The McPike Mansion
Outside in the front yard of the McPike Manssion.
Looking through the front door of the McPike Mansion. Legends say that on some nights you can see a lady in white at the top of the stairs. Unfortunately, the mansion was under construction when we were there and we could not go on the main or top floors.

McPike Mansion wine cellar
We were able to go under the house to have a seance in the wine cellar in the total darkness. I can't prove anything but I only had a wall behind me, but it felt like a hand touched my shoulder.

Me playing around with divining rods...I think you can tell by my face how much I beleive in them.
This was one of the random houses we went to on one of the tours. But the owner told us all to take a picture of the ceiling of an upstairs camera. At least 12 different camera made by different makers and all of them caught this odd white misty squiggle. If you look at the right of the string, you can see it. But the experience was very odd.

My beautiful wife using the divining rods. You can tell by her face that we differ on the reliability of these tools.
