Join the Historical Society of Easton as they welcome the Northeast Paranormal Investigative Society (NPIS) for a history lesson you will not soon forget!  Easton has long been the destination for many enthusiasts seeking evidence of unexplained activity especially in Union Cemetery. During the fall 2013, the Historical Society of Easton invited NPIS to investigate the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead for paranormal activity. Using sophisticated equipment to record the voices of spirits known as EVP and capture data they then compare their results to the known history of the house. On Sunday March 16th, 2014 NPIS will present their findings from the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead and other investigations conducted at various historic sites throughout Connecticut with a special video presentation. Adam Shefts, Founder, Director and Investigator of NPIS will share his team’s scientific exploration, approach and analysis.
