And of course “THE DEAD FLASHLIGHT ” turned back on as we left.

At 7pm on Dec 18th, Sally and I met up in the basement at the fireplace with the rest of the group. At 710, everyone left to their respective rooms. I wanted to stay where it was warm

I proceeded to add more wood to the fire and make me a man fire. It was beginning to be nice and cozy. We had 2 flashlights. One was on a 24volt rechargeable battery. That one suddenly turned off. We had another one, an LED light on 4 D batteries. We turned that on and it worked.

I was sitting on a chair directly in front of the fireplace and Sally was sitting on the hearth to the left of the fire.

At 7:25 I heard a chain rattling on concrete- like one shake. Very distinctive sound coming from the dungeon room. I asked sally if she had heard anything and she said no but felt a “heavy presence”. She made light of it and said “that’s where they chained up the Negros!”. So i proceeded to shake it off as being an odd noise and went back to staring at my man fire.

At 7:40 I heard about two to three shakes of a chain on concrete from the room. Now the sound also reminded me of maybe like a tin cup on prison bars as well. This sound shook me up, I saw nothing, just the Sound coming from the room “LOUD AND CLEAR”. I asked sally if she heard the noise and she said “YES”. I told her to grab the flashlight and we are out of there.

We did not want to meet the guy with the chain, so we decided to give them their privacy. Whatever it was in that room, I knew it was empty up till something started to rattle chains.

We proceeded quickly to the back door, and went to the car.

And of course “THE DEAD FLASHLIGHT ” turned back on as we left.

Ghost Hunting House Rules

          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 increase the chances that you have the experience you seek!

  • WHISPER: 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!

  • CHARGE BATTERIES: 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.

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

  • POLITENESS: 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! We have a saying, you'll get what you bring in. Show up with a chip on the shoulder, pissed, angry you'll bring out pissed and angry. Happy, friendly and amazing things can happen

  • PHYSICAL CONTACT: Big men draw a few of the spirits out, especially if 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!

  • UNCONTROLLED SCREAMING/GIGGLING:When someone gets scared, or weird in any way, simply escort them to exit the building and walk away till you feel they are settled-never run! Besides you can't out run them! DON'T SCREAM!!!

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

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

  • DON'T BE LATE: Try to get everyone to the property, parked, and ready to enter 15 minutes before your scheduled time, feel free to walk around the building taking pictures.

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

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

  • SHARE: 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.

  • BRAVERY: 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.
