Investigation Update 4.23.2017

What a really great week we just had in the Gribble House! So many good investigations to share with you, so here we go!

Sunday night had Willie as it's lead investigator. Even before the official investigation began while Willie was telling and showing the history of the building, the investigators noticed that there seemed to be a huge amount of orbs floating around the space. They could see them on the CCTV camera and in the photos that they were taking, which is always a cool thing.


On this night the Stage Area seemed to be the most active hot spot. The EMF activity was out of control with it going of with or without the investigators standing nearby. Even though they were never able to get a name out of the spirits they were conversing with, the conversation was pretty good. For the most part, the best luck they have with their questions were yes or no inquiries.


It was while the investigators were grouped in the Stage Area that they noticed something strange on the CCTV camera. It was in the Slave Quarters that they could see a bright white almost incandescent orb floating straight over the table. It was easy to see on the cameras and so bright that they the investigators walked into the Slave Quarters to see if they could actually visualize it. While they were standing in the space, the other investigators looking at the cameras noticed that the orb would stop moving, but as soon as they left the hot spot it would start moving again. Crazy.

Ted took over as lead investigator on Tuesday evening. He investigated with a couple from Pennsylvania who had done a ton of paranormal investigating all over the country before coming into the Gribble House. They came super prepared with their own equipment to use and were very excited.



The Slave Quarters had a really strange feeling to it. In fact, the man investigating that night with Ted felt so heavy that he had to leave the room. Everywhere else in the building didn't have a real affect on his person but when he entered the Slave Quarters he felt like he couldn't move around and was overcome with an uncomfortable heavy feeling. Ted said "I'm going to take a quick picture" and they heard through the Ghost Box a loud and clear "NO". They did get a silly response through the Spirit Box when they asked "What type of animal is in the chimney" and they heard "Penguin".




While in the Gribble House the investigators had two very strange moments. They could see what looked like two shadow figures moving around in the caged area. A few minutes later they heard a disembodied voice, that of a child, say something they couldn't understand. The voice definitely didn't come from the Spirit Box.

Wednesday night had Kelley as the lead investigator. She investigated that night with four women who came into the building as full believers who even had a picture to share with her. Earlier that day they had been at the beach and snapped a picture at dawn of an orb that was bright white with light emanating from it and looking like it had wings. Very compelling!



The building had a really creepy vibe to it on this night that was marked by chills and lots of strange EMF activity. At first the investigators heard a lot of "Get outs" and "Leaves" when they first entered, but those lessened as the night when on. In addition as they started the investigation they also only received "No" as their only responses through the Spirit Box. However, this also changed as the investigated more and the ladies started to get more and more direct answers.




Many of the replies they heard through the Spirit Box was very interesting and poignant. When they asked "How did you die" they heard "Arrow... pain". "Who did you fight with" they asked. "The English" came the reply. Then when they asked "Where should we go" the reply was "Church". In addition to the full and clear responses that they heard, in the background were some creepy but clear replies. They heard "They've been sick", "Help", "You're and angel" and "Three are dead". What may have affected the ladies investigating the most though was each time they heard "Mom" come through the Spirit Box. One of the ladies that night had lost her son, and so hearing "Mom" was quite special to her.

Ted was our lead investigator on Friday night with a group of nine who were just about as excited to investigate as those on the night prior. Some of them were so excited to come in that they prepped themselves to come in by watching episodes of Ghost Adventures.



The Stage Area had some really good action with the EMF Detector. They asked "Can you make the device turn red" and although they heard "Trying" the K-II Meter flashed to red several times on command. This activity continued in the Slave Quarters with the Raggedy Ann doll, which started flashing on command each time they asked. The investigators were even able to get the Raggedy Ann doll and the EMF Detector to sync up together and they started flashing at the same time.




The K-II Meter continued to flash while sitting in an empty chair when the investigators moved into the Residual Area. The investigators heard a loud knocking coming from behind the curtain and before they were even able to ask about it they heard "Knock" come through the Spirit Box. "Are you playing games with us" the investigators asked, to which they heard a sheepish "Shit". They decided to move the K-II Meter over to near the curtains and at this point the device started to flash wildly. Around this time, one of the investigators who was looking out into the middle of the warehouse could see a figure moving around. Crazy.

Finally, Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Saturday night with Kelley, too. Before the investigation began, Kelley and Kaitlyn had been talking about a former lead investigator and through the course of the night they heard her name being called through the Spirit Box.



By far one of the craziest things to happen this week was in the Slave Quarters with the Raggedy Ann doll that night. One of the investigators asked the spirit they were talking to if they could make the Doll move while she was sitting on one of the metal folding chairs. After they asked, Raggedy Ann fell backwards off the chair all while she was flashing like mad. Using the Digital Thermometer the investigators were able to document some fairly severe temperature drops around her, as well.



