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!

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts

The Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts was founded in 2015 by Lexington, an accredited, award-winning provider of disability services in New York State. Part of Lexington’s work is to ensure that the people it supports lead enriched lives and are engaged in the community, and the arts center is a way to accomplish both while also giving back to the community at large.

The Center is named for Lexington’s former executive director of more than 40 years, Paul Nigra. Paul worked tirelessly throughout his career to support people with disabilities and believed that everyone could and deserved to achieve success and fulfillment, regardless of their differences. Paul was also a lifelong lover of the arts.

To get more information and directions you can visit the Paul Nigra Center for the Arts website at Paul Nigra Center for Creative Arts.
