So this is where I am right now!
LeMoyne Art Foundation / Munroe-McGinnis House
I do consulting work for an Art Foundation. My office with them is in an Historic Old home. It is smack dab in downtown Tallahassee, FL. It served
as a secret, makeshift hospital during the Civil War, it has been the site of feuds and squabbles, and murders have occurred almost at its door step.
It has served many families, and it currently serves as a community art center.
There have been many reports of paranormal activity, but since I am normally a skeptic, it has never phased me, nor affected me in any way. I have
been here alone at late hours and I have never felt scared, if anything the home has a nice, warm aura about it. I described it to some co-workers as
very "inviting" and when I am here late, I almost hate to leave!
So, about a month ago, some local paranormal group asked if they could do a study on this home, and the companion home called the Munroe House. The
Board agreed to let them spend some nights here and do research.
Low and Behold!!! The spot with all of the activity is the closet and attic adjacent to my desk, that I am sitting at right now!
The photos in the link were mostly taken within a few feet of this desk! I am told that the "orange" figures moved about the room calmly. At times
they appeared to be low, as if sitting, and at other times they appeared tall and gaunt as if standing, alert, and watching. The investigators were
thrilled at the level of activity and the amount of photos they captured. Their Facebook site shows a few of the photos, but their preliminary
write-up is not done yet, and we haven't received their official summary.
I wanted to share this with ATS, because tonight I will be working alone here, directly next to this attic and closet door, among the very boxes in
the pictures, and I will be here until well after midnight, because I have a lot of work to catch up on!
I thought ATS might enjoy experiencing this with me. As I said before, I have never had anything more than a warm, inviting "feeling" from this old
home, and I don't expect anything different tonight, but it seemed a little more exciting after seeing the photos and hearing what the investigators
had to say.
3 stories directly below me is the old operating room of the makeshift civil war hospital. The grounds are decorated with sculptures and fountains.
The walls are decorated with local art and what they call the Permanent Collection of art donated over the decades. It is decorated for Christmas
right now, and it is very festive.
I'm going to try to get some work done now, please check in with me if you have any questions or suggestions!
MODS: I meant to put this in "Paranormal Studies" instead of the Gray Area. Please move if appropriate.
