We want everyone to have a good time when they come to Ashmore Estates but most importantly we want all to be safe.  Recently we have had situations were people thought it was a good idea to come to the building partially intoxicated or drinking while they were on the grounds.  We will not accept this type of behavior as it is not safe for anyone during the event.  

Ashmore Estates is an alcohol free location,  
Anyone found drinking or bringing alcohol onto the property will cause their entire group to leave with no refunds.  Enjoy your visit at Ashmore but keep it sober and safe.  

Public Evening Investigations - $50 per person
 Pulbic Daytime Investigations - $30 per person

Tickets are limited to 12 on each of our public investigations.  If you want one get it now as they will sell out before you know it.

WE ARE BOOKING PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS AND TOURS. You may contact us here or at our phone of 217-899-9978 or email us at info@ashmoreestates.net. We have electrical set up on each floor and a team room where heat has been included.  We are working on making this the best paranormal investigation experience that it can be.  The building is owned by a paranormal investigator and he has the help of many other investigators.  We are taking the ideas of many and turning this location into a great investigative experience.  There is a new roof on the building and all windows have been replaced or the openings have been completely enclosed.  There is now sunlight inside Ashmore Estates, something that hasn't been for over 15 years.  We have some great plans for the building and as anyone that has been to the building since we purchased it May 3, 2014 will let you know it has improved. Thank you for your patience with us and we hope the building will bring as much joy to you as it has to us while working on it.

Overnight Investigations

We also offer public overnight investigations and tours.  You will want to watch our Facebook pages or the website calendar for these.  The Public investigations are generally held on a Friday night and go from 7pm-3am.  We charge $50 for these and only sell 12 tickets.  We want you to have the best experience possible so we keep the numbers low to hopefully provide this. 

The Tours are held in October as that seems to be the time when most want to get their "scare" on.  We do offer privates year round though.  Check out our Facebook pages or website calendar for these as we offer these so people can see the building that we have grown to love and am sure you will as well.

We have had numerous teams investigate Ashmore Estates since we purchased it in May of 2014.  If you have not been to Ashmore I think you will enjoy your experience there.  Vast improvements have been done to the building to allow easier investigations.  We are continuing to improve the location that has now been dedicated only to the history tours and paranormal investigations.  In 2016 we built a room inside to reflect a bedroom and living room area.  We repaired the top edge of the building that has was damage by the tornado in 2012.  We also want to restore a hospital room on the third floor in 2017 to give it more of a historical feel.  The private overnight investigations are $500 for up to 12 people from 7pm-10am.  This includes the use of out bunk houses, 1 for every 4 members in your group.  All three have 4 beds, electrical, TV & DVD player, heat, and AC.  The large one also has a pull out couch, recliner, table and chairs and Netflix.  There is a fire pit available as well and firewood may be available but not guaranteed, you can always bring your own or call in advance to check on it.  Gas and charcoal grill are available as is the stove, refrigerator, microwave, pizza oven and coffee pot.  There are 3 functioning bathrooms, weather permitting, 2 inside, and 1 outside for those tent camping.  There is a shower also available as well.  At this time we do not have maid service but who knows in the future. :)

In most cases water is turned off November 1st to bathrooms or sooner.
A portable toilet can be brought in at an additional expense. 
There is no heat or air conditioning in the building - dress appropriately 

Daytime investigations

Are you just a little scared to investigate at night but soooo want to get in and do something.  Why not come and investigate during the day.  We have had teams come and do this and had wonderful experiences.  We've had many individuals during the day while working in the building experience hearing disembodied voices and seeing images.  Most believe that spirits are in the afterlife as they were when living so why wouldn't they be roaming the halls of the Poor farm or mental care facility.  We know you will have a good time while investigating during the daytime.  We will be offering public daytime events as well.  Email us today to secure a date to bring your team, friends, or family to investigate Ashmore Estates during the day.  info@hauntedashmoreestates.net
