Investigation Update 9.27.2015

Happy Sunday!! As promised, here is some of the activity that's been happening in the Gribble House...

Our week started on Sunday of last week with Dani and a pair of skeptical but open minded investigators. Kristen and Casey had never done anything like paranormal investigating before, but were ready to go! There was a pretty good amount of activity going on in the building. They started their night in the Gribble House area. They placed the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF detector on the rail near the Stage Area and really got down to business. Using both the Ovilus and the Spirit Box, they were able to make contact with a few different spirits. Paul came through several times. At first, Paul's name came across the Ovilus. When they asked if Paul was with them, through the Spirit Box they heard "Yes". They asked Paul if he had a wife, and very politely he replied, "Yes. Thank you for asking". A few seconds later, the name Sandra came across.

At the Stage Area, they made contact with Paul again. This time, while conversing with him, the name Veronica came across the Ovilus. They asked Paul if he was alone and "NO" came across the Ghost Pro. As they were talking with him, they could hear the sounds of creaking- like someone was walking across the stage.

Something sort of strange happened in the Slave Quarters. The investigators were having a conversation with a spirit and were getting pretty prompt answers. They asked how many spirits were in the room and "Nine" was the response. Then they asked how many people were in the room, and "Three" came through. Then they heard the sound of cackling laughter come through the Ghost Box as the word "Story" came across the Ovilus.

Monday night, Braden led the investigation- an investigation with some really strange activity! The night started for Braden in the Gribble House area where he smelled the scent of flowers that were really sweet. Braden had placed the Motion Sensor outside of the gate in that area and there were quite a few spikes through out the night.

The Slave Quarters was the most active area of the building that night. One of the investigators was using the Raggedy Ann doll behind the curtain and she got a lot of spikes. When Braden grabbed the Doll the word "Protect" came through the Ghost Box. Then one of the investigators asked if the spirits could grab the Raggedy Ann while Braden was holding it. Incredibly, the Doll was tugged hard enough in Braden's hands to give him shivers. Crazy!

Ted was our lead investigator on Tuesday evening. The two most active areas were the Stage Area and the Slave Quarters. In the Stage Area they heard the name Paul come through twice, but in an angry and loud voice that did not sound like Paul. One of the investigators, Sean, asked "What's my name", and "Hobbit" came through the Ghost Box. That does seem like much, but Sean's nickname happens to be Hobbit. Pretty neat.

In the Slave Quarters, one of the investigators from England felt a cold spot on his right shoulder. Ted snapped a picture and another investigator used the Digital Thermometer, but they couldn't pinpoint the source of the coldness, or get a response through the Ghost Box about it. Nothing came up on the photograph, either.

The same sort of thing happened in the Residual Area. Everyone investigating felt a distinct cold spot near the floor. Aaron, another investigator, asked "Are you making this spot cold" and "Chill" came up on the Ovilus. The Ovilus was pretty active in the Residual Area. The investigator, Sean, said that he was a "Short, loud jerk" and laughed about it. Just as he finished saying that, the words "Short... Loud... Jerk" came up on the Ovilus. Wow!

Thursday night's investigation had Ted has the lead once again. One of the groups of investigators, Howard and Evelyn, investigated with us again for the third time! Welcome back, guys! There was so much activity that night it's hard to know where to start...

At the Stage Area, there was a great response combo between the Ovilus and the Ghost Box. The investigator, Carly, asked "What is your favorite color?". The response she got through the Spirit Box was "Apple", then over the Ovilus came "Red". Some foul language came through the Ghost Box, as well. Kara, another investigator, asked "Who is here tonight", and "Slut, slut, slut" came through.

In the Gribble House area, both groups smelled the very pungent perfumey, lavender scent at two different times during the night. While seated in one of the metal chairs, Carley felt what seemed to be fingertips touching, or rubbing against her leg.

There was a pretty cool exchange in the Slave Quarters. Carly asked "Who are we talking to". The immediate response they got was "Larry" on the Ovilus. Right after that, everyone in the room heard a very loud "LARRY" in the middle of the room. Everyone thought that the investigator Bill had said it because it was so loud and because it didn't come through the Ghost Box. But, Bill said it wasn't him. You can hear that exchange right here:

The most incredible experience of the night happened in the Residual Area. The name Veronica came through the Ovilus again, along with the name Paul- just like on Sunday of this same week. The group was firmly fixed around the Ovilus trying to figure out the message behind the words coming up on the screen when the investigator, Howard, turned to Ted with a start saying "That was not you!?". Howard told them that he had seen someone walking from the Slave Quarters towards the stairs, turn and disappear. He thought that it had been Ted, even though Ted had been with them in the Residual Area and the other group was in the Gribble House area. How cool is that?

