Southern Mansion Inn

In Cape May, New Jersey, sits a mansion shrouded in earth tones and the privilege of a warm history. George Allen, a Philadelphia merchant, commissioned a country estate for his family and future descendents in 1863. He chose the location because it was South of the Mason-Dickson line and allowed him to do business with both Confederate and Rebel soldiers during the Civil War. Internationally acclaimed architect Samuel Sloan designed the seaside palace and Henri Phillipi built it. In 1879, the beloved summer home escaped a great fire that swept over Cape May. However, after eighty-three years, it couldn’t escape the neglect an owner could inflict upon it.

George Allen’s niece, Ester Mercur passed away in 1946. Her husband, Ulysses sold the house and all of its furnishings for a mere $8,000. The property was bought for the sole purpose of income-producing and soon went in to a transition to be a boarding house. The interior was partitioned to create a multitude of small rooms. The exterior earth tones washed away to white. The whole renovation left the structure weakened. Nearly fifty years and neglect, caused it to be wounded. In the 1980’s, the boarding-house license was revoked, leaving the mansion to fall deeper in to despair. However, all was not lost.

In 1994, another Philadelphia family would revive the original splendor. The Bray/Wildes sorted through all the important furnishings, artwork, family mementos and heirlooms into four tractor-trailers, removing twenty-five dumpster loads of garbage. Then began an eighteen month process to restore the Mansion and surrounding grounds.  Outside, the entire house was ground down to the bare wood and repainted in the original earth-tones and all five chimneys were rebuilt using the original bricks. The slate and tin roofs, copper gutters, brackets, porches, soffits, trims, moldings and fascia boards were replaced. Finally, the finial was re-gilded, the entire grounds were tamed and the Italian gardens were re-established. Inside, all of the original architectural elements, furnishings, including the gasolier fixtures, walls, ceilings, floors, stairs, doors and windows have been restored to their original splendor. The 30 inch granite basement walls were waterproofed and phase I of the project was complete.

With a rejuvenated appearance came a new name. The new owners named the structure The Southern Mansion after seeing a Samuel Sloan lithograph of the house titled the same. The doors reopened in 1996 but construction was far from being over. A South Wing was added which came with ten additional guest suites, twelve bathrooms, a second ballroom, a commercial kitchen, three balconies, a gallery, verandah, solarium and two magnificent circular staircases. The project was complete in 1997.

While the Mansion didn’t see a sleuth of violence, renovations stirred up a bit of the past. Ester Mercur who loved the summer home is believed to still reside in it. She is seen and heard throughout the house, particularly in the kitchen and Room 9. Guests and employees often get a whiff of perfume in reception where people are also touched or pulled. Shadows have been seen moving about in the foyer. A Confederate soldier has been spotted walking through a wall in to the lower ballroom. A male and female are often seen and heard conversing in Room 14. This 147 year old mansion was rescued from decay and is now being enjoyed by guests and ghosts alike.

GS Question of the Week

What do you look for in a good paranormal TV show?

Aye-Aye


If you think you've never laid eyes on this ghoulish nocturnal animal, you might be wrong. Many people all over the world watched the creature play out a comedic way of life on film screens in animated form. Children know the aye-aye from the character Maurice in the movie Madagascar. However, in real life, the creature is facing some fatal realities of life.

It's mere appearance and nature may have led to its "near threatened" status. The Aye-Aye ways between four to six pounds with dark eyes, long fingers (the middle being longer than the rest) and overall devilish appearance. They live high in the trees of the Madagascar rain forest where they build nests of twigs and leaves and only feast on insect larvae. They don't fear humans. Their curiousity sometimes leads them to their deaths.

Villagers believe seeing an aye-aye means you will soon die. According to legend, the aye-aye is thought to sneak into the dwellings of nearby villagers and use its middle finger to pierce the hearts of sleeping humans.Thus, when one spotted, their encounter with humans often follows immediately by death despite being protected by law. This combined with deforestation causes this unique creature's numbers to dwindle. If something is not done, they may eventually meet extinction.

The Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is among the world’s most widely known landmarks. Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west and stretches for 8,851.8 km. Most believe this barrier was built in the names of war and bloodshed. However, it’s true purpose was for peace. Qi, Jin, Chu, Qin, Lu and Zheng States were the most powerful states among the 149 located in China. Each struggled for power. Thus leading to each section being built between 5th century B.C. and the 16th century. The first wall was arguably built around seven centuries B.C. by the Chu State, powerful prince enfeoffed by the Zhou Kingdom and flourish during the Spring and Autumn Period (B.C. 770 ~ 476). Although, it’s true origins is unknown.

Each state added a section or more all for similar purposes. More than twenty states and dynasties built their own walls throughout history. Some parts are of different materials and various shapes. Some sections were made from rammed Earth and gravel between boards. Others bricks, tiles, lime or stones. Built to withstand the attack of small arms such as swords and spears. Signal towers were built upon hill tops or other high points along the wall for their visibility in case reinforcements needed to be called in or warn of approaching garrisons. This Wonder of the World continues to be of great fascination for historians. It’s also believed to be one of the most haunted locations in the world.

Two to three million people died created The Great Wall from accidents or other methods. Tourists have met with sudden uneasiness and illnesses such as nausea, headaches and body pains. Others have reported seeing apparitions, being grabbed, punched and slapped. There’s even a myth that states “If you visit the Great Wall, the spirits of the fallen workers will haunt you until you cross a line of firecrackers to scare them away”.

Absecon Lighthouse

Absecon Lighthouse, located in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is the 3rd tallest masonry lighthouse in the United States. A structure which extends 171 feet in to the sky and 228 steps to reach the top. In April 1854, the Powhatan wrecked off the coast. Three hundred and eleven passengers and crew were lost. This tragedy was only one of many earning the Absecon Inlet the nick name of “Graveyard Inlet”.

In an effort to prevent further wrecks, the U.S. Lighthouse Service commissioned funding from Congress to build a lighthouse on Absecon Island. Designed by Lt. George Meade, the construction began in 1854.  Lt. Meade replaced Major Hartman Bache to oversee the building. He would later go on to command the Union Army at Gettysburg. The first lighting took place on January 15, 1857 with a kerosene flame focused through a huge 36-plate, First-Order Fresnel lens (which it still retains). The final cost was $52,436.62. The white light shone brightly towards the sea. One could spot it 19.6 nautical miles from shore. The Absecon Lighthouse served its purpose for many years until being decommissioned in 1933. Since then, the tower has been restored and the lost Keeper’s house rebuilt.

Reports of paranormal activity date back to 1905 when one such keeper claimed to have spotted the Jersey Devil at the top of the tower. Since then, visitors and employees have experienced activity such as smells of pipe and cigar smoke, sounds of footsteps in the tower and the sound of the tower door opening/closing. Dimes have been said to appear in strange locations and partial apparitions have been seen. Not to mention the reports of eerie laughter. Seven deaths have occurred on the property. Thus, is the Absecon Lighthouse haunted by former lighthouse keepers and their families?

GS Question of the Week

Do you think someone with an unusual status such as psychic, medium, or even paranormal investigator could ever be elected president? Why or why not?

A Vampire in the White House

Many debate whether the modern vampire sub cultural should be respected or a fad not worth sweating about not to mention those who isn't swayed either way. We as a country elected our first black president. Is a vampire president going to be our next first? Jonathon “The Impaler” Sharkey certainly hopes so. The 45 yr old Republican with the support of his 19 yr old fiancee, daughter of the same age and 2 yr old grandson is set to file paperwork to run for President of the United States in 2012. He is currently documenting his journey in a film titled The True Impaler.

Sharkey is no novice when it comes to politics. He was once on the Executive Committee of the Hillsborough Co. Republican Party (HCRP) in the 1990s. Later ran for Governor of Minnesota in 2006 and also had short-lived bids for U.S. Senate in 2000, U.S. President in 2004, and U.S. President in 2008. And recently switched his party affiliation from Independent to Republican to run with the G.O.P. Although his vampire status may be the least of his public relation worries.

Sharkey has often bragged about his dating taste towards teenage girls stating "I haven’t dated a girl older than 19 since 2006". Was even accused of "brainwashing" a 16 yr old from Minnesota. The couple was engaged until last month. Her family has since obtained a restraining order against. He also allegedly admitted to harassing another 16 yr old girl from the same state. This not to mention him being arrested a few years ago for intimidating a judge. Sharkey spent six months in a Tennessee jail before being released. He is still currently under probation.

