O.R.B.S. Paranormal Investigation at the
Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum

October 20 at 7 PM


Join us on Oct. 20 for the 7th straight year as The Ohio Researchers of Banded Spirits (O.R.B.S.) conducts a paranormal investigation at The Mad River & NKP Railroad Museum.

O.R.B.S. is a locally based but nationally prominent paranormal team that has been featured on Animal Planet's "The Haunted," History Channel's "My Ghost Story" and "Haunted History," and Destination America's "Paranormal Survivor" and "Haunted Case Files."

This fundraising event will begin at 7:00pm. You will learn about the different methods and equipment that will be used in the night's investigation and then be divided into investigative teams spreading throughout the grounds, buildings and railcars of the museum. The groups will rotate through all areas before the investigation is over.

The Mad River & NKP Museum is located at 253 Southwest Street, just 2 blocks south of Rt. 20 in Bellevue. Tickets for this event are $25 per person and space is limited so reserve your spot now.

The O.R.B.S. Team generously donates their time and all proceeds for this event. They will be used for the restoration on the "Silver Dome", the very first glass-topped dome car.

While the investigation will begin at 7:00, it's ending is determined by your stamina and the level of activity experienced. We will have coffee, water and light snacks to keep you going throughout the evening and early morning hours.

Join us for this exciting and unique way to support our museum.

Call our reservation line at 567-228-9866 to reserve your spot.

Call early as this is a very popular event.

Trick or Treat

Safe Trick or Treat at the Museum

Thursday, October 25 Following the Bellevue Halloween Parade

Following the Bellevue Halloween Parade the museum will be opened up for trick or treating on the grounds! Donuts and Cider will be available for the trick-or-treaters. It is a great time seeing kids of all ages dressed up in their costumes. Local businesses and organizations will be set up around the museum to pass out candy for the kids. Last year we had 639 trick-or-treaters and over 1500 people in attendance when you count the adults and parade goers. We hope to see you all there. If you would like to set up a candy station please contact the museum at 419-483-2222.
