foreign we’ve been investigating the Paranormal and uploading videos to YouTube for about 13 years and for the last 11 years on this channel we have started every investigation with what we call an abandonment session and that is when we set up cameras and Equipment throughout these haunted buildings and leave see what is captured when these buildings are completely empty throughout the years of doing this we’ve captured some of the most amazing Paranormal Activity but a lot of people have asked us where did abandonment begin how did it start in the summer of 2012 we investigated a family home in Moundsville West Virginia where they were having multiple instances of Paranormal Activity and they asked us to come in and investigate but due to a scheduling mistake when we showed up there was a whole crowd of people there another paranormal team had showed up to investigate and some of the family’s friends were there as well so we had to come up with an idea a plan to get the people out of the house so we can conduct our investigation to back up the family’s claims what we decided to do was have everyone leave this house including us with only our cameras and Equipment inside and what we captured changed the way we investigate the Paranormal forever and on this list is our number one best piece of paranormal evidence captured while on abandonment since then we’ve left cameras and Equipment set up in nearly 120 empty haunted buildings and collected nearly 800 hours of footage when no one was inside so on this video let’s count down the top 10 best pieces of paranormal evidence that we captured during abandonment coming in at number 10 is the haunted house on Main you see about three years ago Steve was actually searching for a brand new building to move his haunted Museum the archive of the afterlife Steve had been in communication with a gentleman who had this property for rent and he was very interested in renting it for the museum but he wanted to do a preliminary investigation just to see if there was any type of hauntings or anything like that going on within the building from the look of the picks that they put up it looked interesting looked large enough spacious enough for the collection so yeah it’s kind of you come to this point where uh we’re gonna try to give it a preliminary investigation to see if uh this is where the the collection needs to go we traveled to Cameron West Virginia and when we got there to investigate the house we didn’t know much about it we really didn’t know any of the history but you see that night was cold that night was frigidly cold and the Windstorm had knocked out the power to every single building in the city you want to talk about Eerie you want to talk about creepy this entire city was dark and it was quiet alrighty let’s check her out we knew that the house was old but we didn’t know how old so we wanted to walk through and see which areas would be the best for us to set up our equipment and try to document something during abandonment it’s getting colder yeah we don’t mean you any harm yeah I got static on me right now we don’t mean you any harm we don’t want to hurt you we’re just here to talk to you and see if you want to talk to us and as it turns out the room on the back left side of the house gave us paranormal activity that we would never forget because the power was out we didn’t have any electricity to power the IR lights that we plug into the wall and we only had three that ran off of batteries so when we put our action camera in that far back left-hand room we had to use one of our camera lights the panel lights that we use to light interviews and light our b-roll shots the same panel lights that are being used to light this interview with me right now we put fresh batteries on it turned it on and we left the house immediately after setting up abandonment and leaving the house the camera and the foyer captured some disembodied voices then just a few minutes later in that far back room the one where we had the panel light set up the panel lights started to flicker and then it turned off and at first we hadn’t noticed that the light was off until we saw it flick back on and it caught our attention look in here we’re filming an abandonment you can see we have a light on in here and this light has been turning off and on by itself it was just off for what a good 10 minutes you know and it is a camera light it’s literally one of our reliable panel camera lights we’ve never we’ve never ever had a problem with it in the past because at first when I noticed it was off I didn’t see you up there by Dave’s car I thought you went in to fix them right no I’ve been out here I was just standing by the car for that YouTube live stream so this is really weird it just went off again yep see the lights off now I’m looking forward to seeing the footage I promise we went off this last time again it got dim and then it got bright when dim got bright and Dave said if you if you’re in there and can hear us turn that light off when you were talking to Steve and it wasn’t 10 seconds the light went off this is so crazy everything is manipulating that light because it’s going in out in no that’s not something that normally happens with those lights they’re very reliable but even still it’s they’re brand new batteries yeah I mean I charged every single battery and we only have had that light set up for you know a little while it hasn’t even been used for half an hour there’s no no reason it should be off like something was manipulating and playing with that light because we never had one of these panel lights act like that before when the battery dies the light just turns off it doesn’t flicker it doesn’t turn on and off so what was happening was very strange throughout the live stream you can see multiple times that the light comes on goes off it dims it fades on and off and right towards the end of the live stream it completely goes off and does not come back on we decided to head back inside the house when abandonment was done and we knew that light was still off inside that room and that camera was capturing nothing but Darkness been setting out in the car here for