Find out what goes bump in the night with the Southeastern Institute for Paranormal Research and The Wren’s Nest.
Get ready for Halloween with a unique opportunity to be a part of a ghost hunt, or should we say, “ghost haunt.”
The Wren’s Nest is a stately Queen Anne Victorian home built in the 19th century. It’s typically quiet during the day, except for the occasional tourist. After dark, an other-worldly group of visitors wander through the halls. Two infant boys have been seen playing on the stairs – perhaps the owner’s grandsons who were lost in childhood? A woman frequently entertains in the parlor, but she is not related to the family who lived here. Join her and the team from the Southeastern Institute of Paranormal Research to investigate unexplained activity at The Wren’s Nest.
Investigations will take place each Friday and Saturday in September (Sept. 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 27, and 28) from 7 to 11 p.m. at The Wren’s Nest, 1050 Ralph David Abernathy Blvd SW, Atlanta, GA 30310. Tickets are $50 per person and include dinner and one drink ticket. Additional refreshments are available for purchase. Advanced ticket purchase is required. Tickets can be purchased online at www.wrensnest.org or on Eventbrite.
Investigation classes are limited to 20 guests. Participants will learn how to capture Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), unexplainable audible paranormal events of unknown origin (usually voices or sounds that cannot be attributed to anyone present). EVP can be heard and captured in audio recordings on various types of electronic recording apparatus. The phenomenon has been captured using tape recorders, telephones, answering machines, and a variety of digital audio equipment. Investigations will also try to capture and analyze photos and video encounters with the paranormal..
Participants must be at least 18 years of age.
Those who choose to investigate are required to sign a liability release form.
The Southeastern Institute of Paranormal Research team is made up of like-minded individuals who share an interest in the scientific study of the unknown. While SIPR is an investigative research team that uses technical equipment to collect data from the physical environment, we also utilize psychical research methods. We bring our psychical research team into the investigation “cold.” The team follows strict methods and impressions are collected individually. The data we collect from our psychical research team is often validated through evidence and historical research.

*Note – There will not be an investigation on Saturday, September 21st.
The Wren’s Nest is a cultural center that celebrates the timeless legacy of the Brer Rabbit tales and promotes the art of storytelling in all of its contemporary forms. Originally the home of Joel Chandler Harris, who recorded and published the Brer Rabbit stories in the Atlanta Constitution and in a series of anthologies narrated by Uncle Remus, the home has been preserved in its original state since Harris’ death in 1908.
The museum is open to the public 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, with group tours available throughout the week. Storytelling takes place each Saturday at 1 p.m. and is included in museum admission.
