Another great week for us at the Gribble House! Here's just some of the evidence we collected this week...
Kelley was our lead investigator on the Sunday night of Mother's Day. The Doll, Spirit Box, and Ghost Meter Pro, but no K-II or REM Pod activity, which was sort of odd. Kelley took a lot of photos, but she didn't capture any orbs. Another investigator that night, though, captured tons of them! In one image, there seem to be dozens of little blue lights- sort of like fireflies. Another image she captured has a full apparition of a man with brown, curly hair, lamb-chop side burns, and a large nose. You could even see the bell bottoms he was wearing!
Quite a few names came through the Ghost Box that evening. They heard Ashley, Helen, Joey, Nate, Frances, Tom, Wilfred, Nanette, and Steve. They also heard a few phrases come through several times. They heard "Lost" come through the Spirit Box three times, and then "There's five" was heard multiple times in different hot spots of the building.
At the Stage Area, there was a female voice that kept making contact with them. They asked "Why are you here" and she replied "Freedom". This was followed by "The camp", and "My baby" in the same female voice.
Kelley took the lead again on Monday night. There seemed to be quite a few female and children voices coming through the Spirit Box that evening. The Gribble House hot spot was really quiet, but there was a lot of activity in the rest of the building.
At the Stage Area, two of the guests had their names called through the Ghost Box- Peggy and Adam. A child spirit made contact with them, and they managed to have a really good Question and Answer session with him. They asked him his name and the reply was "Andy". They asked him "Where are you", and the response they heard was "Underneath". While they were conducting the Q&A, another group investigating was asking "Do you like us being here?". The response they got through the Spirit Box was "Annoying noise".
On Tuesday night, Kait was our lead investigator. On this night, everyone started off in the Slave Quarters. There seemed to be a LOT of temperature fluctuations going on, along with a good bit of activity happening with the Raggedy Ann doll. When they moved into the Gribble House area, there was another drastic temperature drop just as soon as they passed over the threshold.
There were quite a few names coming through the Ghost Box that night, and a good number of them were directly related to those people who were investigating. Kait had her named called through the Ghost Box, as did one of the investigators, Emily. Through the night they heard the name Andrew come across a number of times, as well as Steve, Garrett, Carrie, Paul, William, and the name of one of the investigator's deceased brothers.
Paul was not very kind at the Stage Area. One woman in particular recieved the brunt of his foul language, repeatdly calling her a "B*tch". He did answer a few questions, though. They asked him what had happened to his store, and through the Ghost Box they heard "Burned down".
Kelley was our lead investigator once again on Wednesday night with a really great crew. There was good activity all over the building that night. One of the investigators, Morgan, had her named called through the Spirit Box several times, and even had her middle name, Stacia, called out. Really cool,
One female voice was very prevalent throughout the building and throughout the night. In quite a few of the hot spots, her voice came through the Spirit Box and said "They're coming". In the Gribble House area, when they asked how many spirits were with them, they heard "Seven", "Eight", and then "Ten". Then they asked "How many little boys are here", and the response they heard was "Three". One of the investigators said he was going to walk out of the Gribble House area to look around the building, and they heard "Go", followed by "Go back in" come through.
There were some strange movements going on in the building that night- and almost all of it happened in the Slave Quarters. One of the groups of investigators were using the Raggedy Ann doll, and they asked "Can you move the doll". Everything was motionless for a minute, and then she did actually move! A little bit later on, another male investigator went into the Slave Quarters to investigate on his own. Apparently while he was in there, the curtain moved from behind a folding metal chair to in front of it...
Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Thursday night. Although there was no EMF activity that night, and the investigators didn't have any luck trying to entice the spirits to use the flashlights, there was a TON of activity in the building.
They started out the evening in the Slave Quarters, and made contact with a child spirit pretty quickly. They asked "Who is with us tonight" and through the Spirit Box they heard a child's voice say "Here". That same child's voice came through a few times, but it was difficult to tell what he was saying. When they asked "Are you a girl or a boy", there didn't seem to be a response- that is, until about five minutes later when a loud and clear "BOY" was called through the Ghost Box. Kaitlyn decided to ask if the spirits would like to use the Ghost Meter Pro, blinking once for yes and twice for no. The device flashed once for yes, and then promptly shut off completely.
In the Residual Area, they had more activity with the Ghost Meter Pros, blinking once for yes and twice for no. The investigators thought they heard the name Carol, or Carolina called through the Ghost Box, so they asked "Who is Caroline". The response they got through the Ghost Box started out loud and strong, but as the sentence went on it got softer and softer- "The lady in white"...
When everyone moved into the Stage Area, one of the investigators heard his name come through the Spirit Box as soon as they walked up- really cool! Kaitlyn was letting the investigators work on their own for a little bit, and was watching the Closed Circuit televisions for any movement. While they were using the Ghost Box and Ghost Meter Pros behind her, she could see a huge figure walk across Camera Six on the screen.
Kait and Kaitlyn were our lead investigators on Friday night with three really great groups of investigators. The first group started out in the Gribble House area. Their activity started right away when trying to use the EMF detector. As they tried to use the devices, their speaker kept turning off! Kait even changed the batteries, but it didn't seem to help.
This group moved into the Slave Quarters and they heard from several spirits who made contact, but only fleetingly. One of those spirits was Charlie, who told them his name but nothing else. They also heard from a spirit who called himself Forrest. Forrest told him that he had something to tell them, but they never found out what.
The other group started their evening in the Slave Quarters. When they walked in and said "Hello", though the Ghost Box they heard "Hola" in response. They had a lot of different physical kinds of activity. There was a really drastic temperature drop- almost a full ten degrees! One of the women who investigated felt like she was being touched. One lady felt as though someone was putting pressure on her back while in the Slave Quarters. This pressure continued as they moved into the Gribble House and Stage areas.
There was some really good Spirit Box activity that matched up with their K-II Meters. While in the Slave Quarters area, they asked "Who is here?". The response they heard was "Slave", and "Light". "Did you go to the light" they asked . "No". One of the investigators mentioned that perhaps the spirits were protecting something or someone. They decided to ask "Why are you here?". The response they heard was "It's safe". Very interesting.
And finally, Kelley was our lead investigator on Saturday night. The Gribble House are seemed to be really quiet, but the other hot spots were very active. Two of the groups investigating had a really interesting moment while one group was at the Stage Area and the other group was in the Slave Quarters. The one group was looking at the images of the murderers at the Stage Area when the word "Walls" came through the Ghost Box. At the exact same time, the group in the Slave Quarters also had the word "Walls" come through their Ghost Box. How cool!
In the Slave Quarters, the Raggedy Ann doll was pretty active. She was flashing on and off, but not nonstop. But, there was a distinct cold area around the Doll. Using the Digital Thermometer, the investigators documented a cold spot right around her. One of the investigators sitting near her could feel what seemed like a cold hand touching her.
One of the ladies investigating, Dex, had her name called through the Ghost Box. She asked, "How can you know my name", and the response they got was "A race".
It was a really great week for us and everyone who came into the Gribble House. If you have any activity, images, or audio you'd like to share with us, go ahead! You can use the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
