eastGhost.com with M.A.P.I., Sep 2019.
Several teams attended in 3 groups: inside the Main House, inside the Summer House, outside on the grounds.
Approximately 10:30pm: Interesting, the colorful stationary "orbs" hovering near Liz and Cliff, southeast of Main House, despite no flash with only ambient lighting during long exposure. Numerous reports include communications with young aethereal prankster "Jacob" and sightings of shadow apparitions and the "little girl upstairs".
Gauss meter response, quiet at around 0.1 Gs for most of the night in the Main House, agitated and skyrocketed up to 13 Gs during our singing of Civil War era songs in the Summer House. Meter sat stationary. We took notice: "It was as if ghosts were dancing or whirling about unseen right in front of us."
Liz' copper divining rods were active as usual and responding promptly and clearly to questions posed; copper rods in a sanitized, human-removed apparatus did not respond to any prompting. LASER shadowing, animal boobytraps, and other meters and apparatii went silent/unaffected.

Thank you, M.A.P.I.; we had a superb time.
Karma demands They must disclose intent to victims
Consider the circumstantial evidence for Poe having been poisoned by Jesuits -- Edgar Allen Poe, a literary "Oprah Winfrey" popular celebrity of his time, and also (in recent Catholic publications) an oft-touted poker-playing good friend and next-door neighbor of Jesuits, seems most likely to have been poisoned whilst in Catholic-laden Baltimore, by Jesuits, as seems their wont, in order to silence his self-proclaimed greatest, longest and sadly final work, "EUREKA", which painstakingly posits the simple and pernicious dismissal of the intently humanity-minimizing Jesuitical cosmology thusly: An infinite number (or even merely the Jesuitically-insisted upon "vast number" - hear Carl Sagan's "billions and billions") of stars would make even the darkest night sky as bright as day.
With all the supposed stars in the Jesuitically theorized cosmos, the darkest night sky should appear bright as day.
Spookily, the U.S. Park Service docents at Poe's house in Philadelphia resoundingly demean EUREKA, apparently abetting to shame and mislead curious sheeple back into flock. Go try it yourself; mention EUREKA to a US Park Service custodian of the Poe museum in Philadelphia; login and report back what you hear. Witness their off-putting derision and ridicule first-hand, versus the otherwise reasonably expected warm welcome befitting any increased curiosity, discussion and wonder even mildly instigated by Poe -- after all it is his museum; open minds expect curators would be lighting and fanning fires not extinguishing them. Also look at how Poe's EUREKA -- his final, longest and self-proclaimed greatest work -- is suspiciously absent from nearly all publications available at the Poe museum. What a curious thing to have to dutifully seek out, and in there is the clue. Witness the handywork of Jesuit mislead and control by omission.
To celebrate this season of boo here are a few nighttime shots, exploratory notes and research findings that together weave an eerie menagerie. Below is the statue of Minerva at Forest Glen, Maryland. The aging structure is the remainder of a 'Spanish Dorm' at the northeast corner of the property. About one-half mile along Minerva's Medusa'd gaze looms the Mormon Temple.
This fascinating complex is steeped in oddity, military and medical intrigues, darkly intertwining and spanning from our nation's founding days to our present. Spooky enough all on its own, but when it's real, and militarily verifiably so, that's what really gets you ...transmogrifying mere goosebumps into palpable fear.

Forest Glen was a close-by ecape-destination providing early Washingon, DC residents cool relief in its comparative highlands (DC was in part literally a swamp, hot, muggy, Potomac River in the summer) before it was a premiere girls' finishing school; then it became an Army convalescence home before being used for biowar research ... and then ultimately becoming an expensive housing development (!).
Concerted efforts at reclamation and historical preservation have been ongoing for many years. The property was a failed (or abandoned?) farming thing, then a failed commercial thing, then a failed educational thing, then a failed military thing, and now it's a pseudo military-commercial historical-preservation compound meets high-priced housing collective kinda thing. The depth and twists of its many at-odds juxtapositions and uncanny energies give lasting allure to all things Forest Glen.
Also on the property is a magnificent Spanish Ballroom, an authentic Dutch windmill (sorority house), several other unusual structures, and Maryland's only real Japanese Pagoda.

Bad deaths alerted by numerous seances undertaken on the property and an unshakably intertwined history of military misery and biowarfare taint the area. The same commander at Frederick Maryland's FORT DETRICK (25 miles to the northwest) is also in-charge of the adjacent Forest Glen Annex and its noxious Walter Reed Army Institute of (biowarfare) Research. By some accounts, the Army spent '7 figures' on work in the woods immediately northwest of the FGA – but exploration revealed only one of 7 bridges was shored-up, not even rebuilt; meanwhile, what are expensively out-of-place: Numerous sink-tubes, filled in, capped, yet having automatic monitoring sensors and electronics, ostensibly 'gas sniffers' but more likely having something to do with potential bio-outbreak-causing leakage from the nation's [publicly-admitted] largest germ warfare lab and production monster sitting right up the hill...