Will an alleged descendant of Vlad the Impaler be our next president?

Paddy Reilly's Pub

Paddy Reilly was born in Dublin, Ireland on October 18th, 1939. Among his Irish brethren, he is known as the country's most famous balladeers. For years, he performed as a solo artist in public establishments such as The Embankment and the Ballad Lounge. With the success of such songs as "The Fields of Athenry" and "The Town I Loved So Well", Reilly toyed with the idea of opening a few pubs.

One such pub named after the famous folk singer is located on the corner of 29th St and 2nd Ave in New York City. Paddy Reilly's Pub was opened in 1985 by an Irish footballer from Cavan, Ireland. The small establishment provides customers with the warmth and atmosphere of Ireland. Such bands as Black 47, The Prodigals and The Mickey finns have performed on its stage. Paddy Reilly once owned the pub but has since passed the buck to former partner Steve Duggan.

Reilly went on to replace Ronnie Drew in The Dubliners in 1996 until 2005 when he left the group. He still owns several bars in New York. Paddy Reilly's Pub still provides customers an authentic Irish experience. However, will the sightings of a ghostly apparition, whispers and shadows discourage visitors from wanting a taste of Ireland's charm or make the pub popular than ever?

GS Question of the Week

What will you miss most about Peter Graves?

Masada

Standing tall in the South District of Israel overlooking the Dead Sea is a site of ancient palaces and fortifications known as Masada. Carved in to an isolated rock plateau, the site contained cliffs as high as 1,300 feet, casemate walls, towers, storehouses, barracks, armory, two luxurious palaces, a Roman bathhouse, a synagogue and twelve huge cisterns. Three winding paths led to the fortified gates (although today visitors have the option to use the cable car).

The fortress was originally constructed during the reign of Alexander Jannaeus (103–76 BCE) and later expanded by Herod the Great between 37 and 31 BCE as a refuge for himself in case a revolt broke out. However, Masada saw its greatest moment of despair years later. In 66 CE, a group of Jewish extremists called the Sicarii and their families fled Jerusalem after the destruction of the Second Temple during the First Jewish-Roman War. Commanded by Elazar ben Ya'ir, the group barracked themselves at Masada, mocking the Romans sent to capture them.

In 72, the Roman governor of Iudaea Lucius Flavius Silva marched against Masada with the Roman legion X Fretensis and laid siege to the fortress. The Romans set up eight siege camps surrounding Masada. They failed to breach the wall and was forced to build a circumvallation wall as well as a rampart against the western face of the plateau, using thousands of tons of stones, beaten earth and maybe a few Jewish slaves. It's uncertain whether or not the Sicarii attempted to counteract their attempts. However, action needed to be taken. Elazar ordered his men to burn everything. The next phase kept the Sicarii from falling in to Roman slavery. A lottery determined who would be the last person left. One by one, each were killed until the last man standing. Judaism strongly discourages suicide. During this mass suicide, only one person actually died by their own hand, the last man left standing.

After months of siege, the Romans managed to finally breach the walls with a battering ram on April 16th. All their efforts led to a major disappointment. Upon entering the fortress, they found buildings burned and 960 inhabitants dead. Two women and five children were the only ones left alive hidden inside one of the cistern.

The site of Masada was identified in 1842 and extensively excavated between 1963 and 1965 by an expedition led by Israeli archeologist Yigael Yadin. Because of its remote location, it has remained mostly untouched by humans and nature. The synagogue (oldest in the world), storehouses, and houses as well as many of the other buildings have been restored. The Roman ramp still stands on the Western side for visitors to climb. Although, many historians believe the mass suicide was extremely exaggerated or perhaps never happened at all. Some have made their mission in life to prove or dispute 1st century Jewish-Roman historian Josephus Flavius dramatic details of the Sicarii suicide.

If it did take place, does it explain why Masada is believed to be haunted? Visitors have reported hearing moaning, voices, wailing and whistling. With the fortress' location, the bad acoustics could explain away some of these claims. But what about sightings of apparitions and shadows? Is Israel's national symbol haunted by the blood shed by 960 people or has the myth taken on a life of its own?

