Join the hunt for spirits in Cape May this Saturday, Oct. 13
It is the time of the year when ghosts and other creatures that haunt us seem to come out of the woodwork. With Halloween approaching, there are plenty of ways to celebrate All Hallow’s Eve (check out the AC Weekly event tab for plenty of choices all month).
One prime example happens this Saturday at Cold Spring Village. If you want to see real ghost hunters in action, join the Ghost-One Paranormal Research Group on the night of Saturday, Oct. 13, from 7-10pm, to investigate the most supernaturally active buildings at Historic Cold Spring Village.
With nearly 30 years of experience in the ghost-hunting field, the Ghost-One team will lead guests through tests using digital photography and sound recording equipment in order to capture evidence of the supernatural.
The evening will begin in the Welcome Center with an introduction to the history of paranormal activity in the Village. Groups will then be escorted to each of five buildings where Ghost-One researchers will allow guests to assist with the investigations. The buildings that will be explored for paranormal activity are Cox Hall Cottage (c. 1691), the Spicer Leaming House (c. 1817), the Dennisville Inn (c. 1836), the Corson-Hand House (1837), and the Marshallville School (c. 1850).
After visiting each building, guests will return to the Welcome Center to discuss their findings over dessert. Tickets are $30 each and must be purchased in advance. Visit www.hcsv.org/events/ghost or call 898-2300, ext. 10 to purchase tickets. Only a limited number of tickets are available Proceeds from the event support the HCSV Education Program. Cold Springs Village is located at 720 Rt. 9 South, Cape May.
Historic Cold Spring Village is a non-profit, open air living history museum that portrays the daily life of a rural South Jersey community of the Early American era. Its mission includes the preservation of 26 historic Cape May County buildings, history education and promoting heritage tourism.
Staff members of a little town in Cape May have reported several paranormal events that have left their hair standing on end. Perhaps it’s not a coincidence that the town is called Cold Springs.
If you’re looking for a frightfully good time this weekend, there are plenty of Halloween themed events going on right now, plus many more taking place later this month.
" I respect the skeptics. I just ask that they respect what I do and come and have the experience before you actually judge me. Not everybody needs closure. Not everybody has unresolved issues. Everyone’s messages are different. But when you witness a reading, spirit talks about such specific details."
This writer is in the minority in calling the film a reasonably entertaining, but not all-that-exciting, recreation of this joint Canadian-CIA operation that wasn’t declassified until 1997.
According to a local legend, a young girl inhabits the top floor of the inn, and guests have reported hearing the sounds of a ball bouncing in the upper floor.
