What’s That Going Bump In The Night? - October 30, 2016

What’s That Going Bump In The Night?
Learn the haunting answers from paranormal expert Gordon Ward at Durand-Hedden
Sunday, October 30, 2016

What is the real story on ghosts? The answer isn’t in Gothic novels, Hollywood movies, or on TV.

Bedminster author and paranormal investigator Gordon Ward believes he knows. He specializes in finding – and communicating with – beings on “the other side.” Survival of the human personality is a popular topic supported by mounting evidence. The word “ghost” is really an umbrella term that defines many types of paranormal phenomena such as apparitions and poltergeists.

At 2:00 pm on Sunday, October 30, Gordon Ward will present “Ghosts: what they are and how to investigate them.” He will explain his views on ghosts, share his experiences investigating haunted locations, including a home in Maplewood, show evidence including audio clips and photographs, and teach attendees how to conduct their own sound investigations without costly equipment. Questions are welcome.

Gordon Ward is also a songwriter and performer and will be co-starring in a new television series about ghosts targeted to air in 2017.

Also on October 30, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. visitors can catch the exhibit, "From Farm to Suburb: The Birth of College Hill," which explores the evolution of a section of Maplewood from a dairy farm to a popular neighborhood of 300 houses. Out in the carriage house the Country Store will be selling historic-themed treasures: early American children’s games, books and toys, facsimile documents, quill pens and ink, historic cook books, cookie molds, tin lanterns, reproduction decorative ceramics, vintage photos, hiking sticks and more. The hard-to-find original Doors of Maplewood poster and Smile, the history of Olympic Park, the new acid-free reproduction of the charming 1931 map of Maplewood, local honey, and Original 1910 Chocolate Fudge Sauce will also be available. Open Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 - 5:00 pm.
