From Haverhill’s initial founding in 1640, the city has been no stranger to paranormal activity, according to local ghost hunter Tom Spitalere. For WHAV’s first-ever Halloween Open Mic Show, the Essex County Ghost Project founder dished on city spirits with co-hosts Bill Macek and Bill Ellis.

Recap Spitalere’s Oct. 22 appearance in the video below, where he recounts how he worked with a demonologist to rid a city home of particularly active spirits. The paranormal expert also shares his theory on a Bigfoot sighting at an apple orchard near Silver Hill in the 1960s—and recalls the time he once saw a possible UFO over Lafayette Square.

The Open Mic Show is heard live, every Monday night, from 6-8 p.m., on 97.9 WHAV FM. Video of the program is also available at WHAV.TV, WHAV’s Facebook page and HC Media Channel 22.
