Cullowhee Valley School Haunted School

Cullowhee Valley School (Grades K-8) in Cullowhee, North Carolina was built on the site of a couple Native American villages, dating from five hundred years ago to several thousand years ago. The site was a village multiple times, as there would be one there that would get destroyed or abandoned and the people would move elsewhere. The site was a family homestead and farm from the mid-1800s up until the 1970s. When NC 107 was relocated in the 1980s, the old farmhouse was moved across the new road to a new site. The School itself was built in 1994, with site work preparation began in the late 1980s. They discovered serious erosion issues and uncovered the site of the ancient villages during the site work, and construction was postponed for two years. When it resumed, workers noticed strange things happening, tools disappearing and doing strange, erratic things. When the school first opened, there were many reports from students and faculty of strange occurrences, including lights flickering and turning on and off by themselves, technology behaving in an erratic manner, doors opening and closing by themselves, some rooms being impossible to heat or cool, toilets flushing, and the automatic air dryers going off by themselves. During a 6th Grade Band Concert in the late 1990s, the doors inside the locker rooms slammed open and closed by themselves spontaneously. When teachers investigated, they found the contents of the rooms scattered about and nobody inside. People at the school often feel like they are being watched and many teachers who stayed after school until late at night to do work for their classes often report seeing Native American people walking up or down the hallways of the school, dressed how they dressed before the settlers came. Since artifacts were returned to the building around 2000, the sightings have continued, but have decreased in intensity and frequency.

The witness said, “I am assured you that a lot of weird stuff did happened to students, parents, teachers and staff”

The Nell Cropsey House

Nell Crop House 6 12 2013

When my niece and I went for a ghost walk tour in Elizabeth City, NC, she did not know we have hauntings in our town.  Elizabeth City is a small town and it’s the Harbor of Hospitality. The beach is an hour away, the outer banks, but in Elizabeth City, NC we have the famous Nell Cropsey house and it is still haunted to this day.

We had a guest to tell a story of the house she was Janet Klein, a good friend of mines, we worked together for Encore, a community theater volunteer in town. She was not acting when she told this story to the group. It really happened.

“There are really spirits there in that house,” says Janet Klein. Klein says she has had plenty of experience with the Cropsey house. Sitting for friends who once owned the Victorian-era home, a very beautiful house and it had a creepy feeling of the house.

“I was house-sitting for Betsy when Betsy Jones lived there,” recalls Klein.

House sitting in a haunted house? Who would do this?

“I was taking the trash out to the road. This was in the evening or so. When I was coming back from the road the light in the attic flipped on. I went upstairs, looked around and cut the light off.”

Of course, Klein was the only one in the house, so how the light came on was hard to explain. Except, perhaps, if you believe in hauntings.

“The light in the attic was really creepy,” says Klein.

“Another time, there is a vent in the front hallway,” remembers Klein. “I had the doors open, the windows open. All of the sudden a whoosh of air came out of the vent. And then another time, I was in the kitchen. I was on the phone and it rang in the other room. It’s hard for a phone to ring when you’re on the phone.”

For Klein, and her friend Betsy Jones, there were plenty of other unexplained moments in that house. They were moments that led them to believe that indeed Nell Cropsey haunts the house where she was likely murdered.

Another eyewitness guest told their story and they were Frank and Robin Caruso who lived in the house for the past 15 years and their children.  He heard of the hauntings of Nell Cropsey and he once lived in a haunted house. He thought it would be great to live in a haunted house.

Who would live in a haunted house?

“If the house was haunted it didn’t bother me because when I was growing up my house was haunted,” says Caruso.

But the notion that the house was haunted did bug her children, especially one of her sons.

“The Scariest thing happened to my son,” recalls Caruso. “It was still and it felt weird (in the house). I heard a strange noise and it was my son, trying to let out a scream. He was 15 at the time. He yelled, ‘She was here, she was here!”

When Caruso ran to her son’s bedroom, he was on his bed, “pale as a ghost” and sweating. He clung to his mother in fear.

