No upcoming date/times for this event.

Join Transcend Paranormal for an evening unlike any other, as we venture hundreds of years into the past...

The evening will begin at Hanover Tavern. The earliest portion of the Tavern being built in 1791, there was a Tavern on the property spanning back to 1733. One of only a few surviving colonial-era Taverns in the United States, the Hanover Tavern hosted such historic figures as George Washington, Lord Cornwallis, Patrick Henry, P.T. Barnum, Marquis de Lafayette, and more. Both Union and Confederate troops utilized the Tavern on their way to and from the battlefields.

Not only will you have the opportunity to investigate Hanover Tavern, but also the Historic Courthouse, Old Stone Jail, and The Library as well - each a hotbed for paranormal activity.

For years, guests of each of these locations report eerie experiences of ghost apparitions, smells, and unexplainable noises. Are previous Hanover Tavern keepers still roaming the halls? Are prisoners still confined to their cells, locked in time? Find out for yourself!

All Experience Levels are Welcome.


Tickets are extremely limited for this investigation.


This is a fundraising event! 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the Hanover Tavern Foundation for their continued historic preservation and restoration efforts, as well as educational programming and community outreach!


ğğ¥ğžğšğ¬ğž 𝐍𝐨𝐭𝐞:

  • We will be breaking into small groups to investigate each location. Each group will be led by an investigator with equipment that may help you on your investigation!
  • We will be traveling outdoors to different buildings during the investigation. Please dress accordingly.
  • Please do not put on fragrances prior to the investigation. Smells and scents are often reported at haunted locations as a sign of spirit activity, and it will be difficult to identify if we are wearing fragrances.
  • Please do not wear loose jewelry, baggy clothing, etc. These often make extra sounds and noises that will make listening to and identifying E.V.P.s difficult!
  • There will be identified location(s) outside for you to smoke. All forms of cigarettes, vapes, e-cigs, etc. are not to be utilized while within any buildings. There will be an identified receptacle for cigarette butt disposal.
  • Please do not plan to investigate under the influence of drugs or alcohol. You will be asked to leave if so.
  • Weapons of any and all kinds are strictly forbidden.
  • Ouija Boards are strictly forbidden.
  • "Crossing over", "Smudging", and "Provoking" are strictly prohibited.
  • Bring your equipment! We'll have some that you can use within your groups, but you are welcome to bring any equipment you have for investigating that you can carry with you. A flashlight is highly encouraged. Additionally, if you do not have an audio recorder, bring your phone! We'll ask you to put it in airplane mode, but you can still record audio onto your cellphone - a large number of people on our investigations have recorded EVPs on their phones!
  • 𝐌𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐢𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲, ğ¡ğšğ¯ğž 𝐟𝐮𝐧!
  • This investigation is for you, so bring your ideas and thoughts for investigating! You never know what, or who, you will run into, and we value your unique ideas and suggestions for investigating these locations! We urge you to be ready to be involved in the investigation! Think of some questions you'd like to ask in advance, if you have any theories that we can test out, and more!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Hanover Tavern or Transcend Paranormal
