We will investigate the spirits that linger near the Oldest Wooden School House on St. George Street with exclusive access to both the gardens and the School House itself.
This building is documented on tax rolls since 1716 and was bought by Juan Genopoly in 1780. Genopoly was an indentured person who came to the Turnbull Plantation to grow and process indigo. He became a merchant and his family lived in the building. In 1788 the school was started with teaching both boys and girls. The last graduating class is believed to have ended in 1864.

Come and explore the grounds carefully, using all of the tools paranormal investigators use. You can bring your own or select one from our assortment of tools available. Make sure you bring your camera and take photos!

We are determined to solve why those who have departed this life refuse to leave the area! This is a real paranormal experience. There are no jump scares, it isn't a haunted house type attraction.

Snapped a picture of my husband and I before we started the tour. School house has a dark presence. Almost as soon as I walked in I couldn't breathe. I had to walk out and catch my breath.

Our "guide" definitely went above and beyond for us with a lot of extras thrown in! He showed us how to do it ourselves with some history thrown in. You get a chance to work by yourselves or as a group, you create the experience. A must do attraction while in town!

I would definitely recommend this encounter to everyone. It was well worth it! Our guide, Matt, went above and beyond and was very knowledgeable. We got more than we expected and it was fantastic. This was a very unique experience getting to use actual tools used to ghost hunt. We will definitely be going back.-hitchhiking ghosts

It was a fun tour. Went with my teenage kids. Some were believers and some were not but everyone enjoyed it.

Had a great time learning about the paranormal equipment and how to capture evidence. Then we got to use their spirit boxes, dousing rods, and many other paranormal decices! One girl captured this image of a face. I got a clear as day voice over the spirit box saying, "who are these people?" Very cool experience
