At the top of Mt. Madonna, the man known as The Cattle King built his summer home for the family. Ruins of the homes still remain today. You can see the staircases that led to the homes (his son had a separate house), as well as walls that used to encompass the ballroom. The site itself is county park that is open to the public during the day; however, not many people visit the area, which makes it an ideal investigation spot.
We had conducted an investigation at this site a couple years ago and were glad to come back. We captured what were possible intelligent EVPs, but with the high winds, it couldn't provide us with conclusive evidence of a haunting. This time, we visited in the spring while the weather was calm and no other visitors could contaminate the evidence (although there's always animals and overhead planes contributing).
As with the previous investigation, we got a few K2 hits. After reviewing the audio, these K2 hits corresponded to points where we got the most active EVPs as well. With or cell phones off, and no power anywhere at the site, we were unable to identify any source of EM fields. The K2 activity was infrequent and random and we couldn't get an interactive session working. Static electricity readings were consistent with only slight fluctuations (with high sensitivity, this is normal).
At one point, our investigator K saw a black shadow in the woods by the ballroom and quickly ran over. She saw it run away and when she got there, a branch was left moving and a potential footprint had been left in the leaves and mud. This is consistent with the claims of seeing shadow figures at the site.
Upon evidence review, there were substantial amounts of EVPs collected. Most were faint and seemed unrelated to what we were asking. There were also both male and female voices. Based on our interpretations of the audio, it definitely seems that the ruins are haunted, even if just in a residual way. It is unclear though who the people are that still linger there. We never got a clear answer on whether Henry Miller himself was there, or any other member of his family.
