ELITE Paranormal of Kansas City
Kansas City, Kansas
ELITE Paranormal of Kansas City investigated the Grinter Place in Kansas City, Kansas in August of 2012. The Grinter Place is an antebellum home overlooking the historic Delaware crossing of the Kansas River. The home was built in 1857 and is the oldest in Wyandotte County, Kansas. The home was built by Moses and Annie Grinter who operated a ferry over the Kansas River. They also operated a trading post in the area from 1855 until 1860. Annie was Native American and a member of the Delaware Indian Tribe. The family were also farmers and grew many types of crops around the property.
Moses lived on the property until his death in 1878. Annie continued to live on the property until she passed away in 1905. The home was then occupied by their daughter Marta Grinter Kirby and her husband Henry. The home was then passed to their daughter who sold it in 1950. The home became a chicken restaurant until the mid 1960’s. It was acquired by the State of Kansas in 1971 and became a State Historic Site.
The team investigated the home for several hours. We attempted to interact with any spirits who may be at or near the location. We did not really notice any outward signs of paranormal activity while on the premises. We did hear some possible audible speech while we were investigating but it was not a frequent occurrence.
We worked with our friend Harvey Althaus for a short while outside of the home and tried to isolate any hot spots. We did notice that there were very high EMFs in the kitchen of the home. Much to our surprise, we did find quite a few EVPs from the location and some where quite clear.
We want to thank the Kansas State Historical Society for the opportunity to investigate the Grinter Place and always welcome the opportunity to support historic sites and preservation. We look forward to returning!