the abandonment at the location and we’ve noticed through the window of the back room we have camera set up and a light panel and the light in about 40 minutes has went off three times this brand new battery there’s no reason at all that the lights should be going off it went off three times and before it went off the third time the light you could very clearly see from outside it went dim bright dim bright and it’s off again there’s nobody in this house there’s no reason that light should be going off like that so we’re a little bit apprehensive to what we’re going to walk in on it yeah let’s go in there and figure out what’s going on let’s go right to that room and see if we can figure it out if the battery was drained it would have been done off yeah there’s no excuse for it yeah if the battery dies it just goes off as we walked through the house there was a creepy feeling in the air it was like someone was watching us and we really couldn’t explain it as we rounded the corner from the kitchen to head down that hallway into that room we had no idea what was about to happen to us [Applause] hello whoa it just came back on holy are you kidding me what the man are you with me right now hello I’ve walked in the freaking light just turned on oh my god oh dude I have chills thank you it’s for real this is a battery again there is no electricity running in this house there’s nothing on it like nothing is shake away a little bit there’s a battery pack on it no sound is a freaking pound man oh my God okay Dave just turned it off but that is probably one of the craziest things we’ve we’ve had happen uh yeah that’s really weird creepy is one word for it yeah that is that is that is one of the craziest and creepiest things that we’ve had happen on an episode of paranormal Quest literally as soon as we walked in it turned it turned back on yeah as I was coming you guys are already in as I came through the door pretty much and that’s just for the record this corner is locked we would have seen him yeah yeah see this door right here I was told by the property owner well it’s even taped shut yeah it’s taped shut up here on top we did not enter this door it was absolutely bizarre to see the light come back on as you’re standing there looking at it in the pitch black and it just illuminates the room it catches you completely off guard and the fact that it just stayed on and didn’t go off anymore lends credibility to me that something was in there messing with that light it had been off for 18 minutes and then as soon as we step through the threshold it turns back on we have no explanation for this and understandably we were shocked the key is gonna be with the footage on that camera yeah that’s that’s window tail that’s crazy okay it just came back on coming in at number nine is the Bell mansion in Fort Wayne Indiana was built by a man named Robert Bell for he and his wife Clara and they lived in that house for years in public Robert and Clara were the perfect couple supportive loving but Behind These Walls Behind These doors they held secrets of anger rage abuse isolation that are still trapped in the walls of the Bell Mansion to this day the Bell Mansion would later become one of the biggest funeral homes in Fort Wayne providing tens of thousands of funerals during its 93-year operation and the anguish and the grief that was felt inside this building still replays itself to this day as we were getting ready to leave for abandonment we stood in clarabelle’s room describing where we had each of the cameras and we started to walk back the hallway to leave the Bell Mansion empty and above our heads on the third floor the rempod went off Clara we know that you uh weren’t always allowed to speak your mind the way that you wanted to Robert Robert you gotta let Claire speak okay all right we’re leaving after only being gone from the Bell Mansion for four minutes the camera and the embalming room picked up the sound of a child’s laughter foreign like a child just down the hallway from the camera from the embalming room laughing and giggling as though they were living out just another day this voice was captured very clearly and it sounded just like a child right down the hallway giggling and laughing but shortly after that upstairs on the third floor the camera’s audio picked up a very clear and whispery voice that sounds like it said hey and after this voice comes through the EDI meter alerts a temperature and an air pressure change within the room could we have just captured proof that this Paranormal Activity changes the environment in which it occurs or is it that the change in the environment causes the Paranormal Activity let us know what you think in the comments below and for the remainder of the abandonment the equipment in the embalming room and on the third floor continued to alarm the entire time until we came back one thing’s for sure this mansion is definitely haunted sitting in ashes in Kansas is a beautiful Villa that is number eight on our list of best abandonment evidence mcinteer Villa is in Atchison Kansas and was built in 1889 by John McIntyre and there are multiple reasons for mcinteer Villa to be haunted most of which are the nine people that they know of that passed away inside this house all of them have been natural causes except for one which was Charles Donovan Mr McIntyre’s second wife’s youngest son he committed suicide October 10 1922 Anna’s brother who was a judge in Atchison moved in his name was Charles he moved in with his wife he did not die here but he is the one that found his nephew Charles after he committed suicide Anna was Mr McIntyre’s second wife her mother Anna passed away in 1898 then Mr McIntyre passed away of dropsy in 1902. Mrs McIntyre passed away in 1916. it would be it became a boarding house 1925 to 1952. in that time frame I’ve only found one death and that was a four day old infant location owner Stephanie O’Reilly has several security cameras throughout the house and throughout the years she has documented several paranormal instances in my opinion mcinto Villa is haunted in 1952 a woman named Isabel Altus bought the home and Isabel was known by all of her