If you go up Penacook Street in Concord, NH, you will find to your right a small road called Via Tranquila. If you drive down to the end of the road, you come to what looks like a red farm-house with an aluminum gate barricading any entrance to the property. This house, the Concordians refer to as Via Tranquila.
The story behind Via Tranquila, was that in the 1800s, it was a schoolhouse. The headmaster of the school lived upstairs, in the attic of the schoolhouse. One day, he became crazed and in all of his rage, shot all the children and then himself with a shotgun. In more recent years, two lawyers were looking at the property as a potential law office. They ended up purchasing Via Tranquila. Then one day, a mad man came to property and murdered both lawyers.
The house have been boarded up and has surveillance cameras guarding the property, but nobody ever appears to live at this mysterious house.
I have been to Via Tranquila many times and it seems like every time I visit, I have more and more experiences with the spirits who inhabit the property. One of the first times I went there, I saw a man peering outside the upstairs window. When I looked again, he was gone. I’ve seen big blue colored orbs right outside of my parked car, my psychic friend told me that it was the children from the school, my car was sitting where they played.
Recently, I went ghost hunting with my friend, Scott. And here are the pictures from that experience.
These are two different shots of the attic window, where the head master supposedly lived. I felt that I needed to take two pictures because the reflection of the street light could possibly create false shapes and images. Even though the second shot is angled so that the least amount of reflective light is seen, there still appears to be something behind the window.
As we were taking pictures, Scott and I heard something in the woods surrounding Via Tranquila. It sounded like footsteps walking towards us through the woods. Terrified, we ran to the car. I always keep my car facing the road, in case I have to, I can make a quick getaway. Scott took pictures behind us while we were running. This is what we came up with.
