Just in time for Halloween … the spooky Haunted Mansions of Albion will be featured in an upcoming segment of the Travel Channel’s “Ghost Adventures.” A crew from the series was in Albion this summer shooting at the old Albion State Normal School.
The film crew focused most of its attention Comish Hall, reports said, where people say they have experienced mysterious -- and unexplained -- paranormal activity, including seeing what appeared to be apparitions a woman who worked at the school long ago.
Miller Hall is also believed to be haunted. The Hall was originally used a men’s dormitory.
Now a retreat owned by a local couple, the facility had been vacant for a number of years. State lawmakers originally established the school as a college back in 1893, but it was closed in the early-50s when funding ran out. It was reopened sometime later as a Christian college, but closed again in 1969, according to reports.
Now billed as “the Northwest’s largest indoor/outdoor haunted attraction,” the Haunted Mansions of Albion are open on Fridays and Saturdays through the month of October, and for three-day weekends in later October -- and on Monday, Oct. 30 and Tuesday, Oct. 31, and Nov. 3-4.
It’s located at 437 E. North Street in Albion.
“Ghost Adventures” airs Saturdays on the Travel Channel. The channel has not yet announced a date when the Haunted Mansions of Albion segment will air.
