ROCKFORD- An upcoming episode of the popular Syfy Channel program 'Ghost Hunters' will feature Rockford's Tinker Cottage Museum. The episode will air on October 24th at 8pm.
Production Company Pilgrim Studios filmed the episode, entitled "Fear Factory," which features paranormal investigators Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni, Britt Griffith and Adam Berry.
Cottage Museum has been a rumored spot for ghosts, and the museum even offers a
popular 'Ghost Tour.' "Any museum
in order to survive needs to have people to support it," Board President Ruth
Little says, "and 'support it' means donors and members, but also people that
go and come to see through the house. We
do have paranormal tours that have been very popular."
The Museum will celebrate by having a public viewing of the episode at Veteran's Memorial Hall, 211 North Main Street, Rockford, IL on Oct. 24th. The doors will open at 5:30 PM, and will include speakers and presentations before the episode airs. Admission is $5.
