(MOBILE, Ala.) On the eve of Halloween, here's a question for you: Do you believe in ghosts? Many people do, especially a team of ghost hunters here in Mobile called Beyond Sight.
The group teamed up with Local 15 to explore a haunted landmark, the Richard's DAR house in downtown Mobile. The group claims the DAR house isn't the only place in Mobile known for it's spooky sightings.
Beyond Sight paranormal investigators say they've performed successful ghost hunts at the city museum in Fairhope, Fort Conde Village and Mobile's National Cemetery to name a few.
Local 15 decided to take a tour through Richard's DAR house and let you decide what to believe.
In 1860, Steamboat Captain Charles Richards and his wife Caroline built their dream home.
"They lived in the house and had 12 children," said Susan Tomlinson. She gives daily tours through the museum.
She says the former occupants visit often.
"I did have one of my friends that came in one morning. She came in, turned the alarm off and walked in and stood right in front of that mirror in the front parlor. And in the mirror she could see a man sitting in a chair. And she turned around to look and he was not there," said Tomlinson. "We've also had instances where we've heard sounds of children talking or singing "Happy Birthday."
Knowing this, Local 15 decided to call in a group of ghost hunters.
"I've always been interested in things that were beyond what we can perceive," said James Rosier, Beyond Sight Investigator.
Using electromagnetic detectors, recorders even a radio, the Beyond Sight team attempted to communicate with the dead.
We didn't hear anything at first, but when we played our recorders back later that night, we heard a distinct voice we couldn't explain.
And just last year our cameras visited the DAR house in hopes of a haunted encounter. We got one.
But this isn't the only place in Mobile believed to be haunted. Rosier says one of the most haunted places in the Port City is Barton Academy.
"Our best and favorite session was a ghost box session we did at the Blakely Battlefield in Spanish Fort. I asked the question how did you die. It said killed. I said who killed you and he said troops," said Rosier.
If you're still a skeptic, maybe an image Local 15 captured at Mobile's Oakleigh Mansion two years ago will change your mind.
if you look closely, you'll see a woman on the screen, rocking in a chair.
Only when we looked at the chair in person, no one was there.
