Experience the Deering Estate at Cutler Overnight at the Deering Estate ''Spookover'' On May 17th


In partnership with the League of Paranormal Investigators, the Deering Estate at Cutler offers a variety of Ghost Tours and Paranormal Investigations. At the Deering Estate "SPOOKOVER" on Friday, May 17th, from 11:00 pm to 4:00 am, guests can experience the Deering Estate at Cutler overnight when the lights are out! The League of Paranormal Investigators (LPI) will take guests on a Paranormal Investigation of the historic houses and main grounds. Equipment used to detect spectral presences - such as pendulums, dowsing rods, EMF meters, voice recorders and cameras are welcome!

Participants will now be able to use KII meters - one of the most effective and interactive tools used for paranormal investigations! LPI will provide KII meters and guests can carry the handheld device throughout the property. Bright lights on the KII meter indicate that there is possible spirit energy nearby. The devices are also used during investigations to help ask and get answers instantly to "yes" or "no" questions when a spirit is believed to be present.

This is not a sleepover; guests will investigate and participate in activities all night. Please dress comfortably. Bring your own flashlight, mosquito repellant and any equipment you wish to use. A light breakfast will be served. Tour may contain mature subject matter.

Tickets can be purchased online for an additional fee or by calling the Deering Estate Ticket Office at 305-235-1668 ext. 233.

Ghost Tours are offered from October through May at the Deering Estate at Cutler. For private tours or your own overnight paranormal experience, please contact the Deering Estate at Cutler Visitor Services Office at 305-235-1668 ext. 242.
