Ghost Hunters In Ohio
A Little History
We have not verified what little history and information we have been given about this location, but several of the locals in this area told us that this structure was once an institution for epileptics and then it went on to become some sort of mental institution for children. We don't even know the name of the place for sure. We have been told that the institution was shut down, due to the mis-treatment and abuse of patients. We find the entire area surrounding the structure to be very interesting. It is literally like a ghost town. There are MANY acres (more like a couple miles worth) of abandoned buildings in this area. The locals say that this structure is supposed to be completely torn down soon, because it is costing the owners too much money to keep boarding it up repeatedly, because of all the vandalism. The entire inside of the building has been vandalized from top to bottom. Everything is smashed up and broken and there is graffiti throughout.
The SHGHRS October 29, 2005 Investigation
Throughout October, Aedryan had been performing magic and presenting ghost hunter workshops, followed by guided ghost hunts, three nights a week throughout October at at a haunted house attraction in Hamilton, New Jersey (Hamilton Hauntings). On the weekend of October 28th - 30th, SHGHRS member - Matt traveled to New Jersey with Aedryan and accompanied Aedryan and a small group of people who had attended one of Aedryan's workshops to this location for an unofficial investigation.
When we first arrived at the location and got out of our cars, we were just standing there observing the enormous building and on two seperate occassions, Aedryan mentioned seeing, what "appeared" to be orbs flying away from the structure with the naked eye. He said they looked like shooting stars, but they were way to low to have been and they both came from the same exact area of the building. After standing there for a few more moments we suddenly began hearing things being smashed and glass breaking, etc; from inside of the structure. We then began seeing flashlights shining on the windows from the inside. It became clear that there were vandals inside of the building.
We approached the building and shined our flashlights up into the windows of one of the upper levels, where we haf seen flashlights and Aedryan jokingly yells out, "This is the police, we have the building surrounded!- Exit the building with your hands in the air!". To our surprise, several teenage kids actually came right out of the building, where we met them exiting out of a broken window. Needless to say, we had scared the shit out of them! After having a good laugh with the kids they joined us inside of the building briefly then they left....
Aedryan, Matt and the others took pictures and Aedryan recorded audio continuously throughout their stay. We did not record any video. Though this structure was definitely spooky, other than a couple EVP's and a TON of orb photos (undoubtedly dust), no other compelling evidence was obtained on this night. Below, we will share a few random photos and the EVP's.
The following ominous scene was definitely a bit disturbing when we stumbled into this dark, lower level of the structure! We assume this was just a prank, but the wierd part is, we discovered several empty bullet casings laying all over this room. >8>| We also captured a spooky EVP as soon as we entered this room. The voice sounds like a little girl and it says, "Come Here Please"....
We don't really have much of a conclusion, because of the lack of information we have about this place. As we've already stated, we did get a TON of orb photos (practically in every photo taken), but the place was filthy and full of dust. Other than that, we captured a few EVP's. If patients were really abused and mistreated in this place and people died here (hence - the morgue), we can only assume there may be some activity here. It would be a very interesting place to return to for a full investigation sometime and learn more about. If anyone from the area knows any factual history or information about this place, please be sure and contact us!
