The Abbey Monastery in Canon City, Colorado is hiding some dark secrets and once you enter the basement, you’ll soon understand why. As featured on FOX21 News and Only In Your State

Just how brave will you be?

Walk through the maze of dark corridors and feel the residual energy still lingering in this historic monastery. Investigate with us to uncover the secrets within these hallowed walls and try to communicate with persistent spirits who may still call The Abbey home.

Will we capture intelligent responses on EVPs, or will you feel as if you’re being followed, as previous guests have? Will you see apparitions of former monks wandering the halls? Or hear chanting emanating from the many chapels and echoing through the halls of The Abbey?

Colorado Ghost hunting Is This Paranormal

If you’re brave enough to explore the vast basement area, you may soon understand why some visitors have fled. A secret tunnel in the basement connecting the monastery to Ullathorne Hall was used to cross between buildings undetected… and it is one of the areas which has reports of a very dark and heavy presence.

The Abbey truly is haunted, which just leaves one question…Are you ready to undertake a lone vigil in the Gun Room?

In Canon City, CO, on over 200 acres of land, there stands an impressive, historic monastery now known as The Abbey – an event complex and winery that hosts events nearly every weekend. With Gothic towers, graceful arches and gorgeous stained-glass windows, it is a sight to behold. But perhaps there is much more to The Abbey than what guests normally see at a wedding, car show or class reunion.

Construction of the Abbey began in 1924, after Benedictine monks who traveled from Pennsylvania made their way to Breckenridge, Colorado for missionary work in 1886. Monks from other locales followed, and they eventually settled in Canon City in the early 1920s. Through the help of an intermediary, the 90 acres of land once known as Fruitmere Orchards was purchased for the Roman Catholic Church. At the time of the sale, the owner did not want to sell because the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan did not approve of such a transaction as they were opposed Catholics as well as any and all immigrants; which is why Simon Peter Smith, who along with seven priests and monks posing as his sons, made the purchase on behalf of the church.

Originally named Holy Cross, the Abbey was completed in 1925 and ended up costing three times the original estimate, for a total of $600,000.00, which was absorbed by other Benedictine Abbeys across the United States. The first abbot, Father Cyprian Bradley, was responsible for the creation of the boys’ school, but due to the Depression, the monastery encountered financial distress and Abbott Cyprian retired in 1933. Father Leonard Schwinn became the administrator and was able to overcome the Abbey’s financial woes. He was made abbot in 1937 and remained so for more than 26 years. Eventually the town grew up around the monastery and over time, many additions were made to the original Gothic Revival structure and other buildings were added to the campus, including a gymnasium, residence halls, classroom buildings, a field house and a dining hall.

There were three separate functions of the Abbey that were carried out by the monks: a boys’ school, Holy Cross College and Seminary, and Camp Holy Cross for boys aged 8 to 14. The boys’ preparatory high school was in operation from 1926 until 1985, beginning with just 35 students. By 1928, the monastery was housing 150 enrollees. Boys and young men from the area, and from all over the world, came to the Abbey School, and by 1972 there were about 250 students in attendance. However, in 1985, declining enrollment forced the closure of the school. The monastery remained open with approximately 20 elderly monks until it, too, closed in 2005 and the complex was sold in 2007.

Today, every Halloween, the Boy Scouts hold a haunted house in the basement of the Abbey, providing thrills and chills to those who like that kind of thing. But considering the complex history of the building of the monastery and the development of the schools, perhaps there are real ghosts who reside here, still taking care of the place they called home. In the decaying, shadow-filled halls of the monks’ living quarters, perhaps the some of the guardians can still be seen and heard? Come explore and experience this grand building and investigate with us where others have never been permitted and see what secrets we can uncover…

Hudson Sports Complex122 State School RoadWarwick, NY10990 Location Map

We have exclusive access to the #haunted former Mid Orange Correctional Facility In New York. We have access to over 7 buildings.

The Paranormal Activity that has been captured here consists of Disembodied voices, shadow figures and full-bodied apparitions!

Are you ready to explore this staggering, sprawling complex with us? Recently investigated by Jason Hawes and the Ghost Nation crew, you can now experience the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility for yourself and see what secrets you are able to uncover.

The employees of what is now known as the Hudson Sports Complex were getting a little freaked out. Hair was being pulled, apparitions were being spotted, voices were being heard and lights were turning on, seemingly on their own. Architects and contractors refused to work in the buildings. So, the Ghost Nation team was called in. After spending some time here, they came away with stories of incredible experiences.

Ghost hunting Is This Paranormal

Disembodied footsteps and voices, unexplained banging and vibrations, doors opening and closing, EVPs captured; this facility seems to be rife with paranormal activity. Maybe you will spot the apparition of a former inmate, wandering through the buildings. Perhaps you can communicate with one of the young men who suffered abuse when the property was a reform school. Maybe there are some prisoners who have never left and are waiting to tell you their side of the story.

You won’t know until you join us. The question is, will you dare to investigate the fourth-floor chapel – or even explore the seemingly endless rows of buildings? Book now — if you have what it takes!

Known today as the Hudson Sports Complex, the sprawling expanse of buildings and land has gone through several transitions since the early 1900s. According to records, the site was purchased by New York City in 1914, and an “inebriate farm” was developed to house people with addiction problems, making them work the land. Rumor has it that Dr. Charles Stokes conducted experiments on those residents and once claimed to find a “cure” for addiction. Unfortunately, those records have not been found and it is unclear what kind of “experimental treatment” was used, and eventually the farm was shut down.

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time. Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

By the mid-1970s, the complex became the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility, and remained so until it was closed by the state in 2011. Mid-Orange was an all-male, medium-security prison that held as many as 1,000 inmates in the late 1980s during the “war on drugs”, but the normal population was approximately 750. It was closed when the state decided to consolidate prisons due to declining numbers of the inmate population.

Its current incarnation began in 2014 when local developers and the Town of Warwick gained ownership of the property with the intention of building a corporate park and sporting facilities. By 2015, 36 acres were being used for several activities including baseball, soccer, field hockey, yoga, and summer camps. The current owners, soccer player Christian Fuchs and his wife Raluca, opened the Hudson Sports Complex in January 2019, and hope to bring new life to the campus with their focus on providing quality, professional athletic training for the community.

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

Saturday November 28th, 2020, 8:30PM - Sunday November 29th, 2020, 4:00AM

Friends of White Hill Mansion217 4th StFieldsboro, NJ08505 Location Map

White Hill Mansion is one of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed, captured and experienced here will leave you breathless.

This location has been featured on Travel Channel

A mansion filled with Secrets!

One of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey is a home that is nearly 300 years old. The White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, bordello, speakeasy, restaurant, and office building throughout the course of its existence. The spirits that still lurk in the shadows are eager to share three centuries worth of secrets and it doesn’t take much effort to get them to speak! As featured on Paranormal Lockdown, the haunting of White Hill Mansion is known as one of the most active locations in the Northeast!

Is This Paranormal Ghost hunting

Robert Field II inherited White Hill from his father in 1757. Robert was deeply involved in the Colonial Efforts leading up to the Revolutionary War and suddenly died under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the Delaware River in 1775. Mary, his wife, was left to run the property and raise three young children during the war. Her neighbors gladly sold her out as a rebel sympathizer leading the British to seize the property and use it as temporary quarters. The troops that occupied White Hill were the Hessian Army (the German troops hired by the British to assist in the war). One of the most common paranormal experiences is the German accented voice coming from the attic. Could it be one of the troops that made themselves at home during the Revolutionary War? Or perhaps its Heinrich Glenk who opened an upscale German restaurant with his wife at White Hill in 1923?

Many guests that visit White Hill talk about seeing a shadow figure that lurks around the basement. The figure creeps up next to people and then slinks back into the darkness. He has no respect for personal space. Others report disembodied voices, the sounds of children playing, footsteps up and down the stairs, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of a talkative woman who claims to be a former servant, a full-bodied apparition of a woman that many believe to be Mary Field watching sternly over the house, lights turning on and off of their own volition, objects being moved and hidden, a spirit that tugs on people’s clothing, a lighthearted prankster that enjoys toying with guests—the White Hill Mansion is a paranormal enthusiasts’ dream!

Over the centuries, White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, housed rum smugglers during prohibition, served as a bordello and speakeasy, a restaurant for over 50 years, an office building and now as a beacon of history full of secrets. During the restoration of White Hill, they conducted two archaeological digs that uncovered 30,000 artifacts leading to the speculation that the property itself was built on an ancient Native American settlement. With all of the history, it’s no wonder that White Hill is one of the most haunted houses in New Jersey.

The only question that remains—will you be brave enough to encounter the shadow man!?!?

Location History:

In 1722, Robert Field acquired White Hill and began construction of a home on the property. His son, aptly named Robert Field, inherited the property in 1757 where he lived with his wife and three small children before mysteriously drowning in the Delaware River on January 29, 1775. His wife, Mary, was left to run the 600 acres and raise their children during the tumultuous Revolutionary War.

Several of her neighbors were British sympathizers who jumped at the opportunity to curry favor with the Brits by reporting Mary as a colonialist. The rumors were supported by evidence of Captain Houston of the American Navy docking at White Hill and having dinner with Mary and her family. Of course, her support of the colonials led to the British Army seizing her home and searching the property for rebels in December of 1776. Captain Wrenden of the Hessian army (the German troops hired by the British during the Revolutionary War) decided to use White Hill as his temporary quarters and during his stay the Hessian Colonel Carl von Donop paid Mary a visit. Her hospitality, albeit forced upon her, helped to preserve White Hill throughout the duration of the war.

After the war, in 1779, Mary remarried Commodore Thomas Read who named White Hill his County Seat. The two lived happily together until his death at White Hill in 1788. Mary, widowed twice, remained in charge of the property until she signed it over to her son in 1797. Robert III’s ownership of the estate was short lived as he lost White Hill in 1804. His wife, Abigail nee Stockton, had a caring brother that wanted to preserve his family’s reputation. In doing so, he purchased White Hill and allowed Robert and Abigail to continue to live on the property.

Throughout the 19th century, White Hill had several owners. David Bruce, an inventor, created a typesetting machine in 1832 while living on the estate. Senator Isaac Field then purchased White Hill in 1847. Another inventor, Joseph Mayer, purchased the home in 1885 and developed several pottery techniques while living on the property. Several families lived, loved and died at White Hill but the 20th century would prove to attract even more people to the home.

In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk opened a German Restaurant at White Hill that catered to upscale clientele. They would remain for fifty years serving the people of the Borough of Fieldsboro before another family purchased the home. In 1991, the Stepan Company acquired White Hill but in 1999 they planned to demolish it. The Borough, in an effort to preserve history, bought White Hill and began the renovation process.

For well over 200 years, White Hill has been the home to doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs, Senators, and rum smugglers during the days of prohibition. A family home, a bordello, a speakeasy, a restaurant…the stories that White Hill Mansion can tell are secretly hiding within its walls. The only way to hear them is to visit White Hill and listen for yourself!

Wyeth-Tootle Mansion1100 Charles StSaint Joseph, MO64501 Location Map

Our Ghost Hunts at Wyeth Tootle Mansion in St. Joseph, Missouri satisfies the intriguing lure of one of the most haunted locations in St. Josephs.

This very foreboding haunted location maybe beautiful in the daylight, but as night draws in, it’s haunted inhabitants come out.

William Goetz, St Josephs Museum board president helped purchase this mansion, around 1946.

Some of the paranormal that has been captured are the full blown apparitions of two children playing in one of the bedrooms, others have captured EVP’s which relate back to Mrs Tootle.

Is Wyeth Tootle Mansion haunted by some of the former patients from Glore Psychiatric Museum?

With macabre devices and haunted objects on display, there is no doubt that the spirits are still lingering and just waiting to share their stories with you!

St. Joseph is known for an extensive collection of beautiful mansions built in the late 1800s, and the Wyeth Tootle Mansion at the corner of 11th and Charles Streets is a prime example. With three floors, a tower and more than 40 rooms, it stands today as one of the best examples of St. Joseph’s late 19th century wealth and opulence, featuring stunning woodwork, hand-painted ceilings and imported stained glass.

In 1879, William and Eliza Wyeth hired architect Edmond Eckel to design a mansion resembling the castles they had seen on the Rhine River as they were traveling in Germany. This 43-room Gothic style mansion combines an example of the homes of early prominent St. Joseph residents with exhibits on the history of St. Joseph.

The first floor of the Wyeth Tootle Mansion has been partially restored to its Victorian grandeur. Old photographs of each room help visitors visualize the interior as it was around 1900. Each room’s ceiling is impressively different, from the cherubs that float above the Louis XVI parlor to the dark rich colors that cover the Moorish room. Ornate parquet floors and walnut woodwork change from room to room.

William and Eliza Wyeth moved to St. Joseph in 1859, and William soon developed his small wholesale-retail business into the prosperous Wyeth Hardware and Manufacturing Company and Wyeth Saddle Factory. In 1879, the Wyeths moved into this mansion with a panoramic view of the city and the Missouri River. However, they only lived in the home for eight years.

In the spring of 1887, the Wyeths sold the home to Mrs. Katherine Tootle. Mrs. Tootle was the recent widow of Milton Tootle. Milton’s obituary identified him as “the builder of the prosperity of St. Joseph and the leader of its ‘Golden Age.’ His business interests included mercantile establishments, the Western Bank of Missouri, and the Tootle Opera House. At his death, he had amassed the largest fortune of any individual in the city. Mrs. Tootle continued with many of his business interests.

After purchasing the home, she hired the New York firm of Pottier and Stymus to redecorate the interior. The main hall featured a walnut paneled ceiling and an elaborately carved staircase. The parquet floors, in keeping with the style of the time, were almost entirely covered with area rugs and furniture. Two stained-glass windows were added on the stairway landings. One resembled a Renaissance-style painting, and the other is of beautifully cut, stained glass. The ceilings werehand painted on canvas by a European artist.

Katherine’s son, Milton Tootle Jr., was the next occupant of the house. He and his wife Lillian added a large porch to the south side and a family dining room on the southeast side. A 1932 newspaper article described Milton Tootle’s home: “The ceilings were painted in Europe, and the walls were lined with heavy draperies, nearly an inch thick, with elaborate handwork appliqués made of materials the manufacture of which has become a lost art. And charming objects of art on every side intrigue the imagination and aid in the creating of an esthetic atmosphere.”

The rooms on the first floor were the French Reception Room of black and gold woodwork, the Louis the XVI Sitting Room with angels painted on the ceiling, the Library, the formal Dining Room, the Moorish Room with its Middle Eastern decor, and the Early American Family Dining Room. At the rear of the first floor were the servants’ dining and food preparation room and a kitchen.

When Milton Tootle, Jr., died in 1946 the home became available for purchase. William Goetz, St. Joseph Museum board president, and the M. K. Goetz Brewing Company donated the money to purchase the building and the city matched the amount to adapt the private home into a public museum.

The #haunted Mid Orange Correctional and Former Reformatory is an absolute must for every ghost hunter.

Our overnight Ghost Hunts at this location have yielded some of the most amazing paranormal activity we have ever witnessed.

It’s daunting dark energy is foreboding in the dead of night and has left many of our guests speechless.

The mysterious secrets of Mid Orange will leave a lasting impression on anyone that dares to investigate it long enough.

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

The Baladerry Inn was built as a farmhouse in 1812 on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as part of the George Bushman farm. The picturesque countryside was an ideal location for agricultural growth but soon it would come to know the taste of blood. Ghost Adventures Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

The fateful battle that would become a strong determining factor of the Civil War took place in the small town and fields of Gettysburg from July 1st-July 3rd of 1863. General Robert E. Lee had crushed the Union forces at Chancellorsville and began to advance his Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania in the latter part of June of the same year. There he would clash with the Union Army of the Potomac led by General George G. Meade.

The bulk of both the Confederate and Union forces engaged in battle at the crossroads town of Gettysburg. The three days of fighting left heavy casualties on both sides. The Union Army lost 23,000 men while the Confederates lost upwards of 28,000. With the loss at Gettysburg, the Confederates lost the hope of foreign recognition of their cause and led General Lee to offer his resignation to President Jefferson Davis. The offer was declined but after the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Vicksburg, the Civil War was turned in the Union favor.

During these days of battle, the Baladerry Inn, like many other homes around the battlefields, served as a field hospital for wounded soldiers and civilians alike. The main hall was used to treat the soldiers where several amputations took place. You can imagine that with the lack of anesthesia and very little attention given to sterility, many soldiers met their demise. There was nothing but whiskey to dull the pain and infection ran rampant amongst them.

Today, there is still a blood stain forever etched into the hardwood planks of the Baladerry Inn. Forensic methods using luminol and UV lighting has revealed the marks left by the Civil War soldiers so many years ago.

Today the Baladerry Inn serves as bed and breakfast with 10 rooms between the main house and the carriage house. Many of the original architectural structures are still standing such as the brick fireplace that is the central figure in the spacious Great Room. Although it is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world, you should know that you rarely sleep alone.

There are many spirits that still linger around the Baladerry Inn. Those most often seen are the Confederate Soldiers that died in and around the property. Perhaps you will have the great fortune of meeting one of the Southern Gentlemen and hearing the tales of when cotton was high and the hopes of a nation died on a battlefield in a northern crossroads town.

Fairfield County Infirmary Ghost Hunt

Fairfield County Infirmary Ghost Hunt

Friday February 5th, 2021, 8:30PM - Saturday February 6th, 2021, 4:00AM

Fairfield County Infirmary1587 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130-1038, United StatesLancaster, OH43130-1038 Location Map

The haunted Fairfield County Infirmary is a haven for the paranormal. Our overnight Ghost Hunt at this location will definitely test your nerve.

The Fairfield Infirmary harbors some dark secrets, and once you venture off into the former morgue, you’ll soon understand why this location has the haunted reputation that it does.

The embedded residual energy still lingers in these very walls!

The Paranormal:

With a long history consisting of over 170 years of serving the less fortunate in the community, this formidable brick building may hold more than history in its walls.

Some argue that the spirits of residents past still roam the halls. From a ghost named “Willy” who is said to haunt the second and third floors, to an entity of a little girl named “Susie” who may be lonely and looking for a playmate only to vanish into thin air, former employees claim this building is full of paranormal activity.

Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and slamming doors, smelling lavender perfume, and witnessing objects move seemingly on their own.

Perhaps the spirit of Jane Householder, an elderly woman who was burned to death when her clothing caught on fire from a gas stove, will make herself known and want to share her story with you.

Or maybe the former superintendent accused of abusing the residents who worked the fields is still hanging around – believing he is still in charge.

Prior investigations of this facility have proven to be active and hair-raising with reports of uncomfortable and uneasy feelings in the basement, slamming of the cell door on the third floor, a 7-foot dark shadow figure dwelling in the attic, and EVPs have been captured throughout the property.

Equipment failure or malfunction and unexplained banging often occurs, rattling even the most experienced ghost hunter.

Join us for a night of exploration and investigation of the Fairfield County Infirmary – as well as the cemetery full of unmarked graves situated behind the building. Do you dare? Are you ready to engage in a lone vigil in the basement where the makeshift morgue held bodies of those who died during the winters? Or in the jail-like area used to contain “problem” residents with the barred door closing you in? What about Room 322 – notorious for its reports of sightings of apparitions and physical interactions between entities and the living who have the courage to visit? There’s only one way to find out if you have what it takes…


Location History:

The property on which the current imposing brick structure consisting of 35,000 feet sits served the Fairfield County community for over 170 years.

In 1828, township officers charged with overseeing the poor and unfortunate contracted the construction of a wooden building just north of Lancaster, Ohio. It was soon filled to capacity, acting as a place where the destitute, mentally ill, physically disabled, elderly, and orphaned could receive food, clothing, shelter and medical care.

By 1840, the originally wood structure was replaced by a large brick building. Additions were made to the facility in 1865, both to the main building as well as constructing a number of outbuildings used for storage, tenants, laundry and farming. The working farm was located across the street and many residents worked the land to provide food for themselves and others housed at the infirmary.

In 1917, natural gas lines were run to the building to provide heat and lighting. Water pipes were laid in 1926, but electricity was not installed until 1958. A cemetery which stands behind the building is where paupers and residents without family to claim their bodies lie – and many of the graves are unmarked.

According to records, the number of individuals residing at the poorhouse in 1903 was 82, and they were “admitted” for several different reasons, including mental and physical health conditions that could not be managed by family members. There were many residents who spent most of their lives at the infirmary and who died there as well.

While some died from old age or their medical conditions, a few met their fate a bit more suddenly and tragically. One such story involves Jane Householder, a 73-year-old resident whose clothing caught on fire when she opened a gas stove. While attendants working at the infirmary were able to smother the fire, Ms. Householder survived her burns for only a few hours.

Stories persist that a former superintendent was particularly cruel to the residents of the poorhouse, reportedly beating them as they worked in the fields of the farm.

These punishments were witnessed by others in the community and reported, according to an article published in 1851 in the Lancaster Gazette.

The good Samaritans of the area effectively brought an end to the superintendent’s brutality, and the life of those residing at the poorhouse improved once the abuse ceased.

In fact, it is said that county officials would occasionally visit and enjoy a meal with residents of the infirmary.

Members of the community would donate Christmas gifts, local musicians would play for the elderly, and ice cream socials were held – all to help improve the lives of those housed there.

Still, stories of suicide and violence persist, as life at the poorhouse was difficult – too many people with a variety of problems all living under one roof often proves to be disastrous.

The infirmary remained in operation until May 1985, when the final sixteen residents were moved to local nursing facilities or foster homes.

The facility was remodeled in 1986 and the county offices were moved there after safety measures were taken, including the installation of fire alarms, sprinklers and emergency lighting.

It was then renamed the Clarence E. Miller Building after the former congressman, and the county health department continued to operate in the building until 2013, even though the structure was in complete disrepair by 2011.

The building remains vacant today, welcoming only those brave enough to step through the doors and see if there may, in fact, still be some former residents still lingering there…

Exclusive Overnight Access to the most haunted areas.

Ghost Hunting Vigils.

Structured Vigils.

Ghost Hunt with experienced Ghost Hunting Team.

