The labyrinthe-like basement of the Collingwood Arts Center runs beneath the entire building complex, but only part of it is known as the Gerber basement.
The Gerber basement sits beneath the Gerber House, the oldest part of the Arts Center. It is in this basement that many have encountered the most notorious phantom that is said to haunt Collingwood.
This spirit is generally witnessed as being a dark, shadowy figure that floats along the ground, and often chases after those who are unfortunate enough to cross its path.
Many ascribe a negative or malevolent aspect to this entity, but the truth behind who, or what, this spirit is has yet to be determined.
