"Delmarva Historic Haunts is thrilled to have the opportunity to connect the past and present in Lewes, a town that continues to flourish in both. We use some of today's technology to try to answer questions about yesterday and tomorrow,” says Project Manager Wendy Robinson. Delmarva Historic Haunts has researched paranormal activity throughout the region at locations such as Gettysburg, Pa.; Fort Delaware; Fort Miflin; the Parson Thorne Mansion and more.

In this three-hour program, participants will learn about paranormal entities and the tools used to explore paranormal activity. By entering the various historic buildings, participants will investigate mysterious activities and view firsthand live data as it is being collected.
