Investigation Update 5.28.2017

Happy Memorial Day weekend! It was a super great week for us with some super great investigations! Check out some of the interesting activity we collected this week...

The first investigation of the week was with Willie on Monday night with a decently big group of folks who were really into the investigation that night- so much so that three of them brought actual real cameras to catch activity with!

On this night the REM Pod was by far the most active device. Even before Willie even showed the first history video the REM Pod was going off in spades. It felt like random activity, until Willie moved the device to the yellow railing and then again to the middle of the front gate. The device started to flash no matter where he moved the REM Pod.

In addition to the REM Pod being very active the Stage Area was full of EMF activity. The investigators had really good luck asking for names and then getting the names being called out from the Spirit Box to respond to their direct requests of touching the EMF Detectors. This worked with spirits who called themselves Tom, Nick, Tim, Steve, Hunter, and Victoria.

Kaitlyn took over as the lead investigator on Thursday night with a pair of folks who were pretty interested in what their night was going to entail. They knew all about the equipment they were going to use and knew all the Ghost Shows that are on TV these days.

On this night the investigators started in the Slave Quarters and the Spirit Box was acting really strange. Although the device was super active the sounds and noises coming through the Spirit Box were not words and phrases but rather deep voices and strange squeals. At one point it even sounded like the responses coming through were from someone under water- like they were drowning...

When they moved to the Gribble House area the Spirit Box continued to act strangely. It sounded like a woman and a child were having a conversation between them through the Spirit Box although it was very hard to hear what they were saying. They did hear a very enthusiastic "HI" come through at one point, and when the investigators asked who was so happy to see them they heard "Gracie" come through in the same voice. Unfortunately, they didn't hear from her again.

Friday night had Kelley as the lead investigator with a group of five who were extremely pumped up about their Gribble House investigation. They were into what was going on and had lots of questions for Kelley about the building and the activity inside.

Two of the investigators, Jay and Mary, heard their names called through the Spirit Box a few times- the first time it happened was almost as soon as the investigators walked into the building. There was one really strange voice that kept coming through and talking to them throughout the course of the night- a man who had a kind of deep voice. What was strange about him was the responses he had were almost hippy-ish. He would reply with saying things like "Allll right: and "Right on". At one point they asked what year it was and they heard that same voice reply "66".

So many names came through the Spirit Box that night, including Evan, Carrie, Amy, Ida, Annette, Eva, Jeff, Steve, Mike, Bob, Ken, Neil, Hank, Andy, Amanda, Amber, Alfred, and Berwick.

Finally, Ted was the lead investigator on Saturday night with a decent sized group that were excited to investigate and learn the history of the Gribble House. Everyone wanted to stay together that night and they got some really great activity.

When the investigators went into the Residual Area there was a lot of strange activity. One of the investigators felt something touch her shoulder while the K-II Meter next to her was flashing. The same thing happened a few minutes later with the Raggedy Ann doll. Each time Ted went to take a picture of the K-II Meter, it would flash. Very interesting...

In the Slave Quarters the investigators made contact with a spirit who kept saying the same phrase over and over. "I need"... "I need". Each time they heard the spirit start their unfinished phrase they would ask them what they need. They never were able to find out...

A wonderful week! If you have anything to share please do so with the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse!

Investigation Update 5.22.2017

Wow, what a week we just had! Savannah is getting super busy with spring and summer season coming in and this coming week is Memorial Day! Here is just a little bit of the amazing activity we encountered in the space this week.

Willie was the lead investigator on Sunday night with a pair of couples. Everyone was eager to start investigating on what turned out to be a pretty odd evening.

For the most part there seemed to be almost no activity in the building with the exception of the Ghost Box that was insistently spitting out names of spirits when asked. In fact, there were several occasions where the same name came through over and over again- three times. Willie had his own name called twice on two seperate occasions during the night. But the Spirit Boxes were quiet for the most part, refuding to answer any other questions than "What is your name".

Ted took over as the lead investigator on Tuesday night with a pair who were unsure of what to expect that night. They started their evening off at the Stage Area and did not have the most kind and welcoming conversation. They asked a few questions and at one point heard "Shit" come through. They asked "Who said Shit" and heard the reply "I did". When they asked if the spirits could prove they were real the only reply they got was "Laugh".

