8-10 pm 10 guests
Standing outside waiting for all the guests to arrive, the front door was open, K2 meters on the display case started flashing, lighting up to red, the highest level.
Basement – Two male guests in the slave quarters investigating, both saw a misty ball of white on the floor in front of them dash away and disappear. One of them darted upstairs with a look of terror on his face! He began to question one of the guides on the spirits, asking if they have ever severely hurt or even killed anyone. He admitted he was just along on the tour with his friend and doesn’t really “get into” the paranormal. After the tour he did state it was way more than what he expected it to be and very much enjoyed the experiences he encountered.
Piano/Front room – using the dowsing rods, they crossed answering questions. Yes for a woman, she then kept pointing one rod toward the corner of the room by the front door. I asked if someone was standing over there, she crossed the rods to say yes!
1st floor – in room #4 one of the female guests K2 meter pegged to red.
2nd floor – in the middle room on the left, female guests were using dowsing rods. One guest stated when she had them she felt unseen hands pushing on hers. One of her friends advised she felt a poke on her back.
Attic – all the guests investigating together used the dowsing rods, they said the rods crossed to say yes when asked are you a boy? They also received a yes when asked are you a girl? They asked the girl do you have blonde hair and were stunned at how quickly the rods moved apart to answer no, as if the spirit was offended by this question. The guests were all gathered around the toys in the middle of the attic, a few noises were heard from across the room & in the corners of the attic. They described the noises as wood creaking like someone shifting their weight while standing. Also a foot shuffle or dragging noise was reported that came from the 2nd floor beneath them. No one was on the 2nd floor at the time.
Basement – we gathered in the slave quarters to use the spirit box. A “spirit box” is a small radio used by sweeping radio stations forwards or backwards at different speeds. I use this device with the antenna down and mostly in the basement to be sure all I hear up is “white noise” and no radio stations come through. The following questions were asked by the group and responses were heard by all through the device:
Is there anyone here? No! (by a male voice). Yes! (by a female voice)
How many people are here? 9 (note there were 9 of us in the room)
Guest asked do you know my name?Yeah
Are you still here? Yes, I am here!
We also heard a female moan very loud, we came to the conclusion this was not a moan of pain but of pleasure. This was definitely a new noise I had never heard before using the device!
Answers using the spirit box stopped despite our continued effort. I set a mag light on the concrete block when we first entered that had not come on while using the spirit box. I moved the mag light to the other side of the room away from us. A few minutes later, the light shined on. We turned off the spirit box and used the mag light to ask questions. It turned on and off responding to the guests.
Back upstairs packing up to leave for the night, the spirits were not finished with us yet!
Dining Room – Female quest sitting in a chair next to cabinet said “something is playing with my hair!” everyone gathered around her and watched in amazement as one lock of the back of her hair was slowly being moved and raised by an unseen force. At times it would “jump” in a swift movement, was crazy to watch!!
The motion lights on the shed began to flash on and off. We stepped outside to see if something was in the yard causing this to happen. Nothing was there and we continued to watch this strange pattern of the lights flashing on an off. This went on for approximately 20 minutes. The pattern wan not just a blinking of on and off. One of guests asked if anyone knew Morse code? The pattern of the flashing was short, short, long, then changed again. I have never witnessed this before in my 3 years of conducting tours. Could it electrical? Yes it could be. Could it be paranormal? I can’t rule it out as paranormal is the unexplained and spirits are known to mess with electric by turning on lights, blowing out light bulbs, etc.
While this craziness was happening with the shed motion lights, the K2 meters on the display case also started pegging up to red. We could see them as we were standing outside on the sidewalk with the front door open to the house. A large BANG was heard that came from the back of the house 1st floor. A couple of the guests went back into the house to investigate and found nothing moved or anyone there!
Things calmed down after that and we departed for the night
