Hi Jim and Nancy! Well, i have investigated the school three times, twice with my group, once with JD from Paranormal Seekers of Iowa. Have not been dissapointed once! We have gotten direct responces from the spirit box, awesome KII spike responces to questions, the awesome "shave and a haircut" clip on your evidence page. I have been touched while there and also pushed repeated times in one investigation. Farrar was IPIS's first serious investigation when we got started as a group. I can't wait to get back in there again! Love the diehard investigations in the winter!

First off we all would like to thank Nancy for the opportunity to investigate her building, we had a great time and got some very good evidence. Our group is not a big believer in orbs however on video we got a full body apparition on static camera, later that evening one of the investigators actually first hand witnessed this apparition in a different part of the building. After describing what he witnessed we later found out from Nancy this is a resident spirit, the description that was given by the investigator was uncanny. Lots of evps were captured as well as many k2 hits to back up the evps. Our group has investigated over 200 different buildings and residences and this has to be one of the more active buildings we have been in. Very good place for the inexperienced ghost hunter to try his skills in. Highly recommended by our staff! Thanks again Nancy we will see u in april, july and sept!!!!

Kevin with Fly By Night Paranormal Investigations out of Omaha here. Three members of our team stayed the night on 11/11/11. We had a great time and we did acquire a fair amount of evidence. The first half of the night was relatively quiet, but after 3am things really started to pick up. One of the rooms (I’ll not say which to remove bias for future teams) literally brought one of our members to tears. After the investigation I explored the video evidence page on this site and saw that Paranormal Endeavors reported the exact same experience back in 2010. We also heard what sounded like one of the lockers slamming shut on the 2nd floor. When we tried to find the source of that noise, we captured a VERY loud noise that came from no more than 5 feet from Stephen. We captured that data on our HandyCam and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you soon. Our stationary IR cameras also caught some nice data. One of the cameras actually is moved shortly after Stephen and Shelly walk past it. Though it very well could be dust, we captured several shots of ‘orbs’ that seem to behave uncommonly. One comes out from behind the music stage, and another seems to come out of the music room and travel directly toward our camera about a foot off of the ground. Some others were seen near the front door steps. We’re currently working with our team to find out when we can come back to Farrar this Spring. It was a great time!

My group stayed a little over a week ago. Unfortunately, we had to cut our trip shorter than planned. We figured, being in December, it would be cold, but we had no idea it would be THAT cold!! We couldnt even hardly take any pictures because our fingers were so numb. We did get some activity in the stage room on the 3rd floor. But it wasnt a scary feeling. More like...somebody was in there doing their thing and not paying attention to us as we walked through. we did communicate (in the stage room) with a girl by the name of Shelly. We also got a couple EVP's. not sure what they meant though. We asked who was with us and got "73...think about it". When we asked about 2 minutes later, we got "70". And about 2 more minutes later, we asked if if anybody wanted to talk to us, and got "yes.". We cant figure out what 73 and 70 has to do with anything, but thats definately what the whispering sounds like. We definately plan to try again in the summer. It was just too darn cold....

Had an EPIC paranormal investigation at Haunting At Farrar. Whoever said third time's the charm was right. While we caught plenty of unexplained noises on the 3rd floor during our previous 2 visits, I never communicated with a spirit until last night. Was freaking startling, even mind-blowing, to interact with something beyond this realm. I'm very much looking forward to building off that when we make it back there again.

Visited the school a couple of weeks ago with my group. Getting some good audio, and some interesting video. I consider myself somewhat of a sensitive, however I never put much stock into it. I like to have evidence to back up my feelings. Anyway right after the tour with you I went up to the third floor along with another investigator to set up a video camera in the hallway directly in front of the breathing room. Suddenly I felt very anxious, hard to breathe, heavy feeling, just an overall bad feeling. I hurried up an set the camera up, because all I wanted to do at that point is leave the floor. Little did I know that some of the other investigators would see a partial apparition of a man in the doorway to the breathing room rushing them. Whomever that was put off a bad vibe.