“Fifteen-year-olds don’t cling to their mothers,” says Caruso.

Her son told her that as he was sitting on his bed,  a young beautiful girl Nell Cropsey was at the foot of the bed. Shook the bed and then she fled out of the window.

“I know he saw something because he was very scared,” said Caruso.

And there have been other incidents in that house. There have been noises, doors opening and closing when no one was there.

At night we can hear people walking up the stairs, footsteps, and light flashing in the hallway.

“If I say, ‘Nell, knock it off,’ it stops,” says Caruso.

Caruso is confident that the Cropsey house is haunted. She says Nell seems to be happy there, and that there is really nothing to be afraid of while in the house.

She says since they moved in, members of the Cropsey family — living members — have come to call the house, and one even gave the family a plate that belonged to Nell’s mother.

More hauntings, sometimes spirits of dead relatives can attach themselves to artifacts. 

You will get goosebumps and possible cold air traveling in the house, even though their air conditioner and heating was off that evening. Her presence was in the house.  My niece and I got the chills in the house and so were the rest of the groups. We felt something in the house. Creepy.

Haunted Hollywood Sign

1923 - Hollywood Land
1923 – Hollywood Land

It was 1988 when Tina,16 year-old  worked at USC  and Alain, 20 year old college student and among his college friends Brian. They become a tight group of friends. Alain always looking out for Tina , she was the youngest

It was the night, they would not forget in Los Angeles. Hollywood.

One night after watching a baseball game at Dodger Stadium, the group wanted to cause some mischief so Brian suggested they all go up the hill and touch the Hollywood sign.

“When you’re that age, you always want to do something that is very nutty!” Brian recalls.

Tina and Al were all for it but Alain wasn’t too thrilled about it; in the end, he decided to join anyways. The group drove down in two separate cars down Sunset Blvd and were all excited to walk up to the iconic sign they have seen all their lives. They all parked at a dead end at the bottom of the hill. There was a chain link fence with a “No Trespassing” sign at the bottom of the hill, which Alain pointed out. But Brian and the rest knew that it was wrong, which made it much more enticing. The boys climbed over the fence. Tina wouldn’t climbed the fence because she was afraid of heights so the boys slightly pushed part of the fence out so Tina could go through. They walked through the bushes, trees, and brush and pass a particular tree with an upside-down pentagram carved into it. The hills were very steep but they still were determine to go up the hills They finally climbed up to the sign and the whole group was in a state of euphoria as they overlooked the beautiful Los Angeles city skyline.

“I was in disbelief, we made it all the way up!” Alain remembers fondly. “It was really exciting because we did it!” Tina exclaimed.

It was just before midnight when the group decided it was late and began trekking downhill. Brian was in the first person in line to lead the way when all the sudden, he slid and disappeared downhill in the night. The group could hear the rustle of the rocks and brush as he slid down when all the sudden, the noise stopped. All three of them panicked when they saw Brian climbing back up the hill. The group noticed he looked very shook up.

“I fell into this deep abyss and I was so scared,” Brian explains. “There’s a reason we probably shouldn’t be up there!”

The whole atmosphere immediately changed from exciting to dark and dangerous so they decided to proceed on back down the hill. All the sudden, they see a silhouette of a person coming up the path towards the group and wondered why someone was coming up the hill by themselves. They realized it was a woman in a “1930-style white dress” with heels on and a veil over her face.

“The way she walked seemed like she was casually strolling,” Alain said. Brian notes that her footsteps made no sound. The group decides to greet her with a “hello”. There is no response from the woman.  She wasn’t looking at the group and they didn’t know what to think; they maybe thought she was on some kind of drugs. They said “hello” again. Again, no response. But then, the woman looked up at the group…

The group screamed and took off like a bat out of hell. Her face distorted that was gruesome. And they were scared. The guys slid down to the bottom of the hill, jumped over the fence and got in their cars. Brian and Al take off in Al’s car.

