Investigation Update 2.26.2017

We had a super busy but super fun week investigating in the Gribble House! We had a lot of investigations, and got to spend time with a lot of different people. So, here's a little bit of what we collected this week:

Willie was our lead investigator starting the week on Sunday with two big investigatons. It was a pretty strange night for activity. There was absolutely NO REM pod activity throughout the entire night- not even during the Ghost Adventures portion of the video, which is usually when Willie notices the most REM Pod activity. And, also unusually, the Slave Quarters was the least active hot spot. It was quite odd.

The Stage, though, was extremely active, as well as the EMF detector. While one group of investigators were watching the CCTV cameras and noticing that several of the orbs were zooming around the room and disappearing mid-flight, the other group was getting fantastic, on cue responses from the EMF detectors. Fantastic!

There was a very strange moment in the Gribble House area. Willie watched one of the investigators prop one of the Spirit Boxes on top of the speaker attached to it. A few minutes later, the investigator came rushing out of the hot spot. When Willie asked him what was wrong, he told him that "something" had knocked the Spirit Box off the speaker...

Willie was the lead investigator on Sunday night with a family of five who were super excited to investigate. They were in Savannah from Mexico and had a lot of questions about what might happen in the Gribble House. The activity was pretty awesome!

During the second investigation, the REM Pod was quiet again, but the EMF Detectors were just as active this night if not more than the night before. While the investigators were on the Stage, they asked the spirits if they could light up the device. Through the Spirit Box they heard "Back up" come through- so they did. As soon as they took a few steps back from the device, it started to flash.

When they moved into the Gribble House area, everyone smelled the floral perfume scent that sometimes lingers in that area- everyone except for Willie and the son of the group. For a bit of time in that hot spot, they were able to communicate with a spirit who told them that their name was "Maggie", until a male voice came through and said "Leave".

On Monday night, Ted took over as the lead. He also got to investigate with a family of four, all of whom are super big fans of the paranormal and were super excited to be in the Gribble House. This was not the first ghost tour they had done in Savannah, but by the end of the night, they admitted it was the kind of tour that proved that there was "Something" in the building.

In the Slave Quarters, the investigators could hear the sound of crying coming through the Ghost Box. They asked "Are you a girl" and "Girl" came through in a woman's voice. During this time, the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing like mad, and there were some extreme temperature fluctuations that they were able to document with the Digital Thermometer. The temperature went from 57 degrees, to 50 degrees, and then shot up to 60 degrees within moments.

The strangest moment, though, happened while most of the group was in the Gribble House area. Ted was leaning against the yellow rail, getting ready to take some pictures of the investigators. He was looking towards the Stage Area when he noticed a while shadowy figure walk out of the Equipment Room door, and go to the left. As he turned to let the investigators know he had just seen something strange, they all saw a flash of white light above the Equipment Room that lasted several seconds!

Willie took over again on Tuesday night with two different parties that all showed up ahead of schedule- they were so excited to get started! On this night, not a single person in the group was a skeptic, and they were pretty stoked to be in the building.

The whole building had a really heavy vibe to it on this night, but by far the heaviest feeling room was the Slave Quarters. While the investigators were in there, in two separate groups, every single one of them felt as if they had been touched, getting shivers or shakes.

Unlike the previous nights, the REM Pod was super active by the Gribble House area- so much so that some of the investigators were a bit nervous to enter the hot spot. While they were in there, the floral scent wafted through the area.

Thursday night had Kaitlyn as our lead investigator. The first thing that Kaitlyn noticed on this night was the same thing that Willie had noticed in the Slave Quarters the night before- the building felt heavy, dense, and ominous. Throughout the entire course of the evening, Kaitlyn felt an oppressive sense, along with hearing whispers, banging, knocking, and other strange and unaccounted for noises.

The building seemed to be full of spirits, and full of activity. This was one of the most active nights Kaitlyn had experienced for a while, and was almost having a hard time keeping up with everything that was going on. The night started in the Slave Quarters where they heard an immediate "Hello" come through as they entered the space. There were some frantic and strange phrases coming through the Spirit Box, such as "Let me out" and "Release me".

When they moved to the Stage Area, they were greeted right away again, this time hearing "Hey". Again on this night, many many of the investigators felt like they were being touched in the building and all over the area, not just in a certain hot spot. The Spirit Box was going off and making good communication, but underneath it all the investigators were hearing someone crying in the background.

Friday night had Kelley as the lead investigator with a pair of ladies who described themselves as being sensitive, and one lady even admitted to being a medium. The activity in the building was pretty great, with the most active device being the Raggedy Ann doll. Everywhere the investigators went, the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing and communicating for them. Along with the Raggedy Ann doll, the the REM Pod was active and was documenting temperature drops.

The Spirit Box seemed more quiet than usual, but there were some one word phrases that came through that seemed relevant to the conversation going on. They heard "Weed", "Pot", "Bud", "Aspirin", "Money" and "Supper".

More than anything else, the investigators noticed that a lot of the conversation going on had to do with being ill. Not only were the questions they asked about being sick get the most responses, but unprompted words about not being well came through. They heard "Help", "Sick", "Thirsty", and "Ill". They also heard phrases like "Help me", "We're Sick", "This hurts", "Medicine now" and "They can help".

Finally, Kelley and Ted were the lead investigators on Saturday night with a big group of folks who split up into three separate groups. All three of those groups had great Ghost Meter Pro and Spirit Box activity. Behind most of the Spirit Box answers and phrases were whispers, breaths, gasps, and sighs. By far, the most heard words of the night were "Leave", and "Hide"- two words that everyone heard several times.

Lots of names were also called through the Spirit Box. They heard Steve, Deputy, Paul, Michael, Jack, Ted, Kim, Morgan, Dustin, Mike, Nate, Sophie, Dave, Ford, Carl, Nigel, and many others. The name Kim was one of the investigators, and they decided to ask "How do you know Kim". The reply they heard was "Your wife".

Ted was a pretty popular topic of conversation on this night, too. They asked "Do you know Ted" and they heard "We know Ted." This was followed by the investigators asking "Do you not want to see Ted again after tonight", and they heard "Cute" as the reply.

What a great week! So much activity, and such a good time! If you have anything to share with us, tag us with the #gribblehouse or the @gribblehouse!
