At a recent meeting of the board of Thurmont Historical Society, members watched as a sticker went flying off their meeting table and across the room, although there was no breeze in the room.
“If I hadn’t seen it for myself, I wouldn’t have believed it,” said board member Robert Eyler.
It’s not the first time something odd like that has happened in the Creeger House. People have felt unseen touches and heard unusual noises for years. At least two people have died on the property, including a servant whose dress caught fire in the kitchen and she burned to death in the back yard.
Now you can find out for yourself if the Creeger House is haunted. The Thurmont Historical Society will be hosting the Gettysburg Ghost Gals, an all-female paranormal investigation team on October 28, 2016. The group has more than twenty years combined experience in paranormal studies and has been featured in a number of magazines and on television shows.
On October 28, they will bring their state-of-the-art equipment, healthy skepticism, and keen investigative skills into the Creeger House, where they will search for signs of paranormal activity from 8:00 p.m. to midnight.
The Thurmont Historical Society will also be holding a contest to see if you can be a part of the investigation. Simply call 240-288-8418 and leave your name and phone number. Two winners will be chosen at random from the list of names to be guests of the Thurmont Historical Society. Each winner can also bring along a guest. However, you must be at least eighteen years old to participate in this investigation.
So, what do you think: Is the Creeger House haunted? Well, now you know who to call…and it ain’t the Ghostbusters!
