Hillview Manor, one of our favorite places to investigate. Candy our host was so incredibly gracious and we truly feel we have made a wonderful friend. Hillview Manor opened in 1926 as a home for the poor and included a womens and mens wing and a hospital. It included a section for the employees, a cemetery, and a bomb shelter. In 1976 a skilled nursing wing was added making the building 63,000 square feet. Hillview Manor closed it's doors in 2004 due to financial reasons.
We had many personal experiences during our investigation. Mike heard strange sounds he could not explain during set-up on the 3rd floor. While on the 2nd floor investigation Jerry experienced the feeling of being followed. He stated this started at a certain point on the 2nd floor and stopped after moving into another area. This happened multiple times to Jerry in the same area. The entire team at various times witnessed the red light of a night vision camera stabilized on a tripod float and move in criss cross and circular movements. The tripod was only set-up to hold the camera 2-feet off of the floor, yet the light was witnessed to go as high as the ceiling. The movements were so extreme that it could not be mistaken as a trick of the eye. The team tried to debunk it, and could find no explanation. It almost appeared as if someone was picking up the camera and looking at it. The interesting thing is when we reviewed the footage being filmed from the camera no strange movement was noted. Nancy and Janet both heard a deep sigh behind them. Gina and Janet witnessed a shadow figure peek from behind the nurses station on 1-north. Nancy reported the feeling of being touched on her hand. Strange shadow movements were witnessed by Nancy, Janet and Gina from behind the nurses station on 1-north. We were able to get various EVPs. Janet experienced a knock above her head in what is known as the "creepy hallway". While in the old boiler room Nancy, Janet and Gina experienced a loud bang on one of the empty oil tanks in the room. Nancy was walking around and after she stopped walking footsteps continued to come up behind her. We are definately planning on returning to Hillview.....this was one of our most interesting and active locations to date. Multiple EVP's were obtained, and you can listen to them at the bottom of the page.
