The Haunting of Madison Seminary (Collab with PSPR Paranormal) – Paranormal History

August 31, 2019 10 By William Hollis


hello my friends and welcome to another
episode of ghost stories in folklore tonight I’m going to tell you about a
very interesting location that once began as a small friend building
intended to provide the men and women in Lake County Ohio a facility for higher
learning and not building my friends is the Madison Seminary in Madison Ohio
since it was built in 1847 there have been renovations and
expansions several owners and many different names the building served as a
school a home for several widows and orphans a mental hospital and
rehabilitation center for women inmates as well as government offices the
Madison Seminary has a very rich in interesting history my friends and is
now known for being one of the most haunted locations in the Madison area it’s the haunted the memories of the
souls that have lived and worked at the building that seemed to linger and
interact with all the visitors that enter through the creaky doorways and
walked down the long hallways and that is what we will be focusing on in this
video of my friends those ghost stories in Foley there have been many paranormal
reports from this building from orbs to disembodied voices asking questions to
guests in saying their names mysterious knocking noises footsteps whispers areas
with strange unexplained the cold spots people waving from the upstairs windows
when the building is empty lights and water turning on by itself just all
those things you would expect from a very active haunted building my friends
some of the craziest paranormal experiences in the building are related
to EVPs and technical difficulties from flashlights turning on and off on
command to technology losing all functionality the paranormal teams that
have gone out to the Madison Seminary have experienced quite a bit of activity there seems to be several resident
entities throughout the complex and one of the most well known spirits that
haunt the Madison seminary goes by the name of Sarah it is believed that Sarah
is a young girl that still haunts a wound that has toys in it and is said to
communicate with people when they take the time to visit with her EVPs and
playing around with the flashlights have been noted and documented but she isn’t
the only one that stays in this room there is an older sphere at the new moon
and said to be that of an old man that protects this young little girl for some
reason and can often create some tension within the space if little Sarah is
disturb them too much now aside from Sarah there is said to be a ghost of a
young boy named Stephen now that has been reported throughout the building as
well the tail tied to this young boy goes along the lines of a boy whose
father died during the Civil War after his father’s death his mother went
to Madison seminary in order to have a roof over their heads for some reason or
another his spirit still haunts the building and will frequently make his
presence known there are also reports of a few female apparitions in the building
but no one knows for sure who these spirits can be yet but I have a couple
of theories my own of my friends one legend concerns a young girl who was
left behind and died here when the structure was a boarding school another
rumor is that there is the spirit of a female patient who was abused and
neglected here when it was the Apple Creek State Hospital while yet another
rumor is that both the young girl and the woman are two forms of the same
identified entity there is also the story of a
schoolteacher that mysteriously went missing around the same time a cement
basement that was being poured within the building to this day the case still
remains open however there are some speculations that her body is buried
beneath that cement down in the basement of Madison seminary could this be the
final resting place of the missing schoolteacher there are also reports of
the spirit of a man who haunts the same room in the basement and could be the
one who murdered the schoolteacher is he there protecting his secret another
story related to the Madison Seminary that could explain the female
apparitions is that of Elizabeth Stiles you see Elizabeth Stiles once served as
a spy for the Union Army during the Civil War
she was specially commissioned by Abraham Lincoln himself and she also
spent her final years at the building and is buried just an acre away from the
building is she returning back to the building on occasion to find out who is
lingering around in the hallways the stories coming out of Madison’s history
can go on and on with different spirits but I have one more to report to you
that is quite interesting and happened not that that very long ago
my friends and this was when the building served as their local
government offices you see back in 1991 there was a news writer for the Lake
County News Herald and he covered several Madison Township Trustee
meanings in the building he recalled after one meeting the trustees invited
the press to tour the second floor where their offices were they were gathered
into the clerk’s office but she was trying to demonstrate the wonders of a
new laser printer the township had recently purchased but she couldn’t get
this wonderful new miracle of modern technology to turn on she soon noticed
that it was unplugged and remarked well that is strange
I never unplugged this so she plugs it back in and punches the power of button
but nothing would light up the smoke the journalists exchanged a few snarky
glances thinking this was a typical government ineptitude but at that moment
one in the lead he started complaining about a sudden coldness and they all
seemed to feel oddly uncomfortable and started aging towards the door to get
out the journalists could not wait to get out of those offices and the
building itself in fact the reporter later commented that he was glad when
the trustees moved to location other reports over the years or
that of people describing that they have heard children playing inside sounds of
women in conversation in unexplained footsteps throughout the entire building
yet the building was empty for most several people have seen a spectral
woman in white flittering up the stairs to the third floor as a result no one
next to go up there on a third floor my friends it is far more likely to
experience something at any given time than anywhere else in the building it is
hard to determine at this point in time my friends who all these spirits are
that still reside at the Madison Seminary but paranormal investigators
and researchers are currently working on making that determination through their
investigations and I am sure my friends more information in claims will be
reported in the future if you liked this episode of ghost
