The Haunted Rails – Ghost Train
On October 25th we are hosting the second annual ‘Haunted Rails Ghost Train’ on the Adirondack Railroad based on the CNY Paranormal series. Take a ride on the Halloween party train to Remsen with TV Ghost Hunting personalities to experience a haunting Halloween Party and public ghost hunting sessions at two historic sites.
Based on the CNY Paranormal series, Haunted Rail participants can ride the train with TV Ghost Hunting personalities bound for Remsen. Ticket buyers can choose to either explore two reportedly haunted sites: Capel Cerrig and The Remsen Depot through Ghost Hunting, and enjoy paranormal entertainment (tarot card and psychics) or party the night away at the Remsen Center for the Performing Arts at an exciting Halloween themed party featuring music, food, giveaways and cash prizes for those in costume. The train ride home will continue the Halloween themed party back to Union Station.
Tickets $50 (choose either Ghost Hunter or Halloween Partier)
Remsen Stone Meeting House
Capel Cerrig (Stone Church) was built in 1831, and is located in downtown Remsen. The church was built out of stone, and has remained unchanged since it was built, with the exception of a new slate roof in 1888.
The Stone Meeting House, as it is now named, has often been thought to be haunted. Reports of strange lights, and feeling watched have been reported by many. Investigations of the building have revealed that those reports most likely are accurate. Photographs have been taken of the building that show a shadowy figure of a man in a top hat. Audio recordings made on the site indicate that there are at least two spirits present, a chatty female spirit and a sarcastic male spirit. [Read More...]
Remsen Depot, originally a union station for the Utica & Black River and the New York Central Railroad was constructed in the late 19th century serving for many years before it was torn down in 1964 and subsequently re-built in 1999.
The Depot has had many late-night ghostly accounts at the stations and tracks. Reports of feeling watched in the station, the ghostly figures walking the grounds or a vanishing conductor that greets would-be passengers as they enter the station. [Read More...]
Remsen Center For The Performing Arts
The Remsen Art Center was originally a Baptist Church dedicated in 1893 and served for many years before being decommissioned and re-purposed multiple times over the subsequent years.
Many report of organ music, phantom noises and fleeting shadow figures while in the building at night.
