Take your seat at the table in the tavern, bumping elbows with the Glengarry Pioneer Museum’s less visible guests of the past on Saturday, October 26, 2019. Small groups will be guided in their own ghostly investigation of the Star Inn and the Trapper’s Cabin, led by members of Bytown Paranormal. Prepare yourself to record energy variations, audio data and perhaps hear and see the evidence of where our world collides with the next. People have believed in and sought out evidence of the world beyond ours for centuries. Warm yourself at our bonfire whilst being chilled by ghostly stories. Explore the Victorian obsession with spiritualism that included séances to speak to those passed into that next world. Take a step onto the bridge between worlds with the help of a psychic sensitive!
The Glengarry Pioneer Museum is about the people who forged their homes in Glengarry, hauling logs, raising children and planting fields. Do their lives continue in another realm, daily activities impressed upon the timbers and possessions they worked so hard to acquire and maintain? Are the material goods we preserve only one aspect of our forebears or is there evidence that they reach out to us personally still? For decades, there have been numerous accounts of paranormal activity at the museum by both staff and visitors. The historical buildings have been occupied by families, shop keepers, farmers, blacksmiths, children, teachers, and more since the early 1800’s and beyond. How many of them remain and seek to let us know they are here with us?
Bytown Paranormal uses infrared & electromagnetic field detecting equipment, outstanding observational skills and most of all, years of experience to investigate behind that mysterious veil to identify the voices of the past. Museums, jails, private homes and historic institutions have sought their assistance to identify what baffles, frightens and confuses so many. On October 26, 2019, Bytown investigators will take small groups through the darkness into the Star Inn, one of the oldest taverns in Ontario and across the grounds to the trapper’s cabin, a family home since the early 1800’s, both rumoured to be actively haunted. A gifted psychic sensitive will attempt to put our guests in touch with the people whose essences remained behind. Expect the eerie, the profound and the curious, when worlds collide at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum.
Baked goods and Eerie Arts will also be available for sale in the Orange Lodge.
