    1. During a paranormal tour in the ballroom/past operating room my boyfriend swore up and down he saw a dark shadow in the corner of one of the large mirrors. During a Halloween party/paranormal investigation I had some high activity from the room adjacent to the rose room, another woman’s room whom lived there. When I walked into the room and asked her something along the lines of “are you enjoying everyone being here?” I got a red sensor on the electromagnetic sensor and a few more yellows after another question. Lovely house, I recommend that everyone check this place out!
