What’s The MOST Haunted Place in Mid-Columbia?
If you go by which place has actually been featured in a national TV show, and looked at by paranormal investigators, it would have to be in Prosser.
While many in the Mid-Columbia claim to know of a spot that they say is "haunted," by far the MOST believable would be the St. Matthews Episcopal Church.
The popular SyFy TV Show Ghosthunters actually set up and did a full investigation of the church in season 3, it was episode 16, in a segment called Houses Of the Holy.
The website hauntedplaces.org has included a listing for the building, located at 323 7th. Street in Prosser. A series of unexplained phenomenon were investigated by the team, and while they didn't officially give it a haunted or not haunted rating, they did experience things they couldn't explain and felt it merited further investigation.
A mysterious footprint, cold air and strange atmospheric happenings, plus whispers and strange sounds from a closet that were recorded prompted the team to definitely decide the church and surrounding grounds were worth a future visit.
The team hasn't been back since, but the Prosser site is the only one in our area that's actually been visited by a paranormal team such as this, and featured on a national TV show. So, you could say that makes it "the most" haunted place in the Mid-Columbia.
