History

Favorite Ghost Hunting adventure at the Stanley

The Elstun's Ghost Hunt healing favorite: The Stanley Hotel

One of the best Paranormal experiences was our midnight ghost Adventure at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.  I was still semi-crippled with my ACL knee injury and hobbling but our group of other ghost finders were considerate and I made it through.   In fact there is a healing agent of some kind in the soil that the Stanley sits on.  That's why it was built in the first place.  I was so much better after this experience I was able to go horseback riding the next day.

The Elstun's Ghost Hunting Adventures- Riverside Cemetery

The Elstun's Ghost Hunt favorite:

 Dave and I like to get down and dirty! We ghost hunt as a hobby.  We stroll through cemeteries, enjoy root cellars and abandoned hotels.  We love haunted houses but more than anything we love finding portals to other dimensions.  

The most activity we have ever experienced was backstage at the Birdcage Theatre in Tombstone Arizona.  It brought me to tears, literally.  Stay tuned, that story will come.

Denver has it's own active portal with as much energy as the Birdcage at the historic Riverside Cemetery just north of the city.

Jumps and Haunted Bumbs at the Mackay Mansion

Johnny Depp sees dead people -- here, at the Mackay Mansion. Built in 1860, the Italianate-style mansion was once the home of one of Virginia City’s “silver kings” who made his fortune on the Comstock Lode -- the first major discovery of silver ore in the US. Wander through the restored rooms of John Mackay’s old home -- now a museum -- and you may not find yourself alone. When Johnny Depp stayed at the mansion while filming Dead Man, a little girl dressed in all-white paid him a visit.

My favorite Macabre Art- Les Saltimbanques by Gustave Dore'

Les Saltimbanques,1874 is both inspiring and perhaps relevant from one of my top favorite artist and illustrator Gustave Dore' (1832-1883). Study the detail and the pain upon their faces.  The art tells a story.

FYI: In an 1874 interview with Gustave Doré for Appleton’s Journal (in England), Doré made his own intentions for this painting clear to the interviewer.

[Interviewer:] Turning to that picture of ‘The Mountebanks,’ which had so struck me, I asked if the poor wounded child were going to die.

The original Dare Stone; Lets study

L.E Hammond, a Californian tourist, claimed in 1937 to have found a stone inscribed by Eleanor Dare. He took it to Emory University, Atlanta, where it was examined by Dr Haywood Jefferson Pearce, Jr., professor of American history. It stated on one side that Eleanor's husband and daughter were dead, and asked the finder to communicate this to her father:

“Ananias Dare & Virginia went hence vnto heaven 1591.”

On the other side it states:

 “Anye Englishman Shew John White Govr Via.
