First Christian Rialto Church Paranormal Investigation

Built in 1906 on the corner of riverside and second street, the first Christian church of Rialto, Ca apparently plays host to a number of restless spirits and even a "portal" where spirits can enter easily, at will!
The building is no longer used as a place of religious worship, it had since been occupied by the Rialto Historical society
Perhaps the most popular reported paranormal sighting is the one about Kristina Hendrickson. Her ashes were kept at the church following her death in 1967 from leukemia. Her father bought the church to prevent it from being demolished after sightings and accounts of her were reported.
John Anthony Adams, Historian of the Rialto Historical Society - is quoted "I have spent 20 years at the intensely haunted old church building that is now occupied by the Rialto Historical Society. I have a Ph.D. in soil science from the University of California at Riverside, did scientific research for years, always ridiculed any suggestions of the supernatural, and I was a life-long atheist until the foundations of my belief system were blasted to pieces by my experiences with ghosts. I never could have imagined in my wildest dreams that I would ever believe in something that seemed so ridiculous to me as ghosts. The stories began with the discovery of a very appealing little girl ghost whose ashes had been kept in the church. She was sent on her way after three very emotional seances, but other ghosts remain to haunt the church. Two different pairs of Rialto policemen have told me of encountering the ghost of a woman in a Victorian dress on two different occasions after answering a burglar alarm after midnight"................read on..............
John has subsequently written a book about his experiences in the church that is called "The Little Girl in the Window: A True Ghost Story." It was published in June 2008 and is available on Amazon.com. "My ghost book tells of scores of extraordinary ghostly encounters that I experienced along with other witnesses. I have recorded minutely detailed notes of every incident and I have written the book with the greatest care to describe exactly what happened. Some of the incidents are similar to those commonly described in ghost stories, such as the sound of footsteps without a visible person to make them, but other bizarre things have happened that I have never seen mentioned elsewhere. One example is a drinking glass that disappeared from beside my dinner plate only to instantly reappear from thin air several minutes later at the same spot where I had last seen it".
