Paranormal Investigation for members only (no guests allowed and no one under the age of 18)

This location has never been investigated before by anyone. We are the first.

Cost - $55.00 per person (payable at time of RSVP)

We will have 6 hours to investigate 3 floors. We will be separated into 3 groups of 5-6 depending on how many people sign up. Please do not wear any perfume, cologne or scented lotions - as it makes it hard to determine phantom smells. Please feel free to bring any equipment except for Ouija boards and headlamp style flashlights. You can bring food and drinks (non alcoholic) that can be left in the cafeteria area, which will be our setup area and also where we take our break.

History and Area of Investigation:

The building was commissioned on November 1, 1940 and completed in January 1941 and spans 18,000 square feet, covering 3 floors. The building served as many things, including an Air Terminal for personnel that were transferring from base to base.

The base was also once part of an Indian burial ground and later part of a Spanish land grant of Don Luis Maria Peralta. The original site was 300 acres and when the station closed in 1997 the total area was 2,527 acres or one-third of the island of Alameda.

We will have access to all 3 floors, including exhibits of World War I and World War II artifacts, uniforms, helmets and many other items. Also a library, makeshift medical area, walk-in vault and a multitude of memorabilia including a Pan Am exhibit.

Paranormal Claims:

I wasn't going to list anything here because the location has never been investigated before, but after a 3 1/2 hour walkthrough I can definitely say that the location is active. I recorded the entire tour and in the first 16 minutes I probably got 10-15 EVP's, the first one in under 2 minutes. I am just guessing that the spirits were excited that someone was coming there to try to communicate with them and hear their history. I think this is going to be a really good experience and I am looking forward to sharing it with you.
