CASE INFORMATION AND BACKGROUND

The Marcus Hook Plank Log House is also known as Blackbeard the Pirate's mistress' house. Read the story.

The investigators obtained very limited physical evidence in the form of orb photos. Of the photos taken during our investigation, 3% of them contained energy orbs. This amount is below average for any location, haunted or not. We did obtain a above average amount of EVPs. The investigators that did pick up impressions felt that the basement seemed to have energy in it and an impression of a male spirit was also obtained down there.

Overall we had very limited results but this happens. We are only in a location for a short period of time and many different elements can cause the reported spirit activity to remain dormant while we are there.
