We had an awesome investigation Sept 18 at the Twin City Opera House. Our fourth visit was yet another learning experience.
We had one encounter with Charlie, the dark spirit from the basement. It was up in the catwalk, where little Elizabeth is said to hang out. It came out during a flashlight session that we were not talking to Elizabeth, but Charlie.
Here is what I learned from this experience. When we visited the Opera House last year, Charlie was this terrifying entity that kept showing up the entire night we were there. The more afraid we were of it, the more it did. On Sept 18, it was different. Why? Because G12P has former military on board now and he wasn't afraid. Jeremy even challenged Charlie. Charlie went away and never returned.
No one was afraid and it seemed like the terrible demon from the sub basement had no power. Definitely have to go back again for another visit to continue our study of Charlie.
However, we also didn't get any evp, nor much evidence at all. Exploring this century old building was well worth the time we spent there, even with the ball room now closed off.
There were 12 of us that went, including Amanda and Jeremy Vantilburg, Nicholas Vantilburg, Robert and Alex, Peggy Sue Reed Moats, and The Wells Family.
And the best piece of evidence we got for the evening?
This picture, taken by Amanda. Can you see the face? It looks like a little girl. Maybe Elizabeth?
Here is the original pic that she took. Is is a ghost? There is no way to say for sure. But I have added it to our unexplained file, for now.
The G12P is excited to be visiting the Twin City Opera House once more. Our last visit, June of 2014, we were with a tour. This time we are just investigating! We had the chance last year to catch some interesting recordings from the sub basement, where there is reported to be a dark spirit. I am very interested in going back there to see what else we get.
This video is part of our experience in the basement.. We were sitting by the door that leads to the sub basement, doing a flashlight session. I will be doing this again tomorrow night.
The inside of this century old theater is well worth the visit! There are several of my new crew that have not been there and it is always awesome to revisit and experience it with them. We will be sharing pics and recounting our adventure when we return. Since we have been there before, I can already highly recommend a visit to this truly haunted building!
I have been wanting to do this for years. After years of research, I finally got around to putting it all down in a book. Of course there will no doubt be revisions as I find out more information, but for now, here is the first one.
They are $12 each. If you would like one, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a text message at 330-303-6374.
Stories included in this edition are Esther Hale, Gretchen Gill, Jake the Night Watchman, Lucy Cobb, and a few others.
The book includes the legend as well as any real information that I have found so far.
There will be at least two more available by October. Ghostly Tales Of Rogers Ohio will be out by October 10 for the Rogers Festival. Salem Ghosts and Haunts will be out by October 17.
These will also be $12 each.
Rogers, Ohio is having a Fall Festival October 10! There will be lots of history to learn about. Old pics of the area will be on display in the City Council Building, which is also a historic church over 100 years old. Proceeds from the festival will go toward restoring the slate roof on this church. The ghost walk will cover stories like the curse placed on Rogers in an argument between of the most prominent men in town. It is a curse that many think is still affecting Rogers to this day.
Besides ghost stories there are plenty of tales from the history of Rogers that will keep you entertained as well.
For example, the old hotel and general store was also once a speak easy. You will never guess what went on during the weekends in the 1930's! The building was also used for funerals...
At the heart of Rogers is even a grave!! See where it is on the tour!
There will be vendors, games, pumpkin carving contest, psychic readings and much more!
If you are interested in a vendors site, the cost is only $10! For more information please contact any member of the Rogers City Council or any member of G12P!
