The team of experts explores several legendary cases, including the haunting of an elegant mansion in New York City and the historic Maryland Tavern. For instance, the premiere episode takes viewers back to 1963, when the Todd family of Cleveland saw a horrible hand, making its way through the basement door in their Mason Court apartment. After the hand continued to terrorize them for weeks, the family was forced to leave the building. In the current time, new research has revealed that the area is terrorized by restless souls who were victims of the same infamous killer.
Other episodes cover a Victorian-age haunting in New York City’s Old Merchant’s House; Surratt Tavern in Clinton; Ohio’s Franklin Castle; Rockland County, New York; Staten Island’s historic Conference House; and the Bates Ship Chandlery, among others.
