Some of the paranormal claims include full apparitions, foot steps, voices, mysterious smoke, and drum noises. Jason and Steve lead this investigation (Grant is absent from this particular episode) along with help of Amy, Kris, Britt, and Tango. Although I missed Grant, the rest of the cast did a great job. I think Kris and Amy do a nice job on counter balancing all the testosterone on the show.
Fort Ticonderoga proves to be a worthwhile endeavor for the TAPS team. As always, the team tries to debunk as much as possible but they were still left with some unexplainable evidence. I don't want to give anything away, but this is definitely an episode worth checking out. I can't wait to see what else Season 6 of Ghost Hunters has in store for us. As they say on the show, on to the next!

Jason Hawes, 38, and Grant Wilson, 35, the lead paranormal investigators who spent parts of Monday and Tuesday scouring the building with sensitive audio and visual equipment to capture anything out of the norm. Their investigation will be documented in an episode of "Ghost Hunters" in April, according to Galdieri.
They arrived in several black SUVs, a camera crew in tow along with fellow investigators.
"We're there to separate fact from fiction," he said.
Hawes quickly pointed out that not everything is haunted. A glass moving on its own, for instance, doesn't mean it's haunted. It's paranormal, he said. Now if a ghost is moving the glass — then it's haunted, he said.
Hawes and Wilson said their job is to try to give the home or business owner some peace of mind. They have two goals: to capture any activity deemed paranormal, and to come up with a natural or normal reason for it.
That unexplained bump in the night might be noises made by bad plumbing, for example.
"We're careful with how we present (information)," Wilson said. "We're skeptics ourselves."
They said about 80 percent of their investigations result in natural explanations. The other 20 percent, however, have involved objects moving on their own, bed sheets hovering above the mattress. They investigated the Union County Courthouse in New Jersey and said they encountered a spectral image of a woman wearing a shawl who turned a corner and disappeared into the hall of records.

The reality television show “Ghost Hunters” has reached agreement with Preston to film at the former Norwich Hospital property, the program’s supervising producer said last week.
Supervising Producer Matthew Meltzer said an agreement between the town’s attorney and production company Pilgrim Films Television was signed and is being sent to Preston for final signatures. He declined to say when filming would begin, as he doesn’t want a crowd.
“The Norwich State Hospital’s reputation as a haunted location is pretty well known in New England,” Meltzer said.
This year’s series has 25 episodes beginning March 3. Meltzer said he believes the Preston segment would be one hour long. He does not know yet when it would air.
First Selectman Robert Congdon said the filming has pluses and minuses.
“It brings attention to the site,” he said. “From a marketing standpoint, it may help some that more people know about the site.”
But Congdon said it may also make it harder to keep people out of unsafe buildings.

“The Silver Shadow investigation is one that became very emotional for me,” he recalls. “I wasn’t expecting it, but the little house and the story of the young child who died there kind of pulled at the heartstrings. Being a father and having children myself, any time there’s a report of an apparition or the spirit of a child being left behind, it’s always something I focus on and see if there is anything I can do to get that spirit to come forward. And more importantly, to urge it to move on from that place.
“As much as I enjoy documenting paranormal activity, I’m not there to leave the place haunted, especially if it’s something like that. When that little shadow kind of stepped out and showed itself, it definitely scared me quite a bit. Again, I wasn’t expecting it and it really startled me. However, I did stay there and try to speak to it further about how to move on.
“The thing is, I look at ghost hunting as more of a spiritual thing, and to have witnessed as well as captured firsthand evidence of some sort of afterlife or spirit world, is especially gratifying for me. Also, on a personal level, to be able to reach out to the spirit of that child hopefully made a difference. I really hope that the little guy found his way out of there.

When Tamsen Cornell’s teenage daughter sat down with her father Sunday to watch a marathon of her favorite show, she did so with a freshly penned autograph from one of the stars.
Cornell, museum director of Orleans Historical Society, doesn’t usually brush up against fame but in the past week two television crews have set up in the society’s museum on River Road.
“It was very exciting,” said Cornell, who is thrilled some of the artifacts in the building will get a wider audience. “We’ll see if it draws any tourists.”
The crew from the Sci-Fi channel’s “Ghost Hunters” did an interview with historian Bonnie Snow at the society last Friday after spending an evening looking for ghosts at the Orleans Inn. Snow wasn’t as star struck as the Cornells when she met Kris Williams, a paranormal researcher from the show.
Since she didn’t know anything about the ghosts, Snow ended up telling the “Ghost Hunter” group numerous nuggets of Orleans history. But, she said with a laugh, she is certain they are going to end up on the cutting room floor.
Cornell said the ghost hunters were looking for more information on the three ghosts said to haunt the inn. There are only first names of the two men and a woman who died there. One, Hannah, was a lady of the night when the inn was used as a brothel in the 1920s. She was murdered in front of the inn.

ORLEANS — Investigators from the Syfy Channel show "Ghost Hunters" have
checked out reports of ghosts at the 1875 Orleans Inn on Town Cove.
A show about the inn will air sometime in the program's sixth season, which begins March 3, a Syfy spokeswoman said Thursday.
Among the inn's ghosts are Hannah, a streetwalker in the 1920s; Fred, a bartender in the 1950s; and Paul, a dishwasher in the 1970s; along with a few cat ghosts, according to owner Ed Maas' book, "Ghost of the Orleans Inn." Michael Belcher of the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce attracted the Syfy Channel's attention to the inn. The chamber's membership director said he is not among the show's viewers but said his wife watches every Wednesday night.
In the first week of this month, a crew of 25 people from the show spent four days at the inn, Maas said.