friends as Goldie she passed away right here sitting in a chair in front of the fireplace and that chair is right here behind me the very chair this is the chair that Goldie Isabelle passed away in and if you think of something that could hold energy that moment in life literally her transition from life to death to Spirit happened in this chair so who knows what is attached to this chair now for abandonment we set up a camera in the Parlor and purposefully put a rim pod on her favorite chair now we’re leaving eight minutes after we left that REM pod alarmed it was like Goldie was still sitting in her favorite chair even though the house was completely empty and 20 minutes later it would alarm again all right we’re back so what do you think leave us a comment below do you think Goldie is still sitting in her favorite chair haunting The mcinteer Villa McEntire Villa was one of those places where we felt eyes on us we felt like we were watched the entire time we were there like we weren’t alone and maybe we weren’t sitting in the quiet town of Greenville Pennsylvania is the mansion that made number seven on our list the haunted Greenville Manor this gorgeous Mansion was built by Thomas Gibson for he and his two sons Frank and Howard one of the most tragic stories of Greenville Manor centers around Howard the interesting fact about Howard is that he was a lieutenant in the U.S army during World War One and as many people know to be a member of the U.S army you go through extensive firearm training courses but upstairs in the bedroom while cleaning his service pistol the gun went off fatally wounding Howard his wife heard it and she went across and it was already too late and he had you know passed on Howard is just one of the many spirits that said to haunt Greenville Manor and The Undertaker Services were provided by McMillan funeral home and whether it was coincidence or fate MacMillan funeral services purchased this home and moved their business in for the decades that followed the house was used to provide funeral services for the city of Greensburg Pennsylvania funeral homes are uniquely haunted because of the grief and the anguish that people feel and possibly the energy of the deceased that lingers behind well after the remains are gone we know one thing and that is this is one of the most bizarre and frightening nights that we have ever had inside of a haunted location some just what normally during an investigation we can get abandonment set up and be out within just a few minutes but this time was just a little bit different rolling something setting off the motion sensor up here as we’re setting up abandonment I don’t believe it’s me hello unless it’s being blocked by this for 45 minutes we ran from room to room chasing different pieces of equipment alarming and occurrences happening around us we couldn’t even get out the door the motion sensor still going off upstairs we can’t figure out why we heard the mel-meter detected temperature change which the camera’s not on up there yet but we heard it and as soon as we said we heard that boom the cat ball went off we haven’t even left for abandonment yet and this place is just like Dave said off the charts with Paranormal Activity there it goes again it’s going nuts hello it was it’s at a 0.6 right now when we set that up it was at a zero okay foreign for this one the last camera we set up was actually down in the basement and even that didn’t go to plan I say we hurry up and get get out of here because let’s see what’s up let’s get this camera to the basement but what we didn’t know was when we set up that camera and started recording an unexplainable camera malfunction would corrupt the file causing it to need repairing and after we got home and repaired that file this is what remained this is crazy we cannot even get the fandom started because there’s so much activity there is a lot going on I mean I don’t know how to explain it before you turn somebody’s ready to communicate in here only after 10 minutes of recording the camera shut down and the file was so corrupted that it needed to be repaired to try and be saved we can’t explain that sound that you’re hearing it almost sounds like a buzzing or a beeping sound and we have used this camera for years and have never had it malfunction in this way and we still use it to this day and it’s never malfunctioned in this fashion since then that’s the RAM on the millimeter hello motion we went back up to the attic to plug in the camera so it wouldn’t die while we were gone and while we were in there I was explaining to the spirits how to actually use the Paranormal music box man we brought all of these things up here for you to to use right over here on the chair there’s a music box and almost immediately the Paranormal music box alarmed and if you walk in front of it or try to touch it it’ll go off so we immediately left the attic walked downstairs and left the house so we could start the abandonment so immediately we run for the door screaming we’re leaving on the way out to let the cameras know that the house is empty all right now we’re leaving but we had no idea just how strange things would get with that music box as soon as that back door closed and the house was empty the Paranormal music box started to alarm and for the entire duration of that abandonment session it never stopped meanwhile down on the other floors all of the equipment was going off and along with that strange and unusual sounds were heard including a scratching on the walls that sent chills up our spine okay the mystery of Greenville Manor is not based off of just one piece of paranormal evidence but by a knight filled with Paranormal Activity and it is a night that we will never forget number six Madison Seminary Madison Seminary opened in 1845 as a school for college and high school-aged boys as the years went on and the school expanded the very first brick structure that is still on site to this day was built in 1859 the boys moved out and in 1890 the Ohio women’s relief Corps moved in to be used as a shelter for women who were widowed by the Civil War as the wars continued overcrowding became an issue and the