Mandy, The Haunted Doll
Mandy, who now resides at the Quesnel Museum, is a girl you will never forget meeting.
Just to look at her—all you see is a pretty doll that has been around for about ninety years and looks it. When she was first donated to the museum in 1991, she was dirty, ripped and cracked.
There are people out there who say that Mandy has unusual powers. Her donor claims she would wake at night to hear a baby crying in the basement, but when she would go down to look, only an open window with its curtain blowing in the breeze would be found.
Now that she was residing at the museum, staff and volunteers there started experiencing weird and unexplainable events; lunches would disappear from the refrigerator, only to later be found put away in a drawer; footsteps would be heard when there was no one around; various objects in the museum would go missing, either forever—or to be later discovered in some random spot. Most people working at the museum just thought everyone was being a little absentminded.
When Mandy was first displayed in the museum, she did not have a “home” there yet. In the beginning, she sat facing the public entrance, where people would talk about her and the way she looked so cracked, broken and sinister. But eventually she was moved to another part of the museum.
Mandy was placed by herself in another part of the museum, away from other dolls, because she would apparently harm them. Since then, there have been many stories making their way around about Mandy.
One visitor was videotaping Mandy when their camera’s light started going off and on every 5 seconds. As soon as that visitor went to another exhibit, the light on the video camera stayed on. Some visitors claim that they can see Mandy’s eyes follow them around the room, while others say they have seen her eyes blink.
If you think that there is anything paranormal about Mandy, go visit her at the Quesnel Museum, BC or look her story up online.
