October Activities: Join Empirical Paranormal and Phelps Mansion for a Ghost Hunting Museum Tour | WIVT
BINGHAMTON, NY – Are you afraid of ghosts?
With the start of October and the Halloween season just days away, a local group of ghost hunters invite you to join them as they investigate one of Binghamton’s notorious haunted locations.
The Phelps Mansion on Court Street was once home to the wealthy Phelps family in the 1880s and lived in the house for 12 years.
They all died four years apart, the first in 1878 and the last in 1882.
Legend has it that some members are not quite gone yet, although it is not known who is sticking around.
The guests experienced things on the tours, according to house manager Joe Schuerch, who promises not to disturb the spirits too much.
“It’s October, let’s have fun, we won’t mess around too much, just a little bit and we’ve got what we’ve got.”
The investigation will be conducted by Empirical Paranormal on Saturday October 2.
There are 3 ghost hunting tours scheduled, one at 7, one at 8, and one at 9. Tours are limited to 10 people and the cost is $ 20, which Empirical will donate directly to the Phelps.
Empirical Paranormal Director Gina Caprari says they expect to find activity, but you’ll have to come and find out.
Tours are about to sell out, but you can call the Phelps Museum at 607-722-4873 to check availability.
If you don’t get a spot on this tour, Empirical Paranormal will also be hosting a fact-finding tour to the YWCA in Binghamton on October 15th.
The Phelps will also be hosting more spooky events in October, including their own ghost tours.
