POTSDAM, N.Y. -- A group of Potsdam residents spent Thursday night sharing local ghost stories in hopes adding a few more stories to their collection.
With a guide from Rise Above Paranormal, they embarked on a walking tour to some historic buildings in Potsdam. The participants listened to the paranormal stories that have been documented there.
According to experts, there are several factors that make a site good for paranormal encounters.
"Usually a good historic site, there is lots of things that have gone on there. Deaths, sometimes can make for a good paranormal location, but not always," explained Ryan Meashaw, Rise Above Paranormal.
According to local legends, most of Potsdam's historic buildings have recorded paranormal activity. This is the second year the walking tour has taken place.
