About us:

Whaling City Ghosts is a private research team based in New Bedford, MA.  Most of our members have a long history in the paranormal field and create a team that along with trying to come up with better data collection methods, hopes to help people come to terms with the haunts they live with in the haunted New England area.  Living in and around an intense area of paranormal activity called "The Bridgewater Triangle" most team members have experienced strange phenomena and bring that understanding to the field.  With a strong basis in science and history we hope to bring more of New England's ghosts to life while also trying to solve some of the mysteries of the unknown that exist in this area that can claim one of the longest histories in America.