Totally coincidentally, of course, Maryland's first “outbreak” of West Nile Virus was detected in the woods immediately west of the Forest Glen Annex biowarfare production facility. This hauntingly mirrors the first detected "outbreak" of Lyme Disease in Old Lyme, Connecticut, at the very spot where the ferry landed from Plum Island, the USDA's zoonotical / tick-born disease research facility, also totally coincidental, of course, but that's a whole other intrigue – see the books HIGHER FORM OF KILLING and LAB 257.
BELOW Beta Castle at Forest Glen, sensitives routinely pick-up strong spiritual energies. Washington Post archives confirm a deadly fall from the rooftop in early 1900s. Rods, ouija and guardian-angel communications respond fervently along the path in front of the castle. Reported experiences here have included muffled voices, foreboding of anger, and "stones thrown".
BELOW What was around back in the lower floors, however, gave a totally different kind of eerie chill – animal cages, lab facilities, and what one sensitive described as "an impenetrable veil". Unclassified military records confirmed medical and biowarfare research; nearby massive BUILDING 503 biowar lab echoes these findings.
Regarding the expensive housing uncomfortably nearby, in the scheme of things DC and compared to the still-buried live World War One munitions in DC's initially-pricey Spring Valley neighborhood (on American University land once used by military for testing / proving grounds), namely Mustard, Chlorine and Phosphgene gas munitions -- "yellow cross", "green cross", and "white cross", respectively, named for the markings on the bombshell casings -- wealthy families living within eyesight (and positively within slightest-whiff distance of accidental toxin release) of the nation's largest [publicly-admitted] biowarfare lab and production facility hardly raises any dead. Yet.

The Forest Glen area of land was originally owned by the Carroll family, of Founding Father infamy, and it was long ago a tobacco plantation. In those days, Rock Creek, which empties into Washington’s Georgetown near the first lock of the C&O Canal, was much deeper and rapidly flowing; now it is barely a trickle sans rainstorms. Tobacco was harvested and rolled down from the higher ground to the Rock Creek and then floated down to Georgetown upon shallow raft, it is said.
BELOW Moving shadows and phantamasgoric mists appear throughout the property, which is unexpectedly steeply terrain-ful with many intricate bridges, statues, constructs, stone carvings and features hidden by growth, forgotten to time.
The Carroll graves in nearby cemeteries are very interesting to visit with empaths and spiritual friends, even in the daylight but especially as dark waxes. Slave graves long ago covered over (relocated? doubt it) give credence to spine-chilling tales of hauntings, both audible and sightings all over the facilities, including inside the WRAMC Commissary and reported off-official-record by military personnel. If you can imagine "Poltergeist" happening to the military, that gets at the deeper, darker, multi-faceted soul of Forest Glen.

Orbful photographs and wil-o-wisps are common, along with disembodied shrieks at night not attributable to corporeal animals. It's not just 'one or two' but dozens. Over years. Claimants include well-to-do residents and active military personnel.
Regarding the endless amount of military, medical, political, and Occult weirdness that permeates DC and surroundings, you just have to know where to look and who to ask for the good stuff – and that is nearly never any 'official' sources or controlled outlets.
Visit Forest Glen sometime when you get a chance; much of it is open to the public without ID checks. Walk in the woods, bring a camera and some copper divining rods, maybe some dice, an open mind, and at least one unflappable friend of stout heart ...just be careful what you touch and even more careful about what touches you.

