    1. A.P.R.T. went to prospect Place a few years ago. The investigation was awesome we were able to capture many evps and some interesting video.

    2. Went to Prospect Place May 7th 2015. I have to say it was one incredible night. We received may evps, photos, and as I was investigating in a room alone something was thrown or shoved at me. Have to admit did startle me quite a bit. Can’t wait to go back!

    3. I have been there on multiple times while staying a the Dresden Inn B&B. I have photos of the place from the hill at night that show some figure in front of the barn door around 3AM when no one was there. Down right scary place. Photo taken from about 1 mile away with old 1megapixel camera 2010.

      I have never been there at night but look forward to it. I know it’s haunted from Ghostly encounters during the day will scare the crap out of you

    5. It was the summer of 2015 or 2016 when 5 of us hunted here. I thought 2 of my buddies were in the cellar hunting as another friend of mine and I were hunting upstairs. We had come down the stairs and when I walked into the library room I stepped on a loudly creaking floor board. I thought I heard one of the guys in the basement say: “Who’s up there?” I told them it was me. My buddy Dave asked me who I was talking to and I said I heard Brian in the cellar ask me who was up there. Dave said he saw Brian and John go back to the campsite and that no one was in the cellar. I know what I heard. Immediately we went back to camp and there was Brian and John.
      That creeped me out.
