About Us

My photo
Metamora, Indiana, United States
Whitewater Valley Paranormal Society is a group of like-minded people who have had experiences with the paranormal, or who have an interest in making sense of some phenomena that seem to be unexplainable. We began the society in September 2011, which is an off-shoot of the Southeast Indiana Paranormal Society, to begin investigating some paranormal activity that has been reported over the years in the historical canal town of Metamora, Indiana. We will be investingating other areas in and around the Whitewater Valley area. Many of our investigations are local to the Whitewater River Valley area, however, there are some that are a result of some of our travels. We welcome stories and photos from others in the area who would like to share their experiences

  • Monday, September 12, 2011 at 8:30 pm:  Private group investigation of Historic Metamora, Indiana (See photo section)

Update on Historic Metamora Investigation: We had thirteen people show up for this investigation (interesting number that was unplanned.)  The investigation was done during a full moon, which is a time when spirit activity is hightened.  We investigated areas where there have been stories of hauntings, and also areas where things have been sensed previously by some of our members.  There were several incidences where our camera and digital equipment simply stopped working, especially near the canal and in front of Metamora's only three-story building.  We got some truly remarkable photos of moving orbs and many of us could sense that there were many spirits among us.  We got over sixty different photos of spiritual anomalies!

  • Friday, September 30, 2011 at 6:30 pm:  Private group investigation of Old VanCamp House and Indian Encampment (See photo section)

Update on Old VanCamp House Investigation:  We had a really interesting investigation of this house.  We even caught a Native American spirit dancing on a video tape.  (This video should be posted on YouTube in the near future, as well as on this site and our facebook page.) 
It is interesting to note, that on this investigation, we had several unexpected people show up, which again gave us a number of thirteen people for the investigation.  We got a lot of anomalies on digital camera, and a lot of energy spikes with EMF.  Just before we left, I thought I heard one of our members say, "Who's here?".  So I questioned them and said, "What do you mean who's here?"  They all looked at me like I was crazy.  I said, "Didn't one of you guys say 'Who's here?'", to which they all said, "No."  I distictly heard a man's voice ask, "Who's here?" It is even more interesting to note that just before that, I had gone outside alone and got a lot of photos of moving orbs going from the upstairs window, then down to the lower level.  I then got a photo of a huge orb over top of all of our cars in the driveway........"Things that make you say........hmmmmmmmmm." ~ D.

  • Wednesday, October 12, 2011 at 7:30 pm: Private group investigation of the Old Christian Church Building (Meeting House Antiques), and the Mount Holland House (Luna's Garden/Metamora Gem Mine)

Update on Old Christian Church and Mount Holland House Investigation:  On this investigation we took two "Ghost Box" tools in an attempt to get the spirits to communicate with us, and wow, did they ever communicate!  We had the spirit of what we believe was a Civil War soldier who came through.  We asked if there were any Civil War soldiers here, as just the week prior there had been a Civil War reinactment held in Metamora.  The soldier told us about a tent, marching, about a brown pony and also about suffering.  This happened as we were walking up Lover's Lane.  We also had spirits communicate with us at the Mount Holland House.  We know that one was a man and one was a little girl.  When one of our members began saying "hello" in several differnt languages (due to the fact that many immigrants worked on the canal and the railroad, and stayed in Metamora), we had an interesting communication where we were told, "Russian," which was one language we did not know how to say "hello" in.  We also asked the little girl to communicate with us, and asked her tell us about herself.  She told us she was "seven" years old.   We got a lot of great photo anomalies also.

Update on Metamora, Indiana Ghost Walk Tours:  Both of our ghost walks through historic Metamora were a huge success.  We had people who were quite surprised that this quaint little town has such a rich and interesting history.  Who knew that this is where the family that created Van Camp's pork and beans originated?  We knew.  Even more facinating to many of those in the groups was how many photos they actually got that had some sort of paranormal anomalies in them!  Below are a few of the photos we have had submitted from the walks.

October 28, 2011:  In front of the old Faulker-Pierce Drug
Store (Currently Grannie's Cookie Jars & Ice Cream Parlor)
October 28, 2011: The old Martindale Hotel building - We were asked
to tell an old friend named Walter "hello" from his friend Sally.
She said she knew he would still be there.  This is what we got.
October 28, 2011:  The old Martindale Hotel building.  Is Ellen Tyner, daughter of Eziekiel
Tyner (Businessman who built this building in 1839) still here in the town she loved?  According
to a former owner of the building she is.  The former owner has also since passed.  Many who knew
her believe that she is still here also....and let's not forget Sally's friend Walter.  This building is said
to be the oldest and most haunted building in Metamora, Indiana.
October 29, 2011:  Orbs in front of the old Van Camp Drug Store
(Currently Annes) and Allison General Store (Currently Old Crows II).

October 29, 2011:  Huge orbs by the pizza place.  They seem to be interested
and following our tour.  We were told by a psychic that there is a man spirit
who likes what we are doing and totally enjoys the stories about his town.

October 29, 2011: Lots of orbs at the old Dr. Millard F. Cupp House tonight.
