Archive of the Afterlife

Recently, while I was on the road, I spent some time in Moundsville, West Virginia.  The name should be familiar to those interested in the paranormal as the town is home to the massive Moundsville Prison, a hotbed of haunting activity.

But the next time you're in town for travel or investigation, there's another interesting spot you should check out, and it's right down the street from the infamous prison.  It's called "The Archive of the Afterlife."

Paranormal related museums are few and far between.  There are some interesting private collections of course and everyone's aware that John Zaffis has quite a collection stored in the northeast, but public displays are something I'm hoping to see more of as interest in the paranormal continues to grow each year.

Paranormal investigator and enthusiast Steve Hummel has been working hard to gather items from a wide range of locations and build a "National Museum of the Paranormal."
Right now, it's small but these things take time to build, and Steve's off to a good start.  He already has a chair full of haunted dolls, and in fact, when we visited, he had just acquired a new one.  There's also a wall of crosses that he's actively adding to and of course, there are items from Moundsville prison along with plenty of other surprises.

Steve is a gracious host and is happy to fill you in on the details about any of the items on display.  You can even investigate the museum after hours if you're so inclined.  Details are on the web page.

So, next time you're passing through Moundsville, please stop in and show your support.  For details on the museum, check out the website below, and watch the FB page for updates on new items.
