The Ghosts of Ross Mansion

A report on the findings of two investigations by Phantom Detectives.

Monday, October 9 at 7:15 PM

Is the Governor Ross Mansion haunted?

This was the question presented to the Seaford Historical Society by the paranormal investigative team, Phantom Detectives. The group made two visits to the property in the spring of 2023 to gather data using the latest technology in their field. Visitors will get to see the evidence for themselves, including photographic and audio recordings made on site.
