The Scoville Hotel
The Scoville Hotel is a three story building that was originally built for Dabney H. Scoville in 1905. The Hotel is located on Mitchell Street in an area known as “hotel row”. The Scoville operated as a hotel until 2001. Since then, it has been used for film projects such as the Rolling Stones video “Rain Fall Down” and various movies. The Walking Dead has filmed scenes just outside the Hotel doors.
On this particular day SIPR was hosting another team at the Scoville.
Two SIPR members were seated in the lobby area awaiting the arrival of the other team.
The hotel was dark as there was no electricity in the building.
The front door began to open and close on command.
One SIPR member filmed the phenomenon on her cell phone.
It is important to note that the front door has no door handle. To close the heavy door, we would need to insert the key into the deadbolt lock and pull. There was no
one on the sidewalk outside and the vibration of three large firetrucks
earlier did not cause the door to swing open or closed.
Southside Theatre Guild
As SIPR investigated the Southside Theatre Guild, four digital voice recorders were in use. Only two of them picked up this Class "A" EVP.
It is important to note that there were no children present during the investigation. This EVP was captured at 1:45 am.
As the team was conducting an EVP session in the genealogy section, a team member says: “Can you make a noise for us?”
*There is an extremely faint whispering voice followed by a “ding” noise and then team members laugh.
One team member said
A Library Employee said: “That’s the best you can do?”
*A very faint whispering female voice answers “no”* A team member asks:
“Can you do this?” then she tapped on the table 3 times.
*A knocking sound can be heard* This sound was not made by anyone present at the time.
Team members respond by saying “Thank you”.
The Wren's Nest
As a team member is sharing a story during SIPR's Ghost Hunting 101 and Investigation at the Wren's Nest about eating a Carolina Reaper pepper, a female voice that cannot be attributed to anyone else present can be heard saying "she was fine".
