Long regarded as one of Deadwood’s most haunted sites, participants will search for paranormal activity in the Adams House using parascopes, para-lanterns, the Tempest, Rem-Pod, Onvoy ghost box, Pharaoh Box, Flux 2, Ovilus, digital audio recorders, laser grids, divining rods, K2’s, and EMF meters. Learn the history behind the darker stories associated with the home on an exclusive ninety minute paranormal investigation. The BHPI team will discuss documenting and analyzing the results of possible paranormal phenomena during the investigation and explain the findings from recent investigations 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.

Dani Jo Butler is a Psychic Medium in the Black Hills of South Dakota who is bringing healing and a connection to the Divine for all who encounter her. She is a spirit-guided intuitive, teacher, author, and healer bringing love and light for those local and worldwide. Butler will be performing group readings in the gentlemen’s smoking room in the turret – this area of the home is not typically available to the public.
