Chad Lewis wants to take a Stewartville audience on a ghostly journey to some of the most haunted places in Minnesota.

Lewis, a paranormal researcher and author, is scheduled to speak at the Stewartville High School Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m.

Lewis, armed with photos, case history and eyewitness accounts, will talk about a haunted house in Stewartville and will also cover the entire state of Minnesota, focusing on wandering ghosts in the north woods and a haunted bed and breakfast establishment in Wabasha.

"From phantom creatures prowling the woods to graveyard apparitions located in your back yard, no place in Minnesota is without its own haunting," Lewis said in a news release promoting his appearance.

Lewis holds a master of science degree in applied psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. He has traveled the world in search of the paranormal, tracking vampires in Transylvania, chasing the Chupacabras in Puerto Rico, searching for the elusive monster in Loch Ness and pursuing ghosts in Ireland's castles.

Lewis will tell audience members where they can:

See possessed statues come to life.

Pick up a phantom hitchhiker.

Encounter a ghost train.

Enjoy a play in a haunted theatre.

Have their cars pushed by spirits.

Lewis has been featured on the Discovery Channel's "A Haunting," ABC's "World's Scariest Places," and has completed hundreds of radio interviews, TV appearances and newspaper articles.

He is the author of the "Hidden Headlines" series and is the co-author of the "Road Guide to Haunted Locations" book series. He has spoken at hundreds of libraries, universities and schools and at private functions for crowds as small as seven people and as large as 700.

Tickets for the event will be available at the door on Jan. 31.
