For as long as anyone living around Sylacauga can remember, there have been rumors of strange goings-on at the museum. It had formerly housed the city library, but more space was needed, so the books all moved, and the old library building became the Isabel Anderson Comer Museum. Only the ghosts and paranormal activities stayed right there.

Well, leave it to the museum operators to get to the bottom of things. They are bringing in a team of "ghost busters" or at least "ghost investigators." They will be in town on February 17 and perform an investigation with you, the public, right there watching and participating.

"No spook, specter or haunt will ever be safe again."

Bet you've never been on a ghost hunt. Well, this is your opportunity.

The site of the investigation, the Comer Museum, is on the main drag through Sylacauga. Broadway. Right next to Sylacauga High School. Right across from the football stadium. It's easy to find for you and for spirits looking for a home to haunt.

The museum's address is even lucky, a lucky place for the spooks to find. 7-11. 711 North Broadway, Sylacauga.

Here is the description of the event from the museum operators:
