FYI:

I thought you may want to update your information on the Harrison Church at S.W. 16th and Harrison - It is not abandoned, and hasn`t been for about four an half years now, as one of the owners I can confirm this...

One other thing I can also confirm is that the rumors of it being Haunted are not rumors at all, the activity there is real and pretty consistent. As I can not be there on location on a regular basis I hired Caretakers to care for and watch over the building - maybe I should have told them about the Church`s reputation before they signed on and moved in, but I did not I decided not to put things in their head that may have otherwise not been there. Well it only took about two weeks before I started getting calls asking me for information on the Church and if there was anything they should know due to some strange things happening in the Chapel. I dispersed some info in small quantities, again not wanting to make a mountain out of a mole hill, however the mountain showed it`s face all on it`s own, and one of the Caretakers for a lack of a better explanation, was temporarily possessed while someone that claimed to be a former preacher from the 50`s sent over a message regarding a double murder that took place in the boiler room and upper loft of the church.. Ooops, guess I should have been a little more forthcoming with my information.

Lucky for me and my business partner the Caretakers have not as of yet been spooked away, in fact they are intrigued and while investigating and trying to verify the information they were given `that night` they have found a way to live among the `regulars` that pass back and fourth through the Chapel on a daily basis. Yes it`s hard to believe for me also, but what scares some makes others curious - Me? I`m happy in my own home far far away from the Church *smile wink*

Ok... First off I'm going to clarify a couple things about the church and a video I saw on youtube a last yr or the yr before last, the friend Billy Mason was talking about wasn't doing anything negative in fact I know that friend myself and they were actually trying to seal the spirits away in a plain where they wouldn't be a problem, they had explain to me that it was a temporary seal in which case was linked directly to their own energy, and they have told me that there is more than just mundane spirits in the place the spot in the church stair case that leads to the basement/auditorium level that always stays cold has something very negative in the area, two they also said that cause the seal had been disturbed it allowed the spirits to haunt the place agian without any restraints, they also said the seal used they used because it was temporary meant that they themselves were doing research to find away to exorcise the spirits and entities in away that would cause them to cross over and leave in peace, that same friend is the only one I've ever known to be able to go in the church under a new moon at dead midnight and be able to converse with the spirits/entities but they say they refuse to converse with the one they call the "Cold One" or atleast that is the code name my friend has given it, my friend has come up with away to exorcise the place without doing harm to the spirits/entities and told me to find away to get in touch with the new owner and tell them this... If you would like me to get intouch with my friend email me at nightshade_1952@tds.net plz and thx.... And yes there has been more than just a double murder that has happened in that church alot more I personally haven't all the information however my friend does have enough of the info that it caused them to want to find away to exorcise it and help the spirits/entities move on.

I am interested in this particular site maybe to get some scientific evidence to the paranormal but the more I here about this church the more doubt I get in truley beliving that something is here. I have drove by and it looks spooky but probably just needs fixed up and reclaimed by the Lord Jesus Christ!

On February 2,2009 this church was on the A&E show Paranormal State. There is something in that church. When my daughter was about 13 or 14 her and her friends would break into the church until the cops were called and they had to stop going. That church is really haunted. About 8 to 10 years ago there used to be a house that was connected to it. I knew the people that lived in the house at the time.

Ok to the person who thinks this place is in little russia, u couldnt be more wrong. Yes this place has damned souls and yes it is haunted but before you want to go talking about it, make sure you study your facts. The church is located in central topeka and it isnt abandoned. The family who now owns and plans on renovating it lives there. Hopefully the people from paranaormal state has fixed it so that they can finish what they have started. Its the church thats haunted not the area. I dont think that at this time they let anyone on the premisis until they finish the restoration on it because of the construction being done on it at this time.

I finally drove by the church the other day. I have been leary about doing it because a friend did & on 2 separate occasions, his car had problems.

Anyway, I took some pics of it & got them today. Pretty freaky. Especially the upside down crosses.

The upside-down crosses are just a feature of gothic revival architecture.

Nothing to do with the devil!

 

I have to disagree with you. An Upside-down cross is a mocking of our lord Jesus Christ, which is something Satan always does. Ask anyone from your local christian clergyman to even your local satanist. Another way of mocking our lord is satan's use of 3am. Jesus was said to be crusified at 3p which is why 3am is considered to be satan's hour. Jesus was said to have died at 33 years old on the third month of the year and to have risen on the 3rd day, so the number 3 in the bible comes up alot. Which is why the number 666 is said to also be the mark of the beast...A mockery of the number 3.

wow ppl can be so ignorant and think they know everything when they really dont know crap. Ive been in the church a few times nothing ever happened I think its all b s but I guess some ppl dont have a life so they dwell on unrealistic "haunted" churches. The crosed aint crossed at all that is just the design on the trim of the outside of the church duh anybody who has an iq higher than 2 could see that. lmao buh bye

Just drove by it today. Kids playing around it, looked like an old dilapidated building that was being renovated. Was just in Topeka and curious. No desire to go in as I don't mess with that stuff not knowing much about it. Could someone tell me if the activity that supposedly has gone on there has diminished since paranormal state visited? Central Kansas

Hello, I have driven by this church numerous time's and I am very interested in going inside the church. I love the paranormal and my friends and I have talked for along time about contacting the owners to see if we can get permission to tour the place. If the owner or owner's could send me an e-mail at rkwalter3@yahoo.com. I promise you that we are not a bunch of young kids, we are adults who are very interested in the paranormal!! Thank You for your consideration!!
