On August 5th, 2023, a warm summer afternoon, a trio of friends (Patriot Paranormal) gathered at the Chariton County Historical Society and Museum to begin an “investigation” of the building.
After initial meet and greets and a walk through of the building, they began setting up equipment for the evening. Right away, the building showed that it was more than just four walls and the assortment of items it held inside. It was full of emotion and energy.
They used equipment such as cat balls, rem pods, k2 meters, a paratek, apps on their phones and cameras throughout the building.
The cat balls started to light up almost instantly when they were set out in the military room. The paratek began spouting different words and phrases when it was turned on, all signs pointing to this would be an active night. They spent time in the implements room in hopes that they would get shadows or voices, but unfortunately the camera battery was drained five minutes into recording, and they were not able to capture any evidence in that area.
They set up rem pods on the Sterling Price bed and gathered around to witness relevant answers come through the paratek, as well as the Rem pod responding to questions that they were asking of whoever was with them that night in the afterlife.
The jail cell was also an area of activity, as they sat on the cot and began the Estes method (a member is wearing noise cancelling headphones while listening to the spirit box, saying out loud the words they hear come through while the other members ask questions.) The rem pod between a couple of investigators started to sound and they both felt as if they were being touched by something neither of them could see.
They also had several visitors come in and join their “hunt” and use some of the equipment.
Patriot Paranormal would like to return and spend more time in some specific areas that they felt had more energy, like the military room, the jail cell area, and the area where the covered wagon is displayed.
Join us at the museum on Sunday, October 15 at 2:00pm where Patriot Paranormal will present their evidence and photos from their night of investigating.
