Ghost Club The Oldest Paranormal Organization

Recommended Posts

The 18th century Victorian Era saw a surge in the otherworldly concept of Spiritualism, the belief in ghosts and the spirit world beyond what we know. It was a time of psychics and mediums, of séances, spirit photography, and all manner of odd pursuits which sat firmly against established scientific paradigms. People wanted to believe, and Spiritualism became so rampant and en vogue that various organizations built upon its principles were established, as well as numerous hucksters and charlatans looking to make a buck off the burgeoning trend in all things weird. It was at this time of rampant Spiritualism that one such organization in particular rose to prominence, and would grow to include within its ranks some of the most influential people of the time. Welcome to the world of the world’s oldest organization of paranormal investigators.

THE GHOST CLUB IS THE OLDEST ORGANISATION

Quote

Founded back in 1862, the Ghost Club is the oldest organisation in the world associated with psychical research. Although its main interest is in the paranormal phenomena associated with ghosts and hauntings. Like the SPR the club also has its roots in the Trinity College of Cambridge, where it is clear there must have been some lengthy discussions of ghosts and hauntings for two of the longest standing organisations to evolve from. Those spooky discussions were said to have started around 1855 amongst the colleges fellows. Perhaps one of them had an experience of their own or just following the fashionable interest of the time.

Wow, I really like the sound of this club.  I was looking at their About Page to see a bit more about the current members etc and found this:

Quote

Overnight investigations are held at sites throughout the year with the aim of observing and recording phenomena.

Our aim is to conduct serious research; our investigations are not for entertainment purposes or for thrill seekers.

And....then I found this for those of us who are skeptics!

Quote

The Ghost Club is an informal, democratically run club of genuinely open-minded members and it should be stressed that unlike many similar organisations, interested sceptics are always welcome.

A nice inclusive club! 

For those of us who want to believe, but haven't quite got there yet. :D 

Thanks for sharing that link - I never would've learnt about them otherwise.
