Searching For Good Haunts In Western PA
Posted 04 September 2006 - 06:59 PM
I have a small group of Paranormal Investigators in Western PA.. Specifically Located in Lawrence/Beaver Counties.
We are desperately seeking haunted places to investigate in or around the area.
Locations: Lawrence County, Beaver County, possibly Allegheny County in PA
Types: Abandoned buildings, land, cemeteries, other.
Please.. we do NOT damage anything anywhere we go, and ask that everyone that considers doing this type of thing respect the properties as well.
I hope to become a big part of this forum, and I know you guys will help us out!!
Thanks in advance..
Please, if you know the exact locations and don't wish to share that information with everyone, feel free to email me or pm me. I assure you we keep this information confidential as needed.
Look forward to your responses...
