Members of the Grey Team for Paranormal Investigations of Historic America
will investigate the potential phenomenon tonight, starting at 8, at the Pearson House Museum in Stanwood.
Early Sunday morning, they will hook up their cameras, monitors and listening devices at the 120-year-old Stanwood Hotel and Saloon.
Both locations have a history of paranormal activity, says Vaughn Hubbard, PIHA case manager and historian.
Hubbard says the group travels the state doing investigations. They aim to check out buildings and encourage folks to visit historical sites and museums.
“This is about much more than us looking for ghosts,” Hubbard says. “It’s about the history of our great state and the museums and historical sites that are trying to preserve it.”
He said it behooves families to learn about our ancestors and how they lived.
“I believe that for every piece of history we lose, we lose a piece of ourselves,” Vaughn says.
Perhaps folks would rather there weren’t ghosts at the Stanwood Hotel and Saloon. The hotel upstairs is being remodeled and should reopen early next year.
