Paranormal investigators looking into Waterloo historic house

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Calhoun County Paranormal Investigators will be performing the first ever paranormal investigation of the Rensslelaer Russell House Museum Friday. 

The Museum is part of the Grout Museum. It's one of the oldest homes in Black Hawk County. There is a possibility this house could be haunted as Rensslelaer Russell had a daughter that died after falling in a cistern, or well.  That incident happened in 1861. She was six at the time. Her funeral was held at the House that is being investigated.

The Russell family had moved to Waterloo from New York and Rensslelaer worked in banking and real estate.

Calhoun County Paranormal Activity is a Christian-based group that was created in 2005 by Seth and Jesse Alne.  They started ghost hunting as a hobby in 2001.  That's when Jesse had his first paranormal experience. They said they have a passion for figuring out the unknown in an effort to help others. The group does not use Ouija boards or anything of that nature.

They investigate anything from historic landmarks to residential homes. One of these includes an apartment in Cedar Falls that is located near University of Northern Iowa. Seth Alne said this apartment was full of paranormal activity.

Some of the landmarks they have investigated are Farrar Schoolhouse in Bondurant and Villisca Ax Murder House.

Two of their investigators were chosen to be part of Biography Channel's "My Ghost Story." That show will air in late spring.
