Conner Hawkins, Daniel Klaes and Cameron Daboin are in the ghost business and they say business is booming at Statler City.

They are members of The Greater Western New York Paranormal Society. They say they have made contact with at least 15 spirits at the old hotel.

The investigators believe they have had conversations with one spirit which they have recorded. They say that one of the members of their group had a rock thrown at him by what they can only assume was a spirit.

In its glory days, the Statler Hotel welcomed famous folks like Elvis Presley, Al Capone and Richard Nixon. The investigators give tours. They expected the tours would be popular at Halloween, but they have been such a success they are now offering the tours year round.

The investigators will also hosting what they are calling the "area's largest psychic fair" on Sunday, February 21st. More information about the tours and the upcoming Psychic Fair ontheir website.
