SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (Oct. 3, 2017) — Many sites in Saratoga Springs have long been known for their "ghostly" interactions and events that are difficult to explain.
On Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 1 p.m. at The Summit at Saratoga (1 Perry Road, Saratoga Springs), Charlie Kuenzel, co-owner of Saratoga Tours LLC, will discuss “Ghosts of Saratoga Springs.” His talk will focus on original research by former ghost hunter Dave Pitkin, as well as new sightings and research at the locations of the Canfield Casino, Old Bryan Inn and Lake Avenue School.
“Over the last few years, the Canfield Casino has been investigated by numerous paranormal groups, including the group responsible for the SyFy Channel’s popular TV show, ‘Ghost Hunters,’” said Kuenzel. “Witnesses claim to have experienced odd apparitions such as a woman in Victorian clothing and levitating trash cans. They have also felt cold spots, hostile energies and slaps from something unseen, as well as heard distinctive tinkling sounds.
“Dave Pitkin and I were good friends until his passing in 2013,” said Kuenzel. “Dave conducted ghost research for 40 years and completed numerous books about ghosts in New York state and Saratoga County which required him to interview thousands of people. His paranormal research merged with the history of these sites makes for a very interesting discussion.”
At talk’s conclusion, many of Pitkin’s most popular books on the ghosts of this area and the northeast will be for sale for $10 (cash or check only). Proceeds will benefit the Saratoga History Museum.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Reserve your place by calling (518) 430-2136, or emailing Light refreshments will be served. For directions to the community, visit
