Paranormal Investigation at Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum & Gardens

In case you don't know, there is a big difference between going on a "ghost tour" and going on a "paranormal investigation". Ghost tours are more about hearing scary stories about a place, while a paranormal investigation involves hunting for the spirits responsible for those scary stories you've heard.
