Last week my previous home buyers who purchased the Snowball Mansion in Knights Landing invited me to come over and see what all they have accomplished in their new home as well as sitting in on the investigation report of the paranormal findings. In simple terms, to find out if the Snowball Mansion is haunted!
Flying Monkey, a paranormal investigation group video taped and made recordings of their findings at the Historical Haunted Snowball Mansion which has long been speculated as being haunted by Lucy Snowball who lost a male child at infancy and her 19 year old son a mere month later.
Upon arriving at the Snowball Mansion, I found everyone gathered at the dining room table engaged in conversation. Don Duncan, lead investigator from Flying MonkeyParanormal Investigation and a camera man, Keith filming the meeting along with the new owners, Nancy and Richard. I was given a glass of Chardonnay and sat down at the table to hear the results of whether or not Snowball Mansion was haunted.
EMF (electronic magnetic field) meter findings were found in the attic along with an audio recording of a woman’s voice (no one could make out what the voice said, however). Windows in the attic along with the audio sound of banging open and shut were also clearly detected.
I personally heard the banging of the attic windows along with the audible woman’s voice through ear phones.
The new owners have experienced drawers in the attic opening as well as the door bell being rung with no one apparently there. Wayne, the caretaker of the Yacht Club by the River for years has seen an elderly woman in the attic window when the home was not occupied. There have also been reports of furniture moving noises at night when no one was awake or moving furniture.
The conclusion form the Paranormal investigation was that although they cannot prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Snowball Mansion is haunted, they do say that there are definite EMF findings and unexplained phenomena at the Snowball Mansion. It was noted that there were more findings at the Snowball Mansion than what was found at Sutter Creek which has long been established as being haunted. The Flying Monkey Paranormal Group plans on coming back to capture some more at the Snowball Mansion.
The camera man, Keith shared that while filming in the attic, every time the EMF reading went up, his camera shut off. This happened several times during the attic filming between midnight and 3:00 am. There was also findings in one of the gazebo’s on the property.
Nancy and Richard proudly display a framed photo of Lucy Snowball on their mantel and plan to gather more photos of the Snowball clan to hang alongside their own family photos.
The new owners are embracing their ghostly roommate(s) and continuing to restore and make Snowball Mansion their new home.
I had a delightful evening with Nancy and Richard and plan on returning soon.
