Investigation Update 4.24.2016

What a great week for us- again! It seems like every week is a good week for us. Here's some of what took place in the building.

Kelley was our lead investigator on Sunday night. The K-II and the REM Pod were both strangely quiet that night, with not one lick of action taking place with them. But, the Ghost Meter Pro and the Raggedy Ann Doll were both amazingly active, all over the building.

There seemed to be a lot of Spirit Box activity happening in the Slave Quarters. When it came time to leave that hot spot and moved towards the Stage Area, the investigators said their goodbyes. Through the Ghost Box they heard "Appreciate it", as a means of farewell. Kelley commented "There must be a nice guy in there", and as they made their way over to the Stage they heard the Spirit Box repeat that phrase- "Nice guy".

A few strange things happened while at the Stage Area. Not only did there seem to be a large number of children's voices coming through, but one lady felt like someone was pulling her hair almost constantly! A few names came through the Spirit Box, including Kurt, Jacob, Steven, Scott, and Michael. But, two guests also had their names come through- both Tim and Ashir.

The building had a very distinct creepy vibe to it on Monday night. All night long it sounded like someone was walking upstairs- there was a lot of creaking going on, even in places where that shouldn't be happening! Although the REM Pod had been quiet the night before, it definitely wasn't on Monday night. In a few different spots of the building, the REM Pod went off for a temperature drop- especially by the Gribble House gate. Everyone seemed to get goosebumps at the same time, too.

Kelley, who was our lead investigator that night, had her name come through three times in a row while at the Stage Area. When they asked for names, two female voices replied with Maggie, and then Peggy. Although it was just two female voices at first, one man who was investigating seemed to have one spirit who was drawn to him. The same male voice would come through each time he asked a question. Strange.

There were orbs flying around the building that night, and the investigators were able to capture a few of them in their photographs. The K-II Meter was pretty active, too. The investigators were able to get the device to flash up to the red on cue, while asking yes and no questions.

Ted took the lead on Tuesday night, and there was activity happening even before the official investigation began. As he was showing the investigators how the Ovilus works, and what it does, across the screen read "Killed", "Soldiers", and then "Green". Very interesting.

One word in particular kept coming through the Spirit Box while the investigators were at the Stage Area- "Bet". They asked "If you are not Paul or Steve, who are you?". They heard "Howard". Ted then asked "Why are you here?", to which they heard "Bet" for the first time. Our youngest investigator that night asked "Can you come over and touch my green light?". Once again they heard "Bet" come through. Thinking that perhaps the spirit was talking about gambling they asked 'What do you want to bet on". The response they got was very odd- "Come on- three dollars". So cool.

The investigators were getting a lot of responses, but sometimes what they were hearing wasn't very welcoming. They heard quite a few "Get out of here"s, "Leave"s, and even a few "Shut up"s. What's even more disturbing was the amount of swearing coming through the Ghost Box. F-words, slurs, and "Bitch" were heard several times.

Kait took the lead as investigator on Wednesday night. On that evening, the Slave Quarters was by far the most active are of the building. It seemed like the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF detectors were going out of control. One of the speakers kept turning on and off, and Kait couldn't seem to figure out why. Once she double checked and made sure that that batteries were good, the investigators thought that their speaker issues would be fixed. But then they heard from a spirit who called himself Doug. Doug chatted with them for a bit, and then said the word "Button". Promptly, the speaker shut off!

Everyone moved over the Stage Area, then, and had a great conversation with another spirit. The investigators were talking to one another about the game "Duck, Duck, Goose", and over the Spirit Box they heard "Duck". Kait asked "Do you want to play a game with us", and the response they heard was "I don't".

When the investigators moved over into the Gribble House area, they had an experience that Kait described as being probably the "creepiest thing" she's ever heard. They asked if there was anyone in that hot spot with them, and over the Spirit Box they heard a child's voice say "Hi", followed by very distinct giggling...

Kait was in the lead again on Thursday night. This night had its very own creepy moment from the second that Kait turned the Ghost Box on. Through the device they heard "Join us". Very creepy.

In the Slave Quarters, they heard from two spirits who told them their names were Freddie and Kurt. Between these two entities, it appeared as though they were making the Raggedy Ann doll flash. Another spirit, who called himself Richard, told the investigators that it was "Kurt" and "Freddie" who were making her go off.

Paul was really being quite rude at the Stage Area on Thursday night. As they walked into that hot spot, Paul called Kait a "Whore", and didn't talk much. That was, until he started saying the name "Molly". He said that name over and over, several times, but would not say who she was. When it came time to leave that area and move on, Paul added insult to injury and told them to "Piss off".

Ted was our lead investigator on Friday night. Everyone started at the Stage Area that night. When they asked who was with them in that hot spot, the response they heard through the Spirit Box was "Jim". One of the ladies investigating was holding a Ghost Meter Pro, so she asked the spirit to light up the device if their name was Jim- and it did! A few minutes later, after the investigators had moved on and started asking other questions, they heard a full name come through. This time they heard Jim Smith. Very interesting.

