the house so much yet even in death they became part of the house itself.

In the following pictures below you can see the house below. For those guest who cannot I suggest you join up to this wonderful forum.

Designed by Harold Desbrowe Annear, this magnificent American Colonial style-home was built in 1926 as an extension to a pre-existing 1880s weatherboard cottage.

Sir Daryl Lindsay was Director of the National Gallery of Victoria from 1941 to 1956, and was knighted in 1957 for his services to Australian Art. A member of the famous Lindsay family of artists, he was an accomplished painter and print maker. He also assisted in founding the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) in 1956 and was its first president.

His wife, Lady Joan Lindsay was an artist and writer, best known for her novel, Picnic at Hanging Rock. Her autobiographical novel Time without Clocks is about the Lindsay’s life together at Mulberry Hill and includes commentary about the arts and social history of the time.

The house and its contents, a collection of Australian art, Georgian furniture and glassware and Staffordshire ceramics, was bequeathed to the National Trust by Sir Daryl and Lady Joan Lindsay.

The house today can visited.

Some visitors to the house have felt a presences in rooms? A presence like if they are keeping a watchful eye over visitors as well as giving them a tour.

Curators of the historic house are some times puzzled when items in the house mysteriously move to other parts of house. Even after the house house been totally empty?

Some curators believe its the benign spirits of Sir Daryl and Lady Joan Lindsay keeping a watchful eye over their pride and joy?

Can ghosts be so attached to their homes they just never leave?

I let you be the judge.

One such visitor on a self guided tour towards the end of day. Was gently greeted by a tall gentlemen with receding hairline. Thinking it was another of the curators the visitor turned around to ask a question and man had vanished?

Was it Sir Daryl Lindsay ?