A similar thing happened later in the Gribble House area when one of the investigators set their phone up in an upright position on another folding chair. They asked "Knock the phone over if you have enough energy" and at the same time the Ghost Meter Pro flashed once for yes and their phone tipped over.

Over all, a really great week for us and our investigators! If you have anything to share with us, please tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse. See you next week!

Investigation Update 4.16.2017

Happy Easter to everyone! We had a really great week in the building, so without further ado, here is a little bit of what took place in the building.

Willie was our lead investigator on Monday night with a pair of ladies who were quite excited to be in the building and having a true paranormal experience. The mother of the pair was extremely well versed in the paranormal and the daughter was very much in tune with what was happening with the Spirit Box.

There was decent activity that night, but the most active piece of equipment was the Ghost Box. All of the questions that the ladies had to ask that night were answered promptly and intelligently- which is always a bonus!

Ted took over as the lead investigator on Wednesday night with a couple named Jake and Kristen. They were also very excited to be at the Gribble House and had a lot of really good activity swirling around them, including a lot of orbs in their photos around them. It didn't seem like the spirits liked to have their pictures taken, though, because on a few occasions Ted took a few photos and they all heard "Quit it" and "Leave" come through the Spirit Box.



When the investigators moved into the Stage Area they asked "Is somebody here" to which they heard "Yes". "What is your name" they asked. "Tod" was the reply. When they asked Tod "What is your favorite food", they heard the intelligent reply of "Lunch".


When it came time for those investigators to move into the Slave Quarters it sounded like someone slammed close the storage room door. When Ted walked over to investigate what was happening, he noticed that the curtain at the front of the building was wide open. He went back to show the investigators what had happened when three loud bangs came again from the storage area. So creepy!

Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Thursday evening with guests who were so excited to get started that they all arrived early! Some of the folks in the group that night were real pros and came with their own equipment, including video recorders and a MEL Meter. Very cool.



There were some really interesting moments at the Stage Area when the guests had moved into that area. The Ghost Meter Pros were going out of control, almost acting like they were on the fritz. The lights were flashing out of control and frizzing from one end of the color spectrum to the other. Just around this time the investigators started to feel like there was a cool breeze swirling around them and among them, which was really cool. Just before it was time to move to another area the most disturbing and dead voice come through the Spirit Box. They couldn't tell what it was trying to say but it left them all feeling uncomfortable.


One of the ladies investigating that night was a sensitive and could hear extraneous voices throughout the building and in different areas from where she was stationed. While in the Gribble House area, she said she could hear a voice coming from the Residual Area.

Again on Friday night, Ted took over as the lead investigator on another evening with super excited guests. One thing the investigators noticed that night was a lot of the verbiage coming through the Spirit Box wasn't exactly inviting. When they greeted the building by saying "Happy Easter", the reply they heard was "Get out". Although they were getting a lot of replies, most of the replies were dismissive, "Please tell us your name" they asked, to which they heard "I should".


When in the Gribble House Area, the investigators made contact with many of the names associated with the Gribble House murders. They heard both Carrie and Eliza in this area, but when they asked if they were scared they heard a derogatory "F*ck you" as the reply.


Then in the Residual Area, it almost sounded as if someone was drowning or suffocating by the words coming through the Spirit Box. They heard both "Help" and "Blue" come through back to back...

Our Saturday night was very busy for Kelley as the lead investigator with with really big tours! During the first the investigators got to experience a ton of EMF activity all over the building, with both the Ghost Meter Pro and the Raggedy Ann Doll flashing all over the place. In addition, they heard some words come through over and over all night, which included "Run" and "Hide", which made the investigators feel like a child wanted to play Hide and Seek, and the names Steve and Paul. Some of the investigators heard their names called- both Debbie and Robert, as well as Carol and Katie.



One of the most uncomfortable and disturbing conversations that has been recorded in the Gribble House took place in the Slave Quarters that night. One of the groups heard a man's voice say that he had "Raped" a woman while in that room, which was quickly followed by the words "Stuck" and "Escaped women". When they asked "How many women did you rape" they heard "Couple" come through the Spirit Box, followed by Female coming up on the Ovilus screen.



Kelley and the investigators both heard and saw the word Orange come up on the Ovilus screen and called through the Spirit Box. This was a first for Kelley- she had never heard or seen it in the building before.

The second investigation that night was just as good. Just like the first investigation, this tour saw a huge amount of EMF activity all over the building, as well as really good Raggedy Ann activity and an active Ovilus. The Ovilus even had several full phrases come up on the screen, including 15 Souls, Look Around, I'm Right Here, We're Stuck, Still Here, and We're Many.



