Chicago, IL (PressExposure) August 17, 2009 -- In cooperation with the Historic Scutt Mansion's Board of Directors and the Orland Park Historical Society, Edward Shanahan is honored to be trusted with his Paranormal Spirit Experience, Knowledge and individuals assisting him, to be allowed to enter the Joliet Scutt Mansion and the Senator Humphrey House and bring a limited amount of 'living' individuals along to experience and explore the location at night and attempt 'To Cross The Veil' between the living and the dead during the recreation of a Victorian Seance and to provide an entertaining paranormal experience.
The Scutt Mansion in Joliet IL, Since it was built in the 1800's, Two past owners have died at the mansion. At least two documented murders committed inside the mansion. Two children in the building next door found dead after a fire and one may be the little girl that at times makes it known that she is there.
Spirits tied to the rooms of Victorian Antiques from the furnished basement to the very top floor. A room lined with just dolls dating back to the 1800's looking at you as you enter the doll room. The Pipe Organ Dance Room. Orbs seen in total darkness without flash or lighting and what you feel from room to room, floor to floor and at times what individuals see and hear wandering the halls.
The Senator Humphrey House was a home to Mr. Humphrey, his many children and two wives. The house also was the home to the deaths of some and the wakes, as family members would be waked in the living room of the family home and among the living in the house.
From the upstairs children playroom to the living room and at times the basement, Spirits have been felt and strange things caught on camera in Senator's Humphrey House, including what many feel is at times is Mr. Humphrey. The Humphrey Family also has a very strong tie to the famous haunted Bachelor's Grove Cemetery. Even some of the Historians wonder out loud if the first Mrs. Humphrey may be the Madonna of Bachelor's Grove Cemetery?