Use of our equipment which includes, trigger objects and EMF Meters.

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Your ghost hunt at the Mid-Orange Correctional Facility and Former Reformatory includes the following:

Exclusive Access to the most haunted areas of this location.

Psychic Medium Vigil* (if psychic present).

The Squirrel Cage Jail Ghost Hunt

Squirrel Cage Jail of Pottawattamie County, Iowa226 Pearl StCouncil Bluffs, IA51503 Location Map

The #haunted Squirrel Cage Jail has been featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures. The Squirrel Jail in Iowa is one of the most haunted jails. It was also home to the "Jake Bird" the evil serial killer who took the lives of 44 victims!

Are you ready to explore a unique piece of history and find out who may still dwell within the confines of this unusual lockup?

Constructed in 1885 and in operation as a jail until 1969, the Squirrel Cage Jail offers guests a chance to experience what life may have been like doing time (or working in) a “human-rotary” style jail. One of only three such jails of still in existence, this strange building design surely holds secrets from the past.

Ghost hunting Paranormal Activity

Not surprisingly, there are a number of reports of paranormal activity within the structure, some dating back to when the jail was still in operation. It is said a jailer from the 1950s named Bill Foster refused to use the fourth floor as his living quarters because of “strange goings-on up there,” which including footsteps when no one was up there and odd sensations when he went upstairs to investigate.

One former tour guide has claimed to have seen the spirit of J.M. Carter, the gentleman who supervised the building’s construction in 1885. He was reportedly the first resident of the fourth floor living quarters. Perhaps he has stuck around to keep an eye on things to this day.

Others have recounted seeing a full-bodied apparition, also on the top floor, who they believe may be another former jailer named Otto Gufath. Still another person stated she saw the ghost of what appeared to be a sad little girl dressed in gray, sitting inside a cell which was completely inaccessible at the time.

Over the years, visitors and employees alike have described a number of possible paranormal happenings, including feeling like they are being watched, having their clothes tugged on, hearing disembodied voices, doors opening and closing by themselves, seeing strange lights and hearing odd, unexplainable noises.

Spend some time with us and see if you can discover which spirits may still be lingering here, trying to communicate with the living – and what they might have to say about the conditions they endured at the Squirrel Cage Jail.

Location History:

In Council Bluffs, Iowa there stands a stately brick building erected in the late 1800s which houses a most remarkable lockup known as the Squirrel Cage Jail. One of only 18 of its kind built, this “human rotary’ jail is now only one of three still in existence, and the only one that stands three stories tall.

Constructed in 1885 under the supervision of J. M. Carter, the jail features 10 pie-shaped cells on each level, and each cell was meant to house between two – and some say up to six – prisoners at a time. This bizarre design was the brainchild of Indianapolis natives William H. Brown and Benjamin F. Haugh, and the intention was to “provide maximum security with minimum jailer attention,” – thus cutting down on the number of personnel needed to run the prison.

The jailer’s office, kitchen, trustee cells and women’s quarters were located in the front of the building on the first floor and living quarters for the jailer were on the fourth floor. The three levles of cells are placed on a central carousel or drum which was turned using a hand crank. The bars (or cage) are stationary and have only one opening on each floor. The cells were rotated using the hand crank until each one would line up with the cage opening so that prisoners could be accessed, but only one cell at a time.

Over time, the rotating carousel housing the cells became more difficult to turn and often became stuck, making it nearly impossible to get food or medical assistance to prisoners if needed. Inmates often suffered broken arms and legs when they would mistakenly (or deliberately) stick their limbs through the individual cell bars while the drum was being spun.

However, there are only four recorded deaths on the property during its more than 80-year run as a prison. One inmate died from and apparent heart attack. Another was found hanged in his cell. A third prisoner reportedly died when he fell three stories after trying to climb up the cage to carve his name in the ceiling. The fourth death was rumored to be that of an officer of the local police department who accidently shot himself during the confusion of the Farmer’s Holiday Association Strike in 1932 when 84 protesters were arrested and jailed.

The Squirrel Cage Jail was in operation until 1969, when it was deemed “unfit for human habitation.” In 1971, after the prison was shut down and its remaining prisoners moved to other facilities, it was obtained by the Council Bluffs Park Board. They were successful in getting the structure listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.The Historical Society of Pottawattamie County – who owns and operates the building today – headed the endeavor to protect the jail in 1977, and it is now a museum which offers a glimpse into the unique cultural and architectural history of Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Bobby Mackey's Music World44 Licking PikeWilder, KY Location Map

Reported to be one of America's Most Haunted locations in Kentucky. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed and captured here will send a shiver down your spine.

When the lights go out and you venture downstairs you will soon understand that this location has a dark, sinister past. Many paranormal teams and television programs have investigated this Honky Tonk and few have left without the firm belief that the basement holds the gateway to hell!

Is This Paranormal Only In Your State Ghost hunting #haunted

The harrowing history eludes to the blood of innocence soiling the earth creating an unholy presence that lurks in the shadows. The evidence captured, the paranormal occurrences witnessed and experiences of investigators tell a story of the twisted and dark past.A staircase near the well of the old slaughterhouse has been deemed "the stairs that lead to nowhere" by investigators and phantom footsteps are often heard by those who dare to venture into the basement.

Testimonies of a former caretaker that resided in the apartment upstairs speak of demonic possession. The incident was so harrowing that the Church intervened and performed an exorcism in the club!

Patron's of Bobby Mackey's have reported experiencing suffocating heat, flying trashcans and hearing a man chanting in Latin, "Die game, die game." (English translation: dying well/good)

Janet Mackey (Bobby's wife) claimed to have been overcome by the scent of roses in the basement (associated with the ghost of Johanna and her perfume), grabbed around the waist, picked up, thrown down and pushed down the stairs by force by something that resembled sketches of murderer Alonzo Walling, screaming, "Get out! Get out!" After this traumatic experience, she refused to set foot in the club.

This location is one that promises not to disappoint. From the land's association with Satanic Cultic practices to the murder and death that has tragically occurred time and again - the spirits are restless and ready to share their stories. The only question that remains - will you be brave enough to venture into the gateway to hell?

Much of the history of Bobby Mackey’s Music World is wrapped in legend and folklore but most who visit this Honky Tonk can attest to the strange happenings in this gateway to hell.

As it is told, the land once played host to a slaughterhouse around the 1850’s. More than half a century before Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle exposed the unsanitary and inhumane practices of such places – the carnage was simply dumped into a well in the basement. Many have looked at this act as unintentional but still very bloody animal sacrifice.

After the closing of the slaughterhouse in the 1890’s the legend takes a darker turn. The rumor that has the most legs is that a Satanic Cult occupied the land sacrificing more than just animals.

Probably the most horrifying account is of 22-year-old Pearl Bryan who was found murdered in 1896. Her headless body was found in a field near the land where the George Dobson Distillery now sat.

When Pearl discovered she was pregnant, her boyfriend Scott Jackson and his roommate Alonzo Walling attempted to abort the fetus on their own. After all, a student at the Ohio College of Dental Surgery would surely know how to perform the procedure, right? Wrong. As you can imagine, things did not go so well and Pearl died. They attempted to cover up their actions by decapitating her and abandoning her body. Many believe the only reason they were caught is because they didn’t remove her shoes.

During the 1920’s a new building was erected on the land. Prohibition was in full force and the people of Wilder, Kentucky had their own dark little speakeasy. As with most of these establishments, the end of prohibition did not bring an end to the mobsters that had taken advantage of an easy market.

In 1933, E.A. “Buck” Brady purchased the club and renamed it “Primrose.” His casino’s success was noticed by the mob of Cincinnati who tried to muscle their way into his establishment. Brady refused to be intimidated, pulling a gun on Albert “Red” Masterson. Soon after he was charged with attempted murder and left his business in 1946.

The Cleveland Syndicate reopened the location as a nightclub in the 1950’s called the “Latin Quarter.” His daughter, Johanna is rumored to have fallen in love with and become pregnant by one of the nightclub singers, Robert Randall. The young lovers had intended to run off together but her father refused to allow the romance to happen and had the young man killed. Johanna, mourning her lovers’ death, poisoned her father and then took her own life in the basement.

The nightclub was closed in the late 70’s after several fatal shootings. But later the same year, Bobby Mackey, a young up and coming country singer, bought the building and so began the legendary journey of Bobby Mackey’s Music World.

Gooding University Inn and Resort301 University Ave EGooding, ID83330 Location Map

Idaho Tuberculosis Hospital Ghost Hunt. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures and Only In Your State

This #haunted location is well known across the state of Idaho, the many rumors of its hauntings are correct! The Paranormal Activity that has been captured and witnessed here will make you question if you really do want to sleep here!

Sleepover and non sleepover tickets available.


Some of the paranormal experienced here, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions, doors banging, knocks, whistles and items being removed. The sense of never being alone is one of the most reported paranormal phenomena. Where ever you venture off too, you are never alone! Are you brave enough to set foot in this haunted hospital?

It’s one thing to visit a “haunted” location by day but to actually spend the night in one is another story. Today, the Gooding University Inn operates as a quaint little resort in southern Idaho. The century-old structure is bursting with history, but it’s also considered one of the region’s most haunted destinations. Newly renovated and welcoming visitors with open arms, the structure doesn’t seem very haunting. However, you never know what you might come across after a night spent in this ex-hospital.

Located in the middle of vast swaths of farmland is the Gooding University Inn and Resort. It may not look like much of a resort from the outside, but it welcomes visitors all year long who are looking for a retreat in southern Idaho. However, this building also contains a creepy history that has some people saying it's haunted...

The structure was built in 1917 when it was first established as Gooding College. At the time, Gooding College was the only place of higher education in Idaho in between Caldwell and Pocatello. However, the school shut down in 1938.

The structure opened back up in the 1940s when it was converted into a tuberculosis hospital. It was considered one of the most advanced hospitals to specialize in TB in the entire country during its time but it closed down officially in 1976.

After remaining empty for many decades, the structure opened back up in 2004. This time, it was known as "The Get Inn Bed and Breakfast". This unique B&B capitalized on its haunted reputation and welcomed paranormal investigators to spend the night. Numerous ghost hunting groups have tried their hand at exploring the ex-hospital for any sort of ghostly activity.

In fact, investigators concluded that the building is indeed a hot spot for paranormal activity. Witnesses have reported seeing apparitions of an old man in a white coat along with a woman with a young girl. Mysterious whispers and footsteps down empty hallways are also a common unexplained occurrence. There's no doubt that this building saw a lot of pain during its time as a hospital, and it seems that some patients have never really left it.

Colorado Prison Museum Ghost Hunt

Museum of Colorado PrisonsCanon City, CO Location Map

Our Ghost Hunts at the Museum of Colorado Prisons is not for the faint of heart.

This location is haunted by the inmates whose artifacts have been placed on display, as well as by the women who had the unfortunate opportunity to reside within the cells of its building.

Each and everyone one of the spirits is waiting patiently for guests to hear the painstaking stories of an imprisoned life.

Known as one of the most haunted locations in Colorado, paranormal investigators from all around the country and world have flocked to Cañon City to seek out evidence and experiences of inmates who have crossed beyond the veil.

History:

In the 1980s, a group of Fremont County residents envisioned the preservation of the history of the Colorado Prison System in order to educate the public, memorialize the evolution in prison system and deter criminal activity. With the approval of the Colorado State Legislature on April 24, 1986, the vision became a reality with the birth of The Museum of Colorado Prisons.

The uniqueness of the museum lies not only in its attention to detail in cataloguing artifacts of over a century worth of criminal activity but also in the building itself. In 1935, the facility was constructed as the Women’s Prison Building which housed the female prison population until the late 1970s.

Although the living women are no longer residing on the premises, there are inmates just a stone throw away. The building shares a wall and armed towers with a prison that has been active since 1871. One can imagine that the residual energy of former inmates coupled with the vibe of the current prisoners contributes to the stories and evidence of paranormal activity on the property.

The artifacts displayed by the Museum of Colorado Prisons also bring a residual and eerie feeling to the building. They boast exhibits that span over 140 years of history of the prison system. The early territorial prison days leading up to modernized displays, each exhibit entertains and educates! The cell house itself spans two stories. The upper level has 30 inmate cells and office space while the lower level has the dining room, the trustee sleep area, original kitchen, isolation cells, and laundry room.

On the top floor, guests can move from cell to cell following the progression of the phases of life behind bars. These exhibits include displays such as the office furniture of former Warden Roy Best, documentation and information about the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947. They also feature infamous inmates like Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons is a wealth of information, displays and exhibits that document punishments, crimes and the daily lives of both inmates and guards within the Colorado Prisons for over a century.

Paranormal:

The Museum of Colorado Prisons is not only haunted by the inmates whose artifacts have been placed on display but also by the women who had the unfortunate opportunity to reside within the cells of its building. Each and everyone one of the spirits is waiting patiently for guests to hear the painstaking stories of an imprisoned life. Known as one of the most haunted locations in Colorado, paranormal investigators from all around the country and world have flocked to Cañon City to seek out evidence and experiences of inmates who have crossed beyond the veil.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons opened in June of 1988 after devoted and concerned Fremont County residents realized their vision of documenting over 140 years of prison life in the state of Colorado. Among the haunted exhibits and displays are that such as the old office furniture used by former Warden Roy Best, documentation the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947, and items belonging to both Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

With over a century of trapped souls and haunted objects on display throughout the building, it’s understandable that the paranormal community is fascinated with the Museum of Colorado Prisons. Orbs floating, screams that shatter the silence, soft and loud sobs that tear at your heart, the smell of tobacco wafting through the corridors, inexplicable cold spots, shadow figures lurking within the cells, disembodied female voices harassing male guests, bone-chilling EVPs (electronic voice phenomena,) full-bodied apparitions, the appearance of a trickster spirit, objects moving of their own volition, lights flashing on and off, cell doors slamming shut…the imprint made by the artifacts and former inmates leaves mounds of evidence and experiences for the living to relate to and be terrified of the formerly imprisoned!

The only question that truly remains is…will you be brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in Cell 19 that is said to be haunted by a female prisoner that died inside? She may have more than simply a message from the other side waiting for you!

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

Friday March 12th, 2021, 8:30PM - Saturday March 13th, 2021, 4:00AM

Friends of White Hill Mansion217 4th StFieldsboro, NJ08505 Location Map

White Hill Mansion is one of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed, captured and experienced here will leave you breathless.

A mansion filled with Secrets!

One of the most haunted locations in New Jersey is a home that is nearly 300 years old. The White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, bordello, speakeasy, restaurant, and office building throughout the course of its existence. The spirits that still lurk in the shadows are eager to share three centuries worth of secrets and it doesn’t take much effort to get them to speak! As featured on Paranormal Lockdown, the haunting of White Hill Mansion is known as one of the most active locations in the Northeast!


Robert Field II inherited White Hill from his father in 1757. Robert was deeply involved in the Colonial Efforts leading up to the Revolutionary War and suddenly died under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the Delaware River in 1775. Mary, his wife, was left to run the property and raise three young children during the war. Her neighbors gladly sold her out as a rebel sympathizer leading the British to seize the property and use it as temporary quarters. The troops that occupied White Hill were the Hessian Army (the German troops hired by the British to assist in the war). One of the most common paranormal experiences is the German accented voice coming from the attic. Could it be one of the troops that made themselves at home during the Revolutionary War? Or perhaps its Heinrich Glenk who opened an upscale German restaurant with his wife at White Hill in 1923?

Many guests that visit White Hill talk about seeing a shadow figure that lurks around the basement. The figure creeps up next to people and then slinks back into the darkness. He has no respect for personal space. Others report disembodied voices, the sounds of children playing, footsteps up and down the stairs, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of a talkative woman who claims to be a former servant, a full-bodied apparition of a woman that many believe to be Mary Field watching sternly over the house, lights turning on and off of their own volition, objects being moved and hidden, a spirit that tugs on people’s clothing, a lighthearted prankster that enjoys toying with guests—the White Hill Mansion is a paranormal enthusiasts’ dream!

Over the centuries, White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, housed rum smugglers during prohibition, served as a bordello and speakeasy, a restaurant for over 50 years, an office building and now as a beacon of history full of secrets. During the restoration of White Hill, they conducted two archaeological digs that uncovered 30,000 artifacts leading to the speculation that the property itself was built on an ancient Native American settlement. With all of the history, it’s no wonder that White Hill is one of the most haunted houses in New Jersey.

The only question that remains—will you be brave enough to encounter the shadow man!?!?

Location History:

In 1722, Robert Field acquired White Hill and began construction of a home on the property. His son, aptly named Robert Field, inherited the property in 1757 where he lived with his wife and three small children before mysteriously drowning in the Delaware River on January 29, 1775. His wife, Mary, was left to run the 600 acres and raise their children during the tumultuous Revolutionary War.

Several of her neighbors were British sympathizers who jumped at the opportunity to curry favor with the Brits by reporting Mary as a colonialist. The rumors were supported by evidence of Captain Houston of the American Navy docking at White Hill and having dinner with Mary and her family. Of course, her support of the colonials led to the British Army seizing her home and searching the property for rebels in December of 1776. Captain Wrenden of the Hessian army (the German troops hired by the British during the Revolutionary War) decided to use White Hill as his temporary quarters and during his stay the Hessian Colonel Carl von Donop paid Mary a visit. Her hospitality, albeit forced upon her, helped to preserve White Hill throughout the duration of the war.

After the war, in 1779, Mary remarried Commodore Thomas Read who named White Hill his County Seat. The two lived happily together until his death at White Hill in 1788. Mary, widowed twice, remained in charge of the property until she signed it over to her son in 1797. Robert III’s ownership of the estate was short lived as he lost White Hill in 1804. His wife, Abigail nee Stockton, had a caring brother that wanted to preserve his family’s reputation. In doing so, he purchased White Hill and allowed Robert and Abigail to continue to live on the property.

Throughout the 19th century, White Hill had several owners. David Bruce, an inventor, created a typesetting machine in 1832 while living on the estate. Senator Isaac Field then purchased White Hill in 1847. Another inventor, Joseph Mayer, purchased the home in 1885 and developed several pottery techniques while living on the property. Several families lived, loved and died at White Hill but the 20th century would prove to attract even more people to the home.

In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk opened a German Restaurant at White Hill that catered to upscale clientele. They would remain for fifty years serving the people of the Borough of Fieldsboro before another family purchased the home. In 1991, the Stepan Company acquired White Hill but in 1999 they planned to demolish it. The Borough, in an effort to preserve history, bought White Hill and began the renovation process.

For well over 200 years, White Hill has been the home to doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs, Senators, and rum smugglers during the days of prohibition. A family home, a bordello, a speakeasy, a restaurant…the stories that White Hill Mansion can tell are secretly hiding within its walls. The only way to hear them is to visit White Hill and listen for yourself!

Idaho Tuberculosis Hospital Ghost Hunt. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures and Only In Your State

This #haunted location is well known across the state of Idaho, the many rumors of its hauntings are correct! The Paranormal Activity that has been captured and witnessed here will make you question if you really do want to sleep here!

Sleepover and non sleepover tickets available.


Some of the paranormal experienced here, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions, doors banging, knocks, whistles and items being removed. The sense of never being alone is one of the most reported paranormal phenomena. Where ever you venture off too, you are never alone! Are you brave enough to set foot in this haunted hospital?

It’s one thing to visit a “haunted” location by day but to actually spend the night in one is another story. Today, the Gooding University Inn operates as a quaint little resort in southern Idaho. The century-old structure is bursting with history, but it’s also considered one of the region’s most haunted destinations. Newly renovated and welcoming visitors with open arms, the structure doesn’t seem very haunting. However, you never know what you might come across after a night spent in this ex-hospital.

Located in the middle of vast swaths of farmland is the Gooding University Inn and Resort. It may not look like much of a resort from the outside, but it welcomes visitors all year long who are looking for a retreat in southern Idaho. However, this building also contains a creepy history that has some people saying it's haunted...

The structure was built in 1917 when it was first established as Gooding College. At the time, Gooding College was the only place of higher education in Idaho in between Caldwell and Pocatello. However, the school shut down in 1938.

The structure opened back up in the 1940s when it was converted into a tuberculosis hospital. It was considered one of the most advanced hospitals to specialize in TB in the entire country during its time but it closed down officially in 1976.

After remaining empty for many decades, the structure opened back up in 2004. This time, it was known as "The Get Inn Bed and Breakfast". This unique B&B capitalized on its haunted reputation and welcomed paranormal investigators to spend the night. Numerous ghost hunting groups have tried their hand at exploring the ex-hospital for any sort of ghostly activity.

In fact, investigators concluded that the building is indeed a hot spot for paranormal activity. Witnesses have reported seeing apparitions of an old man in a white coat along with a woman with a young girl. Mysterious whispers and footsteps down empty hallways are also a common unexplained occurrence. There's no doubt that this building saw a lot of pain during its time as a hospital, and it seems that some patients have never really left it.

The #Haunted Old Colorado Prison Museum Ghost Hunt | Canon City, Colorado

The only thing more terrifying than “doing time” in prison is being surrounded by 140 years of frustrated spirits that are still waiting to be released. The Museum of Colorado Prisons is not only haunted by the inmates whose artifacts have been placed on display but also by the women who had the unfortunate opportunity to reside within the cells of its building.

Each and everyone one of the spirits is waiting patiently for guests to hear the painstaking stories of an imprisoned life. Known as one of the most haunted locations in Colorado, paranormal investigators from all around the country and world have flocked to Cañon City to seek out evidence and experiences of inmates who have crossed beyond the veil.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons opened in June of 1988 after devoted and concerned Fremont County residents realized their vision of documenting over 140 years of prison life in the state of Colorado. Among the haunted exhibits and displays are that such as the old office furniture used by former Warden Roy Best, documentation the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947, and items belonging to both Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

With over a century of trapped souls and haunted objects on display throughout the building, it’s understandable that the paranormal community is fascinated with the Museum of Colorado Prisons. Orbs floating, screams that shatter the silence, soft and loud sobs that tear at your heart, the smell of tobacco wafting through the corridors, inexplicable cold spots, shadow figures lurking within the cells, disembodied female voices harassing male guests, bone-chilling EVPs (electronic voice phenomena,) full-bodied apparitions, the appearance of a trickster spirit, objects moving of their own volition, lights flashing on and off, cell doors slamming shut…the imprint made by the artifacts and former inmates leaves mounds of evidence and experiences for the living to relate to and be terrified of the formerly imprisoned!