Don’t look Back…

But the hill was so steep to the point that Tina lost her footing, fell and couldn’t get up. Right behind her was the woman in white. Meanwhile, Alain continues running and gets in his car and tried to get the keys in the ignition but couldn’t because he was shaking from nerves and adrenaline. He got it started and wasn’t even thinking about Tina, whom he had left behind and was still in the hills. Tina struggles to run to the fence and sees Alain in his car. Tina is trying to push the fence open while the woman is slowly creeping up behind her. Tina didn’t want to look to see what…or who…was behind her. Tina managed to slide out from the fence and Alain heard Tina scream.  Tina jumped into Alain’s car and was very upset and angry that the guys were going to take off without her. They all didn’t talk about the incident that night but they were all thinking the same thing: they just saw a ghost. Alain remembered about the legend of the “Lady in White” that lingered near the sign so he decided to look her up at the library.

The famous lady in white is known as Peg Entwhistle In 1932 she went up the Hollywood sign and committed suicide. She died from fractures to the pelvis. She left behind a suicide note:

“I am sorry for everything. If I had done this a long time ago, it would have saved a lot of pain.”

Lillian Millicent Entwistle
Lillian Millicent Entwistle

Actress. She committed suicide by jumping off the “H” in the “Hollywoodland” sign that overlooked Hollywood, California. In 1945, the “land” portion of the sign was removed, leaving only the now famous “Hollywood.” Born Lillian Millicent Entwistle in Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom, her birth date is given as either July 1, 1908 or as February 6, 1908, depending upon the document. Nicknamed Peg, she became interested in the stage as a child. Her mother died when she was very young, and her father moved the family to New York, where he remarried and had two sons. When her father was struck and killed by an automobile while walking on New York’s Park Avenue, the family moved to Ohio to live with an uncle, while Peg remained in New York to pursue her career as a stage actress. Wanting a shot at Hollywood, she moved there in 1930, hoping to become noticed as an actress in the movies. To pay bills, she worked on the stage, but attended parties of the Hollywood royalty, hoping they would notice her and offer her a part. She finally achieved her goal, winning the role of Hazel Cousins in “Thirteen Women” (1932), her only film. When no further roles were offered her, she became depressed and began drinking heavily. On the night of September 16, 1932, after a night of heavy drinking, she climbed the 50-foot “H” on the Hollywoodland sign (named for a real estate development) and jumped to her death. Her body was discovered by a hiker two days later, 100 feet below the sign. Today she is remembered for being an example of the lost aspirations of many who go to Hollywood to become actors or actresses. Ironically, the day after her death, a letter arrived at her home, offering her the lead role in a stage play about a woman driven to suicide. Initially, her body could not be identified, and she left behind the following suicide note: “I am afraid I am a coward. I am sorry for everything. If I had done this a long time ago, it would have saved a lot of pain. P.E.” The note was published in several newspapers in the hope that someone would recognize her; her uncle recognized the initials and traveled to Hollywood, where he identified her body in the morgue. Her body was cremated and the ashes interred in her father’s grave in Oak Hill Cemetery in Glendale, Ohio (www.findagrave.com)

Don Baker’s Rain Man

A man materializes streams of water out of thin air and defies gravity in front of nine witnesses.

February 24, 1983. The funeral of James Kishaugh. Kishaugh’s grandson, 21-year-old Don Decker ofStroudsburg,Pennsylvania, was granted a furlough from the county jail to attend the funeral. Don was serving a 4- to 12-month sentence for receiving stolen property. But no one at the funeral knew he had a dark secret. Don’s grandfather, the man he pretended to mourn, had physically abused him from the time he was just 7-years-old:

“No other part of the family knew anything about what happened, and it was like good fighting evil. The evil was gone and I was hoping, you know, that everything would change.”

