SyFy’s Ghost Hunters Return to The Mount for Season Finale

Print Story | Email Story

LENOX, Mass. — SyFy’s hit show "Ghost Hunters" will conclude its current season with a trip back to The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, to investigate reports of increased paranormal activity since TAPS last visited in 2008. The episode entitled “1st Edition Apparition” will air on the SyFy channel on Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 9 p.m.

According to Rebecka McDougall, communication director for The Mount, the TAPs team contacted her last November to film a follow up to their previous investigation five years earlier. At that time, the Ghost Hunters felt the evidence was inconclusive. The 2008 visit was aired as the third episode of season five of the popular show and can be viewed on YouTube. The team returned to The Mount in December of 2014 for a total of three days.

“The findings from their investigation are confidential, the only person who knows what they found is Robert Oakes, a tour guide who worked directly with the team while they were here,” McDougall said.


Oakes, who has been leading ghost tours for the past four years, said it was "fantastic" to welcome the team back.

“There have been so many reports of strange activity at the estate since their last visit, it isn't surprising they wanted to return. I can't say what they found, but you will certainly want to tune in on November 18," he said.

The Mount has been offering ghost tours of the property since 2009. The ghost tours, recommended for guests 12 and over, are offered in the summer and fall months and consistently sell out. Hot spots for paranormal activity include the second floor of the historic Stable, Wharton’s bathroom on the second floor on the Main House and recently Teddy Wharton’s Den on the first floor. Footsteps, strange sensations, the distinct scents of floral perfume and cigar smoke have all been reported by guests.

LENOX, Mass. — Lenox Memorial High School graduated  61 seniors on the school's campus Sunday surrounded by friends, family, and sunshine.
 
Ceremony speakers focused on the positives that have come out of COVID-19 rather than dwelling on the negatives of the past year and a half.
 
Salutatorian Jenna Codey said she was "dead set against even the slightest mention of COVID-19" when she began to write her speech but could not ignore the transformative experience of living through a pandemic.
 
"For most of my life, the thesaurus of my brain connected the concept of change with words like danger,' vulnerability, and loss. After all, there is comfort in consistency," she said. "As humans, we find safety in what we know. Even the parts of our lives that are inevitably frustrating, boring, or sad are often alright, because we wake up expecting them. If things change, our shield of stability is shattered. ...
