The Lackawanna Historical Society is headquartered at the Catlin House which is the former residence of George H. Catlin, an early financier in the city. Designed by architect Edward Langley and built in 1912 in the stylings of the Tudor Revival, this three-story, sixteen-room residence features walnut woodwork, molded plaster ceilings, brass lighting fixtures, a three-paneled stained-glass window, and six fireplaces. The house was left to the Lackawanna Historical Society by Mr. Catlin, who was a lifetime member, in 1935 upon his passing. The Lackawanna County Historical Society received the property upon Mrs. Catlin's death in 1942. Come join Wyoming Valley Ghost Tours along with Mike Goncalves and Chris Smith of the Wraith Chasers at the Catlin House to investigate the paranormal claims of this Historic and Beautiful Building! Learn more about the history of the Catlin House before being led out to conduct your own paranormal investigation with all the necessary investigative equipment, no need to bring your own – all will be provided. This Special Event will include a Q&A session with the Wraith Chasers, followed by an Investigation of the Catlin House. Light snacks and refreshments will be available.

Chris became fascinated with hauntings at a young age after a frightening supernatural encounter. While in his grandfather’s barn, he came face to face with a “shadow person,” a shadow-like humanoid figure also known in some cultures as “wraiths” that are usually seen in peripheral vision. Since then, Chris has devoted his life to investigating paranormal activity and later won a spot on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters Academy to train under Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango of “Ghost Hunters.” After returning home, Chris founded the Tennessee Wraith Chasers ghost-hunting team to investigate paranormal mysteries. Though a skeptic by nature, he’s receptive to the idea that spirits are among us but seeks hard evidence to prove it. Chris is a native of Gallatin, Tennessee, where he was raised in a strict missionary Baptist household.

Mike, a musician, songwriter, and producer, got his first taste of the paranormal working in the shadows of the show “Ghost Asylum,” and on several occasions experienced his own paranormal events while trudging through the darkness of America's most haunted locations. Mike has spent 15 years in the music industry touring the world and sharing the stage with some of rock’s most notable icons. It was his countless hours spent in recording studios with state-of-the-art technology that made him curious to see if this advanced audio-visual equipment would help uncover evidence that the typical paranormal investigator was missing. As a Wraith Chaser, Mike brings his production expertise to the team, lending aid in the quest to uncover the unknown bumps in the night. Mike is a family man, animal lover, and follower of Christ along with his fellow Wraith brothers. His charm and witty personality make him the most likely jokester on the team. But don’t let his wit fool you; Mike couldn’t be more serious when it comes to his investigation of the afterlife.
