Investigation Update 8.13.2017

A wonderful week! It truly was a fantastic week of investigating for us. Here is just a little taste of the activity we collected in the building-

Monday night had Ted as the lead investigator with a group of four- plus one! As he was getting ready to open up the building for the night and set everything up for the investigation, Ted got the distinct feeling that he was being watched. Unlike previous evenings that he had this sensation, it became very clear that Ted WAS being watched- by a HAWK! He went into the Slave Quarters, opened up the door, and out he flew up into the rafters! For the rest of the night, the hawk hung out in front of the bathroom doors and continues to watch (like a hawk) the investigators as they collected their activity.

We had two very different kinds of investigators that night in the building, one with limited paranormal experience and another pair who were very into ghost hunting and already knew what they were in for. Although they started at different levels, the night went swimmingly well for both pairs. The activity was great! They started out at the Stage Area where two of the investigators, who were French, were asking questions in French and receiving answers in English. While they were in the area the investigators kept hearing voices coming from the middle of the building- very odd.

The questions in French and answers in English continued when they moved into the Slave Quarters, but it seemed like the spirits were getting fed up with the investigators being in that hot spot- at least one of the did. Although they were getting some really good answers, one female voice kept coming through and asking them to stop. "Enough", they heard" and "Cease". Each time they came through, the words sounded firm and sincere.

Willie took over the next evening, Tuesday night, and there was no sign of the hawk this night! He must have made his way out the building the same way he came in.

Willie set up the REM Pod it its regular spot in front of the Gribble House, but unlike his normal night when the device seems to go off during his history portion, this time the REM Pod didn't start to flash until the investigators started to move into the Gribble House hot spot. This kind of activity, sporadic and only occasion, continued until the investigators moved into the Slave Quarters. Willie had stayed outside to watch the open space of the building and the REM Pod started to go off like mad! He called all the investigators out of the Slave Quarters so they could see. They gathered up the equipment and used it near the flashing REM Pod to see what they could capture. Many of the investigators ended up capturing orbs in their photos. Very cool!

Our last investigation of the week was with Kelley on Friday night. This was a super active night in the building with action starting as soon as they crossed over the threshold out of the Safe Room. They heard "Get out" and "Watch it, Idiot" come through the Spirit Box immediately in the warehouse and behind the replies were soft phrases and creepy whispers. The unwelcoming words and phrases continued to come through during the night including "Wait", "Enough", "Leave", "Get out", "Please stop", and "Angry".

Although all of the investigators heard the voices of children come through the Spirit Box throughout the course of the night, but one of the groups of young ladies seemed to have the most children surrounding them- all evening long. The replies and voices of children did not come through randomly for them, though- the voices only came through when the ladies who ask to speak to children in a fun and welcoming voice. One little boys' voice came through and they played with him for a little while with "Peek-A-Boo". They heard his voice come through after playing and he said "Happiness".

There were so many names that came through the night, several of which were the names of the investigators. Throughout the course of the night, when the investigators asked "Who is here with us" or "What is your name" they heard John, Jim, Anna, Ann, Maggie, Martha, Joe, Todd, Phillip, Lee, Laura, Alice, Ricky, Truman, James, Paul, and Martha.

The most eerie moment of the night happened to one of the ladies investigating. She was standing in the building by herself and she felt a presence coming up behind her. It felt like a fast moving body coming up right behind her, and she thought it was her husband because it had a familiar feeling to it. However, when she turned around, no one was there.

Overall, a fantastic week! We hope you had as great a week as we had- feel free to share anything you captured with us using the @gribblehouse or #gribblehouse tag!

Investigation Update 8.6.2017

Super great week! We had so much fun with our guest investigators we can't wait to share it with you. So, here it is:

Willie started our week off on Sunday as the lead investigator. On this night, one of the couples had activity popping even before they left the Safe Room at the front of the building! It was so active for them that the couple decided to stay in that room for a while to see what all they could capture. The couple ended up making contact with a spirit who told them his name was Dave, and that spirit really took to the Ghost Meter Pro, making it connect and then reconnect which was really cool. Willie decided to put an EMF Detector in the center of the room and Dave made it blink on cue. Awesome!

