Now Brandywine Prime, the Chadds Ford Inn was also the site of a DSGI investigation. “There were things going on, but they couldn’t properly document anything,” says Dunham.
DSGI also conducts private investigations at people’s homes.
The interview and application process typically involves a walkthrough and journaling manifestations for two to three weeks. “We want to be safe, and we want homeowners to feel safe,” Dunham says. “We refer anything that sounds
like demonic activity to other groups in Delaware, who are surprisingly busy.”
DSGI analyzes what they find— and what they don’t. “Sometimes it’s inconclusive,” Dunham admits.
Lendway mentions one house in Hockessin where investigators recorded near-constant activity. “You could see the relief on the homeowners’ faces,” he says.
“Sometimes people just want to know
they’re not crazy,” adds Dunham. “The spirits seem to want to be acknowledged, and they’ll settle down after that.”
Investigations are conducted at night, when the environment is quieter and they can control who’s there. When DSGI finds evidence of activity, they go back for more. It can take a month to go through all the evidence collected from a single overnight investigation.
When evidence of activity is discovered, homeowners often ask the DSGI team to return. “No one has asked us to get rid of any spirits though,” says Dunham. “Our role is to document what we’ve found and reassure people that it’s OK to talk about the paranormal.”
At Fort Delaware and Bellevue Hall, DSGI events continue to be popular. “We’re not here to change minds—just to educate,” says Lendway. “Even at our events, it’s a little taboo to talk about.”