Kelley and Braden were the lead investigators on Friday night- which was a pretty good night. There was a good bit of activity, especially with the new Motion Sensor and the REM Pod. Whenever there were changes in temperature, either the orange (for more heat) or blue (for less) would lite up in correspondence to the actual devices sounding the alarm of activity. It was pretty creepy to see the devices alarm as the spirits were moving either closer or farther from the devices.

The first group that investigated in the Gribble House area had a lot of luck using the Ghost Pro and EMF detector in congruence with one another. They were able to get the EMF to go off on cue by asking yes or no questions. While at the Stage Area, this group asked the spirits if they would like to play with the new Boo Bear device and make it move. The response they got was two fold- first they heard "Yea" in a male voice, and then "Do what?" from a female voice.

The second group investigating started their night in the Slave Quarters. They had a really decent amount of EMF, Raggedy Ann Doll, Ghost Meter Pro, and Spirit Box activity in there. One of the guests, Candice, had her nickname of "Candy" come through the Spirit Box, which is always cool. The group then asked how long the spirits had been in the Gribble House and they got a couple of differing responses. First they heard "One hundred", then "Forty" came through twice in two different voices, then "Three".

Braden noticed in the Slave Quarters that both the EMF Detector and the Raggedy Ann doll were going off at the same time and this is what he captured:

Finally, Saturday was spent with Kelley and Braden once again. Everyone who investigated was really into it and engaged in all the activity. Some of the guests were able to capture orbs in their photographs and every group recorded audio to listen to later on.

Once again, the Gribble House was filled with the very distinctive aroma of floral perfume. Someone, it seemed that the scent was coming in waves that night, with concentrated whiffs blowing through. At one point, Kelley was walking towards the Gribble House area with the Mel Meter and she mentioned that it seemed to be a lot colder in that area than the rest of the building. When she said that the word "Cold" came through the Spirit Box.

The Slave Quarters was the most active area of the building on Saturday. Lots of voices came through the Ghost Box- male, female, and child voices. One of the investigators swore that she saw the Raggedy Ann's hair move right around the same time that another investigator felt her left shoulder being touched and that area of her body get very cold. An investigator in her group was even able to confirm the temperature drop with the Digital Thermometer. The group experienced chills all night long- so much so that the group started using the Digital Thermometer quite a bit. At one point, an investigator noticed that the Raggedy Ann doll was only 61 degrees when the rest of the room was much warm. As they were watching the Doll with the Thermometer, they watched the temperature drop all the way down to 31 degrees... wow!

Another pretty cool thing was when Kelley and Braden brought out the Laser Grid to test out and see if they could capture a few shadows... it looks pretty cool for sure.

Lots of fun activity and lots of fun investigators this past week- and we are looking forward to having a whole lot more in the weeks to come. Remember, you can always tag yourself in the images we post, or tag us in any images you post with #gribblehouse or @gribblehouse!

Investigation Update 9.20.2015

We really enjoy updating you folks on what's going on in the Gribble House- and we have been getting some crazy action in the building! Here's what's been going on...

Dani was our lead investigator this past Monday night when our week began. She investigated with a young married couple who came in with open minds, which is key to a great investigation! They started their night in the Slave Quarters where they brought out two pieces of our new equipment- the new REM Pod and the new Motion Sensor. Dani put the Motion Sensor behind the curtain in the room and it went off a few times- strange, given that there was absolutely no one behind the curtain near the wall...

At the Stage Area, a few very strange things happened. While they were watching the TV monitors, there were some orbs flitting across the screen very rapidly, changing course in mid-flight. While the investigators were trying to make contact with spirits they suddenly heard soft, old melodic music coming through the Ghost Box.

Another strange thing happened in the Residual Area. They were asking the spirits they were conversing with if they knew secrets, which they were told they did, and a spirit named Veronica came through. Veronica tried to touch the husband of the group, but apparently could not.

Ted had a pair of investigators with him on Wednesday night who had not really done any investigating before. The night had a strange vibe to it- it seemed quiet but like the building was on the edge of something big happening.

Paul made contact at the Stage Area. While the investigators were watching the TV monitor, Ted asked, "Paul, could you get us three tall, frosty beers?". The response was firm and quick- "NO". But, it wasn't Paul who answered! It was a female voice.

In the Gribble House Area, there was a lingering scent wafting through the area. However, although it's usually where the investigators smell that strong, floral perfume smell, tonight it wasn't quite the same. Ted took the investigators into that area twice during the night- once for the overview and then a second time to seriously investigate. The first time they went into the Gribble House Area, one of the investigators, Tom, said he thought he smelled stale beer. Later on, both Robert and Tom smelled it again and thought this time it was more like perfume.

