Beginning and advanced ghost hunters will have the opportunity to find out about the “spirits” thought to haunt the Butler County Historical Society’s complex at 327 North 2nd Street, Hamilton. Two special sessions are scheduled for October 28, one at 6:30 p.m. and one at 9 p.m. Each session and tour will introduce participants with the “spirits” believed to inhabit the Benninghofen House and society research center. There will be time for the not so faint-at-heart to conduct their own investigations.
Tickets for the sessions are limited and cost $25 per person, paid in advance. When making reservations, participants should indicate which of the tours they wish to attend. All ghost hunters are encouraged to bring any ghost hunting equipment they may have and the BCHS will have a number of divining rods on hand for people to use during the evening.
