PRS RETURNS TO GETTYSBURG TO CELEBRATE ITS 18TH ANNIVERSARY AND INVESTIGATE SOME OF THE MOST HISTORIC HAUNTS IN AMERICA!

AN EVENT HELD BY PRS ENTERTAINMENT LLC.

Calling all PRS fans and supporters! Whether you’re a new or longtime fan, we invite you to join us October 24th-27th in Gettysburg, PA to celebrate our 18th year! We will be exploring some of the most famous haunts the town has to offer, including the Tillie Pierce Inn (as seen on “Paranormal State”), Jennie Wade House and the Orphanage. Take an historic ghost tour, check out the battle sites, gain deeper insight into paranormal research with our workshops, learn about exciting new PRS projects and celebrate PRS’ 18th birthday with our Halloween/birthday bash. There’s something for everyone! If this is your first time in Gettysburg, you’ll be in great company, as Ryan Buell and staff will take you to numerous haunts across town. Gettysburg truly lives up to its reputation of being one of the most haunted places in America!

This event marks our return to Pennsylvania (where PRS was founded), so we are beyond excited. PRS has investigated Gettysburg both for “Paranormal State” and with attendees many times. This event will be capped at 50 people in order to ensure that we all get to have an amazing and intimate experience.

We are offering two ticket packages. For those who want to come for the whole Thursday-Sunday event, this will include all activities. Or, if you want to come just for the Anniversary Dinner/Social on Saturday, you can register for just that. We hope to see you there!

SOME HIGHLIGHTS ABOUT THIS EVENT

Investigations, Investigations and more Investigations!

We will be investigating three key sites during our event:

The Orphanage - Without a doubt one of the must-see places in Gettysburg, we will be investigating the Orphanage all Thursday night in small groups.

Jennie Wade House - One of the most famous places in America, the Jennie Wade house is known for being heavily active. We will conduct an investigation in small groups Friday night.

The Tillie Pierce House - A relatively new addition to the “most haunted” of Gettysburg, PRS investigated the Tillie Pierce House in 2009 when it became a bed and breakfast. An historic building with deep ties to the Civil War, many people have reported paranormal activity while staying there. PRS investigated the location for an episode of “Paranormal State” and documented quite a lot of activity. We will be investigating this site throughout the weekend.

PRS’ 18th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION

PRS was formed in September 2001, so this fall, PRS turns 18! And since this event also falls so close to Halloween, we’ll be throwing a joint anniversary and Halloween dinner social on Saturday night at the Wyndham Hotel.

PRS has hosted all of its past Gettysburg events at the Wyndham, so this hotel holds a special place with PRS history.

The dinner will begin with a meet-and-greet (for guests just coming for the dinner), then a special presentation given by Ryan Buell. The Wyndham will be catering a special dinner (where we’ll offer appetizers, three entree choices, snacks and a PRS cake), followed by some hauntingly fun social activities!

We hope you can make it!

Haunted Battlefield Excursions, Workshops, Ghost Tours and More!

PRS will take attendees to the battlefields on Friday and Saturday, including Devil’s Den, Sach’s Bridge and more to learn about the history of the Civil War and the numerous paranormal experiences that have occurred on site. Don’t underestimate these locations. Of all the times we’ve been to Gettysburg, quite a few attendees have had powerful experiences while on the battlefields. While there, we will host group circle discussions.

Workshops: We will host a few workshops on Friday, October 25th at the Wyndham, ranging from Historical Paranormal Investigations, Spirit Communication and more!

Haunted Museum: PRS will take a trip to the local paranormal museum to learn about its various collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

email us at society@the-prs.org for questions

 

I'm not an experienced paranormal investigator.  Is this for me?

You do not need to be an experienced investigator to enjoy this investigation event.  It is for novices and seasoned investigators, alike.

I'm coming by myself and I don't know anyone.  I'm afraid of not fitting in.

Everyone started out just like you.  But please know that you'll be amongst like-minded people, and it is VERY easy to make friends.  We are all sharing in an adventure together.  A unique life experience during this 4-day event.  You will have a good time as long as you have a good attitude about you.

Are We Allowed To Bring Paranormal Investigation Equipment? Yes.  We encourage this.

Is alcohol permitted on site?

We politely ask people not to drink before or during event activities. It usually leads to some pretty bad behavior. Altered states of mind and the paranormal do not mix.

Is drug use permitted on site?

Are you kidding?

What do I need to bring to be comfortable at this event?

Since this event will be in the Fall, we are anticipating mild weather. However, it is important to check the weather forecast as we get closer to the event. Most events are indoors, except for the battlefield excursions and ghost tours, which will be held at night. Temperatures around this time of year in Pennsylvania can vary.

Are the investigations going to be too intense for me?

It’s hard to answer that question. Everyone has their own personal boundary. Here’s what WON’T happen: you won’t be left alone against your will. If you a frightened, there will be experienced investigators who will be able to talk with you and if need be, walk you out if you feel unsafe. PRS will not allow for things to break out into hysterics.

With that being said, we are going into some of the most active places in America. Thankfully, they’ve been well investigated, so people typically know what to expect. A lot of activity has been reported in all the locations we are investigating (especially including the battlefields, even in the daytime). Above everything, we hope you enjoy yourself.