Well, things did change, but not in a way Don Decker could ever have imagined. After the funeral, he decided to spend the night with his friends, Bob and Jeannie Keiffer. And that’s when the unexplained began to happen.  It was at the Keiffer’s home that all the uneasy feelings stirred up at the funeral came back to haunt Don. Suddenly he felt a deep chill. At almost the same time, water began to drip from the living room walls as Don says he fell into a strange, trance-like state.  The Keiffers notified the landlord, Ron Van Why. When Ron arrived, he was just as puzzled by the problem as the Keiffers:

“We’d decided maybe it was the plumbing, but there were no pipes in the front end of the house to leak. There was basically nothing there that the water could have come from.” 
After watching it for a while, I discovered that it wasn’t only coming from the ceiling down. It could come from the wall over or from the floor up. There was no basic direction that it was coming from. It could come from anywhere.”

Ron telephoned his wife, Romayne, and the police. Patrolman Richard Wolbert arrived at the scene:

“At this point he was telling me, ‘I just want you to walk into the house.’ I said ‘I’m not walking into the house unless you explain to me what I’m walking into.’  He says, ‘Trust me, trust me, just walk into the house.’ I walked in the door and he came right in behind me. And I couldn’t get two steps inside the door and I was absolutely pelted.

Officer Wolbert said that not only was it raining inside, but that the water drops defied physics:

“We were standing just inside the front door and met this droplet of water traveling horizontally. It passed between us and just traveled out into the next room.”

John Baujan was another officer at the house that night:

“I literally had a chill going up my spine, made the hair stand up on your neck. That’s how I felt. This was a situation where things were happening that I never, ever dreamed could possibly happen. And there was no way of explaining what was going on.”

At this point, the officers left to report the incident to the police chief. The Keiffers and Don walked across the street for something to eat.  Ron Van Why and his wife remained at the house:

“They left, and everything else left, too. The rain stopped. The house was normal. We were kind of thinking that maybe it was coming from them, and we weren’t sure, at that time which one.”

Pam Scrofano, who owned the restaurant across from the Keiffers’ house, had visited them earlier that day and had seen the rain firsthand. Pam was convinced Don Decker, sitting in her restaurant with the Keiffers, was possessed by an evil spirit:

“You looked at Donny and he was like in a trance. He would look at you, but not knowing you were there. I said to Jeannie, ‘He’s got to be possessed.’  We’re sitting there. Couple of seconds later, there’s water all over the pizzeria, too. I’ve never seen anything like that happen. I went in the cash register, I had a crucifix there, I took it out, put it on him. And the minute I put it on him and it touched his skin, he got burned. There’s no way that anybody could have played a joke like that. This was real. Donny was doing it himself. He was doing it without realizing he was doing it.

Even Don Decker began to believe that he was somehow responsible. The rain in the restaurant was the last straw:

“That made me more sure that I had something to do with it because it was following me. And it didn’t start raining in the house until I got there. They were living there and nothing ever happened. And that’s when I started realizing that it was me.”

Back at the Keiffers’ house, Romayne, the landlord’s wife, confronted Don, accusing him of somehow causing all the trouble. Don Decker recalled:

“The pots and pans over the stove started rattling. That’s when I got levitated off the floor. I was just like floating. Then it was like a push. It wasn’t like somebody taking their hand and pushing me. It was like feeling it all over your body at once. I’m a big guy, you know, I’ve always been assertive, and that made me felt like a newborn. You know, I’m scared right now just talking about it, really.”

A few hours after the strange incident in the kitchen, Officers Baujan and Wolbert arrived with their chief. Officer Baujan describes what happened:

“When the chief got to the house, he was pelted with water just as Rich and I were. I got the impression that he was put on the spot, maybe a little bit embarrassed, like we expected something out of him that he could answer. There was no way to explain what happened. I think he was put in a position where he might have felt a little uncomfortable.”

The police chief announced that the problem was a plumbing issue and ordered his officers to leave the Keiffer house. Officer Baujan said they were told not to file a report and not to even talk about the incident:

“Well, he just flat out denied it; it didn’t happen. And he tried to convince me that nothing happened. And he wasn’t going to do that. I saw it. And that’s all there is to it.”

