Haunted Historic Humphrey House .
Orland Pk. IL

The Home of Senator John Humphery and built for him in 1881.
It remained in the family until willed to the Historical Society.

At first unknown to the public as a haunted location and one that ..........
Edward Shanahan was pulled to. He walked up the stairs and knocked
on the door, as he felt drawn to here, a location found to be haunted.

*All photos unless stated different, are taken by Edward Shanahan.

But when the Sun starts to set, be it Summer or
Fall, the look and feelings there starts to change.

There is more to this then meets the eye.
It also has a tie in to the Historical Haunted Location - Bachelor's Grove Cemetery.
Bachelor's Grove Cemetery and Humphrey House

The Historical Society tour guides tell of the fact that one
of the first children that Mr. Humphrey and the 1st Mrs. Humphrey had died at birth.

Mrs. Humphrey's family (Patrick), had a family plot and family buried at Bachelor's Grove Cemetery and Mr. and Mrs. Humphrey had the child buried with Mrs. Humphrey's family members at Bachelor's Grove.

The question even asked by some of the officials of the
Historical Society, is the 1st Mrs. Humphrey who was
found dead in the house in March of 1898 and buried at
a different cemetery then her child who died and is buried
at Bachelor's Grove Cemetery, could Mrs. Humphrey be
the woman and child seen at Bachelor's Grove?

Waked in the living room.
Below is a photo taken by
Shannon T. & Betty E. who attended one of our Paranormal Outings at the Humphrey House.
The location is the living room of the home and is the location family members where waked.

If you look to the right on the wall, you will see a painting with an arrow toward it.
The photo below is a blown up photo of the painting.

This is also one of the rooms Ed Shanahan did his "Circle of Energy" and individuals
attending started to feel and know the feelings of the spirits in the room. Ed also
started to channel in this room during the last "Circle of Energy" done there.

This is also a room that becomes active for those who have Dowsing Rods.

The Painting blown up.
Spirits in painting.

And No.... There was no one there that resembled the image of the person on the left
that attended any of our paranormal outings at the house. Nor are there any photos or
painting on the wall across from this one (about 20 or more feet), that looks like the
person on the left of the painting. Matter of fact the image on the left of the painting
resembles Mr. Humphrey later in his life and who along with the 1st Mrs. Humphrey
and the young children that also died in the house, were waked in this room.

The 1st Mrs. Humphrey was found dead in the house. The 2nd Mrs. Humphrey
(secretary to Mr. Humphrey) moved in and was married to Mr. Humphrey within 3 months.

We were allowed to go in to this closed off area.

The Children's Play room / area.
This room has been off limits to the general public. But we were allowed to wander in the
room and Ed also attempted his "Circle of Energy " in this room. The feelings picked up
in this room were many. And it was felt by the majority there, that the feelings are bad.

* Look to the right of the photo - No flash used *
Haunted Up Stairs.

Another area Ed was pulled to take a photo at in.

As you can see by the above photos of the outside of the house, ...
there are many rooms and all including the basement were open to
us to experience what was of the past and will remain with those
who attended our Paranormal outings there in the past. And will be
the experience for those who come out with us in the future to the
Haunted Humphrey House.

Happy Hauntings,

Edward Shanahan
