Paranormal Horror Mystery, History and Lore
From the time we are children, we are taught to fear the dark. Thanks to cultural influences like media and religion, we are raised to question what lies beyond. A world of spirits, demons, entities and the odd helpful and possibly friendly ghost or apparition.
From urban legends that won’t die (even if their victims did) to ancient practices, mythology and more. Paranormal mysteries and lore help us understand the subcultures that exist and investigate where some of our deepest, darkest fears and terrors come from. What lies beyond our normal senses, in a plane of existence that science can neither explain nor completely debunk?

From haunted houses and artifacts that have influence over their residents and owners, to entities with a reputation for creating fear, chaos and sometimes injury.

The Buckner Building stands in Whittier, Alaska—the gateway to Prince William Sound—as a relic to a forgotten past.
