Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse

Dec 10, 2008 Season 4 Episode 27

The lighthouse consists of 44 stairs that lead up to the Watchroom, a circular room with three portholes. Many strange happenings have occurred in this room, one being a female lighthouse enthusiast, who heard voices, only to find she was alone inside. Another witness to this paranormal activity heard a man ask, "What are you doing?" only to discover there wasn't a person in sight. Many believe Joshua Card, the former lighthouse keeper, who preferred to go by the name "Captain," haunts this place. Fort Constitution mainly served the country as a lookout and supply storage unit through many wars since the 1630's. The fort was one of Paul Revere's first stops on his way to warning colonists about the impending Revolutionary War. The fort consists of a lookout area, a powder magazine, a sentry room where prisoners were held, and sally ports on each side that served as entryways. On July 4, 1809, disaster erupted at Fort Constitution. Gunpowder that was reserved for a fireworks display accidentally exploded killing 14 people, most of whom were children. Some believe it is the residual ghosts of the 1809 explosion that haunt the structure today. Members of the Coast Guard are afraid to go into Fort Constitution at night because of the general noises they hear and its eerie nature.

Spirits On the Water

Dec 03, 2008 Season 4 Episode 26

The Star of India was built back in 1863, originally christened as the Euterpe. On her first voyage to India, the iron windjammer suffered a collision and her crew mutinied. This wasn't the only tragedy on the Euterpe. The ship fell into disrepair over the years until a restoration effort began in the 1950's. Fully restored by 1976, the Star sails at least once a year with a fully-trained volunteer crew, making her the oldest active ship in the world. The history of the ship makes it a landmark for San Diego. The paranormal experiences on the ship make it a landmark for investigators. Across the port from the Star of India rests the Berkeley, the 1898 steam ferryboat that is a National Historic Landmark. During the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the Berkeley carried thousands of survivors to safety. Her captain and crew, not knowing the fate of their own families, worked night and day to help victims escape the burning shores of San Francisco. In the early part of the 20th century, mining was still a vital component of the northern California landscape. You could buy mining supplies at any store, and pure nitroglycerin was available at any chemist's shop. This is why it was not a total surprise when one day, the entire side of Berkeley was blown out by a massive explosion.

Recycled Souls

Nov 19, 2008 Season 4 Episode 25

TAPS explores the Clovis Avenue Sanitarium, a sixty-six year-old, 8,000 square foot mansion and former sanitarium that opened in 1942, staying in service up through 1992. In that time, countless patients passed through the halls, and thousands eventually died. Unfortunately, not everyone who met their fate at the Clovis Avenue Sanitarium did so peacefully. There are stories of alternative and experimental treatments that were more akin to torture than healing. It is said that while their bodies were disposed of, their spirits still remain. Visitors to the Clovis Avenue Sanitarium experience all kinds of paranormal activity, incidents that have left the staff terrified. A former guide was pulled into a closet by an invisible force, the owner has felt breath on the back of his neck, and recently, perhaps strangest of all, the Clovis police department has received 911 calls from this address on several occasions. That wouldn't seem so odd except for the fact that the building has no phone. As a result of its reputation for paranormal activity, the former Clovis Avenue Sanitarium draws expert ghost trackers and recently attracted the attention of TAPS. After a preliminary investigation, the results were off the charts. TAPS west coast has called in Jason and Grant to confirm initial paranormal findings by performing a detailed investigation of their own.

USS Hornet

Oct 29, 2008 Season 4 Episode 22

TAPS returns to investigate another legendary haunted naval landmark—the aircraft carrier USS Hornet in Alameda, CA. The Hornet, the eighth vessel to carry her name, was commissioned at the height of World War II in 1943. She quickly became one of the most highly decorated ships in the Navy. She destroyed 1,410 Japanese aircraft and destroyed or damaged 1,269,710 tons of enemy shipping. Ten Hornet pilots attained "Ace in a Day" status. Later in its life, the Hornet was given the honor of recovering the Apollo 11 astronauts on their return from the moon. The USS Hornet‘s flight deck alone is 894 feet long -- basically the size of three football fields. The aircraft carrier was built primarily by women -- think Rosie the Riveter -- and weighs 41,000 tons. All told, in her 27 years of active service, more than 300 people lost their lives aboard ship. The majority claimed during combat, others from horrendous shipboard accidents, still others from suicide. After being decommissioned, the Hornet was turned into a Bay Area museum. Almost immediately after its arrival in Alameda, staff began reporting strange phenomena. The USS Hornet is considered the most haunted ship in the Navy, past or present.

Apparitions of men, women and children have been reported throughout the house. Recently, one of the innkeepers was on his way to the 3rd floor when he spotted a pair of children's shoes at the top of the stairs. He stopped and peered down the hall and saw a little girl dressed in white peeking at him from around a corner, disappearing afterwards. The Pink House was also the sight of a few terrible fires. Elsewhere in St. Petersburg, TAPS investigates the legendary Renaissance Vinoy hotel, Major League Baseball's favored paranormal getaway. Built in 1924, the Vinoy has always been a preferred vacation spot for the rich and famous. Today, the facility is the visiting-team hotel for the Tampa Bay Rays. The Cincinnati Reds pitcher Scott Williamson had just turned out the lights when he got a tingling sensation, like he was being watched. Then he rolled onto his stomach and felt pressure on him, like he couldn't move or even breathe. He rolled over onto his back and saw a man standing by his curtains. Other reports from players on other teams include faucets that turn on and off as well as toilets that flush themselves multiple times, flickering lights, and locked and chained doors that swing open.

Speaking With the Dead

Sep 24, 2008 Season 4 Episode 17

TAPS visits the abandoned (and skeevy) remains of an art-deco masterpiece, Buffalo Central Terminal. The terminal, a 14-story combination office tower/train station, opened in 1929 and closed 50 years later. After falling through the hands of various owners, the Central Terminal Restoration Corp. acquired it in 1997. In the years since the Terminal's abandonment, it has become a potent source of paranormal stories. Local urban explorers and less respectable paranormal investigators would break into the property to look around, leaving in a hurry and with numerous scary experiences. One volunteer was alone in third-floor offices, and saw two people (described as being dressed in old-fashioned clothing) standing at a water fountain. When he stepped closer, the people and the water fountain disappeared. The experience shook the volunteer so badly that he will not enter the building alone. There are cold spots widely reported throughout the terminal, especially on the train platforms. Some who have visited have asked the darkness for a response, and gotten a loud bang.

Iron Island

Sep 03, 2008 Season 4 Episode 14

When the local preservation society took over this property in 2000, they discovered over 30 boxes of unclaimed human remains tucked away in the basement bathroom. Renovations unearthed remnants of the Episcopal church light fixtures and stained glass that were hidden behind the walls and ceilings as if the original funeral director built a building within a building. Now the building has become a small museum that honors the legacy of the town. Many women who work at the museum complain of being followed around the building by someone who isnt there. One in particular believes this feeling has increased 100% since they received an old artifact, an altar from another century-old church. Temperature fluctuations from extreme cold to uncomfortable heat are found throughout the structure. Furniture and doors have been heard moving and the sounds of shuffling footsteps are common. The original funeral director even admitted that doors that he had closed and locked would be found open. Floral arrangements were found rearranged.
