Ghost Hunters Fear Factory – this weeks episode takes place in Topstone Mill, 100 Mulberry Street, Claremont, NH.

GH1

In 1908, it was a shoe and furniture manufacturing company.  It was empty for decades when it closed.  The new owners think it was never really been abandoned.

Tuesday, 4:56pm

 Jason, Steve & Tango meet with a mother and son took over the first floor and turned it into a restaurant, Time-Out Sports Bar & Grill.  The son, Nick Koloski, got bit in the bar and had 3 visible scratch marks.  From shows I’ve watched and things I’ve read, 3 marks is usually thought to be demonic.  In another instance, Nick was standing on a ladder in the storage room.  The ladder started to shake.  Mary Koloski, the mom, heard a crashing sound in the kitchen.  A bar stool was on the ground.  Other employees have seen shadow figures, heard voices and footsteps on the 3rd, 4th and 5th floor.  Matthew Miller, Manger, tells us a story of closing up one night alone and, as headed out, he saw a figure walk across the bar towards the kitchen.  When he went to check…nothing.  Customers claim to see people on the upper floors through the windows.  The legend is that adults and child workers met with grizzly deaths at the mill.  Nick says the employees don’t want to go to certain areas alone and would like to make sure it’s nothing harmful that is there.

Adam looks at Amy’s baby girl through the thermal.  I love Adam!  He says he can see her head and her “booty”.

UGH Britt and Ashley *sigh*.  Ashley saved some face with me last week by not seeing/hearing every time other did.  It gave me hope that she isn’t going to be a Britt.

Jay and Steve are on the 4th floor at 9:41pm.  They enter a room and have a base reading of .2.  It rises to a .5 and .6 and they hear a voice.  Steve says it’s 2 guys…it’s a conversation.  “Did you make furniture in here?”, Steve asks.  We could hear a voice.  Jay thinks the voice asked “What are you doing?”.  Steve said he didn’t hear it long enough to get phonetics.  Something I’ve noticed…since Grant has been gone and Steve is investigating with Jay….Steve seems to have more experiences.  I’m not sure what my opinion on that is.   Does more happen around Jay?  Is it more for TV?  I don’t know.  I always put a lot of faith in Steve & Tango when they were together because they didn’t always have experiences whereas everybody else on the show did/does.  It made Steve and Tango more trustworthy.  Now that Steve is with Jay…I just don’t know what to think.  Steve sounds so sincere…I believe him.  Jay saw a light at the end of the hall that Steve saw at the very end.  Jay says it’s like the room illuminated on it’s own at that end and there even lights IN the room.

Britt and Ashley are in the restaurant/bar area at 10:20pm.  I would never ever put these 2 together.  Britt is telling Ashley about Nick’s experience on the ladder.  Britt climbs up the ladder and the 2 set off to debunk by having Ashley shake the ladder and see if she can run away before he can see her.  She isn’t able to do it.  Britt says the ladder is a wobbly ladder.  The split second after Ashley asks “Did you shake our friend Nick’s ladder?”…she heard something which, of course, means Britt heard it too.  I can’t imagine the mass hysteria these 2 could cause.  Ashley thinks it’s a laugh.  They play the recording back and we hear, I admit, a laugh.  They get a .5 reading and Ashley feels a hot spot on her hand….like being a little too close to a match.  Ashley is very comfortable in asking questions…seems professional.  Britt sees something move on the other side of room right as we go to commercial.

5 hours into the investigation.  Britt sees a black mass move.  He says it was short, dark and solid.  Ashley sees a shadow but it isn’t Britt’s.  They get a fluctuation in the EMF.

STEVE & TANGO!!!  STEVE & TANGO!  *happy dance* It’s 11:17pm and my favorite guys are together!  They’re on the 3rd floor.  Geez, I HOPE that was a painting they just walked past LOL.  Otherwise, it was a very vivid male apparition with his hand on his hip LOL.  A lot of apparitions are seen on this floor the guys tell us.  One stays in and one goes out.  OMG I love them so much.  They rock, paper, scissors…winner stays inside.  They can’t get their timing right…and I love them!  Steve goes out and Dave Tango stays inside.  My poor Steve, he’s in the rain…and just walked through a puddle.  I adore them!  I wish they had been at Scarefest.  Tango talks and says he’s looking for furniture and then says people see them.  Steve asks what window Dave is in front of.  They flashlight plays games with them.

Amy and Jay investigate the restaurant/bar area at 11:39pm.  Pregnant Amy is adorable!  After Amy asks if the spirit is a boy or girl they hear something.  They say it’s a male voice but they only hear it when they talk about children.  Amy sees something that peaked out and went back in.  Jay investigates but doesn’t find anything.

On the 5th floor at 12:11am we’re with Ashley and our loving Adam.  They don’t have anything happen on the 5th floor so they head down to the 4th floor.  Britt and Amy, Adam tells us, are on the ground floor.

Amy & Britt are in the vacant area on the ground floor at 12:28am.  They set up the shadow detector.

Ashley really seems a natural at asking questions.  Adam hears something shuffle behind him.  In split screen, Amy hears something above her and the show detector goes off.  Amy has Adam walk around to see if it’s his footsteps she heard.  It’s not.  There’s a rumbling sound behind Adam and Ashley….who I just may be coming around to liking.

