her secrets, and we who stand on the shore catch only an occasional glimpse.
White Swan Tavern Reveal
White Swan Tavern
231 High Street
In August the team had the chance to investigate the historic and lovely White Swan Tavern (Inn). A haunted inn built before the Revolutionary War was an unbelievable opportunity for the team. We didn't have a lot of personal experiences, I guess they were shy that night. However, the evidence kept pouring in. Apparently there was more happening behind the scenes than we ever expected. From objects moving, to ghostly footsteps, to voices recorded in empty rooms, the White Swan has proven to be a treasure trove of paranormal activity.
We returned during the Harry Potter Festival, in Chestertown to reveal our evidence. The second video is our public reveal at the White Swan.
Zombie Fest & Live Investigation
The group attended the Milton Theatre's 2018 Zombie Fest, and then returned to do our first public investigation at the Milton on Halloween. The team conducted sessions in the Green Room and Dressing Room on the second floor where phantom footsteps are often heard. In the theatre itself where lights turn on and off on their own, investigators and attendees watched in awe as EMF detectors detected anomalies. And several people reported hearing a growl near the stage area itself.
