Plot Synopsis

GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN is a reality series that follows Nick Groff, America's leading paranormal investigator, Bill Hartley, a paranormal tech guru, and Elizabeth Saint, a paranormal sensitive, as they use their skills to help residents restore peace to their homes and find out why Shepherdstown, West Virginia, is such a hotbed for hauntings. Billed as the most haunted town in America, Shepherdstown is known as much for its ghostly residents as it is for the local arts scene, university, and historic attractions. In a community of 1,750 people, almost everyone has experienced something they couldn't explain, resulting in Shepherdstown's five-man police department responding to a majority of 911 calls where the disturbances are paranormal, not criminal, in nature. This surge of supernatural activity has forced Sgt. Michael King, now Chief of Police, to enlist the aid of this trio of paranormal investigators to uncover the truth about objects that seem to vanish into thin air, disembodied voices, and faceless figures lurking in the shadows. Each one-hour episode of GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN begins with a 911 call from a panicked and frightened resident experiencing unexplainable activity, such as the appearance of a body floating down the Potomac River, a sighting of a headless woman, or a piano playing on its own. After getting a call from Chief King alerting them to the incident, Nick, Bill and Elizabeth head to the scene and complete a full sweep for evidence of ghostly activity, ruling out non-paranormal explanations as they proceed. Once they gather leads, they enlist the help of local historians and psychics to help them in their quest for answers. Along the way, they track and compare clues to determine if there is a trend in these supernatural experiences that could explain the recent awakening of Shepherdstown's spirits. In the series opener, Nick, Elizabeth and Bill begin their investigation into the flood of paranormal activity in Shepherdstown as they respond to their first case: a mysterious haunting at the local bakery. The terrified night-shift baker reports sightings of a figure in a gray Civil War uniform and strange objects falling past the window outside. With the help of a local historian and a gifted psychic, the team uncovers shocking details of the building's role in the bloodiest battle in American history. Season 2 of GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN premiered on Monday, July 10, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT on Destination America. The first season finale culminated in a ceremony on the Potomac River to cleanse the town of its "Witches Curse," which seemed to settle the ghostly activity... at least, within its own borders. Soon, Chief King began hearing from his colleagues in neighboring police jurisdictions that the mysterious happenings had spread to their nearby towns, suggesting that Shepherdstown is only one piece to a much larger paranormal puzzle. Groff, Hartley and Saint return for Season 2 to follow new leads and attempt to solve the mystery once and for all. In the season premiere, paranormal investigator Nick Groff, tech guru Bill Hartley and paranormal sensitive Elizabeth Saint return to Shepherdstown to resume their investigation after Chief King receives reports that the paranormal activity has spread. Water is a powerful conductor of energy, and some believe that extends to spiritual energy as well. The team theorizes that local rivers that run through Shepherdstown are channeling supernatural forces and awakening spirits in towns along the riverbanks. The trio is called to the meeting place of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers in the quaint, historic town of Harpers Ferry, W.V., to explore the John Brown Wax Museum after the manager complained of unusual activity that made her fear being in the museum alone. Throughout the investigation, the team discovers spirits with ties to the Civil War, a raid on Harpers Ferry, and a family that suffered a tragedy. With psychic medium Lorie Johnson's help, they attempt to rid the museum of its haunted inhabitants and thus start chipping away at the larger spiritual forces that have cloaked the region. Other towns visited this season include Charles Town, Martinsburg, and Sharpsburg in West Virginia; South Mountain, Md., and culminating where it all began, the most haunted town in America, Shepherdstown.
On Monday, August 28, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Destination America premiered the Season 2 finale of GHOSTS OF SHEPHERDSTOWN. In the season ender, "What an Excellent Day for an Exorcism," after a season investigating surrounding towns, the team has been called back to Shepherdstown and worry that the evil spirit has made its way back through limestone channels. In Monday's finale, Chief King receives a frantic call from Lisa Olney of reported poltergeist activity at the Teahouse, a local business she owns in town. Items seem to move on their own, things fly off the walls, and clip tablecloths. A tip leads the team to a pastoral center that holds the final piece of the puzzle, when they discover through the connections of all the previous haunting sites that the spirits of Shepherdstown may have a possible satanic connection. Nick, Elizabeth and Bill must work to piece together a mysterious legend that links all the haunted locations together, and prepare to perform a dangerous exorcism which could be the key to ridding spirits from Shepherdstown once and for all.
