I always thought tall empty buildings were scary, especially schools and churches. They are made for MANY people and when MANY people aren’t in them you can almost HEAR the dip.
THE ENERGY OF VACUUM STRUCTURES
A few years ago when I visited my old elementary school – Masonville Elementary – just before it changed hands (it is now a Pentecostal church), I took one last look around me. While I had a guide it was just the two of us in a large building NOT designed for just a few people. It was weird.
It was the same feeling I had as a kid when there was activity in the church basement and I would walk upstairs to the empty auditorium. When silence has so much space to fill, it can be a little strange.
MAMMOTH CAVE BAPTIST CHURCH
But Mammoth Cave Baptist Church IS NOT a very large church. It is a small country church that is almost 200 years old and occupies space on the grounds of Mammoth Cave National Park. I thought I covered every inch of this park by now, but I would be wrong. I have never come across this old church.
Apparently I NEED to cross it. And I may need to take an EMF (electromagnetic field) detector before I go, in case there are any “disturbances” it can identify.
Why I hear about this just now is beyond me, but Mammoth Cave Baptist Church is deemed to be a HAUNTED Church.
SEARCHING FOR GHOSTS IN MAMMOTH CAVE BAPTIST CHURCH
Ghostbusters who use the name Whits Life for their YouTube channel have been investigating and right off the bat (about 1:45) a leaf on the stem of a rose that has been placed on a graffiti covered table starts to move. And my skin too; I felt him crawling all over me. Nine seconds later, the rose moved again.
I love that at 9:59 a real live bat joins the party. How could he have known how fitting he would be to these procedures. Frankly, I wouldn’t be too thrilled to share an enclosed space with a bat, but at least it’s not otherworldly like the ghost of Floyd Collins who seems to respond to the trio around 10:50.
THE FLOYD COLLINS STORY
If you don’t know the name, Floyd Collins – who is buried on the grounds of the Mammoth Cave Baptist Church – became trapped in the park’s sand cave in 1925. The story has spread throughout the country. An old movie with Kirk Douglas called Ace in the hole was based on the incident. Unfortunately, rescuers were unable to get to Collins in time, and he perished in the cave.
THE GHOST SOUNDS OF MAMMOTH CAVE BAPTIST CHURCH
The Kentucky Ghost Team recently conducted an investigation and the short video they recorded is quite powerful. I don’t hear what he says I’m supposed to hear. But I hear many other strange sounds.
We haven’t finished. Check out YET ANOTHER team’s findings from last year.
Ghosts, spirits, things that hustle at night (and day)… they don’t wait for Halloween. In fact, I’ve always thought you’ll meet them when you least expect it.
That’s what makes life fun.
Former Illinois Bordello haunted by two little girls featured in Netflix movie
This Victorian house with a rather dark past is for sale. Before the house was built in 1909, it was the site of a brothel that could once conceal a murder.
