The Belmont Manor started a paranormal program in 2015 with IGT members, where we give lectures and hold public ghost investigations. This was the third investigation we've done and there were about 26 people that paid for the event. All proceeds go directly to maintain the historic mansion and we do it because we want to educate the public and allow them the chance to investigate.
We split into three groups. Ronda, Tom and I led one group and we had a LOT of experiences. Here's what we found:
1) The Ghostly Little Girl - In one room (we won't say which) we sensed a little girl. Tom and I have sensed her before. Last time she told me her name was Amanda or Amelia and that she died at 6 of the flu. The ghostly girl also told me last time she loved to hear to the piano being played from the ballroom on the first floor.

2) The Portal - A portal is a doorway of energy to another place. In one of the bedrooms during a previous investigation many of us on the team sensed a portal, and we learned that it went out to the cemetery in the backyard. What's interesting is that those who are sensitive (not mediums) can stand where the portal is located and feel tingling in their feet or legs. Several people in the group experienced it.

4) Ghost Box - At the end of the investigations the three teams met back in the main meeting room for a demonstration of the ghost box. The ghost box is basically a radio that scans all stations and stops for an instant on a station to highlight a word, in response to a question asked by an investigator. It works because ghosts have the ability to manipulate electronic things to give messages.
There were a lot of great questions from people in our group and it was an amazing experience to get confirmation of details from the little girl's ghost.