The investigators moved to the Gribble House area where they heard a confession to murder. "Did you commit the murders of the women here" they asked, to which they heard "Yes". They could never find out what had admitted, though.

In stepped Willie on Tuesday night to lead the investigation with a few pairs- one of the ladies had the maiden name of Gribble! After some research she came to find out that the part of her family named Gribble were from South Carolina. Very interesting.

While still in the front of the building Willie decided to turn on one of the Spirit Boxes and within seconds the device let out the name John, which was the name of one of the investigators. The personalized chatter didn't end there because a little while later in the Stage Area they heard the names Zeke and Pop come through- Zeke was the name of her grandfather...

Ted was the lead again on Wednesday night with a pretty big group, a party of three and a couple who were all so very excited to investigate. The couple in the building that night had just gotten married and were really into the paranormal, while the party of three were having their first investigation.

When getting to the Stage Area they asked "What kind of store did you have" but then heard "I didn't as the reply" so Paul wasn't answering any questions. They believed that until they heard a loud and clear "F*ck you" come through. They asked then "Do you know our names" and heard "Jared" which was one of the investigators names.

The nasty language continued in the Slave Quarters, but the most activity was happening with the Raggedy Ann doll. When the investigators placed her on the chair they heard the word "Ann" come through. Although they asked "Do you have anything to say" and heard the reply "No", the Raggedy Ann doll started to flash.

Kaitlyn was the lead investigator on Thursday night with a seasoned paranormal enthusiast couple. Between them they had been to more than twenty five different paranormal sites around the country and done almost a dozen investigations- and they were excited to be in the Gribble House!

The action was pretty good in the building that night, but it seemed like there was a TON of action happening in the Gribble House hot spot. Not only did Kaitlyn feel extremely drained as she entered that hot spot, but the Ghost Meter Pros were going off like mad. Although the pair of investigators were trying to make contact with any of the three ladies who had been murdered, the only voices that seemed to be coming through were male- and they couldn't understand them at all.

Just before leaving the Gribble House area one of the strangest moments of the night happened. Kaitlyn was getting ready to move towards the middle of the building to snap a few photos and she heard the distinct sound of rustling and swirling fabric right next to her, like a long skirt being moved.

Finally on Friday night Kelley was the lead investigator with a big group. On this night the building seemed very quiet again with Ghost Meter Pro and EMF activity but the building was eerily creepy in being quiet. Although there didn't seem to be a lot of physical action happening, the building was heavy and felt full of energy.

There were some pretty distinct voices in the building that night. Not only was there one voice they kept coming through with a New York accent, another one continued to call everyone "Sir" very politely. There were also so many names coming through, including Linda, Patrick, Carol, Blake, Jim, Paul, David, Thomas, Harrison, Steve, and others.

In the Gribble House are the investigators encountered another distinct spirit voice. This one had a French accent and said "Bonjour". But it felt like the strangest moments of the night happened when the building was almost silent and the heavy humidity in the building was cut by cool almost cold breezes going through- very creepy.

Investigation Update 5.14.2017

Happy Mother's Day! We had a full long week of investigations and we are super excited to share them all with you! We made new friends, caught up with old friends, and captured some fantastic activity. Here's what happened-

On Monday night Willie was our lead investigator with some new investigators and six time visitors the Powells! We always love having them in the building with us. Because they had been in the building so many times before, they started their investigation straight off the bat, taking with them the Ovilus and infrared light. The two of them got some great EVPs they recorded with their camcorder.

The other investigators had a good night, too. They had a lot of luck with EMF activity with the EMF detectors, including the Raggedy Ann doll, going off in several different locations in the building for them. At one point the Doll was sitting in a chair and started to flash. When they moved her to a different chair, it still continued to flash. 

On the following night Willie was the lead investigator again. On this evening, Willie noticed that the spirits were not exactly accommodating to him although they were pretty friendly to the other investigators. Whenever he would walk up to any group that was having some action on their devices, the devices would go silent immediately. When they would ask the spirits to come back and talk they would hear "No" come through over and over. Finally one of the investigators asked "If Willie leaves will you come back" and a different voice came through saying "Yes". 

