A Ghost Gathering in Milford This Saturday http://www.hvinsider.com/articles/a-ghost-gathering-in-milford-this-saturday/ Fri, 27 Jul 2012 21:09:40 +0000 http://www.hvinsider.com/articles/?p=9001 On Saturday July 28th a group of ghost hunters will open their investigation of the 1904 home known as The Columns Museum, located in Milford, Pa, to interested parties.

The folks who operate “The Ghost Gathering” will allow guests to observe and participate in an evening of spooky investigation at the popular historic sight. An earlier visit by the group piqued their interest, as several unexplainable happenings occurred.  Both audio and visual phenomenons were noted and the investigators are geared up for another exciting night.

You can be a part of the investigation, limited to 15 guests, by contacting Nancy Umstead, Director of The Ghost Gathering at info@theghostgathering.com. Admission for the evening is $40.

Interested parties may also call 570-296-8126 for more information.

The Columns Museum is open Wed. Sat and Sun., from 1-4 and will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 1-4 in July and August.  Call us at 570-296-8126, or visit our website at www.pikecountyhistoricalsociety.org.


Pike County Historical Society to Offer Dinner and a Movie http://www.hvinsider.com/articles/pike-county-historical-society-to-offer-dinner-and-a-movie/ Tue, 20 Dec 2011 22:35:38 +0000 http://www.hvinsider.com/articles/?p=5903 On Friday January 13th the Pike County Historical Society, will present another installment in the “Aunt Marge’s Movie Lounge” series.  This casual evening in the Columns’ Foundation Room offers a home cooked meal, the screening of a movie which was a favorite of the Museum Director’s much beloved and quirky Aunt Marge, and dessert and coffee.  On the 13th of January we will also be showing the Alfred Hitchcock classic “The Birds”.

The story begins as an innocuous romantic triangle involving wealthy, spoiled Melanie Daniels (Tippi Hedren), handsome Mitch Brenner (Rod Taylor), and schoolteacher Annie Hayworth (Suzanne Pleshette). The human story begins in a San Francisco pet shop and culminates at the home of Mitch’s mother (Jessica Tandy) at Bodega Bay, where the characters’ sense of security is slowly eroded by the curious behavior of the birds in the area. At first, it’s no more than a sea gull swooping down and pecking at Melanie’s head. Things take a truly ugly turn when hundreds of birds converge on a children’s party. There is never an explanation as to why the birds have run amok, but once the onslaught begins, there’s virtually no letup.

Please join us on Friday the 13th for an enjoyable evening. Dinner starts at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 and reservations are required. Call 570-296-8126 to reserve.

Guests may also be interested to see an interesting item in the Museum’s collection which goes along nicely with this particular movie selection.

The PCHS exhibits a case of what are known as “Audubon’s Birds”.  These are varied taxidermied specimens done by the leading taxidermist of the time, John Bell.  Mr. Bell hailed from Matamoras and accompanied Audubon on his Missouri River trek. These birds were used for models in Audubon’s sketches for his famed bird books and guides.
