Halloween

Ghost Hunting in Michigan

Haunt your way down to the Carnegie Branch for a special presentation about Ghost Hunting in Michigan!

Presenters from the South East Michigan Ghost Hunters Society will share their experiences as ghost hunters. Included points of discussion are stories, photographs, and EVP recordings from past hunts. The Society representatives will answer questions following the presentation’s conclusion. Participants of this program will be able to escape the ordinary as they learn about paranormal investigations and the techniques used in documenting explained phenomena.

The South East Michigan Ghost Hunters Society has been active for 22 years and have conducted hundreds of investigations in Michigan. The group has been featured on the History Channel’s TV series, “A Haunting.” Brad Mikulka, the director, has written 3 books about their investigations.
