Halloween Weekend Seance/Overnight Investigation @ Batcheller Mansion Inn

Feeling brave as the veil thins

between the worlds this Halloween?

Investigate the Haunted and Historical

Batcheller Mansion Inn of Saratoga


Springs, NY this October with

the Albany Paranormal

Research Society!


Nestled in the heart of Saratoga Springs, New York and surrounded by rich history lays the Batcheller Mansion Inn, a stately and renowned Saratoga landmark and truly one of the great Victorian homes in America. Built by the Albany architectural firm of Nichols & Halcott in 1873, it was home to George Sherman Batcheller, a Civil War Union veteran turned prominent political figure and his family for many years. The Batchellers also welcomed many famous friends into their home located on Circular Street including President Ulysses S Grant.

The home has gone through many changes over the years and today has been restored to its original brilliance and sits as the “Crown Jewel “of Saratoga Springs, NY. The Batcheller Mansion Inn has been featured on HGTV’s Front Door Series for its Victorian architecture and was used as the filming location for the motion picture thriller “The Skeptic”.

With so much history and character do George Batcheller, his family and friends still roam the halls of their splendid home years later?

Tales of supernatural experiences have been shared by the Batcheller Mansion Inn’s staff and guests alike. The Albany Paranormal Research Society (APRS), a proud TAPS Family member had the pleasure of investigating the location previously with many results of evidence captured and personal experiences.

      The investigation itself is not a stand alone event. If you want to attend the seance only there were limited spaces available for that but if you wish to participate in the investigation you will need to book a room package through the Batcheller Mansion Inn
