PORTLAND, Tenn. (WTVF) - This time of year we like to get scared but for a Tennessee paranormal group, Halloween is just the beginning.
"So it all kind of stemmed off of me being a child and having activity in my home," said paranormal investigator, Matthew Feole. "I remember waking up one night in my home. The bathroom door slammed open and I see a shadow figure, probably 7-feet tall standing in my bathroom."
Now Feole spends a lot of his life researching the dead. He's the founder of Gateway Paranormal in Portland, Tennessee.
"You have to have a very open mind," he said.
Kendall Masters is the site director at Historic Rose Mont, built in 1842.
"Nights that I work late in my office, I'll hear a door shut upstairs and people walking around," she said.
They each have their own theories. For some, no amount of evidence will do. But all agree by researching the past, they're keeping history alive.
If you would like to learn more about Rose Mont and paranormal investigating, Gateway Paranormal and Rose Mont will be hosting events at the historic home on October 26-27. You can see how death was honored and remembered in the 1870s and hear about the occupants who now -- supposedly -- walk the property.
