Massachusetts Area Paranormal Society



Welcome to the official website of the Massachusetts Area Paranormal Society (M.A.P.S.). 

On this website, we will post summaries of all 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: Many thanks to all of our guests who made the 10th Annual Historic Ghost Tour of East Bridgewater Village a success! We appreciate the co-operation of M.A.P.S. Team members, as well as the efforts of our volunteers. Even Mother Nature was kind to us this year!

Many guests captured great photos, and some even had experiences throughout the tour. Lots of unexplained activity in the funeral parlor was experienced by cast members as well. We will see you next year!



Our team is excited to announce the first paranormal investigation 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.  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 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. as he shares with us his incredible knowledge of the 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 two groups of six 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 required to wear masks and practice social distancing.  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.  Due to the pandemic, only a limited amount of equipment will be shared among 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.  

The fee for our Paranormal Investigation is $50.00 per person.  Cash or check only.  Reservations may be made at Mrs. Swift's & Moore Antiques, 16 West Union Street, East Bridgewater, MA.  Shop hours are Wed. through Sat. 11 - 4 , Sun. 9-12 or by appointment.  Spaces are limited and you will be asked to sign a waiver.  The investigations will take place on Friday and Saturday evenings during September and October.  Please park in front of the building at 7:30 p.m. Because of social distancing, you will be escorted into the rear of the Old Masonic Building by Mr. Nye.
