Recently I was given the opportunity to be a guest writer on horror fiction writer and blogger Brian Moreland's site. I had never written for anyone before, so this was an exciting new experience. By chance, in a passing comment, he had asked if I would be interested in writing about the asylum I had referred to when commenting on his article about the Trans-Allegheny Asylum in Weston, West Virginia. I agreed immediately and interestingly enough, Molly Stark has opened up several doors for me in my aspiring writing career.

In the summer of 2010 this investigation took place and it really has stirred up some conversation about its history and the many stories of the paranormal activity which is quite prevalent there. Most residents of the Nimishillen Township area in Ohio are familiar with the rumored apparitions, orbs of light, and voices which have been seen and/or heard since its closing in 1995. Our investigation reinforced and confirmed most of these rumors. Now the legend of Molly Stark Sanatorium has taken a new turn in my life. I just found out through my aunt that back in the 1930's, my great great aunt and her son died there. My great great uncle also was confined at Molly Stark as well. In light of this new information, I have decided to write a follow up blog revealing how Molly Stark has impacted my family and I would like to further expound upon the paranormal activity there as well.
I would like to offer my deepest thanks to Brian Moreland for the guest writer opportunity and I encourage everyone to check out his four books available at Amazon.com and his new book coming out this summer! You won't be disappointed!
I have quite a few ideas in the works for future posts on this site. To give you a glimpse...The Union House in Missouri....Personal haunting experiences on the Katy Trail...and perhaps another surprise investigation in Ohio over this summer. Stay tuned....
