Chesy center to get spot on TV show

CHESAPEAKE — A local ghost story will get national coverage when a cable network presents a show on the Chesapeake Community Center.

“My Ghost Story” is currently filming a segment on the alleged paranormal activity at the center to be shown on the Biography cable show this fall.

“We sent evidence that we captured to (the producers),” said David Maynard of Quest Paranormal Investigations, Inc. “I didn’t expect to hear anything. But a few weeks later I heard from them.”

For years the center, once a school in the Chesapeake district, has been the focus of paranormal sightings. So much so that Quest Paranormal conducts monthly ghost hunts on the first Saturday of each month and the last weekend in October.

“There is quite a bit of evidence, all kinds of evidence,” Maynard said. “The place is haunted. I can’t tell you what but there is something in the building. I think one of them is a child. One is an adult male, possibly an employee. And something in the basement that is just not nice.”

During the monthly hunts Maynard has taken video evidence that shows shadowing images darting through the halls. He also has an audio of a small child humming.

Besides the public hunt individuals can schedule private hunts by contacting Maynard wat 550-9878. There is a minimum of eight for a private hunt. All money from the hunts goes to the center’s ongoing remodeling projects.

    they should visit the house at 2510 s. 12th st in Ironton for a real haunted house. I lived there in the 50′s and early 60′s. Me and my sister still talk about the going ons there. I still have dreams (nightmares) about that house.