The only question that truly remains is…will you be brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in Cell 19 that is said to be haunted by a female prisoner that died inside? She may have more than simply a message from the other side waiting for you!

In the 1980s, a group of Fremont County residents envisioned the preservation of the history of the Colorado Prison System in order to educate the public, memorialize the evolution in prison system and deter criminal activity. With the approval of the Colorado State Legislature on April 24, 1986, the vision became a reality with the birth of The Museum of Colorado Prisons.

The uniqueness of the museum lies not only in its attention to detail in cataloguing artifacts of over a century worth of criminal activity but also in the building itself. In 1935, the facility was constructed as the Women’s Prison Building which housed the female prison population until the late 1970s.

The Baladerry Inn was built as a farmhouse in 1812 on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as part of the George Bushman farm. The picturesque countryside was an ideal location for agricultural growth but soon it would come to know the taste of blood. Ghost Adventures Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

The fateful battle that would become a strong determining factor of the Civil War took place in the small town and fields of Gettysburg from July 1st-July 3rd of 1863. General Robert E. Lee had crushed the Union forces at Chancellorsville and began to advance his Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania in the latter part of June of the same year. There he would clash with the Union Army of the Potomac led by General George G. Meade.

The bulk of both the Confederate and Union forces engaged in battle at the crossroads town of Gettysburg. The three days of fighting left heavy casualties on both sides. The Union Army lost 23,000 men while the Confederates lost upwards of 28,000. With the loss at Gettysburg, the Confederates lost the hope of foreign recognition of their cause and led General Lee to offer his resignation to President Jefferson Davis. The offer was declined but after the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Vicksburg, the Civil War was turned in the Union favor.

During these days of battle, the Baladerry Inn, like many other homes around the battlefields, served as a field hospital for wounded soldiers and civilians alike. The main hall was used to treat the soldiers where several amputations took place. You can imagine that with the lack of anesthesia and very little attention given to sterility, many soldiers met their demise. There was nothing but whiskey to dull the pain and infection ran rampant amongst them.

Today, there is still a blood stain forever etched into the hardwood planks of the Baladerry Inn. Forensic methods using luminol and UV lighting has revealed the marks left by the Civil War soldiers so many years ago.

Today the Baladerry Inn serves as bed and breakfast with 10 rooms between the main house and the carriage house. Many of the original architectural structures are still standing such as the brick fireplace that is the central figure in the spacious Great Room. Although it is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world, you should know that you rarely sleep alone.

There are many spirits that still linger around the Baladerry Inn. Those most often seen are the Confederate Soldiers that died in and around the property. Perhaps you will have the great fortune of meeting one of the Southern Gentlemen and hearing the tales of when cotton was high and the hopes of a nation died on a battlefield in a northern crossroads town.

Friday March 19th, 2021, 8:00PM - Saturday March 20th, 2021, 4:00AM

Madison Seminary6769 Middle Ridge RdMadison, OH44057 Location Map

Are you ready to explore the #haunted Madison Seminary, which was also once used as an Asylum.

The structures on this property date back to the mid-1800s, and the stories within these walls are waiting to be told. Rife with history, Madison Seminary has filled several different roles over the years, and countless people called it home. Question is, how many of them still roam the halls?

And are you ready to try to make contact with them? Maybe you’ll encounter Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy who worked for the Union, and find she still has something to say. Or perhaps any one of the many people who stayed here when it was a school, or a hospital for the mentally ill, or the vocational rehabilitation facility for the women’s prison?

Volunteers, visitors and paranormal investigators alike claim a wide range of activity at Madison Seminary, including knocking in response to questions, footsteps heard down empty hallways, and disembodied voices in their ears. Many people report they feel uncomfortable in certain areas and the distinct feeling of being watched. Seemingly intelligent interaction with investigation equipment is common; motion detectors going off in empty rooms, EVPs captured on recorders in response to questions, as well as equipment malfunction such as brand-new batteries being drained unexplainably.

Others say they have witnessed doors opening and closing on their own and lights turning on and off. It is not uncommon for people to assert they have been touched, their hair pulled, or their clothing tugged. More than once, visitors have maintained seeing a female apparition, or shadow figures lurking within these rooms. Often, the sound of children’s laughter can also be heard.

Madison Seminary is calling to you. Are you ready to try to communicate with the child spirits who still dwell here using the toys in “Sarah’s Room”? Spend some time in the basement and see who shows up. Stories abound on every floor of this historic institution. Come with us and see if you have what it takes to undertake a vigil in the top floor “asylum” – if you dare.

Consisting of two historic buildings – “The Ohio Cottage” and “The Civil War” building, Madison Seminary has a rich and varied history. The Civil War building consists of 23 rooms on three floors, measuring 6,120 square feet. The Ohio Cottage boasts 63 rooms comprised of 25,136 square feet.

The Ohio Cottage has served many purposes throughout its extensive history, but it was first constructed in the mid-1840s to provide a space for secondary education and housed Madison Seminary from 1847 until 1891. In 1859, the brick boarding hall was added to the east side of the building, which is now referred to as the Civil War building. Due to the rise of public education, the seminary closed its doors and the building was sold to the Ohio Women’s Relief Corps (WRC) in 1891.The structure was then renamed Madison Home. It offered assistance and a place to live for those women who were displaced by the Civil War, including mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers, as well as Army nurses. At this time, the west wing was added onto the building.

One of the building’s most famous residents was a woman named Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy working for the Union. Her husband was killed in front of her by Confederate sympathizers upon learning that Elizabeth was pro-Union. She was recruited by Abraham Lincoln to spy for the North until her identity became known in 1864. In 1865, she moved to the Madison Home and she died there in 1898.

However, in 1904, the WRC was no longer able to afford the upkeep on the property and it was donated to the State of Ohio, even though a part of the building continued to be used by WRC. The new name for the facility became the Home of the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Their Wives, Mothers, Widows and Army Nurses. The state maintained the building until 1962 as a home for military widows and veterans’ children in need. A one-story center section which connects the Ohio Cottage and the east wing was built in 1959.

When the Madison Home ran into financial difficulties in 1962, the property was acquired by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and the women who were residing there at the time were forced to live with relatives or sent to nursing homes.

The building was used to rehabilitate mentally ill patients from Cleveland State Hospital from 1962-1975, and it became part of Apple Creek Institution. At this time, the name of the building changed to Opportunity Village, and it was additionally used as a residence for women with milder forms of developmental disabilities. It was also briefly used as an extension to Cleveland State Hospital for elderly women suffering from dementia in 1964. In addition, inmates from the Ohio Women’s Reformatory in Marysville, Ohio who were model prisoners were allowed to live here and participate in vocational rehabilitation programs which taught them occupational skills to help them become productive members of the community. Due to funding problems, Opportunity Village was closed in April of 1975.

In 1977, Lake County purchased the property, and Madison Township leased it in 1978, using it for government offices until 1993. Part of the building was used by the local police station in the early 1990s. But from 1993 until 1998, the buildings remained vacant, perhaps because when the property was listed for rent, the ad stated: “can be leased cheap, caution – building may be haunted”. In 1998, it was sold to the owner of Cass-Mill Nurseries and it was used for storage and office space for several years. Madison Historical Society was allowed to use a portion of the building as a museum during this time.

In 2016, Adam Kimmell purchased the property and began to turn it into a virtual “time capsule” – filling the rooms with period furniture and protecting the beautiful details of the architecture. Since that time, he has worked diligently, along with the “MAD crew”, to preserve not only the buildings, but also the stories of those who lived and worked in this amazing, historic place.

Many of the volunteers and visitors will tell you that when you walk into Madison Seminary, you are walking into history – and that there is no shortage of spirits who are waiting to tell their stories and let you know you are not alone. Join us and see who you might meet within these walls. With so many souls passing through these doors over the past 170 years, there is sure to be someone waiting for you…

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

The Baladerry Inn was built as a farmhouse in 1812 on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as part of the George Bushman farm. The picturesque countryside was an ideal location for agricultural growth but soon it would come to know the taste of blood. Ghost Adventures Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

The fateful battle that would become a strong determining factor of the Civil War took place in the small town and fields of Gettysburg from July 1st-July 3rd of 1863. General Robert E. Lee had crushed the Union forces at Chancellorsville and began to advance his Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania in the latter part of June of the same year. There he would clash with the Union Army of the Potomac led by General George G. Meade.

The bulk of both the Confederate and Union forces engaged in battle at the crossroads town of Gettysburg. The three days of fighting left heavy casualties on both sides. The Union Army lost 23,000 men while the Confederates lost upwards of 28,000. With the loss at Gettysburg, the Confederates lost the hope of foreign recognition of their cause and led General Lee to offer his resignation to President Jefferson Davis. The offer was declined but after the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Vicksburg, the Civil War was turned in the Union favor.

During these days of battle, the Baladerry Inn, like many other homes around the battlefields, served as a field hospital for wounded soldiers and civilians alike. The main hall was used to treat the soldiers where several amputations took place. You can imagine that with the lack of anesthesia and very little attention given to sterility, many soldiers met their demise. There was nothing but whiskey to dull the pain and infection ran rampant amongst them.

Today, there is still a blood stain forever etched into the hardwood planks of the Baladerry Inn. Forensic methods using luminol and UV lighting has revealed the marks left by the Civil War soldiers so many years ago.

Today the Baladerry Inn serves as bed and breakfast with 10 rooms between the main house and the carriage house. Many of the original architectural structures are still standing such as the brick fireplace that is the central figure in the spacious Great Room. Although it is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world, you should know that you rarely sleep alone.

There are many spirits that still linger around the Baladerry Inn. Those most often seen are the Confederate Soldiers that died in and around the property. Perhaps you will have the great fortune of meeting one of the Southern Gentlemen and hearing the tales of when cotton was high and the hopes of a nation died on a battlefield in a northern crossroads town.

Madison Seminary6769 Middle Ridge RdMadison, OH44057 Location Map

Are you ready to explore the #haunted Madison Seminary, which was also once used as an Asylum.

The structures on this property date back to the mid-1800s, and the stories within these walls are waiting to be told. Rife with history, Madison Seminary has filled several different roles over the years, and countless people called it home. Question is, how many of them still roam the halls?

And are you ready to try to make contact with them? Maybe you’ll encounter Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy who worked for the Union, and find she still has something to say. Or perhaps any one of the many people who stayed here when it was a school, or a hospital for the mentally ill, or the vocational rehabilitation facility for the women’s prison?

Volunteers, visitors and paranormal investigators alike claim a wide range of activity at Madison Seminary, including knocking in response to questions, footsteps heard down empty hallways, and disembodied voices in their ears. Many people report they feel uncomfortable in certain areas and the distinct feeling of being watched. Seemingly intelligent interaction with investigation equipment is common; motion detectors going off in empty rooms, EVPs captured on recorders in response to questions, as well as equipment malfunction such as brand-new batteries being drained unexplainably.

Others say they have witnessed doors opening and closing on their own and lights turning on and off. It is not uncommon for people to assert they have been touched, their hair pulled, or their clothing tugged. More than once, visitors have maintained seeing a female apparition, or shadow figures lurking within these rooms. Often, the sound of children’s laughter can also be heard.

Madison Seminary is calling to you. Are you ready to try to communicate with the child spirits who still dwell here using the toys in “Sarah’s Room”? Spend some time in the basement and see who shows up. Stories abound on every floor of this historic institution. Come with us and see if you have what it takes to undertake a vigil in the top floor “asylum” – if you dare.

Consisting of two historic buildings – “The Ohio Cottage” and “The Civil War” building, Madison Seminary has a rich and varied history. The Civil War building consists of 23 rooms on three floors, measuring 6,120 square feet. The Ohio Cottage boasts 63 rooms comprised of 25,136 square feet.

The Ohio Cottage has served many purposes throughout its extensive history, but it was first constructed in the mid-1840s to provide a space for secondary education and housed Madison Seminary from 1847 until 1891. In 1859, the brick boarding hall was added to the east side of the building, which is now referred to as the Civil War building. Due to the rise of public education, the seminary closed its doors and the building was sold to the Ohio Women’s Relief Corps (WRC) in 1891.The structure was then renamed Madison Home. It offered assistance and a place to live for those women who were displaced by the Civil War, including mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers, as well as Army nurses. At this time, the west wing was added onto the building.

One of the building’s most famous residents was a woman named Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy working for the Union. Her husband was killed in front of her by Confederate sympathizers upon learning that Elizabeth was pro-Union. She was recruited by Abraham Lincoln to spy for the North until her identity became known in 1864. In 1865, she moved to the Madison Home and she died there in 1898.

However, in 1904, the WRC was no longer able to afford the upkeep on the property and it was donated to the State of Ohio, even though a part of the building continued to be used by WRC. The new name for the facility became the Home of the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Their Wives, Mothers, Widows and Army Nurses. The state maintained the building until 1962 as a home for military widows and veterans’ children in need. A one-story center section which connects the Ohio Cottage and the east wing was built in 1959.

When the Madison Home ran into financial difficulties in 1962, the property was acquired by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and the women who were residing there at the time were forced to live with relatives or sent to nursing homes.

The building was used to rehabilitate mentally ill patients from Cleveland State Hospital from 1962-1975, and it became part of Apple Creek Institution. At this time, the name of the building changed to Opportunity Village, and it was additionally used as a residence for women with milder forms of developmental disabilities. It was also briefly used as an extension to Cleveland State Hospital for elderly women suffering from dementia in 1964. In addition, inmates from the Ohio Women’s Reformatory in Marysville, Ohio who were model prisoners were allowed to live here and participate in vocational rehabilitation programs which taught them occupational skills to help them become productive members of the community. Due to funding problems, Opportunity Village was closed in April of 1975.

In 1977, Lake County purchased the property, and Madison Township leased it in 1978, using it for government offices until 1993. Part of the building was used by the local police station in the early 1990s. But from 1993 until 1998, the buildings remained vacant, perhaps because when the property was listed for rent, the ad stated: “can be leased cheap, caution – building may be haunted”. In 1998, it was sold to the owner of Cass-Mill Nurseries and it was used for storage and office space for several years. Madison Historical Society was allowed to use a portion of the building as a museum during this time.

In 2016, Adam Kimmell purchased the property and began to turn it into a virtual “time capsule” – filling the rooms with period furniture and protecting the beautiful details of the architecture. Since that time, he has worked diligently, along with the “MAD crew”, to preserve not only the buildings, but also the stories of those who lived and worked in this amazing, historic place.

USS North Carolina Ghost Hunt

USS North Carolina Ghost Hunt

Friday March 26th, 2021, 7:30PM - Saturday March 27th, 2021, 3:00AM

USS NORTH CAROLINA Battleship1 Battleship RdWilmington, NC28401 Location Map

The #haunted USS North Carolina Battleship. One of the most #haunted locations in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The USS North Carolina is the most decorated battleship from World War II. Earning 15 battle stars for her courageous actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations, the USS North Carolina saved thousands upon thousands of lives. This battleship that now commemorates the veterans and 11,000 North Carolinians that lost their lives in World War II, is a hotbed of paranormal activity that has drawn attention from investigators and enthusiasts from all over the globe!

There have been several sightings of full-bodied apparitions, particularly one of a young man with blonde hair that has been seen in several passageways. Apparitions and shadow figures have been witnessed peering through portholes and around corners. Hatches and doors have opened and closed themselves, lights turn off and on of their own volition, electrical devices turning on and off, items on the USS North Carolina move by themselves, people being touched, objects being thrown, disembodied voices, running, footsteps, and multiple EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) have been captured—one thing is sure, although the battleship has come to rest in the harbor at Wilmington, the spirits are still hard at work!

Commissioned in 1941, the USS North Carolina was a formidable seafaring weapon that required 144 officers and 2195 military men to keep her operating at top speed. Even though she took part in every major naval offense in the Pacific Theater, she only lost 10 men in action and saw 67 wounded. One of the most infamous attacks that left casualties was a Japanese torpedo strike in the battleship’s hull. Five men died during the attack, but the expertise of her crew allowed her to keep up with the fleet. Many believe the spirit of the young soldier that has been seen in the battleship’s washroom is one of the men who died in the torpedo attack.



History Information:

After World War I, the United States retreated into itself becoming less involved in Foreign conflicts and affairs. After an economic and political roller coaster that lasted almost two decades, the United States laid the keel of the USS North Carolina in its cradle in October of 1937. The New York Navy Yard became the birthplace of the first battleship to be constructed in sixteen years. She was the first of ten battleships that would join the American fleet when the United States overcame its impotence and joined the battle in World War II.

Commissioned on April 9, 1941, the USS North Carolina boasted nine 16-inch/45 caliber guns and twenty 5-inch/38 caliber guns. This formidable seafaring weapon required 144 commissioned officers and 2195 military members to man her hull. She would go on to take part in every major naval offensive in the Pacific Theater of operations earning 15 battle stars. It was during the Battle of the Eastern Solomons that her primary role was established. In August of 1942, the USS North Carolina’s anti-aircraft barrage helped to save the Enterprise and she became the protector of aircraft carriers.

During her service in World War II, the USS North Carolina carried out nine shore bombardments, sank an enemy troopship, destroyed 24 enemy aircraft and assisted in shooting down many more. Her anti-aircraft weaponry proved to protect the aircraft carriers halting several attacks. She covered over 300,000 miles and survived the propaganda of the Japanese radio that claimed she had been sunk on several occasions. With several near misses and one hit with a Japanese torpedo in the Battleship’s hull, the crew manned her well and she was able to keep up with the fleet. At the end of the war, there were only 10 casualties and 67 wounded.

The USS North Carolina is a survivor and she had one more battle to win. After being decommissioned in June of 1947, she was placed on the Inactive Reserve Fleet in Bayonne, New Jersey for 14 years. It was decided in 1958 that she would be scrapped so the citizens of North Carolina set off to fight on her behalf. The Save Our Ship (SOS) successfully brought her home in October of 1961 where she was dedicated the following April as North Carolina’s memorial to the World War II veterans and the 11,000 North Carolinians who lost their lives during the war.

The regal battleship is a historical beacon for remembering a tumultuous time that impacted the entire world. Having witnessed violence on such an escalated scale, there is no reason to question the visitors, staff and investigators that have all claimed seeing figures in various passageways and portholes around her majestic decks. Probably the most infamous hauntings is that of a solider, who lost his life in the battleship’s washroom during the Japanese torpedo strike. Whomever still lingers aboard the USS North Carolina, they have stories to tell and are simply waiting on someone who wants to listen!

The Squirrel Cage Jail Ghost Hunt

The Squirrel Cage Jail Ghost Hunt

Friday April 9th, 2021, 8:00PM - Saturday April 10th, 2021, 3:00AM

Squirrel Cage Jail of Pottawattamie County, Iowa226 Pearl StCouncil Bluffs, IA51503 Location Map

The #haunted Squirrel Cage Jail has been featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures. The Squirrel Jail in Iowa is one of the most haunted jails. It was also home to the "Jake Bird" the evil serial killer who took the lives of 44 victims!

Are you ready to explore a unique piece of history and find out who may still dwell within the confines of this unusual lockup?

Constructed in 1885 and in operation as a jail until 1969, the Squirrel Cage Jail offers guests a chance to experience what life may have been like doing time (or working in) a “human-rotary” style jail. One of only three such jails of still in existence, this strange building design surely holds secrets from the past.

Ghost hunting

Not surprisingly, there are a number of reports of paranormal activity within the structure, some dating back to when the jail was still in operation. It is said a jailer from the 1950s named Bill Foster refused to use the fourth floor as his living quarters because of “strange goings-on up there,” which including footsteps when no one was up there and odd sensations when he went upstairs to investigate.

One former tour guide has claimed to have seen the spirit of J.M. Carter, the gentleman who supervised the building’s construction in 1885. He was reportedly the first resident of the fourth floor living quarters. Perhaps he has stuck around to keep an eye on things to this day.

Others have recounted seeing a full-bodied apparition, also on the top floor, who they believe may be another former jailer named Otto Gufath. Still another person stated she saw the ghost of what appeared to be a sad little girl dressed in gray, sitting inside a cell which was completely inaccessible at the time.

Over the years, visitors and employees alike have described a number of possible paranormal happenings, including feeling like they are being watched, having their clothes tugged on, hearing disembodied voices, doors opening and closing by themselves, seeing strange lights and hearing odd, unexplainable noises.

Spend some time with us and see if you can discover which spirits may still be lingering here, trying to communicate with the living – and what they might have to say about the conditions they endured at the Squirrel Cage Jail.

Location History:

In Council Bluffs, Iowa there stands a stately brick building erected in the late 1800s which houses a most remarkable lockup known as the Squirrel Cage Jail. One of only 18 of its kind built, this “human rotary’ jail is now only one of three still in existence, and the only one that stands three stories tall.

Constructed in 1885 under the supervision of J. M. Carter, the jail features 10 pie-shaped cells on each level, and each cell was meant to house between two – and some say up to six – prisoners at a time. This bizarre design was the brainchild of Indianapolis natives William H. Brown and Benjamin F. Haugh, and the intention was to “provide maximum security with minimum jailer attention,” – thus cutting down on the number of personnel needed to run the prison.

The jailer’s office, kitchen, trustee cells and women’s quarters were located in the front of the building on the first floor and living quarters for the jailer were on the fourth floor. The three levles of cells are placed on a central carousel or drum which was turned using a hand crank. The bars (or cage) are stationary and have only one opening on each floor. The cells were rotated using the hand crank until each one would line up with the cage opening so that prisoners could be accessed, but only one cell at a time.

Over time, the rotating carousel housing the cells became more difficult to turn and often became stuck, making it nearly impossible to get food or medical assistance to prisoners if needed. Inmates often suffered broken arms and legs when they would mistakenly (or deliberately) stick their limbs through the individual cell bars while the drum was being spun.

