Paranormal Historical Investigation: Exploring the Battle of Harlem Heights
Friday, Sept. 16, 7:00 - 9:30 PM
Looking for an unforgettable ghost adventure for you and your friends? This exclusive, themed paranormal investigation gives you insider access to Manhattan’s oldest surviving house — on the anniversary of the Battle of Harlem Heights – which was fought while Washington and the Continental Army were stationed at the Mansion.
You will learn the background of paranormal investigations, including the legendary paranormal activity at Morris-Jumel Mansion, while learning the history of the Mansion, its former residents, and interesting facts about the museum collection. During the program, you will have after-dark access to ghost hunt in the period rooms of the Mansion, normally closed off to the public. Believers and skeptics alike will enjoy the evening, and will have the opportunity to possibly communicate with Morris-Jumel Mansion’s former residents using paranormal investigative equipment.
