Investigation Update 7.23.2017

What a busy, busy week we just had full of activity and fun! Here is just a little bit of the lots of activity we collected this past seven days-

Kelley took over for the first investigation of the week on Monday with a fairly big group what was super excited to join us in the building. One of the biggest overarching and common types of activity the investigators noticed that night was the distinct temperature drops that happened all over the building. All over the warehouse they noticed that the temperature would drop drastically, as much as ten degrees, all which they documented using the Digital Thermometer.



The investigators also noticed that the word "Death" came through quite a bit and fairly frequently in different hot spots, as well as the phrase "A death". These words and phrases were combined with other phrases and words that had to do with being sick and dying. They heard "Help", "He's sick", "I'm done" and "Enough".



One of the investigators in the building that night had a very personal and sensitive moment while in the Slave Quarters. For what seemed like no reason whatsoever she felt an overwhelming rush of emotion that was so strong she started to cry. When she went to Kelley and told her about it, even the thought of that situation made her start to cry again...

Tuesday night had Willie as the lead investigator with a great group of folks, two of whom had investigated with Willie a few years ago. This time, they came back with their own equipment and were super pumped up about a second shot in the building.



The REM Pod did its thing that night, what it does almost every time Willie is the lead investigator. Once he turned on the device and set it down and walked away the Pod started to flash, and then did again once he started the History portion of the night. It's almost like the Spirits in the building know what Willie is expecting of them. Pretty interesting.


One of the men investigating in the group was holding the Ovilus as he walked towards the Stage Area. Before he stepped up on Stage he accidentally kicked the stage side and the Ovilus flashed the word "Jerk". This was memorable because the word stayed up on the screen until he called his wife over and she saw it on there.

Ted was back in the building on Wednesday night! He got to investigate with a mother and daughter pair who were really curious about how their night would go but were familiar with the Gribble House because of all the Ghost Shows that they watch!



The investigators were greeted as they entered each hot spot that night, although some times it wasn't very welcoming. When they got to the Stage Area they heard "Get out" and when they moved to the Slave Quarters they heard "Hello". The same thing happened in the Gribble House area, but when they moved into the Residual Area, the daughter investigating heard her named called as way of greeting... "Haley".


The Slave Quarters had some really great activity that night, the ladies had some amazing question and response time in that hot spot. They asked "What is your name", "Stewie". "What can we do for you", "Nothing". "How old are you", "50". "Did you die in this house", "I don't know". Then they asked "Can you make this light flicker I am holding", and they heard "Yes ma'am", which was followed by her K-II Meter flashing all the way up to red.

Thursday had Ted as lead investigator again and yet again we had some repeat investigators who had been with us way back in 2013! That mother and daughter got to head straight into the building that night and skip the history and equipment portion because they already knew the ropes. The other folks in the building that night were really excited to get inside the Gribble House.



One of the investigators, Teresa, heard her name come through the Spirit Box several times that night just like it had happened the first time she was in the building several years ago. This happened the most at the Stage Area. There were a lot of names flying around the building that night, including Paul, Ted, Anne, John, Pete, Peter, Teresa, Autumn, Steve, Benjamin, and Bingo.



In the Residual Area, the Raggedy Ann doll was really active. When they asked "Who is touching the doll" they heard the reply of "We are"...

Kaitlyn was the lead investigator on Friday night on an evening that started out really strangely. As Kaitlyn was explaining how the night would go the investigators heard what sounded like shuffling feet behind them. Whenever she would stop talking the shuffling would get quiet, and when she would start taking again it would start up and get progressively louder as she spoke. Creepy.



Paul was his regular old self that night with his responses. When they asked any yes or no questions they heard appropriate replies, all intermixed with the occasional "Ass" and "Idiot", which is pretty typical of Paul and his attitude. It was while the investigators were at the Stage Area that they felt a cold gust of wind go passed them, which is really very strange on a night when the building was muggy and still.



In the Gribble House the investigators were hit by the overwhelming scent of perfume, which is common but hasn't happened in a few days for us. It was so overpowering that it lingered and filtered into the general part of the warehouse. It also seemed like one of the child spirits that they were speaking with was trying to play hide and seek with one of the mothers of the group.

