Finally—Hawkinsville State Hospital
Tomorrow Archer Paranormal Investigations, API, travels to Hawkinsville, Georgia to investigate the Old Hawkinsville State Hospital, also known as Taylor Memorial Hospital (http://www.theoldhawkinsvillehospital.com/). This marks my first public investigation, where people have paid to participate in an investigation. In addition to the API Gals, we will be investigating with some of our former clients and friends. I am beyond excited!
I first learned of the OHSH from an episode of Ghost Stalkers (2014), Season 1, Episode 3, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4193834/?ref_=ttep_ep3. John Tenney and Chad Lindberg collected some extremely compelling evidence. Therefore, my expectations are high. Actually, the mere opportunity for investigating in an incredibly old and defunct hospital meets that high expectation. I’m not sure what I will do if we collect any evidence. A few choice phrases come to mind, but, hey, this is a PG-13 blog.
Seekers of Spirits (SOS) Ghost Hunters, http://www.sosghosthunters.com/, have exclusive permission from the owners to conduct tours and hold investigations. This paranormal group is working to preserve the hospital, as well as, the incredible and sometimes tragic history of the hospital. I respect this group and look forward to meeting them. In addition, I applaud their strict enforcement against Ouija Boards, séances, and rituals. Personally, I am against the use of such items. Moreover, I find that most people who use these items often abuse them.
I am off to pack, charge batteries, and collect items that I usually don’t bring on investigations (i.e., lawn chairs, surplus extension cords, and snacks).
Look for an update next week. I will be posting pictures and more.
