The story surrounding this building is that the architect of the hall was a perfectionist and insisted that each room should receive at least six minutes of direct sunlight This could have contributed to what is a complicated floor plan. It is shaped like a bio-hazard sign from an aerial view. The crux of the story is the architect found one of the room’s sunlight quota a little off so killed himself
in the building. According to the examiner, students have witnessed strange happenings and report seeing an apparition of a male ghost. Small ghostly children have been seen playing on some floors. Sinks turn on and off and some hear scratching on the walls.

This village/museum sits on 90 acres just North of Phoenix, Arizona and contains approximately 30 buildings on the site. It was officially opened in 1969 and gives the visitor the opportunity to step back in time from 1863-1912. These buildings were rescued from decay and destruction and placed at the museum in an effort to show how life was during that time in our history.
Just a few of the original buildings include the Ashurst Cabin, boyhood home of Arizona’s first Senator, Henry Fountain Ashurst. The original Phoenix Bakery from 1881 is here, also. The Opera House started out as a general store in 1876, and was turned into a theater in 1882, after it was sold. The Flying V Cabin is also located here. It was built circa 1880 and even has notched gun ports for protection against Indian attacks. It was raided during the July 17, 1882 Battle of Big Dry Wash, the last Apache war in the area. In moving these buildings to the museum area, it appears that the spirits have moved with them.
[pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”]There have been several paranormal groups to investigate this location, with each of them reporting strange noises, happenings and recorded EVP’s.[/pullquote] Even though the caretaker of the village swears that he doesn’t believe in ghosts, he has also heard and experienced some strange things that he just cannot explain.
The museum also offers Ghost Tours, with “ghouls” as your guides. They take you to each of the buildings in an effort for you to have your very own unique experience with their resident spirits.
If you are ever in Arizona and want to step back in time to see what a pioneer’s life was like during the day, and what spirits still reside here at night, this is the place for you.

The Chupacabra…what is it? It has been in the news, again, recently. It is thought to originate in Puerto Rico where the name Chupacabra literally translates to “Goat Sucker”. Many Central and South American Countries have various legends of the Chupacabra, but it became famous in South West Texas with reports of a hairless canine like creature with large jaws and bright blue eyes. Ranchers have discovered, mostly chickens, their livestock dead and drained of blood. Is it the work of the Chupacabra? Although it appears not to be a threat to humans, Ranchers have loaded guns and are waiting for the Chupacabra to attack their livestock. Not only is it not a direct threat to humans, but it is very shy and hides from humans.
The Thunderbird, a Native American legend most notably in Arizona. The next time you are in Southern California and South Western Arizona…you will notice large Vultures circling. Are they Condors? Or are they Pterosaurs? I think a lot of people witness these creatures and subconsciously dismiss them as Turkey Vultures not realizing they are actually looking at a Pterosaurs. Pterosaurs are very large, with wingspans over 20ft+. Some have been witnessed to be as large as a Cessna airplane. Native American tribes hold the Thunderbird in high regard, with an almost god like status…they are almost always on top of totem poles. Is the Thunderbird a Pterosaurs? I think it is highly likely in the Cryptid field.

|We are Glendale Paranormal Chasers, chasing the unidentified and YET seeking the truth. PROVING that the ”Unliving” is still actually living beyond a shadow ,or shadow person of a doubt. We like the Mist that mystifies us.|
|C.S.P.I. was founded by members of a paranormal group who wanted to get back to our basics. Seeking the truth, and helping those in need. We wanted to get back to the reasons we became paranormal investigators. We wanted to help people who have very few places to turn to. We also wanted to try and find answers to one of the oldest questions for many generations. Can the dead communicate with the living? You might think with all the paranormal TV out there it would be easy to get help, but many people still aren’t comfortable with the idea of seeking help for what may or may not be paranormal phenomenon. That is where groups like ours come in. We volunteer our time and resources to try to determine what the cause of these strange happenings may be. It could be a combination of man made or natural occurrences that are coming together in just the right combination, or something that is beyond what is considered “normal.” Our hope is that through the sharing of information and technology in this field we can all find the answers that we all seek. CSPI is Dedicated to the truth…and compassionate for those seeking help…living and dead.|
