Nowadays it seems that every channel you turn on the TV has some sort of ghost show being featured, doesn't it? Some of them feature human experiences and others may be animals that have had these types of paranormal experiences. Overall, some of those programs just really fascinate me. I have seen a few that had Lehigh Valley venues featured which really got me thinking, so I decided to take a step back and really dig into what there is here. I found that there are over 80 locations that have either documented proof of a spirit, or a horrific story behind the location, such as an Indian massacre.
This piqued my curiosity that there were so many stories so I decided to check one of them out for myself. The Sun Inn in Historic Downtown Bethlehem was featured on one of the shows I had watched so I thought this would be a great location to start my own investigation.
I was connected with a local paranormal group called P.H.E.A.R. (Paranormal Help Experiment and Activity Research). This group will investigate pretty much anything if you ask them. They are very eager and knowledgeable, and VERY into the paranormal. So, one Saturday night, they took a few people from my office on an actual investigation where we got to use our own devices to try to monitor activity. A few of us brought digital voice recorders, video cameras, regular cameras and we even had night vision goggles. We ventured into four areas of The Sun Inn and asked the spirits plenty of questions. Here's a sampling of some of our recordings, listen carefully:
The Sun Inn is open to the public and also does special dates where anyone can go and do an investigation with an actual paranormal team. They even have overnight investigations! I'm thinking I may have to go back and check that out.
So, what do you think? Do you believe?
