Learn the history behind the darker stories associated with the Adams House on an exclusive ninety minute paranormal investigation of one of Deadwood’s most haunted sites. Participants will search for paranormal activity using night vision cameras, full spectrum cameras, a binoptic anomaly camera, Para Music Box, periscopes, Ovilus, digital audio recorders, Edi Data Logger, and EMF meters. The BHPI team will discuss documenting and analyzing the results of possible paranormal phenomena during the investigation and explain the findings from their recent investigation of the Adams House.

Black Hills Paranormal Investigations conduct investigations in South Dakota, Eastern Wyoming, Northwest Nebraska, and Southwest Montana. BHPI is dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena. The group uses scientific methods, systematic processes, skepticism, and logical thinking for data collection and analysis. BHPI does not enter an investigation looking to prove paranormal activity or a haunting is taking place, they simply allow the evidence to tell the story.
