Ghost hunting to preserve a landmark

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

After several decades, a local church finally opens its doors to the public this weekend.

“The building itself is beautiful and simple,” Jake Hudson said. “It’s filled with history and mystery.”

Bear Creek Church in Culleoka will share its rich history with people from all over by having a public tour of the building. The public tour will be $5 per person. The church will begin tours on Saturday, April 6, from noon to 5 p.m.

People know this property by its highly active paranormal reputation. Hudson, a paranormal investigator with Paranormal Inc., people have spotted apparitions of a lady overlooking the property from a window and a red-eyed four-legged beast. When the paranormal team approached the owner, the owner was hesitant due to the property’s past.

The church has been vandalized by other paranormal investigators and fanatics over the years which has helped the building age even faster. Not to mention, there have been reports of cultists on the property. The roof repair alone will be around $15,000.

Hudson and his group wanted to give back to the property after the damage caused by other, less professional “investigators.”

Paranormal investigators will be on site this weekend hosting investigations both Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6. The teams are hosting two investigations each day. Both sessions start at 7 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. There will be another investigation from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. both nights. Each spot is $50. Tickets are available online through Facebook or the site:

Purchasing a ticket to the ghost tour will give people exclusive access to a free investigation at BFE Haunted Trails located in Pulaski as well.
