TAPS to Hunt Ghosts at Conn. Mental Hospital

Representatives from SyFy have reached an agreement with Preston, Connecticut to film an episode of Ghost Hunters at the Norwich Hospital property, well known in the area to be supposedly haunted. The hospital served the mentally insane until 1996. City officials hope that the hospital's appearance on television will increase publicity for the city.

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.


  1. Jason I was watching Chin on Jan.9th or the 14th where he was filing on a door with crackes in . He said at one point that he thought he saw a face. You never showed it to the clinet. I also saw it. I save my recording and watched that peices over and over. And saw it each time. I know it was there. I have had some experences with the paranormal. I enjoy your shows..

  2. @Anonymous The "face" was debunked by the GHI team. It was just a tarp moving in the wind. Also, Jason is with the TAPS team, Barry leads up the GHI team.
