Friends and I do investigations of haunted locations. We were here a year ago. It has become a darker place than even a year ago. There was a lot of activity the entire time we were there. It's a bit intimidating with all the history...More

We were pretty excited to come tour the Edinburgh Manor, until we showed up and there was a line out the door like waiting for a roller coaster. Let me tell you, ghost hunting does not work with huge groups of rude inconsiderate people who...More

A very interesting historic location that is quite off the beaten path but a magnet for ghost hunters across the country. Even in the August heat, the interior was tolerable. A lot of history and we had a great time there.

The guide was very knowledgeable. Very friendly, nice, pleasant. This had a mixture of history and suspense and unexplainable happenings. I would love to go back.

This is a very interesting place. Isolated, deserted and just scared looking to drive past it. Sits out on the country with nothing around it. You can schedule overnight stats within the facility. There are numerous reports of paranormal activity by guests. We did not...More

This place is for people that love paranormal activity. This is not for people that scare easily. You will encounter strange things happening and noises that you can't explain. Bring bright flashlights and extra batteries, a camcorder, and a camera. If you have a voice...More

This was one of the major stops on our historical road trip across the Midwest. We learned about the location through an episode of Ghost Adventures and we were not disappointed. It is as if time has stopped at the manner, the hour and a...More

We went to an event here. It was everything I expected. Ghost Crier was the host. They did a nice presentation on the history and the tools etc that would be used during the hunt. We had several experiences of spirits. We were able to...More

The old county home for indigent and mentally challenged has secrets and (departed) residents which will make you want to stay close to the group! Guided tour is fun and entertaining, and many of our group experienced "oddities" that seemed to defy explanation. There is...More
