This was SJGR's first visit to this historic building in Philadelphia, PA.   The Historical Society of Frankford includes a museum and library in addition to the history of the Northeast Philadelphia neighborhood known as Frankford.  They work to preserve, document, and act as an advocate for the community.

During the course of the investigation, investigators experienced every thing from smells to impressions of celebrity names, much of which was perceived in the basement area.

The physical evidence collected consisted of 4 EVPs and 31 positive photos with energy orb anomalies in them. 2.8% of positive photos obtained falls within the normal range for any location, but some photos correspond to events investigators were experiencing at the time the photo was taken.

Neither anomalous EMF nor temperature readings readings were recorded during this investigation.  However, the motion sensor detected unseen movement in an area without investigators on one occasion.
