A book has been published detailing the history and events of Trivette Clinic

For many years, Doug Galliher and Tim Trevitt have wanted to make sure that the stories of the old Trevitt Clinic, which opened just over 90 years ago, live on long after they were told. For a while, Galliher thought he would have to transfer these stories to the pages of the book himself.

“People kept saying that if anything happened to you, history would be gone,” he said.

In 2017, Galliher received an email from a paranormal investigator that would eventually provide the clinic with an accurate historical account not only of the recorded history of the building and its residents, but also of its spiritual history and residents who may still be hanging out. long ages.

On October 8, Galliher, Trivette, and several reported ghost residents welcomed paranormal researcher and author Alex Matsu to the clinic to host a book signing for their latest issue, “The Hamptonville Hauntings: Ghosts of the Trivette Clinic.”

Matsuo first visited the clinic in April 2018, where he toured the building with a group of about 20 other people, going from room to room trying to get a feel for the nearly century-old brick building. This will be the first of more than 15 visits to Trivette Clinic in four years.

“I feel like I’ve become a soulmate here over the past few years,” Matsuo said. “We’ve become familiar with each other and this has led to the activity we’re testing becoming very consistent.”

According to the stories, there are many spirits inhabiting the old clinic, some prefer to stay in the upstairs rooms while others can communicate in the basement. During her many visits, Matsu and her team have come into contact with many of them, whether through physical interaction, capturing strange sounds in audio recordings, or through photographs.

But through it all, Matsu claims that the spirits at Trivette Clinic are among the happiest she’s encountered in her investigations.

“They seem happy and relieved to be here,” she said. “There are so many places I visit that they come across as being tortured, but that’s not the case here.”

The book has already received praise from the Harmony community that few have even previewed it before its release.

“Gaining community acceptance has always been a concern for me,” Matsu said. “But so far, all the locals here have been very receptive to the book and a lot of them have reached out to me and said they liked the book.”

Finishing the book is also exciting for Galliher and Trivette because not only do they have to worry about the clinic’s history fading out over time, they also have the opportunity to tell their stories to the author over the years while she was able to get the full Trivette Clinic experience.

“It’s very exciting to have this book,” Galliher said. “And for Alex to write that, someone who is a friend and can give him a personal touch, is something we love.

“We also love that this helps showcase the clinic, not just with ghost stories, but through the building’s history,” he continued. “There will always be something to look back on now.”

Matsu’s book “The Hamptonville Hauntings: Ghosts of the Trivette Clinic” is available on Amazon or at the clinic itself.

Trivette Clinic ghost tours are offered on all remaining weekends in October, in addition to Halloween night. For more information, visit their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100064616444992.
