A Paranormal Investigation of the Adams Museum & House

Posted: Wed, October 19, 2011


Earlier this year Black Hills Paranormal Investigations (BHPI) examined the Adams Museum and Historic Adams House for paranormal activity using night vision cameras, full spectrum cameras, digital audio recorders and EMF meters. After analyzing the results, they believe they’ve uncovered evidence of possible paranormal phenomena.

BHPI will discuss investigative techniques, the pros and cons of the equipment, and what paranormal research is and is not. This presentation will dispel myths that have been passed along about the paranormal.  BHPI will also show evidence from their investigations of the Deadwood brothels, as well as some interesting evidence from the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, WY.

Black Hills Paranormal Investigations covers South Dakota, Eastern Wyoming, Northwest Nebraska and Southwest Montana. BHPI is a group dedicated to the study of paranormal phenomena. The group uses scientific methods, systematic processes, skepticism and logical thinking for data collection and analysis. BHPI does not enter an investigation looking to prove paranormal activity or a haunting is taking place, they simply allow the evidence to tell the story.

This event is co-sponsored by the Deadwood Historic Preservation Commission, Adams-Mastrovich Family Foundation, Black Hills Pioneer, Duhamel Broadcasting and the Historic Homestake Opera House. 

The Adams Museum, Historic Adams House and Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center identify, preserve, collect, interpret and promote the history and culture of Deadwood and the surrounding Black Hills for the benefit of members of the Northern Black Hills community, visitors to the area and researchers.
