It is an honor for Edward Shanahan by way of the Directors of the
Historic Tinker Swiss Cottage Museum and the Rockford Public
Library, to be allowed to bring a group of individuals there for a
Paranormal Night on this very special night that is said to be the
night that the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest,
All Hallows Eve, to explore and experience the documented to be
haunted Tinker Swiss Cottage, it's many rooms plus the haunted
and spiritual grounds. Also all that Edward Shanahan will provide.

Mr. Robert Tinker was the Mayor of Rockford, a successful
business man and a Freemason.

Mr. Tinker built the home in 1865, perching it high on a limestone
bluff overlooking Kent Creek. His inspiration came from an 1862
tour of Europe where he fell in love with the architecture of
Switzerland. Today the Cottage is one of only a handful of Swiss-
style homes remaining in the United States from the 1800s.

A three-story Barn housed cows, chickens and in later years the
family car. On the backside of the Cottage, a suspension bridge
crossed Kent Creek and linked the Cottage with Mrs. Tinker's
property on the far bank.

The Tinker family, the sole occupants of the Swiss Cottage, left
their home and their household belongings to trustees after
seventy-five years of residence. Filled with original furnishings,
artwork, diaries and household items, the Cottage is a rich time
capsule of life a century ago.

The property also has a Native American burial mound, the
original pioneer site of Rockford from 1834. There was a grave
yard for 8 years on the north side of the property (1844- 1852).
The bodies were later moved to a different location.

There has been at least five paranormal investigations in the
past at the location and a film crew that filmed for a documentary
on paranormal research.

Besides Mr. Tinker's wife Mary, there were several nieces and
other relatives that lived and died in the house. The Property has
created many great EVP's and personal paranormal experiences.

On Saturday October 30th, 2010

The Paranormal Night will start at 7pm, all will meet in the
reconstructed 1870 Barn, it is now the gift store and meeting
and banquet room.

They will serve a few refreshments. Edward Shanahan will start
his brief palm and old or young soul readings for all individuals.
The Historians will give the history of the house. They will also
give a history of the spiritualist movement of the time period.

The Historians then will give a tour that includes the cemetery
across the bridge, the indian mound, and then the house. The
Historian will talk about the paranormal activity at the location.

Individuals will then be allowed to explore the location. Bring
your cameras, voice recorders and paranormal tools if you have
