This week, we have a story sent in by one of our fans on Twitter. The story took place in October of 2021 at Edinburgh Manor. A quick back story on Edinburgh Manor. The property started out as a poor farm, in the 1850’s. In exchange for working on the farm, people were provided food and shelter. With this one in particular most of the workers died on the property. Then in 1911, it officially became Edinburgh Manor for the insane, elderly, and disabled. It eventually closed in 2010. It is said hundreds of people died on the property during these years and is rumored to be one of the most haunted locations in the midwest. Now that we’ve given a little background let’s take a look at the story.
I had been to Edinburgh Manor once already by the time this happened, but it’s definitely purportedly haunted. When this happened, I had just finished walking around on my own during a tour and just went up to the front of the building and was small talking with the guide and we realized we had a lot in common. She invited me to do the last round with her, to make sure no one was left in the building. We had cleared the lower and main level already and started up to the second floor. We were just messing around and joking and I noticed my camera started acting funny. We had gotten to the top of the stairs, turned left and we’re kind of poking fun at the building and I said, “with how purportedly haunted this place is, I’m astonished I haven’t gotten any activity”. Not 10 seconds later we were walking down the hallway and this 3” thick solid wood utility door (hinges on one side and latched on the other) came off the hinges and flew straight at us and hit both me, the guide and her dog pretty hard – she got a bad bruise from it and it broke a mirror. I’ve been to my fair share of haunted locations, but I’ve never seen anything remotely close to what happened here.
Thanks to our Twitter follower that sent in this story. I think a big door is one of the larger objects I’ve heard someone say they had thrown at them. She sent a few photos of the door and it’s one of those old judge wooden types. This was definitely an interesting story!