Finally, Kelley took over as the lead investigator on Saturday- a night booked full of people! The building was super active and the whole evening was marked with the sounds of creepy whispers and breathy responses through the Spirit Box. It was almost like the spirits didn't have enough energy to communicate but were trying to come through regardless. One of the pairs who was in the building had been with us twice before and were happy to be back.




Kelley placed a metal folding chair in the Residual Area before the investigation began. When she was walking the investigators around the building showing them the hot spots, it sounded like someone sat down on the chair because it squeaked and creaked like a body was sitting down into it. This happened twice throughout the night and both times there was no one there.




One of the ladies investigating that night had a pair of jeans on that had rips in them and the strings of the rips were hanging down. At one point she mentioned that it felt like someone was pulling on the strings hard enough that she felt she was being pulled herself. First she asked if anyone was pulling on her and heard "I was". When she asked again the only reply she got was "What"? A few minutes later, another lady said she felt like someone was touching her legs and feet.

What a good week. If you have anything to share, please tag us with the #gribblehouse or @gribblehouse so we can see!

Investigation Update 7/10/2017

What a fantastic week we had! We got a lot of activity in the building and we'd love to share it with you- so here it is-

Kelley started the week on Monday on an evening that she described as "Willie" like. That's because a lot of the activity that happened was the sort of stuff that happens when Willie is the lead investigator- like when the REM Pod went off during the history portion of the night and kept going off throughout the course of the evening. This happens a lot for Willie and Kelley took notice of that.



One of the ladies investigating that night was a physic who was part of a paranormal group in New Jersey. She told Kelley that the little boy Gabe that we hear from frequently was a slave, which was interesting to hear. Her friend was also part of that paranormal group and the two of them ended up having a lot of activity swirling around them. When they were in the Slave Quarters they reported that they both felt like they were not only touched but that they were being held on to. In fact, one of the ladies felt like her necklace was being tugged at!



Many names were called in response to the question "Who are we speaking with tonight"? They heard David, Gabe, Paul, Matt, Mark, Mike, Jeff, Memorie, Carol, Amy, Logan, Wolfe, Patrick, and Mama. Very cool.

Willie then took over for the second two investigations of the week. On Tuesday night he was with a group of folks, several of whom had been on an investigation in the Gribble House just a few weeks prior with Willie as the lead. On this night, unlike with Kelley the night before, there was almost no REM Pod activity during the history portion, which is odd for when Willie investigates.



One of the things the investigators noticed on this night was the strange noises that were happening in the building. It seemed like there were feet dragging across the floor on the far side of the building throughout the course of the night although there was no one on that side of the warehouse. Whenever they would go to take a look at where the sound was coming from, they were never able to find the source.

Willie was the lead again on Wednesday night. On this evening he investigated with a family of five who were so excited to be in the building, although a little bit nervous. Unlike the night before, as soon as they entered the building the REM Pod started to flash and did throughout the entire night, even through the history portion when we show the Ghost Adventures clip. Wonderful!



Although we often tell guests not to try to communicated with passed loved ones because it can be painful, on this night one of the ladies investigating had just lost her best friend the week before. She asked if her friend was in the building and they heard "Anthony"- her friend called himself "Tony". When she tried to get confirmation that it was her friend she heard "F*ck babe" as the reply, which confirmed it for her. Her friend had been very fond of the "F" word and called her baby all the time.

Kelley then took the lead again on Friday night. This evening was so active that Kelley ended up capturing several EVP sessions on her phone and posted them on YouTube- stayed tuned for them to be posted later this week!


 

The activity at the Stage Area seemed very frantic, almost everything coming through was erratic and loud as if it was being yelled at them with urgency. They heard "Get out", "Go away", "Hush" "Nurse", "Doctor", and "Give up" all yelled at them while at the Stage Area.








Another strange thing that investigators noticed this night was while they were in the Slave Quarters. At several different moment during the night it was almost as if there was a cool breeze going through that area that was scented with the aroma of mothballs. This is very strange and not something that the investigators ever smell in the building.

Finally, the last investigation of the week was with Kaitlin at the helm. This night had a really strange vibe to it. It was almost as if the spirits were afraid to communicate with the investigators and that they were fleeing away from communication. This is very rare in the building, so much so that it's worthy of note. It wasn't until nearly the end of the night that some strong activity started to happen. Whenever the investigators would ask if the spirits wanted to talk to them the Raggedy Ann doll would start to flash, but at the same time when they would ask if they wanted to be left along, the Ghost Meter Pro would flash. Very strange.

