Join the Historical Society of Easton as they welcome the Northeast Paranormal Investigative Society (NPIS) for a history lesson you will not soon forget! NPIS, an established Connecticut based paranormal investigative team which specializes in conducting research and scientific analysis of historical venues has been invited by several historical societies from Milford, Wilton, Simsbury, North Haven and Cheshire among others throughout the Northeast of the United States to record activity in their historical residences and report their findings.
Easton has long been the destination for many enthusiasts seeking evidence of unexplained activity especially in Union Cemetery. During the fall 2013, the Historical Society of Easton invited NPIS to investigate the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead for paranormal activity. Using sophisticated equipment to record the voices of spirits known as EVP and capture data they then compare their results to the known history of the house. On Sunday March 16th, 2014 NPIS will present their findings from the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead and other investigations conducted at various historic sites throughout Connecticut with a special video presentation. Adam Shefts, Founder, Director and Investigator of NPIS will share his team’s scientific exploration, approach and analysis. The video presentation will be shown on Sunday, March 16th, at the Easton Racquet Club, 36 Wimbledon Lane, Easton from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Adam Shefts, author of the successful book “When Ghosts Appear, History Speaks” will present their film and recordings and lead the discussion that is certain to follow. Explaining the unknown is what the Northeast Paranormal Investigative Society documents through their use of technology and effective scientific methods – documenting paranormal activity and correlating the evidence found with the location’s history.
An admission fee of $10 per non-member and $5 per member will be charged to support further Historical Society programing.

Step into Easton’s past as we celebrate autumn with a special Open House at the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead.
Lisa Burghardt, an Easton resident, will demonstrate spool knitting and lead children of all ages to create bracelets and potholders using this easy to use knitting tool. The barn will be open with docent Harry Audley showing a treasure trove of antique farm tools and describing their various uses critical to farmers in centuries past. At the barn, children can draw water from a hand pump and grind corn into meal as part on this hands-on experience. Docents will be available for tours of the house and you are welcome to stroll through the garden and grounds of the Homestead overlooking the Aspetuck Reservoir.
