Despite the first winter storm of the season and freezing cold temperatures! I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, and photography tour. I Am still culling through the 2000 pictures taken on the three days I was in the Weston Area.

Our Tour guide was helpful , informed and flexible with the group of 6 strangers. I was exhausted by the end of my two session day but happily so!

So many photographers have to skulk about on the outside of wonderful architecture and historical places, it's a winning idea to charge and bring them in . I wish more facilities that were privately owned would do so.

Thanks for an incredible experience. It was worth the 8 hour drive, snow and ice ! and more than worth the cost of admission.

Still giving me chills! The TV shows do not do enough to highlight the nightmares this place can give you.

Me and a group of 9 friends went on an overnight right around Halloween, it went from 12AM to 630 AM. Got evidence of paranormal things, EVP and tons of emotional evidence and even heard a distant sound of an old woman scream on the third floor. Its nothing like the movies, their isn't in poltergeist events, but occasionally you do capture and hear/see/feel unexplainable things. The feeling of sadness/sorrow and anger sometimes will over encumbers your body in a certain sense so whatever is/if in there is well worth the stay. Its definitely a must at one point in your life.

Scarey but lots of interesting tour! We had ghost hunters with us and they seemed to believe the place was haunted.
