We .gratefully acknowledge support or this investigation from the Institut fur Grenzgebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene, Freiburg, Germany. We also appreciate the cooperation of the owner of McRaven House, Leland French. Thanks are also due to Ms. Janis Raley, and Dr. Rene Horath, University of California, Pennsylvania.

ABSTRACT: After interviewing witnesses, Nichols and Roll spent 3 days at McRaven House, Vicksburg, Mississippi, and 2 visits totaling 4 days (2 days/visit) at the Aponasewicz house, California, Pennsylvania. Instrumental recordings were taken at sites where witnesses had experienced haunting-type phenomena. Control recordings were taken in other parts of the houses and grounds. The equipment and method used were similar to those used in previous investigations by the authors.

At McRwen House, Roll and Nichols found an elevated geomagnetic field (GMF), the epicenter of which appears to be located beneath the house itself and which decreases with distance in all directions from the house. The unusual magnetic properties of the site had also affected the bricks of which the house and surrounding structures were constructed. These bricks, made by slaves prior to the Civil War, appeared (because of their exceedingly red coloration) to contain significant amounts of ferrous salts. This property rendered the bricks particularly susceptible to magnetization from the apparent geomagnetic anomaly at the site. Individual bricks were found to possess significant magnetic properties, and the axis of these magnetic fields varied depending on the orientation of the individual bricks relative to the earth beneath the house.

Photographic tests conducted at the site produced numerous photographic anomalies, consisting of bubblelike translucent orbs that appeared on the digital photographs in copious numbers. …
