Last week, a team from TriCities.com, the Bristol Herald Courier and News Channel 11 spent the night
hunting ghosts at The Tavern in Abingdon. Tagging along with a local organization of paranormal
investigators, the Haunt Masters Club, the group filmed, blogged and tried to shine some light on the
numerous spooky sightings that have crept up about this old and storied building.
After reviewing the video and audio recordings from the night, the Haunt Masters found several anomalous
pieces of evidence indicative of paranormal behavior. The most stunning of these is a video of a chair
moving by itself in a completely empty room. Captured by a remote camera placed by the team, the wooden
chair appears to scoot backward as if pushed by some invisible force.
Along with the video of the chair, it was discovered that another video captured the sound of a ghostly
muffled voice and three audio-only recordings contained unexplained EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon.)
These pieces of evidence form a defensive case for the many anecdotal stories of hauntings that The Tavern
has garnered through the years.
Collecting these recordings was a task that took all night, beginning at 10 PM with the last member of the
crew leaving the building at 7:30 AM. The night began with sweeps of the building to collect “base readings”
– recording normal temperature, electromagnetic frequency levels, and more. This allowed the team to have
an understanding of the general conditions inside the building to compare with data collected later on.
After, the Haunt Masters began to set up their recording equipment in each room with the TriCities.com team
launching a live webcam and blog to record the night’s events as they happened. Work continued through
the night as more readings were taken and the team attempted to prompt replies from the unseen during EVP
recording sessions.
A full record of the night, along with the all of the evidence collected and personal afterthoughts from those
involved can be found on the Paranormal Blog at TriCitiesBlogs.com.

I certainly hope the ghost hunters know what they are doing. There is nothing worse than an angry ghost.
The ghost at my house knows no bounds. It goes around making noises in the middle of the night that sound
like a cat crying. Other times it will knock things off the table or scatter litter in the floor. If they ever find a
way to catch a ghost I would certainly look into buying a trap so I could use it to play tricks on my neighbors.
