Old American Woolen Mill
Vassalboro, ME - 6/24/2011
We asked to investigate this 200+ year old mill and were graciously welcomed by the buildings owner. Dan, Andy, Derek, Guy, Matt, and Angela were present on this investigation. We were given a tour of the facility and a brief history. The building was over 98,000 square feet. We initially set up our camera equipment on the second floor with command and power on the first. We split up into three teams of two and began our investigation with the help of one of the tenants of the building and his friends, of which they were an immense resource.
Over the course of the night many EVP recordings were done, as well as video taken with hand held cameras and digital cameras for recording evidence. In the building there was one room which seemed to have significant activity for one of our members and a picture taken at that time is shown below.
The other piece of evidence we have is hits on the flashlight while talking in a workroom in the far end of the first hall. The light responded to many questions that Dan and Andy asked and afterwards it was noticed that there were World War 2 papers in the room given to a specific person. This may have significance, but requires further review.
We continued our work over the course of the night and spent time debunking an odd sight we saw on one of the cameras, but were successful in recreating the phenomena we saw. There were some minor equipment malfunctions and it seems there were some things recorded on EVP.
At this time, we cannot say that the mill is haunted or not, because of a need to investigate further. We feel the evidence we have is inconclusive.
