Stories in the Cemetery isn’t just an Interactive Ghost Hunting Experience in downtown Charleston, SC. Our story started off as a blog and podcast with the same name. This was sparked by a curiosity of findings truths behind the television shows and past studies of the paranormal for a better understanding of what lies beyond the grave. None of us have all the answers.
Through studies for the blog and podcast, we have found certain curiosities that warranted taking a study further. With new Co-Host Amy Smart, Stories in the Cemetery is battling the toughest questions of the paranormal and either solidifying or debunking the tools used on paranormal investigations.
We’ve found that using only proven tools on the Interactive Ghost Hunting Experiences show what an amazing amount of knowledge we are missing of the afterlife. For a better experience that can be proven by all, Stories in the Cemetery only uses electronic devices during the experiences. But that’s not to say that electronics are the only tools that can prove the paranormal activity found by many using devices like spirit boards, crystals, pendulums, dowsing rods, and the like. They simply create an experience for the user only without any measurable data.
This Ghost Hunting 101 series of blog posts and podcast episodes dives into both categories of paranormal experience measurements: through electronics and manual methods. This is an ever-growing list of topics as Stories in the Cemetery continues to explore both sets of categories of the paranormal.
