Investigation Update 7.26.2015

There was a lot of energy floating around the Gribble House this week- here's what happened...

Kelley had a great group with her this past Sunday night. One of the groups investigating had a really great conversation with a male spirit in the Slave Quarters. When they stated that they wanted to hang out so they could sit and talk "Okay" came through the Ghost Box. They then asked if a spirit was sitting in the chair- "Yea... me" was the response. They asked if anyone was here with them and "Here with you" came back. "Why are you here" was then asked and "I don't know" was spoken. When the group attempted to find out what the spirits' name was, they asked "Are you Mike or Yusef?". The response they got was a correction- "Tom".



At the end of the evening, when it came time to exit the evening, they said goodbye to Tom. The response they got was "Stay".

On Tuesday night, Tracy was our lead investigator. One of the groups investigating was very much into the investigation because of a lifetime of paranormal experiences. They had great responses and activity throughout the entire night.


The other group investigating had a lot of luck with the Ghost Box. At one point, Tracy was sitting with them in the Slave Quarters, and it seemed like a lot of the responses they were getting were garbled coming through- like the spirits weren't strong enough to fully respond. Tracy then asked "What do we need to do to give you more energy" and "Die" was the response. Chilling.


The group that investigated on Wednesday night with Kait had a good amount of previous investigation experience, and they knew about how most of the equipment worked. Needless to say, they were ready and raring to get into the building and collect evidence.

At the Stage Area, they had an interesting encounter with Steve. When they approached the Stage Area, Steve immediately came through and said "Sup". Kait told the group investigating that Steve has a "thing" for women with long hair. So, one of the men said that Steve would love his fiancee. Steve wasn't especially impressed and responded, with attitude, "Yea, right".


In the Slave Quarters, the EMF Detector and the Raggedy Ann doll went off almost constantly. They heard the names Zack, Horace, John, and Yusef.

Kelley had a chaotic night on Thursday- it seemed like every spirit in the building was ready and raring to communicate with the investigators. This started even before the "official" investigation began. When one of the investigators asked how many spirits were in the building that night "Seventy" was the response. That's a lot of energy clamoring for attention. Needless to say, the building was full of energy and activity.



There were quite a few physical responses to questions in the building. One woman asked the spirits to touch her, or to pull her hair. She had a strange sensation on her head and the words "Pull it" and "Look up" came through the Ghost Box. A little while later, another investigator felt her legs being touched.


A lot of the responses coming through the Ghost Box were from children. When they asked how old the children are in the building "Five and six" came through. The kids seemed to be chattering quite a bit, saying things like "Hi Dad", and "Mommy".

Dani was joined on Friday night with two of our new lead investigators, Braden and Ted, who are currently in training! They had two investigations that night. The first one had a lot of names called through the Ghost Box. Abigail, Dan, and Ian.


Braden and Ted and the investigators had a interesting experience at the Stage Area. The EMF detector was set up on the chair, and it was flickering away. When Ted and Braden went to approach the chair, the flickering would stop. As soon as they backed away, the flickering would begin again. This happened throughout the evening, with different groups of investigators.


The second investigation had similar experiences with the EMF detector at the Stage Area. A couple of times, the EMF detector actually fell over. When the investigators asked who was responsible for it being knocked over, Paul said that it was him.


Next to the Stage Area is where the TV is kept so investigators can observe the entire warehouse and its activity. The investigators experimented with asking the spirits to name the camera channel where activity was happening. Whenever a large number of orbs or the activity detector would go off in a certain area, the Spirit Box would say the corresponding camera channel. Very cool!


Some strange noises were heard throughout the building that night, as well. They could heard loud banging on the window, as well as in the Gribble House and Slave Quarters.

Finally, this last evening, Dani and Kelley led the investigation. The groups had some really interesting conversations through the Spirit Boxes. One conversation was focused around the word "Dead". Almost every question had the word "Dead" as the response. "Who are the spirits inside this home", "Dead". "Are you telling us that you are dead", "Dead". "Did you die because of a fever", "Dead... dead... dead". "How did you pass away", "Dead... Please help... get me out".



The Gribble House area was by far the most active area of the building that night. Shadows were seen skirting around the area, and you could hear the rustling coming from the caged storage area. That was creepy, especially coupled with the fact that the blue motion detectors were going off.


The name Isabella came through the Ghost Box quite a few times. It sounded like a male voice was calling for here through the building, but she never responded.

It was a great week for us, and for our investigators as well!

Investigation Update 7.19.2015

Wow! What a great week we had at the Gribble House Paranormal Experience. Here's what's been going on...

On Sunday night, Kelley had a really good investigation. Certain words are said frequently in the Gribble House, and a lot of those were heard on Sunday- words like "Home", "Sit", and "Leave". You can hear these almost every night you go into the warehouse.


