Where do you host a yearly gathering of mediums, ghost hunters, and other paranormal enthusiasts? Somewhere haunted. That's why, for the past several years, Phenomacon Central sets up shop at the Eisenhower Hotel. Located 5 miles away from Gettysburg National Military Park, the hotel is known for its paranormal activity, notably in and around its on-site farmhouse.
Throughout the four-day Phenomacon Central event, attendees can explore the haunted grounds during expert-led ghost hunts on Friday and Saturday at midnight. Moreover, they can pick the experts' brains during lectures such as the Violent Hauntings discussion hosted by Jason Gowin and featuring panelists Andrea and Roger Perron, Tony and Debra Pickman, Carmen Reed, and Chris Dedman. The event organizers supplement the paranormal activities with entertainment such as a concert from Evermore Paranormal, a costume party dubbed the Ghoul's Gala, and silver bullet Russian roulette with real-life werewolves.

Between bits of narration that delve into the area's past and culture, groups make stops for tastings at eight diverse eateries.

Bill and Ann Yates had no idea that bringing their daughter to Disney World in 1973 would set the course of her future. Within five minutes of boarding The Haunted Mansion ride, though, little Kim's rudder was locked. She wanted nothing more than to create her own crazy, creepy fun house. She immediately began collecting old clothes, masks, props, and, of course, ideas. Every Halloween she transformed first her living room and then her yard into an attraction that drew visitors from miles around. In 1994, she decided to make her passion a career, and founded Kim's Krypt Haunted Mill, a blend of chills and thrills which she has continued to enrich ever since.
