Oct 12-13, 2013: Ghost Expedition at Brunswick Heritage Museum


The Brunswick Heritage Museum celebrates the town’s legacy as a major rail hub for the historic Baltimore and Ohio (B&O) Railroad. Brunswick was once home to the world’s largest rail yard upon its completion in 1907.


The museum is located in a building dating to 1904 and that once housed the Improved Order of Red Men, a drinking society whose origins trace to the secret patriotic societies before the American Revolution.


For many decades the building was owned by another community-oriented secret society called the Fraternal Order of Eagles.


According to various accounts, reports of haunted activity include:


A woman in a white dress seen walking around the second floor.


Instances of strange noises (footsteps/voices) and object displacement.


Paranormal investigators recorded a sentence-length EVP “Have a Nice Day“, and “Smith”, a possible reference to the late physician Dr. JGF Smith.


NOTE: Expeditions are not public events and are not open to the general public.

May 25-26, 2013: Ghost Expedition at Cockey’s Tavern, Westminster MD


Situated along Falls Turnpike Road, Cockey’s Tavern operated as a hostelry, store and tavern at least up until 1877. The oldest portion of the building dates to circa 1830′s when the building had enlarged beyond a simple log stucture. A thid floor was added to the structure around 1905.


During the Civil War, the building may have served as a temporary headquarters for the Confederate general J.E.B. Stuart before joining the Battle of Gettysburg.


The building is believed to be haunted by the ghost of a confederate soldier whose bootsteps are heard on the center stairwell. Paranormal investigators have witnessed these sounds and the shutting of a door. The ghost may have a penchant for redecorating and has reportedly displaced several paintings.


UPDATE: The expedition concluded successfully on the morning of May 26 2013. Equipment worked well in the field; all expedition objectives were met.


Collection amounted to 20 hours of video, 20 hours of audio and 15 hours of sensor data from data acquisition sensors.


Preliminary findings were provided to the Historical Society of Carroll County.


The findings may have provided potential indications on the identity of Civil War soldier (“Take Them to Private Gruber”).


There were several instances of high quality audio to include (“There’s Your Man”) and (“If You Move The Camera”).

Oct 13-14, 2012: Ghost Hunt/Expedition at Historic Savage Mill


Savage Mill operated as a working textile mill from 1822 to 1947. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the mill now houses a complex of restaurants, antique and craft shops, artists-in-residence, and high-tech professional services.


The ghost expedition will primarily focus on the oldest structures, the Carding and Spinning buildings which date to 1822.


Savage Mill is believed to be haunted by the spirits of former workers, and their children who met their unfortunate deaths there. Paranormal activity has been reported in the Carding Tower and Paymaster’s Office.


The SpiritGals paranormal team captured an EVP at Historic Savage Mill containing footsteps and a female child plaintively crying “Ma, Please Come Home…”


The expedition will experiment with low-footprint technologies encompassing: data acquisition/tagging, RF spectrum analysis, and four-channel audio/sound stage(s).


UPDATE: The expedition concluded successfully on the morning of Oct 14 2012. Most equipment worked well in the field; however, sound stages lost power at times.


Collection amounted to 32 hours of video, 24 hours of audio and 8 hours of sensor data from data acquisition sensors.


Preliminary findings were presented before the Savage Historical Society on November 19, 2012.


The findings indicated support for the haunting legend of Rebecca King (“Rebecca”) and (“Go Find Ms. King”).
