Historic Trenton Hotel and 89X; October 28, 2011

Background and ClaimsTrenton Grand Hotel_20111028_250_oldtrenton

Known as “TVs Grand Event and Banquet Center at Historic Trenton Hotel” this building was built in 1895. The building has held many purposes in its 116 years, a carriage stop, a hotel, a private residence and a restaurant.  In the 1970s the building had burned and was condemned until a doctor saved the day, he purchased it and restored it and then he put the basement in.

On Friday October 28 2011, MCGH teamed up with 89X (a local radio station). This wasn’t a normal investigation. The premise of the investigation was to follow James, a talent from 89X, and some listeners in their search of the paranormal.

Video Evidence Obtained During Paranormal Investigation

Below is a 3 part video that we put together for 89X! The video shows James’ investigation throughout the night, which includes some sessions with the Ovilus, a motion sensor turning on and off and also some k-II and flash light communication.

Investigators- JohnJasonCathy, , Chass, Teri, and Tom; 89x Team – James, Mark, Donnie, and Nichole

Audio Evidence Obtained During Paranormal Investigation

  “Bitch” EVP Class B: This EVP was taken in the vault at the very beginning of our EVP session (first round). John starts talking, the Ovilus tells him “quiet” and then a voice can be heard at about 7 seconds that says, “Bitch.”

  “Get out” EVP Class B: This EVP was recorded in the “Futon Room,” during the first investigation session (with Teri, Chass, Tom, Mark, Donny, Nicole). It occurs at about 4.5 seconds into the recording and appears to say, “Get out.

  “Weeee” EVP Class A: This EVP was recorded when we were all standing in the hallway watching the motion sensor. Chass is asking it if it can run real, real fast and a “weee” can be heard at 5.5 seconds in. Sounds like a kid, which we know were not around us (at least in the physical sense). We have looped it so it will play four times.

  “Rot” EVP Class C: This EVP was recorded during the first session in the vault. It occurs at about 2 seconds in. It is kind of quiet, but sounds like, “‘Rot.” What makes it interesting is that just seconds later, the Ovilus says “Rot,” which then James and John say in surprise.

“Seven” EVP Class B: This EVP was recorded when James, Jason, Cathy, one of the employees were outside. We were talking about the people setting up for the wedding and Jason something about them being up there since 11:30 setting up. At 4 seconds in, it sounds like “Seven,” which is totally misplaced in our conversation. We have looped it so it will play four times.