However, there are only four recorded deaths on the property during its more than 80-year run as a prison. One inmate died from and apparent heart attack. Another was found hanged in his cell. A third prisoner reportedly died when he fell three stories after trying to climb up the cage to carve his name in the ceiling. The fourth death was rumored to be that of an officer of the local police department who accidently shot himself during the confusion of the Farmer’s Holiday Association Strike in 1932 when 84 protesters were arrested and jailed.

The Squirrel Cage Jail was in operation until 1969, when it was deemed “unfit for human habitation.” In 1971, after the prison was shut down and its remaining prisoners moved to other facilities, it was obtained by the Council Bluffs Park Board. They were successful in getting the structure listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.The Historical Society of Pottawattamie County – who owns and operates the building today – headed the endeavor to protect the jail in 1977, and it is now a museum which offers a glimpse into the unique cultural and architectural history of Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Malvern Manor103 E 3rd StMalvern, IA51551 Location Map

Disembodied voices, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions!
Are you ready to investigate?

Welcome to the #haunted Malvern Manor

The Malvern Manor is one of the most haunted locations in Iowa! As featured on Destination America Paranormal Lockdown, the Manor’s sinister calls out to investigators and paranormal programs to seek the truth for the patients that suffered neglect and abuse in life. This is one location that will not disappoint, if you are brave enough to face the darkness that lingers in the corridors!

Originally built as a hotel in the late 1800’s, this building has also played home as a nursing home, a convalescent halfway house, and most recently as a group home and care facility for those with developmental challenges and those suffering mental illnesses. Supposedly closing its doors in 2005 due to complaints about patient mistreatment, the Malvern Manor may stand empty, but it is anything but quiet.

Ghost hunting Only In Your State Is This Paranormal

Disembodied voices, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions of women, men and children, disembodied coughs, whistling and laughter, objects moving of their own volition, heavy footsteps, knocks, bangs, scratching on the walls, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) of spine-tingling voices—the Malvern Manor has led to a plethora of evidence gathered over the last 12 years, you definitely don’t want to miss this one!

Perhaps little 12-year-old Inez will reach out to you. Dying of a supposed accidental hanging back in 1901, Inez has still been heard running through the hallways, giggling and playing peek-a-boo from her doorway with guests. Maybe you will be the one to solve the real mystery of what actually happened to little Inez!

Or maybe you will tap into the spirit of Grace. A former patient that suffered from both Multiple Personalities Disorder and Schizophrenia, she was facing her own demons in life. The night staff spoke of hearing a man’s voice in her room chanting, “The Devil is coming for me…” when they investigated further, they realized that the voice was coming from Grace herself. After her passing, many investigators have captured what is known as the “Devil Man” on EVP in her room. Was she actually suffering from a mental illness or was something darker and more sinister at play? Perhaps you will be the one to get to the bottom of Grace’s haunting and finally bring her peace.

With all the complaints of mistreatment and abuse, it should be no surprise that there is a darkness that has taken up residency at Malvern Manor. An inhuman presence that lurks in the rooms just below the attic has made itself known to several guests and investigators. It has come to light that a patient that once occupied one of those rooms suffered years of physical and sexual abuse at the hands of another patient before the staff actually discovered what was happening. Are you brave enough to stand up to the darkness?

The Malvern Manor with its slanted, winding hallways and disjointed rooms—this is one formidable location that people are clamoring to investigate. Don’t miss out on your chance!

The Malvern Manor was built in the late 1800’s as a family-run hotel and inn. With the completion of the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad in late 1869, Malvern often played hosts to weary travelers making their way across the country. With competitive rates of two dollars a night, guests frequented the hotel receiving both a place to rest and hot meals to sustain them during their travels.

As Iowa joined the “good roads” movement, Malvern was left off the path of the construction of Highway 34. This caused lots of economic distress for the area and the hospitality industry was deeply affected as people traveled less and less by train. The family-run hotel was no exception to this economic downward spiral.

Since this time, Malvern Manor has served as a nursing home for the elderly, a convalescent half-way house for those trying to reintegrate into society after facing economic hardships and addictions, and a group home and care facility for a range of folks from those with developmental challenges to those suffering from mental illness. This vast array of uses for this location has invited in an imprint of history that often struggle in the spiritual realm to make certain all visitors and guests know what happened during that spirit’s particular era.

In 1959, Geraldine Reid and her husband “Hap,” purchased what was then known as Nishna Cottage (now Malvern Manor). Even after her husband’s death in 1963, Geraldine continued to run the group home for those with mental illness and developmental challenges up until 2005. Since that time, the Manor has sat vacant but the spirits are still restless and seeking the opportunity to tell their story.

During its existence, there are over 100 documented deaths, at least 2 possible murders. One mysterious deaths is said to be that of a worker that was killed outside the building on the sidewalk, the other is one of a little girl named Inez a tragic story that has left more than just an imprint on Malvern Manor.

In 1901, 12-year-old Inez was playing outside with her brother Otto. She tells her brother she’s going to go play inside and he follows her up 10 minutes later. What meets her brother isn’t the sight of a vivacious little girl, but the scene of his sister hanging by her jump rope in the closet. The death was ruled an “accidental” hanging, but would a 12-year-old be capable of cinching the knot and somehow leveraging herself up enough to carry out the feat? The death was never investigated, but Inez is still lingering around the Malvern Manor. Outside her room people hear giggling and running and it’s said that a shadow figure plays “peek-a-boo” from the doorway of her room. Perhaps you will be the one to get the full story of what really occurred to little Inez.

Another spirit that seems to hang around is Grace. She was a patient that suffered from Schizophrenia and Multiple Personality Disorder. In life, she was haunted by her own demons as the voices endlessly tormented her. The night staff tells stories of hearing a man’s voice in Grace’s room changing “The Devil’s coming to get me…” When they investigated further they realized the voice was coming from Grace herself, manifesting one of her many personalities. Did Grace actually suffer from a mental illness or was something more sinister at play?

Even after her passing, Grace’s room is one of the most active in Malvern Manor. The spirits seem to prefer the male investigators and are known to express great displeasure by banging on walls and pulling on his clothes if he tries to leave the room before she is finished. The odd part is that investigators have continued to catch EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) of Grace’s different personalities. The “Devil Man,” and other voices have been captured on recordings. Is this pointing towards Grace’s mental torment continuing in death? Is it a residual imprint of the hardships she suffered in this realm? Or again, was it something more that haunted Grace in life?

There is another former patient that has been seen on multiple occasions at Malvern Manor. A young woman was committed to the convalescent home by her husband. She had an obsessive-compulsive disorder that centered around her perception of her husband’s attraction to her. She was convinced that his interest in her was waning and as the thought began to overrun her life, he had her committed in hopes it would help her. She died shortly after being admitted, the obsessive thought still on her mind. The staff would find her in front of the mirror pulling chunks of her hair out at a time. Guests have seen this same image of an angry woman pulling out her hair before she dissipates into nothing. She is surely still restless and seeking peace, perhaps you will be the one to help her.

With over a century of history manifesting within its walls, there is no surprise that Malvern Manor also has its share of darkness lurking around the corners. Staff and patients have shared horror stories of neglect and abuse that occurred during the time that Malvern Manor served the community. Overcrowding, under skilled staff, the lack of background checks and culpability –all these factors have left a sinister and negative presence within the walls. Investigators and psychic mediums have identified this haunting as dark and inhuman. The dark presence has been felt and seen in the rooms below the attic. According to one source, one of the patients that lived in that space suffered years of physical and sexual abuse by another patient before the staff discovered what was happening.

The spirits of Malvern Manor are restless and wanting to share their stories with all who will listen. Will you be willing to face the darkness to help the spirits find the light?

Ashmore Estates Overnight Ghost Hunt. One of the most #haunted locations in Illinois. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures and Only In Your State

This is a sleepover event.

Find out if the former residents of this former poor farm are still lingering in the dark corridors

Are you prepared to investigate one of the top three most haunted locations in Illinois? Do you have what it takes to encounter the spirits of those who may still be haunting the halls of this historic building? Join us, and see why a visit to Ashmore Estates may very well leave you feeling breathless…

Find out if the former residents of this former poor farm are still lingering in the dark corridors. Maybe you’ll face the spirits of past patients from the time when this building served as a psychiatric hospital. If you are brave enough to walk through the doors, you may find someone waiting to communicate with you.

The activity experienced on all three floors of this structure have caused some guests to flee, but other courageous souls have managed to stay through the night to recount their stories of being touched or awakened from their sleep by some unseen force.

Will you hear what some have reported as “cries of help” coming from seemingly empty rooms? Or maybe a whisper in your ear even though you think you’re alone? With over 100 reported deaths over the long history of this property, it’s no surprise that many people who stay here sense an incredible amount of residual energy remaining within these walls.

Wherever you venture throughout this location, you can be sure of one thing: you are never alone.

Location History:

Constructed as the new almshouse for the Coles County Poor Farm in 1916, the structure now known as Ashmore Estates cost just over $20,000 to build. It operated as poor house or county home until the late 1950s, serving the homeless, aged and mentally ill of the community who had no other place to go. It replaced the original almshouse which was built at the same location in 1857 but had fallen into disrepair and had become inhabitable. It was condemned in 1911 due to “vermin-infested walls,” “contaminated food,” as well as other factors.

From the time the construction of the new almshouse was completed in 1916 until February of 1959, countless people were forced to take up residence at this poor farm. And accordingly, many people died here. The county once maintained two small cemeteries nearby which hold the remains of between 60 and 100 people who were likely residents of the poor farm.

In 1959, Coles County sold the property to a corporation called Ashmore Estates, who opened and operated the building as a private psychiatric hospital. But by October of 1964, the hospital had to shut it doors due to the large amount of debt it had incurred. However, the building reopened as a facility to house state mental patients in 1965, and by 1968 there were 49 people in residence.

The property changed ownership again in July 1976 when Paul Swinford and Galen Martinie invested over $200,000 to bring the building up to code and to construct a modern addition to the original building. Construction began in 1977 but was not completed until sometime in the 1980s. Unfortunately, in 1986, all the residents had to be moved to other homes in the area because the financial losses incurred by the institution added up to more than $1.5 million. Swinford had partnered with Convalescent Management Associates so they could help manage the finances, but to no avail, as the county departments of Public Aid and Public Health would not issue the necessary licenses on a timely basis.

Up to 1990, the building sat abandoned, until once again Swinford, along with Corrections Corporation of America, attempted to resurrect it as a mental facility to treat and house teenage boys. But the zoning permit for the project was swiftly rejected. The building was once again abandoned. Soon, Ashmore Estates became notorious for rumors of being haunted, and became the subject of devastating vandalism.

Between 1998 and 2014, the property changed hands four times. Over the years, the various owners attempted to renovate and restore the building, and at one point it was used as a haunted house attraction. However, the current owners are credited with many of the safety and preservation improvements made to the building including a new roof, a kitchenette, and the installation of bathrooms. It is now being preserved for its historical significance and used for paranormal investigations.

So now that you know the long and complicated history of this intriguing place, are you ready to join us and find out which spirits may still be calling it home?

The Squirrel Cage Jail Ghost Hunt

Squirrel Cage Jail of Pottawattamie County, Iowa226 Pearl StCouncil Bluffs, IA51503 Location Map

The #haunted Squirrel Cage Jail has been featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures. The Squirrel Jail in Iowa is one of the most haunted jails. It was also home to the "Jake Bird" the evil serial killer who took the lives of 44 victims!

Are you ready to explore a unique piece of history and find out who may still dwell within the confines of this unusual lockup?

Constructed in 1885 and in operation as a jail until 1969, the Squirrel Cage Jail offers guests a chance to experience what life may have been like doing time (or working in) a “human-rotary” style jail. One of only three such jails of still in existence, this strange building design surely holds secrets from the past.

Ghost hunting

Not surprisingly, there are a number of reports of paranormal activity within the structure, some dating back to when the jail was still in operation. It is said a jailer from the 1950s named Bill Foster refused to use the fourth floor as his living quarters because of “strange goings-on up there,” which including footsteps when no one was up there and odd sensations when he went upstairs to investigate.

One former tour guide has claimed to have seen the spirit of J.M. Carter, the gentleman who supervised the building’s construction in 1885. He was reportedly the first resident of the fourth floor living quarters. Perhaps he has stuck around to keep an eye on things to this day.

Others have recounted seeing a full-bodied apparition, also on the top floor, who they believe may be another former jailer named Otto Gufath. Still another person stated she saw the ghost of what appeared to be a sad little girl dressed in gray, sitting inside a cell which was completely inaccessible at the time.

Over the years, visitors and employees alike have described a number of possible paranormal happenings, including feeling like they are being watched, having their clothes tugged on, hearing disembodied voices, doors opening and closing by themselves, seeing strange lights and hearing odd, unexplainable noises.

Spend some time with us and see if you can discover which spirits may still be lingering here, trying to communicate with the living – and what they might have to say about the conditions they endured at the Squirrel Cage Jail.

Location History:

In Council Bluffs, Iowa there stands a stately brick building erected in the late 1800s which houses a most remarkable lockup known as the Squirrel Cage Jail. One of only 18 of its kind built, this “human rotary’ jail is now only one of three still in existence, and the only one that stands three stories tall.

Constructed in 1885 under the supervision of J. M. Carter, the jail features 10 pie-shaped cells on each level, and each cell was meant to house between two – and some say up to six – prisoners at a time. This bizarre design was the brainchild of Indianapolis natives William H. Brown and Benjamin F. Haugh, and the intention was to “provide maximum security with minimum jailer attention,” – thus cutting down on the number of personnel needed to run the prison.

The jailer’s office, kitchen, trustee cells and women’s quarters were located in the front of the building on the first floor and living quarters for the jailer were on the fourth floor. The three levles of cells are placed on a central carousel or drum which was turned using a hand crank. The bars (or cage) are stationary and have only one opening on each floor. The cells were rotated using the hand crank until each one would line up with the cage opening so that prisoners could be accessed, but only one cell at a time.

Over time, the rotating carousel housing the cells became more difficult to turn and often became stuck, making it nearly impossible to get food or medical assistance to prisoners if needed. Inmates often suffered broken arms and legs when they would mistakenly (or deliberately) stick their limbs through the individual cell bars while the drum was being spun.

However, there are only four recorded deaths on the property during its more than 80-year run as a prison. One inmate died from and apparent heart attack. Another was found hanged in his cell. A third prisoner reportedly died when he fell three stories after trying to climb up the cage to carve his name in the ceiling. The fourth death was rumored to be that of an officer of the local police department who accidently shot himself during the confusion of the Farmer’s Holiday Association Strike in 1932 when 84 protesters were arrested and jailed.

The Squirrel Cage Jail was in operation until 1969, when it was deemed “unfit for human habitation.” In 1971, after the prison was shut down and its remaining prisoners moved to other facilities, it was obtained by the Council Bluffs Park Board. They were successful in getting the structure listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.The Historical Society of Pottawattamie County – who owns and operates the building today – headed the endeavor to protect the jail in 1977, and it is now a museum which offers a glimpse into the unique cultural and architectural history of Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Fairfield County Infirmary Ghost Hunt

Fairfield County Infirmary Ghost Hunt

Saturday April 10th, 2021, 8:30PM - Sunday April 11th, 2021, 4:00AM

Fairfield County Infirmary1587 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130-1038, United StatesLancaster, OH43130-1038 Location Map

The haunted Fairfield County Infirmary is a haven for the paranormal. Our overnight Ghost Hunt at this location will definitely test your nerve.

The Fairfield Infirmary harbors some dark secrets, and once you venture off into the former morgue, you’ll soon understand why this location has the haunted reputation that it does.

The embedded residual energy still lingers in these very walls!

The Paranormal:

With a long history consisting of over 170 years of serving the less fortunate in the community, this formidable brick building may hold more than history in its walls.

Some argue that the spirits of residents past still roam the halls. From a ghost named “Willy” who is said to haunt the second and third floors, to an entity of a little girl named “Susie” who may be lonely and looking for a playmate only to vanish into thin air, former employees claim this building is full of paranormal activity.

Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and slamming doors, smelling lavender perfume, and witnessing objects move seemingly on their own.

Perhaps the spirit of Jane Householder, an elderly woman who was burned to death when her clothing caught on fire from a gas stove, will make herself known and want to share her story with you.

Or maybe the former superintendent accused of abusing the residents who worked the fields is still hanging around – believing he is still in charge.

Prior investigations of this facility have proven to be active and hair-raising with reports of uncomfortable and uneasy feelings in the basement, slamming of the cell door on the third floor, a 7-foot dark shadow figure dwelling in the attic, and EVPs have been captured throughout the property.

Equipment failure or malfunction and unexplained banging often occurs, rattling even the most experienced ghost hunter.

Join us for a night of exploration and investigation of the Fairfield County Infirmary – as well as the cemetery full of unmarked graves situated behind the building. Do you dare? Are you ready to engage in a lone vigil in the basement where the makeshift morgue held bodies of those who died during the winters? Or in the jail-like area used to contain “problem” residents with the barred door closing you in? What about Room 322 – notorious for its reports of sightings of apparitions and physical interactions between entities and the living who have the courage to visit? There’s only one way to find out if you have what it takes…


Location History:

The property on which the current imposing brick structure consisting of 35,000 feet sits served the Fairfield County community for over 170 years.

In 1828, township officers charged with overseeing the poor and unfortunate contracted the construction of a wooden building just north of Lancaster, Ohio. It was soon filled to capacity, acting as a place where the destitute, mentally ill, physically disabled, elderly, and orphaned could receive food, clothing, shelter and medical care.

By 1840, the originally wood structure was replaced by a large brick building. Additions were made to the facility in 1865, both to the main building as well as constructing a number of outbuildings used for storage, tenants, laundry and farming. The working farm was located across the street and many residents worked the land to provide food for themselves and others housed at the infirmary.

In 1917, natural gas lines were run to the building to provide heat and lighting. Water pipes were laid in 1926, but electricity was not installed until 1958. A cemetery which stands behind the building is where paupers and residents without family to claim their bodies lie – and many of the graves are unmarked.

According to records, the number of individuals residing at the poorhouse in 1903 was 82, and they were “admitted” for several different reasons, including mental and physical health conditions that could not be managed by family members. There were many residents who spent most of their lives at the infirmary and who died there as well.

While some died from old age or their medical conditions, a few met their fate a bit more suddenly and tragically. One such story involves Jane Householder, a 73-year-old resident whose clothing caught on fire when she opened a gas stove. While attendants working at the infirmary were able to smother the fire, Ms. Householder survived her burns for only a few hours.

Stories persist that a former superintendent was particularly cruel to the residents of the poorhouse, reportedly beating them as they worked in the fields of the farm.

These punishments were witnessed by others in the community and reported, according to an article published in 1851 in the Lancaster Gazette.

The good Samaritans of the area effectively brought an end to the superintendent’s brutality, and the life of those residing at the poorhouse improved once the abuse ceased.

In fact, it is said that county officials would occasionally visit and enjoy a meal with residents of the infirmary.

Members of the community would donate Christmas gifts, local musicians would play for the elderly, and ice cream socials were held – all to help improve the lives of those housed there.

Still, stories of suicide and violence persist, as life at the poorhouse was difficult – too many people with a variety of problems all living under one roof often proves to be disastrous.

The infirmary remained in operation until May 1985, when the final sixteen residents were moved to local nursing facilities or foster homes.

The facility was remodeled in 1986 and the county offices were moved there after safety measures were taken, including the installation of fire alarms, sprinklers and emergency lighting.

It was then renamed the Clarence E. Miller Building after the former congressman, and the county health department continued to operate in the building until 2013, even though the structure was in complete disrepair by 2011.

The building remains vacant today, welcoming only those brave enough to step through the doors and see if there may, in fact, still be some former residents still lingering there…

Join us, and see why a visit to Ashmore Estates may very well leave you feeling breathless…

Find out if the former residents of this former poor farm are still lingering in the dark corridors. Maybe you’ll face the spirits of past patients from the time when this building served as a psychiatric hospital. If you are brave enough to walk through the doors, you may find someone waiting to communicate with you.

The activity experienced on all three floors of this structure have caused some guests to flee, but other courageous souls have managed to stay through the night to recount their stories of being touched or awakened from their sleep by some unseen force.

With over 100 reported deaths over the long history of this property, it’s no surprise that many people who stay here sense an incredible amount of residual energy remaining within these walls.

Wherever you venture throughout this location, you can be sure of one thing: you are never alone.

Location History:

Constructed as the new almshouse for the Coles County Poor Farm in 1916, the structure now known as Ashmore Estates cost just over $20,000 to build. It operated as poor house or county home until the late 1950s, serving the homeless, aged and mentally ill of the community who had no other place to go. It replaced the original almshouse which was built at the same location in 1857 but had fallen into disrepair and had become inhabitable. It was condemned in 1911 due to “vermin-infested walls,” “contaminated food,” as well as other factors.

From the time the construction of the new almshouse was completed in 1916 until February of 1959, countless people were forced to take up residence at this poor farm. And accordingly, many people died here. The county once maintained two small cemeteries nearby which hold the remains of between 60 and 100 people who were likely residents of the poor farm.

In 1959, Coles County sold the property to a corporation called Ashmore Estates, who opened and operated the building as a private psychiatric hospital. But by October of 1964, the hospital had to shut it doors due to the large amount of debt it had incurred. However, the building reopened as a facility to house state mental patients in 1965, and by 1968 there were 49 people in residence.

The property changed ownership again in July 1976 when Paul Swinford and Galen Martinie invested over $200,000 to bring the building up to code and to construct a modern addition to the original building. Construction began in 1977 but was not completed until sometime in the 1980s. Unfortunately, in 1986, all the residents had to be moved to other homes in the area because the financial losses incurred by the institution added up to more than $1.5 million. Swinford had partnered with Convalescent Management Associates so they could help manage the finances, but to no avail, as the county departments of Public Aid and Public Health would not issue the necessary licenses on a timely basis.

Up to 1990, the building sat abandoned, until once again Swinford, along with Corrections Corporation of America, attempted to resurrect it as a mental facility to treat and house teenage boys. But the zoning permit for the project was swiftly rejected. The building was once again abandoned. Soon, Ashmore Estates became notorious for rumors of being haunted, and became the subject of devastating vandalism.

