Paranormal Task Force will be assisting After Dark Paranormal with an outstanding event at the
very iconic, historic and haunted Ashmore Estates!  For this event, you get a 2 hour paranormal
presentation on Ghost Hunting then you get to investigate this iconic location from 6 p.m. to
2 a.m.!  This is being limited to only 20 people and the funds are going to a great cause, The
Lost Limbs Foundation!  

Ashmore Estates started as the Coles County Almshouse in 1869.  It was operated as an
Almshouse and then later as a psychiatric institution until 1986, when it closed its doors for
good.  During some of these years the living conditions were deplorable and many deaths
occurred.  Many poor, sick and mentally disturbed individuals called it home in its 117 years of
operation.  Some perhaps still do.  Ashmore Estates has also been featured on the Travel
Channel’s “Ghost Adventures”, SyFy’s “Ghost Hunters” and the Booth Brothers’ documentary
“Children of the Grave 2”.  It has quickly become a favored place of paranormal investigation
known for its day and night paranormal activity.

Be a Ghost Hunter for a night while investigating Missouri's most haunted castle and one of the
most haunted locations in the Mid-West.  Search for the unknown during this public overnight
investigation at the same location and with some of the investigators featured in the
paranormal documentary "Children of the Grave" which has aired on SyFy and Chiller.  Also,
Pythian Castle was featured in a segment titled "Behind Stone Walls" on "Ghost Lab" and on
"The Haunted Collector" as "Pythian Secrets".  Paranormal Task Force has been featured in
various documentaries and productions which have aired on SyFy, Chiller, Travel Chanel and
more.  Such shows and productions include "Children of the Grave", "The Haunted Boy (The
Exorcist File)", “Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files” segment “Truck Stop Terror”, "Ghost
Adventures" special 100th episode, and more.

Originally built around 1911 by the Knights of Pythias for use as a home for widows and orphans
where dark hidden secrets and tragic events went untold for years.  The Castle later became
part of the Army's O'Reilly Hospital Complex in 1942 and served as the Service Club for enlisted
men.  It was during this period that the Castle also started serving a plethora of unexplainable
activity.  During WWII the O'Reilly Complex also housed three or more wards of POW's.  Many of
them were interrogated within the walls of the Castle and tales from visiting veterans over the
years sometimes tell of "not so happy" endings. In 1947 the Castle became part of the Veterans
Administration 500 bed tuberculosis hospital until 1952 when vacated.  From that time forward it
served as many uses until being bought by the current owner in 2003.

With it's eloquent charm, mystic atmosphere, mysterious past, lovely hosts and an abundance
of occurring unexplainable events; this is one place that you want to add to your "places to
visit before you pass on" list.  When you indulge yourself within this building once, you will find
yourself with an addiction to return multiple times to experience more of what it has to offer.

A pre-investigative meeting and tour will start at 7:00 p.m. to present the historical & haunted
history of the Pythian Castle. Then the all night investigation will begin between 8 and 9 p.m.
and conclude at 4 a.m.   A midnight snack will be provided.

Attendees will be divided into three groups and rotated to investigate a different floors of the
Castle at different times throughout the night.  Everyone will have the opportunity  to
investigate with investigators of Paranormal Task Force and to use equipment and receive
paranormal field training as desired.

(Booth Brothers) "Children of the Grave" (aired on SyFy) and "The Haunted Boy"; "Haunt U"
which aired on Comcast's Direct TV (Paranormal TV); Ghost Adventures; Fact or Faked
Paranormal Files and more.

The Ray County Museum was build in 1904 and served as the Poor House, then served as a
Nursing Home before becoming the current museum in the 1970's.  There are numerous
documented deaths at this location through its history and also many artifacts which could add
to the paranormal activity as well!  Our previous two investigations of this location have
resulted in many unexplainable experiences including captured EVP's and even a visual
anomaly on a thermal imager.

A pre-investigative meeting and tour will start at 7:00 p.m. to present the historical & haunted
history of the Museum. Then the all night investigation will begin around 8:30 p.m. and
conclude at 4 a.m. Everyone will have the opportunity to investigate with investigators of
Paranormal Task Force and to use hand held investigative equipment and receive paranormal
field training as desired. You are also encouraged to bring your own investigative equipment if
you have such and remember not to forget a working flashlight!  If you don't have equipment,
then do not worry as you will be able to use some of ours!