A great week for us! If you have image to share please tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.

Investigation Update 7.9.2017

It was a great week- a wonderful holiday week for us! We hope you all enjoyed your mid-week 4th of July because we certainly did! Here's just a little bit of the tons of activity we got in the building this past seven days...

Kelley took over on the 4th of July itself with a couple who were so excited to investigate the Gribble House. The night before they had been in the Sorrel- Weed house and captured some really cool stuff with their Olympus and they were kind enough to share with Kelley the EVPs they had captured. They used their own equipment quite a bit, including their Steve Huff software in the building. Although the equipment was quiet they told Kelley it was because the spirits were trying to manipulate the device rather than it just not being active in the building.



Their main focus that night was to try to get some Straight EVPs using the Spirit Box, although both the Ovilus and the SB-7 were pretty active. One spirit who was particularly active was one who called himself Kevin. The investigators asked him to sing to them and Kevin actually did! The same voice they had been talking to started to sing through the Spirit Box. Amazing!

In addition to all the Spirit Box activity, they also were able to get quite a few names to come through in response to their questions "Who is here with us tonight?". They heard Kelley, Ann, Pete, Mike, Paul, Jim, Bob, Betty, Veronica, Carol, Edmond, Todd, and Jack.

Kaitlin was lead investigator on Thursday night with a pretty big group of folks on an evening when the most dramatic thing that almost every single investigator felt was distinct cold spots and chills in the rather warm building. It's not normal to feel so cold suddenly in a muggy hot building, but this happened all night long for each and every investigator. Crazy!



There were a few really strange moments in the building outside of the deep cold spots. Usually the electro magnetic field that is situated outside of the Slave Quarters near the outlet is fairly small, and you can automatically tell when you are walking into that Hot Spot that the activity is nothing more than the wall plug. However, on this night the EMF that was being produced by that spot was nearly double what it usually it, like something was making it stronger.



One of the groups investigating that night was unfortunately in town for a funeral. Strangely, the name of that family member who had passed kept coming through the Spirit Box all night long...

Kelley and Kaitlyn doubled up on Thursday night for two investigations. The first one started early because everyone was so excited to join in on the paranormal action that they showed up early and ready to go get 'em! It seemed like on this night that the child spirits were exceptionally active. One of the groups made contact with a little boy who called himself Gabe, and was making both the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF detector light up at the same time, like he was touching it with both hands.



Unlike the night before, rather than the distinct cold spots that the previous investigators experienced, one of the ladies investigating on Thursday night had one of her arms so hot that it was registering more than 10 degrees warmer than the rest of the room! Amazing and so hard to explain.


The same sort of strange activity happened when the investigators moved into the Gribble House area. One of the ladies was holding a Ghost Meter Pro and suddenly felt like someone was holding her arm- like she could even feel the fingers around her forearm. The device she was holding was going off like mad in the hand that felt like there was pressure around...

The second investigation of Friday night was great, as well. This time it was a group of ladies who were greeted almost immediately at the Stage Area by a male voice who told them that they "Looked nice". How kind of him!


Before this investigation began, Kelley was getting the rooms set up and arranged for the tour and she pulled back the curtain in the Slave Quarters and could have sworn that she saw the figure and face of a little boy with strawberry blonde hair staring back at her. She screamed and startled the investigators, which set the tone of the night. It felt like the building was ominous and sort of oppressive.



Kelley heard her entire first and last name come through the Spirit Box that night, something that hadn't happened to her before. It also seemed like when she was asking questions that she wasn't getting answers- in fact she was distinctly told to "Shush" at one point. Crazy!

Finally, Kelley was in charge on Saturday night with a group who had been collecting activity all over Savannah and had even gotten an EVP from a spirit who called himself Tom. When they were in the building they also heard the name Tom come through- the investigators believed it was the same man.



One of the investigators heard her own name come through the Spirit Box- Angela. But they also heard other names such as Angela, Jason, Paul, Dawn, Carried, Tom, and Paul several times. There also seemed to be some phrases that came through that were exceptionally relevant. They heard "Prescription in the bag" followed by "I'm old". The investigators also heard some really unsettling laughter...


Overall, the night was entirely creepy and unsettled. As the investigators looked around the building they saw plenty shadowy figures moving about...

A wonderful week indeed! If you have anything to share, please do! Tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