The next day, three officers ignored the orders of the police chief. They went to the Keiffer home to continue their investigation. One of the officers was Bill Davies:

“We’re standing there and I gave Mr. Decker this gold cross to hold. Next thing he says, ‘It’s burning my hands.’ And there’s no explanation for it. When you picked it up, when you grabbed it, it’s not hot-hot, but it’s hot and I held onto it.”

Don also once again levitated off the floor. Lt. John Rundle said he witnessed it:

“All of a sudden, he lifted up off the ground and he flew across the room with the force as though a bus had hit him. There were three claw marks on the side of his neck, which drew blood. I have no answer for it whatsoever. And, I just draw a blank, even today.”

Officer Bill Davies was also at a loss:

“I’ve been a cop 40 years and I’ve never seen anything like this, never. There’s always an explanation when something happens.  If you gotta investigate, you come up with something. This is why it happened. For this case, there is no explanation.”

Finally, on the third night, Ron Van Why asked a preacher to come to the house and try an exorcism. Every Protestant minister and Catholic priest in Stroudsburg had turned Ron down.  Ron Van Why:

“As she started to pray, Donny went into a convulsion. He started to shake. He pulled himself up into like a ball and the longer she prayed, he started to relax, then.”

Romayne Van Why said she felt a change in the house:

“His whole body seemed to quiet completely down, and as you’re standing there watching this, you could feel the house itself seemed to take on a total different feeling.”

Ron Van Why:

“And by the time she got done praying, the water was gone.  And that was the last that we saw any water at the house at all.”

The mysterious rain was gone and Don Decker appeared to return to his old self.  But the change was only temporary. After his furlough, Don returned to jail. Within a few days, the mysterious rain returned, this time, in the jail:

“They put me in a maximum security cell. I was in there with another inmate. And I was thinking I should make it rain in here. And all of a sudden, water started coming out of the concrete floor, and at that point, I thought, ‘I can do stuff.’”

According to Don, he now realized he could control the rain, at will. A skeptical guard challenged him to make it rain in Warden Dave Keenhold’s office. Warden Keenhold recalled:

“I was sitting at the desk, writing a report. I was all by myself in the administration area. Nobody else was around. It was approximately 8:00 in the evening. At the time, I didn’t feel anything, but my shirt was drooping down.”

An officer entered and told Warden Keenhold to look at his shirt:

“And right about the center of my sternum, about four inches long, two inches wide, I was just saturated with water. I was startled. I was scared. The officer was frightened at that particular time, and I just didn’t have an explanation why it happened.”

The Warden called in the Rev. William Blackburn:

“All of a sudden, I received this frantic call from a sergeant in the jail. And he said, ‘Can you come over? We need you. We need your help.’ So he brought this very meek and mild-mannered young man into the room. And he was asking for my help.”

Don told the Reverend that he could make it rain and that crosses placed on his body burned. According to the Reverend Blackburn, he told Don to admit that he was just making things up, then:

“All of a sudden his demeanor changed and this smell came into the room. Nurses and doctors, medical people, say when you walk into a room where someone is dying with a cancer or something, usually there’s a smell. You can tell when you walk in the room. I smelled a smell like that multiplied five times at least. Evil, foreboding. He raised his hand and rubbed his fingers together. And all of a sudden, it started to rain. It was like the devil’s rain. It was a mist. I was in the presence of evil. I opened up the Bible and started to read to him. But the pages never got wet. So help me, it was a frightening thing. 
I think I was praying more for me than him. I prayed, and it was only a brief period, and the rain stopped.”

Rev. Blackburn said he noticed a sudden change in Don as well:

“He subsided and you could feel a peace. He said thank you. He got tears in his eyes. We hugged and prayed together. He was possessed. There was no doubt in my mind. There’s no way a human could do what he did in that room. There’s no way that he did anything, but what he did was spiritual, and it wasn’t of God. Guaranteed, it was not of God.”

Don Decker said that he feels like the bizarre occurrences won’t happen again:

“Well it’s over. It hasn’t happened again. Basically, I’m just hoping that it never will, and I just, you know, go day by day. And as for my grandfather, I think what had happened was his doing. Because he abused me when I was young, he got a chance to abuse me again.”

