FORT ADAMS, Newport RI
The investigation at Fort Adams, Newport, RI has been an ongoing one for going on four years, yet we seem to experience something new as time goes on. A newly opened area, the kitchen area, and the renewed earthworks now add even more places to explore and interact with the entities residing there.
Activity includes physical interaction between investigators and a few of the fortress's less friendlier entities that have included pushing, gropes and a head-turning slap on one occasion. EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) is very commonplace with children and females seemingly taken center stage.
Evidence still under review has included photographs, on several occasions, of three separate apparitions that choose to reside in what was the Junior Officer's Quarters, the North Case Mates and during the Summer Ghost Hunts fundraisers, a figure walking on the West Upper Rampart. The latter is based solely on the anecdotal evidence of a fort employee, but it still makes great storytelling.
PAINE HOUSE MUSEUM
2006 marked the end of a three year investigation into reported paranormal activity occurring at one of the oldest house/structures in Rhode Island.
Asked by the curator of this fascinating venue at the time to look into repeated activity (activity that eventually caused her predecessor to resign her position there) which involved voices, objects moving on their own accord and reported physical interaction, we anxiously accepted the invitation.
Pre-investigation research included interviews with the Curator, her daughters and several members of the historical society who used the Paine House Museum as their headquarters. Interviews were also conducted with the firemen station across the street and the local police.
On our first night at the museum we quickly became aware that the stories about this house may be true. In less than four hours we had enough EVP to be evaluated than many cases before it. We were introduced to a young girl named Sarah, who throughout our time there made her presence well known. There was also a "darker entity" that would often combat our efforts; at one point psychically attacking a Medium to the point she had to be escorted from the house.
Mediums working with us were asked to describe the girl and using a facial construction program we regularly use called FACES (the same software used by law enforcement to create composite suspect images) the two Mediums interviewed came up with the same image. Several weeks later on a research effort using the society's library we found an old photograph of Sarah; matching the composites perfectly! Frustrating our efforts was the fact no other dependable information could be found on a Sarah Paine residing at the house other than the photograph.
Presently another much respected group has taken over the paranormal reigns at Paine House. We hope their efforts there will answer many of the questions left to be answered there. Best of luck to our friends at RISEUP. GOVERNOR SPRAGUE MANSION
A three year investigation of this historic mansion was nothing less than amazing. EVP evidence was non-stop and plenty of hard evidence supported the age urban legend that the former home of a murdered man was indeed haunted.
The true activity occurring on the property wasn't realized, however, until we turned our attention to the mansion's nearby carriage house; a brick structure that was, in our opinion, very much beyond the mansion's level of activity. Activity that included on one night a heavy wooden window frame being hurled at three investigators barely missing them. We hadbeen hoping for some "concrete interaction" that evening...be careful how you wish!
