Roads Hotel Investigation
The Roads Hotel, located in Atlanta, Ind. (due north from Noblesville), stands firmly entrenched in the progression of the time and history of an Indiana farming community. It hasn’t changed! There is one main street that eventually connects routes toward Tipton to the north or Anderson to the east. Perhaps there is a need to move on past a life in a small Indiana town—some do—or, retain a lifestyle of ties that bind as many others settle into. The Roads Hotel sits on the main drag as it has since its construction in 1893, cemented into an era of mystery and secrets where, from all reports, still manages to intermingle with the present. Haunted? It would appear that former occupants of the hotel have not moved on after death, continuing to co-exist with the living. The formal dining room–first floor entrance. The two story, rectangular Queen Anne style home, with matching two story porches, would seem to have started its life as a hotel and boarding house. Times change, as does history. Atlanta certainly did. During the Prohibition, the building transformed into a speakeasy (available booze for purchase) and, as legend dictates, a brothel during the short period when the small Hamilton County town experienced a “Gas Boom,” bringing in workers and the establishment of six taverns. Al Capone and John Dillinger were purported to have visited. I believe, from all the stories I’ve heard about Capone and Dillinger visiting locales, here, and also on the south side of Indianapolis, that stories are sometimes questionable. Really! Let’s give credit where credit is due. At that particular time they were much too busy with mayhem and merriment to be casually traversing the back roads of Indiana. Who has the time for that? The second floor hallway…strange rumblings. Many say the creepiest room houses dozens of dolls and guests capture very disturbing EVPs. Paranormal investigators from all over the state, and country, have been coming to the Roads for years. They claim everything from shadow figures to doors opening and closing, voices, apparitions, lights turning on and off, footsteps, photo and video evidence, and EVP’s (audio recordings). Former caretakers who lived in an apartment at the hotel validate the claims. Paranormal teams would come and go, spending a few hours, and then leaving. These caretakers were there 24/7, with the night hours not being the only time “things” would happen. The paranormal happens in the daytime too! We will have the hotel from 7pm- 10 am the next day. This place has been on many paranormal shows. Join us in this adventure.

What we're about

In search of the paranormal will be adding some new meetings in addition to our monthly paranormal meeting. These meetings will be held to expand upon the "spiritual" aspect of the Paranormal to enhance our individual abilities. The intention I had in starting this group was so people could see what true paranormal experiences are really about. This is a place to go to share experiences you have had with others that have had unexplained experiences too. I have set up numerous investigations at known haunted locations so everybody can partake at their own level and just have fun doing it. Paranormal is a general term (coined c. 1915–1920) that designates experiences that lie outside "the range of normal experience or scientific explanation" or that indicates phenomena understood to be outside of science's current ability to explain or measure. I have had experiences since I was a child and as an adult my psychic abilities have grown. I am able to see spirits and communicate with them and have used my abilities to help people. I believe everybody has had some type of experience they can't explain or are afraid to talk about. We will have meetings to share our stories and plan investigations. Welcome!
