Warning: If you don't want to know what happened in this episode, don't read this photo recap!
The team gets ready to investigate Burn Brae Mansion in Glen Spey, NY. This beautiful home was built by the Mackenzie family in the 1900s for their daughter, Margaret Elkin. It's now a bed and breakfast- a HAUNTED bed and breakfast.
The original owners of the mansion were Charles and Margaret Elkin. Many of their children died young and their coachman attempted suicide on the property and later died. Any of these spirits could be behind the paranormal claims.
In an unusual turn of events, the client is actually a guest. Janice wants to get married at this Inn but her friends and family are too scared to stay there. Her mom is afraid something bad will happen to her daughter if she marries in such a eerie location so this is a serious matter.
Mike is the owner of the building. He's collected claims from residents and guests that include hearing footsteps, the apparition of a woman sitting on the stairs, and a moving cloud in the staircase. People also see a man, hear sounds of children playing and babies crying, doors slamming and people claim they're being touched.
This is the most active room on the property, says Mike. Male and female apparitions have been seen in this area. The outdoor stables-turned-motel-units boast claim of made beds being ruffled and a dark shadow figure lurking outside.
The experiences started right away. Jason and Steve hear someone walking upstairs and couldn't find the source. They separate, and Jason hears breathing once he is alone.
Close that closet door! "It's not just clowns. It's not just dolls. It's clown dolls," says Jason. That may be the creepiest room in the history of Ghost Hunters.
There is no caption to explain this. Let's just close up this closet and move on.
There's only one way to test the rumpled sheets claim: make the bed and come back later to see if it's rumpled. Oh wait, there are stitches and repairs in that quilt that make it look like someone sat on it. DEBUNKED.
Among the more interesting experiences of the night occurs when Tango uses the restroom. Someone clearly tries to open the door, though he is alone in the building. Evidence review picks up sounds of footsteps outside the bathroom door as well. Overall, a great investigation. Hopefully Janice's mom will see that there are no malicious spirits here so the wedding can go on!
The second investigation is the Gallaher Mansion, in historic Norwalk Ct. Built in 1932 by an engineer and his wife, who both passed away on the property. The most interesting claim here is of an apparition of a woman holding a baby. That's unusual. Oh, did we mention the mansion was built on the grounds of what was once a sanatorium?
Mike tells the team that the owners died in the master bedroom of the house. Now people see apparitions and hear noises on the property, shadow figures, footsteps and objects that move on their own! Workers have seen apparitions and refused to come back to work. Mike thinks the Gallaher's are mad at him for opening up their home to public events. He wants TAPS to identify the ghosts so he can understand what he's up against.
Sam brings Mr. Gallaher's will with her to try to get him to react to the fact that his dying wishes were disregarded.
Dave and Steve debunk the claim that doors open by themselves- air drafts can be powerful things!
Jason monitors the video feed of the mansion while no one is in it. It's good to watch for activity when there is no human contamination.
Though the house was relatively quiet for the investigation, Jason assures Mike that whatever presences are on the property are not malicious. They may be annoyed by the big parties, but they're not going to harm anyone.
