KERNERVILLE, N.C. – More than a month after dozens of investigators with the Southern Paranormal and Anomaly Research society came to Kernersville, the group declared the house known as Korner’s Folly officially haunted.

They said they wanted to figure out if cracks, creaks and creepiness associated with the landmark were from paranormal activity.

“There is paranormal activity here,” Iris Carter, with SPARS, said.

After more than seven hours of investigation and weeks of combing through the evidence, the Southern Paranormal & Anomaly Research Society said there is more to the house than just it's strange past. Once inside, they said their equipment picked up several instances of an electronic voice phenomenon, or EVP.

“We got a really significant EVP. It was probably the best of the evening, that says ‘peek-a-boo,’ and it's a child's voice saying ‘peek-a-boo,’” Carter said.

“Very distinct, it was very clear. So many other EVPs can be interpreted in a certain way, you have to play them back several times. You can play that the first time and actually make out what the words are,” Bruce Frankel, with Korner's Folly, said.

Officials said what made the investigation so unique was the fact that they came back with so much evidence. And they said that's something that doesn't normally happen.

“Not knowing what we would get, we were just kind of going this is a great opportunity for practice if nothing else and to get the number of EVPs that we got, and to get the number of personal experiences,” Carter said. “And the number of things on video that all came together is extremely, extremely rare.”

Investigators said they start out trying to disprove it is something paranormal.

“I think it's very healthy to have to take a skeptical approach because you're going to be very critical of every sort of evidence that you get,” Deonna Kelli Sayed, an investigator with SPARS, said. “If you can't explain something away, then you can probably say with some confidence that it's paranormal.”

And whether you believe in ghosts or not, officials said the attention it brings to the Folly is what's most important from this investigation.

If you're not 100 percent convinced those creaks and moans were actually from a ghost, you can check out the evidence yourself. Officials will hold a forum to look at the recordings and answer questions.