But, there were quite a few exchanges that night that weren't so common. One of the investigators, Carrie, was told she was pretty. When she repeated the word to make sure she heard correctly, they heard "Yes, pretty" come through! Then Carrie asked the spirits if they could see her and she got the response "Only Paul". She then asked Paul if she had long hair- "Yes".


One pretty neat thing that happened was when Kelley asked if Maggie was in the Gribble House area, and "Maggie left" was the response.

Kelley was our lead investigator again on Monday night, and again, we collected some great evidence. All night long, the groups investigating had some great Spirit Box conversations. They heard a long and hard "SHHHHHHHHHHHH" come through the Ghost Box when the dad of the group told the spirit that he was conversing with that he had three ladies with him, and that the spirit needed to be a gentleman and to mind his language. So, the spirit straightened up his act and then called the ladies "Beautiful".



In the Slave Quarters, there was an interesting interaction. The group heard the word "March" come through the Spirit Box, so one of the investigators asked if the spirit had died in March. The response was "Yes". Then they asked the spirit if he could leave here, and "This room" came through. Then they asked why the spirit couldn't leave the room and "Inmate" was heard...


Tuesday was a really good night, and Dani had a great group to investigate with. On certain nights, certain areas of the Gribble House are more active than others. On Tuesday, the Stage Area and the Gribble House areas were sort of quiet, but the Residual Area and Slave Quarters were very active. In the Residual Area they heard from Paul and Steve, and Tom. They also spoke to someone who said they were a "Slave", and when they asked if it was hot they got the reply of "As Hell".



In the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll was very active- she lit up almost the whole time the groups were in there. The first group was asked to "Leave" over and over through the Ghost Box. The second group heard the names "Mike" and "Lincoln" come through. When one of the investigators asked Lincoln to sit in her lap, all communication with Lincoln went away.

Kelley and her group of investigators had an incredibly active night on Friday! It seemed like there was a buzz of activity through the entire building. When Kelley was opening up the Slave Quarters for the night, the room smelled just like is usually does, but when she went back to set up the candles, there was an over powering scent of cigar in the room.



Two investigators that night were Zach and Kayla. Zach had some incredible activity around him. He heard the names "William", which was the name of his recently deceased father, and "Rachael", which is his step mother. Then a full sentence came through the Spirit Box that said "Zach... it's been a long time... hey buddy". Amazing.


Another pair of investigators were Jadeth and Crystal. Both of them had their names said over the Ghost Box. Jadeth had a spirit tell her that he was "Fifteen" years old, and that he wanted a "Kiss". Jadeth and the fifteen year old boy had quite a long conversation. He said that he had seen the "Murders" but that he was too "Scared" to talk about them. When she asked him "Scared?" he said, "Of course".



In the Slave Quarters, there was a baby bird trapped behind the grating. Through the Spirit Box, the investigators heard "Help bird". But don't worry, the bird has escaped.


When closing down for the evening, Kelley had another interesting experience. While she was packing up to leave, she could see the silhouette of a man standing in front of our Office. Then, as she was pushing the TV back into the Office, she could see his reflection in the TV screen. Creepy!

Finally, we had two investigations on Saturday night. The first group had a lot of activity in the Slave Quarters. One of the investigators, Ted, had a lot of activity revolving around him. At one point, Ted asked if the spirits liked all the questions that the investigators asked and "Please stop" came through. When Ted then said that he was going to walk around for a little bit, "Wait" came through the Spirit Box. They also heard "Get out", "Sit... talk", "Help", "Stinky", "I know" and "We'll wait".



In the Gribble House area, the investigators had the Ghost Meter Pros out to use. At one point, the light turned bright red on the device and "I'm back" came through the Spirit Box. When they asked who, they heard "Steve".

During the second tour, the groups investigating had a bunch of activity in the Slave Quarters again. The language in the Slave Quarters was pretty harsh. They heard "Jerk", "Bitch", "Piss off", and "Prostitute". They also heard "Yes ma'am", "Born again", "Stop", "Get out", "Bueno", "She's short", and "Help", several times. They heard the names Joe, Mickey, Steve, Judas, Bella, Annette, Jamal, Jeff, and Dennis. The conversation they had with Dennis was pretty interesting. They asked Dennis how long he had been in the Slave Quarters, and "Eight" was the answer.




They had some really good yes and no responses, too. For example, when they asked if they would touch the Raggedy Ann doll, "Yes" came through, and she lit up.


One of the ladies investigating had been trying to converse with the women inside the building. When she couldn't get contact with them because there were so many men coming through the Ghost Box, she firmly told the male spirits to let the ladies speak. Then, "I'm tired of her" came through the Spirit Box.

Over all, it was a very active week in the warehouse and we collected some great evidence. If you collected any of your own that you would like to share with us from your investigation, please send them our way!