Chip Decker, no relation to Don, and Peter Jordan are the main paranormal researchers on this case. Chip was impressed with the eye-witness accounts:

“I think what makes this case very unique is that all of the witnesses are so credible. We’re dealing with very good, well-seasoned police officers that were obviously rather frightened and shaken by this, but also had the powers of observation.”

Peter Jordan:

“The Donald Decker case is by far the singularly most fascinating and important case I have ever personally been involved in. That does not mean I believe that it necessarily is proof positive to me of demonic infestation. But it is the case, in my own personal experience up to this point, that comes the closest to that hypothesis.”

In all, nine eyewitnesses, plus Don himself, were willing to go on record saying they saw, heard, and felt phenomena apparently not of this world. And they continue to believe Don was possessed by the devil. They have found no other explanation for the bizarre events.

A ghost Audition for the X-Factor

What could scare a Simon Cowell? A ghost. The place they were staying at was The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa in Dallas,Texas for their audition for the X-factor, a new reality talent show coming soon on FOX.  Who ever book him to this place did not know this place was haunted. But this place is absolutely beautiful and luxury rooms and it was built in 1923, the year should have given the PR a clue.

Designed by architect F.J. Woerner in the Beaux Arts style and predominantly built by local contractors, the 11-story concrete fireproof structure adorned with stone, terra cotta, and brick marked the beginning of modern, luxury high rise living in Dallas. At the time, it was the tallest hotel west of the Mississippi offering “fine” views of the city from its prominent suburban address inOak Lawn–“out of the turmoil and dirt of the city.”

Guests socialized in the elegant lobby, women’s sun parlor, and men’s smoking lounge on the first floor. The eleventh floor was a magnificent ballroom/solarium for special functions and a dining room serving the finest continental cuisine overlooking the city. Building amenities included a children’s gymnasium, beauty shop and barbershop, a grocery store in the basement, and The Stoneleigh Court’s own refrigerating plant, radio station, and 40-car parking garage.

Highlighting The Stoneleigh’s long list of notable guests have been such luminaries as Frank Lloyd Wright, Lauren Bacall, Jack Benny, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, The Metropolitan Opera Company, Carol Burnett, Carol Channing, Tom Cruise, Robert Duvall, Darrell Royal, Paul Simon, LeAnn Rimes, and Oliver Stone. The Stoneleigh Hotel & Spa is also member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Historic Hotels of America”.

And I think the celebrities who stayed there have their share of ghost stories too. Simon Cowell was the first to notice when he entered the building, and he was about to be checked into his room. He felt someone was watching him, a presence in the room, like the owner of the place was staring at him and trying to find out who was Simon Cowell and what he was doing in the room and his hotel. Simon Cowell had a weird feeling about this, and his co-worker thought he was a diva and wanted to change hotels. So they did, they change hotels.

This old creepy hotel had renovations done to make it exquisite and beautiful with a lot of features included. It sure is a one stop place one can do anything without leaving the place.

Old Tooele Hospital

Tooele Hospital in Tooele, UthaThere are several acclaimed hauntings that involve the Old Tooele Hospital in Tooele , Utah.

In the year of 1873, a man by the name of Samuel F. Lee constructed the structure in order to provide himself and the members of his family with a place to live. By the year of 1913, the Lee family had moved out of the structure and the county turned it into a home for those that were elderly and required special care and supervision. At this time, many locals referred to it as the “County Poor House”. It was not long before the residents of the county recognized the structure as an appropriate location for a hospital. In this haunted places to go ghost guide, you will learn about the hauntings of the Old Tooele Hospital.

The new hospital that opened in the area in the year of 1953 was a structure that was built for what is referred to as the “Tooele Army Depot”. Minor adjustments were made to the building in order to ensure that medical care could be provided to patients that visited it for care. This hospital was found to be a bit more attractive to the residents as the Old Tooele Hospital had no individual restrooms, but rather community restrooms that were limited to one on each hallway. In addition to this, there was no special location identified as a “morgue” for patients that passed away in the structure, though there was one room designated for the dead. The local mortuary would pick up the bodies as time permitted from this location. When visiting the Old Tooele Hospital , you will notice that the Tooele County Cemetery is seated beside the structure – could this have an impact on the hauntings experienced?

