These mini ghost hunts are perfect for those who want to see what paranormal activity is all about at an affordable price. Maybe you have just wondered what it's like to be on an actual ghost hunt in a very haunted location under safe circumstances as there is no evil entities in our building and guided by experienced paranormal investigators.

We have equipment set up in each hotspot to ensure the best possible chances of you experiencing our resident ghosts here at the haunted old Paulding County jail. You may take photographs and voice recordings during your hunt, maybe you will catch some paranormal activity to take home with you.

2). The second floor cellblock.
3). The third floor Sheriff's living quarters.
Our resident ghosts that can be experienced in each of the hotspots are as follows:
1). In the dungeon tunnels in the basement, you may experience paranormal activity from Nancy Eagleson, who communicates quite often in the dungeon tunnels. She was a young 14-year-old girl who was murdered back in 1960. Her murder case has remained unsolved to this day. She has been photographed in this area. You may also experience paranormal activity from a man by the name of Frank Tracy who was a murder victim a few short years back in an apartment complex across the alley from the jail. He visits frequently and communicates with us.
2). In the second floor cellblock area you may experience paranormal activity from a jailer by the name of Gus, he visits frequently and performs his rounds throughout the cellblock. You may experience him whistling, jingling his keys, hearing his footsteps as well as disembodied voices. You may also experience paranormal activity from a man by the name of Steve who is accompanied by his young son Matt. They often communicate with us through EVP sessions.
3). In the third floor Sheriff's living quarters you may experience paranormal activity from Sheriff John Keeler himself. He has been seen in this area and quite frequently he speaks with us directly and through EVP sessions. You may hear him walking around on the hardwood floors. You may also experience paranormal activity from a young 10-year-old girl by the name of Audrey. She likes lights and toys, she has been photographed, and she communicates with us through EVP.
There are other resident ghosts in the building, we have just named the main ones that we experience paranormal activity with on a frequent and sometimes daily basis while we are in the building. There are others that visit the building and you may experience communications from them as well.
The groups in each hotspot location will be small, no more then 10 per group per timeslot. This will ensure your best possible experience.
Each ticket is only $6.00 per timeslot location.
You may purchase more than one location but please keep in mind they have to be on different time slots. For example: you want to experience all three locations, so you choose 8 PM in the dungeon location, 8:30 PM in the cellblock location and 9 PM in the third floor location.

While the old Paulding County jail is a very haunted location, we have no control over the resident ghosts or any ghosts who visit the jail. That being said, ghost hunting is much like fishing, you never know what you're going to get. While the jail is a very active location, we cannot guarantee that you will experience any paranormal activity, however, we will have all the conditions set properly for the best possible chances of experiencing paranormal activity.
