On June 25th, 2011 I accompanied the Georgetown Paranormal Society on a residential investigation in Berry, Kentucky.
I have named it the Railroad House because of both its close proximity to the Railroad (...duh) plus its apparent historic ties to the railroad.
I would guess that the house was built around the turn of the century. It is definitely old. As if to illustrate the importance of the railroad, if was even built facing the railroad instead of a street.
The oral history of the house included a possible murder-suicide. I won't go into the gory details except to say that our findings via our communication sessions did not support the story. While we believe the deaths occurred (as they tend to do) and the cast of characters was fairly accurate, we think the story has gotten considerably darker over the years.
We recorded no real evidence. The family was home during the evening going about their usual business of being a family so all of our audio had to be thrown out as contaminated. Some knocks, creaks, and thumps were heard, but nothing out of the ordinary for an older house (especially an older house with a home theater system).The video revealed nothing other than documentation of our personal experiences. Our communication session seemed to provide some answers, but nothing that we have been able to verify.
Throughout the evening some mild cold spots were encountered and that "static charge" that most paranormal investigators know all-too-well was felt. Some inconsistent anomalous EM fields where recorded. In other words nothing was captured that would label the location as haunted.
Hopefully, we can revisit the location in the future to do a follow-up investigation with better control of the environment.
