History: This location has a tie to another old Austin landmark, The Paggi House. The Paggi House is currently being remodeled, but previously was a great place to grab a steak. It's one of Austin's oldest homesteads, located at near South Lamar and W Riverside. It was the residence of Michael Paggi, who was an entreprenuer in the late 1800's. David Grimes' photography studio, The Hideout, was Paggi's office and blacksmith shop. Below is an excerpt from Eli Korris' article in the Ausitn Chronicle on spending the night at the Grimes studio in the late nineties. The full article can be found here.
There are a number of stories and articles surrounding the history of this building. Please
visit the links on this page to learn more. The most shocking story is David's eyewitness account of watching a pint glass split in two. I'll post a picture shortly.

Case Notes: CBS' KEYE news reporter asked to accompany us on our investigation. Unfortunately our story never aired. Having other cameras and people there we are not used to working was a bit challenging. It was exciting to be a part of, but also a bit of an imposition. There was more noise polution then I would have liked. When conducting EVP work, its imperative to have a controlled environment. Minimal walking, talking etc.
