Lewis Loop Haunted Home

2014-02-15 | Knik Museum | Alaska

Haunted Home in Talkeetna
Location Information
Location Information:

The Knik Museum (mile 13.9 Knik-Goose Bay Road) is the largest of the two surviving buildings remaining from the original town site of Knik. The building was the Pool Hall in the center of Knik which peaked with a population of over 500 people in 1915. The town at that time had a Post Office, 4 General Stores, 4 Hotels, 3 Saloons, Movie House, & this Building which was the Pool Hall.

When the Alaska Railroad decided to ran tracks through Wasilla in 1917 the town of Knik quickly disappeared. People packed up everything including buildings and moved to Wasilla & Palmer.

Please leave a comment at the bottom of this page with your thoughts on what is being said.

No EVP’s were captured during the Investigation.


EMF Readings:


Aimee’s K2 in pegged into red in the basement near her only on & off between 10:48pm and 11:10pm.

Visual Evidence:
There were several Orbs captured on video in the basement but none were moving in an intelligent manner nor were they emitting their own light which means they were just random particles of dust reflecting light.

Personal Experiences:
John & Carly heard footsteps upstairs coming from the forward section of the room. No source could be found and no other team members were seen walking on the cameras at that time. Time was 10:17pm.

 
Links to other Investigations/Reports:

Although the building had been investigated in the past the results were never published online.

Investigation Summary:

The team was surprised that nothing signifant was recorded or experienced. The basement seemed to have the most activity with Aimee’s K2 meter spiking at over 20 mg while she was investigating with Cheri.

The building is very close to Knik-Goose
Bay Road which transmitted a lot of road noise and headlight reflections into the building. There is also a dog kennel nearby where howling dogs could be heard. This resulted in all the potential EVP’s being debunked as explainable noise after reviewing all other recorders.

Although the team did not capture anything
significant on audio or video does not necessarily mean that the Knik Museum is not haunted. We have found that some of the quietest investigations are the most haunted places. The Spirits are either just shy or are reluctant to share themselves with strangers wanting to interact with them.
