Event location is The Old Paulding County Jail, 112 South Williams Street, Paulding, Ohio, 45879
This is 2 of 4 of our Birthday Celebration Events this year!
This is a small intimate event. We did this event last year with great success and paranormal evidence. Reservations are EXTREAMLY limited and are on a first come first serve basis.
While there are several resident spirits that reside at The Old Paulding Jail, there is one, who makes his presence known every July 30th. The Spirit of Gary Murray.
Gary was found hanged in the first floor cell block July 30th, 1998 at approximately 7:20am. We have confirmed his death as well as obtained documentation. Through our research, we also found that the date of his death, was also the date of his birth. Gary has made his presence known each year since the date I purchased the Jail. We believe we have nailed down the actual time of his death. It seems as though Gary tries every year to get our attention and tell us a little bit more about what transpired on that tragic day. Some of the resident spirits have offered tidbits of information as well.
This year marks the 21st Anniversary of his Death / Birth date.
We spend a lot of time at The Old Paulding Jail, and quite honestly, we are on very good terms with the Spirits and they are much like family.
This year we want to do something special for Gary. We want to celebrate his birth and continue our communication and research into this tragic day with him, by not just dwelling on the sad event that took place, but by also having a small party for him and celebrating his Birthday.
Come Join us for this very amazing and special event. I am sure our resident Spirits will most likely be attending too!
