Old Fort Niagara to be Featured on Discovery's 'Ghost Lab'

YOUNGSTOWN, NY (WKBW/RELEASE) - Old Fort Niagara will be featured on an upcoming episode of Discovery Channel’s Ghost Lab airing on October 21 at 10 p.m.

Brad and Barry Klinge, founders of Everyday Paranormal and hosts of Ghost Lab, travel the country using some of the world’s most sophisticated equipment to gather powerful supernatural research. They visited the Fort in May and spent three days investigating reported paranormal activity at the historic site.

“The Fort has endured a long history of tumultuous and tragic death through battle, starvation and disease, making it a ripe location for paranormal investigation,” said Robert Emerson, executive director. “The earliest reported ‘haunting’ was about 1817 according to some records."

“We are looking forward to seeing the results of Brad and Barry’s investigation as many of our employees and overnight guests have experienced unexplained footsteps and doors slamming or witnessed glowing orbs,” added Emerson.

Old Fort Niagara is a National Historic Landmark and State Historic site operated by the Old Fort Niagara Association, a not-for-profit organization, in cooperation with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
