On two separate weekends, October 5-6 and again on October 26-27, the park invites those who are not ‘faint of heart’ to a late night paranormal investigation lead by the Tri-State Shadow Chasers. Areas to be investigated include Big Bone Methodist Church which was built in 1888, the Baker cemetery, and the general park grounds.
Participants in this Ghost Hunt will learn techniques of ghost hunting and have a chance to become familiar with some commonly used equipment during a live investigation. During this outing, visitors will also learn about the history of this famous location.
This event runs from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. and costs $20.00 per person; participants are encouraged to bring a digital camera. Preregistration is required.
On October 24, the park staff will lead a walk to the historic, and some say haunted, Big Bone Methodist Church from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Participants in this Ghosts of Big Bone event will hear stories of Big Bone’s past and learn of the paranormal evidence previously recorded.
Tickets for Ghosts of Big Bone are $5.00 per person with all proceeds benefitting the Friends of Big Bone. Preregistration is required and parental guidance is recommended.