Between 1998 and 2014, the property changed hands four times. Over the years, the various owners attempted to renovate and restore the building, and at one point it was used as a haunted house attraction. However, the current owners are credited with many of the safety and preservation improvements made to the building including a new roof, a kitchenette, and the installation of bathrooms. It is now being preserved for its historical significance and used for paranormal investigations.

So now that you know the long and complicated history of this intriguing place, are you ready to join us and find out which spirits may still be calling it home?

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

Friday April 16th, 2021, 8:30PM - Saturday April 17th, 2021, 4:00AM

Friends of White Hill Mansion217 4th StFieldsboro, NJ08505 Location Map

White Hill Mansion is one of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed, captured and experienced here will leave you breathless.

A mansion filled with Secrets!

One of the most haunted locations in New Jersey is a home that is nearly 300 years old. The White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, bordello, speakeasy, restaurant, and office building throughout the course of its existence. The spirits that still lurk in the shadows are eager to share three centuries worth of secrets and it doesn’t take much effort to get them to speak! As featured on Paranormal Lockdown, the haunting of White Hill Mansion is known as one of the most active locations in the Northeast!


Robert Field II inherited White Hill from his father in 1757. Robert was deeply involved in the Colonial Efforts leading up to the Revolutionary War and suddenly died under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the Delaware River in 1775. Mary, his wife, was left to run the property and raise three young children during the war. Her neighbors gladly sold her out as a rebel sympathizer leading the British to seize the property and use it as temporary quarters. The troops that occupied White Hill were the Hessian Army (the German troops hired by the British to assist in the war). One of the most common paranormal experiences is the German accented voice coming from the attic. Could it be one of the troops that made themselves at home during the Revolutionary War? Or perhaps its Heinrich Glenk who opened an upscale German restaurant with his wife at White Hill in 1923?

Many guests that visit White Hill talk about seeing a shadow figure that lurks around the basement. The figure creeps up next to people and then slinks back into the darkness. He has no respect for personal space. Others report disembodied voices, the sounds of children playing, footsteps up and down the stairs, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of a talkative woman who claims to be a former servant, a full-bodied apparition of a woman that many believe to be Mary Field watching sternly over the house, lights turning on and off of their own volition, objects being moved and hidden, a spirit that tugs on people’s clothing, a lighthearted prankster that enjoys toying with guests—the White Hill Mansion is a paranormal enthusiasts’ dream!

Over the centuries, White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, housed rum smugglers during prohibition, served as a bordello and speakeasy, a restaurant for over 50 years, an office building and now as a beacon of history full of secrets. During the restoration of White Hill, they conducted two archaeological digs that uncovered 30,000 artifacts leading to the speculation that the property itself was built on an ancient Native American settlement. With all of the history, it’s no wonder that White Hill is one of the most haunted houses in New Jersey.

The only question that remains—will you be brave enough to encounter the shadow man!?!?

Location History:

In 1722, Robert Field acquired White Hill and began construction of a home on the property. His son, aptly named Robert Field, inherited the property in 1757 where he lived with his wife and three small children before mysteriously drowning in the Delaware River on January 29, 1775. His wife, Mary, was left to run the 600 acres and raise their children during the tumultuous Revolutionary War.

Several of her neighbors were British sympathizers who jumped at the opportunity to curry favor with the Brits by reporting Mary as a colonialist. The rumors were supported by evidence of Captain Houston of the American Navy docking at White Hill and having dinner with Mary and her family. Of course, her support of the colonials led to the British Army seizing her home and searching the property for rebels in December of 1776. Captain Wrenden of the Hessian army (the German troops hired by the British during the Revolutionary War) decided to use White Hill as his temporary quarters and during his stay the Hessian Colonel Carl von Donop paid Mary a visit. Her hospitality, albeit forced upon her, helped to preserve White Hill throughout the duration of the war.

After the war, in 1779, Mary remarried Commodore Thomas Read who named White Hill his County Seat. The two lived happily together until his death at White Hill in 1788. Mary, widowed twice, remained in charge of the property until she signed it over to her son in 1797. Robert III’s ownership of the estate was short lived as he lost White Hill in 1804. His wife, Abigail nee Stockton, had a caring brother that wanted to preserve his family’s reputation. In doing so, he purchased White Hill and allowed Robert and Abigail to continue to live on the property.

Throughout the 19th century, White Hill had several owners. David Bruce, an inventor, created a typesetting machine in 1832 while living on the estate. Senator Isaac Field then purchased White Hill in 1847. Another inventor, Joseph Mayer, purchased the home in 1885 and developed several pottery techniques while living on the property. Several families lived, loved and died at White Hill but the 20th century would prove to attract even more people to the home.

In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk opened a German Restaurant at White Hill that catered to upscale clientele. They would remain for fifty years serving the people of the Borough of Fieldsboro before another family purchased the home. In 1991, the Stepan Company acquired White Hill but in 1999 they planned to demolish it. The Borough, in an effort to preserve history, bought White Hill and began the renovation process.

For well over 200 years, White Hill has been the home to doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs, Senators, and rum smugglers during the days of prohibition. A family home, a bordello, a speakeasy, a restaurant…the stories that White Hill Mansion can tell are secretly hiding within its walls. The only way to hear them is to visit White Hill and listen for yourself!

On April 16th, 1959, Jerry Myles and Lee Smart led twelve inmates in a riot which left Deputy Warden Ted Rothe dead. They took eighteen prison employees and five stool pigeon inmates as hostages, soaked rags with flammable liquid and threatened to burn them alive.

After thirty-six hours of mounting tension, Warden Floyd Powell implemented a daring rescue attempt. The National Guard fired a bazooka at the tower where the ringleaders were headquartered. Meanwhile, a team of men burst through the door in the west wall, crossed the yard, and entered the Cell House, freeing the hostages.

Myles and Smart were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide at the top floor of the tower, is it these two lovers that still haunt the Death Tower?

Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices and items being thrown is just a small amount of the reported paranormal experiences captured here.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed in the prison.

Not all the inmates were so violent however, and one was down right liked by the guards and prisoners. At the age of 40, Pete Eitner was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in 1918.

A model prisoner, he was assigned to tend to the prison turkeys and soon garnered the nickname of "Turkey Pete." As he aged, he began to lose some of his mental facilities and when a man stopped one day to admire his turkeys, Eitner sold him the entire flock for 25 cents each. This ended his turkey tending days, but that was ok, because he soon fantasized a new "job" as the owner and administrator of the prison. Prison officials humored him, "allowing" Eitner to "run" the prison from his cell. Fake checks were printed for him, with which he paid the prison expenses and payroll. He would also tell anyone who would listen that he had the coffee crop in Brazil one year, sold pink alligators, ships to the navy, and grasshopper legs to Fidel Castro.

When Turkey Pete died in 1967 at age 89, his cell (#1) was retired. His funeral was the only one ever held within the walls of the prison. Today, Cell #1 displays photos of Turkey Pete, as well as his few belongings.

Inside the prison walls, construction also continued with the building of a women’s prison, additional dormitories for the men, a store building, laundry, and dining room. In 1919, a 1,000 seat prison theater was built with funding donated by Senator William A. Clark, Jr.

Protests from labor unions and security concerns put an end to outside work in the 1920s; however, food production continued at the thirty-thousand-acre prison-owned ranch. Work inside the prison continued in various industries including cobbler and upholstery shops, and a garment industry that made clothes for state wards. A state license plate factory began production in the late 1920’s.

Though Conley’s administration made drastic improvements to the prison, it continually suffered from overcrowding through the decades.

On April 16, 1959, the prison suffered a major riot when two inmates by the names of Jerry Myles and Lee Smart, Jr. led some 12 inmates in an escape attempt. In the melee, Deputy Warden Theodore Rothe was shot and killed, and Warden Powell was temporarily held hostage.

The hostages were held for three days while the riot raged on. After the National Guard was brought in, the two ringleaders died in a murder-suicide, When Myles shot Smart and then turned the gun on himself.

Finally, the old and overcrowded prison was closed In 1979, and its prisoners moved to a new facility, five miles west of Deer Lodge.

White Hill Mansion is one of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed, captured and experienced here will leave you breathless.

A mansion filled with Secrets!

One of the most haunted locations in New Jersey is a home that is nearly 300 years old. The White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, bordello, speakeasy, restaurant, and office building throughout the course of its existence. The spirits that still lurk in the shadows are eager to share three centuries worth of secrets and it doesn’t take much effort to get them to speak! As featured on Paranormal Lockdown, the haunting of White Hill Mansion is known as one of the most active locations in the Northeast!


Robert Field II inherited White Hill from his father in 1757. Robert was deeply involved in the Colonial Efforts leading up to the Revolutionary War and suddenly died under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the Delaware River in 1775. Mary, his wife, was left to run the property and raise three young children during the war. Her neighbors gladly sold her out as a rebel sympathizer leading the British to seize the property and use it as temporary quarters. The troops that occupied White Hill were the Hessian Army (the German troops hired by the British to assist in the war). One of the most common paranormal experiences is the German accented voice coming from the attic. Could it be one of the troops that made themselves at home during the Revolutionary War? Or perhaps its Heinrich Glenk who opened an upscale German restaurant with his wife at White Hill in 1923?

Many guests that visit White Hill talk about seeing a shadow figure that lurks around the basement. The figure creeps up next to people and then slinks back into the darkness. He has no respect for personal space. Others report disembodied voices, the sounds of children playing, footsteps up and down the stairs, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of a talkative woman who claims to be a former servant, a full-bodied apparition of a woman that many believe to be Mary Field watching sternly over the house, lights turning on and off of their own volition, objects being moved and hidden, a spirit that tugs on people’s clothing, a lighthearted prankster that enjoys toying with guests—the White Hill Mansion is a paranormal enthusiasts’ dream!

Over the centuries, White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, housed rum smugglers during prohibition, served as a bordello and speakeasy, a restaurant for over 50 years, an office building and now as a beacon of history full of secrets. During the restoration of White Hill, they conducted two archaeological digs that uncovered 30,000 artifacts leading to the speculation that the property itself was built on an ancient Native American settlement. With all of the history, it’s no wonder that White Hill is one of the most haunted houses in New Jersey.

The only question that remains—will you be brave enough to encounter the shadow man!?!?

Location History:

In 1722, Robert Field acquired White Hill and began construction of a home on the property. His son, aptly named Robert Field, inherited the property in 1757 where he lived with his wife and three small children before mysteriously drowning in the Delaware River on January 29, 1775. His wife, Mary, was left to run the 600 acres and raise their children during the tumultuous Revolutionary War.

Several of her neighbors were British sympathizers who jumped at the opportunity to curry favor with the Brits by reporting Mary as a colonialist. The rumors were supported by evidence of Captain Houston of the American Navy docking at White Hill and having dinner with Mary and her family. Of course, her support of the colonials led to the British Army seizing her home and searching the property for rebels in December of 1776. Captain Wrenden of the Hessian army (the German troops hired by the British during the Revolutionary War) decided to use White Hill as his temporary quarters and during his stay the Hessian Colonel Carl von Donop paid Mary a visit. Her hospitality, albeit forced upon her, helped to preserve White Hill throughout the duration of the war.

After the war, in 1779, Mary remarried Commodore Thomas Read who named White Hill his County Seat. The two lived happily together until his death at White Hill in 1788. Mary, widowed twice, remained in charge of the property until she signed it over to her son in 1797. Robert III’s ownership of the estate was short lived as he lost White Hill in 1804. His wife, Abigail nee Stockton, had a caring brother that wanted to preserve his family’s reputation. In doing so, he purchased White Hill and allowed Robert and Abigail to continue to live on the property.

Throughout the 19th century, White Hill had several owners. David Bruce, an inventor, created a typesetting machine in 1832 while living on the estate. Senator Isaac Field then purchased White Hill in 1847. Another inventor, Joseph Mayer, purchased the home in 1885 and developed several pottery techniques while living on the property. Several families lived, loved and died at White Hill but the 20th century would prove to attract even more people to the home.

In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk opened a German Restaurant at White Hill that catered to upscale clientele. They would remain for fifty years serving the people of the Borough of Fieldsboro before another family purchased the home. In 1991, the Stepan Company acquired White Hill but in 1999 they planned to demolish it. The Borough, in an effort to preserve history, bought White Hill and began the renovation process.

For well over 200 years, White Hill has been the home to doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs, Senators, and rum smugglers during the days of prohibition. A family home, a bordello, a speakeasy, a restaurant…the stories that White Hill Mansion can tell are secretly hiding within its walls. The only way to hear them is to visit White Hill and listen for yourself!

The Abbey CC2951 E US Highway 50Canon City, CO81212 Location Map

This former Monastery in Colorado has a #haunted reputation like no other, and the the Paranormal Activity that has been captured and witnessed here is breathtaking!

Just how brave will you be?

Walk through the maze of dark corridors and feel the residual energy still lingering in this historic monastery. Investigate with us to uncover the secrets within these hallowed walls and try to communicate with persistent spirits who may still call The Abbey home.

Will we capture intelligent responses on EVPs, or will you feel as if you’re being followed, as previous guests have? Will you see apparitions of former monks wandering the halls? Or hear chanting emanating from the many chapels and echoing through the halls of The Abbey?

If you’re brave enough to explore the vast basement area, you may soon understand why some visitors have fled. A secret tunnel in the basement connecting the monastery to Ullathorne Hall was used to cross between buildings undetected… and it is one of the areas which has reports of a very dark and heavy presence.

The Abbey truly is haunted, which just leaves one question…Are you ready to undertake a lone vigil in the Gun Room?

In Canon City, CO, on over 200 acres of land, there stands an impressive, historic monastery now known as The Abbey – an event complex and winery that hosts events nearly every weekend. With Gothic towers, graceful arches and gorgeous stained-glass windows, it is a sight to behold. But perhaps there is much more to The Abbey than what guests normally see at a wedding, car show or class reunion.

Construction of the Abbey began in 1924, after Benedictine monks who traveled from Pennsylvania made their way to Breckenridge, Colorado for missionary work in 1886. Monks from other locales followed, and they eventually settled in Canon City in the early 1920s. Through the help of an intermediary, the 90 acres of land once known as Fruitmere Orchards was purchased for the Roman Catholic Church. At the time of the sale, the owner did not want to sell because the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan did not approve of such a transaction as they were opposed Catholics as well as any and all immigrants; which is why Simon Peter Smith, who along with seven priests and monks posing as his sons, made the purchase on behalf of the church.

Originally named Holy Cross, the Abbey was completed in 1925 and ended up costing three times the original estimate, for a total of $600,000.00, which was absorbed by other Benedictine Abbeys across the United States. The first abbot, Father Cyprian Bradley, was responsible for the creation of the boys’ school, but due to the Depression, the monastery encountered financial distress and Abbott Cyprian retired in 1933. Father Leonard Schwinn became the administrator and was able to overcome the Abbey’s financial woes. He was made abbot in 1937 and remained so for more than 26 years. Eventually the town grew up around the monastery and over time, many additions were made to the original Gothic Revival structure and other buildings were added to the campus, including a gymnasium, residence halls, classroom buildings, a field house and a dining hall.

There were three separate functions of the Abbey that were carried out by the monks: a boys’ school, Holy Cross College and Seminary, and Camp Holy Cross for boys aged 8 to 14. The boys’ preparatory high school was in operation from 1926 until 1985, beginning with just 35 students. By 1928, the monastery was housing 150 enrollees. Boys and young men from the area, and from all over the world, came to the Abbey School, and by 1972 there were about 250 students in attendance. However, in 1985, declining enrollment forced the closure of the school. The monastery remained open with approximately 20 elderly monks until it, too, closed in 2005 and the complex was sold in 2007.

Today, every Halloween, the Boy Scouts hold a haunted house in the basement of the Abbey, providing thrills and chills to those who like that kind of thing. But considering the complex history of the building of the monastery and the development of the schools, perhaps there are real ghosts who reside here, still taking care of the place they called home. In the decaying, shadow-filled halls of the monks’ living quarters, perhaps the some of the guardians can still be seen and heard? Come explore and experience this grand building and investigate with us where others have never been permitted and see what secrets we can uncover…

The haunted Idaho State Reformatory. We have exclusive access to both buildings, we can discover whose spirits may still be lingering, and what stories are still waiting to be told.

This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures

The Reformatory (also known as the Idaho Industrial Training School, and the Idaho State Reform School) was built in the early 1900s and was in operation for 60 years until it closed in the 1980s. Many troubled children were sent here – and several never left. Their restless souls may still be trying to reach out and tell us of the conditions they encountered.

Ghost hunting Paranormal Activity #haunted Is This Paranormal Idaho's Haunted Hospital CBS 2 Boise

A wide variety of paranormal activity has been reported throughout both the old dormitory and the medical building, including interactions with “ghost children” who play and roam the floors and grounds of the former reformatory complex. Apparitions of children and a doctor have been seen by locals in the infirmary – particularly in the surgical room. Others have said they hear the cries of a little girl. Maybe you’ll catch the disembodied voice of someone trying to share their story or feel a tug on your shirt from a ghost child trying to get your attention.

Who will you encounter during your visit? One of the many young people who were buried in the small cemetery located on the reformatory grounds? Maybe a doctor who treated the children for a variety of illnesses and accidents? Or, perhaps you’ll run into young Hope, a 14-year-old girl residing at the school who, according to a newspaper article, committed suicide in 1941 when she “removed a cord belt from her dress, stood on chair next to the door, tied the belt around her neck and hooked one end through the transom, then stepped off the chair.”

Rumored to be a place of neglect, abuse and despair for some of its residents, there is sure to be plenty of energy held within these walls. Join us and see what secrets you can reveal when you reach out to communicate with the lost souls of St. Anthony Girls’ Reformatory… if you dare!

Constructed in the early 1900s, the Idaho State Reform School and Infirmary (also called St. Anthony Girls Reformatory, and Idaho State Industrial School), was built by the state to house many children, including runaways, truants and orphans during the 60 years it was in operation.

During that time, it is rumored that many of the children suffered abuse and neglect at the hands of those in charge and that several accidents occurred resulting in the deaths of too many fragile lives. A small cemetery on the grounds of the reformatory holds the crumbling gravestones of at least 20 young people who met their demise while residing at the school.

The facility was decommissioned in the 1980s and two buildings remain standing today: the girls’ dormitory and the infirmary or medical building, referred to by the current owners as the “Haunted Hospital”.

While there seem to be few actual records still in existence about the conditions at the school or the events that took place inside, there is one newspaper report of a 14-year-old girl named Hope who committed suicide here in 1941.

Recently investigated by the Ghost Adventures team, St. Anthony Girls’ Reformatory and Infirmary appear to be places of frequent and varied paranormal activity. Is the spirit of Hope still lingering, just waiting to tell her story? Or perhaps one of the other children has secrets to share. There’s only one way to find out…

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Fairfield County Infirmary1587 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130-1038, United StatesLancaster, OH43130-1038 Location Map

The haunted Fairfield County Infirmary is a haven for the paranormal. Our overnight Ghost Hunt at this location will definitely test your nerve.

The Fairfield Infirmary harbors some dark secrets, and once you venture off into the former morgue, you’ll soon understand why this location has the haunted reputation that it does.

The embedded residual energy still lingers in these very walls!

The Paranormal:

With a long history consisting of over 170 years of serving the less fortunate in the community, this formidable brick building may hold more than history in its walls.

Some argue that the spirits of residents past still roam the halls. From a ghost named “Willy” who is said to haunt the second and third floors, to an entity of a little girl named “Susie” who may be lonely and looking for a playmate only to vanish into thin air, former employees claim this building is full of paranormal activity.

Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and slamming doors, smelling lavender perfume, and witnessing objects move seemingly on their own.

Perhaps the spirit of Jane Householder, an elderly woman who was burned to death when her clothing caught on fire from a gas stove, will make herself known and want to share her story with you.

Or maybe the former superintendent accused of abusing the residents who worked the fields is still hanging around – believing he is still in charge.

Prior investigations of this facility have proven to be active and hair-raising with reports of uncomfortable and uneasy feelings in the basement, slamming of the cell door on the third floor, a 7-foot dark shadow figure dwelling in the attic, and EVPs have been captured throughout the property.

Equipment failure or malfunction and unexplained banging often occurs, rattling even the most experienced ghost hunter.

Join us for a night of exploration and investigation of the Fairfield County Infirmary – as well as the cemetery full of unmarked graves situated behind the building. Do you dare? Are you ready to engage in a lone vigil in the basement where the makeshift morgue held bodies of those who died during the winters? Or in the jail-like area used to contain “problem” residents with the barred door closing you in? What about Room 322 – notorious for its reports of sightings of apparitions and physical interactions between entities and the living who have the courage to visit? There’s only one way to find out if you have what it takes…


Location History:

The property on which the current imposing brick structure consisting of 35,000 feet sits served the Fairfield County community for over 170 years.

In 1828, township officers charged with overseeing the poor and unfortunate contracted the construction of a wooden building just north of Lancaster, Ohio. It was soon filled to capacity, acting as a place where the destitute, mentally ill, physically disabled, elderly, and orphaned could receive food, clothing, shelter and medical care.

By 1840, the originally wood structure was replaced by a large brick building. Additions were made to the facility in 1865, both to the main building as well as constructing a number of outbuildings used for storage, tenants, laundry and farming. The working farm was located across the street and many residents worked the land to provide food for themselves and others housed at the infirmary.

In 1917, natural gas lines were run to the building to provide heat and lighting. Water pipes were laid in 1926, but electricity was not installed until 1958. A cemetery which stands behind the building is where paupers and residents without family to claim their bodies lie – and many of the graves are unmarked.

According to records, the number of individuals residing at the poorhouse in 1903 was 82, and they were “admitted” for several different reasons, including mental and physical health conditions that could not be managed by family members. There were many residents who spent most of their lives at the infirmary and who died there as well.

While some died from old age or their medical conditions, a few met their fate a bit more suddenly and tragically. One such story involves Jane Householder, a 73-year-old resident whose clothing caught on fire when she opened a gas stove. While attendants working at the infirmary were able to smother the fire, Ms. Householder survived her burns for only a few hours.

Stories persist that a former superintendent was particularly cruel to the residents of the poorhouse, reportedly beating them as they worked in the fields of the farm.

