Some History

Research shows that there was a small wooden church at this site in 1888 with a parsonage erected to the west at 994 Lovejoy Street. Drawings were gleened from the archives at the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society and further information was obtained regarding Henry Lovejoy who is the namesake of Lovejoy Street. The brick church was erected in 1895 and was well-attended by the congregation of the Methodist-Episcopal denomination. A photo of the first board members was also obtained for our records. The building was abandoned for a short while until a funeral director took over in the late 50's. To accomodate services, a building was built inside the church with three viewing rooms. There is an apartment attached which is now used for meetings and various other events. The viewing rooms now contain countless artifacts and one room is the New York Central Terminal Gallery which includes a model of the terminal building.


The highlights f the last investigation was the K2 activity in the basement. It was almost like a light show for a good 5 minutes.

On a previous trip we saw the K2 meter responding directly to our questions and black masses in some of the photographs taken. We have always experienced something at this location....

There is quite a lot of evidence captured at this location as many other groups have investigated in the past. I am just going to talk about my own experiences as I have investigated the location on a number of occasions.

I was just embarking on my psychic journey when I visited the museum on an investigation. The night had been quiet when I decided to explore by myself. I wandered through the viewing room to a small back room with an opening into the attic. I started getting quite an uncomfortable feeling in my chest which is a tell-tale-sign for me that I either ate too much for supper or I am feeling an energy. Let us assume it is the latter :) I decided to leave the room and as I walked back through the viewing room I felt a presence behind me and for the first time, I saw an orb with my naked eye. The orb was very bright and came from behind me, moved towards the corridor and vanished. Being the professional investigator, I screamed and ran from the museum and did not stop until I reached the border. (NOT) :)I stopped and started to look around to see if I could find a possible cause. When I exhausted all the possibilities, I went to tell my fellow investigators.

Apparently, lightening can stroke twice for not 30 minutes later, I saw a second one. I will tell you more about that at another time :)

    I would have loved to go back to Iron Island again but unfortunately that weekend was already promised to my family. Have investigated there many times when I lived in Rochester. Very interesting and active place.
