Harmonic Houdini Convergence in Ft. Worth, TX

The anniversary of Houdini's death finally arrived and so did many Houdini-ites, paranormal investigators, skeptics and believers who converged in Fort Worth for the "Official" Houdini Seance on October 31, 2012. The Seance is typically reserved for a few friends who gather from across the country. But this year for the first time in a long time it was opened to the public. When the word went out, people came from coast to coast to be a part of this historic occasion.

The Commandry Room of the Ft. Worth Masonic Center hosted the seance which was the perfect creepy venue. Built in the early 1930's, this historic Ft. Worth building has many of its own ghost stories to tell. But it was just one spirit that we sought on Halloween night...Harry Houdini.
