VSU students, faculty and staff will receive the chance to attend a real paranormal investigation with Valdosta’s Cross the Line Paranormal investigation team.
The members of CLP will be hosting Haunted Hahira Nights, a paranormal investigation of the Old Smith Hospital on Oct. 18, 19, 25 and 26.
“This is for those who would like to be a ghost hunter for a night,” Richard Pace, CLP investigator and website designer, said. “There will be four sessions each night stating at 8 p.m. The cost is $15 per session with proceeds going to the Hahira Historical Society.”
Based out of Valdosta and created in 2010, the CLP is a non-profit investigation group that inspects and debunks paranormal claims. The team is always accepting membership applications from anyone interested in the paranormal, but investigations are restricted to members only.
“We mainly investigate in Georgia and Florida but will go anywhere that we are needed,” Pace said. “We have been to Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Kentucky and the Old south Pittsburgh Hospital in Tennessee.”
CLP’s next investigation will be hosted in Green Cove Springs, Fla. at a local jail that has been closed for over four decades. To capture evidence the team relies on audio recordings, photos and personal experiences.
“We use a range of equipment from digital recorders, full-spectrum cameras, night vision cameras, laser grids, thermometers and EMF meters,” Pace said.
To join the team or attend Hahira Horror Nights, contact Jeannie Pace at (229) 251-4288 or on CLP’s website and Facebook page.
