Welcome to the official website of the Massachusetts Area Paranormal Society (M.A.P.S.).
On this website, we will post summaries of all of our investigations, as well as photos of each one. To access photos, please visit the "M.A.P.S. Photo Gallery" in the sidebar to the right. To read about the investigation, it will be listed by location in the sidebar to the right.
Here at M.A.P.S., although we have been together for 18 years, we do not claim to be experts! We enjoy conducting investigations and do it purely for the love of the paranormal. The M.A.P.S. Team is willing to investigate sites at no expense to the owners. Unlike other groups, we do not find it necessary to provoke energies. All investigated properties are treated with consideration and respect.
We hope you enjoy browsing our website!
We are currently shifting our team focus from investigating local "hotspots" to assisting individuals and their families who may be concerned about paranormal occurrences in their homes. Much of our attention today is also focused on activity within our own paranormal team headquarters, located at Mrs. Swift's & Moore Antiques within the Old Masonic Building, 16 West Union Street, East Bridgewater, in the Bridgewater Triangle. Over the past year, our team welcomed Amy and Adam, expert paranormal investigators of Kindred Spirits (as seen on the Travel Channel). We were proud to have our location featured on Season 6, Episode One of Kindred Spirits, "The Undertaker's Secret." Our haunted antiques shop is also featured on Paranormal Odyssey on YouTube and in the Fall edition of Amy and Adam's magazine, "Ghost Hunting, Scariest Encounters." On December 1, 2023, our team will be featured in the American Paranormal Magazine which is a free online publication. Check it out!
TEAM UPDATE: Unfortunately, the Historic Ghost Tour of East Bridgewater Village will not be happening this year. Our team, as well as our guests of the past 12 years are extremely disappointed. During the years we had the privilege of meeting many wonderful people who enjoyed the history of the Old Masonic Building as well as the stories of past residents of this quaint New England town of East Bridgewater. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers, guests and abundant spirit energies who were all a huge part of it being such a success. Over the years, many guests captured great photos and experienced unexplained activity in the funeral parlor as well as in the cemetery and along the route of the tour.
We are in the process of planning some surprises in the future!
In the past, we have held public investigations of the Old Masonic Building, when available.
The former Historic Masonic Building located within the Bridgewater Triangle has an abundance of unexplainable activity. It is not uncommon to hear mysterious voices, bells ring, or musical toys play by themselves. Strong odors and waves of chilling air have been experienced, as well as objects moving, apparitions, shadows and numerous other paranormal phenomena.
When we investigate the Old Masonic Building, Wayne Nye shares with us his incredible knowledge of the Building, its inhabitants, and its many secrets of the past. Typically, teams are divided into small groups accompanied by a M.A.P.S. Team Member, who will answer questions and ensure your safety throughout the evening. No smoking, food or alcohol is permitted, with the exception of water. Guests may bring their own paranormal equipment and are required to sign a Waiver/Release of Liability. We realize that there are skeptics out there, as well as many who believe in the paranormal and unexplained. Actually, one in five people have claimed to have seen or felt the presence of a ghost. Since we have such a close ongoing relationship with the energies in this building, we ask that you treat the spirits within these walls with dignity and respect.

The M.A.P.S. Team was founded in 2007 by local genealogist and historian, Wayne Nye "The Cemetery Guy". Since then, we have been investigating local (and not so local) sites with reported paranormal activity.
