Letting the Mystery Save the History

Welcome To Fort Mifflin

The paranormal community came together over the past weekend to help raise money for educational programs at Ft. Mifflin in Philadelphia. Some of the celebrities that joined in the effort included Jason Hawes, Grant Wilson, Kris Williams, Dave Tango, Steve Gonsalves, Gavin Cromwell, John Zaffis, Tom & Dave Jones of Para-X Radio, and your very own hosts of The Paranormal View – Henry and Beth.

Ft. Mifflin is one of many historic sites scraping for funding in these tight times. I’m happy that they, and several other landmarks like them, have embraced their haunted reputation and graciously accepted the support that has been offered them. I just wish that more places would open up to the opportunities that come along with allowing the mystery of a site to draw visitors every bit as much, if not more, than the history of the location alone.

Ft. Mifflin is a success story of the partnership between paranormal enthusiasts and historic rescue efforts. If your site or one you know is hurting for dollars, have you considered how much the ghosts and legends of the landmark could help you? Think about it and get back to me – I’ll get you in touch with the right people!
