The intrepid investigators with the Vancouver Paranormal Society are returning to Surrey’s historic Stewart Farm, where they’ll share their discoveries with the public during two evening talks this month.
The talks are a chance for the public to learn more about how investigations are conducted, a process involving high-tech audio and video equipment, and hours of raw material that is painstakingly reviewed by members for anomalies.
The society doesn’t describe its work as ghost-hunting. Rather, members seek to find logical explanations for what they uncover, and the society does not charge for investigations.
Is Stewart Farm haunted? Well, maybe that will be revealed this time around.
At an initial public talk at the farm last year, representatives of the Vancouver Paranormal Society shared audio clips, video footage and more collected during an investigation of the 1884 farmhouse.
According to society president Peter Renn, speaking at last October’s event, the farm shows signs of phenomena that’s residual in nature and not of an active haunting.
The team was back to investigate the farmhouse and farm buildings last month – for the third time.
Their team has visited private homes and historic sites like the Stewart Farm, plus Fort Langley, Steveston Harbour, Stave Falls Powerhouse, and even the pub at the historic Coalmont Hotel, which provided some of the most startling visual phenomena shared with participants.
An Evening With the Paranormal Society is presented Thursday, Oct. 9 and 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. Cost is $15 (for ages 16 years and up). Participants must pre-register by calling 604-592-6956. Visit www.surrey.ca/heritage.
