The Country Squire
            On April 10, 2010 The PCP crew conducted their  first investigation of the
                            Country Squire Inn and  Restaurant.
Our hostess, Mrs. Iris Lennon took  the team on a tour of the area but did not relate
any information of prior paranormal experiences.  The staff and Mrs Lennon met with
Jane before the vigil where the history of the land, buildings, and haunted history were
  The reports of paranormal activity witnessed include whispers, full body apparitions,
pots swinging on racks,shadows moving through halls,and glass breaking.   One
reported event was of  darts being thrown over guests as they dined in the Tavern!
  The Country Squire has been in business for 49 years.
The building was built from lumber and logs from the early
1700's(Baronial Hall).  The architecture of the restaurant
was further expanded by the additions of sections of other
old buildings from the area and bricks from the old
Bowden Hotel in Wilmington. The many antiques, old
fireplaces, and darkened corridors add to the possibility of
dining with Spirits!
The Port City Paranormal team set up to investigate this famous
restaurant with anticipation of a busy night.  Reports  of ghosts,
missing and moving items were well known to us.  Our investigators
had personal recorder and KII meters on when we entered.  
During this visit, KII meters (EMF) were most active in the Baronial
Hall( the oldest part of the building). KII hits were rare in other
Our personal experiences, although not scientific, were of being
followed and watched during the vigil. KII sweeps did not detect any
EMF that would cause these feelings.  Cold spots were noted and
shadows were seen darting from room to room. One team member
reported being touched by small cold  little fingers while in the
Jester's Court.

We reviewed approximately 32 hours of video, and  54 hours of
audio to find over 40 EVP.  No video or still photo evidence was
captured during this investigation. We are currently unable to
determine if some EVP are residual, although  many seem to be
intelligent responses to our questions. Some EVP were clear  but
many seemed garbled, or in another language. The origin of  
messages recorded became more apparent when  played during the
reveal.  Although not clear to us they were to our Scottish hosts! One
EVP sounded like the lullaby sung to Miss Iris  by her mother.

After reviewing of the scientific data we have significant audio proof
that there are spirit voices from the past at The Country Squire. Our
personal experiences and those of the owner and staff support the
stories of the haunting.       
We will continue to examine the evidence......and will post more as
we discover each new voice.
