There will be a ghost hunt on Saturday night at the Robertson County Museum. SUBMITTED

On Saturday, May 29, the Robertson County Museum in Springfield will host a ghost hunt fundraiser.

Led by a team of seasoned paranormal investigators, those at the event will conduct a series of investigations around the museum from 6 to 9 p.m.

Using state of the art equipment as well as every day devices like flashlights, the investigators will attempt to make contact with the spirits that are said to reside in the museum.

The event is organized by Allen Sircy, author of the Southern Ghost Stories books and podcast. All proceeds will be donated to the museum which experienced a decline in attendance last year due to the pandemic.

“The Robertson County Museum is said to be one of the most haunted places in Springfield, said Sircy. “Back in the 1800s, the property was originally home to a hotel that later became a sanitarium. There’s a lot of history there in addition to the historical items on display. Whether you are a novice or experienced paranormal investigator, the event should be a lot of fun, and it’s raising money for a good cause.”

Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online at Eventbrite.com by searching for “Paranormal Investigation of the Robertson County Museum.” You can also find out more information about the event on the Southern Ghost Stories or Tennessee Hauntings Facebook pages.
