“Points of Interest in Atchison, KS”
The Sallie House haunting has been in a class by itself simply by the conditions that seem to exist. There have been, full-bodied apparitions, and objects flying through the air. Items have moved been misplaced or lost only to reappear or show up later or at another location. Phantom furniture has been heard along with thumps, thuds, knocks, scratching in the walls and the sound of animals and human voices. Although some voices have been heard with the naked ear, there has been an amazing amount of EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) captured further depicting the voices of men, women and children. Many have experienced extreme smells and on occasion seen full-bodied apparitions. Lastly, and likely most famously, there has been physical harm to the occupants and investigators in the form of scratches, burns and cuts. Although the majority of these attacks have often been centered on Tony himself, there have been a few others who have also been the focus of the physical harassment. Investigations into this house continue, but was initially investigated by the television show Sightings back when Tony and Debra Pickman lived there with their newborn son. Numerous psychics have entered the picture in order to help us along the way and they include Barbara Conner and world renowned, Peter James who has worked on the haunting of the Queen Mary for many years. Paramount Pictures created a made-for-TV movie titled theHeartland Ghost, which depicted the story of Sallie and the Pickmans experiences. The Pickman’s experiences have been document on television since 1993 on a variety of TV series such as the Travel channel’s, Most haunted Town, KQ2 news out of St. Joseph, Mo, Unexplained Mysteries, and Channel 4 news out of Kansas City, KS, have all been involved in documenting this story since 1993. More recently our story was told by Discovery Channel’s, A Haunting, Biography Channel’s, My Ghost Story, then again with the Travel Channel. This time with the Ghost Adventurers. Some believe that what exists in the house is evil, some believe that the entities within the house are reaching out and in need of our help, some believe that Tony is doing it all himself (which doesn’t seem like a viable assessment when the activity continues without his presence). Some believe there is much more going on there than we can imagine, and yet others think its all been a hoax. A multitude of monitoring equipment has been utilized to help determine what is causing the strange occurrences in this small little house on the bluffs of the Missouri River. The equipment includes, but is in no way limited to digital and analog voice recorders, infrared and heat sensitive video cameras; electromagnetic meters etc . Many investigative groups have used dousing rods, crystals and pendulums, and some have tried to set up controlled ESP situations to experiment with more possibilities. Since the activity seems to be so constant, some groups, very dedicated to learning more about the paranormal, have used the house as an experimental laboratory and have obtained some remarkable evidence not only expanding on the history of the house but also furthering the study of paranormal. - http://thesalliehouse.com
This house is in a neighborhood that looks fairly normal, not too far from Amelia Earhart's birthplace house. It looks really spooky even during the day however, nothing really to do except jump out and take a picture. There was a pretty new motorcycle parked out front so we hurried to take one photo so as not to disturb any current residents. Just a neat place to view if you're in the neighborhood.
