kittyjanusz of Into the Light Paranormal
The Graber Olive House is the oldest surviving business in Ontario, Ca. family owned and operated since 1896. The property consists of barns, storage buildings and sorting rooms, most dating back to the late 1800s. Enormous storage rooms that... It’s a business where most of the work is still done by hand, much as it was done 100 years ago. The land has remain virtually unchanged for over 100 years, while new housing projects rose up around it and land was bulldozed and carved out to accommodate the growing area. All that changing energy around it, families come and go, memories left behind. I believe that the Graber house is becoming some sort of vortex for spiritual energy. It still holds old Earth energy from Native Americans, early settlers and even people who worked for years at Graber, sorting and packing olives for decades. This unchanged plot of land has become a place of familiarity to spirits, these entities, it’s a place they still recognize. I think that’s another reason historic locations remain haunted for many years. A ghost from the 1800s may stay as well as a ghost from the 1940s. It’s as though the memories become layered. This type of energetic stability of these old locations have been known to attract lower vibrational forms, too. Creepers have been seen in many haunted locations. They crawl up walls, ceilings, and may pass through walls.
