Interested in ghost hunting? Like learning about the supernatural? Join the Ghost-One Paranormal Research Group on the night of Sat., Oct. 13, from 7 – 10 p.m., to investigate the most supernaturally active buildings in Historic Cold Spring Village. With nearly thirty 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 (609) 898-2300, ext. 10 to purchase tickets. Only a limited number of tickets are available! Please B.Y.O.F. (bring your own flashlight) for this night of fright! Proceeds from the event support the HCSV Education Program.
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. The Village is a museum for all seasons. During the summer months, interpreters and artisans in period clothing preserve the trades, crafts and heritage of “the age of homespun.” From Oct. to May, the emphasis is on teaching history through school trips to the Village, classroom visits by the education department and interactive teleconferences with schools throughout the United States.
The Country Store is open weekends throughout the fall for holiday shopping. The Village Nature Trail at Bradner’s Run is open to the public for free self-guided tours.
The Village is located on Route 9, three miles north of Victorian Cape May and a mile and a half west of the southern end of the Garden State Parkway.
