Paranormal Expo: Hill House Manor in Gainesville, Texas


Unique Paranormal Event in Gainesville, Texas

I’m honored and excited to be giving a talk on Historic Cemetery Symbols during a unique paracon at the end of this month. Simply called “Hill House Manor,” this event combines the fun of a paranormal expo with the thrill of ghost hunting at historic haunted sites.

Fun Filled Weekend

If you’ve ever been to a paranormal expo before, you know the drill. You spend the day listening to fascinating speakers share paranormal expertise. You cruise through vendor booths, mixing and mingling with like-minded souls, while loading up on interesting books, crystals, jewelry, and ghost hunting equipment. You might even get a psychic reading while you’re there, too.

But then night comes, and after hearing about paranormal activity all day long, you’re absolutely dying to take part in a real life ghost hunt of your own. But where to go? What to do?

<shameless plug>If you’re in north Texas, of course, you can always buy a copy of Paranormal Texas, my best selling travel guide to haunted sites. It’s full of paranormal hot spots you can explore!</shameless plug!>

Paracon Fun with Ghost Hunting Thrills

But what if someone hosted a paranormal open house where the fun didn’t end at 5pm? What if you could attend a paracon in an actual haunted location? A paranormal weekend that included investigations each night?
