Steel Town Spirit Symposium
Chris Durish, Tracy Ray, David Rountree

Steel Town Paranormal attempts, through our investigative efforts, to shed light on questions that we have all pondered at one time or another. Questions about what happens to us when we pass from our earthly existence. Questions that may creep into our heads after watching a scary movie or hearing a strange sound while lying in bed. What happens when we die? What are ghosts and do they really exist? Should I be frightened of those things that go “bump” in the night? Answering these questions completely, at least in this lifetime, is likely an impossible task. Only one thing is certain about the next realm…nothing is certain. We here at Steel Town Paranormal know we will never find “the answer”. What we do hope to gain, however, is a better understanding of what ghosts and spirits are and what relationship they have to our lives as human beings. We also want to assist others in understanding and coping with personal experiences that they may be having in their home or place of business by offering our investigation services free of charge.

Steel Town Paranormal was founded in February 2009 by Melanie and Christopher Durish and is located in southwestern Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. Steel Town Paranormal is a group of individuals from different social and religious backgrounds dedicated to the capture, documentation, and research of potential evidence of the paranormal. In July 2011, Steel Town Paranormal was featured on the Travel Channel’s hit series PARANORMAL CHALLENGE, created and hosted by Zak Bagans from Ghost Adventures. We were also featured in a segment of Biography Channel’s MY GHOST STORY in October 2012.
