“I've never seen that house fail to produce, and I think it does that on purpose because it wants to bring people back.”

Taylor Pickman, in his interview with us from October of 2018

Location:

508 N. 2nd Street, the address of what’s become known as the notoriously haunted “Sallie House,” the most haunted house in the city of Atchison, in the most haunted city in Kansas, and possibly the most haunted town in the United States.

 

Background:

What we'd heard is that witnessing a single paranormal event can change one's life. What we know now is that this is true and often it happens when you're least expecting it. It also doesn't matter if the experiencer receives validation from others of their encounter because they don't need anyone to tell them what they experienced. On the other hand, we'd all like to share our stories with like-minded individuals, partly to gain some comfort in thinking that we've not gone insane and also to learn more about what happened to us. In that regard, tonight, in the final installment of our series on the Sallie House, we'll hear from our last two interviewees. First, Dr. Sean Daley, a professor of anthropology who has done extensive paranormal investigations at the Sallie House will discuss the overwhelming evidence he and his team have collected there. Next, we'll also hear from Taylor Pickman, whose parents Tony and Debra were on the receiving end of the most intense activity while living there. It appears that the house isn't done with them yet. Our experience at the Sallie House has been a milestone for us on this podcast, and whatever your feelings about this story, we hope that you'll continue this journey of exploration and understanding with us, with minds a little more open to the possibility of the impossible.

“I originally thought that it was a transducer overload, which translates into loud volume being recorded by a microphone that couldn't handle it. Based on my experience, that's how that sound would be created. I could not get the recorder to reproduce that type of a sound.”

Ed Primeau of Primeau Forensics on his first call to us after he received our recorder.

 
 
 

Location:

508 N. 2nd Street, the address of what’s become known as the notoriously haunted “Sallie House,” the most haunted house in the city of Atchison, in the most haunted city in Kansas, and possibly the most haunted town in the United States.

 

Background:

When it comes to the Paranormal and Supernatural, everyone wants proof.  And yet, not everyone can seem to agree on what would constitute this proof.  So what about evidence that might lead to proving the existence of a spirit world?  Well, not everyone can seem to agree on what is considered actual evidence either.  Since the invention of technologies like photography, and audio & video recording, there have been many purported instances of these recording capabilities capturing occurrences of a spectral world interacting with our own.  For many, this is still not enough.  We certainly didn't expect to get any evidence ourselves when we visited the Sallie House on July 20, 2018.  But now that we've captured something that at least could be considered anomalous with our audio recorder, we want to know exactly what it is and how it got there.  While we may never get a definitive answer as to what that sound is we captured, what we know is how hearing it made us feel.  We've also received a wide range of responses from listeners who have told us how hearing it themselves has affected them.  Some have perceived within the audio file a sense of rage, frustration, and sadness, and some merely regard it as random static.  Those perceptions have spurred their own emotional responses, ranging from fear and queasiness to even anger because some listeners can't accept it as anything but noise.  In some ways, it doesn't matter to us what that audio may be or if there are no words in it because a message was felt, loud and clear.

Ep 124: The Sallie House – Ghost in the Machine Part 2

 
 
 

“We have seen the Sallie House... and it has seen us.”

– Scott Philbrook

 
 
 

Location:

508 N. 2nd Street, the address of what’s become known as the notoriously haunted “Sallie House,” the most haunted house in the city of Atchison, in the most haunted city in Kansas, and possibly the most haunted town in the United States.

 

Background:

Belief is a very personal thing. Challenging beliefs can lead to war amongst nations or a war within one's self. Having to reconsider what we believe about our spirituality or lack thereof, can be a very disquieting exercise but often a fruitful one as it leads to growth. But what obligation does the believer have to convince the non-believer of their story? Does it matter if the believer doesn't care what you think? In a way, our egos and skepticism protect us from feeling the discomfort when considering the impossible, because if the impossible is possible and we're not in control of our world, then who, or what is? If an experience like what you might find at the Sallie House can change your beliefs and thus change who you are as a person, how would you handle it? If one day you're challenged to stand up for your beliefs, what will you do then?

Ep 123: The Sallie House – Ghost in the Machine Part 1

 
 
 

There are many truths of which the full meaning cannot be realized until personal experience has brought it home. – John Stuart Mill

 
 
 

Location:

508 N. 2nd Street, the address of what’s become known as the notoriously haunted “Sallie House,” the most haunted house in the city of Atchison, in the most haunted city in Kansas, and possibly the most haunted town in the United States.

