Ghost hunts must be scheduled two (2) weeks in advance so we may schedule someone to let you into the estate and provide safety assurance.
No "last minute" hunts can be permitted because of limited volunteer availability and the necessity of pre-payment.
NEWS: The estate will host a fundraiser for the MS Society this August 19th.
The event is being run by Ray Goosby. For more information please visit the Facebook page for the event by clicking here.
UPDATE: From February 2017 onward we are going to strictly enforce pre-payment donations for ghost hunts. Deposits MUST be made within the first 10 days of scheduling your hunt and payment in FULL MUST be received for your hunt 2 weeks prior to the date of the hunt. Payments via cash at the door will NO LONGER be accepted.
GHOST HUNTS AT PROSPECT PLACE ARE FUNDRAISING ACTIVITIES FOR OUR 501(C)(3) ORGANIZATION.
AS OF 1 JANUARY 2017 WE ARE ABLE TO TAKE DONATIONS AT THE ESTATE (ON SITE) VIA CREDIT CARD (Mag stripe cards only). WE WILL CONTINUE NOT TO TAKE CREDIT CARD DONATIONS OVER THE PHONE HOWEVER.

IT IS AND CONTINUES TO BE THE POLICY OF THE ADAMS CENTER NOT TO ALLOW THE RESELLING (SCALPING) OF "TICKETS" TO ANY GHOST HUNT OR EVENT AT THE PROSPECT PLACE ESTATE. AS A 501(c)(3) ORGANIZATION WE ARE NOT EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH SALES TAX WHICH OUTSIDE AGENCIES WOULD BE REQUIRED TO PAY. FURTHERMORE WE WILL NOT ENTER INTO CONTRACTS WITH FOR PROFIT COMPANIES ATTEMPTING TO PROFIT FROM OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS. OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS OFTEN DO NOT OFFER INSURANCE TO COVER PATRONS AND OUR INSURANCE WILL NOT COVER OUTSIDE ORGANIZATIONS OR THEIR CUSTOMERS. IF YOU CHOSE TO GHOST HUNT AT THE ESTATE YOU MUST MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS DIRECTLY THROUGH THIS WEBSITE WITH THE ADAMS CENTER. IF YOU HAVE MADE ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY ANOTHER PARTY WE CANNOT HONOR THOSE PAYMENTS OR ARRANGEMENTS. WE DO OUR OWN FUNDRAISING AND DO NOT NEED THE ASSISTANCE OF ANY OUTSIDE FOR PROFIT ORGANIZATION TO DO THIS. ANY SELLING OF "TICKETS" BY SUCH COMPANIES OR ORGANIZATIONS IS AGAINST THE POLICIES OF THE ADAMS CENTER AND MAY BE A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL TAX LAWS.
We just wanted to make everyone aware, again, that George lives on the premises at Prospect Place. Even if George did not live there we would still need to have someone on the premises at all times during a ghost hunt for insurance reasons (and the rest of the time for security and maintenance reasons). Most places have security guards or staff members which watch and often accompany the hunters throughout the night. George is not invasive and it is not the policy of the Adams Center to be invasive during your hunt. You are left to your devices throughout the night and George is there in case you need him for an emergency such as a medical issue (we have an automatic electronic defibrillator as well which many places do not).
There are only four rooms which are closed to hunters. Obviously the caretakers three room apartment and the hazmat / shop room upstairs where drastically nasty chemicals used in the restoration of the building are stored.
We believe that, overall, we have a ghost hunt model which is superior to all the rest in the privacy and safety which it offers. Not only is there someone available for emergencies who will not interfere with your hunt but the house is safe compared to other facilities where you may have flaking lead based paint and asbestos in the air (all hazardous materials were removed from Prospect Place many years ago).
We thank you for your understanding and your continued support.
*Due to the volunteer nature of our staff there is often nobody in the office to answer phones. Please leave a message on voicemail and we will return your call or text you as soon as possible. We are not available to check phones on the weekends.
** We monitor email from mobile devices and it is the quickest way to obtain a response.
