The FCHS is thrilled to welcome Agent Paranormal back to Fulton County!

The team will present some of their past cases and evidence, then you’ll have an opportunity to investigate one of Fulton County’s most haunted buildings alongside the professionals, using high-tech equipment and techniques.

Your ticket includes two slices of cheese pizza and a beverage. Please note that attendance is limited and tickets are required for this event. All proceeds support the FCHS and its mission to acquire, preserve and promote the history of Fulton County and to convey the significance to the public with tours, exhibits, programs, and research.​

The Agent Paranormal team has strived to help those in need, educate the public on all aspects of the paranormal, and work with local organizations dedicated to historical preservation.

For over a decade we have been entrusted by many historical locations and museums to assist them in fundraising, and in many cases, we were the first and only ones allowed to help them out. Over the years those fundraising events provided funds to maintain and upgrade those facilities and in many cases just helped to keep the lights on. If you need assistance or would like to learn more about the paranormal, please reach out to our team by emailing us at agentparanormalteam@gmail.com or message us on Facebook @AgentParanormal. We are here to help!
