We had an opportunity to investigate a small old African American Methodist church in Van Buren, Arkansas. The church was built in 1889 for a congregation that consisted of recently emancipated African-American former slaves when it was organized in 1869. It is a significant local landmark in its African-American culture and history.
Just so you understand, there were no reports of paranormal activity but since we were allowed in, we took the shot.
Except for our K-2 lighting up at times (no electricity at all at this location) and we got some orbs on our cameras, we got no other activity.
We do feel there were a few in there hanging around or staying to protect, but we also understood they were not going to talk to us! That does happen.
This is a Haunted attraction Carthage, Missouri. As all haunted houses are, they are working on it almost year around.
They have had some odd occurrences as they worked and asked for us to come up and take a look.
We actually had a few things happen while we were there as well. When we were in one of the rooms, we had a flash of light go across the wall. We all saw it! We were too deep into the building for it to have come from outside. Believe me. We looked! Unfortunately, my camera was facing the other wall. Towards the end, all of our batteries were shot. This is crazy unusual for my video camera because it was fully charged and can do several hours which I know we did not go over that here. Our recorder batteries were spent along with our phones!!! Everything with pretty much everybody on both teams.
We actually did not find a lot except for our “flashlight” session. If this female is correct, she claims she is the only one there. She could be their problem.
I have a video of the flashlight session listed below that we had with her and it is uncut. It is probably longer than it needs to be but it also allows you to see our process in asking questions and getting answers.
We investigated a local establishment however, we cannot say where it is located.
Evidence was spotty so we have a few EVP’s listed below and a couple of videos. I do want anyone seeing this to understand that just because we attained little, doesn’t mean we didn’t have a good time doing this or any investigation. This is what it is all about.
We had just started and I said I was going to take some pictures. I guess they did not want their picture taken. At the end they say whisper – OMG …
We were talking about a place nearby from a long time ago and at the end you can hear a raspy voice say, “I felt a lot better then”.
We were playing period music and yes, I was a klutz and dropped something and it was load. At the end of this one you can hear someone say, “Didn’t smell the gun”. I will always wonder if they said that because of the load bang.
Below is an odd video clip we captured. We can identify a bug in the very beginning. Then someone whispers “Hey”. Then … something streaks across. The first video is real time. The second is slowed down for you. I swear. On the slowed down version it seems you can actually hear the streak.
We did a two night investigation into this place. This is a Haunted Attraction located in Van Buren, Ar.
What makes this place super special is the fact that the contents of this place were all brought over from the old Fort Chaffee prison. The Fort Chaffee prison housed over 19,000 of Castro’s Cuban criminals. Seems like – the worst of the worst.
They were brutal, fought, rioted and even held ritualistic ceremonies. Those leave horrendous footprints.
We contact KVOO radio station to see if they would like to go on an investigation with us as it was almost Halloween time. They did! However, I should have been more specific as we were sent a Morning show host. That means we were at The Asylum at 3:am. That’s Ok! The Ghosts did play with us! And her.
We had several things happen. First of all, George had not been off work very long and had hurt his hand. He was a trooper and did the investigation anyway. The next day, he found out, it was actually broken.
Kelly had told us later in the investigation that she had worn a bracelet with the angel Gabriel on it. She had gone to the restroom before we started and it fell off. She didn’t think much of it and stuck it in her pocket. Later in the evening, she realized that The Asylum walls had Gabriel on a lot of the walls.
While we were in one of the rooms, Trey was telling her some of the things that had happened to them there when we heard a door slam down the hall. At that time of the morning, it was only us and a person stationed at the front desk.
This was the first time we went to this old hospital. Because it was so great, you will find we went several times.
Six stories of broken dreams.
A short video to give you a sense of the place and our investigation and a Remote View from our psychic, Sandie is below. Enjoy.
Old Abandoned Hospital
I see a very long white
fence. Does this surround a large tract of land?
I am sure there is a fence. We
went through a front gate and the place is on originally a 1000 acres. That
would be considered a large tract, to me.
I hear whooshing sounds
like car tires on the road passing along that w i d e length of fencing.
There are a lot of roads in and
around the place.
I see several man spirits
standing and leaning against what looks like a pole or the end of a
building/barn/stable. They are all wearing perhaps 1920’s clothing…each has a
vest on. They are talking about who is” going to go first.” ???
I see horses surrounding
the buildings. Is this where horses are kept or bred? I can’t help but think
there were stables or a smithy shop here a very long time ago. I see live and
That would be about right. They
started making plans to build this place aprox. 1909. They have pictures from
that time period on the grounds and you will see men on horses. If there are
horses – there has to be barns.
I see a small girl spirit,
with the cute pinafore dress, ribbons in her hair, high top button shoes
carrying a rag doll. She is walking down a dirt road or dirt pathway. She seems
happy one minute, sad the next. I can’t see where she came from or where she is
going…it seems like she is looping herself along one small tract of that
road. I wonder if she were killed/died in that 20 feet of land/road and lives
her death over and over.
