Cheney Mansion Ghosts

Post  Nena on Mon Nov 08, 2010 9:18 pm

JERSEYVILLE — Despite a growing pile of photographic and audio evidence of the unexplained occurring at the Cheney Mansion, the investigators with Paranormal Researchers of Southern Illinois still are hesitant to jump on the "haunted house" bandwagon.

"We rule out everything else before we call anything evidence," investigator Brian Lavigne said. "We are not one of these groups that takes any little thing and run with it. We investigate houses; that is what we are there to do."

Over the last two years, the team has made approximately 20 visits to the regal Jerseyville structure, looking for something to prove that the house is, in fact, haunted.

"We do this by using only scientific fact, not hearsay evidence," the research group’s home website states. "It is our job as paranormal investigators to gather facts, and do all that we can to make sure that our clients feel safe and understand exactly what may be happening to them."

The Cheney Mansion, located at 601 N. State St. in Jerseyville, was constructed in 1827 by James Faulkner as "The Little Red House," the first frame structure built in Jersey County. The original four-room structure served as a tavern, stagecoach stop, bank and doctor’s office, as well as being the very building in which city founders chose the name "Jerseyville."

Ugh. I am so annoyed by ghost hunters who ONLY recognize "scientific" evidence. There is a whole spectrum of ways out there and I think limiting yourself to science is the same as a medium who limits themselves to the spiritual. The two can and need to work together.

Excuse me while I climb off my soapbox now..... bossy

Great article and link Nena....thanks!! happy

Yeah their "we're better than other ghost hunters" attitude kinda rubbed me the wrong way LOL. I can only imagine what they think of psychics! Wink But unfortunately that kind of attitude seems popular with ghost hunters, that's why I've never been interested in having anything to do with them. To be honest, I get more respect from the police department, a group considered to be pretty small minded, than I feel coming from so called open minded ghost hunters.

I like it when ghost hunters use psychics. I like the whole story.
