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.
WE ARE BOOKING PRIVATE INVESTIGATIONS AND TOURS. You may contact us here or at our phone of 217-899-9978 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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.

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.

The Governor of Illinois has mandated that anyone inside a building must wear a mask if vaccinated or not. We will require all public investigations abide by this mandate. Masks should be worn upon entering the building and while investigating throughout the building.
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.