 

Background:

Houses are supposed to be warm and inviting, friendly, a place where we can feel safe in their presence, just like people are supposed to be.  But as much as we would like to hope all people are shining examples of those qualities, we know all too well some people are not, and it is the same with houses.  Houses can have personalities, just like people, and sometimes those personalities are a spirit of joy and sometimes those personalities house a spirit of darkness and mystery.  And then there are unique houses, like the one in Atchison, Kansas which has had so much reported supernatural activity within it, that it has become notorious for being the most haunted house in the most haunted town in Kansas.  But is it the house itself or what passes through it and keeps returning that gives it its character? The house in question is known as the Sallie House, getting its name from the spirit of an eponymous little girl that is said to dwell there. Sometimes it is thought that Sallie plays harmless pranks on visitors and sometimes, something more sinister than pranks. While we may not know what goes on in the spirit realm, what seems to be true is that once you experience the spirit of a place, you can feel drawn to return, and in turn, that spirit may want to revisit you.

Ep 70: Henry Plummer (Part 3) - Interview with Frederick Allen

“The severest justice may not always be the best policy.”

- President Abraham Lincoln

 
Location: Nevada City, Montana.  Settled on June 6, 1863, it was one of two major commerce towns in the territory, along with its sister city, Virginia City, MT.  Presently, Nevada City has been restored as an Outdoor Living History Historical Museum and tourist attraction.
 

Background:

The case of Henry Plummer represents the gray area between due process and necessary action, depending on whether you view a rise in criminal activity as a matter for the justice system no matter how lacking, or local imperium no matter how brutal.  In an interview with Frederick Allen, author of A Decent, Orderly Lynching: The Montana Vigilantes, we discuss his initial interest in the story, the motivations of the people involved, and the debate their actions spurred, then and now.

    Ep 69: The Sheriff and Outlaw Henry Plummer (Part 2)

     
     
     
    Location: Virginia City, Montana.  Considered a "Living Ghost Town," Virginia City offers visitors a well-preserved glimpse into the life of prospectors and pioneers of mid-nineteenth century America and was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1961.  The proposed original name for the town was "Verina" after the wife of Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War, by men whose loyalties lay with the Secessionists.  However, a Connecticut judge, G. G. Bissell, a Unionist, staunchly objected and recorded it as "Virginia City."
     

    Background:

    The dual nature of Henry Plummer's character would leave us questioning his legacy and the legitimacy of his ending.  Was he simply an honest lawman reluctantly entangled in the rougher aspects of frontier justice or a downright robber and murderer with a badge?  There are authors who believe he was solely one or the other but there also seems to be ample circumstantial evidence that he was likely some combination of both.  The problem of determining his guilt or innocence, set against the backdrop of a nascent legal structure for the American West, would stir a debate that we continue to struggle with today.  When it comes to the protection of our families and communities, what measures are we willing to accept to ensure our safety?  When does crime prevention and the ad hoc adjudication of those in authority become a miscarriage of justice?  Where is the line between the precepts of our more mature legal system and common sense and what measurement should guide our conscience to determine when a line has been crossed?  We all want what's fair in light of our personal convictions, but like every condemned man, all Sheriff Henry Plummer wanted was a little more time.

    Ep 68: The Sheriff and Outlaw Henry Plummer

     
     
    Location: The town of Bannack, Montana, now a ghost town you can visit, with many buildings still standing.  Nearby is the still-lively ghost town of Virginia City, Montana, which hosts public festival events, Old West reenactments, and well-preserved historical displays.
     

    Background:

    Henry Plummer was like so many young men who ventured into the frontier of mid-nineteenth century America; full of a spirit of adventure and eager to make their fortunes in the gold fields of the Old West.  Handsome, charismatic and ambitious, Plummer soon went from trying his hand at prospecting to a career in law enforcement and was even encouraged to enter California politics by his supporters.  Plummer's successes, however, were tainted by his foibles as it was noted that his evening activities sometimes put the wild in "Wild West."  A move to Bannack, Montana, and election as sheriff of the area promised to restore his career and reputation.  This fresh start at the bottom of Plummer's pan would prove to be just a flash, as the townsfolk would soon suspect his connection to the robberies and murders allegedly committed by a gang of Road Agents who came to be known as "The Innocents" and many speculated he might even have been the mastermind behind the purported crime wave.  But was Plummer actually guilty, or just guilty by association and a victim of circumstance and mob mentality?  Whatever the truth of the matter, Sheriff Henry Plummer eventually found himself at the end of his rope.
