HAUNTED HISTORY NIGHT 2011
Join the Spooky Crew and author and paranormal personality Jeff Belanger as they help open the doors of the renowned Fearing Tavern to the public for paranormal investigation!
This is one of the most historic haunts you'll ever get the chance to visit, dating back to the 1690s. It's seen every day of this country's history, and has played a major role in it--from loyalty to the Redcoats in the Revolutionary War (including a hidden room that allegedly housed British soldiers) to possibly serving as a stop in the Underground Railroad, this amazing building is full of period-era antiques and artifacts. Spooky Southcoast was the first group to ever investigate the Tavern, and the place simply came alive!
You'll also have the opportunity to investigate three other historic buildings located across the street, including the Old Methodist Meetinghouse (circa 1835), the One-Room Schoolhouse (circa 1825), and the Union Chapel (circa 1880). We are also in discussions with the town to the include the Tremont Nail Factory (1848) and its various outbuildings.

Andrew Lake is a Rhode Island native who has known since the age of eleven that ghosts are real and scientists with fancy equipment and stiff theories need to get real. Going to work right after graduating from Smithfield High School in 1982, he has done many jobs including courier, warehouseman, travel guide researcher, stand up comedian (no money in that!) and home health care technician. During the nine years Andrew worked with the sick and elderly, his belief in an existence after death was reinforced by tales told to him by patients and their families. Living in a haunted house for five years also helped cement his fascination with ghosts and their antics. Andrew formed Greenville Paranormal Research in 2006 and has worked with some of the best ghost hunters the Northeast has to offer. He is currently producing, writing, and directing documentaries about haunted locations around New England. Andrew also produced and edited the DVDs for author/researcher Christopher Balzano's books Picture Yourself Ghost Hunting and Picture Yourself Capturing Ghosts On Film as well as making appearances on Spooky Southcoast Radio, Ghost Chronicles, Ghost R Near, and Paranormal TV. His first book, "Ghosthunting Southern New England," will be published by Clerisy Press in September of 2011.
