We have confirmed that there has been a reported suicide death in the Jail in the 1st floor cell block. Others have reported seeing the apparition of Sheriff Keeler in the past. One day in the afternoon a response was given to us that the name of the ghost we were speaking to was Tommy, a male voice.

Strange items have appeared in the jail that were not there on previous occasions. Items we have purposefully left in the jail have been moved or disappeared altogether. Jail cell doors have slammed Walking is heard all the time. Small items have been tossed such as bottle caps and a rocks. Jingling keys, odd old time music, music box music, whistling and rattling chains have been heard at different times of the day and night. The opening and closing of doors have also been heard. Male and female voices have been heard live with our own ears. We have had the voices jump into our current conversations a few times and heard them live and that is freaky!! Our names have been called out on many occasions.

While we can not guarantee that you will capture any evidence, we are stating that the Jail is very paranormally active and to date we have experienced and or captured evidence of many different entities that we can distinguish as separate entities. We are also stating that paranormal activity doesn't happen only in the dark, in the middle of the night. It happens during the daytime as well. This has been constantly proven to us not only here at the Jail but at many other locations we have investigated.

We are offering daytime and night time sessions.
These sessions are for private investigations, meaning your group will be the only ones investigating during your session.
There will however be a staff member on the property, who will not interfere with your investigation in case of an emergency or in the event you need anything.
