Amity Hall

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Amity Hall

Although the Amity Hall burned to the ground in the late 2000s, it was alleged to be extremely active with the haunts. A man was said to have killed his wife by stabbing her on the porch sofa, then killed his children and himself upstairs. Apparitions, black figures and flashes of light have been spotted, and some witnesses claim to have seen reenactments of the grisly murder.

  1. The location could still have every bit as high of residual energy levels now as there may habeen before the building was demolished as paranormal energies do often mobilize. If they are not just visitors or angels randomly appearing to get a bird’s eye view of loved ones they left behind. It’s those that are here more permanently that I believe we’re burdened enough to interrupt their transition into eternity and therefore, they do not typically realize that they are deceased as they roam about carrying out the life routines after life as they had during life. I would love to take small group to conduct an investigation and possibly shoot some video for production in any home, structure, farm, business in Pennsylvania. We have begun Goin’ Ghostal in 2021 and welcome any and all leads and invitations. Email me, Joshy Cox, or, or reach me by phone and please leave a message (717) 320-4999