The other groups made their way out into the building to see what they could find. When the night was ending and the groups were making their way back to the Safe Room, one of the men saw what looked like a shadowy figuring moving about the building.

Ted was the lead investigator on Tuesday night with a family group- a mother, son, and daughter, who were all really excited about being in the building. They are really into the paranormal and watch all of the Ghost Shows. Most of all they were excited to get to use the large array of equipment we have to offer!

As soon as they walked through to the Stage Area they heard "Hello" come through the Ghost Box. They asked "Hi, what is your name" and on this night they heard from Dave again. One of the investigators decided to go towards the middle of the building to get the Raggedy Ann doll and through the Spirit Box they heard "Stop" followed by "Wait". Then, eerily, the Spirit Box called a name of one of the investigators- "Kate".

When the investigators moved to the Residual Area they asked "Can you touch my shoulder". Almost immediately one of the ladies felt her backpack tapped twice in a row. The crazy activity started again when one of the investigators asked "We have several doors for you to knock on, can you knock for us please", to which they heard "Yes" followed by three knocks from the Gribble House area. Crazy!

On Wednesday night, Kelley took over as the lead investigator on an evening when the star of the show was the blue Motion Sensor. She placed one of the devices on the floor facing towards the inside of the gated area. It flashed on and off all night long indicating that movement was happening in the Gribble House gated region. The REM Pod that was put there as well was very active all night long.

There was some really interesting activity with the Spirit Box that night. Many of the investigators' questions got answered with relevant responses. They asked "Is there anyone here", "Lisa". "What is your name", "Lilly". "What is your name", "The chef". "How are you", "Cold". "Do you know what year it is", "The 20s". "Where are you from", "Greenland". "Who is the President of the United States", "Lincoln". "Where are you from", "I'm home". Creepy.

Lots and lots of names called through the Spirit Box, too. They heard Nathan, Steven, Paul, Lucy, Lilly, Elliot, Jim, Olson, Gordon, Stewart, Mark, and Leanne.

Kaitlyn was the lead investigator with three ladies who were investigating the paranormal for the first time. They were very excited to be doing something new. The Stage Area had a lot of really strange activity going on, especially with the Raggedy Ann doll. It didn't seem like much was going on so Kaitlyn went to go take some pictures of the warehouse and see what she could capture. When she got back, the Raggedy Ann doll's hand were flashing like mad each time the investigators asked any questions.

When they moved to the Gribble House area the scent of floral perfume was out of control strong. The aroma was coming in waves, almost as if someone was walking passed them and their perfume followed them around the room. They made contact with a spirit who called himself Nicolai, and it seemed like the perfume scent would get stronger whenever he was speaking to them.

They decided to move to the Residual Area and it seemed like the spirit Nicolai was getting angrier with them- his responses to their questions were getting more and more hostile. While they were in the Gribble House area it felt as though the temperature was getting hotter and hotter and the energy was feeling darker and darker as the air felt heavier and heavier. That's when they decided to leave the area and get some air in the Residual Area.

On Friday night Ted took over again as the lead investigator. The night started for them at the Stage Area and they had some really great luck with the Spirit Box. They asked "Who is here" and heard "People" followed by their question "Why are you here". The response they heard was "Killed". The K-II Meter in the middle of the stage was flashing a constant green light during the time they were getting the great responses.

Just before the investigators moved into the Residual Area, Kelley asked them if they would like to stay in the Slave Quarters for a little while longer. They said no, but they heard "Whimps" come through the Spirit Box. When they moved to the Residual Area, the activity turned very strange. They asked "Is that you in the white dress" and they clearly heard a whispered "Yes". Just after all of them in the building heard the sound of a woman's scream echoing through the building, startling them all, followed by a cold breeze that they all felt. Very unsettling...

That same kind of strange activity continued in the Gribble House area. While the Raggedy Ann doll was flashing the investigators heard a loud slap come from the middle of the building.

Finally, Kelley was our lead investigator on Saturday night. Even before this investigation began, two of the folks on their way to the bathroom heard noises coming from the Residual Area and Kelley noticed that one of the feeds on the CCTV cameras was cycling through all the areas of the building. It was very creepy and unsettling to watch.

One of the things that the investigators mentioned was that the building had a really heavy feeling to it, and that many times they felt like they were being watched- a feeling that made most of them spooked.