MonsterQuest

MonsterQuest is a series on The History Channel which explores the field of cryptozoology. Unlike Destination Truth, their style is more documentary than entertaining. Each week they tackle a subject for example Bigfoot or Loch Ness Monster and try to explain the monster with science: interview witnesses, test evidence, etc. Probably one of the most professional paranormal shows on the air.

Unfortunately, it may have hit a snag. After four seasons, there are rumors circulating the web of its pending cancellation. Supposedly, MonsterQuest is on a short list of shows in danger of not being renewed. I haven't found anything from The History Channel confirming these rumors, but it would be a shame if they did give it the ax. It's refreshing to have something paranormal on TV that sticks to the facts and not so worried about the entertainment value. I mean it is The History Channel. It's not like you're going to switch on the channel and find George Lopez doing stand-up comedy.

Whether or not MonsterQuest is in danger of being canceled, let The History Channel know what you think about it: http://www.aetn.com/global/feedback/contact.jsp?site=HistoryChannel.com&NetwCode=THC

Fort Ticonderoga

Fort Ticonderoga's roots began as a French military fort known as Fort Carillon between 1755 and 1759 during the Seven Years War. It's main purpose was to help control Lake Champlain in upstate New York and essentially the north-south water highway. Only one in a series that the French built. Designed by Michel Chartier de Lotbinière and named after former French officer Philippe de Carrion du Fresnoy who established a trading post at the site in the late 17th Century.

On July 8, 1758 the Fort was successfully defended by a French army of 3500 soldiers under the command of Louis-Joseph le Marquis de Montcalm. This victory was one of France's greatest due to being severely outnumber by an attacking British army of 16,000 troops under the command of General James Abercromby. However, the victory would be short lived. A year later, General Jeffery Amerst and the British army of 11,000 troops defeated a garrison of 400 Frenchmen in the Battle of Ticonderoga. They evacuated after blowing up the powder magazine and warehouse. The British allowed the fort to fall in to disarray. Along with a small garrison of soldiers, made it an easy mark for any enemy.

In 1775, the country provided the setting of yet another war, the American Revolution. Ethan Allen, Benedict Arnold, and the Green Mountain Boys slowly crossed Lake Champlain from Vermont during the dawn hours of May 10th. As the small British garrison slept, they crept on to the fort and captured their first victory. This would be the first of several battles for control over the fort. For two years, Fort Ticonderoga was the centerpiece for the American Army against invading Canadian and British forces. New fortifications were built across Lake Champlain on Mount Independence. During the summer of 1776 a fleet of small warships or gondolas where rigged and fitted out to later be used in the Battle of Valcour Island. In July 1777 the British General Burgoyne managed to place cannon on Mount Defiance and forced the Fort's garrison under General Arthur St. Clair to evacuate on July 6th. Months later, American forces to conduct a final raid. The small group of soldiers would fail. It took the British surrendering at Yorktown in 1781 for the fort to finally be abandoned.

The fort became the property of the state of New York in 1785. William Ferris Pell purchased the ruins of the Fort and the surrounding "garrison grounds" to preserve it in 1820. He built The Pavilion to serve as a summer home. The completion of canals and railroads brought a surge of tourists. Pell turned The Pavilion in to a Fort Ticonderoga Hotel to accommodate the new attraction in 1840. Another generation of Pell family, Stephen and Sarah Gibbs Thompson Pell, began restoration of the fort in 1909. Even opened it up to the public with President Taft in attendance. Today, much of Fort Ticonderoga has been restored and recreated and remains opened for tours and special events.

Red glowing orbs have been seen floating throughout several of the rooms. Many believe Nancy Coates, mistress to General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, haunts the fort. She thought Wayne had left her for another woman and drowned herself in Lake Champlain. Visitors have seen her running about the footpaths in search of Wayne, waiting by the gate at the entrance. She has also been heard sobbing and her alleged lifeless body spotted floating in the lake. Numerous artifacts located at Fort Ticonderoga have been found moved in locked cases. A British soldier has been seen in the upper window of the south barracks. The Pavilion is believed to be haunted by Sarah Pell. She has been seen staring out of the window overlooking the King's Garden.

