I didn't think anyone even looked at this Blog but I guess I was wrong. Thank you to the people that do. I am remiss in that I haven't posted in nearly a year. Well I guess it's no secred that a season of Ghosts of Shepherdstown has just completed filming. I can't tell you anymore than that except there are more episodes and fantastic storylines. The whole crew is back and I hope you look for it on -- TLC! Yes we've switch to TLC so more people should be able to view it.
The 2017 season has started for my Walks and it's great to be 'back on the sadd'e'. I love sharing the history and mysteries of he town. Looking at the last post I had some people were questioning the picture -- I wouldn't post any picture that wasn't real and taken by myself or someone I was with at the time it was taken. There is an unseen world around us. Here is one of my more recent 'captures':
See the light anomoly and the very clear profile of a figure -- I call him Trent because he looks like Trent Reznor to me. Also notice on the left a shaft of light and white mist. This was taken in the Old English Graveyard. I took this on my camera phone, Comments? I promise I'll keep up this time.

Well I thought I would make an entry although I wonder if anyone ever sees them. That's ok. Things have been busy busy in Shepherdstown. Because of the TV show, Destination America's Ghosts of Shepherdstown more people have heard of us and have come to visit us, some from very far away. The Mystery Walks have been so busy.
The spirits of the town have also been very lively. Look at this photo capture Joanie Tompkins of Baltimore, Md got on a recent Walk. Who is that sitting at the Trinity Church Chapel Window?

How exciting to be part of this television show! I never imagined being on TV, so not matter what age, surprising things can happen. It was great fun working on the show, but watching it will be just as much a surprise for me as it will be for all the other viewers. I only know what I was filmed on, not knowing how it would be used in context or sequence. The cast and crew were wonderful fun and I wouldn't mind a bit if they came back for a second season.

I have been really really remiss in posting here much so I really need to catch up. Interesting things have been happening in Shepherdstown. A TV show was filmed here this past summer. It will be aired in early 2016 on the Destination America Channel. I am in all six episodes as the historical researcher. That's about all I can tell you right now, so stay tuned!
I also taught a Lifetime Learning class on the Mysteries of Shepherdstown and helped out with the Freshmen Enrichment Program at Shepherd University class called "Paranormal U".
The Mysteries Walks have gone on all summer and now as colder weather approaches we go in for the winter. That doesn't mean I won't be busy, I am writing a book about the Walk including ALL my stories, photos and the like.
I also began a Shepherdstown Most Haunted walk, where we visit local haunted hotspots -- graveyards, cemeteries, down by the river and other places. It could get really scary with people capturing interesting photos, EVPs and the like.
Please check out the latest photos in the gallery, there are several new ones. I used to be a healthy sceptic although interested in the paranormal, now I believe 110% that there is an unseen world around us.

What do you make of this. This is a photo that I myself took one night in the Shepherdstown Town Run Garden up in the branches of a tree.

The Little House was built in 1929. It was built by the Dept of Education of Shepherd College so that students could observe children in a natural environment. There originally was supposed to be a minature working farm but that didn't last. The Little House is completely furnished on it's two floors. It is open several times a year for children and other small people to go inside. It is just one of the interesting things you will see and learn about on the Shepherdstown Mysteries Walk.

There are other entities besides human spirits. Some we know, some we don't. Faeries, angels, shadow people, cryptids, ETs, to name a few, but there may be others. I am not sure if I believe in demons, but if I believe in faeries, anything is possible. I believe this first picture is faeries. They are up in a tree with a female spirit. I see them clearly, do you? Then there is "Olaf" that I got a picture of in the woods. I have no idea...one moment there was nothing but trees, and than this guy shows up.

At least for today we have a beautiful 70 degree weather here in Shephersdtown. First Mysteries Walk of the season is Saturday April 4, 7:00. Hope this weather continues! Walks will run April through November.
I have spent the winter researching and researching, fine tuning what I find, and adding some new stories to my walk. I am fascinated by the French Indian War. Everyone thinks of this area and thinks of the Civil War, which of course left a mighty impression. But from 1754 to 1763 and beyond the French Indian War raged from Canada to Virginia. The French and British, fighting over territory of course, fought by proxy with Native American allies on each side. They sometimes got carried away, to put it nicely. This 7 year war certainly left it's imprint as well, and you will hear so harrowing tales on the Walk.

This is Shep. He's about 12" of cute, cuddly creepiness, made by Skelanimals. No small beanie baby here. You can buy him in the Webstore or if you check us out on Facebook, there is soon to be a contest to win Shep and two passes for a Mysteries Walk.
