Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.

The Shermin-Gilbert house exterior has yielded some minor activity. A shadow figure has been allegedly seen moving towards the backside of the building, but to date has not been captured on media. Some sessions using dowsing rods have been performed outside the location in an attempt to communicate with this possible apparition.
