Iron Island

#1 - Iron Island

Season 4 - Episode 14

A local preservation society took over this property in 2000, and discovered over 30 boxes of unclaimed human remains tucked away in the basement bathroom. Renovations unearthed remnants of the Episcopal church as well as light fixtures and stained glass that'd been hidden behind the walls and ceilings as if the original funeral director created a building within a building. Many women who work at what is now a museum complain of being followed around the building by someone who isn't there. One in particular believes this feeling has increased 100% since they received an altar from another century-old church. Temperature fluctuations from extreme cold to uncomfortable heat are found throughout the structure. Furniture and doors have been heard moving and the sounds of shuffling footsteps are common. The original funeral director even admitted that doors that he had closed and locked would be found open. Floral arrangements were found rearranged. And on a few occasions he had heard strange voices in the building when there was no one else around.

In the Great Room and dining room, people have seen an apparition outside the window looking in- on the second floor! In the attic, a visitor brought a teddy bear and was poked in the side as the bear was knocked out of his hands. Other visitors heard her crying "don't go" when they tried to leave the attic. The next night, TAPS heads to the Hanoverville Roadhouse, where a little boy's apparition has been seen with tears in his eyes.
