EARLVILLE — The historic Earlville Opera House (EOH) will be hosting paranormal tours on Friday, October 22, led by paranormal investigator Kenny Harris. Time slots are 7 to 9 p.m., and 10 p.m. to midnight, and admission is $20.

Constructed in 1892, and turning 130 next year, the EOH has seen hundreds of performers. Executive Director Michelle Connelly said it has always served as an opera house, and a place for the community to gather. It also may be home to the spirits of former musical performers.

"It's always been a kind of communal gathering place for things," she said. "Back in the day it used to be, there used to be vaudeville acts, an occasional snake oil salesman, and, you know, silent movies."

In 2019, the EOH held paranormal tours and came into contact with several spirits, Connelly said. Luckily, it appears all entities within the building are benevolent.

"It's only good entities, because we have nothing but fun here," explained Connelly. "Most of the people we came in contact with were musicians that had played here in the past. So that was, you know, it's only goodness that's here. And I'm here by myself a lot and I've heard a few things, but it's mostly like people laughing. Like, good things."
