The Aldridge Mansion Museum was the location of the first ghost in the 2016 movie.


The Aldridge Mansion was built in the nineteenth century, and was one of the elegant homes in existence in that time period.

On the morning of October 25, 1894 Sir Aldridge woke up and was furious that his breakfast was not waiting for him. He called out for his servants, but none responded. He then found out that they had all been stabbed in their sleep by his eldest daughter Gertrude. The family avoiding humiliation locked her in the basement instead of calling out authorities. She lived in the basement til her death. A new owner years later discovered her remains. Ultimately the door was resealed shut by the owner after hear strange things had happened.

The tour guide, Garrett had ended a tour and was getting ready to go for the day, when all the sudden a noise came from the basement. Garrett ran to the entrance door to leave, but the door knob was red hot. He then ran to the drawing room and tried to launch a chair at a window, but the chair stopped in the air, then his him. He then ran and ended up down the basement. He noticed that the basement floor and walls were leaking a green goop. He then noticed that he got some on his hands. He tried to run back up the stairs, but the stairs collapsed and he found himself hanging for dear life. Then Gertrude revealed herself from the slime on the floor. Garrett screamed.

Erin, Abby, and Jillian inspected the location and after a bit, Erin noticed the basement door had opened. A moment later Gertrude hoovered out of the basement. Erin tried to communicate to her, but then she projected ectoplasm all over her.
