Ghost hunting at the Meek, McConaghy mansions

12/14 UPDATE: Here’s the story, which includes a couple of EVP sound clips. Here are the photos taken during the event, which didn’t make it into the online story. The first one is the control shot, with nothing interesting in it. The second one was taken moments later, and has a shape in the right side of the frame that ghost hunters said looks like a white period dress. Colleagues here at the Review point out that it also kind of looks like Snoopy:



12/10 UPDATE: It was a fun event and I’m writing a story that will run over the weekend. Significant EVP activity was found, McConaghy presence was considerably “darker” than Meek, said investigators. There’s even a photo of … something … at the McConaghy that the APRA team said helped propel this particular investigation to an “8 on a scale of 1-to-10” rating.

I’m hoping to have EVP sound files as well as the spooky photo run with the online version of the story. I’ll post a link here when it’s available.

ghostbustersI’m about to go sit in on the paranormal event at the Meek Mansion and McConaghy House. Hopefully something spooky will happen, but we’ll have a story on it next week even if blood remains uncurdled.

Word is they found some “things” during the investigation, which will be revealed during the event.

Here’s a video of the American Paranormal Research Association investigators snooping around the Meek basement last summer:

    Ya think maybe all the equipment at Chabot lit up their machines? Goodness, they just attempt to read low level radio waves…If I were a ghost I would use light waves…

    Thanks for the update on the ghost hunting activities. Interesting what you said about “darker” activity. I know that I myself wouldn’t like a group of strangers barging into my home uninvited and then “investigating” it. “Darker” activity in that instance could be anger at what a spirit sees happening that it has no control over–one minute they are the observer, the next they are being the observed. In any case, I am looking forward to reading your full article. Thanks again.