They had a pretty cool response through the Ghost Box in the Slave Quarters. When they went into the room, they got the name Cecile come throught. When they said 'Hello Cecile', the response they got was 'Hello boys'. Pretty cool!

We had Kelley as our lead on Thursday evening with a great group of investigators- they were really into it! One of the men who came into the building was a minister, and he had some interesting experiences. While they were in the Gribble House, there was a lot of chatter with religious undertones coming through the Spirit Box. The group had turned on their Spirit Box before they left the Safe Room and as soon as they walked into the Warehouse the words "Lord" and "Father" came through. They heard words like "Church", "Cleanse", "Pray", and "Reverend" on both the Ovilus and the Ghost Box. When the word "Pray" came through, the group bowed their heads and said a prayer for the spirits in the building. When they had finished "Demon... killed" came through the Ovilus. Very interesting.

Another group who investigated on Thursday night was the Rodriguez family. Quite a few of them had their names come over the Spirit Box. Their names were called after they asked the spirits who they would like to talk to . When they asked them who they were speaking with they heard names like Sue, Elvis, John, and Nate.

One of the men in this group of investigators, AJ, had a very creepy encounter. As he was in the Slave Quarters, he started to feel strange, and then got the sensation of hands being wrapped around his neck. Scary!

Kait and Kelley took the lead on Friday night! Kelley was spending time with one of the groups when she captured this cool EVP.

"Don'" is what I hear coming through the Spirit about y'all?
Posted by Kelley Clements on Friday, September 18, 2015
You can hear the same male voice say "Don't... like... people" through the Spirit Box. The group that Kelley was with when she captured that EVP was making contact with a spirit who called himself Jim. Jim was pretty chatty, so perhaps it wasn't him who said he didn't like people. Jim told them that he had been in the building for "Eight" years, and when they asked him to touch the EMF detector, "Press" and "Touch" came through.

The other group that investigated with Kait and Kelley were using the Ovilus in the Slave Quarters. The word "Eat" came through a few times on the Ovilus, so they asked what the spirit wanted to eat. The response was "Pizza" over the Ghost Box. This group spoke Spanish to one another quite a bit, and to the spirits as well. Some Spanish responses came through back on the Ghost Box, which is really cool.

At the Stage Area, a pair of investigators had some amazing activity with the EMF detector. They were able to get the spirits to touch the EMF detector and light up very vibrantly when they asked politely. They also had some significant temperature drops that they documented with the Digital Thermometer. The temperature drops came in direct relation to the the EMF activity.

And Saturday! Kelley and Ted lead the investigation for Saturday night. Lots of crazy activity in the building. The Stanley group had some very strange encounters. While they were in the Slave Quarters, one of the ladies in that party had her back touched! It felt like someone had laid a hand on her back and was rubbing it. When one of the other women asked if the spirit was touching her friend, the word "Back" came through the Ghost Box. You can hear that exchange right here:

Her friend told her that someone was touching her back, so she asked the spirits about it, then "Back" came over the Spirit Box, so that creeped her out.
Posted by Kelley Clements on Saturday, September 19, 2015

For obvious reasons, that investigator was pretty unnerved by that! We totally understand that. After a few minutes, she continued to investigate and continued to get some great reactions through the equipment.

The ladies investigating that night had some really good give and take all night long. One investigator, Kayla, was singing to the spirits in the building. At the Stage Area, she asked the spirits if it was okay if she sang to them. The response she got was "Just sing". These ladies heard from a lot of female spirits, and a lot of children, as well.

There were actually quite a few child responses in the building on Saturday night. In the Slave Quarters, an investigating group of five made contact with a child as soon as they walked into the room. While using the Ovilus, the word "Papa" came up right away. The Raggedy Ann doll and the Ghost Meter Pro was very active for them- so active in fact, one of the investigators swore she saw Raggedy Ann's head move slightly, like someone was touching her.

It was a great week for us, and for our investigators. We'll be posting videos, EVP clips and more images as the week goes on. If you see yourself, or if you'd like to post anything you've captured yourself, feel free to tag us with @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse!

Guest Investigator Video

Peter and his wife were vacationing in Hilton Head when they made the trip into Savannah to investigate with us at GHPE. They had a really great back and forth conversation with Paul using the EMF detector. Here's a clip of one of their conversations:

Investigation Update 9.13.2015

It's been a crazy week of weather in Savannah... rain, no rain, storms, hot, cool, breezy- but that never stops our investigators! Here's some of the action we've captured in the Warehouse this week...

