Ovilus Communications 6/11/16 Weekend

Sunday night, we had a guest that started Jack’s cemetery hunt as very much a skeptic. She looked startled but did not speak up when the Ovilus called out a man’s name. She looked startled again but still did not speak up when it said some other things. But after one more instance, she pulled…

Now THAT will get your attention!

Last night, the Ovilus called a guest by name, both first AND last! When his date said, “Did that just say ____ ____?!!” it then called his date by name! Also, we just got a message from one of our old guests, who said that when he was on the hunt some time back, Anna…

Help, We’re Haunted!

Despite our earlier declarations to the contrary, it appears our shop may be haunted. We discovered recently that our building is the oldest commercial building in downtown, but while age bodes well for ghosts, it does not guarantee spirited activity. However, the occurrences of the past few weeks have reached the level of “unexplainable.” Often…

TBT – The Shoe-Eating Ghost

Around this time last year, Hope went through FOUR pairs of shoes in two days to SOMETHING on the tour, which for lack of a better word we named “The Shoe Eating Ghost.” One pair simply tore as she was leading the group, causing her to wrench her foot near a so-called “lounge” on Market…

The Lady in White Makes an Appearance

The family which took the amazing photo of the bride of Patten Chapel came back the very next weekend to see if the hunt would be active again, and they were not disappointed!

Run! It’s Coming!

Our ghost hunt on June 29 was especially creepy. We believe it was the monk who repeatedly gave warnings- “Run!”, “It’s coming!”, “Turn left,” and “It’s here!” among others. It also called one of our guests, “Cayla,” by name, and seemed framed shakespeare garden to be addressing these warnings to her. At the time of…

Guided by the Spirits

Our 2013 hunts were VERY active. One of the most impressive was when Donnie was about to cross from the campus to the cemetery with his group, when suddenly the Ovilus said “Distress! Distress!” It startled them, so it held them up for a second or two. Right then, a driver came flying around the…