These punishments were witnessed by others in the community and reported, according to an article published in 1851 in the Lancaster Gazette.

The good Samaritans of the area effectively brought an end to the superintendent’s brutality, and the life of those residing at the poorhouse improved once the abuse ceased.

In fact, it is said that county officials would occasionally visit and enjoy a meal with residents of the infirmary.

Members of the community would donate Christmas gifts, local musicians would play for the elderly, and ice cream socials were held – all to help improve the lives of those housed there.

Still, stories of suicide and violence persist, as life at the poorhouse was difficult – too many people with a variety of problems all living under one roof often proves to be disastrous.

The infirmary remained in operation until May 1985, when the final sixteen residents were moved to local nursing facilities or foster homes.

The facility was remodeled in 1986 and the county offices were moved there after safety measures were taken, including the installation of fire alarms, sprinklers and emergency lighting.

It was then renamed the Clarence E. Miller Building after the former congressman, and the county health department continued to operate in the building until 2013, even though the structure was in complete disrepair by 2011.

The building remains vacant today, welcoming only those brave enough to step through the doors and see if there may, in fact, still be some former residents still lingering there…

The #Haunted Old Colorado Prison Museum Ghost Hunt | Canon City, Colorado

The only thing more terrifying than “doing time” in prison is being surrounded by 140 years of frustrated spirits that are still waiting to be released. The Museum of Colorado Prisons is not only haunted by the inmates whose artifacts have been placed on display but also by the women who had the unfortunate opportunity to reside within the cells of its building.

Each and everyone one of the spirits is waiting patiently for guests to hear the painstaking stories of an imprisoned life. Known as one of the most haunted locations in Colorado, paranormal investigators from all around the country and world have flocked to Cañon City to seek out evidence and experiences of inmates who have crossed beyond the veil.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons opened in June of 1988 after devoted and concerned Fremont County residents realized their vision of documenting over 140 years of prison life in the state of Colorado. Among the haunted exhibits and displays are that such as the old office furniture used by former Warden Roy Best, documentation the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947, and items belonging to both Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

With over a century of trapped souls and haunted objects on display throughout the building, it’s understandable that the paranormal community is fascinated with the Museum of Colorado Prisons. Orbs floating, screams that shatter the silence, soft and loud sobs that tear at your heart, the smell of tobacco wafting through the corridors, inexplicable cold spots, shadow figures lurking within the cells, disembodied female voices harassing male guests, bone-chilling EVPs (electronic voice phenomena,) full-bodied apparitions, the appearance of a trickster spirit, objects moving of their own volition, lights flashing on and off, cell doors slamming shut…the imprint made by the artifacts and former inmates leaves mounds of evidence and experiences for the living to relate to and be terrified of the formerly imprisoned!

The only question that truly remains is…will you be brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in Cell 19 that is said to be haunted by a female prisoner that died inside? She may have more than simply a message from the other side waiting for you!

In the 1980s, a group of Fremont County residents envisioned the preservation of the history of the Colorado Prison System in order to educate the public, memorialize the evolution in prison system and deter criminal activity. With the approval of the Colorado State Legislature on April 24, 1986, the vision became a reality with the birth of The Museum of Colorado Prisons.

The uniqueness of the museum lies not only in its attention to detail in cataloguing artifacts of over a century worth of criminal activity but also in the building itself. In 1935, the facility was constructed as the Women’s Prison Building which housed the female prison population until the late 1970s.

Although the living women are no longer residing on the premises, there are inmates just a stone throw away. The building shares a wall and armed towers with a prison that has been active since 1871. One can imagine that the residual energy of former inmates coupled with the vibe of the current prisoners contributes to the stories and evidence of paranormal activity on the property.

The artifacts displayed by the Museum of Colorado Prisons also bring a residual and eerie feeling to the building. They boast exhibits that span over 140 years of history of the prison system. The early territorial prison days leading up to modernized displays, each exhibit entertains and educates! The cell house itself spans two stories. The upper level has 30 inmate cells and office space while the lower level has the dining room, the trustee sleep area, original kitchen, isolation cells, and laundry room.

On the top floor, guests can move from cell to cell following the progression of the phases of life behind bars. These exhibits include displays such as the office furniture of former Warden Roy Best, documentation and information about the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947. They also feature infamous inmates like Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons is a wealth of information, displays and exhibits that document punishments, crimes and the daily lives of both inmates and guards within the Colorado Prisons for over a century.

The structure was built in 1917 when it was first established as Gooding College. At the time, Gooding College was the only place of higher education in Idaho in between Caldwell and Pocatello. However, the school shut down in 1938.

The structure opened back up in the 1940s when it was converted into a tuberculosis hospital. It was considered one of the most advanced hospitals to specialize in TB in the entire country during its time but it closed down officially in 1976.

After remaining empty for many decades, the structure opened back up in 2004. This time, it was known as "The Get Inn Bed and Breakfast".

Fairfield County Infirmary1587 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130-1038, United StatesLancaster, OH43130-1038 Location Map

The haunted Fairfield County Infirmary is a haven for the paranormal. Our overnight Ghost Hunt at this location will definitely test your nerve.

The Fairfield Infirmary harbors some dark secrets, and once you venture off into the former morgue, you’ll soon understand why this location has the haunted reputation that it does.

The embedded residual energy still lingers in these very walls!

The Paranormal:

With a long history consisting of over 170 years of serving the less fortunate in the community, this formidable brick building may hold more than history in its walls.

Some argue that the spirits of residents past still roam the halls. From a ghost named “Willy” who is said to haunt the second and third floors, to an entity of a little girl named “Susie” who may be lonely and looking for a playmate only to vanish into thin air, former employees claim this building is full of paranormal activity.

Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and slamming doors, smelling lavender perfume, and witnessing objects move seemingly on their own.

Perhaps the spirit of Jane Householder, an elderly woman who was burned to death when her clothing caught on fire from a gas stove, will make herself known and want to share her story with you.

Or maybe the former superintendent accused of abusing the residents who worked the fields is still hanging around – believing he is still in charge.

Prior investigations of this facility have proven to be active and hair-raising with reports of uncomfortable and uneasy feelings in the basement, slamming of the cell door on the third floor, a 7-foot dark shadow figure dwelling in the attic, and EVPs have been captured throughout the property.

Equipment failure or malfunction and unexplained banging often occurs, rattling even the most experienced ghost hunter.

Join us for a night of exploration and investigation of the Fairfield County Infirmary – as well as the cemetery full of unmarked graves situated behind the building. Do you dare? Are you ready to engage in a lone vigil in the basement where the makeshift morgue held bodies of those who died during the winters? Or in the jail-like area used to contain “problem” residents with the barred door closing you in? What about Room 322 – notorious for its reports of sightings of apparitions and physical interactions between entities and the living who have the courage to visit? There’s only one way to find out if you have what it takes…

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Old Montana Prison Ghost Hunt | Deer Lodge, Montana | We have exclusive overnight access to this very #haunted location in Montana.

This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures

We have access to the most haunted areas including the Death Tower, The Administration House, The Clark Theatre, Maximum Security, The Hole and The Chapel.

The darkness, pain and sinister suffering is still embedded into the walls of this very haunted prison. Old Montana State Prison has a haunted reputation that will send a shiver down your spine.

On April 16th, 1959, Jerry Myles and Lee Smart led twelve inmates in a riot which left Deputy Warden Ted Rothe dead. They took eighteen prison employees and five stool pigeon inmates as hostages, soaked rags with flammable liquid and threatened to burn them alive.

After thirty-six hours of mounting tension, Warden Floyd Powell implemented a daring rescue attempt. The National Guard fired a bazooka at the tower where the ringleaders were headquartered. Meanwhile, a team of men burst through the door in the west wall, crossed the yard, and entered the Cell House, freeing the hostages.

Myles and Smart were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide at the top floor of the tower, is it these two lovers that still haunt the Death Tower?

Your time will be spent ghost hunting in the most active areas and we have exclusive overnight access to the main key areas of this prison.

Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices and items being thrown is just a small amount of the reported paranormal experiences captured here.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed in the prison.

Not all the inmates were so violent however, and one was down right liked by the guards and prisoners. At the age of 40, Pete Eitner was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in 1918.

A model prisoner, he was assigned to tend to the prison turkeys and soon garnered the nickname of "Turkey Pete." As he aged, he began to lose some of his mental facilities and when a man stopped one day to admire his turkeys, Eitner sold him the entire flock for 25 cents each. This ended his turkey tending days, but that was ok, because he soon fantasized a new "job" as the owner and administrator of the prison. Prison officials humored him, "allowing" Eitner to "run" the prison from his cell. Fake checks were printed for him, with which he paid the prison expenses and payroll. He would also tell anyone who would listen that he had the coffee crop in Brazil one year, sold pink alligators, ships to the navy, and grasshopper legs to Fidel Castro.

When Turkey Pete died in 1967 at age 89, his cell (#1) was retired. His funeral was the only one ever held within the walls of the prison. Today, Cell #1 displays photos of Turkey Pete, as well as his few belongings.

Inside the prison walls, construction also continued with the building of a women’s prison, additional dormitories for the men, a store building, laundry, and dining room. In 1919, a 1,000 seat prison theater was built with funding donated by Senator William A. Clark, Jr.

Protests from labor unions and security concerns put an end to outside work in the 1920s; however, food production continued at the thirty-thousand-acre prison-owned ranch. Work inside the prison continued in various industries including cobbler and upholstery shops, and a garment industry that made clothes for state wards. A state license plate factory began production in the late 1920’s.

Though Conley’s administration made drastic improvements to the prison, it continually suffered from overcrowding through the decades.

On April 16, 1959, the prison suffered a major riot when two inmates by the names of Jerry Myles and Lee Smart, Jr. led some 12 inmates in an escape attempt. In the melee, Deputy Warden Theodore Rothe was shot and killed, and Warden Powell was temporarily held hostage.

The hostages were held for three days while the riot raged on. After the National Guard was brought in, the two ringleaders died in a murder-suicide, When Myles shot Smart and then turned the gun on himself.

Finally, the old and overcrowded prison was closed In 1979, and its prisoners moved to a new facility, five miles west of Deer Lodge.

Are you ready to explore the #haunted Madison Seminary, which was also once used as an Asylum.

The structures on this property date back to the mid-1800s, and the stories within these walls are waiting to be told. Rife with history, Madison Seminary has filled several different roles over the years, and countless people called it home. Question is, how many of them still roam the halls?

And are you ready to try to make contact with them? Maybe you’ll encounter Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy who worked for the Union, and find she still has something to say. Or perhaps any one of the many people who stayed here when it was a school, or a hospital for the mentally ill, or the vocational rehabilitation facility for the women’s prison?

Volunteers, visitors and paranormal investigators alike claim a wide range of activity at Madison Seminary, including knocking in response to questions, footsteps heard down empty hallways, and disembodied voices in their ears. Many people report they feel uncomfortable in certain areas and the distinct feeling of being watched. Seemingly intelligent interaction with investigation equipment is common; motion detectors going off in empty rooms, EVPs captured on recorders in response to questions, as well as equipment malfunction such as brand-new batteries being drained unexplainably.

Others say they have witnessed doors opening and closing on their own and lights turning on and off. It is not uncommon for people to assert they have been touched, their hair pulled, or their clothing tugged. More than once, visitors have maintained seeing a female apparition, or shadow figures lurking within these rooms. Often, the sound of children’s laughter can also be heard.

Madison Seminary is calling to you. Are you ready to try to communicate with the child spirits who still dwell here using the toys in “Sarah’s Room”? Spend some time in the basement and see who shows up. Stories abound on every floor of this historic institution. Come with us and see if you have what it takes to undertake a vigil in the top floor “asylum” – if you dare.

Consisting of two historic buildings – “The Ohio Cottage” and “The Civil War” building, Madison Seminary has a rich and varied history. The Civil War building consists of 23 rooms on three floors, measuring 6,120 square feet. The Ohio Cottage boasts 63 rooms comprised of 25,136 square feet.

The Ohio Cottage has served many purposes throughout its extensive history, but it was first constructed in the mid-1840s to provide a space for secondary education and housed Madison Seminary from 1847 until 1891. In 1859, the brick boarding hall was added to the east side of the building, which is now referred to as the Civil War building. Due to the rise of public education, the seminary closed its doors and the building was sold to the Ohio Women’s Relief Corps (WRC) in 1891.The structure was then renamed Madison Home. It offered assistance and a place to live for those women who were displaced by the Civil War, including mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers, as well as Army nurses. At this time, the west wing was added onto the building.

One of the building’s most famous residents was a woman named Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy working for the Union. Her husband was killed in front of her by Confederate sympathizers upon learning that Elizabeth was pro-Union. She was recruited by Abraham Lincoln to spy for the North until her identity became known in 1864. In 1865, she moved to the Madison Home and she died there in 1898.

However, in 1904, the WRC was no longer able to afford the upkeep on the property and it was donated to the State of Ohio, even though a part of the building continued to be used by WRC. The new name for the facility became the Home of the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Their Wives, Mothers, Widows and Army Nurses. The state maintained the building until 1962 as a home for military widows and veterans’ children in need. A one-story center section which connects the Ohio Cottage and the east wing was built in 1959.

When the Madison Home ran into financial difficulties in 1962, the property was acquired by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and the women who were residing there at the time were forced to live with relatives or sent to nursing homes.

The building was used to rehabilitate mentally ill patients from Cleveland State Hospital from 1962-1975, and it became part of Apple Creek Institution. At this time, the name of the building changed to Opportunity Village, and it was additionally used as a residence for women with milder forms of developmental disabilities. It was also briefly used as an extension to Cleveland State Hospital for elderly women suffering from dementia in 1964. In addition, inmates from the Ohio Women’s Reformatory in Marysville, Ohio who were model prisoners were allowed to live here and participate in vocational rehabilitation programs which taught them occupational skills to help them become productive members of the community. Due to funding problems, Opportunity Village was closed in April of 1975.

In 1977, Lake County purchased the property, and Madison Township leased it in 1978, using it for government offices until 1993. Part of the building was used by the local police station in the early 1990s. But from 1993 until 1998, the buildings remained vacant, perhaps because when the property was listed for rent, the ad stated: “can be leased cheap, caution – building may be haunted”. In 1998, it was sold to the owner of Cass-Mill Nurseries and it was used for storage and office space for several years. Madison Historical Society was allowed to use a portion of the building as a museum during this time.

In 2016, Adam Kimmell purchased the property and began to turn it into a virtual “time capsule” – filling the rooms with period furniture and protecting the beautiful details of the architecture. Since that time, he has worked diligently, along with the “MAD crew”, to preserve not only the buildings, but also the stories of those who lived and worked in this amazing, historic place.

Many of the volunteers and visitors will tell you that when you walk into Madison Seminary, you are walking into history – and that there is no shortage of spirits who are waiting to tell their stories and let you know you are not alone. Join us and see who you might meet within these walls. With so many souls passing through these doors over the past 170 years, there is sure to be someone waiting for you…

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Old Montana Prison Ghost Hunt | Deer Lodge, Montana | We have exclusive overnight access to this very #haunted location in Montana.

This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures

We have access to the most haunted areas including the Death Tower, The Administration House, The Clark Theatre, Maximum Security, The Hole and The Chapel.

The darkness, pain and sinister suffering is still embedded into the walls of this very haunted prison. Old Montana State Prison has a haunted reputation that will send a shiver down your spine.

On April 16th, 1959, Jerry Myles and Lee Smart led twelve inmates in a riot which left Deputy Warden Ted Rothe dead. They took eighteen prison employees and five stool pigeon inmates as hostages, soaked rags with flammable liquid and threatened to burn them alive.

After thirty-six hours of mounting tension, Warden Floyd Powell implemented a daring rescue attempt. The National Guard fired a bazooka at the tower where the ringleaders were headquartered. Meanwhile, a team of men burst through the door in the west wall, crossed the yard, and entered the Cell House, freeing the hostages.

Myles and Smart were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide at the top floor of the tower, is it these two lovers that still haunt the Death Tower?

Your time will be spent ghost hunting in the most active areas and we have exclusive overnight access to the main key areas of this prison.

Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices and items being thrown is just a small amount of the reported paranormal experiences captured here.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed in the prison.

Not all the inmates were so violent however, and one was down right liked by the guards and prisoners. At the age of 40, Pete Eitner was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in 1918.

A model prisoner, he was assigned to tend to the prison turkeys and soon garnered the nickname of "Turkey Pete." As he aged, he began to lose some of his mental facilities and when a man stopped one day to admire his turkeys, Eitner sold him the entire flock for 25 cents each. This ended his turkey tending days, but that was ok, because he soon fantasized a new "job" as the owner and administrator of the prison. Prison officials humored him, "allowing" Eitner to "run" the prison from his cell. Fake checks were printed for him, with which he paid the prison expenses and payroll. He would also tell anyone who would listen that he had the coffee crop in Brazil one year, sold pink alligators, ships to the navy, and grasshopper legs to Fidel Castro.

When Turkey Pete died in 1967 at age 89, his cell (#1) was retired. His funeral was the only one ever held within the walls of the prison. Today, Cell #1 displays photos of Turkey Pete, as well as his few belongings.

Inside the prison walls, construction also continued with the building of a women’s prison, additional dormitories for the men, a store building, laundry, and dining room. In 1919, a 1,000 seat prison theater was built with funding donated by Senator William A. Clark, Jr.

Protests from labor unions and security concerns put an end to outside work in the 1920s; however, food production continued at the thirty-thousand-acre prison-owned ranch. Work inside the prison continued in various industries including cobbler and upholstery shops, and a garment industry that made clothes for state wards. A state license plate factory began production in the late 1920’s.

Though Conley’s administration made drastic improvements to the prison, it continually suffered from overcrowding through the decades.

On April 16, 1959, the prison suffered a major riot when two inmates by the names of Jerry Myles and Lee Smart, Jr. led some 12 inmates in an escape attempt. In the melee, Deputy Warden Theodore Rothe was shot and killed, and Warden Powell was temporarily held hostage.

The hostages were held for three days while the riot raged on. After the National Guard was brought in, the two ringleaders died in a murder-suicide, When Myles shot Smart and then turned the gun on himself.

Finally, the old and overcrowded prison was closed In 1979, and its prisoners moved to a new facility, five miles west of Deer Lodge.

The Baladerry Inn was built as a farmhouse in 1812 on the outskirts of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania as part of the George Bushman farm. The picturesque countryside was an ideal location for agricultural growth but soon it would come to know the taste of blood. Ghost Adventures Gettysburg, Pennsylvania Pennsylvania

The fateful battle that would become a strong determining factor of the Civil War took place in the small town and fields of Gettysburg from July 1st-July 3rd of 1863. General Robert E. Lee had crushed the Union forces at Chancellorsville and began to advance his Army of Northern Virginia into Pennsylvania in the latter part of June of the same year. There he would clash with the Union Army of the Potomac led by General George G. Meade.

The bulk of both the Confederate and Union forces engaged in battle at the crossroads town of Gettysburg. The three days of fighting left heavy casualties on both sides. The Union Army lost 23,000 men while the Confederates lost upwards of 28,000. With the loss at Gettysburg, the Confederates lost the hope of foreign recognition of their cause and led General Lee to offer his resignation to President Jefferson Davis. The offer was declined but after the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Vicksburg, the Civil War was turned in the Union favor.

During these days of battle, the Baladerry Inn, like many other homes around the battlefields, served as a field hospital for wounded soldiers and civilians alike. The main hall was used to treat the soldiers where several amputations took place. You can imagine that with the lack of anesthesia and very little attention given to sterility, many soldiers met their demise. There was nothing but whiskey to dull the pain and infection ran rampant amongst them.

Today, there is still a blood stain forever etched into the hardwood planks of the Baladerry Inn. Forensic methods using luminol and UV lighting has revealed the marks left by the Civil War soldiers so many years ago.

Today the Baladerry Inn serves as bed and breakfast with 10 rooms between the main house and the carriage house. Many of the original architectural structures are still standing such as the brick fireplace that is the central figure in the spacious Great Room. Although it is a relaxing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the world, you should know that you rarely sleep alone.

There are many spirits that still linger around the Baladerry Inn. Those most often seen are the Confederate Soldiers that died in and around the property. Perhaps you will have the great fortune of meeting one of the Southern Gentlemen and hearing the tales of when cotton was high and the hopes of a nation died on a battlefield in a northern crossroads town.

Ghost hunting #haunted Is This Paranormal

The Glore Psychiatric Museum in St. Joseph, Missouri satisfies the intriguing lure of the Lunatic Asylums of the 19th and 20th Century. Listed as one of the top 50 unique museums in the world and one of the most haunted locations in Missouri, the museum is housed in the state’s former lunatic asylum where the patients still linger in the shadows!

The hauntings that have been documented and experienced in the museum started long before the St. Joseph’s State Hospital closed its doors and converted the corridors for educational purposes. With macabre devices and haunted objects on display, there is no doubt that the spirits are still lingering and just waiting to share their stories with you! Paranormal investigators from around the globe have flocked to the location to document the evolutionary history of mental illness treatment and communicate with those who were victims to their barbaric practices!

The facility opened in 1872 as the State Lunatic Asylum No. 2. Over the course of 127 years they expanded from 275 to 3,000 beds. The thousands of patients ranged from those who were diagnosed as criminally insane to those who were able to receive rehabilitating treatment and be reintegrated into society. Among those were the few unfortunate souls who were committed by their families because they “…had become lazy with [their] housework.”

All of the patients were submitted to state-of-the-art mental illness treatments that were considered helpful at the time but in retrospect we realize that some of these so-called treatments were often the cause and not the cure for insanity. Centrifuge therapy (spinning a patient in a device at high speeds), hydrotherapy (from ice baths that could last for days to scalding patients), cages used to contain patients until they “calmed down,” lobotomies, shock therapy, fever therapy (elevating body temperatures to abnormal levels, often used to treat syphilis which was rampant at the facility), tranquilizer chairs (strapping patients to a chair for weeks at a time using bloodletting with leaches and knives), and several other treatments that horrify our modern minds were all used at St. Joseph’s State Hospital.

