|A toy left over from Pennhurst State School|
Friday, October 21, 2016
With the ending of the summerlike weather, Pennhurst took on a chilly wind. The temperatures dropped and the leaves scattered. Along with the change, an eerie feeling crept into the Mayflower Hall building. (aka Ghost Hunt)
During the evening, I was standing in Mayflower’s foyer, talking to entering groups. In mid-sentence, a breath of air rustled the back of my hair. It was as if someone was standing behind me and blew into my neck. Thinking it was a co-worker messing with me, I turned sharply around, only to be staring into the empty hallway. Unnerved, I continued onward. However, that was not the end of it. Several times throughout the evening, my head was either stroked by an unseen hand or my hair was tugged.
But I was not the only target of this mischievous spirit. A co-worker reported he had been tapped on the head. Another woman on 2nd floor reported a similar experience.
Other customers claimed to see moving orbs with the naked eye. Some boasted of either being touched or hearing voices close to their ears.
All in all- it was a great night for ghost hunting.
Pennhurst Asylum is located in Spring City, Pennsylvania.
