Visited during the day. I wasn't impressed with the volunteer they had in the house. She didn't provide a ton of information (I knew the house was infamous but I didn't know whole story). Would suggest bringing a tape recorder instead of photos if you're...More

Every time I visited this house, I have captured evp's that are class A. I personally have never felt any evil or negativity in this home. If you enjoy paranormal, then this is a must visit place.

I had visited 2 years prior and wrote a review on here. Awesome experience the first time. Not so much this time. I was astonished that they allowed 150 people to go through a tiny house within 2 hours. We had to wait 20-30 minutes...More

Weather is unpredictable I understand. But we that pay for the tour can't predict the weather either and coming from out of state, we can't come back the next weekend. VERY disappointed when canceled because of rain and didn't get a refund! Wasted $64!!!

A group of us went last fall and found this to be an expensive waste of money and time. It's an old house, nothing is haunted, and the local of chamber of commerce charged us $150 to go tour it. Save your money and go...More

This was our second time there... go with an open mind! They provide dowsing rods, and your tour guide will bring an EVP recorder. There is definitely SOMETHING in that house... both visits, we interacted with the "presence" there. Truly amazing and very creepy!