Wednesday, 12:40am

Adam and Ashley heard a growl…Britt, who is with Amy, heard the growl (of course) but Amy heard a sliding sound.  They’re all off to look.  Britt checks his smart phone because they’re able to see the DVRs!  COOL!  Nobody is able to figure out what it was.  Both teams continue to reach out.  Britt, obviously, hears or sees something.  Amy asks if there are wood palets where Adam. Yes.  She asks him to scoot them and to see if them scooting it makes the sound.  Everybody thinks it’s what they might have heard.  Adam thanks whomever is up there.

Jay calls to end the investigation.

Jason and Steve go back to Topstone Mill and meet with Nicholas and Mary with their finds.  They first play them the audio of footsteps above Amy and Britt.  Steve talks about how weird it is, on an investigation, when you have stopped walking and the person you’re working with has stopped walking…and you still hear footsteps.  Jay tells them, and plays for them, the giggle caught by Britt and Ashley.  Followed by he and Amy being together and whenever Amy would ask about children…they would get something…including Amy seeing something.  They play the audio and we hear a sound…they say it sounds female but, to me, it sounds like something moving…like sometime when you move something heavy and it makes a squeaking sound as it rubs against whatever it’s resting on.  Jason points out that when the building was built was the prime time for child labor.  Mary and Nick didn’t know this.  Mary said all she’s ever heard are male voices so hearing a female voice interests her.  On the 4th floor, when Jay & Steve were together and they heard a conversation.  They play a voice for the mother and son.  Before we hear it and before commercial, the mom says it’s the voice she hears all of the time.  Jason explains that if a spirit tries to touch you and you don’t feel it…they may be more aggressive to get you to notice them.  They suggest they act like having the spirits there are 2nd nature because the spirits feed off of them.  The team doesn’t think the owners or employees have anything to fear.

Case #2
Rockford, Illinois
Tinker Cottage

The cottage was built in 1865 by Robert Tinker, 3 generations of the family have lived and died in the home…up until 1943.  Now it’s a museum that’s open to the public.  Claims are full bodied apparitions looking out of windows, people sitting on benches in the gardens…

Wednesday, 6:22pm 

Jason, Tango and Steve meet with Steve Litteral, Director of Operations.  Steve’s concern is that this was a home to the Tinker family while they were alive…is also their home in death.   Everybody has experiences, Dave tells them.  Jeff Schell, Docent, tells us that he saw a shadow and then a door closed.  Ashley Downing, Curator of Collections that she was giving a tour and heard footsteps followed by laughter…the group heard it too.  Mark Schwabe, visitor, said he walked in to the library and looked at the beautiful ceiling.  He claims to have seen a male figure.  At least 8 funerals have taken place in the house.  Everything in the house is original to the family.  Something in the house could have a strong attachment to an item(s) in the house.  Claims are a woman screaming in the basement, a rocking chair that moves in the library and shadowy figure seen in the red room upstairs and alarms going off for no reason.  Alix Fox, Education Coordinator, says she has gotten alerts that there’s motion in the kitchen, sitting room and parlor.  She said it’s as if something is moving between the rooms.

Looks like the team this time is Jason, Steve, Tango, Adam, KJ, Ashley, Haily & (ugh) Britt.  There’sa lot of Limestone around the house…often paranormal activity is reported around limestone.

At 10:12pm, Steve & Jay are in the basement checking the motion detector and realize that only something with mass will set it off.  Jay, oh my, he’s not going to turn into Britt is he?  He heard a creak almost right off…that seems to be happening more and more often.  The two hear or see something but we have to wait until after the commercial break.

Wednesday, 10:20pm

3 hours into the investigation.  A door opened, one under the steps…think Harry Potter’s cupboard under the stairs.  They try a few different things to get the door to open…no luck.

In the main house at 12:14am we have Adam, Haily and Tango.  The EMFs are normal.  They all hear a noise.  Adam calls out names of family members that have lived in the house. Haily hears a rustling sound from the red room….like clothes rubbing back and forth.  They all hear a knock.

Britt, Ashley and KJ are in the parlor at 1:44am.  The 3 look at a family tree and call out names of family members that died in the house.  Well, how un-odd…Britt is the first to hear something.  REM-Pod and K2 both go off.   Britt always seems  confrontational.  The rocking chair begins to rock but it’s noticed after Britt stands up from the floor.  “When it doubt throw it out” Steve & Tango would tell them.  KJ hears a creak.

Jason and Steve are on the 2nd floor landing at 2:41am.  Steve is trying to make contact but Jason seems distracted and looking out.  He hears a conversation he tells Steve.  They hear a female voice. Steve says something spit on him!  It’s on his ankle!  I should note that he and Jay were kneeling at the balcony when this happened.

Thursday, 2:52am

8 hours into the investigation and we’re back with Jason and Steve.  Steve says it feels like water and he doesn’t believe in ectoplasm.  The entire back of his ankle is wet but nothing on the floor.

Jay ends the investigation.

Friday, 1:30pm

They tell about Steve’s leg getting wet and the door opening.  They show him video of them walking by the door and you can see it’s closed.  They show him a video that shows the rocking chair.  About 1 second after Britt stopped moving the rocking chair started moving.  They play audio of when KJ, Ashley and Britt were together.  Now when Britt, KJ and Ashley…audio of a woman.  When the team would call out names, it would be after the name Dorr would be mentioned that they would hear things.  Dorr was Robert Tinker’s wife maiden name.  Robert built a suspension bridge across Kent Creek linking the Cottage with his wife Mary Dorr Manny Tinker’s mansion.
