Haunted House Trains Ghost Hunters
Monday, March 1, 2010 17:31 GMTHARPERS FERRY, W.Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Amateur ghost hunters can get real world training in one freaky home.
The Booth House is a haunted cottage in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, that belonged to the family of famed assassin John Wilkes Booth, though its uncertain if Abe Lincolns killer actually roams the halls.
On Saturday (Mar. 6), the spooky home will open its doors and become a paranormal museum and training facility for those who want to get into the ghostbusting business.
Owner Vince Wilson will be holding tours and workshops at the house every day on everything from recording Electronic Voice Phenomena to identifying types of ghosts.
Seances will also be held to make contact with the dead still present in the home.
Since the house has its fair share of paranormal activity, like phantom voices heard in empty rooms, footsteps, flickering lights, and luminescent figures appearing in the shadows, Wilson says its the perfect place to train new paranormal investigators.
