Ghost Hunters Season 8


by Chad Alan


"Dead & Breakfast"


Thomas House - Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee


Built in the 1890's by the Cloyd family, the Thomas House now serves as a bed and breakfast.  Many members of the Cloyd family died in the house and the current owners believe that the Cloyd's simply cannot let go of their former home.  Many apparitions have been seen in the house; from a little girl they call "Sarah", to an old lady in pink, to a man that appears in the form of a dark shadow.  Footsteps, somebody whistling, and strange noises coming from empty rooms have also been reported. The house seems to have many visitors who come just to experience the paranormal.  The owners wish their guests just came for the home cooking and would like to know why spirits are so active in the house.  They even provided their own video showing a white figure peak around a doorway and then disappear.


TAPS co-founders Grant Wilson and Jason Hawes were the first to enter the house.  Footsteps coming from the 2nd floor grabbed their attention.  As they slowly walked down one of the dark halls a very audible whistle came out of nowhere.   The whistle was very clear and lasted more than a few seconds.  They headed down to the main level in search of Sarah or the Cloyd's.  A door slamming caught their attention so they headed in that direction and found a room filled with dolls.  Visitors are said to bring the ghost child Sarah dolls to play with.  As they called out for Sarah, the voice of a young girl stopped them in their tracks.  The voice seemed to say "I like my toys."


Adam Berry and Amy Bruni were the next to investigate the house.  Noise and movement coming from room #16's bathroom caught their attention.  The felt that they may have been also dealing with a shadow figure as the lightening in the room seem to get dimmer and then lighter.  They left the room to roam the halls and decided to do some whistling themselves to see if they could have their own ghostly whistling experience.  Well, they got it.  Another audible whistle came from nowhere.  As they sat down in the hallway to try and get more activity, a small shadow figure coming out from the floor, caught their attention.  Britt Griffith joined Adam to try and make contact with Mrs. Cloyd.  They headed to the bedroom where she has been reportedly been seen.  A shadow figure going past the doorway stopped them in their tracks.   Amy headed to the second floor by herself (with the camera man).  She sat down on the bed in room 37, where Sarah shows herself the most.  She set up flashlights and asked Sarah to turn on the flashlights based on her questions and, as if on cue, the flashlights would light up right after she would ask a question.  A must see segment of the show. 


Dave Tango and Steve Gonsalves started their investigation in the room where the owners caught an apparition with their camera.  They tried their best to debunk the video but simply could not re-create the activity in the video.   They started to go from room to room and ended up in the room where the little girl ghost "Sarah" seems to show up the most.  They believed they heard a moaning, but sounded like that of a young girl.


TAPS was very impressed by the amount of paranormal activity in the house.  Many of the experiences by the owners and visitors were backed up during the investigation.  TAPS is not about ghost busting so all they could do was tell the caretakers that they didn't believe the spirits in their bed and breakfast meant any harm.
