The Northern Alliance Of Paranormal Investigators hit pay dirt during their first investigation, bringing sensitive investigators that our entities warmed up to! They gathered at least 5 EVPs, and had personal experiences as well. Cheri commented in her report, “It is a very warm and welcoming building. A great place to have a brush with the paranormal in a friendly manner. It didn’t take long for them to become curious and make themselves known.”

“During my visit and investigation of the Brumder Mansion, I had my own set of experiences… While setting up to perform an EVP session in the basement, a quick wispy blob of white mist shot past my face! It was big and fast and gone before I knew it. Also in this area, I was exploring a back room where a tunnel may have once provided a safe escape for Mr. Picks and company. In one of the back corners, I clearly heard the sound of a chair or other object moving. When I moved forward to investigate, a large shadow mass shot away from me.”

“Despite the paranormal activity in the premises, everything is of a benevolent nature and you won’t regret visiting with Susan and George, Jr.!”

ABOUT THE BRUMDER

Located at 3046 West Wisconsin Avenue, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin sits this grand, 4 story, almost 8,000 square feet, 1910 red-bricked Victorian / Gothic / English Arts and Crafts style mansion which surely makes a glorious bed and breakfast. The house has been restored to its former glory. The first floor has all the rooms deemed necessary for a 1910 upper class family, including a parlor, living room, foyer, dining room, ballroom, library, large kitchen etc. The crown jewel in the dining room is the stunning, handcrafted stained glass tile fireplace, designed by Neideken; an interior designer who worked with Frank Lloyd Wright.

The main massive Gothic oak staircase takes the visitor up to the second floor and landing, which has 3 bedrooms/suites. Another staircase found on the second floor leads up to what was the servants quarters on the third floor which has 3 rooms and the innkeeper’s apartment. There are a total of six guest bed rooms which are used for visitors to the Brumder Bed and Breakfast.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS

Restoration of a building to its original state, in combination with the influx of antique furniture and items, which once belonged to other folks, often greatly increases paranormal activity. The first known paranormal experiences were reported by Carol Hirschi, the previous owner of the Brumder. Because there are no reports of spirit activity in the Brumder before Carol Hirschi bought the mansion, one can theorize that the spirits here are probably attached to some of the antiques and items found in the mansion. Sometimes, people are so attached to their belongings, that they don’t wish to leave them to go to the other side.

The Gold Suite

Susan/Aunt Pussy was mostly quiet in the first part of 2008, perhaps studying the new folks involved with the Brumder Mansion. It seems that this entity is still willing to be a good sport and go with the flow, as long as dogs are kept out of The Gold Suite, and light comes in through the windows. As we don’t have any pets or dogs in the Brumder Mansion, she has been relatively happy, but still had some issues with the decor.

2008 – When the curtains were taken down for a few days before the new curtains were hung, in The Gold Suite, it is thought that she was the entity who locked the dead bolt of the door from the inside, leading from the mud room into the entry way, locking out some guests, who had to call the Innkeeper to let them inside.

After a German marriage certificate in a large frame with a sturdy wire on the back was hung on the wall by Emma’s room, it mysteriously lifted itself off the wall and crashed face down onto the floor, cracking the glass a little when no one living was around. There was nothing wrong with the wire, or the nails it was hung upon.
