The Haunted Round House Fremantle: WA
« on: May 30, 2019, 11:36:54 PM »
 The Round House was used as a prison in the 1800s for colonial and indigenous prisoners until Fremantle Gaol was opened. It’s a place where a bunch of people were hung, the very first of who was 15-year old John Gavin, the spirit of whom reportedly still haunts the place. And you can’t blame him seeing as he was probably innocent. Gavin was hung for killing the son of the farmer he worked for but the recent theory is that the farmer’s wife was suffering postpartum depression and was more likely the culprit.

Once Fremantle prison took over in 1888  floggings, time in irons, isolation and the hangings of at least 43 men and one woman were all part and parcel. It’s not a happy place. It also saw its fair share of riots and ‘disturbances’ during its years of operation. As well as colonial and indigenous prisoners, it took on military prisoners during the war and as an internment centre.

There are report of many eerie feelings, photos in which orbs have showed up, especially in the church, are pretty common. According to the ABC, it’s something of a test for budding Mediums to wander in different cells and report how they feel. Two separate pairs of women described what happened to them in a cell that used to isolate one of the sexual offenders once imprisoned there.

“Pressure, like it was warm and it surrounded you,” one describes before her friend adds, “it was like a steam cloud condensing in on me.”

And the other pair? “a feeling of cloudiness, and Helen felt like she was being dragged down to the bed.“.

The cell is so seems has that affect on many visitors especially female. Incidentally for all females reading this out of curiosity which cell do you think is the haunted one in the picture of the two cell doorways below?

in the picture below you can see the round house and outside picture looking more like a medieval castle than a prison. For those who cannot see the picture I suggest you sign up to the forum.

The round house seems a place of pain and misery and may indeed be haunted by malignant ghosts.

There has been quite a few stories around the round house over the years. One day I would like to visit the site my self personally. However sadly that depends on my health these days.
