This was our Second Investigation of Rolling Hills Asylum in Batavia, NY. Originally known as the Genesee County Poor Farm, this old facility has served as a poor house, an insane asylum, and a retirement facility. It has appeared on numerous television shows including Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures and Paranormal Challenge, and is considered one of the most haunted locations in the U.S.
This investigation was completely different from our prior investigation two years prior. During our last visit we did not have many personal experiences and the location seemed quiet (until we reviewed our evidence which proved otherwise). This time the location felt totally alive with energy, and almost every investigator had a personal experience. During the tour after we first arrived we all heard a disembodied scream coming from one of the hallways, which seemed to be a portent of what was to come. Team members witnessed numerous shadows, heard disembodied voices, and some investigators were physically touched by unseen hands. All in all, this was a fantastic investigation and we can't wait to go back.
