  1. I investigated this place when pregnant with my son, the place is very old and interesting we got a very creepy evp from the basement answering one of the investagators question what do you want. Its reply was bring us the pregnant one. I wanted to go in the basement but was informed i shouldnt go down there by our medium. Im glad i didnt cause finding that on the evidence tape scared me so bad!!

    When I was pregnant with my kid, my husband and I researched this location. It is a very ancient and interesting building, and during our investigation, we received a really eerie EVP from the basement in response to the inquiry, “What do you want?” slope game
