A ghost hunting team was recently allowed into an old hotel in the town I used to live in. Back when I was there that part of the building was condemned and you couldn’t go in. So I never got to go, being that I’m a puss and would never sneak in to such a place. Even now I would like to go in and root around though. I think that modern “ghost hunting” is horse shit, but old places are still cool to look at and creepy to go inside.
My understanding is that they’ve been restoring it in an attempt to save the building as a historical landmark. Which is fine. Last I knew that part of town was a craphole at night, but you can still enjoy it in the daylight, when the creatures of the night wander back to their miserable hovels. It’s a shame that no one took an interest in it before it got so crappy on main street, but what are you going to do? If there’s no money in it the motivation is hard to find. Which brings me back to the ghost hunters. I suspect they were allowed inside to help create some buzz about the possibilities of a new haunted location for people to come dither around in. I think that’s a good idea what with the popularity of the paranormal right now, and they better ride that wave while it lasts because it’s coming to a close.
I’m all for it it it helps save historic sites though.
