This was SJGR's first investigation of this historic building.  The Ireland-Hofer House, an 1840s farmhouse which houses the Monroe Township Historical Society.

Psychic Impressions:

  A presence was felt at the bottom of the 2nd floor leading to the 3rd floor staircase and in the back left room on the second floor.  The team mentioned a sense of vertigo and dizziness when being in the back room. One investigator started to feel extremely nauseous and couldn’t stop gagging.
  The basement seemed to yield quite a bit of activity. There was a feeling by one investigator of someone hiding and they may have been hurt. Three soldiers were picked up that appeared to be from the War of 1812. They seemed to be held up in the basement for some reason.  In the Master Bedroom, residual activity could be sensed, specifically a séance that had been held back in the Victorian era. There was a feeling of a strong male presence in the section of the basement underneath of the porch and in the doorway leading into the room. The impression was that he was trying to scare me and didn’t want me in that area of the cellar. There was also an impression of a male torso wearing a thick off white, dirty long sleeved shirt. At this time an investigator had an impression of the word “asian”
  In the Victorian Parlor an Investigator had an impression of an older woman’s that felt residual.
