The Dunn County Historical Society will host its fourth annual Ghosts of Dunn County event on Saturday, Oct. 21st, 2017. Tickets are $5 for an adult or $1 for a child under 12. The night will be headlined by Johnsdale Paranormal Group (Onamia, Minn.) who will give two presentations at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on their investigation of the Louis Smith Tainter House.
This past August, Justin Miner and the rest of the paranormal group set up their infrared cameras around the Louis Smith Tainter house (LST) for an overnight investigation. Before beginning, the paranormal group toured the building and heard stories from those who have encountered “mysterious” activity in the building.
Using the information gathered, the paranormal group used multiple pieces of equipment to gather evidence of the spirits that may or may not haunt the LST. “We caught two of our best EVPs ever on this investigation,” Miner said. EVPs stand for Electronic Voice Phenomena, voices that cannot be heard by the human ear but that many believe an EVP device can capture.
The Ghosts of Dunn County event will be the debut of their findings from this investigation. Johnsdale Paranormal will also speak on their equipment, techniques used, and other investigations they have done throughout the country. Between the two presentations, eventgoers have an opportunity to walk through the dimly lit Rassbach Heritage museum and hear creepy stories of Dunn County’s past.
Presentations are at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., with the “spooky” walk through from 6:1 5 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Each presentation is the same so attendees only need to purchase a ticket for one of the times.
The Rassbach Heritage Museum is located at 1820 Wakanda Street in Menomonie’s Wakanda Park. For info, visit www.dunnhistory.org or call 715-232-8685.
