About The Event
Rock Island, Illinois early days was thought of as something of a frontier town-a little too rough and tumble for the "nicer things". But, in the turn of the 20th century we see a lot of different buildings and entities coming to the community that are definite signs of it being a little more "refined". And for decades it offered railroad workers, soldiers, and other men a place to stay. The YMCA was built in 1912 and opened in 1913 and was a sign of Rock Island's development as a community. The YMCA is also a landmark because of the odd blend of architectural styles. The YMCA closed in the 1970s, and later was used by U-Haul until the mid 1990s when Vinar Furniture became the owner. As a local landmark, the YMCA gets most of its recognition for its historical importance. However, the YMCA also gets its recognition for what lurks inside the YMCA under the pale moonlight. It is said that the YMCA is haunted by its past......
It is said that long ago, a little boy drowned while playing in the pool, and that John Dickerson committed murder while staying at the YMCA. It is also said that gangster John Patrick Looney, a politician who turned gangster did a lot of illegal business inside the building. Some of the claims from others include footsteps, doors opening and closing by themselves, people witnessing shadows, disembodied voices, electronic voice phenomena, and a video that seems to have captured a shadow anomaly. Also, people have claimed to smell sulfur as wells as women perfume.
June 11th, join us in investigating the claims and experiences at the haunted Rock Island YMCA! But we will not be alone in doing so! Your special guest investigators for the evening are none other than psychic medium and author Maria Verdeschi, Melody Knapp from the television show Ghost Finders, and parapsychologist Kristen Luman from A&E's television show Ghost Hunters and Syfy's Ghost Mine! Also, we will have local paranormal celebrity Madison Smith there as well! For all paranormal enthusiasts and seasoned paranormal investigators who are interested in bringing their own equipment......PLEASE DO!!! You will be split into groups with a group leader, and your group will investigate throughout the building and will have the opportunity to investigate with each paranormal celebrity.
