Thank you for visiting the Mass Ghost Hunters Paranormal Society
We are a group of experienced investigators from Gloucester, Massachusetts who became interested in the paranormal after participating in an event at the Houghton Mansion in North Adams, Massachusetts. Amazed and excited by the experiences that we'd had, our curiosity quickly became a passion. We revisited Houghton for a second investigation and although the evening seemed quiet, we caught some amazing evidence.  After that night, and months of research, we formed an official paranormal group.  Since it's inception our team members have investigated numerous paranormal hot spots including the Victorian Mansion in Gardner, Ma., Pennhurst State School (also known as Pennhurst Asylum) in Spring City, PA., The Irish Mist bar and restaurant in Troy, NY, and the Fort William Henry Museum and Restoration in Lake George, NY.  We now offer our services to the public, FOR FREE, so that we may help those who are experiencing things that they cannot explain, and perhaps have no one else to turn to.  If you have ANY questions or concerns regarding something that you are experiencing please don't hesitate to contact us.

'Tis the busy season in the paranormal and we are slammed with investigations. Before I talk about our current news I would like to congratulate a few friends on their current good fortune. Recently it was announced that Tim Weisberg of "Spooky Southcaost" and  "Legend Trippers", will be the writer and researcher for the new show "Ghost Stalkers" on Destination America. This could not happen to a nicer guy. Tim is truly one of the class acts in this field and someone I have looked up to for a long time. I am excited to see how this show will take paranormal research to the next level. I would also like to congratulate Eric Perry, founder of "CNHPS" on his recent success. He not only has an excellent radio show, but he also has a cable access show "Haunted in New England" AND he has "Are you Haunted" tours as well. Finally I would like to recognize the hard work and dedication of our dear friends Denny and Tiffany-Beth Gager. Their Internet Radio Station, DTM Wicked Radio, has grown so much over the last year and it is all because of their hard work and dedication. They are incredibly hard workers and the kind of people that you are proud to call your friend. 

Our Lizzie Borden event was an amazing night with some great experiences and is now scratched off of our guests bucket lists. We had so much fun with everyone and the staff, especially Danielle Cabral, was helpful, informative and hospitable. Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast is a must for any paranormal enthusiast. Thank you to everyone who came out and joined in the fun that night. 

Our next big event will be at Ventfort Hall in Lenox, Ma. on November 15th. This gorgeous mansion was built by Sarah Morgan, sister of J P Morgan, as a summer home in the Berkshires. Although there is no real history of tragedy at the location there have been many reports of paranormal activity. We are really looking forward to working with Brian Cano on this event and making it yet another fun and informative time for everyone. 

Have a great weekend everyone and be safe!

We would like to thank everyone who was able to stop by our booth yesterday at the Gloucester, Ma. "Block Party" last night. It was nice to hear folks tell us their stories and for us to share our stories with them. The highlight of the night for us was being able to educate some of the curious kids about the equipment we use and how it helps. Thank you to our incredible city for allowing us the opportunity to engage the community. Only 12 days to Lizzie Borden! 

Thank you and Be Safe,

So, how are you? It's been a while since we have posted something new and that is because our schedule has been crazy! In case you have not had a chance to check out Marc and Lauren's weekly show on, we figured we would tease it a little. This week on their Wednesday night show, at 7pm EST, they will be speaking with Brian Cano of SCARED! and Haunted Collector. We would also like to let you know that there are still 2 TICKETS remaining for the Lizzie Borden event on August 29th. Hope to see you there and check back soon for more events to come...

What an amazing Event Para History Con 2 was. I can not even begin to tell you the fun we had in Lake George NY during the BEST event ever held. One of the many highlights from this past weekend was getting everyone to sign my "Para Whore" that I got from Scott Gruenwald. I will post photos from the weekend soon. IN THE MEANTIME... We have so much going on right now. A few residential cases have come up, a couple of local business and a few events are on the horizon as well. Next stop is the Sin City Paranormal Expo in Lynn Ma. on May 17th. Please check back soon for the photos and event information. 

Thank you for supporting us and have a wonderful day!!!!

We recently had the wonderful pleasure of helping a family who was curious about some activity in their home. They were so hospitable and welcoming. It was an honor to work for them. We are meeting with another potential client this week and then a few of us will be attending Para-History Con 2 in Lake George NY from May 2nd-4th. Look for some videos on our Youtube channel and updates on Twitter live from the convention! Thank you all for your support and please help us spread the word that our services are professional and free.

Thank you again and Be Safe!

This has been one LOOOOONG winter. Now that Spring is around the corner we hope that you will all be ready for what we are about to announce. Our dear friends over at Glory Haunt Hounds have decided to make their "Return to Pennhurst" in June their final event. With that being said, we would like to pick up where they will leave off. MGHPS will soon be helping to raise the awareness of some incredible locations by telling, and helping to preserve their history. This is not a process that happens overnight so please keep an eye to this page for future announcements. We are very excited for this project and I hope you will all participate in some way. 

Thank you again and Be Safe,
