Skeptical journalist cured, in one visit!

Is there life after death?

There are people who can answer with a definitive yes. I am not one of those people.

I am not going to argue that there is a higher power

that is controlling everything, but I am a skeptic.

I need to have proof if there is something out there that is beyond this world.

This is why I jumped at the chance to go to Morse Mill Hotel for this article. The hotel is said to be haunted. It was used for

everything from a hotel and a personal home, to a post office and half way house. Some of the guests ranged from Al Capone to Charlie Chaplin, to Jesse and Frank James. It is currently under construction to transform the hotel into a bed and breakfast.

I went into the experience wanting to see some sort of proof on the existence of ghosts and paranormal. I am not here to tell you whether or not ghosts exist, but rather I will tell you what I experienced and you can make your own decision.

First thing you must know is that there is no electricity in the

hotel. The electricity that is there is for the primary source of allowing reconstruction crews to use their equipment.

There are alarms on all the doors. No one can come or go from the building without being heard or seen.

The equipment we used were K2 meters, also known as an EMF detector. These are used to determine a change in the electromagnetic fields.

We also used Mag light flashlights to allow Communication with any “spirits”.

The last object was dowsing rods. These are used by holding them very still and asking yes or no questions. The answer is determined

by whether or not they cross or uncross in the middle.I also took with me a still camera, a video

recorder, and an audio recorder. It is said that there are often heard whispers or other sounds on recording devices.

We first were taken on a tour of the building. The meters

would change from green lights when there was not any so called “contact” to orange and red when there was large amounts of “contact”. These changes were caused by a change in the magnetic field around us.The tour guide Dawn began

to knock on the walls. There would come a sound that appeared

to be knocking from the upstairs floors. This was possibly

from the settling of the building since it is over two hundred years

old. It has probably settled, long ago!

We were also instructed on how to use the Mag light Flashlight

to get a response from the so called spirits.

After we finished the tour we

were allowed to explore the house

on our own. I decided to return

to the attic. This is where there

is supposedly the spirit of a little

girl named Annabelle. Earlier in

the night I had spoken in the room

stating that my mother’s name

was Annabelle and that she was

no longer alive.

So I decided to see if I would

get any type of response in the

room when I returned. My partner

and I went up and set up the

Mag Light on the floor.

There are toys set

up in the room for the little girl, so

in some ways I guess I was talking

out loud to the toys. I stated

that we would need to be leaving

and that if there was anyone in

the room that they would need

to turn on the flashlight and we

would stay. Suddenly the flash

light turned on. There was not

anyone near the light and neither

of us was moving to were the

light might have gotten shaken

and turned on. OK, so this is really


I proceeded to tell a story in

the room and when I was finished

I stated that the light would have

to go off so that we would know

it was time to leave. The light

proceeded to turn off, again no

one was near it.

We said goodbye

to whatever or whoever was

in the room with us. And left

the building for the night, again

insuring that everything was still

locked and the alarms were still

set and there was no one else in the house besides the tour guide,

myself, and my partner.

As I stated earlier, I am a skeptic by nature. I went into this wanting proof of life after death. I know what I heard and saw that night. I am not going to say that I believe in everything that happened, but I am a little less of a skeptic now. It's not easy to dissmiss things seen by your own eyes.

So I leave it up to you, fine readers, to take a tour of this amazing piece of history and you can decide for yourself if there really is life after death.

We walking by the side yard, before leaving. When the k2 began lighting to red then back to green without the person moving so it was not the electric wires.

I was running low on rational explanations. Something beyond my understanding was happening here


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.
