Doctor's House Museum & Brand Library                                 Glendale, California          

We recently had the amazing opportunity to investigate two separate locations that are on the same property at the same time. Since we're a small team, it stretched and tested our abilties to coordinate both investigations. We've always said that when things are meant to happen - the Universe has a way to make that happen. The fact we were able to schedule both of these locations together was pretty exciting. 

 

While it is true we didn't catch anything of quality on audio or video - we have to emphasize it doesn't mean either of these properties are not haunted - it merely means we did not capture any evidence worthy of sharing with you. We only want to present to you the strongest pieces that we come across. There are dozens of recordings that we have that didn't make the website or our presentations. 

 

First up, the Doctor's House Museum.....

Built around 1888, this house was originally located at 921 East Wilson Avenue. The Doctors House is one of Glendale’s two remaining Queen Anne-Eastlake style Victorian homes. It was occupied in succession by four notable doctors, which gave the house its name.  Subsequently, silent screen star and filmmaker Nell Shipman lived in the house from 1917 to 1920 with her family and a menagerie that included two bear cubs.

 

The house itself was split into two parts and moved to its current location in 1979.  The Glendale Historical Society was created in 1979 to help raise funds and oversee the restoration of this magnificent home. In 1984, the repairs were completed and the Museum was opened to the public. Docents hold tours every Sunday, except in July and on Holidays, so you can take your own step back into time.