current largest structure on the property the Ohio Cottage was then built but in 1962 the building was purchased by the Ohio Department of Mental hygiene and Corrections and was turned into a place called Opportunity Village where honor inmates were given the privilege to take care of and care for psychiatric patients imagine that inmates taking care of psychiatric patients and this is where the history of the fourth floor becomes very interesting actually they still call it the Asylum to this day it’s a long hallway with rooms lining the edges where psychiatric patients lived and were cared for and this is where we captured something shocking that ends up at number six on our list this is going to be pumping out all sorts of energy during abandonment hopefully when we get back I think this is where we should start yes and try and use this energy for them to communicate we’ll be back shortly after we left the building completely empty with cameras running throughout the camera up on the fourth floor in the Asylum captured what sounds like someone moving around and then about 45 minutes later a strange light appears on the right side of the hallway it looks like Flames dancing across the wall as it suddenly appears out of nowhere before drifting to the left and slowly disappearing and there’s no way that any outside lights could be coming in through a window and reaching this wall the first thing that we noticed is the wall on which the light appears is not really visible to any windows so any lights coming through the windows would have a very hard time shining onto this particular wall and the light did not come from the plasma ball because the camera was set up there for nearly an hour and not once at any other point did that light appear on any other part of the frame we’re not really sure what this anomaly is but maybe you could let us know what you think it is in the comments below because we have no idea there is one thing we are sure of the people who lived and died here are still here sitting and dressed in Ohio is a magnificent Mansion built by GW Adams his wife Mary and their seven children over the years The Adams Family saw a lot of tragedy over the years Mr Adams himself his daughter and his granddaughter all passed away in the house but some of the Paranormal Activity and energy still trapped in these walls came from an entirely different source it was a stop on the Underground Railroad where slaves would hide to avoid being captured but through all the history of this building there are a lot of Legends that cannot be verified like the legend of a bounty hunter who came to Prospect Place searching for runaway slaves the staff of the house allegedly drug him to the barn and took his life and while that happened out in the barn the Paranormal occurrence that we’re talking about actually happened down in the basement even though there was no one on property and we had left to go get dinner the camera in the basement at the end of the hallway captured the sound of the entry door opening now that door is held open for over a minute and you can hear it slowly creaking as it’s being held open before finally coming back to a complete close we have no idea what actually caused this because the door is held closed with very strong metal Springs and we would have loved to capture that visually on video but we know for sure that that door opened and closed and we have no idea what didn’t they have been abandoned and placed at the mercy of the state in the case of penhurst the state has failed to do its moral duty state school and Hospital it’s become synonymous with haunted in Spring City Pennsylvania this institution was built to teach and House people with developmental disabilities and it was built with the best intentions in mind but as the place became overcrowded and the hospital became understaffed neglect and tragedy were commonplace in these Halls but the biggest problem here at Penn Harrison at most of these places around here was the overcrowding I mean people just shoved people in here when Pennhurst first opened in 1908 it was meant for 500 people but by 1911 it was already up to 1500 people 1500. obviously they opened up more buildings but it wasn’t enough and actually in the 50s it capped out at about 5500 patients they had here at one time it was so bad they had patients sleeping on the floor I think Pennhurst is in the condition that it seems because nobody cares human beings laying unclothed in their own filth for weeks living a real-life nightmare inside these buildings but many people believe the patience the people who lived these atrocities are still inside these walls waiting to speak our night at Pennhurst started in a building called Devon we spent about an hour in Devon moving from the basement up to the first floor up to the second floor before finally deciding to take a break and leaving this building empty with two cameras set up for a short abandonment session while we were in the Mayflower building all the way across campus it sounds like someone’s moving in there oh but the camera on the second floor captured one of our most eyebrow raising head scratching pieces of paranormal evidence to date on the far left side of frame a solid object or shadow moves from the bottom to the top just outside of that edge of the frame is a doorway that leads into a separate room and could it be possible that one of the former patients residents or even staff of Pennhurst state school and Hospital moved out of this room and passed the camera whatever it was it was certainly creepy sitting in Sumner Illinois is a building known as Pinelawn Manor the building had been constructed originally to be Apartments but in 1970 they opened a nursing home inside these walls and for over 30 years it took care of the elderly and others nearing the end of their lives and it’s estimated that hundreds of people have passed away here at Pine Lawn Manor when we arrived on location we were given a tour by a Paranormal Investigator named Lennon O’Hare he’s the lead investigator of a group called Midwest Supernatural he had investigated there several times and had many stories to tell us one of