In 2017 the former school was featured on the TLC show “Ghost Brothers.”

Tickets are $129 and, according to event hosts, will include: “Access to meet and greet with Celebrity guest, Syfy Ghost Hunter Shari DeBenedetti and your Paranormal Dares Hosts; exclusive ghost hunt through Poasttown School with celebrity ghost hunter and your hosts; snacks and drinks; the use of professional ghost hunting equipment.”

Event “is not a walking tour of the location, it is an active investigation where you will use the equipment and tools to hunt the paranormal for yourself with guidance, tips, and location history from the Paranormal Dares team.”

The former school, located at 6600 Trenton Franklin Road, is believed to have been very close to two train accidents, one where two locomotives collided head-on in 1910, killing 30 people.With no hospital close by, the field where the school now exists was set up as a triage center. The thought is that the spirits of those who died from the accident still remain on the land.
