In June of 2015, Daniel realized his lifelong dream. The infamous “Hinsdale House”, a homesite of mysterious paranormal insect infestation activity and historical structural exorcisms, which has been featured in different books and featured on national network television series, became available for purchase. Wasting no time, he made an offer that was accepted, and he became its proud owner. 

The 1853 “Hinsdale House” is currently staged in its 1970’s period dressing to maintain its integrity from that era when the haunting’s began. The home is currently used as a paranormal research location

Everyone has some type of beliefs system…. While I do perform many scientific experiments and push the boundaries, I do believe in God and a higher power. I think it is important that before entering into any type of known haunting, to put your belief in that higher power for protection and light. We all need to stay positive and stay grounded.

This very important haunted house in Hinsdale perhaps the most famous haunted house in the area, has all of the elements of a good ghost story. Mysterious history, strange sightings and eye witness accounts. Pictures of ominous lights and shadow people appearing from no where.

Book Reviews

"I have to say this book was written with class, dignity and respect. The history and facts about the Dandy family and to everyone involved was on point. Daniel adding his humor side made this book one you just couldn't put down. From me investigating this location and seeing the house for myself this is a book you would want in your library for all paranormal investigators and historians alike."
