Paranormal investigation at the historic Cohen Bray House
The beautiful Stick-style home was built in 1882-1884 by Julia Moses and Watson A. Bray for their daughter Emma, upon her marriage to Alfred H. Cohen, attorney. The families of both the bride and groom were wealthy and socially prominent. Watson Bray was a successful commodities broker while A. A. Cohen had established the first railroad and ferry system in Alameda County. He also served as chief attorney for the Central Pacific Railroad.
The house has never been sold out of the family and contains the original furniture, wallpaper, woodwork, and many personal objects. It also holds the spirits of several family members and at least one person who worked on the property.
Join veteran investigator Jim Martin from Hauntology Productions / Spirit Realm Network as he leads us through the three stories of the historic home. Participants will learn about capturing audio and video evidence. Alternative methods of spirit communication, such as dowsing rods and pendulums will also be explored, as well as popular smartphone apps.
There's also a snack break, where everyone can chat and share experiences.
Ghostly activity during previous investigations includes "shadow people," footsteps, knocking, tugged-at clothing, electromagnetic field disturbances, and plentiful Electronic Voice Phenomena.
