Prospect Place Exterior - Built by entrepreneur, George Willison Adams. The original building built in 1853 was burned by an arsonist before the family could move in. The second, which you see, was built in 1856. It has been saved from demolition by the GW Adams Center. Proceeds from ghost hunting tours and rentals helps to restore this building.

Prospect Place - Unloading the equipment
Set up of equipment - about 8:00 pm.
Setup of equipment - about 8:00 pm - We had a video tour and a large open area near the entrance for setup which included tables and chairs to use as a meeting place.
Layout Investigation began about 9:00- We believe this is the room where a very happy spirit was singing 'gloria, gloria!'. You can hear Phyllis speaking and is interrupted by the slightly off-key, very loud voice.
Note the orbs collecting around Phyllis, team investigator. She had been sitting there for 8-10 minutes. Yes, the place was really dusty - the walls were brick and plaster and the floors were wood. This was one of the rooms where we heard heavy breathing - Constance died of TB.
Travis got his name called by a young woman.
Balcony overlooking back of Prospect Place.
The Upper level was called the dance room. There was a strange cross on the wall behind Pat to the right. It obviously covered something a little more sinister - it was painted over some strange art. We spent several minutes communicating through an EMF meter to a spirit.

The Upper Level Dance Room - We had a long session speaking with a spirit we believed was Constance . . . until another entity entered. This is where we heard the growl (not doves which were on the roof too) and got the most evidence.
Listen to ghostly footsteps below:
The stairway where a little girl has been seen.
The basement/cellar. Pat was touched on the back here near the well. There was a sad emotional level felt here by three different team members - each mentioning it without the others knowing it.
As we leave the upstairs, a ghostly voice speaks through the ovilus.
The Upper Level Dance Room - Far wall had a cross on it -in the center, we set up cameras that ran all night.
We asked how Mary died in her room. We got this answer: push and fell. She did die from a fall and complications of pneumonia.
Hear the evp
This was what I could see.
And this was the stuff I was glad I didn't hear until I got back to the office. . .
Are you going to leave me?
Scary EVP that sounds like: "Witch, we need your help".
Bedroom with Mister Adam's picture in it. He was an avid abolitionist in the 1850s and it was said he helped many refugees from the southern states escape to Ohio.
Travis and Remington were investigating and had split off into different rooms. At some point, a loud moan was heard . . . both heard it and it showed up on tape.