This past Sunday night was still during the very busy Labor Day weekend, so GHPE hosted two investigations that night! Kelley took the lead during both investigations. The first had quite a bit of activity. Two investigators, Abby and Jim, had their names called over the Ghost Box. At first, they thought that the name Tim had been called, but when they asked they got the response, "No, Jim". Apart from their names being called, there were some fairly nasty words floating around the building. Everything from "Slut", "Wench", "Penis", "Bitch", and "Jerk".

On an interesting note, in addition to those crude and base names that the investigators were being called, there was a religious undertone to some of the responses. They heard the words "Bible", "Jesus", and "Christ" come through, as well.

The second tour of Sunday night had a lot of similarity to the first! They heard the name Jim come through the Ghost Box, and had some biblical words called too.The words "Purgatory", "Demons", "Bible", and "Jesus" came up on the Ovilus, as well.

One of the groups made contact with a spirit who said his name was Dwight. As they spoke with him, he said the word "Ash" a few times. The investigators told Kelley that they know a man named Dwight Ash... pretty cool!

On a more chilling note, the investigators heard the phrase "Kill everyone" come over the Spirit Box, then "Beat", "Grab", and "Run"...

Ted was our lead investigators on Wednesday night with a great group. It was a very active night in the Warehouse. However, the activity that was happening wasn't necessarily over the Ghost Box- there was a lot of strange and creepy stuff happening all over the building.

Ted led one of the groups into the Gribble House area to start their investigation, and then went back to the Safe Room to lead the second group towards the Slave Quarters. As they were walking that direction, they heard the sound of a child's voice calling from the Residual Area. He called "HEYYYYY.... WOOOAH". It was chilling and very distinctive- you can listen to it below.

The entire group with Ted heard the call, but when he went to ask the group in the Gribble House if they had heard it, no one had.

Ted then went into the Slave Quarters and took a seat next to the table. As he was sitting there, it sounded like someone was moving a chair, but it got louder and louder and began to sound like a table being dragged behind the wall in the Slave Quarters. Ted walked out of the Slave Quarters to see if anything was moving around in the Warehouse and noticed that the group in the Gribble House area had left. They moved out of that area because they were hearing the sounds of what seemed to be metallic banging coming from the Slave Quarters. So strange!

Later on in the night, two guests, Cary and Michelle, were watching the TV monitors. As they were watching, they could see the figure of a person walking outside of the Slave Quarters towards the Residual Area, then move out of view. But it wasn't any of their fellow investigators...

On Thursday night, Dani was our lead investigator. They started their investigation in the Residual Area, and right off the bat they got some immediate responses. They heard the words "Mommy", "Pay attention", and "Keeping notes". Dani asked if the spirits were glad to have someone to talk to and "Yes" was the response.

In the Gribble House area, the investigators used the Ghost Pro to make contact with who they believe to be Carrie Oleander. They had a really good conversation with her. It went something like this:
Did you live in the Gribble House: No
Is this Carrie: Yes
Carrie, it this your perfume: No
Is this Eliza's perfume: Yes
Is Eliza here: Yes
Is Maggie here: No
Do you know your attacker: Yes
Do you know your attacker's name: NO ANSWER
Are you afraid: Yes

Kelley was our lead investigator again on Friday night. The group she had with her was very into the investigation. It was a strange night in the building. Strange things went on. In fact, Kelley had recorded over an hour of audio on her phone but when she went to listen to it later on, it was completely empty!

They heard the voices of quite a few children and women come through on Friday night. When they asked for the names of any of the children, "Kids", and "Bobby" came through. GHPE has some new equipment, and one of those pieces is a high tech motion detector. It has a large, wide range, so Kelley put it over in the far corner near the windows where the Shadow Man had been seen in the past.

And last but not least, Saturday night! Ted was in charge on a pretty active night. At the Stage Area, the investigators heard from Paul. One of the investigators, John, put a $5 bill on the chair and asked Paul if he wanted the cash. The EMF detector flashed twice for yes. Then when John asked Paul how he was doing and Paul called him a "Dick".

In the Slave Quarters, there was a rather severe temperature drop. Over by the sink, the temp dropped from 81 degrees all the way down to 71 degrees- all documented with the Digital Thermometer. Then the temperature rose right back up 81 degrees within a matter of seconds. The Raggedy Ann doll was very active in the Slave Quarters, as well. In fact, she was blinking so strongly that one of the investigators put the EMF detector over her and it spiked as well. The mother of the group, Judy, asked "What do you want me to do tonight" and the response over the Ghost Box was "Mom on the floor". Odd...

All in all, we had a really good week with some great investigators. We've got new equipment to investigate with, so look forward to hearing more about it in the coming week! As always, feel free to tag yourself in any pictures, or to tag us with @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
