This extravagant home, which was owned by Annie and David Houston, has been long had reports of unexplained activities. In one of the east bedrooms on the second floor many guests have reported seeing an indentation in the bed in the shape of a human figure. On multiple occasions staff have remade the bed and will come back a few hours later to the same indentation in the mattress. After further investigating staff were unable to find a reasonable cause for this incident.
In the same bedroom a rocking horse sits on the floor. After wrapping up an interview with a local news station, the rocking horse was seen moving. All four people (2 Bonanzaville staff members and 2 news crew members) in the room had witnessed this event and spent the next few minutes trying to debunk the movement. As they moved around the room they would jump to see if the rocking horse would move again with no success. They were unable to pinpoint what would have caused the horse to rock.
In between news segments, the staff was showing the newscrew how to use a Spirit Box when a not very nice word came through. Staff and the newscrew were shocked, as this word is not one that would be heard on the radio. Two minutes later, the word came through a final time before all activity stopped.
Finally, on one of the Ghost Tour nights in October, a visitor claiming to be a medium claimed that the spirit of Annie Houston was still in the home and was displeased by all the visitors coming through so late at night.
