Dakota Lawrence is a gifted Clairvoyant Medium and Psychic Paranormal Investigator from Shreveport Louisiana. Although he believes in the paranormal, he keeps a skeptic stance on it as well. Dakota has a history of incredibly gifted psychics in his family and at the very early age of 12, he knew that he was gifted himself and he even began doing readings for others. He embraces his Native American family heritage and with every reading, he respectfully approaches his native ancestors and asks for assistance and guidance. When Dakota was 15 years old, he had a life changing moment in that he realized that not everyone had the gift that he and his family has. Even though he had been doing readings since age 12, he decided that at age 15 to begin doing his readings professionally and he consistently receives praises from his clients. He attributes his gifts and talents to God and serves his clients with the utmost respect. Dakota has been guiding people on matters from life questions, to lost loved ones and missing person cases. His up-beat personality and Southern Style has made him one of the most recognized readers within the Paranormal and Metaphysical community. Dakota’s style, unlike most psychics, is straight forward and honest as he explains everything to you in ways you can understand. He believes that honesty is the best policy and a little bit of edginess never hurt either. Each reading with Dakota is a truly unique experience. His readings are what he calls a “soul level” reading which helps the client understand what is going on in their life and what is going on around them, which in turn, will help them improve their own lives and personal enlightenment. Seen on Children of the Grave 2 SPOOKED TV as seen on SyFy Chiller & NBC .

HOTEL MARSHALL

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hotel was built in 1930  and checked in its last guests in the late 1970s. The hotel was one of the major attractions in East Texas in the mid 20th century: complete with an elaborate red carpet, bellhops, valets, and a shoeshine stand in the basement. The building was the center of the city's social scene during the late 1940s. The Rotarians, Kiwanis, and Lions Club met there every week with the day of the meeting on a rotating schedule. Many of the African American performers who entertained them were forced to ride the freight elevator rather than the main elevator to the Roof Garden. The patio was the site of many fashion shows.  The hotel was renovated in 2004 and only the first floor is used for events.  The hotel has never been investigated and many locals say there are spirits roaming its halls.

.HOTEL MARSHALL

 

 

The hotel was built in 1930 and checked in its last guests in the late 1970s.

OLD CITY HALL

 

 

Old City Hall was the site of Unknown Paranormal's public investigation last year.  The team gathered a lot of paranormal events on recordings as well as personal experiences!  Old City Hall contains a Theatre with a balcony and had a functioning city jail in the basement.  Both facilities were in operation at the sametime which is unusual to have a jail and a theatre in the same building!  Old City Hall has recently been undergoing renovations and should provide a great site for activity once again!
