A Trip To This Haunted Manor In Iowa Is Not For The Faint Of Heart
There are plenty of haunted places in Iowa, from haunted hotels, to houses, to theaters and even college dormitories. One of the most fascinating haunted places in Iowa is Malvern Manor in Malvern, Iowa.
Malvern Manor originally started out as a hotel in the early 1800s, and then served as a nursing home and a group home for the developmentally disabled.
It is said that the group home was supposedly shut down due to abuse allegations against the residents.
There is even remaining blood spatter left on the 2nd floor that is claimed to be from a beating of a resident.
While the manor sits empty now of human occupants, it is said to be very haunted.
There are three different areas of the manor: the nurse’s wing on the first floor, the “blood hallway” on the second floor, and the “shadow man hallway” on the other side of the second floor.
The manor is now the subject of many paranormal investigations, and there are many claims of paranormal activity throughout the manor.
In the nurse’s wing, people have reported hearing disembodied voices and mysterious shadow play at the end of the hallway.
One room in particular is said to be haunted by the paranormal. It is referred to as “Gracie’s room,” and people have reported seeing a female apparition and hearing disembodied voices there.
On the second floor, people have reported hearing disembodied voices and coughing, seeing physical items move on their own, shadows, and footsteps.
Paranormal investigators have recorded EVPs (electronic voice phenomenon) capturing breathing on people’s necks, whistling and the sounds of scratching on the walls.
One man even reported sensing an evil presence in the “shadowman hallway,” and said he was picked up by the evil spirit between rooms 17 and 18.
These are just a few of many paranormal encounters that have been reported at Malvern Manor over the years. Are you brave enough to visit?
