Joint Paranormal Investigation: Scotchtown & Hanover Tavern

September 22, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - September 23, 2018 @ 2:00 am


What lurks in the shadows of Scotchtown and Hanover Tavern after dark?

It’s time for you to decide for yourself.

Join Transcend Paranormal and Commonwealth Researchers of the Paranormal for an evening of paranormal investigation like no other! For the first time, we are pairing up with Preservation Virginia and the Hanover Tavern Foundation to investigate Patrick Henry’s Scotchtownand Hanover Tavern – all in one evening! These locations are tied in history – from Patrick Henry’s family, the Shelton family, and more. Many of those who visited the grounds of Scotchtown were also visitors of Hanover Tavern and the surrounding buildings.

In addition to Scotchtown and Hanover Tavern, we will also have the opportunity to investigate a number of historical buildings at these locations! Among those open to us this evening will be:

Scotchtown Location:
Scotchtown (Main House)
Kitchen House
One other Outlying Building
Grounds & Garden

Hanover Tavern Location:
Hanover Tavern
Old Stone Jail
Historic Courthouse

We have investigated all of these locations and have come away with proof of the paranormal. Guests of these locations often report eerie experiences of ghostly apparitions, smells, and noises that could never be explained.

Admission is $75. Reservations are required.
All Experience Levels Welcome.
All proceeds of this event directly and entirely benefit Scotchtown and Hanover Tavern.
