Post by Aaron_CPG on Thu Apr 24, 2008 11:26 am

It's been hectic so I apologize for not signing up sooner!

BUT... CPG IS FINALLY HERE lol www.centralparanormal.com

Hey jeanette, If you didn't check back on the TAPS forum i gave you a reply about the groups in the area and also mentioned the Excalibur thing.

Excalibur Nightclub that is, seeing as I work in that industry, my contacts are talking to the management over there to get us in... interested??? Very Happy

I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Hey Aaron, welcome to our boards!

I just read your response on the TAPs forums. I had heard about a few of the "haunted tours" in Chicago, but I never really looked into them all that much. Are they pretty interesting? I'd imagine it'd be somewhat like a history lesson of a certain place of places with personal testimonies.

What exactly is Excalibur Nightclub? I'm not sure! I'd have to learn a little more about it I think. Thanks for asking!

eh, they are not all they are cracked up to be. I don't even waste my time with them

Excalibur...

Supposedly the most haunted location in Chicago. It served as a temporary morgue back in the 20's I think for some sort of epidemic.

http://www.excaliburchicago.com/

Address: 632 N. Dearborn St.
Year Built: 1892
Architect: Henry Ives Cobb
Date Designated a Chicago Landmark: February 26, 1997

One of the city's few remaining and best examples of Romanesque Revival architecture, this monumental, picturesque-style structure was designed by one of the era's most successful architects. It is generally considered one of Cobb's finest works. The Chicago Historical Society occupied the building from the 1890s until 1931; it was that organization's need for a fireproof structure that accounts for the structure's granite-clad construction. The building's later uses included the prestigious Institute of Design and recording studios for influential blues and rock n' roll performers in the 1950s and 60s.

The forms of the Romanesque Revival actually derive from the 11th and 12-century architecture of France and Spain, although the style enjoyed a resurgence in the 1880s due to the work of architect H. H. Richardson. It was used for many building types, including houses, clubs, and commercial buildings, before its popularity ended in the late 1890s. Examples can be found in many community areas, including Douglas, Grand Boulevard, and Kenwood.

Common characteristics are:

heavy, rough-cut stone walls
round arches and squat columns
deeply recessed windows
pressed metal bays and turrets.

I work in the entertainment industry so I have alot of contacts that can get me into places like this. Some friends also have worked their past and present and report weird things happening all the time.

Sounds like a unique and interesting building. Ah, I see. So, currently, Excalibur is a club then. Crazy how such a historical building can undergo so many changes. You're trying to organize an investigation there then? I'd imagine you aren't planning on going there to club? ha Maybe have a few dances with a couple ghostie girls??

Yeah, that could be a possibility for us, I think. I still would like to organize a practice investigation for us sometime after I meet with everyone (we're meeting most everyone this Saturday, so I'll have to schedule something for the remaining people.) Mainly, we just need to go over investigation protocol and make sure everyone knows what they're doing and how to use the equipment and whatnot before we actually jump right in. I think it'd help the team in general just kind of get warmed up.

After our practice investigation takes place though (that's still way under development though, as I'm not sure where we can do it at the moment), I think we could be open do doing something like this, if you'd like us to come. Smile

lol! DJing it? That definitely would be one of the more unique investigations I've heard of! Wink
