1 woman alone, 1pm in afternoon inside the locked building.

So her task was simple, go in lock the doors behind you. Wipe down the newly refinished floors, and dust the walls and ceilings. Prep for the painting, that is about to start.. So I called, just to hear it's going smoothly...no such luck. She said nothing, till I asked. It always the same from the "skeptical" first timers. They won't volunteer what has spooked them, kinda as if they are still trying to come to terms with it. How did it go? " I could tell she was driving, not working", I knew what was next. Not bad. How far did you get, did you finish? Not really. Why Well, I stayed 1 1/2 hrs., predictable pause What happened? Something started playing music, and walking the upper floor.... W

Thursday January 17,2019 3 people 6pm-8pm Tour for a high school student’s history project The tour began in the basement. I only brought in a few pieces of paranormal equipment expecting to spend an hour on the walk to show historical features of the building for the project. If you have ever visited the hotel you are aware time stands still in this mystical building and we were there for a little over two hours due to the paranormal activity we experienced. We visited the fireplace room first, I had the young lady hold the KII/EMF detector for the tour. The KII meter began to peg up to the second green and third yellow color. We then entered the slave quarters, two maglights were set on th

Trim Carpenter yesterday, called from the Hotel. He was leaving early?

Yesterday we started installing the trim, along the walls now that the floors are done. Then we can start the finish work. The call started with the usual, "how are you", I knew something was not right. These guys don't chit chat.... He said he was alone in the building, he know2s because he turned off the alarm upon entering. Every time he walked past the stairs to the 2nd floor, things made banging noises from the upper floor. He said at first he ignored it, but he stated it was too distracting, and he couldn't focus on his cutting. He asked me to let him know when I'll be there, I said today. I am to the point, it doesn't surprise me , and especially it doesn't phase me. I just people cou

Not seeking to ghost hunt, my father, Nick, resided there for years when I was a kid. Many realizations being an adult, such as wondering “why did that door close?” Walking up the stairs to a very familiar feeling of not walking towards the window at the end of the hall. Things are seen, and heard in the halls. The basement.. well at the time the band was playing all the time, when the music stopped and the sun was up my heart felt pain and I wanted to rejoice with what ever was there.. not hurt or threatened by my acknowledgment. Something is still hiding in the shadows, of the dungeon floor. My dad and I use to sleep in the room that you’d walk in through the front door- the living area- t

Phil has been resting in the Attic, too tired to drive home...

Guided Investigation/Tour

Suggestions from the Guides!

     When we conduct a Paranormal Investigation, we all walk thru the building. Our goal is to take a few minutes to share the history. As well as let you see the interior, so you know the layout of the interior. We won't tell ghost stories, unless asked. We want you to experience your own.

     Prior to entering the building, we suggest your group have a discussion about your visit- Speak to your group, about the following details we’ve identified from years of tracking paranormal tours. Doing this will help ensure you have the experience you seek!

  • When you 1st enter, do so quietly. Pay close attention to your surroundings as you walk thru. Pay attention to where your group is, so if you hear footsteps in the attic above you. You'll know if it's someone in your group. A lot has happened in the first 15 minutes of a tour!

  • Bring Flashlights, fully charged, and if you have extra batteries we suggest you leave in the car. They have a way of being completely drained upon entry.

  • Bring anything that records, shoot video, still photo's, digital recorder. Fully charged of course, but leave the devices in the car till your going to use them.

  • Be respectful, and brave. Do not use racial slurs, or mouth off using vulgar language. Especially in the slave dungeon. If someone near you is ignoring this warning-get away from them quickly!

  • Big men draw a few of the spirits out, especially if the living is acting foolish, rude, arrogant. The only people that have been physically thrown are large, cocky men. If someone near you is ignoring this warning-get away from them quickly!

  • When someone gets scared, simply exit the building and walk away till you feel settled-never run! Besides you can't out run them! DON'T SCREAM!!!

  • Take pictures in sets of 3, the 2nd or 3rd tends to capture things your eyes will not see.

  • Pay close attention to your senses, when paranormal activity happens it happens extremely fast. DON'T SCREAM!!!

  • Try to maintain a code of silence, if people are chatting your going to be missing things. We suggest a group leader remind their team-stay quiet!!!

  • Try to get everyone to property, parked, and ready to enter 15 minutes before your scheduled time, feel free to walk around the building taking pictures.

  • Do not arrive intoxicated-we will not let you enter!

  • All smoking is done by your vehicle, nowhere near the building.

  • Dress for cold, expect the temps in building to fluctuate.

  • Share what you experience, even if it's not logical. Odds are good the "Guide", can connect with the source of your experience. Usually the spirits will start engaging a group, at first in a small way. 

  • Remember you have 6 senses, pay close attention to all of them!

  • Remember this is real, nothing is fabricated. Therefore  no one should be here against their will.

  • No one should be brought here, unaware of the potential for a paranormal event! It has been our experience, that you will get exactly what you bring. If angry, you'll get anger. If high energy, fun, it can make the activity go full throttle upon entry
