Haunting at the Hackett Auto Museum

It’s undeniable that Michigan’s main claim to fame is its century-old automotive industry. And with a variety of car models once produced across many of the state’s cities, each holds its own unique car history. Today, many formerly bustling factories have closed down and been converted into museums chronicling their industrial past. In Jackson, The Hackett Auto Museum serves to preserve the legacy of the Hackett Automobile Company and even its ghosts. Held on the night of Saturday, Oct. 19, Hauntings at the Hackett is an event that allows the public to accompany paranormal investigators as they attempt to commune with the dead people whose presences they claim are still at The Hackett.
“This is your chance to experience first hand how paranormal investigations happens. The Hackett Auto Museum building has become known for experiences by multiple team investigators. Paranormal investigator team members will demonstrate the equipment used in their research,” wrote event organizers.
Attendees will not only learn a bit about the automotive history that was made at The Hackett but how the equipment works for paranormal investigators. Organizers say that the proceeds from the event will be used to aid in the preservation and restoration of the building.
“Must be 18 years or older to participate. Please dress accordingly, no open-toed shoes permitted. We reserve the right to remove any person(s) deemed to be disruptive,” organizers said. “Please note, the first 15 minutes of each program will be a walking tour of the site. Guests will then be escorted to their assigned seats.”
Tickets start at $49.99. To find out more about about the museum visit hackettautomuseum.org. It is located at 615 Hupp Ave. in Jackson.
