Photos: Haunted history tour of Frankford

From the Frankford CDC:

Frankford is full of history, but did you know some of it is haunted?

Last Saturday, the Frankford Community Development Corporation, Historical Society of Frankford, St. Mark’s Church, South Jersey Ghost Research, the Grand Army of the Republic Museum and Library, and the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route Association organized a haunted history tour of Frankford.

Several of the participating organizations have been previously visited by the South Jersey Ghost Research, a group of investigators that conducts discreet investigations and field research using the latest scientific methods and tools as well as psychic investigators. Their findings at the tour sites have been documented through photos and sound recordings.

Frankford CDC regularly organizes special events as part of its mission to revitalize the Frankford Avenue commercial corridor and its surrounding neighborhood. To celebrate Halloween, FCDC turned to its community partners to provide an interesting and fun way to learn about Frankford’s rich history by visiting neighborhood landmarks such as St. Marks Church, the Grand Army of the Republic Museum and Library, and the Historical Society – and hearing firsthand about hauntings that have taken place in and around those buildings.

“Our goal is to spotlight just how special our neighborhood is, and in the process we hope to draw individuals and families from throughout the Philadelphia area, so that they too can see all that Frankford has to offer,” said Michelle Feldman, Commercial Corridor Manager and Special Events Coordinator for the Frankford CDC. “Frankford’s unique and fascinating history is just one of the many wonderful assets our neighborhood possesses, and we believe our tour will show just that.”
