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.  

Have you booked 2022 yet?

For open dates please check out our calendar.

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 16 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 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. :)

We had a request from Edward from Over the Road Paranormal so thought we would share the info on our website so others would have it as well.  Thanks Edward for asking about it, always glad to help investigators when we can.  Click each photo to enlarge.

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 or Saturday night and go from 7pm-2am.  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.  You can extend your 7p-2a ticket by also purchasing a bunkhouse.  This is good for 4 people to join you in your 15 hour investigation.   

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.
In most cases water is turned off in November, or sooner, to bathrooms and not turned on until sometime in March, or later.  A portable toilet can be brought in at an additional expense. 

There is
no heat or air conditioning in the building dress appropriately.

AE Bunk Houses available for all investigations and events

The two small bunk houses were built in the winter of 2015 and are 12x16.  The large bunk house was built in July of 216 and is 20x20.  The small ones rent for $50 and the large one $100 per night.  These are included at no charge in your private investigation.  Checkout is 10:00am, unless extenuating circumstances prevail.  All bunks are equipped with 4 beds, AC, heat, ceiling fans, electrical, TVs, DVD players, and chairs.  In addition the large unit has a pull out couch, recliner, stuffed chair and a table and chairs.  We will have various DVDs available for your use in the event you have that someone with you that likes to visit locations but just does not want to run around in a dark building and investigate.  Linen for the beds are not furnished, you will need a sleeping bag, blankets, and/or pillows.  There is a fire pit by the bunk houses firewood may be available at times but can not guarantee it.

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

Always nice to hear from visitors

Jessica ~ My boyfriend and his son watched the Ghost adventure episode before going, and I had to explain to them, it’s nothing like that. It’s such a welcoming, homey feeling! And once you go once, you always want to go back. It amazing what your doing for that place, most people would have just tore it down and forgot about it.

PARA ~ My group investigated last night and we had a lot of experiences. I wanted to let you know what those were, so you could share them with other guests if you would like.  The 2nd floor was definitely the hot spot. We had a few spirit box responses on the 3rd floor, but on the second floor, we had other things as well. In addition to inelegant spirit box responses,  we had several people who saw shadow figures and more significant, we had a lot of interactions in Hannah's room. We asked someone to make a noise and we heard a pebble be tossed. We actually found the pebble. We had this experience reoccur at least 4 times and every time, we would find a new pebble in the room. It was very interesting. 

TH ~ We want to thank you for a wonderful time. Hannah is a doll and its nice she knows so much about the place. The bunk houses were very nice, I was pleasantly surprised. I  wanted a place close to home to take my curiosity group that has never been on any haunting. I would love to come back next year with my actual team and if Hannah wants to join she's more than welcome. Thanks again, we will be back! 

RJ ~ Just wanted to take a moment to say how much we enjoyed our time at Ashmore Estates. It was seriously the best experience my husband and I have had with an investigation. Hannah was amazing! Friendly, informative, welcoming, helpful and just absolutely cool - it would not have been the same without her! The way you have set it up to accommodate technology was a very nice surprise, so thank you for that! :-)  Wanted to share my positive experience with you! We are looking forward to returning again soon!