It was a mixed pairing on this night, too, with one group being new to paranormal investigation and another pair who had been in the building once before. That pair brought up a lot of their own equipment and used what we have in the Gribble House to enhance their investigation. The Ghost Meter Pros were decently active, although there were times when the spirits did not want to cooperate. When they asked "Can you make the device light up" they heard a clear "No". 

The Powell's were back in the building again on Tuesday night with Ted as the lead investigator! They had some really interesting EVP activity right off the bat when they walked into the building and heard "Leave" come through from the Gribble House gate. Both Ted and Bridgett had their names called through the Spirit Box. "We came all the way from Atlanta to visit you" and they heard "North" as the reply. "We visited Kennesaw the other say" which was followed by "War".

Then they heard the name "Willie" come through. "Who is asking for Willie" they asked and they heard "Others" as the reply.

While the Powell's were in the Gribble House area they heard and felt some amazing things. There were distinct cold spots in this area that seemed to move around. Bridgett felt something touch her a few times, but what seemed the most strange was the fact she kept hearing what sounded like someone moving around in the middle of the building... 

Willie took over again on Wednesday night as the lead. On this night a family of four investigated with a pair. The family was fairly experienced and brought a bunch of their own equipment but were very excited to see the large amount of equipment that we have at the Gribble House. 

Throughout the night the investigators made contact with spirits who called themselves Steve, Paul, Nick, Emmit, and Veronica. They also had some really great luck with the EMF detectors but it took a little bit of coaxing. At first whenever they would ask for the EMF to light up they would hear "No"as the reply, although after a little bit the device would light up. Even through it took a little coaxing, the spirits didn't seem to want them to leave because they heard "Wait" come through as they walked away. 

Kaitlyn was our lead investigator on Thursday night that had a slow start. At first, not a whole bunch was happening but as they were in the Slave Quarters the Raggedy Ann doll started to flash. Right around that same time, it felt as if there was a cold draft permeating from the Raggedy Ann and making everyone around her felt chilled. 

When the investigators moved to the Stage Area there were a couple of funny lines that came through the Spirit Box. They asked "Do you have a message for us" and they heard "Yes, never gamble" as the reply. One of the investigators felt like she was being touched at the Stage Area and she asked Kaitlyn to measure the temperature around her. As Kaitlyn pulled out the Digital Thermometer she felt a cold breeze go around her legs. 

In the Residual Area the strangest moment by far of the night happened. The investigators were hearing faint "Help me"s coming through the Spirit Box, and as they were looking around the building they saw the figure of a man wearing a hat. Very strange!

Ted was our lead again on Friday night with a few different groups who were all really into the paranormal and were excited to investigate. 

On this night, the Ovilus was pretty active along with the Spirit Box. They heard several names and several words that came up both on the Ovilus screen and heard through the Spirit Box. This included the name "Nick" that they heard at the Stage Area. They then made really great contact with Nick who told them that he owned a candy store when he was alive. They then heard Nick say the word "Pretty" which was followed by an investigator's name- "Sandra". 

Another investigator named Sam heard their name called through the Spirit Box after they asked if the Ovilus could say curse words. Then there were some really unsettling words that came through- they heard Run, Leave, and Demon, followed by Trapped. 

Finally, Kelley was the lead investigator on Saturday night with a group of four. There were a few words and phrases that everyone heard that night including "Out", "Leave", "Get out", "Run", and "Turn around". But everyone did have some very individualized experiences. The investigators noticed that just about everyone were appropriately addressed as Mister, Misses, or Ma'am. Very cool!

Many names were heard through the Spirit Box, including Kimble, Reed, Brett, Brad, Rickey, Denny, Carol, Dee Dee, Nate, Mark, Tom, Owen, Uncle Tom, Ann, and Ethan. Many of these names came through as answers to questions, such as when one of the investigators asked "Who turned the light red" and they heard "Owen". Then they asked "Who is touching the doll" and they heard "Ann" as the reply. 

No matter what area of the building they were in the investigators heard from Soldiers who wanted to talk to Dee Dee quite a bit, who was one of the investigators. They also spoke about soldier things, including "The Draft" and they asked for "A nurse".
