Is the Mark Twain House Haunted?

"Ghost Hunters," the Syfy channel’s top-rated show with 3 million viewers nationally, may provide the answer to the question when a special episode on the historic home of America’s great author airs on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 9 pm on Syfy.

The famed Ghost Hunters team conducted a paranormal investigation of The Mark Twain House in Hartford back in September. The Dec. 2 episode will reveal the results of the investigation.

To celebrate the event, The Mark Twain House & Museum is partnering with the new Connecticut Science Center for a special event. On Wednesday, Dec. 2, at 7:30 pm there will be a lecture program in the Connecticut Science Center’s Theater entitled “The Science of the Supernatural” hosted by the Smoking Gun Research Agency.

Connecticut-based Smoking Gun also recently carried on an investigation of the Twain House. They will share the scientific equipment and spiritual techniques they have used at the Twain House and other sites across the state.

During a break after the lecture, guests can visit the bar/concession stand for a drink or snack before the 9 p.m. screening of the Ghost Hunters on the theater’s big screen. There is a suggested donation of $10 for the program that will benefit The Mark Twain House & Museum.

Seating is first-come, first-served. The Connecticut Science Center is located at 250 Columbus Boulevard. Regular parking rates will apply for the event.

In addition, TAPS recently returned to Hartford and conducted a paranormal investigation of The Harriet Beecher Stowe House for an episode that will be broadcast in early 2010.
