Recordings of disembodied voices and a number of eerie personal experiences are enough for the Mason Dixon Paranormal Society to conclude that the Schifferstadt Architectural Museum is haunted. After conducting a two-night paranormal investigation nearly three weeks ago, the society met with the museum's staff Monday to reveal its findings.During the investigation, which was open to the public for a fee to benefit the museum, the society collected about 70 hours of digital videorecordings, more than two hours of thermal imaging video, and 180 hours of audio.

"It doesn't really change
things for me, but I already knew what was going on," said Greg Glewwe,
who helps with the museum's Spirit Tours. "Even if you do get a little
bit of a creepy feeling, there's never been anything negative happen.
In the end, there's some stuff that you can't come up with an

former director and a self-proclaimed skeptic, thinks the ghostly
evidence is more reassuring than anything.
