— This month, explore all things paranormal with The Ghost Guild.

The Ghost Guild was founded in 2017 and are the official paranormal investigators for Mordecai Park and Theatre in the Park.

The local paranormal research group has three free public events in the area and all are virtual.

  • The group will be speaking as part of Wake County Public Libraries' "Haunted Carolina" event on Oct. 21 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
  • On Oct. 28, they will be participating in the North Carolina Museum of History's "History and Highballs: Haunted Mordecai" virtual event form 7 to 8 p.m.
  • On Oct. 30, they will be part of the annual Mordecai History Park Haunted Festival from 7:30 to 9 p.m. This year, the event will be virtual and include the history and investigation data from Mordecai, in addition to the Borden Building and Tucker House.

While 2020 was quieter for The Ghost Guild due to COVID-19, things began to pick up in 2021.

"As things started kind of slowly reopening and, we also started a partnership with a Historic Salisbury Foundation and that allowed us to investigate a lot of the properties in that area," The Ghost Guild co-founder Nelson Nauss said. "This year we've done a total of 14 investigations at 11 different locations. So definitely a change over the first year of the pandemic."

If you wan to join them on a paranormal investigation, tickets for their April 9, 2022 investigation aboard the USS Battleship North Carolina go on sale Dec. 1.
