The Hinsdale House, aka the Dandy House) has all the elements of a good ghost story: a mysterious history, strange sightings, unexplainable events and even an exorcism.

The house on McMahon Road first gained notoriety when a book, "Echoes of a Haunting," was published in September 2000 by Xlibris Corp. written by Clara Miller/Dandy. Clara and Phil Dandy lived in the house along with their children in the early 1970s.  During their time there, they were visited by many spirits. Father Alphonsus, a priest from St. Bonaventure University was at the house more than once to perform a blessing which worked for awhile but as time went by the Dandy family lost the battle and ended up leaving the house for good.


Synopsis or Personal experiences:

  • 8:00 - Walk through - several of us became disoriented and had to leave the house.
  • 8:30 - Before we could even get our equipment setup, our K2’s started going crazy.  Nikki was hit in the leg with a piece of dried up corn.  (See video below).
  • 09:30 - Clara's room - All 3 girls see a shadow moving in the corner. Missy asks why are you hiding in the shadows and the shadow turns toward her and comes at her.  All 3 girls see it and run like hell.  (See video)
  • 11:00 - Missy and Heather experience the bed in Mary’s room shaking as they sat on it.
  • 11:30 - Mike feels a darkness coming over him which Kim also sees.
  • 01:30 - The heaviness has lifted and the house seems quiet so the team decides to split up and try to sleep.  Mike takes Mary’s room, where Missy and Heather hear footsteps.  Meanwhile, downstairs a shadow shows up in our video.
  • Afterwards - Missy feels a connection to the name Lucy and has dreams about it.

Missy asks about shadow, gets an SB response

Mike asks spirits to speak up and they oblige

Very interesting EVP on 2nd floor, “Can you hear me singing?”

Can’t make it out, but sounds like an Indian name
