Interview - Henry Ghost Hunters

by Rusty Tanton, October 30, 2006 - 1:31pm

Show notes

In this spooky Halloween episode, Amber and I sit down with Andy and Albert from the Henry Ghost Hunters, a not-for-profit group which attempts to explain unexplainable phenomena in Henry County. Topics discussed include Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVPs), orbs, and different types of hauntings. We hope to record a follow-up podcast in about a month where we accompany the ghost hunters on an investigation of the abandoned mental hospital on Briarcliff Road!

Hey great show you guys. I got ghost chills several times!

Now Amber, you have to tell me more about this place you and Rusty went with the Emory and the deserted buildings and all. The reason I ask is because John and I just got back from an excrusion in Dekalb country where there were a lot of unused buildings. Check it out on my flickr page ... maybe we all went to the same place.

Ghost Hunters,
Thanks! We're psyched about searching for ghosts at the hospital.

Thanks also! You can view Amber's photo gallery of the Georgia Mental Health Institute here.

Not the same place at all but it looks just as interesting! The park that contains the buildings that we visited over the weekend

is called Brook Run park in extreme north Dekalb county. I can find out info about the park online but nothing about what the buildings might have been.

I don't know if that's the exact building or not, but there's a building on the property that's supposed to be one of the most haunted places in the state (if you buy into that sort of thing). Check this page and search for "Dunwoody" with your browser's find function. You'll see two entries for the Brook Run mental hospital there.

I could find only scanty info online (same as w/ the Emory place), but Mike, apparently the place you went was formerly the Brook Run Retardation Center. (Lovely names they had for these places back in the mid-20th century.) It closed in 1997... apparently there were more than a few suspicious deaths there, and a bit of an outrage at the treatment of former patients in their new homes after the place closed. I found this AJC story:

Oh and according to the Infiltration web site, Brook Run is the "dirty whore" of Georgia UE spots. :P Whatever, we can't all be UE snobs. I want to go!

Just joined on here cause I saw ya'll were talking about Brook Run. I was actullay on thursday and friday night at 2 am. We went with some people both nights. I have had a few beers, but when we found the morgue i got in the tray and they shut me inside. pretty crazy, but if you ever go check it out, every thing happens on the third floor in the third room (hallway)from the end of the east wing(East if your standing in front of the building looking at it). Have fun But watch out for glass on the floor
