Happy Father's Day to everyone from us here at the Gribble House! We had a really great week, and we can't wait to share the evidence with you. Here it is!
Ted was our lead investigator on Monday night with a really cool group of six folks. Everyone was ready for a great investigation, and left after collecting some amazing evidence.
The activity started as soon as they walked towards the Stage Area. As they walked over, through the Ghost Box they heard "Chelsea" come through, followed by "Chloe... Chloe...". This was odd because one of the investigators was named Chelsea, and Chloe is her best friend! How cool.
The investigators had some really good question and response sessions in the Slave Quarters. The investigators heard the word "Attack" come through. "Who do you want to attack", they asked. "Witches" was the response. "Do the birds annoy you", one of the investigators asked in reference to the birds that you can hear in the Slave Quarters. "A little", they heard. "My favorite color is purple. What is yours", they asked. "Yellow", followed by "Murder" were the responses.
Kelley was our lead investigator on Tuesday night with a bunch of folks, including some experienced investigators. All of the groups that night had some activity that was similar. They all heard "Talk", "Help", "Seven", and "Leave" come through for them. But, they also had some really great, individual responses.
One groups got the bad side of Paul while they were at the Stage Area. Not only was he cursing at them throughout their questioning, but he also seemed to want to hit one on of investigators wives. "Do you want to talk to my wife", he asked. "Please", Paul responded in a very eager tone. Another group investigating at the Stage Area had one deep, male voice that dominated the conversation. It even seemed like he was answering the questions directed towards other spirits, including children. The only time that someone else responded to question asked was when they asked the deep, male voice to make the REM Pod flash. A lady responded saying "He will".
The Slave Quarters was by far the most active area of the building that night. One of the investigators, Heather, felt like someone was pulling on her. One family group had their children with them, and they seemed to attract a lot of children's voice. One in particular that kept coming through was a young boy with a Southern drawl- all of his responses of "Yea" came through with two syllables. It was warm in the Slave Quarters, but through the Ghost Box they heard "We're cold", and "Freezing". Strange.
Kait had two great investigations on Friday night, and everyone had an amazing time. The first investigation started out in the Slave Quarters, and as they walked in, they could see that the Raggedy Ann doll was already blinking away. They asked "Who is making the Doll flash", and they heard "Jenny" come through. "How many spirits are here in the room with us". The response they heard was "Twelve", but then when one of the younger investigators named Grace asked "Who is there", the spirits were done talking. "Stop", came through.
Grace seemed to have a lot of activity around here. Not only did it seem like something was touching her legs at one point, but she also saw some orbs floating around in the building. Kait introduced Grace to the spirits at the Stage Area, and her name, "Grace", came through the Spirit Box. When they moved into the Gribble House area, they could smell the scent of floral perfume. The only odd thing about this is that only the women could smell it- none of the men could.
The girls continued to have a lot of activity happening exclusively to them. When they moved towards the Residual Area, one of the ladies felt suddenly very cold. There was some strong EMF activity there, and it seemed like whenever the EMF Detector would go off, the girls would feel like they were being touched...
The second investigation that night went very well, too. It seemed like names were being called all over the building during this tour. They heard Glenn, Jeremy, Ned, Louis, and JC.
Free time was the most active session of this investigation. One couple was in the Gribble House area and they were attempting to get a more physical response from the Spirits, rather than through the Spirit Box. They asked "Can you make a noise?". Just after they asked this, the REM Pod went off loudly.
The family group had headed into the Slave Quarters, and were getting some really great direct answers to their questions. They asked "Do you want the device on the table?". "Floor" came through as a response. "Can you make the light go off?", he then asked. But, instead of the EMF Detector flashing, through the Spirit Box they heard "Blink". The mother of the group said "Are there any moms in here?". The response they heard was "Family". Pretty cool.
Finally, Kelley was our lead investigator during two tours on Saturday night. During the first investigation, it seemed like the Spirit Box was a little bit quiet, but eventually got chattier and chattier.
In the Gribble House, there was some really strange and sarcastic laughter coming through the Spirit Box. It sounded like the laughing was mocking the investigators, and a few times they heard rude names being called at them, like "Moron". Two of the spirits were disagreeing about whether or not to talk with the investigators. A male voice continually told them to "Leave", where a female voice kept saying "Stay".
In both the Slave Quarters and at the Stage Area, the investigators realized that if they said the word "Light", it would be repeated through the Spirit Box- every single time. That's pretty unusual. Certain names kept coming up on the Ovilus, too. They read Tom, Jim, and Adam quite a few times on the screen. In the Slave Quarters, they heard some pretty good strings of conversation coming through the Spirit Box. The investigators asked the spirits if they could make the Raggedy Ann doll move, and they heard "Can't... can not". They also heard "We're here... don't leave... stay".
The second investigation went very well, too. One of the types of activity that the investigators noticed was the large number of children's voices coming through the Spirit Box. They asked "Are there any kids here", and they heard "There is" come through. "Ted, Ted", kept being called through the Spirit Box, as well, like the spirits were looking for Ted, another lead investigator.
In the Slave Quarters, the investigators must have angered Paul. He told them that he had been "Sleeping", and that he was "Mad" for being woken up. They heard him say "Talk, we're dead, asshole". Not very nice of him! That was followed up by "Prick", so obviously Paul was not happy to be spoken to.
There was some very interesting on-demand activity going on. At one point, the investigators asked if they could make the blue light on the REM Pod go off, and it happened right away!
What a really great week we had. We hope that everyone has a really great Father's Day! If you see any images of yourself, go ahead and tag them- or if you'd like, you can share your images and audio with us using the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
