Paul/Nicole: While on the initial walk-through of the parsonage, Nicole heard what sounded something like a growl noise in the kitchen area. Paul also reported hearing the same sound at that time.

Al/Jim/Stan: Heard the sound of footsteps on the second floor during the initial walk-through of the parsonage. No one was present on the second floor at that time. Jim also reported hearing the footsteps.





Conclusion:
During the investigation on this particular date, investigators had a few personal experiences during the investigation. Investigators were not able to document any activity by audio or video means. A few personal experiences were also noted by members of the Blue Mountain Paranormal Society along with at least one real time EVP documented during the investigation.

With a few personal experiences noted and at least one valid EVP, The PPA recommends further investigation at this location to identify any paranormal activity to determine if a haunting is taking place and to further inspect the experiences that were reported.
