Brumder Mansion

Brumder Mansion, Milwaukee, was built in 1910 by publisher George Brumder.

Throughout the years it has had many purposes; boarding house, parsonage, Lutheran youth-group coffee house/ music venue and even a hideaway for supposed prohibition-era mobster, Sam Picks. Today the mansion is a stylish bed and breakfast.

An older female ghost has been identified as Susan. She likes to hang out in the Gold Room. There is another younger ghost that likes the third floor, especially Marion’s Room. A third ghost is male who enjoys the Parlor and George’s Suite.

Northern Alliance of Paranormal Investigators has had the opportunity to investigate this old house. Some things they picked up on were EVP’s of voices, a string instrument, and a whistle. Two investigators reported of having felt a gentle touch. The evidence obtained does offer a possible haunted bed and breakfast, and that these ghosts are friendly.

The Guthrie Masonic Boys Home

Here are the legends of the boys home.

One of the head mistresses was cruel. One time she punished a 6-year-old boy and beat him to death. She buried his body in the basement of the home. When questioned about the boys disappearance she said that the boy had run off. Over the follow three years four more boys disappeared.

The plumbing in the orphanage broke and in order to repair it the workers would be digging about in the basement. So the head mistress decided it would be best to move the bodies. One of the custodians noticed her strange actions and followed her to the basement. He watched her dig up the remains.

Also a nurse working at the home hung herself in the bell tower, they say she had anger issues and was probably unstable with reality. Other reports claim that there were graves in the backyard.

Ghostly encounters include an entity of a little girl who pleads for protection, a woman has been seen walking down the main hallway, a dark shadow has been seen in the bell tower and has been known to hover around people, and sounds of crying and screaming children.

The Masonic Children’s Home opened it’s door on December 31, 1907, in Atoka OK. In 1910 the home was moved near El Reno, OK. September 1922 was when the doors at Guthrie were open. The home remained opened until 1977. In 2000 it was privately bought and remolded into a residents.

Oklahoma City ghost caught on tape

On July 17 2003, a ghost was caught on a surveillance camera at an auto storage lot in Oklahoma City. The woman watching the event sent out another employee to take a look. The employee reported not to have seen anything unusual. The ghostly image looked human-shaded and floated around in a circular pattern as if searching for something.

After this story aired on television a family came forward claiming the woman was there daughter, Tracy Martin. Tracy died from the injuries she received from a horrible car crash on June 30. Then 18 days later her truck was moved, from the place it had set when it was brought to the lot, just hours before the image appeared on the video camera.

A well known and respected paranormal group, of the area, conducted an investigation and found no evidence of any other paranormal activity at this location. Experts in the field of video editing all agreed that the video couldn't be explained and that it would cost thousand of dollars on equipment to recreate this video.

Another paranormal group viewed the video and afterward they thought they could recreate it. Using the stage illusion called “pepper's ghost” they claimed that they were successful at recreating the video.

I have listed both paranormal teams links and the youtube link for you can decided for yourself.
