Tuesday night had Kaitlyn and Kelley as our lead investigators. Both of the groups that investigated has some really great and unique experiences in the space. The group of six with us that evening were welcomed as they walked into the building. Through the Spirit Box they heard multiple "Hello"s coming through in different voices as soon as they entered. These guys had a lot of luck with the Ghost Meter Pro, with the device going off on command. One of the spirits they conversed with was Paul at the Stage Area, who told him that he was eighty five years old when he died.
The other group of four had the same voice come through the Spirit Box over and over. But more amazingly cool than that was the action that this group got with their flashlights. They placed the flashlights on the floor and used them as a Ghost Meter Pro, asking the spirits to make them flash for yes and no- and it worked! Amazing!
During that investigation, Kelley had some of her own experiences. Not only did she hear something moving around in the Slave Quarters while no one was in there, but while she was watching the Raggedy Ann doll with the infrared camera, she saw her move! Crazy.
Kelley was our lead investigator on Thursday night on an evening with a lot of Ghost Meter Pro and Spirit Box activity. Certain words were spoken several times through the Spirit Box, including "Flash" when people took a picture, and "Hide" a few times in the Gribble House area.
Near the Stage Area, the investigator Chase heard his name come through the Spirit Box. Just after that, they heard from Paul. They asked Paul "How long have you been here", "Thinking" was the reply. "Are we alone", they ask him. "The light" came the response.
When the investigators moved into the Residual Area, they heard from quite a few women and children. The Ovilus was very active, with the word "Soldiers" coming through over and over. One of the investigators asked "Are there any soldiers here that are hurt", to which they heard the reply "Died".
On Friday night, Ted took over the investigation as the lead. The group was split down the middle between those who do and do not watch ghost hunting shows like Ghost Adventures. They started their night at the Stage Area and had a fantastic conversation with a spirit who said his name was "Gene". They asked Gene "Where is Paul right now". Gene replied "Trapped". "Who is trapped?" "Paul". "Why is Paul trapped", to which they heard the reply "Speak now". "What are you looking at right now", they asked. "Yellow shirt". The guest who asked that question was wearing a yellow shirt...
In the Slave Quarters the investigators experienced a rather stark temperature drop. Using the Digital Thermometer they documented a drop that went down from 72 degrees to 65 degrees within a minute. Cool!
The Gribble House area is where the investigators had kind of a funny reply through the Spirit Box. When they walked in they heard "Yellow shirt" come through the Ghost Box again. The investigator asked "Is there something that you need" to which they heard the reply "Dinner".
Saturday night we had two fantastic investigations with Kelley and Kaitlyn again as the lead investigators. During the first tour of the night, two women were making their way back to the bathroom and were told to "GET OUT" before the official investigation even began!
In the Gribble House area the investigators heard the name "Gribble" come through the Ghost Box, so they decided to ask the spirits to knock over a box or to make a noise to let them know they were there. Although nothing moved in front of them, Kelley could hear movement in the building behind them. She said "It would help if you made a noise", and through the Ghost Box they heard "Kelley".
It sounded like two spirits were having a conversation between them in the Slave Quarters. Over the Spirit Box they heard one spirit say "Found it", followed by "What is it" in a different voice. This kind of conversation happened several times in the Slave Quarters.
The second investigation was just as good. The building had a decidedly creepy vibe to it. On more than one occasion the investigators, including Kaitlyn and Kelley, got goosebumps.
There were a few unsettling moments in the building as they settled into the hot spots. Through the Ghost Box they heard the distinct sound of a child yelling a blood-curdling scream, not once, but twice. It left all the investigators feeling very uncomfortable. When they got to the Stage Area, they noticed that the EMF Detector at the Stage was flashing like mad. They asked "Is there a child here", to which they heard "Yes". "We wont hurt you, could you please tell us your name", "Bart?"
During free time the investigators asked questions mostly about food. They asked them what kind of food they liked to eat to which they heard "Burgers", and "Pizza". When they asked them what kind of topping they liked on their pizza they got the response of "Meat". Pretty funny.
Over all, a great week for us! And of course, for our investigators. If you have anything to share with us, send it direct via firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse.
