Hillview Manor was built in 1925 as the Lawrence County Poor Farm. It became a nursing home in 1977, and closed it’s doors in 2004, but it sure as heck hasn't shut down for business - the paranormal business. Investigators have heard muffled voices, the sounds of people walking on the stairs, banging noises, lights going on and off, and activity from the deserted kitchen and nursing stations. There have seen physical phenomena, too - shadow forms, a flitting orange shape, and a woman in a doorway. Maybe it's the old home's most famous spook, Mary Virginia, a patient who had a liking for shiny objects. The skeleton crew that takes care of the building has reported sightings of full-bodied apparitions roaming the hallways, screaming voices and the ghost of a little boy named Jeffrey, who is thought of as a harbinger of death. The spirit of an old man supposedly haunts the boiler room. He’s known for slamming doors and demanding people to get out of his space. Other spirits include a childen named Timmy & Jeffrey, an employee named George, and a elderly patient named Mary Ellen.


Synopsis or Personal experiences:

This was our first attempt to investigate Hill View during the daytime.  We had the place for 16 hours, from noon to 4 am.  Expectations were high, but compared to our last trip, the spirits were definitely not obliging us.

Mike was able to recreate the noises he heard back in August in room 206.  There was a shower curtain bar with hooks in the bathroom adjacent.  When you moved them back and forth, it recreated the noise.  While this explains the noise, it adds to the mystery since we know for a fact that nobody was even on the same floor as Mike when this occured.

          Here is the clip from August:

          Here is the clip of the recreation:  

Personal Experiences:

    10:30pm - Mark and Missy saw a shadow figure walk into the organ room on 1st floor North.  

    11:20p - After leaving room 206, Troy saw a shadow enter into the bathroom on the 2nd floor.  Mike, Vance and Troy chased it into the bathroom but could not find or explain it.
