Using dowsing rods at the Friday night meetup. Preparing to try them at the well. Checking out the well with instruments This was debunked. It was duplicate able. But freaked me out when I first saw it. It was apparently a reflection from the door.
Thanks to all who came out. Looking forward to doing it again soon.
Looking forward to attending some paranormal conferences this Spring. Look for us in Jefferson, for sure and at the Gainesville Spring Fling. Who’s ready for another Gallery Reading at Hill House Manor?
Our next 5th Saturday event will be the last Saturday in May. It will be through the Hill House Manor meetup group and there will be a link on here when the details are confirmed. Except it is completely booked. So no link needed. will try to post pics this time.
TEXPART returned on the 24th and we so enjoyed having them back. They were among the first groups to investigate Hill House Manor and have been faithful supporters ever since. Welcome home, JJ. and the whole TEXPART team!
Saturday April 25th was an investigation by John and Jo Ann Sitterson with quite a few newbies and a great deal of activity. We look forward to some pics, stories and EVPs from them.
Brenda Peacock with A Haunting We Will Go is hosting an investigation on April 19th. Look for them on Meetup to book your spot. That is Easter weekend and should be very interesting!
The last 5th Saturday meetup was on a Friday. Someone booked the Saturday before Linda realized it was a 5th Saturday, so….. A Friday Meetup, it was. It was a great turnout and an excellent investigation.
A Haunting We Will Go is having a public investigation in April. Look for Brenda on Facebook or A Haunting We Will Go on Meetup for more details.
not all functions are listed
There was a Friends of Hill House Manor Meetup on the Saturday following Thanksgiving (5th Saturday meetup) Details at the Meetup site All other scheduled events between now and New Year’s are private. Hope you caught us on HGTV’s America’s Spookiest Homes!
The Gallery Reading with Mary Barrett was a fantastic event. Mary did some hypnosis and past life regressions in addition to the anticipated “messages from beyond” which were also spot on for a lot of people.
The investigation afterwards was also revealing as Trinity Paranormal’s Tiffany and Jennifer gathered some interesting info from someone named “Jeff” during an EVP session.
So it seems a good time was had by all. We will definitely do it again!
the meetup was great!
We had a lot of newbies and they seemed to really enjoy the evening. Roger and Marybell Denton stepped up and showed them the ropes with their gear (EMF detectors and more). One of the newbies has already emailed Linda that at one point when she was standing on the storage side she felt a 3 or 4 year old child take hold of her hand and just seemed to stand there holding her hand for a while. That’s my favorite kind of story!
We have a Meetup coming up. Sign up here. Saturday, June 29th
There have been investigations every weekend for months. The evidence is piling up. There have also been a lot of weeknight investigations and even a couple of daytime investigations (my personal favorite). If you haven’t been lately, get yourself up here!!!!
SOON: Already Happened. March 8th,2013 can’t wait for next time! Brian Harnois is holding a public investigation and event at HILL HOUSE MANOR!!!!!! So EXCITED!!!! Here’s the link for event and ticket info.
The activity at Hill House Manor has been increasing steadily for almost a year. Come check it out at one of the many open investigations scheduled in the coming months. check the calendar for details.
In Texas the Halloween season is as long as the Christmas season and it has begun. There are macabre decorations everywhere. This is the time of year when we are contacted by people who are looking for a Halloween experience and they are often surprised that we are not open on Halloween. But that is our tradition and we won’t be changing it. This house is real. What happens here is real. That’s a different kind of scary. It’s almost a boring scary. Until it happens. Then it will change you. Can you handle it? Bwaahaahaa!!!!! Boo!
Update 9-18-12– Had to go over to Hill House Manor this afternoon for something. First thing I notice is that the door to the storage side is open. We NEVER leave it open. I walked back to the kitchen and felt like not only was I not alone, there were several others there. I heard several sounds that were unfamiliar and unsettling. Grabbed what I came for and left in a hurry.
and no sign of the cat today. The cat usually only shows up when there’s an investigation or when I’m working on a rent house in the neighborhood. But she showed up last week for no apparent reason. Now she’s gone again. I know she’s real because lots of other people have seen her.
There are so many events happening at Hill House that we’re going to be adding an events page. We’ve added a page with local hotels and will be adding to it as we check them out.
What do Hill House Manor and My Ghost Story have in common?

Blue Moon Update 8-31-12: Walking through the house (Hill House Manor) this morning (noon-ish) doing the usual “day after a hunt” walk through, I heard people talking and thought maybe someone had stayed a little long. Walked through the whole house. There was no one there, but there was a feeling that I can only describe as ominous. and I kept hearing garbled conversation like a party or meeting a few rooms away. strange…. Wonder what got stirred up during last night’s Blue Moon? with Brenda Jordan Peacock and A Haunting We Will Go?

a spooky evening Saturday April 28th Hill House Manor We acquired this house along with several others in May of 2004. We have named it Hill House Manor because we have no idea who built it or owned it over the years so we chose to use the last name of the current owners. The house was a triplex when we bought it. Two of the units were livable, one was and continues to be used for storage. For over 3 years we rented out the units on a 12 month lease basis. Not one tenant stayed for the full 12 months. The downstairs unit has not had a tenant stay for 6 months. The upstairs unit has not had a tenant stay 2 months. We became suspicious……. Several Ghosthunter Teams have confirmed that this house is extremely paranormally active. Some would call this an understatement We have made the house available to Ghosthunting Teams. For a small donation your team can have the run of the house for a day, evening, night , weekend or longer. Not a member of a team, but want to be in a “real” ghost hunt with professional equipment? We also offer overnight ghost hunts guided by our resident investigators. All requested donations are used to offset the cost of maintenance, hot and cold running water, electricity and even WIFI and to provide equipment and upgrades to the facility. Hill House Manor was built in the mid to late 1800s. We don’t know exactly when. Our research is ongoing. Any info you have would be appreciated. It is rumored that this was a “SpeakEasy” during Prohibition and we have reason to believe this is true. Check back often as we add more info, videos, evps and personal accounts of paranormal activity. Also take a look at the forum. Ask a question, share an experience. Have you ever lived in the house? Did anything happen while you were there? Write it up and send it to Linda. She’d love to share it here.