State May Close Rosewood
Barbara Pash Assistant Editor
SEPTEMBER 12, 2003
The fate of Rosewood Center, the state facility for the developmentally disabled in Owings Mills, will be decided this fall. The Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is in the process of deciding which of four such facilities around the state to close, possibly by November. Rosewood is one of the four under consideration.
At a meeting last Monday, Sept. 8, of the Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon Coordinating Council, an umbrella organization for area community groups known as ROG, advocates for Rosewood's closing faced tough questions from those who oppose the closing. Similar disagreements have arisen at the other three facilities under consideration: Potomac, in Hagerstown; Brandenburg, near Frederick; and The Holly Center, in Salisbury.
J.B. Hanson, a spokesman for the state health department, said that department head Dr. Nelson Sabitini is finalizing a report to be presented to the legislature and therefore felt it is not appropriate to comment on the issue. It is not known why the state has decided to close one of the facilities, what the criteria for closing is, and what will happen to the vacant facility.
Kelli Nelson, a member of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, a federally mandated agency that is part of the governor's office, said that a decision by Dr. Sabitini would reportedly be made before the General Assembly convenes in January. It was also her understanding that if Rosewood Center was closed, the facility would be sold and the proceeds put into a state fund that provides services in the community to the developmentally disabled.
Ms. Nelson, an advocate for Rosewood's closing, spoke at the ROG meeting along with officials and clients of ARC of Maryland and ARC of Baltimore. ARC is a private non-profit organization that provides services, including group homes, for develop- mentally disabled adults and children.
The possible closing of Rosewood has been a controversial issue since it was first raised at least two years ago. Rosewood Center originally consisted of about 600 acres of land. But as the state consolidated its services at the center, it began selling off parcels of land. The land is sold at fair market value and the money deposited into the state fund for the developmentally disabled.
Since 1997, the state's deacquisitioning process has declared about 300 acres of Rosewood "surplus," in preparation for being sold, although not all of that valuable acreage has been disposed of yet. Rosewood Center currently utilizes about 225 acres for the facility itself.
Rosewood land has gone for different uses, including the Irvine Natural Science Center, Ruxton Country School, the Maryland Economic Development Corp. and private developers.
The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore is seeking to purchase a 22-acre parcel of land for a Levindale Hebrew & Geriatric Center nursing home and possibly another 26-acre parcel for the newly opened Shoshana S. Cardin Jewish Community High School, currently housed at Temple Oheb Shalom in Upper Park Heights. Community activists are hoping to reserve a 54-acre parcel for a future Baltimore County public middle school.
In 1969, Rosewood Center was home to about 2,800 people. During the 1970s, the state began deinstitutionalizing residents and placing them in community settings like group homes. Currently, the center has about 250 residents and 700 employees.
Vicki Almond, immediate past president of ROG, estimates that about half of the residents are "forensic" patients, which she defined as people who have allegedly committed a crime but are not capable of standing trial.
At a public meeting last year, state officials said that they had no plans to close Rosewood, although the resident population and size of the facility might dwindle even more. At the meeting, parents of Rosewood patients pleaded with officials to keep the facility open, saying that their now-adult children, medically fragile and/or developmentally disabled, were not capable of living in group homes in the community.
"The patients' families are vehemently opposed to closing Rosewood," said Ms. Almond, who agrees with them. Chair of the Rosewood Center Citizens Advisory Board, Ms. Almond is forming a Rosewood Task Force to look into the matter independently.
"When you speak to Dr. Sabitini, he says they have no intention of closing Rosewood and that's true now," said Ms. Almond. "But if they close Rosewood in November, then it's too late."
Ms. Almond says proponents of keeping Rosewood open believe there should be a choice. "If people can live in the community, that's fine. But if not, they need to be in a setting like Rosewood," said Ms. Almond, who hopes to turn Rosewood into a community resource center. It would remain a residential facility but the staff would also be available for educating group home personnel.
"We don't want Rosewood to just sit there until all these patients have died off. We see it as a viable resource center," she said.
The issue is clouded by a 1999 U.S. Supreme Court decision on the Olmstead case, in which an institutionalized Georgia woman sued to be given the opportunity to live in a community setting with adequate support. The court ruled in the woman's favor, saying that institutionalizing the developmentally disabled was a form of segregation. But the decision is apparently open to different interpretations and both advocates of closing Rosewood and those who want to keep it open cited the case.
Speaking at the ROG meeting, Brian Cox, of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities Council, said that it was the council's belief that "all people with disabilities should live in the community." Mr. Cox said even medically fragile people can get the care they need.
"The community support system has evolved from years ago," he said. "We do not believe in segregating people in society."
Mr. Cox said that while Rosewood Center was built for a couple of thousand people, its closure was more a public policy issue than an economic decision. "We don't believe these institutions are necessary," he said, adding that should Rosewood close, residents would be placed in the community at a "gradual pace, making sure community support is in place."
State Sen. Paula C. Hollinger (D-11th) attended the ROG meeting. Ms. Hollinger commented that she has received a lot of correspondence on the subject. But she said people who want to express their opinion should do so with Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., who creates the state's budget.
"It's not a legislative decision. It's a budget matter and once [funding for Rosewood] is out of the budget, we can't put the money back," Ms. Hollinger said of the General Assembly.
A forum on the fate of Rosewood Center will be held Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. at the center, on Rosewood Lane off Garrison Forest Road. The public is invited to attend.
