Data: 1 Sound Anomaly
first entering the Garden Center, the doorbell rang for an extended period of time (about 30 seconds) while simultaneously
the elevator opened, shut, went up, opened and came back down. This was repeated 2 times while the kitchen phone
was ringing and no one on the other end. Upon asking the Garden Center personnel
if this was a regular happening or if the elevators or doorbell were on some kind of timer, we were informed that they
were not. There is no explanation for the elevator, phone and doorbell to all malfunction at the same time
upon entering. We have no explanation for this event but we thought it was really fascinating. We would also like
to think the spirits were saying "Hello!"
Comments: Just before starting our first sweep of the mansion, Teri's recorder gets a
snap in it as if someone is snapping their fingers in tempo. **Snap Sound Anomaly Included**
No other recorders picked it up, and at least two others were running at the time. This
Darren Dedo noted the monitor for the vcr was showing static and just then a large orb whizzed by. A member's radio went off spontaneously. The PITT cameras wouldnt stay on and had to be repeatedly
restarted. Equipment failure was experienced when we first started to set up.
Temp: 77; butlers pantry temp 75
EMF: EMF of 9 due to appliances
EMF: No EMF except electrical
Data: No EVP
EMF: No EMF
Data: 2 EVP's
Comments / Psychic Impressions:
Teri didn't know one of the side rooms in the basement contained a Mikvah, used by the Jewish women for cleansing and
ritual purification ceremony. The Mikvah is covered up and piled with boxes so
it is not longer visible. When Teri entered she said she felt as though the room
had been used as a 'washroom'. She also felt that the classroom had been a laundry.
Impressions were sustantiated by history received from Historical Society. In this area Darren Dedo possibly captured some video anomalies and we got
an EVP at the same time **man groan EVP**
While doing a sweep of the basement, Darren Dedo alerted us to an alarm going off upstairs.
Members went up to the main hallway where a temperature meter was beeping as though the alarm had been set.
As we are talking, we received an EVP of a womans voice. **EVP help whisper & scratchy tunnel voice** Both
recorders they were wearing picked this up and are included below. Back in the basement several members and guests
captured orbs in the same corner. Cameraman Rob noted cool air rushing up the stairs, felt it on the back of his neck.
Area: Third floor servants quarters
Time: 1:50 am
Temp: 75-77 and 79 on the walls
EMF: No EMF
EMF: Very strange high EMF in the library centering on a potted plant on a table. A nearby electrical outlet did not register on the Profi, yet the plant on the table registered high EMF. The table was wooden with a glass top. No
explanation for the EMF. Negative photos.
Area: Master bedroom
(now conference room)
EMF: No EMF
Comments: Contamination from mirrors and two walls of windows. The yellow marble master bathroom which is no longer in use was extraordinary. There was a bathtub, a separate glass front shower with 4 shower heads, and a sauna
where the person sat in a box with their head sticking out. Inside the box were
huge heat bulbs. In 1921, this bathroom must have been state of the art.
Area: Upstairs hallway elevator area (may have been sitting room)
Time: 2:15 to 2:50
EMF: No EMF
Psychic Impressions: The elevator alcove drew us for quite sometime and a sit
down was performed there in hopes it would come up and open by itself again. Teri
had an impression of children playing up on the second floor. The FOX 23 Camera (large
TV Camera) experienced battery drainage and lost power. Rob (camera man) said this was a very unusual thing for those big
camera batteries to do that. Someone saw a dark shadow next to Teri and this was captured on photo (included - see data
page). Two other members felt sick up there. Teri senses a male energy with an H name. This impression
was substantiated by history. Teri got pain in her lower left side and felt shaky and very hot. A short time later she felt heaviness in her chest.
**4 Positive Photos of black shadows & mists were captured in this area during a time of high activity.
This is when the FOX camera battery drained and psychic
impressions were received**
Time: 3:00 AM
Teri had an
impression that there was something to do with out of state as far as building the house materials being brought in from another
state. Specifically she felt it was palazzo tile. According to the history material
was shipped in from Italy. She felt the
man who built the house didnt stay long which is consistent with the history of the ownership. Historical Data substantiates impressions. She felt as though the
second family had young children which was also verified by history as well as people at the Garden Center and Tulsa Historical
Society. She believed there had been four owners but history only documents three. Teri had the impression
someone bought the house but never lived in it and this was substantiated by history. Mr. W.G. Skelley bought the
property in 1950 then gave it to the city in 1954. Could
this be the 4th person Teri was feeling?
She felt something
was significant about the driveway on the south side of the house. (according
to history, the first owners and his brother ran out of money and had to build the brick driveway themselves.) History
was able to substantiate this impression.
spread out through the large mansion and conducted sit downs in seperate areas of the house. Of the places, a few
members did their sit down in the Library. As we sat in the dark for a while, all of the sudden the 6 people witnessed
papers in mid air which slammed heavily onto the floor at our feet. These papers did not "float" or "flutter" to the
ground, instead it was something of force that pushed them down. The six team members were sitting down at
the time and all 6 witnesses did not see WHERE the papers came from. Upon viewing our photos we noticed that the papers
were in the Northeast corner of the room laying on some books however, no one was in that corner of the room when this phenomena
occured. The papers were advertising the Farmers Market on Cherry Street. Although that does not seem pertinent
to the history of the Garden center, we are actively investigating this area due to several reports from business
owners and homes alike about "activity" in farmers market area. This area is Cherry Street (15th Street) that
use to be Tulsa's red light district. We have coined this location "AREA 15" and P.I.T.T. members are actively researching
and investigating this area.
present spent several hours trying to come up with a logical and probable explanation for the flyer incident and have come
up empty handed. Of course, no cameras were present in the room, however the incident was captured on audio tape and
a clip is included so you can hear the reactions from the members as well as hear how fast and hard those papers
hit the ground. (Clip coming soon!) There is no explanation for this and upon measuring, this flyers had to travel
9 feet to land at our feet - isn't it strange how the 6 witnesses didn't see them until they were directly in front
of us?? Those papers had to be traveling at a high rate of speed. Several re-creations were attempted but
failed. P.I.T.T. members believe this to be true actual paranormal phenomena we experienced.
FINAL OVERVIEW: The
Garden Center mansion felt very active all night. Compelling photos were taken
but no EMF readings were obtained except one particular area. Video evidence is shown on FOX 23 news
10/30/03 at 9:00pm. Two possible Class B EVPs.
This site certainly warrants a follow-up investigation and the teams have been invited back for more investigations. More
information will be posted at next investigation after the fist of the year.
