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

The SJGR investigators had a wealth of physical evidence indicating spirit activity in the building. Wpecifically 11.3% of the photos taken contain anomalies. Investigators also received a significant unexplainable temperature drop which is often indicative of spirit activity/presence. Lastly, we did obtain an above average amount of EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) during the investigation.

Based on the evidence obtained on the first trip as well as the evidence obtained on this second trip, we feel that there is some level of spirit activity within the building and/or property. Further research would be required and welcomed in order to obtain further physical evidence/ phsycic impressions to substantiate the spirit activity or further clarify who is there and why.
