Sweetheart’s Ghost Hunt
Haunted New Harmony is excited to announce a new venue. In February we will be hosting a Sweetheart’s Ghost Hunt at the famously haunted Ribeyre Gymnasium.

The Ribeyre Gymnasium was only one year old when it was utilized for an event that would forever change its history. After a devastating F5 tornado swept through the nearby town of Griffin, killing 52 people, New Harmony offered to let them use the gym as a temporary morgue. Bodies were carried into the basement until their relatives could claim them. Since that tragic event, strange occurrences have been reported there.
Young children have been witnessed racing across the gymnasium and up the bleachers before disappearing into thin air. People often hear conversations in empty rooms and feel cold drafts waft past with no explanation.

After a delicious lasagna dinner and a brief presentation, we will divide into three groups and investigate the gymnasium, annex building, and the basement.
Even though this is the Sweetheart’s Ghost Hunt, you don’t need to have a sweetheart to attend. Come alone or bring a friend. This will be a traditional paranormal investigation, led by experienced investigators in a haunted location we haven’t yet explored.
The building is heated and has public restrooms.
The cost of this event is $50 per person, with half of the proceeds going directly back to the location. Because this event will sell out, tickets are non-refundable. If the event is canceled, full refunds will be given. If you are traveling a long distance and are worried about weather issues, please contact me and we can discuss it. I will work with you.
Check back with us for future events!
Haunted New Harmony Ghost Walks are a fun and enlightening way to learn about the history and the hauntings in this intriguing town. Enjoy a 90-minute stroll through the streets of New Harmony where we’ll stop outside the haunted locations and discuss the activity and the reasons why the location is haunted. Ghost Walks are $15 per person.
Normally, we hold walks every Friday and Saturday night, but since the weather has turned rather chilly, we’ll be doing them on request. Regular walks will resume again in May. If you’d like to take a Ghost Walk and have a group of five or more, contact Joni Mayhan at Jonimayhan@gmail.com to set one up.
