Bailey Ranch House Investigation, Sperry, OK. (Jan 30/31 2013)
The team was invited to investigate a home in Sperry, OK.
which was built in 1883 and is situated on the Bailey Ranch property just north
west of Sperry.
There were originally three houses similar to this built in
the area dated from 1860 to 1883. The house we investigated is the 1883 location it
is the only one of the three that is still standing. The house is built of native
stone, quarried from a local stream bed and evidence of the quarry still exist
The house was once a stage coach station, court house and finally a family home and is currently empty.
Many unusual events have been reported in the house by
family and friends.
Upon the teamís arrival, we were greeted by Bud Jr. he grew
up in the home. Bud gave the team a tour of the home, explaining every room how
it was used and any unusual events that happened in the room. We were accompanied
by Tom, Claudia (owners) and KJ (She was familiar with the house and events).
The house had no utilities; we were required to use our 80
watt 120 VAC gas generator to supply our DVR system and IR cameras. The rest of
our equipment is portable and battery operated. See our list of the teamís
In the early evening Tom ran some extension cables for
heaters, hot water container and lighting. It was very much appreciated as the
outside temperature dipped to 27 degrees and with several windows broken it
became very cold in several of the rooms. The heater gave us an area to warm
We brought our normal investigation equipment, including our new DVR with 6 HD cameras (with IR source for dark enviornments), RT-EVP and audio recorders, iGEN Night Vision Cameras, Full Spectrum and IR movie Cameras, FLIR, Frank's Box, etc.. Check out our equipment list
Adding to the mystery, the front stairs are painted in bright colors we have seen in New Orleans and Mardi Gras, suggesting to several of us that witchcraft might have been involved. Also the north and some of the east side lower windows are painted over for some unknown reason again suggesting that something either inside or outside did not want to be seen.
