Welcome to the official website of the Massachusetts Area Paranormal Society (M.A.P.S.).
On this website, we will post summaries of some of our investigations, as well as photos of each one. To access photos, please visit the "M.A.P.S. Photo Gallery" in the sidebar to the right. To read about the investigation, it will be listed by location in the sidebar to the right.
Here at M.A.P.S., although we have been together for 13 years, we do not claim to be experts! We enjoy conducting investigations and do it purely for the love of the paranormal. The M.A.P.S. Team is willing to investigate sites at no expense to the owners. Unlike other groups, we do not find it necessary to provoke energies. All investigated properties are treated with consideration and respect.
We hope you enjoy browsing our website!
TEAM UPDATE: Unfortunately, the Historic Ghost Tour of East Bridgewater Village will not be happening this year. Our team, as well as our guests of the past 12 years are extremely disappointed. During the years we had the privilege of meeting many wonderful people who enjoyed the history of the Old Masonic Building as well as the stories of past residents of this quaint New England town of East Bridgewater. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers, guests and abundant spirit energies who were all a huge part of it being such a success. Over the years, many guests captured great photos and experienced unexplained activity in the funeral parlor as well as in the cemetery and along the route of the tour.
We are in the process of planning some surprises in the future!
Our team is excited to announce Visiting Hours, the first paranormal investigations of the Old Masonic Building open to the public.
The former Historic Masonic Building located within the Bridgewater Triangle has an abundance of unexplainable activity. It is not uncommon to hear mysterious voices, bells ring, or musical toys play by themselves on a daily basis. Strong odors and waves of chilling air have been experienced, as well as objects moving, apparitions, shadows and numerous other paranormal phenomena.
Join Wayne Nye the Cemetery Guy, from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. as he shares with us his incredible knowledge of the haunted Old Masonic Building, its inhabitants, and its many secrets of the past. Step back in time as you absorb the gracious environment which is home to numerous spirits. Teams will be divided into three groups of two guests each, accompanied by a M.A.P.S. team member, who will answer questions and ensure your safety throughout the evening. All guests will be asked to wear masks. Disinfectant and hand sanitizer will be available. No smoking, food or alcohol is permitted, with the exception of water. Feel free to bring along your paranormal equipment. Some equipment will be available to our guests. We realize that there are skeptics out there, as well as many who believe in the paranormal and unexplained. Actually, one in five people have claimed to have seen or felt the presence of a ghost. Since we have such a close ongoing relationship with the energies in this building, we ask that you treat the spirits within these walls with dignity and respect.
