It’s the busy season at the Dr Pepper Museum and several of you have asked questions about our Spooky Spots that you see in the museum. Because of that, I’m reposting an article that appeared about a year on our blog! Are you ready for some spine tingling fun?
Double, double, toil and trouble, Alderton stirred and Lazenby added the bubbles. Do the spirits of Dr Pepper’s creators tread the floors of the Dr Pepper Museum in Waco? Located at the corner of Fifth Street and Mary Avenue in the turn of the century industrial district, the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company was designed by Waco architect Milton Scott and built in 1906. Now, more that 100 years later, the building that survived the 1953 Waco Tornado and was resurrected after more than twenty years of vacancy to become the Dr Pepper Museum has been certified as haunted by the investigators of McLennan County Paranormal.
June 4th, 2009 was a suspenseful evening as the staff of the Dr Pepper Museum sat down with Mike and Cindy Jacobus, founders of McLennan County Paranormal Investigations, as they revealed the evidence that led them to certify the Museum as a haunted location.
Many bumps, breathless voices, knocks, and even a few vaporous orbs were documented using the state-of-the-art equipment McLennan County Paranormal Investigations set up throughout the Museum.
The most impressive piece of audio evidence the team revealed was a female voice that could clearly be heard saying “Here’s the train…” as the actual train passed by on Jackson Street. The night vision camera that was set up looking down the front staircase recorded two light orbs fly by, one right after the other. There were many other recorded instances, but those two episodes were the strongest.
