The large 17,000 square foot schoolhouse looks out of place in the small town of Farrar, Iowa. Over the decades employees and students reported hearing voices, slamming doors and sightings of unnatural figures walking the halls. After sitting abandoned for five years, Jim and Nancy Oliver purchased the building in 2006. It quickly became apparent they were not alone.

Mission: Are you brave enough to stay the night? On the other hand, maybe a daylight tour with one of the owners would better suit you. Maybe you don’t have the nerve!

While visiting Farrar, the tour guide said something that really hit home for me - not all hauntings are caused by tragedies, perhaps, in some cases spirits linger because the location brought joy. There is a strong possibility that school was a place of love; somewhere you knew you would receive food, warmth, and safety.

A note about Farrar, (spoiler alert if you haven’t watched!)

One of the hardest parts about making a paranormal television show is telling a cohesive story to our audience, who was not there, and who have zero background on the location - in 44 minutes of air time.

When we investigate, we do our due diligence and interview everyone we can, research every angle we can and present the case to our “client” as best we can.

What makes the episode does not effect the case whatsoever. Meaning, for example, last night’s case at Farrar - we interviewed multiple people, took and filmed research trips and had evidence that DIDN’T MAKE AIR. They didn’t change our findings, but we just didn’t have the time to show everything.

Mostly, our clients understand this, (which the Farrar folks definitely have here, they were lovely.) But people we haven’t had any contact with, who feel connected to the school, but weren’t part of our investigation in any way, are vocalizing their concerns.

I wish every episode could be hours long, but it can’t. We do our absolute best and pour our hearts and soul in to every case and sometimes it’s hard for people to accept our findings, especially if is’s something out of left field, which we’re known for. But that’s why we do what we do. If it wasn’t different, we wouldn’t be the team we are.

Again, we didn’t find anything negative at Farrar. We found someone misguided and misunderstood, in addition to many other spirits, but Terry stood out to us and needed us at that moment.
