The PPA Investigation at Parker House Tavern
Location: Pennsburg, PA - Montgomery County



Investigation Date and Duration:
August 6, 2010 7:00pm –1:30am


Location Status:
Four bedroom Cape Cod residence occupied by two adults, two children and one dog.




Reported Activity:
The clients have reported seeing a tall shadow figure on different occasions and appeared to have a head and torso but no arms and legs. The client get the sense it is a man but it looks like a dark cloud that you can not see through and has no facial features. The figure was observed leaning over the son's crib looking at their son and it disappeared quickly. On another occasion, the figure was seen in the daughters room and began to float towards the client then disappeared. The clients do not feel afraid when they see the figure but are concerned because it seems to be checking on their son. The clients have also seen flashes of light in the home and unexplained shadows out of the corner of their eyes. The clients have also reported hearing children talking softly when their kids are asleep and the feeling like they are being watched in the basement. The clients requested an investigation to get some validation that what they are seeing is real and to make sure their children are not going to be hurt.

The clients have reported hearing similar music in the master bedroom in the past coming from an unknown source.

Photographs:
No photos of evidential value were discovered.


EMF (Electro Magnetic Field):
Standard baseline readings were taken throughout the residence with expected spikes near electrical appliances. A slightly elevated reading was measured in the kitchen area between the refrigerator and sink area believed to be caused by the electrical appliances in the kitchen with the most significant amount coming from the refrigerator. The highest level was a 0.7mg baseline which is in normal limits for the conditions. Another elevated area was in the daughter's bedroom, again with a baseline of about a 0.6mg up to about three feet from the floor. A significantly higher level was measured around the alarm clock in the daughter's bedroom with spikes over 150mg. This is a normal range for some alarm clocks but a significantly high field to be exposed to that could cause some instances of weird feelings or seeing things.

During one experience that Lauren and Virginia had in the kitchen, Lauren observed an anomalous spike from 0.0mg rising at a steady rate to 0.9mg while Virginia reported psychically sensing a female energy in the room rushing towards them and jumped out of the way. Lauren reported feeling like she had something warm push through her body like a wave of water causing her to physically move in the direction Virginia stated the energy was moving in. Lauren then reported a burning feeling on her whole left side, feeling tingly throughout her body, having a racing heartbeat and her legs felt like jelly. The emf levels then dropped back to 0.0mg.




Investigator Feelings / Experiences:
Mark –
Nothing to report

Lauren – While standing in the kitchen with Virginia and Nicole, Lauren was holding a Mel-meter EMF gauge and was having conversation with a spirit believed to be named “Cynthia” as reported by Virginia who was receiving psychic impressions. At one point, Virginia stated the spirit was moving towards them very fast. Just as Virginia reported this, the Mel-meter started climbing from 0.0mg to 0.3mg at a steady pace. Virginia ran towards the door and later stated she was moving out of the way of “Cynthia” when Lauren felt something warm push through her body sideways and she walked over to where Virginia was. Lauren reported it was like she had to move with whatever was moving through her. Lauren stated she was then all tingly and her heart was racing and had “jelly legs”. After what Lauren believes may have been “Cynthia” moving through her, Lauren felt pain all down her side. This correlated with an earlier report from Virginia that the energy she felt was “Cynthia” was badly burned down one side of her body from a fire.

Nicole - Nothing to report

Jim - Nothing to report

Virginia (Psychic Medium) – Refer to Lauren's above experience.



Metaphysical Impressions:
Virginia psychically picked up on a young woman that had died from a fire and had been badly burned down one side of her body. Virginia feels that her name may have been “Cynthia”. Virginia felt that it was around late 1800's to early 1900's and that she may have worked for the local school. Virginia feels there may have been a fire at this school where she worked and died. Virginia also picked up on a male energy that she believed was a fireman. The fireman, she felt, was also from the late 1800's to early 1900's connected to the name Miller. Virginia could not get how the fireman died but believed that he could have helped with fire where the spirit of the young woman died and she followed him home. Virginia also picked up on a very young girl that was in the home, possibly burned as well on the ears, and this little girl, along with the other two spirits needed to be crossed.




Conclusion:
During the investigation on this date, investigators experienced one significant personal experience in the kitchen and our recorders were able to capture the anomalous sound of flute music from an unknown source. Some slightly elevated emf fields were located in various parts of the house which are known to enhance paranormal activity when haunting activity is present. Taking into account the clients credible claims of activity and Psychic Medium Virginia Centrillo's psychic impressions, The PPA feels that there may very well be paranormal activity occurring at this location. Not enough scientific evidence was gathered to definitively prove a haunting is taking place but based on the clients concerns and under Virginia's direction, a cleansing of the home was conducted and Virginia believes we were able to successfully cross over the spirits that were inhabiting this location. The clients have reported no further experiences since the investigation. The PPA will continue to monitor the location for any further activity.