Investigation Update 7.12.2015

What a great week we had at the Gribble House... here's what happened!

Susannah and Dani had a cool group with her on Monday night. Off the bat, one of the groups watching our CCTV caught a glimpse of a black figure or form going through the Slave Quarters. Dani and one of her groups saw the door of the Slave Quarters open on its own!


One of the groups that night was in contact with a soldier in the Residual Area. He even told them his rank and Commanding Officer, and even tried to get the attention of one of the investigators that night. Just a few minutes later, they heard a man's voice come through the Ghost Box and they heard "It's coming"... creepy.



On Friday night, Kait had her first crazy experience with the Raggedy Ann doll! All night long in the Slave Quarters, the doll went crazy. This all happened while the group was asking yes or no questions. One of the questions they asked was what the spirits' favorite color was and the response was "White". Each of of the guests heard their names called through the Spirit Box, too...



Saturday night was great, as well. Dani was our lead investigator with some great groups. At the stage area the investigators heard a lot of words that would be commonly heard in a general store- which makes sense since they were conversing with Paul. They heard "Ice cream", "Socks", and "Coffee". They asked Paul if he liked women, to which they got a very loud and proud "YES". Someone at the stage area, however, wasn't very happy with the group talking with Paul. As they were conversing, some other voice came through the Ghost Box and they heard "Leave". As they were walking away, they could hear some old timey music coming through.


When this group was at the Gribble House area, something very strange happened. The father and son team that was investigating said that they could see a light inside the gated area. As they watched the light, they could see it coming towards them, then come through the gate and then out the fence and out the door... then the REM Pod went off like crazy!


Here's hoping you all had as great of a week as we did... And here's to more investigating in the week to come!

Investigation Update 7.5.2015

It's been a great holiday week here in Savannah! The city has been full of activity- and so has the Gribble House! Here's a recap of what has been going on...

On Sunday night, Susannah had a great interaction as soon as the night started. As she was explaining to her group of investigators how to use the equipment and how the night would pan out, she turned on the Ghost Box. Immediately, she got the response of "Be quiet". Apparently, not everyone was happy for the investigation to be happening.



Throughout the night, the group got a lot of war and military related words coming through the Spirit Boxes. They heard word like "Disaster", "Troop", and "March". One man investigating asked if there were any soldiers in the building and a very young male voice responded with "Yes, sir".


Kelley was the lead investigator on Monday evening. Two of the investigators with her that night had their full name said over the Ghost Box, which is always cool. But, they also heard quite a few distressing pleads coming through the Spirit Box. They heard "Help" a lot, and "Leave".


One other time, the investigators heard what sounded like quite a few children talking all at the same time through the Ghost Box. This was just after Kelley was telling the group about taking the Ragged Ann doll behind the curtain in the Slave Quarters.

The Slave Quarters was the center of the activity on Tuesday night. Susannah and the investigators heard from an English man there, who said "Hello". We believe is name may be "Pete" because he also said that name as well. They also heard the name "Chootie" twice, which is a nickname that Jackie, one of our investigators that evening, and her boyfriend have for each other.



The Raggedy Ann doll was active all evening long. At one point, the doll even fell over with no one near it. Everyone exclaimed at how amazing that was, and through the Ghost Box they heard "Wow!".


At the Stage Area, one of the investigators, Alyssa, knocked twice on the wood. She then asked if the spirits could knock once. Just then, they heard a loud banging coming from the far corner of the building, and a scream came from the Spirit Box...

Lots and lots of name came through the Ghost Box on Wednesday night. Kelley lead the investigation with a great group .They heard Amelia, Yusef, Seth, Debbie. Yvette, Frank, Steve, Annette, and Josette. One of the spirits they communicated with was French, and continually said "Au revoir" over the Ghost Box.



They had one very interesting conversation in which one of the ladies investigating asked a spirit how long they had been there. The response was "Where"? When she responded with "The room I am recording video", they heard "You are" come through. Then they asked if anyone was sitting in the chair in the room and "You bet" was the response.



Kait led the way on Thursday night. She and her group started their investigation in the Slave Quarters, and immediately one of the women was told to "Leave". The same voice came through and told one of them men investigating that something was coming and that it wasn't "Going to be so nice"... How ominous!


And finally, last evening. Kelley and her group heard a lot of names coming through the Spirit Boxes, like Linda, John, Derek, Hunter, William, Sean, Chris, Mike, Annette, and Mike.

When one of the investigators asked if the spirit could touch the green light on the EMF detector, they got the response of "Yes" and "I can". Shortly after, there was a drastic drop in temperature in the Slave Quarters that they documented with the digital thermometer.



When they were in the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll was going off almost constantly. When they asked who was touching the doll, "Monique" came through.


It was a really good holiday week, and we collected a lot of evidence! Remember, if you have any audio or photos you'd like to share, be sure to send them our way.
