Peter Ghrist, the school resource officer for Griffith High School, has led the Griffith High School Paranormal Society since its inception in 2013. Since then the group has done more than 50 investigations in places renowned for their paranormal activity.
Lake of the Red Cedars Museum, Franklin School, Old Lake County Jail, Buckley Homestead, Old Lake County Courthouse, Redar Road, Gypsy’s Graveyard, Inn at Aberdeen, the 1859 Wolcott House and more are among the group’s regular haunts.
It started out with 50 members five years ago and now averages up to 100 members every year. The group is open to those age 15 and older.
