I had been first introduced to the Farrar Schoolhouse in 2012. My friends Alicia and Dennis were vendors for their shop Des Moines New Age Shop and were attending Iowa Paracon. Dennis had called me to have me come out to the event. The schoolhouse is about 15 minutes away from my home, but at that time I had not heard of the school. I was interested in the paranormal ever since I was a child from watching Scariest Places on Earth and MTV’s Fear. The Villisca Axe Murder house had always piqued my interest. But I had never really been in a haunted place before; it wasn’t until I first stepped into Farrar that I knew that there was another side and experienced the paranormal first hand. I didn’t investigate the schoolhouse that night, but I got a creepy vibe initially when I was walking through the building. It wasn’t until I kept coming back to the school that my creepy vibe transformed into a yearning for more experiences. The following year, I had attended Iowa Paracon with my mother, my sister and my sister’s best friend. We investigated the school with other people and paranormal investigators. We heard a locker slammed, saw shadow figures, and heard things. From then on, I was hooked. I have been back to the school multiple times. I have heard things, been touched, seen shadow figures, and had flashlights turn on and off on command. Every time I visit the school; I have had a different experience each time. Investigations are like fishing; you must put the bait out there and just wait. If you try to force the experience then it is probably likely you will not have an experience. You have to go in with an open mind and not hype yourself up; everybody’s experience is different. I have a good experience with Farrar and keep going back for more.
