Oct 16th On Saturday, October 16, the South Cumberland Library will host paranormal investigator Steve Hall. Hall will discuss the investigation he conducted at the historic Washington Street Library as well as other haunted halls around the county. Hall conducted an investigation at the Washington Street Library in 2016 after several staff at the Washington Street branch claimed paranormal occurrences. The library, being over 170 years old, is rife with history. The building was once an Academy turned into a Civil War hospital, among other rumors of being connected to the Underground Railroad and once having gallows. A ghost expert and instructor for Introduction to Paranormal Investigations at Allegany College of Maryland, Hall tries to find reasonable explanations to why some things go bump in the night. Using ghost hunting equipment and logic, he can present sensible findings to what may be happening in some of our most seemingly haunted places. The presentation, entitled “An Afternoon with the Paranormal” will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the meeting room of the South Cumberland Library. It is free and open to the public. For more information, visit the library’s website at www.alleganycountylibrary.info.
