Ghost Investigation at Oakland's Pardee Home Museum
Our first two Ghost Investigations were so successful and everyone had such a good time that we decided to do it again. Bring your digital recorders, cameras, EMF meters, or just your curiosity to the Pardee Home Museum for a rare opportunity to hunt ghosts in this historic home! Once again we will have séances conducted by a third-generation psychic!  This time we will also have a Ouija Board set up with an experienced user so you can try out a new technique.

Karen Zimmerman, a professional ghost investigator and author, and her staff will lead the search for evidence of spirits within the Pardee Home Museum.  Karen's published a book - Ghost Stories and Legends of Alameda, Berkeley, and Oakland - that contains an entire chapter on the Pardee Home.  In her several investigations at the museum she has recorded a number of EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). Her latest book, "The Psychic Next Door: Ordinary People With Extraordinary Powers" will be available. It includes a chapter on Claire Coustier, who will be conducting the seances during the investigation.  As with our last investigation, Karen will be providing an investigation kit including a personal pendulum each person will be trained on using.

Three generations of the same family lived and died in the Pardee Home from the time of its completion in 1869 until the death of Miss Helen Pardee in 1982. The house has been preserved exactly how it was when Miss Helen made her final exit.


This is a fund-raising event for the Pardee Home Museum.

We are limiting the group to 18 people to improve the experience for everyone involved. Much of the investigation will be "in the dark" so be sure to bring a flashlight. There will be some light coming through the windows from outside so the rooms will not be in complete darkness.

As we do not allow people to sit on our historical furniture everyone will be expected to either sit on the floor, on a personal pillow or small portable seat they bring with them.  A very limited number of chairs may be available for those who need them.

The house is multi-story. We do have an ADA qualified lift to allow access to the main floor.  The second and the top tower floors are only accessible by narrow staircases. No further accommodations are available to allow people unable to climb the stairs to reach these upper levels.

The group will be split into up to three subgroups to cycle everyone throughout the house to maximize investigation of each floor or area.  The groups would be cycled between the main floor, second floor and the tower room séances.  This time we are planning to also have the Ouija Board investigation in the Carriage House if people would like to do that instead of the séance.

Please dress warmly if it is cold outside as we do not turn the house heater on. Also, please wear rubber soled shoes to minimize the noise as you walk around.  Similarly, no "clanking jewelry" or perfume so as not to scare away anyone or anything that may be nearby, and so as to not conflict with any personal experiences or recorded evidence.

This is an event for adults 18 years of age or older.  Each person attending must have purchased a ticket.

Recommended ghost hunting equipment includes a digital or film camera, tape or digital recorder, dowsing rods, pendulums, K2 and other EMF meters and any other equipment you care to use that does not disturb the experience of the other participants.

At some time midway through our investigations we will take a break to discuss what we have all experienced.  Our volunteers will provide everyone some food and drinks at that time.  The homemade treats really were a hit during our first two events and I am sure you will find them tasty as well.

Please note that Karen and her staff have generously offered their service to the Pardee Home for this investigation.  All of the money for the ticket price of $50 will go to the Pardee Home.  Ticket sales will stop 6 hours prior to our event.
