Paranormal researcher Vince Wilson operates this cottage and attraction that offers ghost tours, paranormal research training, and seances. The school is said to educate pupils on the history of ghosts starting with the first known hauntings in ancient Babylonia. It is called the Booth House because John Wilkes Booth is said to have stayed here, and it is believed to be haunted.

    1. I’m currently sitting 10 feet away from the haunted cottage. It is very real.. Extremely legit. My best friend lives next door and they’ve seen all kinds of stuff through the windows.
