Huntington Paranormal Investigations & Research is located in Huntington, West Virginia. Our group has been investigating paranormal claims since 2006, and offering haunted tours of Guyandotte since 2008. Our page is dedicated to provide you information about various paranormal topics, an archive of our past investigations and information about our haunted tours and more.
It’s creeping closer! We here at HPIR are so excited that the Fall/Halloween
season is almost upon us because we love this time of year. Things are about to
get hectic within HPIR, because it’s the busiest time of year for us. We are
fast approaching tour season and with summer mostly behind us, I will get you
caught up to speed with what we have been up to and what to expect in the
Investigations – Our last investigation was at the old HarverytownElementary School,
but today it’s better known as Huntington’s Museum of Radio and Technology. We investigated
this really neat museum back at the end of July. While we didn’t walk away with
much in the line of evidence of hauntings in this building, the stories we were
told about the activity really led us to believe that much of what happens
there is residual in nature. Either way, we had an enjoyable evening there.
Anniversary – In August we had our 7 year anniversary as a
team! We held off for the celebration a little longer than usual and just
recently held our annual picnic to celebrate in September. This year we hosted
the picnic at our favorite haunted house, the Buffington House. We had some
fine ghostly decorations, some delicious food and plenty of friends and family
of HPIR to celebrate the occasion with. We even did a little ghost hunting
after everyone filled their tummies, and were surprised when we all heard a
pitter patter of what sounded like little feet that quickly moved across the
floor in the adjacent room from where we were sitting. We had an enjoyable
night with a neat, possibly ghostly experience to end our evening.
Buffington House Ghost Hunts – We ended out the summer with
one last ghost hunt at the Buffington House for the season. WTHWT Paranormal spent
an evening investigating the house. They told our group they had some really
great experiences while they were investigating. We have one last team who
had to reschedule, we are closing out the Buffington House ghost hunts until
sometime in 2014. We of course will post updates and information as to when the
hunts will resume at a later date.
Team Toni – We continue to work with and support the efforts
of Team Toni! Once again, we will be giving our time to this worthy cause
and helping sponsor their upcoming event, the Team Toni 2nd Annual
Poker Run coming up on Sept. 14, 2013. This will be the second year that HPIR
has volunteered our time for this wonderful fundraiser.
– I posted a blog about our upcoming ghost tours last month, but to refresh
your memory we are planning our annual tours this October and November. The
tour dates for this year are 10/18, 10/19, 11/1 and 11/2. We have made some
changes in our schedule this year as we do our Halloween tour a week earlier
than normal. Also due to some previous issues we chose to cut our Guyandotte Cemetery Tour this year but instead
will be offering something completely different! And as a reminder, our group will not be offering any ghost tours during Swinefest this year and are replacing that weekend event with a new event.
Public Ghost Hunts – I mentioned above about adding
something completely different to our schedule and we have decided to offer ghost hunts to the public this October. These hunts will be organized
much like our tours, however instead of visiting a dozen or so locations and
learning about the history and hauntings, we are going to take you into a
haunted house to spend some time and learn about ghost hunting. This will be a
more hands on approach for those who are really interested in learning more
about ghost hunting. We hope this event will become just as popular as our
That about wraps up the September updates! We hope we will
get the chance to meet many of you this fall if you come out to take a tour or
experience a first hand ghost hunt!
