Investigation At The Buxton Inn-(Investigation)
INVESTIGATING THE BUXTON INN
The Buxton Inn was built in 1812 in the quaint college town of Granville, Ohio. The area is uniquely picturesque and is worth the trip just to spend some time in this friendly town. The Inn includes four homes with the original Buxton Inn being the center of the activity--in all aspects.
Three of my friends, who also happen to be members of my El Dorado Paranormal Investigations team, wanted to do a sleep over at a haunted Bed and Breakfast for a one night get-a-way. Pat E and I have been friends for over 50 years. Her daughter, Darlene and granddaughter, Leann have become close friends throughout the years, as well. The four of us rented room #9, which is said to be the most haunted of the three rooms on the second floor. However, the other two rooms that face the courtyard, 7 & 8, have also had active.
There are three spirits who are most often seen at the Inn--Bonnie Bounell (The Lady in Blue), Orrin Granger, the original owner, and Major Buxton. All three had owned and operated the Inn at one time or the other over the past 200 years. They loved the place so much, they never left. And there's also a spirit of a gray cat that enjoys sleeping with some of the guests on occasion.
The Orrs own and operate the Inn at
the present time. We talked with an Orr
who was very open and accommodating to our informal investigation.
There is a door in the basement wine cellar/restaurant area that opens and closes by unseen hands on a regular basis. Also in this area are news articles about the spirits at the Inn. They are posted all over the walls, and are quite impressive.
I highly recommend spending at least one night at this great Bed & Breakfast, even if you aren’t into spirit hunting… but perhaps after spending some time there, you will be!
(I was told by Hub Pages to remove all my close up photos of the orbs we captured during this investigation because they were too pixelated. The people at Hub Pages obviously don't get it.)