which occurred inside a room known as the doll room and she was communicating with that doll and she was communicating that doll was very angry and I was kind of standing in the doorway just kind of leaning on it facing them I wasn’t really in the in it I was just listening and uh as they were doing that I started getting really really bad burning sensation on my back I lift my shirt up had Tony look at it I had about a two inch pretty sizable welted scratch on my back ah Leonard yeah yeah somebody scratched you bro I want you to get a good glimpse of this my friend I’m video cameraing it for you gosh damn do this thing but I I wow and yeah I was standing just like you are right now and there’s no chance I hit my back on something sure scratched myself that hard you know it was very looked very deep almost for abandonment this was one of the rooms where we had a camera set up we wanted to see if anything unexplainable would happen with that doll in particular and 40 minutes after we left the camera captured something that we still cannot explain it actually looks like there’s a shadow that moves from the end of the bed toward the doll oh and we have no explanation for this and we spent a lot of time trying to figure this out we know that it wasn’t a bat because a bat would have flown in circles around the room and it definitely was not any other animal because the only entrance to the room is clearly in frame our other thought was well the camera’s in front of a window maybe there’s a light outside shining in but this Shadow is not coming from an exterior light source this Shadow passes through the light from our infrared night vision cameras moving up the bed and reflecting that light back into the camera whatever moved from the end of the bed toward the doll was actually inside the room this will go down in history as one of the creepiest Shadows we’ve ever captured and we still have no explanation for this out of all of the buildings that I could think of that would be haunted hospitals would be at the top of that list in Harriman Tennessee sets a hospital built in the 1930s and used for the medical care of the community for decades this hospital is massive at nearly 200 000 square feet and in every single part of this Hospital someone has passed away the tour guides and paranormal investigators have had countless experiences that they just can’t explain including seeing a child in an area of the hospital known as the geriatric Ward one of our guests Chris Devon and I were here at the time where Chris is dead and there was a picture of a little child you could see knickers that’s all you can see is the legs down this child’s got knickers on standing right there in the doorway it’s a little girl with hospital gown on and it’s in this part of the hospital that we captured some of the best paranormal evidence that we have ever captured in the hallway called the geriatric mental health ward this camera captured something chilling this music sounds very close to the camera and lasts nearly eight minutes foreign probably the most shocking part of this evidence is we were in the hospital in the other building and had no idea this was happening and the weirdest part of it all is the music keeps starting and stopping almost like it’s glitching blah blah foreign and in the middle of this music a very creepy clear and audible child’s voice says meow as soon as we got home and realized what we’d captured we contacted the tour guides of the Herriman Hospital to figure out what the hell are cameras recorded Ronda our tour guide went to every single floor of the old building searching for toys that played music pushing their buttons and trying to match them and we think we found out which toy it was sitting just around the corner from the camera is this learning table then you can count again and it sounds like someone or something was pressing the buttons on the toy to make it play now still to this day we have not been able to match exactly the music and sounds that we captured on camera but we are so excited to go back in the near future and figure out truly where that music was coming from foreign at the beginning of this video Ryan and I both told you of the story that began the abandonment sessions for our number one best piece of paranormal evidence ever captured during an abandonment session we go back to where it all began you see there was this house in Moundsville West Virginia where a family was experiencing bizarre and unexplainable things Shadows voices objects being thrown and in July of 2012 we were contacted by Chris Deadman to investigate this home and even the parents were terrified as they frequently witnessed their children talking to no one and I remember when we showed up a crowd of people enveloped the interior of this house and with this noisy crowd there was no way we were going to be able to capture any paranormal evidence so as the night went on and the noise and contamination enveloped everything that we were doing we came up with a master plan set up the cameras and the audio recorders and the equipment and have everyone leave the house including us and as we were going through the house setting up equipment Ryan kept saying we’re leaving and if you have anything to tell us now is the time repeating it in every part of the house and once everything was set and ready we took all of the people we all went out the back door and the house was officially empty but what we captured left us with our Jaws on the floor it actually sounds like a little girl saying tell them what and then you hear a woman say we don’t do that we captured the clearest voices disembodied voices that we have ever heard in our lives that happened 11 years ago and still to this day listening to that recording makes the hair all over our body stand on end and could this mother and daughter Duo still be communicating From Another Dimension let us know what you think in the comments below so there you have it the top 10 pieces of paranormal evidence that we’ve captured on abandonment sessions sub and with that that is the end of the episode we thank you so much for watching this one let us know in the comments
