Up north towards the mountains of Pasadena, California, there is an area well known for it’s stories of the haunted forest and gravity hill. Both are in the same vicinity and are coincidentally haunted. What most people don’t know is that there is a third haunting within the same area. All of these hauntings are within three miles of with each other. The Haunted Forest and Gravity Hill are about a mile apart and the third is about two miles away from Gravity Hill. It is unknown what this third haunting is, however. It’s very mysterious. It’s a burnt-down building in the hills off of New York Dr. Some people say that it used to be an insane asylum. Some say it was a hospital. Either way, having a hospital or an asylum in this neighborhood doesn’t seem to make sense since it’s residential.
I first heard about this haunting in January, 2008, when I was hanging out with some friends of mine. We were talking about the local hauntings such as Suicide Bridge and The Haunted Forest. A friend of one of my companions had mentioned this third haunting. His friend said she was checking out the site of the third haunting, a burned down building, by herself. As she was investigating, she heard a deep, frightening voice call out her name. When that happened, she left immediately. After hearing about this, we wanted to go check it out.
Upon arriving, as we parked, a dog from across the street kept barking at us. The thing was, we weren’t on it’s property and we were walking away from it towards the burnt-down building. It seemed as if the dog was warning us not go over there. About five minutes later, we found some stairs that led down into a room. There was an uneasy feeling that suddenly came over me. We turned on our flashlights and found some disturbing graffiti work. We found something on the wall that said “save you”, along with some creepy faces. After looking around some more, my friend called my attention to something. There was a pentagram painted on the floor. During that time, my body went from feeling like we were in a meat locker, to burning hot. It was 40 degrees that night.
There was no doubt in our minds that satanic worship had taken place on this property. I started to think that this occult activity might be part of the reason for the area’s hauntings. We also found a quote on the wall that said “The dog is the father.” I didn’t know what that meant at the time. Then my friend told me that Satanists call God, “dog” because it’s God spelled backwards. An uneasy feeling came over me with goosebumps spreading on my arms. The energy of this place just got more intense.
As we continued the investigation, we captured some great EVP’s. The first one was of a girl’s voice. Keep in mind that there were no girls
with us on this investigation. It happened as I was photographing this place. We were talking amongst each other when suddenly a girl’s voice showed up on the digital recorder and said “I think I dropped my phone.........Hey!” Another one came up when my friend asked if any spirits had any last words. A chilling voice responded “Yes” immediately. The last EVP is probably the most interesting because it ties in with the first EVP. Another friend of mine asked “Are there any spirits that would like to say some final words to us at this time?” A women’s voice responded immediately saying “Don’t call her, all right?”
This got me thinking if there was a connection between the girl and the woman. Did this girl that said she dropped her phone need help? Why did this woman say not to call her? It seemed like this woman wants to keep this girl from moving on in the spirit world. It feels as if she may be a malevolent spirit. It made me wonder if this girl’s cell phone was somewhere around this burnt-down building.
After going back there a few times with different groups, I was never able to find anything or capture any additional evidence. The history of this place is still unknown. All I know is that people claim that it used to be an insane asylum. Is this mysterious place still haunted? I’d say that it still is.
