    1. I belong to a paranormal group out of Columbus Ohio we were at Bears Mill 3 weeks ago and it was very active. About 10 minutes into our investigation we heard footsteps and knocking sounds. We had the most activity on the Third floor in the back near a supply closet. I picked up on the spirit on a young girl and the more aggressive spirit of an older Native American who was not happy we were there. I felt that he was oppressing the little girl. So lots of activity was going on I was being touched and tugged at a lot. One point me and 4 other members were doing an EVP session and when one guy asked if they were upset we were asking questions then all of a sudden we heard 3 footsteps then a shuffle the guy got pinched then 4 more steps like running then I was pushed then more steps and it went back to the closet. We have a lot of documented and video information that we all shared with the curator. It’s a great place to have an experience. If you need proof then go to Bears Mill:)
