title A Real Ghost: The Binstead Haunting Re-Visited
creator MacDonald, Edward
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Tree-shrouded and years-laden, Binstead House sits alone on a gentle swell of land overlooking the Hillsborough River in Marshfield. It is invisible from the highway. Only by following along a long clay lane can you catch glimpses through the leaves of white walls and shuttered windows. When constructed, some 150 years ago, Binstead was deep in the countryside, four dusty miles from Charlottetown. In recent decades, though, the city has been creeping ever closer and now, modern subdivisions inch their way across the fields from St. Peter's Road towards the estate. But they keep their distance still, and the open fields somehow preserve the illusion of isolation.