While watching the CCTV cameras near the Stage Area, the investigators noticed quite a few strange and unaccounted for movements. One of the ladies investigating saw a shadow walk across the warehouse on Channel 6, which is where the windows and Swamp Fan are located. Everyone was accounted for, so there was no way this could have been one of the folks investigating. "What is your name" she called out to the shadow. Through the Spirit Box they heard "Derek". Another investigator saw a super large orb soaring towards the Stage Area, and through the Spirit Box this time they heard a woman's voice say "Help". "Are there any women here" they asked. This was followed by the reply "I am here", in a woman's voice.

In the Gribble House area, there was another strange moment when the investigators heard country music coming from their phones, which was odd because none of them had music playing...

And finally, Saturday night! Kelly and Kaitlyn were our lead investigators through two big tours. During the first investigation, there was activity all over the building, and with almost every piece of equipment the girls brought out- the Spirit Box, the REM Pod, the Ghost Meter Pro, and the Raggedy Ann doll. Very cool.

There seemed to be a lot of physical evidence going on in the building, as well. The temperature was pretty warm inside the building, but everyone was experiences chills- and at the same time, even. Both the REM Pod and the Digital Thermometer were able to document some temperature drops, especially in the Gribble House area, and at the stairs near the Slave Quarters. While Kelley was showing everyone the video, she thought that she had tripped over someone's foot, but no one was standing near her.

One name in particular came through in a lot of the different hot spots- Zach. They heard his name quite a few times, but the most at the Stage Area. They asked Zach if he was in the war, to which he replied "I was". They also heard the names Alex, David, Dough, and Ray.

Two of the groups investigating seemed to have some spirits that were following them around. Spirits who called themselves Michael, Ben, Brian, and Billy all came through for two of the groups in almost every hot spot.

The second investigation on Saturday night was just as good. One of the groups, a party of six, were walking towards the Stage Area once the official investigation began. As they walked towards it, through the Spirit Box they heard a lot of "Hello"s coming through. Once everyone had settled in, and started asking questions they heard "Paul" come through three times in a row! "Paul, how old were you when you died?". Through the Ghost Box they heard "Eighty-five".

Another group who was investigating decided that they were going to try to get some responses through their flashlights- and it worked! Once these four put their flashlights on the ground, they asked the spirits to communicate with them by making the torches flash. The same voice kept coming through the Spirit Box as they did this- really cool.

During the free investigation time, the Ovilus screen came up with the name Veronica. Then the investigators noticed something strange. Whenever they would say the name Veronica, they noticed that the Ghost Meter Pros would light up. Pretty odd. All of the investigators came together during the free time to get some activity together and they had a really strange and sort of funny moment. One of the investigators asked about the woman who sometimes came through for them. They asked "Is the man keeping you from talking to us?". Through the Ghost Box they heard "Yes". One of the investigators then said "If you are a gentleman, then you will leave the lady alone." The response was chilling- "Make me".

What a good week for us, and for everyone who investigated! If you see an image of yourself, as always, go ahead and tag it! If you have an image or video you'd like to share with us, either send it direct or tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse. See you next week!

Investigation Update 4.17.2016

What a great week! We captured a lot of evidence with a lot of great investigators. Here's what happened:

Ted took the lead on Sunday night. There was a strange moment for everyone in the Gribble House area, just after Ted introduced himself. "Hello, my name is Ted. What is your name", he asked. Through the Spirit Box they heard "Joseph- play nice". Thinking that they were maybe talking about JC Hunter, Ted asked "Did JC Hunter commit the murder?" "DID IT" came through very loud, and clear.

At the Stage Area, the investigators tried to make contact with Paul. They asked "Can you sit in the chair, Paul" and the response they got was "I can't". "Did you hear them say 'I can't'", Ted asked them. Before the other investigators could reply, they heard "Yeah" come through the Ghost Box. Some then must have say in the chair, because the K-II Meter that was set up on it started the flicker.

Kelley was our lead investigator on Monday night, with a couple who didn't need much convincing about how haunted Savannah is! When they were at the Stage Area, the investigators asked how many spirits were in the hot spot with them. "Three". Then they asked how many child spirits and adult spirits there were. "Two" and "One" came through the Ghost Box.

There seemed to be quite a few female spirits making contact that night. They heard from a Patricia, and a Marge, as well as quite a few female voices that would not say their name. The investigators asked them if they were scared to be in the Gribble House, and they heard a few different voices say "Yes". "Why are you scared?" they asked them. "Boyfriend" came through. Just a few moments later they heard a very faint female voice say "I fell here".

Kelley rocked it again on Tuesday night with some great folks. Although the K-II Meter wasn't as active as usual, the amount of activity on the Ghost Meter Pro more than made up for it! The GM Pro was super active, and was going off on cue with questions.

One couple who investigated with us that night were pretty experienced- in fact, once their investigation at the Gribble was over, they planned on heading to the 17Hundred90 to keep going. While they were in the Slave Quarters, they made contact with a spirit who told them his name was Matt. When they asked him if he was a solider, the response they got through the Spirit Box was "Port". After they moved into the Gribble House area, they had some great luck with the Digital Thermometer. These two would ask the spirits to raise and lower the temperature as much as they could, and tried to document it with the Digital Thermometer- and it worked! Temperatures fluctuated on cue for them.

