SRU’s Old Stone Hours offers boo-tiful summer program

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa - Those who enjoy an “eerie” feeling may want to join one of the Center for Paranormal Study and Investigation’s reviews of Slippery Rock University’s Old Stone House planned this spring and summer.

The ghost hunting sessions are at 8:30 p.m. at the museum, one of Butler County’s most recognized landmarks. Sessions are April 13, May 19, June 22, July 21, Aug 17, Sept. 29 and Oct 19.

The sessions will reveal what goes on at the Old Stone House after dark and what may be lurking at the former inn and tavern built in 1822.

A team of CPSI professional ghost hunters will conduct the sessions using the latest ghost-hunting equipment. The CPSI is a local, non-profit group that dedicates its time and resources seeking truth in the paranormal.

The evenings will include a pre-session tour of the Old Stone House at 8 p.m.

Cost is $15 per person. Advance ticket purchase is required. To purchase a ticket call 724.738.4964. Tickets are non-refundable.

Aaron Cowen, assistant professor of history at SRU, is the museum’s curator.

The Old Stone House is located at the junction of routes 8, 173, and 528.