The Old Tooele Hospital has been the site of many acclaimed hauntings and various types of paranormal activity. You may be surprised to know that two popular movies were filmed in this mysterious structure. The first movie was called “The Fastest Indian”. This movie documented the true story of motorcycle legend, Burt Munro. The second movie filmed at the hospital was “The Stand” by Stephen King which is considered to be a fantasy story based on potential post-apocalyptic events. While these movies definitely brought some attention to the structure, a new hospital that has been hailed as “State of the Art” was constructed in the county and the Old Tooele Hospital was officialy closed for business in the year of 2000. Today, if you visit the structure, you will find that it is used for two different things – half serves as an area for the care of the elderly and the other half serves as “Asylum 49”.

In the year of 2006, a man by the name of Kimm Andersen elected to create “Asylum 49” as an attraction for the youth and other members of the community for Halloween. This attraction is a haunted house theme. Kimm Andersen had a difficult time accepting stories and events that surrounded the paranormal. However, after spending quite a bit of time researching the Old Tooele Hospital, he quickly emerged as a believer that it did appear that the structure had a unique share of paranormal activity. His wife, Rebecca, eventually contacted a man by the name of Troy Wood and an organization of paranormal researchers referred to as the “Utah Ghost Organization” or “UGO”. An investigation was conducted in the year 2007.

What the “Utah Ghost Organization” discovered while conducting their full paranormal investigation was absolutely amazing to them, the employees, as well as the locals. Thousands of EVPs have been documented during the investigations, and pictures and videos have also been identified that are said to contain various types of shadows, apparent apparitions, mists, different types of orbs, and several other unidentified occurrences. Once a few investigations were conducted by this team of paranormal researchers, the hospital elected to allow the public to have access to the area. Working together with the “Utah Ghost Organization”, the Old Tooele Hospital offers ghosts hunts two times a month from the beginning of the year to July. Information regarding these hunts and the private ghost hunts by emailing Rebecca@Asylum49.com, or by visiting www.Asylum49.com

You may find it interesting to note that a spiritual portal is said to exist at the Old Tooele Hospital . It is said that a nurse by the name of “Maria” guards the portal. The spiritual portal contains a very bright light in which the deceased are highly attracted to. The individuals that have died while being cared for in their old age often go towards this light, believing it is their portal to the peaceful afterlife. However, Maria informs them on “the other side” that this is not the area that they should go to. A psychic medium that toured the facility and did her own investigation confirmed this information.

It is said that a patient by the name of Wes haunts the structure. He passed away and seems to be a bit confused and scared. He had Alzheimer’s disease at the time of his death and it is believed that the confusion from this condition continues to burden him in death. He is known to stay in the room that he was assigned to in life as well as the hallway just outside of his room. A medium came in to the hospital and attempted to assist him in “crossing over” as he should in the afterlife, but with no success. She discovered that there is an entity that stays very close to him when he is in the hallway – this entity is described as being very “dark”.

There are several other spirits that are said to haunt the Old Tooele Hospital . Their names are Richard, James, Ned, Peter, and even Jessica, who is a young child. These spirits have made themselves known to the visitors, employees, as well as the “Utah Ghost Organization”. These individuals have heard voices, seen apparitions, and experienced events in which these spirits have made themselves known. If you enjoy reviewing evidence of haunted places to go, and would like to experience the evidence of the spirits at the Old Tooele Hospital for yourself, you may review EVPs, ghost pictures, and ghost videos by visiting www.Asylum49.Com and www.Utahghost.org We are sure that you will be absolutely amazed at the evidence listed at these locations!

There is another story of interest when it comes to the Old Tooele Hospital . This is the story that claims that the popular Samuel F.
