About Me

My photo
Behind Every Cloud is a Kindred Spirit (BECKS)I lost my grandfather when I was 17. I had a VERY difficult time getting over it. How could I still communicate with him? I loved him so much I didn't think I could live without him. I read everything I could get my hands on to do with the "afterlife" and that started it all...the love of Ghost Hunting and the Paranormal. I have been researching the paranormal for over 30 years!! It is my way of staying in touch with my grandfather. Being a Ghost Hunter is not always as exciting as it seems on TV. Many nights I have sat in the dark and not a thing happened. BUT it is those times you DO get that one voice, that one unexplainable picture or have an experience that sends chills down your back that makes it sooo worth it all!!! My purpose of this blog is not to make people believe in ghosts but maybe to open their minds just a little bit... I LOVE this crazy thing called Ghost Hunting. It is as much a part of me as breathing. I am just a girl that refuses to accept we can't still contact our loved ones after they die. My grandfather won't let me.

THE MAGNOLIA HOTEL-SPIRITS CHECK IN BUT NEVER CHECK OUT!!!



The Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, Tx is one that is known for spirits checking in but NOT checking out!!!

Featured on “Texas Most Endangered Places” 2012 list by Texas Preservation and destine for demolition, the Magnolia Hotel has now been rescued. Built in 1840 by Texas Rangers, the Magnolia Hotel became Seguin's first stagecoach station and frontier hotel. The Indian Raid Shelter located under the building was once the town's original jail. In 1850 the two story, 10 room addition was added becoming the finest hotel in the area. It was a resting stop for thousands of travelers. After surviving the threat of attacks from the Mexican soldiers, Comanche Indians and the Civil War it then endured the sorrows of the Reconstruction Era. Union Officers took over the hotel while soldiers made camp across the street. By the late 1870's with arrival of the railroad, the hotel once again became the main social gathering point for the town of Seguin. In 1930 the hotel had fallen into disrepair and was transformed into apartments. From the late 1990's until 2013 the building was abandoned and empty. It fell victim to drug users, vandals and prostitutes. In 2013, Jim and Erin Ghedi purchased the building and are now restoring it back to its original 1880 glory! The Magnolia Hotel is truly a Texas Landmark. Over the 170 plus years, thousands of guests have checked into the hotel but for some they never checked out. The hotel is known to be haunted by at least 13 ghosts. Some of the most notable haunts include a pharmacist who mistakenly killed a young girl while attempting to murder his wife. The traveling salesman who committed suicide by cutting his throat has been seen walking the halls at night. Others are the weeping woman who died of a broken heart, the suicide cowboy and the starved prisoner in the basement. The most famous is the fortune teller who held many under her mystic control. Come visit the spirits who linger within the walls of the Magnolia Hotel, if you dare!

Below are just a few pics we took BEFORE our interview with Jim and Erin and before the night time tour.  I will be posting those as soon as I go over them all.  I took A LOT!!!!!!! My team as well as myself had personal experiences here.  

I can't say enough about how nice Jim and Erin where to us and how MUCH we enjoyed this place!!!  It is FULL of spirits and Erin knows each one personally because not only is she a great historian she is a medium.

The video below show our walk-through before our investigation and you will notice Erin's surprise as we walk into one of the rooms and the cabinets are completely WIDE OPEN!!!!  She said they made sure and shut them that morning.

Stay tuned for more pics and more stories.  Listen in LIVE tonight on CLEARSOURCERADIO.COM and be sure to give us a call if you have had an experience in the haunted hotel.
