DeSoto Rock and Gift Shop

I have worked at the DeSoto for 4 years now and the number of stories I have are too numerous to list here . We have had several paranormal investigations in the last 4 years that have yielded EVP’s, images caught on digital cameras as well as IF Security cameras. We have had customers post some of their experiences on our FB page DeSoto Rock & Gift Shop. One experience that was unique was when I was in the shop by myself. I am very particular about wiping the makeup off my phone before I put it back up to my face. So I wiped it off and set it on the edge of the desk. I was unpacking some merchandise and @ half hour later, I picked up the phone and there was a hand print on my phone. You might say…well you could have set your hand on the phone not knowing. I thought that myself. I tried to put my hand in the same position. I could not make my fingers small enough to match. I had the first customer that came in take a picture of my phone. I have recently sent this photo to a Paranormal investigator that has forensic photo connections. We will see what happens.
