History: The Vinton Train Depot was started on Aug. 1, 1899. It was erected at 612 Second Ave., at a cost of about $40,000 and was dedicated March 1, 1900. It is considered one of the finest preserved passenger stations in eastern Iowa.
The Horridge House was built in 1859 and is an excellent example of Carpenter Gothic-style architecture. It was built by Dr. Hewett B. Clingan. The brick of the house is believed to be of the local brickyards of that era.
Claims: Shadow figures walking along the tracks at the depot. Conversations being heard in the distance.
During an EVP session with the whole group in the Horridge House Tanner asks "Are you telling us to leave?" There is a faint whisper which appears to say "go."
Brandon and Sandy's group is performing a Spiritus session in the Horridge House. The question is asked, "Do you know somebody here?" The response "him" comes out of the app.
The entire group is in the train depot performing an Estes Method session when we get an interesting exchange involving TPS investigator Tanner.
Brandon and Sandy's group was in the train depot at the time this EVP was caught. Brandon was explaining how the trip wire works and after he finishes he gets a male response "yeah." Brandon was the only male in the building at the time and this was not him.
Tanner and Allie's group were in the middle of a Spiritus session in the train depot. During the session the whole group hears what sounds like a train coming to a stop outside. We went and looked outside and there was no train in sight.
