Saturday night!

Saturday 1/27/18 8pm-Midnight Tour started in the cistern room in the basement. From the slave quarters we heard a noise made by metal. We entered the room and found the chain hanging over the block by 3 links. Maglight flashlights were set up on the block and turned on and off when asked and not before any questions were asked. We spent approximately 20 minutes in this room. On the first floor in the piano room the group heard wood creaking coming from the back of the house. Not footsteps however, wood creaking as if someone was shifting their weight from one leg to the other. The tour continued throughout the house. The last stop was the attic. I stepped outside to retrieve something from my vehicle. I exited through the cistern room. When I returned one cabinet door was open. My group was still upstairs and I know that door was not open when I passed it 5 minutes or less prior to exiting the building. I always shut the doors if not lock them as well. In my five plus years with the hotel, I have never had this happen. Guests reported KII meters spiking to red on the second floor in the bay window room. The other couple stated they had something growl at them on the second floor outside the bay room window. I asked them to show me where the sound/growl was heard, they pointed to the hallway door/old bathroom area/river side of the house. Later in the night myself and the two guests that heard the growl decided to sit quietly in the bay window room and just listen. At the end of the hallway, toward the back of the house, by the window we heard scratching on the foam insulation. We watched, then walked over to the area, nothing was there. We mocked the sound by lightly scratching on the foam insulation and decided this was indeed the noise we heard. Dowsing rods were used throughout the house, fireplace room, piano room Vi’s room & the second floor. The piano room was by far the best area that night for responses with the rods. In Vi’s room a maglight was set on the windowsill and turned on & off 4 or 5 times then abruptly stopped. The slave quarters was visited again and again the maglights were set up, responded to questions. Very exciting night with new things happening. May be not new however, fir

Ghost Hunting and the 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!
