Deering Estate presents ghost tours, paranormal investigations

The Deering Estate at Cutler, in partnership with the League of Paranormal Investigators, offers a variety of Ghost Tours and Paranormal Investigations.

Hear about the sightings and experiences from the actual paranormal investigations of the Deering Estate at Cutler and see for yourself the evidence recorded on video, photographs, and audio. There are three types of tours offered: Deering Estate “Spookover,” “Be Your Own Investigator” Ghost Tour and the “Voices of the Past” series.

Deering Estate “Spookover,” Saturday, Mar. 23, and Saturday, May 18, 11 p.m. to 4 a.m., $65 per person — Experience the Deering Estate at Cutler overnight when the lights are out. The League of paranormal investigators (LPI) will take guests on a Paranormal Investigation of the historic houses and main grounds. Equipment used to detect spectral presences such as pendulums, dowsing rods, EMF meters, voice recorders and cameras are welcome.

Participants now will be able to use KII meters — one of the most effective and interactive tools used for paranormal investigations. LPI will provide KII meters and guests can carry the handheld device throughout the property. Bright lights on the KII meter indicate that there is possible spirit energy nearby. The devices also are used during investigations to help ask and get answers instantly to “yes” or “no” questions when a spirit is believed to be present.

This is not a sleepover; guests will investigate and participate in activities all night. Dress comfortably. Bring your own flashlight, mosquito repellant and any equipment you wish to use. A light breakfast will be served. Tour may contain mature subject matter.
