FOWLER, Ind. (WLFI) — Paranormal investigators are taking over the town of Fowler on Saturday night.

A Lafayette-based paranormal investigation team is exploring the town's most haunted historic locations and they're getting the community involved.

“Freak Out at The Fowler is a paranormal convention and so really we're just wanting to focus on the town of Fowler and bring people here to influx the economy a little bit,” said Tiffany Eakin, 765 Paranormal lead investigator.

765 Paranormal is a paranormal investigation team based in Lafayette. Eakin said Fowler was the perfect location to bring the first convention. One place the team is particularly focusing on is the Fowler Theater.

“They are completely grant-funded and volunteer-run so as you can imagine, they're always needing a little bit of help whenever it comes to that,” said Eakin.

Community members pay to be part of the investigation. Not only are they exploring the theater but the previous Benton County jail and the Opera house.

“This place is haunted and so we've been able to through historical research and investigating be able to validate some of the claims that we have heard here,” said Eakin.

The team started investigating the three locations six months ago. Eakin said they wanted to see if claims were valid before they opened up the investigation to the public.

Fowler Theater Executive Director Jill Bird said she's shocked by the community's interest.

“Started doing the investigations and we've been amazed at the response to how many people are interested in things like this and it's just kind of taken off,” said Bird.

She hopes this event sparks more interest in the town of Fowler.

“We're seeing a lot of people from around the area that probably would never come here before because it's Fowler, you know, they just don't know what we have to offer so we're hoping it gets our name out there and they come back for all the other things we do,” said Eakin.

Addressing if the paranormal claims are true will be up for the community of investigators to decide. The investigation of the three locations is going on from 10 p.m. Saturday to 4 a.m. Sunday.