I believe the second floor is
where people hear children. Supposedly, there is a boy and a girl. However,
many children came through this place.
I am seeing an old house,
but it seems as though it has been remodeled or added too with newer rooms, or
roof. I see the house is white with a pink or mauve (at least that what the
color is to me) trimmings. Has an earthquake hurt one side of the
house/roofline? Did something crash into it? It seems like the wiring or
plumbing could be dangerous now due to the damaged house.
This place has been remodeled,
some. I think the original building was several YARDS from the back of the now
building. I am unsure of what happened. Maybe the building was just too small.
But it was pretty wrecked inside so even though I am not an electrician – I’m
going safely say they have a few “issues”. And there were some areas
where the ceiling was falling down. That being said, there are several house
types of buildings on the grounds.
I keep hearing “I
arrived.” Is this a spa or hotel or lodging place of some kind – in the
past or now? I hear different voices say “I arrived.”
You got the Spa – Hotel –
Lodging place. They would always try to play those places as a retreat instead
of a hospital.
If there is an
upstairs/attic to the building, I am hearing scratches on the flooring of this
section. It seems like a spirit is laying on the floor, in pain, and scratches
the floor hoping someone will hear him and come to his aid. You know, my
vision was creepy about that…I could see a man on the floor and he was
scratching like he was trying to move himself. It was a true horror-movie
Charity and her group heard
scratching on one of the floors and have a light EVP with the scratching.
Wails. When the wind blows
I have a feeling that there are not just sounds of the wind blowing through a
crevice or open window, but wails of young men and women. Like either in
ecstasy or in pain. Sometimes both situations emit the same kind of wails or
It is said that people had heard
wailing on the 3rd or 4th floor. George got a moan on his that is on
the EVP page.
I am seeing a spirit man,
again in turn of the century clothing, running to a building. He is running as
fast as he can to either get away from something, or quickly get to the house/building.
Again….the “I arrived.”
We cannot confirm this as it
seems to be a vision of the past. But we do have an EVP that says, “They’re
I am hearing the number
17. Was this at one time part of the address here? Or there are 17 significant
We have not figured that out
I see some kind of spirit
– human or bird? – swooping in from a hill behind the house. ?? Or if there is
a large building behind the house. I’m not sure just what I’m seeing as it is
too dark. But I can feel and hear and kind of see something swooping in. It has
large wings or some kind of arm-span. What the hell is that?
Not exactly sure – BUT the windows
upstairs were large and had bars across them. There were a
few windows (not all) had dead pigeon type birds laying at the bottom of the
windows. Not sure how they got between bars and the glass. There were recent
dead birds down to skeletons of dead birds. They were, at times, 2 bodies deep.
A real head scratcher.
What is across the street?
I am feeling very negative, hateful energies from across the street. It seems
like someone is very jealous, envious, competitive and petty. I feel these
energies are from a living being, not from someone who has crossed over… But
at times, the hateful energies are so powerful that birds will scatter from the
trees in front. Weird. But negative thought patterns can soar through any
There are still some buildings
on the grounds that take care of people. Not the building we were in but in the
other buildings on the ground there.
In the kitchen/kitchen
area there is someone sitting at the/a table. He, older man, is thinking on
something….sometimes he grunts when he has an epiphany in this thinking…he
is smoking either cigarette or cigar. His smoke can be smelled at certain
times. I know he’d love to have a cup of very strong coffee. Perhaps the owner
could make him one?
There was a kitchen on every
floor. This sounds more like an interesting glimpse into the past.
I keep hearing the word
“Terrible.” Was there a horrific accident here?
Being a hospital in this time
period, they lost too many people. It was terrible.
Sparkling lights. Has
anyone stated they see sparkling lights? It seems like the lights are seen over
an outbuilding – shed, barn. For some reason, some kind of fairy type of spirit
lives in/on/around that building. How fun! I haven’t seen those kind of
energies in a while. How lucky for them.
Wish I had seen them!!!
Was this a battlefield at
one time? I can’t help seeing some very horrific deaths across the wide expanse
of land. It looks like a Gettysburg
type of spirit phenomena…spirits walking around all over the place! Way too
many spirits walking around in despair, heads held low, stumbling along. Sad.
Yea – all patients. I can see
how she would confuse it with a battleground. So many sick people in such a confined
area and dying so fast over so many years.
If there is a water way –
river or creek or stream or pond or pool – nearby the water needs to be checked.
It is kind of toxic.
Although I have no doubt there
is water on such a large area of land, you probably honed in on the basement.
It had standing water that looked nasty. We were a little ill at ease with that
(No offence to the place
or people you investigated, but, I didn’t like this place at all. It was quite
difficult for me to ‘see’ things because I just wanted to get away from here.
