Comer Museum and Arts Center hosts successful paranormal investigation; other museum events being planned


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Alabama Ghost Girls busted through all of the Isabel Anderson Comer Museum and Arts Center last Saturday night, and museum director Judy Green believes the event was both a success as well as a spiritual awakening.

“They are great,” said Green about the Alabama Ghost Girls. “They are very hands-on and they want everybody to ask a lot of questions. They want everybody to be a part of [the experience.]”

The main attraction on Aug. 13 for those in attendance was a discussion with Harriett, a boudoir doll crafted sometime between 1910 to 1940. Using a tipping table, the Ghost Girls asked Harriett questions such as “Are you happy where you are?” and in return the doll asked for a new dress.

The Ghost Girls also revealed during the session which went from 7:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. that they made contact with both Jim Nabors and Jimmy Pursell among others.

According to the Girls, they felt an incredible amount of paranormal activity in the military artifact room.

“There were a lot of positives,” said Green. “Since I hadn’t been through it before, I didn’t know what to expect.”

Green’s admission that she heard multiple voices coming through speakers specialized to pick up paranormal sounds was near the top of the list of things she didn’t expect.

However, hearing from the supernatural was exactly what Green was hoping for, and now she and the museum staff are looking to have the Ghost Girls back again next year.

“It was entertaining,” Green expressed. “We’re thinking about [hosting the Ghost Girls] again sometime around Valentine’s Day next year.”

Those reading might be wondering why Valentine’s Day and not Halloween. That’s because Green and the museum already have a big October coming up including a 40th anniversary celebration on Oct. 22 called “Cheers to Forty Years” which will include food, drinks, and a comedian.
