-- Washington, DC - - Research and Investigation of the Paranormal (R.I.P.), a group of ghost hunters based in the nation’s capitol, has been asked to investigate four historic, haunted properties in Baltimore’s Fells Point neighborhood. The Preservation Society of Federal Hill and Fells Point requested the investigations in order to determine the truth behind the many reports of ghostly sounds, sights, and smells at these properties over the years.
The Robert Long House, constructed around 1765, is the oldest urban residence still standing in Baltimore, while the Merchants House dates from circa 1800. The old hotel, now the Fells Point Visitors Center, is more accurately described as a former saloon and brothel that served the sailors in this active port city. Staff and visitors have experienced paranormal phenomena in all these locations, as well as in the nearby Horse Car Barn.
“We’re very excited about this opportunity,”
R.I.P. President Patricia Marin stated. “We’ve investigated a number of historic sites before and we’re looking forward to seeing what we can discover in Fells Point.” The group uses both scientific and occult methodologies to uncover paranormal activities. Along with employing various types of equipment, R.I.P. also has two mediums on the team, one of whom is a federal law enforcement agent in his day job. “We have high standards of proof for paranormal activities,”
explained Lisa Linden, R.I.P. Co-Founder.
R.I.P.’s first investigation of the Robert Long House and the Merchants House begins the evening of April 24th and may last all night. This investigation is being filmed for an episode of “The R.I.P. Files,” the group’s new Internet TV series which will debut on Ghost Channel TV (www.ghostchannel.tv)
and on blip.tv this spring. Interviews or on-site visits may be arranged in advance by contacting Patricia Marin at the above number or via email to ghosthunterpat@
