Fenton Historical Society

Reader Submission March 3, 2010

Ok everyone who grew up in Jamestown has been to or at least heard of the Fenton Museum in Jamestown. It sits on a dark hill and one of the oldest and most historical sites of the town. Many mysteries come from there. Such as the wife and daughter of Mister Fenton died a yr to the day of each other and if I’m correct on the birthday of the daughter.

Well one day I took my son, My daughter, and my nephew to see the historical place. Well they seemed pleased..However we went to the second level of this place and I had my camera ready to miss nothing. As a child everyone said it was haunted and I wanted to see. I wanted to know if there was a such thing as ghosts. Well As we went up stairs I opened a door to a room that was for storage. It was supposed to be locked. However a had a calling..a feeling. I couldn’t help my self. The room was dark not any light at all. The floor for the room was raised and about two or three feet higher from the floor itself. It was crammed full of stuff. I took three consecutive shots with my camera and shut the door afraid to get caught. Well strange as it may seem both of my kids got really sick after that. My son even more so than my daughter. He was seated on the stairs crying that he wanted to leave and that his head hurt and he felt really sick to his stomach.

Well we left after that and he vomited as we got home and felt remarkably better. I thought the pics were nice but no evidence of any thing. Then later in August I was scamming threw my pics and noticed that room. The three pics. My sister had given the camera for my birthday and I was now more accustomed to using it. So I zoomed in on the pics all the way and started looking at the stuff in the room. Well on this aquarium looking thing I was this weird light or something. As I got to the second it changed and looked more strange like a face or something not moving positions…then on the third I saw… and others agreed… for I believed I was going crazy..a mans face about 50 yrs in age in a a hat from the civil war or something. You can see every detail to his face. He looked sad or mad not sure. But this is a picture of a man who served. I wondered if it was one of Mr. Fenton’s family members or himself. I don’t believe in ghosts but this is something so unbelievable. I actually would love ghost lab to see these pics. I am always willing to show them to someone. Everyone who see them knows or believes I caught something on that camera. I would be willing to meet with someone about this and do more research at the Fenton Museum with some help.

The strangest part of this is that my kids got so sick and were fine when we got home. My son used to talk to people that wasn’t there as a child. Laughing. I always got creeped out like he was crazy at 18 months old. And that is not the age for pretend friends. He would talk to them at 3 am. However I think he is very sensitive and whatever I caught on film bothered him that day. It was raining but that wasn’t the reason for the ailment.

    Fenton Historical Society does not like anyone even mentioning the name ‘ghost’ while there. The ladies stated that a grade school tour came in one time and a kid did not want to see the museum because some one said it was haunted.
    I have tried to talk them into doing a ghost tour or allowing an investigation there and have been told to leave because they don;t need that kind of stuff to be associated with their museum.
