Gingerbread Sun Inn

By Colleen Ellwood-Surdoval I’m writing this blog entry as the lucky recipient of Discover Lehigh Valley’s Ultimate Paranormal Experience.  As part of this contest, I, along with my sister, Michelle, had the opportunity to join  a supernatural investigation of the Sun Inn in Bethlehem conducted by the good folks at Lights Out Paranormal on Halloween.

Prior to examining the scary haunts of The Sun Inn, we were given a tour of the historical significance of the building.  We learned that the Inn was originally located in the outskirts of town to host visiting guests of the Moravian community in the 18th century.

Hunting ghosts at The Sun Inn

It didn’t take more than five minutes within The Sun Inn for psychic medium Lauri Moore to notice a presence in the corner.

Her first time in the historic building, which was built by the Moravians in 1758, there wasn’t really any way for Moore to know that the corner in question was a hot bed of activity.

HAUNT at Dorney Park

One of the best things about Lehigh Valley during the fall is the haunted attractions leading up to Halloween. It comes as no surprise that the most well-known is Haunt at Dorney Park, where the amusement park transforms into a thrilling and bone-chilling playground for brave souls who can stand a good fright.

After waiting all season for a pleasant-weathered weekend, I was able to go this past Saturday. The park was much more packed then I remembered it being during Haunt the past few years. My guess is that Dorney has really created quite a following since its debut in 2008.

Lehigh Valley is home to plenty of history, including an occasional haunted story or two. This past Friday I was fortunate enough to be invited on Moravian Book Shop’s “Historic Haunts of Downtown Bethlehem” preview tour. The guided walk through the city’s Historic District blends factual information with reported tales of spirits, sightings and odd occurrences that have happened through the years.

I don’t mean for this post to be a teaser, but I’m choosing to omit some of the story details because I really don’t want to spoil the fun until you take the tour for yourself.