The horrifying cures obviously left a terrified mark on the building, but other contributing factors may have led to the hauntings of the corridors. Many of the patients that were housed at the asylum never had visitors because their families simply abandoned them after they were committed. In the early years the graves of the patients were unmarked before they were simply engraved with an identifying number. Does the lack of acknowledgement in their final resting place leave the spirits feeling as unwanted in death as they felt in life?

Around the time George Glore started the display of historical artifacts in the evolution of mental illness treatments in 1967, St. Joseph’s State Hospital began to earn its reputation for being haunted. The staff would see shadow figures and apparitions roaming the hallways and always felt as if they were being watched. There was one patient who was known for her interaction with the “spirits” of the institution—she created art, wrote poems and songs detailing her experience with the paranormal activity.

If you’re investigating the morgue, watch for the full-bodied apparition of a man. He’s often been seen around the elevators and several investigators have caught an EVP (electronic voice phenomena) of a male voice screaming “GET OUT!” Disembodied whispering is often reported as well as a female voice calling out your name when no one else is around! Moaning, whimpering, crying—it’s easy to imagine that the sounds are patients still looking for someone who wants to be their friend.

The only question that remains—are you brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in the underground tunnels?

Ghost hunting #haunted Is This Paranormal

The Glore Psychiatric Museum in St. Joseph, Missouri satisfies the intriguing lure of the Lunatic Asylums of the 19th and 20th Century. Listed as one of the top 50 unique museums in the world and one of the most haunted locations in Missouri, the museum is housed in the state’s former lunatic asylum where the patients still linger in the shadows!

The hauntings that have been documented and experienced in the museum started long before the St. Joseph’s State Hospital closed its doors and converted the corridors for educational purposes. With macabre devices and haunted objects on display, there is no doubt that the spirits are still lingering and just waiting to share their stories with you! Paranormal investigators from around the globe have flocked to the location to document the evolutionary history of mental illness treatment and communicate with those who were victims to their barbaric practices!

The facility opened in 1872 as the State Lunatic Asylum No. 2. Over the course of 127 years they expanded from 275 to 3,000 beds. The thousands of patients ranged from those who were diagnosed as criminally insane to those who were able to receive rehabilitating treatment and be reintegrated into society. Among those were the few unfortunate souls who were committed by their families because they “…had become lazy with [their] housework.”

All of the patients were submitted to state-of-the-art mental illness treatments that were considered helpful at the time but in retrospect we realize that some of these so-called treatments were often the cause and not the cure for insanity. Centrifuge therapy (spinning a patient in a device at high speeds), hydrotherapy (from ice baths that could last for days to scalding patients), cages used to contain patients until they “calmed down,” lobotomies, shock therapy, fever therapy (elevating body temperatures to abnormal levels, often used to treat syphilis which was rampant at the facility), tranquilizer chairs (strapping patients to a chair for weeks at a time using bloodletting with leaches and knives), and several other treatments that horrify our modern minds were all used at St. Joseph’s State Hospital.

The horrifying cures obviously left a terrified mark on the building, but other contributing factors may have led to the hauntings of the corridors. Many of the patients that were housed at the asylum never had visitors because their families simply abandoned them after they were committed. In the early years the graves of the patients were unmarked before they were simply engraved with an identifying number. Does the lack of acknowledgement in their final resting place leave the spirits feeling as unwanted in death as they felt in life?

Around the time George Glore started the display of historical artifacts in the evolution of mental illness treatments in 1967, St. Joseph’s State Hospital began to earn its reputation for being haunted. The staff would see shadow figures and apparitions roaming the hallways and always felt as if they were being watched. There was one patient who was known for her interaction with the “spirits” of the institution—she created art, wrote poems and songs detailing her experience with the paranormal activity.

If you’re investigating the morgue, watch for the full-bodied apparition of a man. He’s often been seen around the elevators and several investigators have caught an EVP (electronic voice phenomena) of a male voice screaming “GET OUT!” Disembodied whispering is often reported as well as a female voice calling out your name when no one else is around! Moaning, whimpering, crying—it’s easy to imagine that the sounds are patients still looking for someone who wants to be their friend.

The only question that remains—are you brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in the underground tunnels?

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

White Hill Mansion Ghost Hunt

Friday June 4th, 2021, 8:30PM - Saturday June 5th, 2021, 4:00AM

Friends of White Hill Mansion217 4th StFieldsboro, NJ08505 Location Map

White Hill Mansion is one of the most #haunted locations in New Jersey. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed, captured and experienced here will leave you breathless.

A mansion filled with Secrets!

One of the most haunted locations in New Jersey is a home that is nearly 300 years old. The White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, bordello, speakeasy, restaurant, and office building throughout the course of its existence. The spirits that still lurk in the shadows are eager to share three centuries worth of secrets and it doesn’t take much effort to get them to speak! As featured on Paranormal Lockdown, the haunting of White Hill Mansion is known as one of the most active locations in the Northeast!


Robert Field II inherited White Hill from his father in 1757. Robert was deeply involved in the Colonial Efforts leading up to the Revolutionary War and suddenly died under mysterious circumstances by drowning in the Delaware River in 1775. Mary, his wife, was left to run the property and raise three young children during the war. Her neighbors gladly sold her out as a rebel sympathizer leading the British to seize the property and use it as temporary quarters. The troops that occupied White Hill were the Hessian Army (the German troops hired by the British to assist in the war). One of the most common paranormal experiences is the German accented voice coming from the attic. Could it be one of the troops that made themselves at home during the Revolutionary War? Or perhaps its Heinrich Glenk who opened an upscale German restaurant with his wife at White Hill in 1923?

Many guests that visit White Hill talk about seeing a shadow figure that lurks around the basement. The figure creeps up next to people and then slinks back into the darkness. He has no respect for personal space. Others report disembodied voices, the sounds of children playing, footsteps up and down the stairs, EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of a talkative woman who claims to be a former servant, a full-bodied apparition of a woman that many believe to be Mary Field watching sternly over the house, lights turning on and off of their own volition, objects being moved and hidden, a spirit that tugs on people’s clothing, a lighthearted prankster that enjoys toying with guests—the White Hill Mansion is a paranormal enthusiasts’ dream!

Over the centuries, White Hill Mansion has served as a family home, housed rum smugglers during prohibition, served as a bordello and speakeasy, a restaurant for over 50 years, an office building and now as a beacon of history full of secrets. During the restoration of White Hill, they conducted two archaeological digs that uncovered 30,000 artifacts leading to the speculation that the property itself was built on an ancient Native American settlement. With all of the history, it’s no wonder that White Hill is one of the most haunted houses in New Jersey.

The only question that remains—will you be brave enough to encounter the shadow man!?!?

Location History:

In 1722, Robert Field acquired White Hill and began construction of a home on the property. His son, aptly named Robert Field, inherited the property in 1757 where he lived with his wife and three small children before mysteriously drowning in the Delaware River on January 29, 1775. His wife, Mary, was left to run the 600 acres and raise their children during the tumultuous Revolutionary War.

Several of her neighbors were British sympathizers who jumped at the opportunity to curry favor with the Brits by reporting Mary as a colonialist. The rumors were supported by evidence of Captain Houston of the American Navy docking at White Hill and having dinner with Mary and her family. Of course, her support of the colonials led to the British Army seizing her home and searching the property for rebels in December of 1776. Captain Wrenden of the Hessian army (the German troops hired by the British during the Revolutionary War) decided to use White Hill as his temporary quarters and during his stay the Hessian Colonel Carl von Donop paid Mary a visit. Her hospitality, albeit forced upon her, helped to preserve White Hill throughout the duration of the war.

After the war, in 1779, Mary remarried Commodore Thomas Read who named White Hill his County Seat. The two lived happily together until his death at White Hill in 1788. Mary, widowed twice, remained in charge of the property until she signed it over to her son in 1797. Robert III’s ownership of the estate was short lived as he lost White Hill in 1804. His wife, Abigail nee Stockton, had a caring brother that wanted to preserve his family’s reputation. In doing so, he purchased White Hill and allowed Robert and Abigail to continue to live on the property.

Throughout the 19th century, White Hill had several owners. David Bruce, an inventor, created a typesetting machine in 1832 while living on the estate. Senator Isaac Field then purchased White Hill in 1847. Another inventor, Joseph Mayer, purchased the home in 1885 and developed several pottery techniques while living on the property. Several families lived, loved and died at White Hill but the 20th century would prove to attract even more people to the home.

In 1923, Heinrich and Katrina Glenk opened a German Restaurant at White Hill that catered to upscale clientele. They would remain for fifty years serving the people of the Borough of Fieldsboro before another family purchased the home. In 1991, the Stepan Company acquired White Hill but in 1999 they planned to demolish it. The Borough, in an effort to preserve history, bought White Hill and began the renovation process.

For well over 200 years, White Hill has been the home to doctors, inventors, entrepreneurs, Senators, and rum smugglers during the days of prohibition. A family home, a bordello, a speakeasy, a restaurant…the stories that White Hill Mansion can tell are secretly hiding within its walls. The only way to hear them is to visit White Hill and listen for yourself!

Bobby Mackey's Music World44 Licking PikeWilder, KY Location Map

Reported to be one of America's Most Haunted locations in Kentucky. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures. The Paranormal Activity that has been witnessed and captured here will send a shiver down your spine.

When the lights go out and you venture downstairs you will soon understand that this location has a dark, sinister past. Many paranormal teams and television programs have investigated this Honky Tonk and few have left without the firm belief that the basement holds the gateway to hell!

Is This Paranormal Only In Your State Ghost hunting #haunted

The harrowing history eludes to the blood of innocence soiling the earth creating an unholy presence that lurks in the shadows. The evidence captured, the paranormal occurrences witnessed and experiences of investigators tell a story of the twisted and dark past.A staircase near the well of the old slaughterhouse has been deemed "the stairs that lead to nowhere" by investigators and phantom footsteps are often heard by those who dare to venture into the basement.

Testimonies of a former caretaker that resided in the apartment upstairs speak of demonic possession. The incident was so harrowing that the Church intervened and performed an exorcism in the club!

Patron's of Bobby Mackey's have reported experiencing suffocating heat, flying trashcans and hearing a man chanting in Latin, "Die game, die game." (English translation: dying well/good)

Janet Mackey (Bobby's wife) claimed to have been overcome by the scent of roses in the basement (associated with the ghost of Johanna and her perfume), grabbed around the waist, picked up, thrown down and pushed down the stairs by force by something that resembled sketches of murderer Alonzo Walling, screaming, "Get out! Get out!" After this traumatic experience, she refused to set foot in the club.

This location is one that promises not to disappoint. From the land's association with Satanic Cultic practices to the murder and death that has tragically occurred time and again - the spirits are restless and ready to share their stories. The only question that remains - will you be brave enough to venture into the gateway to hell?

Much of the history of Bobby Mackey’s Music World is wrapped in legend and folklore but most who visit this Honky Tonk can attest to the strange happenings in this gateway to hell.

As it is told, the land once played host to a slaughterhouse around the 1850’s. More than half a century before Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle exposed the unsanitary and inhumane practices of such places – the carnage was simply dumped into a well in the basement. Many have looked at this act as unintentional but still very bloody animal sacrifice.

After the closing of the slaughterhouse in the 1890’s the legend takes a darker turn. The rumor that has the most legs is that a Satanic Cult occupied the land sacrificing more than just animals.

Probably the most horrifying account is of 22-year-old Pearl Bryan who was found murdered in 1896. Her headless body was found in a field near the land where the George Dobson Distillery now sat.

When Pearl discovered she was pregnant, her boyfriend Scott Jackson and his roommate Alonzo Walling attempted to abort the fetus on their own. After all, a student at the Ohio College of Dental Surgery would surely know how to perform the procedure, right? Wrong. As you can imagine, things did not go so well and Pearl died. They attempted to cover up their actions by decapitating her and abandoning her body. Many believe the only reason they were caught is because they didn’t remove her shoes.

During the 1920’s a new building was erected on the land. Prohibition was in full force and the people of Wilder, Kentucky had their own dark little speakeasy. As with most of these establishments, the end of prohibition did not bring an end to the mobsters that had taken advantage of an easy market.

In 1933, E.A. “Buck” Brady purchased the club and renamed it “Primrose.” His casino’s success was noticed by the mob of Cincinnati who tried to muscle their way into his establishment. Brady refused to be intimidated, pulling a gun on Albert “Red” Masterson. Soon after he was charged with attempted murder and left his business in 1946.

The Cleveland Syndicate reopened the location as a nightclub in the 1950’s called the “Latin Quarter.” His daughter, Johanna is rumored to have fallen in love with and become pregnant by one of the nightclub singers, Robert Randall. The young lovers had intended to run off together but her father refused to allow the romance to happen and had the young man killed. Johanna, mourning her lovers’ death, poisoned her father and then took her own life in the basement.

The nightclub was closed in the late 70’s after several fatal shootings. But later the same year, Bobby Mackey, a young up and coming country singer, bought the building and so began the legendary journey of Bobby Mackey’s Music World.

Old Montana Prison Complex1106 Main StDeer Lodge, MT59722 Location Map

Old Montana Prison Ghost Hunt | Deer Lodge, Montana | We have exclusive overnight access to this very #haunted location in Montana.

This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures

We have access to the most haunted areas including the Death Tower, The Administration House, The Clark Theatre, Maximum Security, The Hole and The Chapel.

The darkness, pain and sinister suffering is still embedded into the walls of this very haunted prison. Old Montana State Prison has a haunted reputation that will send a shiver down your spine.

On April 16th, 1959, Jerry Myles and Lee Smart led twelve inmates in a riot which left Deputy Warden Ted Rothe dead. They took eighteen prison employees and five stool pigeon inmates as hostages, soaked rags with flammable liquid and threatened to burn them alive.

After thirty-six hours of mounting tension, Warden Floyd Powell implemented a daring rescue attempt. The National Guard fired a bazooka at the tower where the ringleaders were headquartered. Meanwhile, a team of men burst through the door in the west wall, crossed the yard, and entered the Cell House, freeing the hostages.

Myles and Smart were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide at the top floor of the tower, is it these two lovers that still haunt the Death Tower?

Your time will be spent ghost hunting in the most active areas and we have exclusive overnight access to the main key areas of this prison.

Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices and items being thrown is just a small amount of the reported paranormal experiences captured here.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed in the prison.

Not all the inmates were so violent however, and one was down right liked by the guards and prisoners. At the age of 40, Pete Eitner was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in 1918.

A model prisoner, he was assigned to tend to the prison turkeys and soon garnered the nickname of "Turkey Pete." As he aged, he began to lose some of his mental facilities and when a man stopped one day to admire his turkeys, Eitner sold him the entire flock for 25 cents each. This ended his turkey tending days, but that was ok, because he soon fantasized a new "job" as the owner and administrator of the prison. Prison officials humored him, "allowing" Eitner to "run" the prison from his cell. Fake checks were printed for him, with which he paid the prison expenses and payroll. He would also tell anyone who would listen that he had the coffee crop in Brazil one year, sold pink alligators, ships to the navy, and grasshopper legs to Fidel Castro.

When Turkey Pete died in 1967 at age 89, his cell (#1) was retired. His funeral was the only one ever held within the walls of the prison. Today, Cell #1 displays photos of Turkey Pete, as well as his few belongings.

Inside the prison walls, construction also continued with the building of a women’s prison, additional dormitories for the men, a store building, laundry, and dining room. In 1919, a 1,000 seat prison theater was built with funding donated by Senator William A. Clark, Jr.

Protests from labor unions and security concerns put an end to outside work in the 1920s; however, food production continued at the thirty-thousand-acre prison-owned ranch. Work inside the prison continued in various industries including cobbler and upholstery shops, and a garment industry that made clothes for state wards. A state license plate factory began production in the late 1920’s.

Though Conley’s administration made drastic improvements to the prison, it continually suffered from overcrowding through the decades.

On April 16, 1959, the prison suffered a major riot when two inmates by the names of Jerry Myles and Lee Smart, Jr. led some 12 inmates in an escape attempt. In the melee, Deputy Warden Theodore Rothe was shot and killed, and Warden Powell was temporarily held hostage.

The hostages were held for three days while the riot raged on. After the National Guard was brought in, the two ringleaders died in a murder-suicide, When Myles shot Smart and then turned the gun on himself.

Finally, the old and overcrowded prison was closed In 1979, and its prisoners moved to a new facility, five miles west of Deer Lodge.

Spend the night in one of the most haunted places in New York with the Ghost Hunts USA Team

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

Ashmore Estates Overnight Ghost Hunt. One of the most #haunted locations in Illinois. This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures and Only In Your State

This is a sleepover event.

Find out if the former residents of this former poor farm are still lingering in the dark corridors

Are you prepared to investigate one of the top three most haunted locations in Illinois? Do you have what it takes to encounter the spirits of those who may still be haunting the halls of this historic building? Join us, and see why a visit to Ashmore Estates may very well leave you feeling breathless…

Find out if the former residents of this former poor farm are still lingering in the dark corridors. Maybe you’ll face the spirits of past patients from the time when this building served as a psychiatric hospital. If you are brave enough to walk through the doors, you may find someone waiting to communicate with you.

The activity experienced on all three floors of this structure have caused some guests to flee, but other courageous souls have managed to stay through the night to recount their stories of being touched or awakened from their sleep by some unseen force.

Will you hear what some have reported as “cries of help” coming from seemingly empty rooms? Or maybe a whisper in your ear even though you think you’re alone? With over 100 reported deaths over the long history of this property, it’s no surprise that many people who stay here sense an incredible amount of residual energy remaining within these walls.

Wherever you venture throughout this location, you can be sure of one thing: you are never alone.

Location History:

Constructed as the new almshouse for the Coles County Poor Farm in 1916, the structure now known as Ashmore Estates cost just over $20,000 to build. It operated as poor house or county home until the late 1950s, serving the homeless, aged and mentally ill of the community who had no other place to go. It replaced the original almshouse which was built at the same location in 1857 but had fallen into disrepair and had become inhabitable. It was condemned in 1911 due to “vermin-infested walls,” “contaminated food,” as well as other factors.

From the time the construction of the new almshouse was completed in 1916 until February of 1959, countless people were forced to take up residence at this poor farm. And accordingly, many people died here. The county once maintained two small cemeteries nearby which hold the remains of between 60 and 100 people who were likely residents of the poor farm.

In 1959, Coles County sold the property to a corporation called Ashmore Estates, who opened and operated the building as a private psychiatric hospital. But by October of 1964, the hospital had to shut it doors due to the large amount of debt it had incurred. However, the building reopened as a facility to house state mental patients in 1965, and by 1968 there were 49 people in residence.

The property changed ownership again in July 1976 when Paul Swinford and Galen Martinie invested over $200,000 to bring the building up to code and to construct a modern addition to the original building. Construction began in 1977 but was not completed until sometime in the 1980s. Unfortunately, in 1986, all the residents had to be moved to other homes in the area because the financial losses incurred by the institution added up to more than $1.5 million. Swinford had partnered with Convalescent Management Associates so they could help manage the finances, but to no avail, as the county departments of Public Aid and Public Health would not issue the necessary licenses on a timely basis.

Up to 1990, the building sat abandoned, until once again Swinford, along with Corrections Corporation of America, attempted to resurrect it as a mental facility to treat and house teenage boys. But the zoning permit for the project was swiftly rejected. The building was once again abandoned. Soon, Ashmore Estates became notorious for rumors of being haunted, and became the subject of devastating vandalism.

Between 1998 and 2014, the property changed hands four times. Over the years, the various owners attempted to renovate and restore the building, and at one point it was used as a haunted house attraction. However, the current owners are credited with many of the safety and preservation improvements made to the building including a new roof, a kitchenette, and the installation of bathrooms. It is now being preserved for its historical significance and used for paranormal investigations.

So now that you know the long and complicated history of this intriguing place, are you ready to join us and find out which spirits may still be calling it home?

Madison Seminary Ghost Hunt

Madison Seminary Ghost Hunt

Friday July 9th, 2021, 8:30PM - Saturday July 10th, 2021, 4:00AM

Madison Seminary6769 Middle Ridge RdMadison, OH44057 Location Map

Are you ready to explore the #haunted Madison Seminary, which was also once used as an Asylum.

The structures on this property date back to the mid-1800s, and the stories within these walls are waiting to be told. Rife with history, Madison Seminary has filled several different roles over the years, and countless people called it home. Question is, how many of them still roam the halls?

And are you ready to try to make contact with them? Maybe you’ll encounter Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy who worked for the Union, and find she still has something to say. Or perhaps any one of the many people who stayed here when it was a school, or a hospital for the mentally ill, or the vocational rehabilitation facility for the women’s prison?

Volunteers, visitors and paranormal investigators alike claim a wide range of activity at Madison Seminary, including knocking in response to questions, footsteps heard down empty hallways, and disembodied voices in their ears. Many people report they feel uncomfortable in certain areas and the distinct feeling of being watched. Seemingly intelligent interaction with investigation equipment is common; motion detectors going off in empty rooms, EVPs captured on recorders in response to questions, as well as equipment malfunction such as brand-new batteries being drained unexplainably.

Others say they have witnessed doors opening and closing on their own and lights turning on and off. It is not uncommon for people to assert they have been touched, their hair pulled, or their clothing tugged. More than once, visitors have maintained seeing a female apparition, or shadow figures lurking within these rooms. Often, the sound of children’s laughter can also be heard.

Madison Seminary is calling to you. Are you ready to try to communicate with the child spirits who still dwell here using the toys in “Sarah’s Room”? Spend some time in the basement and see who shows up. Stories abound on every floor of this historic institution. Come with us and see if you have what it takes to undertake a vigil in the top floor “asylum” – if you dare.

Consisting of two historic buildings – “The Ohio Cottage” and “The Civil War” building, Madison Seminary has a rich and varied history. The Civil War building consists of 23 rooms on three floors, measuring 6,120 square feet. The Ohio Cottage boasts 63 rooms comprised of 25,136 square feet.