Fort Ticonderoga possesses a history of bloody battles and an entire 460 acre garrison grounds full of unmarked graves. It will always be haunted by the echoes of its past.

GS Question of the Week

Do you think mystery lights seen in places such as Marfa, TX have a more natural origins than supernatural?

Ghost Bottles for Sale

There have been several...unusual objects that have come up for auction over the years. The latest are two bottles filled with blue "holy water" and well...a ghost at TradeMe auction website. Supposedly, a man in New Zealand enlisted the help from a couple of spiritual leaders for a nearby church to perform an exorcism on his house. The results were two spirits, one believed to be Les Graham who died in the house in the 1920s and the other is that of a little girl. The blue "holy water" keeps them safely at rest. If you want to release them in to your home, you pour the water in a bowl and let it evaporate in your house. So far, the bidding has reached £275.

When an item such as this pops on to radar, I usually write it off as a scam. I mean seriously. It sounds like a scam, right? But this one got me curious. How do you get a ghost to go in to a bottle? Do you lure it in with a treat or something? This led to my latest fishing expedition. From what I found, you can't trap a ghost in a bottle or any other inanimate object. Ghosts can become attached to an object but can't be forced in to one. If someone can prove otherwise, I'm open to hearing about the process. Otherwise, I'm considering it all a hoax that has gained fame thanks to a people like John Deese, who sells ghost bottles at $20 per item, the man in New Zealand, and John McMenamin who was selling an Irish ghost in 2004 on eBay that allegedly caught the attention of the late Michael Jackson.

Alcatraz

The time is here. After several seasons, Ghost Hunters have reached their 100th episode. According to some, this is a milestone very few TV programs ever reach. What location does one investigate for such a huge night? Alcatraz of course. Tonight we will be honored with an hour of the Alcatraz investigation followed by another LIVE hour with Josh Gates returning to his hosting duties. Allow me to dive in to the history of Alcatraz and why so many people believe it is haunted.

Native Americans discovered the island 10,000 to 20,000 years prior to the Europeans. It is believed the Miwok and Ohlone tribes used the island as a camping spot for gathering food and marine life. Long before one single stone was laid of the believed "inescapable" prison, tradition implies the island may have also been used as a place to banish tribal members who violated tribal law. Unfortunately, oral histories have been lost and not much can be validated. Spaniard Juan Manuel de Ayala spent several weeks charting the San Francisco Bay. In his surveys he described a rocky island which he name "La Isla de los Alcatraces" or "The Island of Pelicans". There was much debate as to which island he was referring to but the title was given to Alcatraz.

Julian Workman was the earliest recorded owner of Alcatraz Island. He acquired it from Mexican governor Pio Pico in June 1846 for the sole purpose of building a lighthouse. The actual first lighthouse on the West Coast located on the island was built and went in to operation on June 1, 1854. Later that year, Military Governor of California, John C. Fremont, champion of Manifest Destiny and leader of the Bear Flag Republic, bought the island for $5000 in the name of the United States government from Francis Temple. The United States took possession of California on February 2, 1848 in a treaty with Mexico thus ending the Mexican War. In 1850, President Millard Filmore ordered the island be set aside for military purposes only and the US Army began studying the island for its suitability to protect the San Francisco Bay. This study led to a fort being built and completed in December 1859. During the American Civil War, Alcatraz was the largest fort west of the Mississippi River.

While Native Americans may have seen its punishment potential, the US Army only began sending soldier convicts to the fort in 1860. Over the following forty years, the it's defense purposes slowly gave way to imprisonment. However, it wasn't officially designated as a military prison until 1907 and acquired a new name in 1915, "Pacific Branch, U.S. Disciplinary Barracks". Thanks to the Spanish American War, a larger detainment unit was needed. Prisoners spent days constructing many of the buildings located on the island. The demolished Citadel, a three-story barracks, gave way to rumors of "dungeons" being located below the main cell block. The last soldiers and final military role of Alcatraz came in 1933.

