Talking with historians in Hibbing, we were able to find out that the ground that was used to fill in and level the terrain was originally from the site of the old Rood Hospital which was the first hospital in what is today present day Hibbing. It was built in 1920 by the Oliver Mining Company when Hibbing relocated.
The team arrived at 9:00 PM to film the tour of the location for our website and set up.
The team split up into 2 groups: Mick, Don, and a staff member. (Team 1) | Adam, Glen, and another staff member. (Team 2)
Each team would seperate and investigation different locations. We were able to investigate the exterior buildings on the grounds as well as the maintenence shop. We also re-investigated the main museum.
Observations and Conclusions
While team 1 investigated the main museum, team 2 investigated the exterior buildings.
Team 1 Reports
While investigating the museum, Don had saw a shadow person dart behind the "9" bus which is the furthest bus to the left. It is the newest as well in the museum. What is interesting about this bus is that our original investigation, we had witnessed a similar shadow behind the same bus.
Below, Don made a mock up photo to show what he had witnessed.
A window on the scenic crusier's passenger side had also opened up on the team while the lights were turned off.
Team 2 Reports
In the Sunrise Building, the museum has a bus from Saudi Arabia. This was also used to transport female prisoners as well as a bus for Hollywood extras. Today, it is back in it's Saudi Arabia format. While sitting on the bus, the team was able to conduct a yes/no session with what we believe to be a spirit with the cell sensor EMF meter. This was at 10 PM.
Upon returning to the bus at midnight, we were not able to reproduce or find a natural reason for those EMF spikes.
In the "Montana" building, there are two buses stored. One is a Buffalo bus which is close to the one in the museum in appearance. While in this building, we were able to have a noise produced from inside the back of the bus when we asked if we could have a sign of a presence. These were two small taps on the glass and were able to be repeated by asking the question of "Can you make your presence known by making a sound?"
Glen had decided to open the bus and see what was making that sound. While he did this and entered the bus, Adam had stated that we would ask questions and it could answer us with taps. One tap for yes, two for no. Before he finished stating the rules of the "game," Glen had jumped and wanted to get out of the bus. He stated that he saw the bathroom door open. While we decided to leave the building and bus, the Cell Sensor EMF meter was steadily going off.
Upon returning to the site at midnight, the team found no source for the EMF spikes we had found earlier. The bathroom door was also latched and we were unable to request tapping sounds by unseen hands.
It should be noted that the "Montana" building is closest to the Hibbing Cemetery.
Upon rejoining the teams in the main museum building around 1 AM, we had the three staff members hold the EMF meters that we had present and ask questions as we originally did on the Saudi Arabia bus. We recorded these Q&A sessions on our cameras. Interesting enough, we were able to hold this Q&A session right next to our IR strobe position. It gives further creedence to the theory that the IR strobe makes them curious.
We were unable to find any types of EVP audio from this investigation. We believe that we had found one but it turned out to be something natural. We have a video of that "misinterpretation" of evidence to show how you can't believe everything at first glance.
A BIG THANK YOU
A big thank you goes out to the staff of the museum for allowing us back into the museum and staying with us for that night. We want any visitors who wish to tour the museum know that the museum opens again around May 11, 2009 so please check it out! It is very reasonable for a tour of one of the best historical sites in Hibbing! Please visit the website at http://greyhoundbusmuseum.org
A thank you to the Hibbing Police Department for being aware of us being there and also stopping to make sure things were okay. Normally, we give them advanced noticed earlier that day but since it was a weekend, there was not anyone in the office. We had an officier drive by on a patrol and check on the museum. He was doing his job and we are glad that he was!
Don takes you back to our first investigation at the museum in January 2009.
