Paranormal Road Trip!
Sunday, August 23rd - Tuesday, August 25th, 2020
Missouri State Penitentiary
We are off on another adventure!
Join Heidi Steffens and Tim Donahue on a adventure to two paranormally active locations! Tim and Heidi will kick off each night of investigating with a group investigation to invite in and connect with the spirits who are present.
We start on Sunday night at Edinburgh Manor in Monticello, IA. The land originally housed the County Poor Farm which housed the poor, incurably insane and disabled. Tenants were given shelter and food for their labor. They would farm agriculture and livestock. The poor farm was in operation from 1850-1910 and in that time there were over 150+ documented deaths on the property. In 1910, the poor farm closed down and was demolished. Edinburgh Manor was then constructed from 1910-1911 to house the incurably insane, the poor, and the elderly. Edinburgh Manor, also referred to as The Manor, was in operation until November 2010.
Our second overnight is at Missouri State Penitentiary. MSP opened in 1836 along the banks of the Missouri River in the state capital of Jefferson City. The prison housed inmates for 168 years and was the oldest continually operating prison west of the Mississippi until it was decommissioned in 2004. Because of the dangerous and well-known inmates, notable women, executions, escapes, as well as the famous prison riot of 1954, MSP was once named the “The bloodiest 47 acres in America”
