Lewistown, Missouri
 
 
 
     It long has been one of our favorite places to investigate. And the more we learn of this building, and the spirits which still reside inside, the more drawn to it we are.  This visit was no exception. We looked to explore the old Lewis County Poor Farm, and to try to make contact with the spirits that we seem to encounter there with each visit. Time and vandals have continued to cause destruction in this mighty building, and we do not know how much longer she will be open to investigations. And when the time comes where we must say good-bye, it will be with a heavy heart. But for now, we are honored to have another chance to try to touch those that reside here, and open our thoughts to allow them to reach out and touch us from the other side. Please join us now as we recap our time spent in this location.
