The owner of this building originally contacted Dave and Ann to take a look at what was happening in the upstairs during his attempted restoration. Ed warned us about the heavy smell of bat guano. He also said it was a time capsule. Never before had we been able to experience a true 1950's residence left as it was. It did NOT disappoint us.

The occupant/s here just prior to the police raid and closure smoked just a tad.
Ed Shelley is a very charismatic man as a City of Woodland representative. His wealth of knowledge for the town, the great fire, and the prior use of many buildings helped put many pieces of this site's puzzle. Yet there are so many unanswered questions.

There is an uncommon amount of activity in every section of this location. So much so, that if you visit, bring extra batteries and leave them outside in your vehicle. That includes television camera's! Even the huge batteries that last a reporter 1-2 weeks have been drained while live on the air. Mic's used to communicate with producers have acted beyond bizarrely, causing missed cues. Dave and Ann have offered limited tours to the public, but with a caution to any the attend.
Above is a letter that Ann Found to a Mr. L Brooks at the River Farms Co. from Aug. 19, 1948. He seems to be the primary spirit here.
To the left is the Fox 40 news camera that kept loosing it's fully charged battery power!
