THE RHINECLIFF HOTEL
Located in Rhinecliff New York, this hotel sits along side the beautiful historic Hudson
River. It was built in 1839 to 1842. It has a very long history with its surroundings
of scenic charm. Currently, it is still open for business and operates as a hotel/
bar. In the past it was a lavish hotel with many fine people and grand parties.
At one time in its past it was said to be a speakeasy at one point. It then went
back to a Grand Hotel. The owners now are a father, son team. The father is
83 years young, and in his early 20's he owned it with his father. So it is
3 generations owned. They have told us of many happenings that go on there,
as well as, some of the people who now rent and live in some of the rooms, and
the workers. They total about 9 and they all have a story or an experience
to share. The stories were all amazing!
Please check out our Ghost Stories link for more on them.
We spent 9 hours there with much results. We got a good EVP of things banging
when none was heard with our own ears, on the second and third floor. I have
left my recorder on the third floor and my partner left hers on the second floor
and we both got the recording of the same thing.
We also held a Seance in the attic. We definitely made contact with a female
spirit. We knew this because she answered us with tapping, one tap for yes,
two taps for no. It was an amazing experience.
The rumors of the ghosts are: A female that was killed when it was a speakeasy,
a man that died near the hotel on train tracks. He wanders at the hotel and
nearby locations. A man and woman that were married at the hotel and spent
their honeymoon night there. He died from an unknown cause and it is said she walks
around looking for him, and at last the owners have said that many people
have died there in the past from natural causes.
So now this place is very active and it has a number of ghost that still walk
in this once Grand Hotel looking for something or someone that we may never
know the answers as to why.
If you are ever in the Hudson Valley New York area I strongly recommend a visit
to this establishment for a good time or a paranormal experience.
Well the first thing I want to say is, how much these men were all brave heroes!! No
matter what side they were on, they fought very hard and believed in their cause!
And to give your life the way they did was brave and heroic. Gettysburg changed
my life and those in our group. We will never forget our trip! And we all are
drawn to go back many many times!
The thought of all the horrible bloodshed everywhere you went was enough to
bring anyone to tears! I had a sense of awe and a strange feeling the very
second I got there. It was so thick in the air. I would imagine that anyone
that would go there would feel it too. We did get very interesting pictures that
I will post. We got two EVP's echoing gun shots on the fields, but none
was heard with our own ears. Also, no reenactments were going on at the time and
no one else was around us. I hope to be able to put the EVP's up as soon as
I can for you to hear for yourself. It was incredible! I recommend for all to
visit there just once to honor our fallen heroes from the Civil War!
I have more stories on our trip on the stories link on the home page.
We were in an eatery located in historical Kingston New York. This whole town
at one time was burned down to the ground by the Red Coats in the Revolutionary
War. The buildings on this road dates back to the 1800's and before. It has
shops and places to eat on both sides of the road. Very nice to go make a day
of it there.
Anyway, this place we were at, the owner said it has been very active
for as long as he has been there, things like pictures falling, lights going
out or busting, doors being locked or unlocked, and glasses and dishes being
knocked off the shelves and broken. So we decided to do an investigation there. Our EMF
meters went off in the basement, which gave us a good idea that it was indeed
haunted. At the time they went off, the door leading out of the basement had
slowly closed, but not all the way. It was as if the ghost wanted us to know where
he was and to follow him. So we did, and lost his trail. Our meters just stopped.
We did take recordings (EVP's), and we got something. We are not
real sure what he says but it is something to the effect about the lights. (I
will get the EVPs to this site as soon as I can so you can hear for yourself).
We did however get one really good picture of who we think is there. It seems
to be a man. In the picture he is in the door and looks to have on some kind
of old long coat or maybe a uniform from the time. You will notice you can only
see his body from the waist up with no head. Maybe he does not want any one
to really know who he is. But from our night with him we can say for sure he
wants people to know he is there.
Man in the door
Location is Shokan, New York. This is a private home. We had got the call from
the owner asking us to come out to do an investigation into the ghosts she believes
they have there. She has told us that her kids, (three little boys) and herself,
have all seen and heard the ghost. The husband did not believe till one day. He
went into the baby's room to get his son out of the crib when he noticed
that there was an impression of a head bigger than his son's laying
next to the baby on the pillow.
When we were sitting at the table talking about the ghost, her oldest
son age 7 was talking to our EMF meters as if he was thinking that
he could talk to the ghost that we were talking about. We thought this was very
cute and were joking, when all of a sudden the meters went crazy. We had two
of them on the table turned on with them giving no readings at all! If you
know or don't know about EMF meters, if you get a reading from a man made
source like a microwave etc.,the meters stay on and give a constant reading,
not an on and off reading. I have never seen anything like this ever! The
little boy would ask a question to one of the meters, like what is your name?,
are you happy here? And the other meter would go off like
crazy and answer and then stop till he asked another question. We were all amazed.
We even switched the meters around and again it would do the same thing. He
would talk to one meter and the other would answer. This lasted about 15 minutes,
(With us making sure the meters were still on at all times). Then it stopped
as suddenly as it started. Like I had said we were all amazed. We got an EVP
(recording) of this activity. Our pictures we took during this all came out
black. Nothing can be seen in the pictures. All of our flashes worked. We had
three different cameras and all three of the pictures from this time all came
out black. The rest of the pictures from the investigation all came out fine,
except for when the ghost was talking with the kids.
So we told the owners that it was definite she had a ghost there and that it
was very much involved with the kids and watched over them. This is a very
nice spirit and the owners are glad it is there to help watch over the boys.
We did get three pictures of little orbs in them, and one with a face in a window.
We plan to go back there again very soon to try to make contact with the spirit
again. But it chose to talk and show itself through the meters, which I am
still amazed at. We never can predict how they will try to make contact with