A year later, the Bureau of Prisons quickly converted the aging military prison in to a maximum security, civilian penitentiary. "The prison with in the prison system" was located and designed to be virtually escape-proof. No court could sentence anyone to Alcatraz. You had to be labeled the "Most Troublesome Inmate" in your prison to get a ticket to The Rock. That is until you settle down and become civil enough to be sent back. It house such notable criminals as Al Capone, Robert Franklin Stroud a.k.a. the Birdman of Alcatraz, George "Machine Gun" Kelly, James "Whitey" Bulger, and Alvin Karpis (who served more time at Alcatraz than any other inmate).

The federal penitentiary provided a model for "escape-proof" prisons all over the world. However, Alcatraz was involved in fourteen separate escape attempts by thirty-six prisoners. Twenty-three men were caught. Six died by gunshot and two drown. The most infamous escape took place on June 11, 1962. Frank Morris, John Anglin and Clarence Anglin successfully carried out one of the most intricate escapes ever devised. Plywood paddles and parts of the raincoat raft were discovered on nearby Angel Island but the official report states the inmates drowned while trying to reach the mainland. the Mythbusters took this escape on and determined it is quite plausible they made it to shore with their lives intact. We may never know if they actually survived or not. Some may think this little embarrassment on the prison's record led to it shutting down. However, Attorney General Robert Kennedy cited increasing maintenance and operational costs as the reason why Alcatraz ceased operations. On March 1, 1963, the last federal prisoners were removed from the island.

After laying dormant for six years, American Indians re-entered the island's history. Activists seized Alcatraz and declared it Indian Land on November 20, 1969. A group of Native Americans from various tribes relocated to the island and proposed an education center, ecology center and cultural center. The Sioux Treaty of 1868 stated that all abandoned or unused federal land adjacent to the Sioux Reservation could be reclaimed by descendant of the Sioux Nation. It was that exact reason that led to nineteen months and nine days of occupation and the damage or destruction of several buildings by fire. Though the actual origins of the fires are unknown. During the occupation, the Indian termination policy, designed to end federal recognition of tribes, was rescinded by President Richard Nixon, and the new policy of self-determination was established. The occupation ended on June 11, 1971. This occupation played a huge role in Native American rights and led to the U.S. Government returning land to several tribes as well as influencing the Longest Walk in 1985.

Golden Gate National Recreation Area, a unit of the National Park Service, was established by Congress in 1972 as a way to bring "parks to the people." Alcatraz was first opened to the people in October 1973. Each year, more than 1.3 million visitors travel to Alcatraz Island. Native Americans return to the island each November to hold a sunrise ceremony commemorating their 1969 occupation of the former prison. The lighthouse is still operational. The island’s twin foghorns still send out their throaty roars as summer fogs creep in through the Golden Gate. An added element which shrouds in Alcatraz in mystery.

There are many reports regarding Alcatraz Island's paranormal side. It has been labeled "The World's Most Haunted Prison" But will it live up to its reputation? In the Utility Corridor, Coy, Cretzer and Hubbard were shot to death during a failed prison escape. There are reports of unexplained clanging sounds coming from inside. The 1854 lighthouse was damaged in the Great San Francisco Earthquake in 1906 and was demolished. Today, the old lighthouse suddenly appears followed by a strange whistling noise and a green light that travels all around the island before vanishing. One of the "hole" cells, Cell 14D, is believed to be plagued with spirits. Visitors and employees have reported cold spots and a sudden "intense" feeling in the cell. In the 1940s, an inmate located in Cell 14D screamed throughout the night that he was being killed by a creature with glowing eyes. The next day guards discovered the man strangled to death. While doing a head counts the next day, they came up with one too many prisoners. Some guards believed they saw the dead convict in line with the others a second before he vanished.

One of Alcatraz most famous convicts, Al Capone, spent his last years there. His health declined due to untreated syphilis. Fearing he would be killed during his recreational time in the "yard", he took up banjo playing in a prison band and was allowed to practice in the shower room. In recent years, visitors and employees have reported hearing banjo music emanating from the shower room and prison walls. Other paranormal reports include ghostly apparitions of former prisoners and military personnel, whistling, orbs, doors clanging, men screaming, crying, moaning, the smell of smoke in the absence of fire and intense feels of being watched.
