ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. -- A group of investigators with N.C. Paranormal Research Society will be conducting an investigation at the Museum of the Albemarle Saturday evening, Sept. 21. The research team has gained local attention for its video footage of a door at the Camden County jail that mysteriously closes.
Mark Anderson with N.C. Paranormal Research contacted the museum after learning about stories of reported paranormal activities in and around it. Regional Museum Director Bill McCrea met with Anderson and later with the museum staff to learn more about the reported sightings.
"Many buildings in North Carolina have been studied for paranormal activity, including the historic State Capitol in Raleigh." said McCrea. "It might be interesting to see if there is any evidence to support local lore," he added.
With security provided by an off-duty security guard and a museum staff member, the team will use a variety of techniques to see if any paranormal activity can be recorded. In additional to digital cameras, the team will use digital voice recorders and electromagnetic field recorders.
Anderson is looking forward to the evening of field work. "We appreciate the opportunity to record at the museum and hope we can add to the body of evidence on paranormal activity," he said.
The Museum of the Albemarle is part of the Division of State History Museums, within the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources.