The other group who investigated that night had some strange phrases and noises come through their Spirit Box. While in the Slave Quarters, they heard a voice that sounded like it was shivering. "It's not cold", the voice said. There were quite a few whispers, and not all of them sounded pleasant. "Do you need anything" one of the investigators asked. "A ship" was the reply.

Kait was in charge of the investigation on Wednesday night. One of the groups heard from Steve in several areas of the building- but they couldn't be sure it was the same Steve. They first heard from him in the Slave Quarters, and were able to communicate for a little bit. When they moved into the Gribble House area, the name Steve came through again. This time, they asked if he had been with the group earlier. The response they got was "No, I wasn't".

Another group was greeted by a spirit who called himself Benjamin in the Residual Area, but when they asked if anyone else besides Benjamin wanted to speak with them in that hot spot they got two responses- "Yes" and "Be careful". This group was able to get temperatures to drop on cue, as well. Using the Digital Thermometer, and asking the spirits to fluctuate the temperature as much as they could, it would lower and rise. Very cool!

One strange moment came when everyone was in their free time. While snapping photos in the open space at the center of the building, one of the men investigating saw what he believed to be a bright red orb soaring through the space. Very strange.

Kaityln was our lead investigator on Thursday evening. Everyone that night started out in the Gribble House area. There wasn't much action on the Ghost Box, but the Ghost Meter Pro was going off pretty strong. The guests were asking yes and no questions and getting responses through the GM Pro- flashing once for yes and two for no. The investigators were also able to document a few temperature changes using the Digital Thermometer.

The Stage Area had some strange occurrences. Everyone was looking forward to talking with Paul, so when they got to that hot spot they immediately asked if he was there. Through the Spirit Box they heard "Yes" and the Ghost Meter Pro lit up. But as they spoke with him, it became clear that Paul wasn't in the mood. "Shit", he called out at one point through the Ghost Box, and told them to "Shut up" once or twice. The curtains, however, seemed to be a point of interest that night. Every time some one would touch the hanging curtains, the Ghost Meter Pro would go off!

In the Slave Quarters, the investigators caught the scent of what smelled sort of like wax, or crayons when they were talking to children. While they were communicating with the child spirits, it felt like the temperature around their feet was slowly dropping, which is quite strange. The oddest experience in that room, though, was through the Spirit Box. It sounded as if there was a woman breathing heavily through the device almost the entire time they were in there.

Kelley took over, once again, on Friday night. One of the pairs had investigated with us before, and the other pair were very excited to capture some Straight EVPs. It was a really good night for everyone.

While in the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll was fairly active, but strangely she only lit up really when they moved her behind the curtain. The first time the investigators moved her back there, through the Spirit Box they heard a loud and distinct "Ann". Pretty neat. The Ovilus and the Spirit Box was in pretty good sync while in the Slave Quarters, but they weren't just repeating the same words- they were reading and saying words and phrases that went along with one another. For example, one of the investigators asked if any of the spirits had been in the military. Through the Ghost Box they heard "Colonel", and on the Ovilus they read "Soldiers". Pretty cool!

There seemed to be quite a few orbs flying around the building that night, and the investigators were able to capture a good number of them in their photos.

Finally, we had a great Saturday night. Ted and Kaitlyn were our lead investigators with a super cool group of folks. One of the groups started their night in the Gribble House area, and everything seemed pretty quiet- that was until Kaitlyn brought the Raggedy Ann doll into that hot spot with them. As soon as she did, the EMF detector started going off, and the Spirit Box became very chatty. They heard a voice say the name Paul, followed by a very creepy and strange voice say "Open up". The group asked the spirits if they could touch the Doll and make her light up. Through the Ghost Box they heard "Doll" come through, just as she lit up and one of the investigators felt a cold breeze go past her.

Another group was at the Stage Area and their EMF detector was going up very hard. They asked how many people were with them in that area and the response they got was "Two". When they asked if they could tell them their names, they didn't get a response until they heard "Take a guess". Guessing didn't do them much good, though, because when they guessed Paul they didn't receive a response.

In the Residual Area, another group was having some really strange activity going on. Not only were these investigators able to get EMF activity on demand, but they had some extreme temperature drops. Using the Digital Thermometer, these folks documented temperature drops from 68 degrees all the way down to 48 degrees. Crazy! Their Spirit Box and EMF detector had some strange activity going on. There seemed to be some weird static coming through the Ghost Box, and whenever it did the EMF detector would go wild.

There was a pretty strange moment in the Slave Quarters with a flashlight. It was turned off, and they were holding it in their hand but suddenly it turned on. Once it was on, it flashed and strobed for about fifteen seconds and then it turned itself off. Crazy!

It was such a good week for us, and the weather was awesome. If you have any images that you would like to share, feel free to do so! Use the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse, and tag yourself in any image you see!