It seemed like the male spirits in the building were trying to flirt with the women investigating that night. They heard "Sweets" and "Pretty Hot" come through a few times. But, they also heard some rather negative language come through, hearing "Asshole", and "Mean".




There was some really fantastic EMF activity at the Stage Area while the Raggedy Ann was flashing. When they asked "Who is making that light flash in the chair" they heard "Ann" come through as the reply. When they asked "Do you need help" they reply was "Of course not".

All in all, a fantastic week! If you have anything to share with us, please tag us with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse so we can see!

Investigation Update 4.9.2017

We are a full week into April now, and it's been the coolest April that we can remember for a while- it's been absolutely beautiful inside the building, and out! Here's some of what's been going on inside the Gribble House.

Kelley took the reins as lead investigator on Monday night with a decent sized group. One of the group ended up having some of the best flashlight activity that Kelley has seen in a long time- they had brought their own set of flashlights with them and ended up having flashlight action on cue! Most of that happened while they were near the Stage Area and had set up one of the flashlights n the Stage and another on the yellow railing. The long that this group investigated and communicated with the spirits they got better and better responses. These ladies have investigated all over the place, but they told Kelley that the Gribble House was by far the most active place they had investigated yet. Awesome!




Using the Spirit Box, the other set of investigators had some really great luck with asking some really pointed questions. They asked "What is your name" and heard "Kevin". Kevin was the name of one of their children, so they asked "How old is Kevin"? Not only did they hear "Three" come through but they also saw the Ghost Meter Pro flash three times. "Who is the president" they asked, and heard "Woodrow" as the reply. Then they asked "What do you think of Abraham Lincoln" and "Judge Woodrow" came through. "What year were you alive" and the reply was "1913". (Wilson was president from 1913-1924).



It did seem like the spirits were low on physical energy, though. Each time the investigators asked the spirits to make the devices flash, including the Ragged Ann doll, they would reply "Can't" or "Can't do it".

Ted look over as lead investigator on Wednesday night with a pair that were divided on their paranormal experience. Falk was new to the paranormal, but his girlfriend Abbey is a huge fan of anything involving the paranormal.



It seemed like on this night that spirits were pretty welcoming to them. While at the Stage Area they heard Abbey's name come through the Spirit Box. They immediately asked "Do you like women" and they heard the compliment "Pretty" come through. Then a bit later in the Slave Quarters they heard "Special" through the Spirit Box. "What's special" they asked in reply to which they heard "You are". Just after, a small little voice said "Hi", and the investigators could tell that it was a child.


However, it was in the Residual Area where they got some really cool activity. Falk heard his name called through the Spirit Box a few times, but when he asked them to say his name the only reply they got was "No". That was, until he turned on a lighter and they heard "Falk" again. They had a scary moment though, when they heard "Monsters" come through the Spirit Box and when they asked if the spirits were trying to scare him they admitted that they were.

Once again, the investigation was in the hands of lead investigator Kelley on Friday night. That evening was super active, even before the official investigation began. Kelley had a really strange moment in the Slave Quarters while she was opening up that put her on edge for the rest of the night. As she was putting the electronic candles out she heard her name being whispered three times. So creepy.




There was a really interesting dynamic in the building with the several teenagers who were investigating that night. It seemed as if they were communicating with other teenaged spirits that were in the building with them. When they asked for ages they heard "Fifteen" once, and both the investigators Morgan and Mason had their names called. Very cool!



In addition to the named Mason and Morgan, they also heard Phil, Paul, Bob, and Jim come through. The investigators didn't hear much from Paul through the night until almost the end of the night. For the most part, the investigators heard for a lot of women and children. But it seemed like the most interesting activity of the night was physical. All of the investigators experienced chills and just felt an overall strange and creepy vibe.

Last but most definitely not least, Ted was our lead investigator on Saturday night. On this evening, he was investigating with four people who all were a little wary about what was going to happen, but were super excited to be in the building!


There was a lot of back and forth with the Spirit Box that night. They got a lot of replies to their questions, even though the answers the investigators were getting were not exactly always that cooperative. That's the thing with paranormal investigations- you only get what the spirits are willing to give you! When they would ask for names, a lot of times they would either hear the same name over or over, or they would hear their owns names being replied.


At one point, the investigators got enough cooperation for some on cue K-II Meter activity. They asked the spirit they were communicating with, "Mike", to "Make the device change color", and it did right away. When they asked "Can you do it again", they heard the reply of "I can" at the same time that the device flashed. Awesome!

What a wonderful week for us and our investigators. If you have something to share, please tag us with the #gribblehouse or @gribblehouse. See you next week!
