This is in a historic 13,000. sq ft mansion in Hannible Mo built in 1898. This house is haunted and if you do not believe me you can rent it as I did for a night or weekend, or I guess weekday also to experience the home, its previous owners, and maids from long ago. In one room early in the morning right when the sun starts to come up, about 4ft to the right of the bed you lay in, you will hear the maids slowly opening the dresser drawers. Very quietly, they do not want to wake you.

If your lucky you may catch the man of the house go into fit, as he always did have quite a temper, and stomp through the whole first floor while throwing heavy objects. Of course nothing is broken and door is locked when you check it. Or possibly have that same man walk around a corner and see him wearing his white shirt walk right through you and get a very cold chill on arms and top of head. Hes very short so do not look up or you will miss him! If you are in another particular room and sleep on the fainting couch, early in the morning you will be woken up by the previous maids by a hard tapping on the carved wood of the arm of that very fainting couch. Id get up if I were you and do a early morning chore! This mansion is named Rockcliff Mansion. Many more story's could be told of spirit happenings in this mansion but go and stay awhile yourself. I myself rented the whole mansion for a weekend and stayed alone. Are you brave enough also?

    Wow!!! That is quite a story connected to this mansion and very interesting...I love reading about haunted houses but not sure how I would react if I actually saw the spirits...You were brave to experience that and love the image that you photographed too!

    many years ago before paranormal studys..were the in thing, I did paranormal investigations quite often for at least 10 years. The very last one that I was going to do was I had the whole Villisca axe Murder house for a weekend booked. That one I was a little nervous doing alone. My long time friend Ron Reeder whom is a well known medium...Not small but medium.. :) was suppose to go with me but ended up not being able to. I cancelled that trip due to other reasons but if your interested in paranormal then that is one to go stay at. Another very good one that is very active mostly with evp's is Mineral springs hotel in Alton Illinois. We have spent the night in this hotel many many times. You will get many interacting with you mostly verbally. This hotel has two lower sub floor basements. The first basement has the women's pool, The basement floor another level down has the old butchering room with old hooks still in place here and there. Three floors total above basements. I had a spirit walk up and get in my face, couldn't see him but it caused the snot in the sinuses above my brows to pressurize so bad the snot started crackling and making sound in the sinuses. Felt extreme pressure on my head and forehead at same time.
    Been to Lemp mansion in st Louis many times. Not much there. Only once did I feel a spirit next to my right arm that made the hairs on my arms stand straight out as if you rubbed a balloon, got it full of static and got it very close to your arm. Thats it. I've been to a lot of places that say are haunted but not many are very if at all active. Tombstone and bisbee AZ. Have been there also. Use to run cat5/siamese wire and a whole temporary cctv system throughout each bldg and had lots of meters, recorders etc. Maybe close to Halloween I will do a story with photos. Little tip...Dont believe anything you see on the paranormal shows you've seen in past on tv. Not how it happens. If they were to do an actual investigation they would bore all of there viewers because it is rare to have things happen and if they do the events are far apart from each other. Well at mineral and rockcliff more than usual activity I must say.
