Experience the late night life at the Wm. Phelps General Store and home as well as the 23 room Palmyra Historical Museum for the other side of history. Those unspoken and unseen, yet always very apparent in every room, will thrill you with a sudden whisper, foot step, or touch. Join the number of groups that have experienced the strange noises, apparitions, caught photographs, and chased ghostly cats only to find nothing is there.
We have been visited by Ghost Detectives, Haunted Explorations, My Ghost Story, Pittsburgh Paranormal, Roc City Paranormal, PBI, SPI, Beyond Ghosts, Crossroads, G.H.O.S.T., Salt City Paranormal, Ghost Seekers, New York Paranormal and Scientific Paranormal Investigations, Soul Searchers, WNY Paranormal, P.I.T. Crew, GOWNY, Elmira Paranormal, and Rochester Phantom Hunters.

Scheduling a Hunt
Ghost hunts can be scheduled year-round and are private to your group (unless you choose otherwise).
We charge $30 per person for a 4 hr hunt with a minimum of 6 people or the equivalent cost.
We charge $40 per person for a 6 hr hunt from 6 pm - 12 am or 7 pm - 1 am and $45 per person for a 6 hr hunt from 8 pm - 2 am with a minimum of 5 people or the equivalent cost.
Hunts can be tailored to your group and experience level. Groups are accompanied by a guide who can share stories, photos, and EVPs or keep the history secret only to verify your findings. Bring some snacks or lunches for your group and our central meeting area will serve as the base for your group and resting spot.
We also host birthday parties and special events. Groups of 20 or more, may negotiate a discounted price. Gift certificates are also available!
Please call (315) 597-6981 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for information and scheduling. If you would like history on our locations, feel free to call our office or send us an email.
We consistently maintain 5 stars on all of our Travelocity pages.
