three story stone house built in the 1700’s, currently being used
as a storage facility.
cutting grass in the yards around this building have reported seeing
a young girl on multiple occasions on the upper floors, looking out
the window and waving at them. The workers know this building to be
secure and, when checked, no one was in the house. On separate
occasions, when workers have gone into the home, they have had a very
uneasy feeling. They get the feeling that they are not alone and are
being watched. Through investigation by The PPA, clients hope to
determine if something paranormal is occurring in this home.

Abnormal severe battery drain was noted on
various equipment at the
start of the investigation. During set up, one of the laser grids,
which was placed in the center front room on the second floor, went
dead within five minutes. The batteries, which had been fully
charged just prior to the investigation, should have lasted
approximately four hours. Once the batteries were replaced, a second
laser, placed in the room just to the right of the first room, went
dead approximately five minutes after the first one. The batteries
in this laser also should have lasted approximately four hours. There
were no further incidents with the lasers. When Paul was
setting up the IR motion cameras, newly installed batteries were
completely dead and the device did not work. All batteries were
replaced with no further incidents. A flashlight that Paul had at
the command center was also completely dead, but had been working
fine prior to the investigation.

device captured the sound of music or singing. The
sound is faintly heard behind Lauren and Nicole speaking and during breaks in
their conversation. The sound was compared against other recording
equipment in the building. Lauren and Nicole were ruled out as the
possible voice when a recorder carried with them also faintly picked
up the singing while they were not talking. Outside contamination
was also ruled out and no origin could be found. The sound
starts at about 5 seconds into the first clip and 4 seconds into the
second filtered and amplified clip. Quality headphones are required to
hear the sound properly with the first clip.

very similar to the singing
recorded on VR2. Virginia and Kelly were present at the time but did
not hear the sound. The sound did not appear on any other recorders.
The sound starts at 4 seconds into the clip.
VR4- Digital Voice Recorder: Stationary in second
end bedroom to
device captured the sound of three distinct knocks when Paul had
asked that anyone present knock on the wall. Paul asks this three
times and demonstrates each time. Paul hears the first set of knocks
and the recorder captured the last two, which were not heard by Paul
and Mark at the time. When comparing just the knocks, on all three
occurrences, the three knocks sound the same. Additional recorders
and VR4 were checked further for similar knocks throughout the
recordings, but no additional knocks were found. The knocks appear
to be right on cue with Paul's questions and in response to his
request. Three knocks are heard each time as requested and
demonstrated. The knocks can be heard at 5 seconds, 30
and 43 seconds. A chirp sound is heard at 42 seconds
attributed to stomach noise.

walk-through of the home, barn and land included mainly impressions of
the past. What Virginia picked up were many names associated with the
property, including Mary, Margaret, Elizabeth, Sadie, Ann or Anna and
many male names, such as Edward or Edmund, Bond, William, Samuel,
Francis, John, Joseph, as well as Lacey, Custer, Shoemaker, etc...
felt that there were many layers of history attached to this home and
picked up that the families that lived there worked in Government, had
something to do with the Army, something to do with stagecoaches,
Tavern, secret meetings, some religious teaching in the home and
information regarding the underground railroad.
also received that there was some tie between a tavern and another
home, a home that was named "White". It was set around marshes.
Virginia walked through the house, a male spoke with her. His name was
Mr. Bond and he spoke about stagecoaches. When Virginia reached the
second floor, she was approached by a female named Mary, who roamed
around the first and second floors. When Virginia went up to the third
floor, she felt a girl who stayed around the wallpaper room and liked
to look out the window. This girl also had an M name. Virginia felt
there was also a little boy who stayed on the third floor. Virginia
felt physical pain in the head coming from a man and loss of a female
child who never came home. In the barn, Virginia felt the presence of a
horse and experienced a physical nudge from behind her back, followed
with a hot snort. Virginia also felt the presence of a lost slave still
there from years ago.
the investigation on this particular date, investigators started
noticing unusual events immediately while setting up
Several pieces of equipment had abnormal battery drain, to the point of
being non-functional. A flashlight, two laser grids and a
activated IR camera all went dead either prior to their use or within
minutes of being turned on. They all contained fully charged
batteries. This is common in areas where paranormal activity
reported. Investigators also had a few personal experiences,
as Kelly and Virginia both reporting feeling like they were nudged in
the back while in the barn area. Investigators were not able
find an alternative explanation for the employees seeing a girl waving
at them from upper floor windows on several occasions. Many
factors were considered and the event could not be recreated.
Investigators were able to document some unusual events, such as
receiving return knocks upon demand and a female voice singing, which
was captured by audio recorders, though not audible during the
a metaphysical perspective, based on the time Virginia spent in the
home, barn and on the land, she feels that there is a haunting
occurring at this location, as well as an abundance of residual energy
around the property. Virginia believes that the people
the home and grounds who are witnessing activity are picking up on this
residual energy and, at times, seeing or feeling active spirits, as
into consideration the credible witnesses to the activity, combined
with the metaphysical information and the information The PPA was able
to confirm through historical research, along with documented
activity as a result of the investigation, The PPA believes that there
is paranormal activity occurring at this location. Virginia
believes that she was able to help release the lost slave that was
still present on the property and feels that the remaining active
spirits want to be there and do not need help in any way.
Virginia feels that they may come and go and are not stuck at this
location. Virginia also feels that there are high levels of
residual activity present that plays over and over and is a part of the
current environment. The PPA found no signs of
harmful at this location and feels that any activity is because of a
tight connection with the home and the clients have nothing to fear.
