As one of the oldest cities in the country, Philadelphia is known for its historical sites. But most tourists miss out on the ghosts sometimes reportedly caught patrolling the famed spots. Besides the infamous Eastern State Penitentiary, paranormal activity has also been reported everywhere from the Edgar Allen Poe House and City Tavern to Independence Hall and even the Philadelphia Zoo. This means the terror-ific opportunities are endless for the students in Drexel’s newly formed Paranormal Investigation Group.
The group was co-founded less than a year ago by Matthew Kurtyka, a junior majoring in arts, entertainment and media management who, with his roommate, wanted to use his interest in the paranormal to start a ghost club at Drexel. Now, the student organization has more than 30 members who are possessed with an interest in the paranormal.
The students make trips to allegedly haunted historical sites where they use Ouija boards and equipment like high-quality cameras and audio recorders to interact with the spirit world. Or, at least, that’s the plan.
