Coventry, CT – Join us for an evening of paranormal education and exploration with one of the top experts in the field, as Seaside Shadows presents An Evening with the Haunted Collector, John Zaffis. On Saturday, August 6th, John will guide guests through the historic Nathan Hale Homestead, birthplace to America’s first hero. Guests will review techniques of investigation with the “Godfather of the Paranormal” himself and embark on a journey to determine which items may be causing the frequent ghostly sightings at the Homestead. A full paranormal investigation will take place and guests will interact firsthand in the Haunted Collector’s exploration.
John has been nicknamed “The Godfather of the Paranormal” for his expertise in the world of hauntings over the past 30 years. Having trained with Ed and Lorraine Warren, (his aunt and uncle) as a young man, he gained authentic insight into a world of history and mystery. John dedicated his life to the research of ghosts, the art of spirit communication and scientific proof of the unexplained. In recent years, SyFy’s show, “The Haunted Collector” followed the investigations of Zaffis and his team as they researched relics and items causing unexplained activity in homes, businesses, libraries and more.

About the Nathan Hale Homestead
Nathan Hale Homestead is the birthplace of Connecticut’s State Hero, Nathan Hale, who was hanged as a spy during the Revolutionary War. The house, built in 1776, belonged to Nathan’s parents and family, and is located on the only site he ever called home. Its furnishings include several Hale family possessions and other collections amassed by Connecticut lawyer and philanthropist George Dudley Seymour, who purchased the Homestead in 1914 and began a program of restoration that is largely preserved today. The Hale Homestead is situated on 17 acres, adjoining the 1500-acre Nathan Hale State Forest, lending to the site’s substantial rural character.
