PEORIA — A paranormal search of the Peoria State Hospital at Bartonville will be held 7 p.m. Oct. 23 by the Illinois Ghost Seekers Society.

The local organization will perform a private paranormal investigation of the former state asylum.

The area landmark, also known as the Bowen Building, has been reopened and the ghost seekers society event will allow the curious to conduct their own investigations into whether the former state asylum is haunted.

Tour goers will have the opportunity to interview the owners of the Bowen Building, interview paranormal investigators, and stay for a personalized paranormal investigation with Illinois Ghost Seekers during this Halloween season.

Illinois Ghost Seekers Society is the only officially registered not-for-profit paranormal business within Central and downstate Illinois. We are a real business helping people confidentially in the community.