The Ohio Cottage has served many purposes throughout its extensive history, but it was first constructed in the mid-1840s to provide a space for secondary education and housed Madison Seminary from 1847 until 1891. In 1859, the brick boarding hall was added to the east side of the building, which is now referred to as the Civil War building. Due to the rise of public education, the seminary closed its doors and the building was sold to the Ohio Women’s Relief Corps (WRC) in 1891.The structure was then renamed Madison Home. It offered assistance and a place to live for those women who were displaced by the Civil War, including mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers, as well as Army nurses. At this time, the west wing was added onto the building.

One of the building’s most famous residents was a woman named Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy working for the Union. Her husband was killed in front of her by Confederate sympathizers upon learning that Elizabeth was pro-Union. She was recruited by Abraham Lincoln to spy for the North until her identity became known in 1864. In 1865, she moved to the Madison Home and she died there in 1898.

However, in 1904, the WRC was no longer able to afford the upkeep on the property and it was donated to the State of Ohio, even though a part of the building continued to be used by WRC. The new name for the facility became the Home of the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Their Wives, Mothers, Widows and Army Nurses. The state maintained the building until 1962 as a home for military widows and veterans’ children in need. A one-story center section which connects the Ohio Cottage and the east wing was built in 1959.

When the Madison Home ran into financial difficulties in 1962, the property was acquired by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and the women who were residing there at the time were forced to live with relatives or sent to nursing homes.

The building was used to rehabilitate mentally ill patients from Cleveland State Hospital from 1962-1975, and it became part of Apple Creek Institution. At this time, the name of the building changed to Opportunity Village, and it was additionally used as a residence for women with milder forms of developmental disabilities. It was also briefly used as an extension to Cleveland State Hospital for elderly women suffering from dementia in 1964. In addition, inmates from the Ohio Women’s Reformatory in Marysville, Ohio who were model prisoners were allowed to live here and participate in vocational rehabilitation programs which taught them occupational skills to help them become productive members of the community. Due to funding problems, Opportunity Village was closed in April of 1975.

In 1977, Lake County purchased the property, and Madison Township leased it in 1978, using it for government offices until 1993. Part of the building was used by the local police station in the early 1990s. But from 1993 until 1998, the buildings remained vacant, perhaps because when the property was listed for rent, the ad stated: “can be leased cheap, caution – building may be haunted”. In 1998, it was sold to the owner of Cass-Mill Nurseries and it was used for storage and office space for several years. Madison Historical Society was allowed to use a portion of the building as a museum during this time.

In 2016, Adam Kimmell purchased the property and began to turn it into a virtual “time capsule” – filling the rooms with period furniture and protecting the beautiful details of the architecture. Since that time, he has worked diligently, along with the “MAD crew”, to preserve not only the buildings, but also the stories of those who lived and worked in this amazing, historic place.

Many of the volunteers and visitors will tell you that when you walk into Madison Seminary, you are walking into history – and that there is no shortage of spirits who are waiting to tell their stories and let you know you are not alone. Join us and see who you might meet within these walls. With so many souls passing through these doors over the past 170 years, there is sure to be someone waiting for you…

In the 1930s, this 740-acre campus was turned into the New York State Training School for Boys, a facility which housed “troubled” young men, where they were trained or “reformed” so that they may one day go back into the community with productive work skills. Eventually, as many as 14 “shops” were built for training, and many of these at-risk youth also worked the farmland. However, there are many stories of horrifying abuse and neglect surrounding the school, which held between 400 and 500 boys at one time.

Some reports suggest that the boys’ school became a violent place, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, including forms of corporeal punishment as well as stabbings and numerous attempted suicides. There are reports of a young man named Charles McBride who succeeded by hanging himself with his bedsheet in Cottage B1 on October 23, 1962. Medical records from that time also show that several residents required surgery for appendicitis – suspected to be due to the physical abuse they endured while living at the school.

The #Haunted Old Colorado Prison Museum Ghost Hunt | Canon City, Colorado

The only thing more terrifying than “doing time” in prison is being surrounded by 140 years of frustrated spirits that are still waiting to be released. The Museum of Colorado Prisons is not only haunted by the inmates whose artifacts have been placed on display but also by the women who had the unfortunate opportunity to reside within the cells of its building.

Each and everyone one of the spirits is waiting patiently for guests to hear the painstaking stories of an imprisoned life. Known as one of the most haunted locations in Colorado, paranormal investigators from all around the country and world have flocked to Cañon City to seek out evidence and experiences of inmates who have crossed beyond the veil.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons opened in June of 1988 after devoted and concerned Fremont County residents realized their vision of documenting over 140 years of prison life in the state of Colorado. Among the haunted exhibits and displays are that such as the old office furniture used by former Warden Roy Best, documentation the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947, and items belonging to both Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

With over a century of trapped souls and haunted objects on display throughout the building, it’s understandable that the paranormal community is fascinated with the Museum of Colorado Prisons. Orbs floating, screams that shatter the silence, soft and loud sobs that tear at your heart, the smell of tobacco wafting through the corridors, inexplicable cold spots, shadow figures lurking within the cells, disembodied female voices harassing male guests, bone-chilling EVPs (electronic voice phenomena,) full-bodied apparitions, the appearance of a trickster spirit, objects moving of their own volition, lights flashing on and off, cell doors slamming shut…the imprint made by the artifacts and former inmates leaves mounds of evidence and experiences for the living to relate to and be terrified of the formerly imprisoned!

The only question that truly remains is…will you be brave enough to undergo a lone vigil in Cell 19 that is said to be haunted by a female prisoner that died inside? She may have more than simply a message from the other side waiting for you!

In the 1980s, a group of Fremont County residents envisioned the preservation of the history of the Colorado Prison System in order to educate the public, memorialize the evolution in prison system and deter criminal activity. With the approval of the Colorado State Legislature on April 24, 1986, the vision became a reality with the birth of The Museum of Colorado Prisons.

The uniqueness of the museum lies not only in its attention to detail in cataloguing artifacts of over a century worth of criminal activity but also in the building itself. In 1935, the facility was constructed as the Women’s Prison Building which housed the female prison population until the late 1970s.

Although the living women are no longer residing on the premises, there are inmates just a stone throw away. The building shares a wall and armed towers with a prison that has been active since 1871. One can imagine that the residual energy of former inmates coupled with the vibe of the current prisoners contributes to the stories and evidence of paranormal activity on the property.

The artifacts displayed by the Museum of Colorado Prisons also bring a residual and eerie feeling to the building. They boast exhibits that span over 140 years of history of the prison system. The early territorial prison days leading up to modernized displays, each exhibit entertains and educates! The cell house itself spans two stories. The upper level has 30 inmate cells and office space while the lower level has the dining room, the trustee sleep area, original kitchen, isolation cells, and laundry room.

On the top floor, guests can move from cell to cell following the progression of the phases of life behind bars. These exhibits include displays such as the office furniture of former Warden Roy Best, documentation and information about the Prison Riots of 1929 and 1947. They also feature infamous inmates like Alfred Packer who was convicted of cannibalism and Antone Woode who was convicted of murder as a 12-year-old boy.

The Museum of Colorado Prisons is a wealth of information, displays and exhibits that document punishments, crimes and the daily lives of both inmates and guards within the Colorado Prisons for over a century.

Madison Seminary6769 Middle Ridge RdMadison, OH44057 Location Map

Are you ready to explore the #haunted Madison Seminary, which was also once used as an Asylum.

The structures on this property date back to the mid-1800s, and the stories within these walls are waiting to be told. Rife with history, Madison Seminary has filled several different roles over the years, and countless people called it home. Question is, how many of them still roam the halls?

And are you ready to try to make contact with them? Maybe you’ll encounter Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy who worked for the Union, and find she still has something to say. Or perhaps any one of the many people who stayed here when it was a school, or a hospital for the mentally ill, or the vocational rehabilitation facility for the women’s prison?

Volunteers, visitors and paranormal investigators alike claim a wide range of activity at Madison Seminary, including knocking in response to questions, footsteps heard down empty hallways, and disembodied voices in their ears. Many people report they feel uncomfortable in certain areas and the distinct feeling of being watched. Seemingly intelligent interaction with investigation equipment is common; motion detectors going off in empty rooms, EVPs captured on recorders in response to questions, as well as equipment malfunction such as brand-new batteries being drained unexplainably.

Others say they have witnessed doors opening and closing on their own and lights turning on and off. It is not uncommon for people to assert they have been touched, their hair pulled, or their clothing tugged. More than once, visitors have maintained seeing a female apparition, or shadow figures lurking within these rooms. Often, the sound of children’s laughter can also be heard.

Madison Seminary is calling to you. Are you ready to try to communicate with the child spirits who still dwell here using the toys in “Sarah’s Room”? Spend some time in the basement and see who shows up. Stories abound on every floor of this historic institution. Come with us and see if you have what it takes to undertake a vigil in the top floor “asylum” – if you dare.

Consisting of two historic buildings – “The Ohio Cottage” and “The Civil War” building, Madison Seminary has a rich and varied history. The Civil War building consists of 23 rooms on three floors, measuring 6,120 square feet. The Ohio Cottage boasts 63 rooms comprised of 25,136 square feet.

The Ohio Cottage has served many purposes throughout its extensive history, but it was first constructed in the mid-1840s to provide a space for secondary education and housed Madison Seminary from 1847 until 1891. In 1859, the brick boarding hall was added to the east side of the building, which is now referred to as the Civil War building. Due to the rise of public education, the seminary closed its doors and the building was sold to the Ohio Women’s Relief Corps (WRC) in 1891.The structure was then renamed Madison Home. It offered assistance and a place to live for those women who were displaced by the Civil War, including mothers, wives and sisters of soldiers, as well as Army nurses. At this time, the west wing was added onto the building.

One of the building’s most famous residents was a woman named Elizabeth Stiles – a Civil War spy working for the Union. Her husband was killed in front of her by Confederate sympathizers upon learning that Elizabeth was pro-Union. She was recruited by Abraham Lincoln to spy for the North until her identity became known in 1864. In 1865, she moved to the Madison Home and she died there in 1898.

However, in 1904, the WRC was no longer able to afford the upkeep on the property and it was donated to the State of Ohio, even though a part of the building continued to be used by WRC. The new name for the facility became the Home of the Ohio Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Their Wives, Mothers, Widows and Army Nurses. The state maintained the building until 1962 as a home for military widows and veterans’ children in need. A one-story center section which connects the Ohio Cottage and the east wing was built in 1959.

When the Madison Home ran into financial difficulties in 1962, the property was acquired by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and the women who were residing there at the time were forced to live with relatives or sent to nursing homes.

The building was used to rehabilitate mentally ill patients from Cleveland State Hospital from 1962-1975, and it became part of Apple Creek Institution. At this time, the name of the building changed to Opportunity Village, and it was additionally used as a residence for women with milder forms of developmental disabilities. It was also briefly used as an extension to Cleveland State Hospital for elderly women suffering from dementia in 1964. In addition, inmates from the Ohio Women’s Reformatory in Marysville, Ohio who were model prisoners were allowed to live here and participate in vocational rehabilitation programs which taught them occupational skills to help them become productive members of the community. Due to funding problems, Opportunity Village was closed in April of 1975.

In 1977, Lake County purchased the property, and Madison Township leased it in 1978, using it for government offices until 1993. Part of the building was used by the local police station in the early 1990s. But from 1993 until 1998, the buildings remained vacant, perhaps because when the property was listed for rent, the ad stated: “can be leased cheap, caution – building may be haunted”. In 1998, it was sold to the owner of Cass-Mill Nurseries and it was used for storage and office space for several years. Madison Historical Society was allowed to use a portion of the building as a museum during this time.

In 2016, Adam Kimmell purchased the property and began to turn it into a virtual “time capsule” – filling the rooms with period furniture and protecting the beautiful details of the architecture.

Fairfield County Infirmary1587 Granville Pike, Lancaster, OH 43130-1038, United StatesLancaster, OH43130-1038 Location Map

The haunted Fairfield County Infirmary is a haven for the paranormal. Our overnight Ghost Hunt at this location will definitely test your nerve.

The Fairfield Infirmary harbors some dark secrets, and once you venture off into the former morgue, you’ll soon understand why this location has the haunted reputation that it does.

The embedded residual energy still lingers in these very walls!

The Paranormal:

With a long history consisting of over 170 years of serving the less fortunate in the community, this formidable brick building may hold more than history in its walls.

Some argue that the spirits of residents past still roam the halls. From a ghost named “Willy” who is said to haunt the second and third floors, to an entity of a little girl named “Susie” who may be lonely and looking for a playmate only to vanish into thin air, former employees claim this building is full of paranormal activity.

Visitors have reported hearing disembodied voices and slamming doors, smelling lavender perfume, and witnessing objects move seemingly on their own.

Perhaps the spirit of Jane Householder, an elderly woman who was burned to death when her clothing caught on fire from a gas stove, will make herself known and want to share her story with you.

Or maybe the former superintendent accused of abusing the residents who worked the fields is still hanging around – believing he is still in charge.

Prior investigations of this facility have proven to be active and hair-raising with reports of uncomfortable and uneasy feelings in the basement, slamming of the cell door on the third floor, a 7-foot dark shadow figure dwelling in the attic, and EVPs have been captured throughout the property.

Equipment failure or malfunction and unexplained banging often occurs, rattling even the most experienced ghost hunter.

Join us for a night of exploration and investigation of the Fairfield County Infirmary – as well as the cemetery full of unmarked graves situated behind the building. Do you dare? Are you ready to engage in a lone vigil in the basement where the makeshift morgue held bodies of those who died during the winters? Or in the jail-like area used to contain “problem” residents with the barred door closing you in? What about Room 322 – notorious for its reports of sightings of apparitions and physical interactions between entities and the living who have the courage to visit? There’s only one way to find out if you have what it takes…


Location History:

The property on which the current imposing brick structure consisting of 35,000 feet sits served the Fairfield County community for over 170 years.

In 1828, township officers charged with overseeing the poor and unfortunate contracted the construction of a wooden building just north of Lancaster, Ohio. It was soon filled to capacity, acting as a place where the destitute, mentally ill, physically disabled, elderly, and orphaned could receive food, clothing, shelter and medical care.

By 1840, the originally wood structure was replaced by a large brick building. Additions were made to the facility in 1865, both to the main building as well as constructing a number of outbuildings used for storage, tenants, laundry and farming. The working farm was located across the street and many residents worked the land to provide food for themselves and others housed at the infirmary.

In 1917, natural gas lines were run to the building to provide heat and lighting. Water pipes were laid in 1926, but electricity was not installed until 1958. A cemetery which stands behind the building is where paupers and residents without family to claim their bodies lie – and many of the graves are unmarked.

According to records, the number of individuals residing at the poorhouse in 1903 was 82, and they were “admitted” for several different reasons, including mental and physical health conditions that could not be managed by family members. There were many residents who spent most of their lives at the infirmary and who died there as well.

While some died from old age or their medical conditions, a few met their fate a bit more suddenly and tragically. One such story involves Jane Householder, a 73-year-old resident whose clothing caught on fire when she opened a gas stove. While attendants working at the infirmary were able to smother the fire, Ms. Householder survived her burns for only a few hours.

Stories persist that a former superintendent was particularly cruel to the residents of the poorhouse, reportedly beating them as they worked in the fields of the farm.

These punishments were witnessed by others in the community and reported, according to an article published in 1851 in the Lancaster Gazette.

The good Samaritans of the area effectively brought an end to the superintendent’s brutality, and the life of those residing at the poorhouse improved once the abuse ceased.

In fact, it is said that county officials would occasionally visit and enjoy a meal with residents of the infirmary.

Members of the community would donate Christmas gifts, local musicians would play for the elderly, and ice cream socials were held – all to help improve the lives of those housed there.

Still, stories of suicide and violence persist, as life at the poorhouse was difficult – too many people with a variety of problems all living under one roof often proves to be disastrous.

The infirmary remained in operation until May 1985, when the final sixteen residents were moved to local nursing facilities or foster homes.

The facility was remodeled in 1986 and the county offices were moved there after safety measures were taken, including the installation of fire alarms, sprinklers and emergency lighting.

It was then renamed the Clarence E. Miller Building after the former congressman, and the county health department continued to operate in the building until 2013, even though the structure was in complete disrepair by 2011.

The building remains vacant today, welcoming only those brave enough to step through the doors and see if there may, in fact, still be some former residents still lingering there…

Old Montana Prison Complex1106 Main StDeer Lodge, MT59722 Location Map

Old Montana Prison Ghost Hunt | Deer Lodge, Montana | We have exclusive overnight access to this very #haunted location in Montana.

This location was featured on Travel Channel Ghost Adventures

We have access to the most haunted areas including the Death Tower, The Administration House, The Clark Theatre, Maximum Security, The Hole and The Chapel.

The darkness, pain and sinister suffering is still embedded into the walls of this very haunted prison. Old Montana State Prison has a haunted reputation that will send a shiver down your spine.

On April 16th, 1959, Jerry Myles and Lee Smart led twelve inmates in a riot which left Deputy Warden Ted Rothe dead. They took eighteen prison employees and five stool pigeon inmates as hostages, soaked rags with flammable liquid and threatened to burn them alive.

After thirty-six hours of mounting tension, Warden Floyd Powell implemented a daring rescue attempt. The National Guard fired a bazooka at the tower where the ringleaders were headquartered. Meanwhile, a team of men burst through the door in the west wall, crossed the yard, and entered the Cell House, freeing the hostages.

Myles and Smart were found dead of an apparent murder-suicide at the top floor of the tower, is it these two lovers that still haunt the Death Tower?

Your time will be spent ghost hunting in the most active areas and we have exclusive overnight access to the main key areas of this prison.

Full bodied apparitions, disembodied voices and items being thrown is just a small amount of the reported paranormal experiences captured here.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed in the prison.

Not all the inmates were so violent however, and one was down right liked by the guards and prisoners. At the age of 40, Pete Eitner was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in 1918.

A model prisoner, he was assigned to tend to the prison turkeys and soon garnered the nickname of "Turkey Pete." As he aged, he began to lose some of his mental facilities and when a man stopped one day to admire his turkeys, Eitner sold him the entire flock for 25 cents each. This ended his turkey tending days, but that was ok, because he soon fantasized a new "job" as the owner and administrator of the prison. Prison officials humored him, "allowing" Eitner to "run" the prison from his cell. Fake checks were printed for him, with which he paid the prison expenses and payroll. He would also tell anyone who would listen that he had the coffee crop in Brazil one year, sold pink alligators, ships to the navy, and grasshopper legs to Fidel Castro.

When Turkey Pete died in 1967 at age 89, his cell (#1) was retired. His funeral was the only one ever held within the walls of the prison. Today, Cell #1 displays photos of Turkey Pete, as well as his few belongings.

Inside the prison walls, construction also continued with the building of a women’s prison, additional dormitories for the men, a store building, laundry, and dining room. In 1919, a 1,000 seat prison theater was built with funding donated by Senator William A. Clark, Jr.

Protests from labor unions and security concerns put an end to outside work in the 1920s; however, food production continued at the thirty-thousand-acre prison-owned ranch. Work inside the prison continued in various industries including cobbler and upholstery shops, and a garment industry that made clothes for state wards. A state license plate factory began production in the late 1920’s.

Though Conley’s administration made drastic improvements to the prison, it continually suffered from overcrowding through the decades.

On April 16, 1959, the prison suffered a major riot when two inmates by the names of Jerry Myles and Lee Smart, Jr. led some 12 inmates in an escape attempt. In the melee, Deputy Warden Theodore Rothe was shot and killed, and Warden Powell was temporarily held hostage.

Will you be brave enough to venture a lone vigil in the depths of darkness that swirl around this former prison?!?

Like other fledgling territories in the 19th century American West, Montana had become wild when the gold rush attracted not only those wishing to find their fortunes, but also thieves, gamblers, and murderers. For several years following the gold discoveries of 1862, the Montana Vigilantes took it upon themselves to punish these many offenders in the lawless land of Montana. Finally, seeing a need for more organized forms of law enforcement, the Montana Territorial Legislature requested funds for a prison during its winter session of 1866-67. The United States Congress agreed that the territory needed a prison, approved the request for funding, and Deer Lodge was chosen for the site of the new Territorial Prison.

However, they soon found that the funding was inadequate causing revisions to the plans and many delays. Construction finally began in the spring of 1870 with convict labor, and the prison finally received its first convict on July 2, 1871.

Almost from the beginning, the prison was deemed inadequate and overcrowded, a condition that would result in slow, but continual construction at the prison for the next fifty years. When Montana became the forty-first state on November 8, 1889, the prison became Montana's responsibility. Finding it expensive to operate, the Board of Prison Commissioners contracted out the entire Prison operation in 1890. Colonel Thomas McTague and Frank Conley of Deer Lodge received the contract, which paid them seventy cents per prisoner per day.

Frank Conley became the new warden, a post that he would continue to hold until 1921. Over the next thirty years, Conley shaped the philosophy and appearance of the prison. Believing the prisoners should work, Conley began to update the prison by first replacing its twelve-foot wooden fence with the massive sandstone wall in 1893. Four and a half feet thick, the wall formed a solid perimeter for the prison. He also began to build a new log cell house to reduce the prison crowding.

As a further measure to reduce crowding, put the prisoners to work, and generate income from the prison, outside prison camps were established where prisoners would live and be "hired out” for both public and private work. This worked so well that by the late 1890’s approximately one-third of the prisoners worked outside the prison. At these camps, which housed about 75 prisoners each, inmates enjoyed a relatively high degree of freedom with neither chains nor cells restricting them. However, "outside work” was a privilege, and the slightest infraction of the rules would immediately send a prisoner back behind prison walls.

By the second decade of the twentieth century, about fifty percent of the inmates were working outside the penitentiary, traveling throughout Montana erecting numerous state buildings, paving more than five hundred miles of roads, and working on eleven different ranches that provided food for state-owned institutions.

In 1908, the prison witnessed one of its most tragic events when two prisoners by the names of George Rock and William Hayes attempted to escape. Fleeing from the Federal Building, their failed attempt resulted in the death of Deputy Warden John Robinson and Warden Frank Conley was required to get 103 stitches in his back and neck from stab wounds he received from the inmates. As a result, George Rock was hanged inside the prison yard that very year, and William Hayes met a similar fate the following year. They were the only inmates to be executed
