Atherton Manor, or ‘Blood Manor’ as it is more affectionately known, is an estate located in the sleepy woods of rural Ohio. Originally owned by the affluent Atherton family, Atherton Manor was built 1892 as a homestead for his family. In 1900, the house was partially burned to the ground by its original owner Cain Atherton, after murdering his wife, sister in law and daughter leaving his youngest son, Edgar Atherton, the sole heir to the Atherton fortune.
At seventeen, Edgar left Ohio to travel the world, taking part in scholarly pursuits in archeology, theology and fine art. In 1909 he fell in love with the stunningly beautiful Eve Montgomery, and took her as his wife. A year later the couple returned to Ohio, taking residence in Edgar’s ancestral home. They were a picture perfect family with one exception; Atherton Manor is suspected to have claimed over three dozen victims including the Athertons and their two children.
Over the next twenty five years, the house continued to earn its reputation as Blood Manor, claiming over thirty three alleged victims. Of those thirty three, only a handful have been confirmed. The house has been investigated numerous times by various law enforcement and paranormal investigation organizations, throughout the years. At least once a decade a new crop of investigators pull the band aid off the old house to no avail or inconclusive or on many occasions suspect findings.
The fact that the FBI currently has 136 missing person reports associated with the Atherton homestead extending to the grounds surrounding the Manor, only continues to encourage superstition. It is important to note that most of these reports have been dismissed as complete urban legend. It is now up to you to discover for yourself and posterity, if Blood Manor is truly haunted or not.
Wallis Paranormal Investigations was founded in 1984 when it was known as the Wallis Paranormal Investigation Foundation. The WPIF started as a non-profit group of researchers, scientists and theologists, funded by Angel Investors who had brushes with the paranormal in their careers. Working from a mix of scientific and theological ideologies the group has investigated haunted areas all over the world. It’s next investigation, Atherton Manor.
