NOTE: Beginning May 4th, the Governor of Indiana introduced a schedule for re-opening the state. We will begin allowing investigations again, but will continue to limit each group to approximately 10 people per investigation. Scheduled investigation dates may be subject to change if the state imposes strict travel guidelines. We will work to make every effort to accommodate changes if they should arise.

The Historic Fowler Theater is known for its beautifully restored Art Deco look and feel, but beyond the ornate, outward appearance, there is a history of mysterious noises, shadows and strange activity.

The old Benton County Jail once held Jacob Nelling, a man accused of brutally murdering at 15 year old girl. Jacob never got his time in court as a group of men decided his fate after storming the jail and dragging him to a short distance from the home of the murdered girl where he was hanged for all to see.
