Ghost Hunters from four states have confirmed that there is without a question paranormal activity taking place at the Macon County Habitat for Humanity ReSale Store at 56 West Palmer Street in Franklin, NC.

The discovery all began and Rick Westerman, Executive Director, was alerted to a store alarm at 7:48 a.m. by local police on Monday, June 14, 2010. The ReSale Store is closed on Mondays. Upon arrival nothing was discovered. A second alarm was reported approximately two hours later. Still nothing.

An employee of the ReSale Store decided to check surveillance tape and much to her surprise a ghostly figure or apparition moves across the screen around the same time the store's burglar alarm went off.

The incident has peaked the interest of Paranormal Groups from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida and as far away as Missouri which have all been to the ReSale Store in Franklin, NC and investigated.

Westerman says that during those investigations even more evidence of paranormal activity have been discovered including a voice, a growling sound and orbs.

Needless to say the video, which can be seen by customers on a computer at the store, has lots of folks coming in to check out Franklin's newest attraction. » Watch WLOS-TV Report
