    1. what hotels are closest to selma mansion and can you send directions from baltimore md-we are planning to be there in May-Dead of Night Paranormal

    2. I live on the same block as Selma Mansion. I can attest that there are current renovations / restoration going on, but lights that look like candles can be seen in the upper windows at all hours of the night.

    3. Stayed overnight at Selma a couple years ago. I was able to get 2 EVP’s in the basement, one with a man groaning and the other was a mans voice saying, “Get Out!” I was asking questions and that was his answer! Creepy! Also, I was with my daughter at the top of the servant stairs shinning my flashlight down them. I turned to my daughter, it was pitch dark and I could see the dark outline of her body so began talking with her. After a few minutes I heard my daughter say, “Mom, who are you talking to?” The whole time she was behind me across the room. This completely was the best experience I ever had anywhere! To know I saw a black apparition standing in front of me was amazing! We loved Selma!

      Looked at photos on Facebook, saw a young girl in the window (spirit) and a man with a beard ( spirit) floating just his upper body in what I think was a kitchen. You see as a child I walked past that house after School. It always felt like a strong male energy was there, like a controlling man. My chest gets like a heavy feeling looking at some photos. That house is haunted but we need to respect it’s history.

    5. Does anyone know if Selma still allows Paranormal Investigations. If so please give me the contact info. Was there years ago and would like to go back. Thanks

      • You can book investigations through the Norristown Preservation Society who manage the site. They charge $50 per person with a minimum of 2 people. I strongly recommend keeping the group fairly small. I’ve investigated there with 3 other people twice now and, since it’s not really that large, that’s a good size. Write to to arrange an investigation.

        Oh, and, yes, it is a good place to investigate. Got a lot of Ghost Box responses and very good dowsing rod interaction on my last visit 3 weeks ago.
