All guests will be divided into 4 groups that you will remain with all night and rotate through each of the 4 mansions. Each mansion will have a lead investigator stationed there who will lead the groups as they cycle through. Guest will experience a different lead investigator at each of the stops.
Due to the historic nature of the location and the fact that we will be investigating inside structures that have been designated museum spaces, participants must remain part of the group at all times and may not venture into other parts of the house on their own.
About Heritage Square Museum
For 40 years, people have claimed to hear, see and feel all manner of mysterious happenings at Heritage Square Museum. Whether it is the nature of the Victorian architecture, the historic furnishings and paintings on display or something all-together different, “ghost sightings” have occurred at the museum since its inception. Haunted Orange County ventures into Haunted LA County as we investigate the Heritage Square Hauntings. Heritage Square Museum is a living history museum that explores the settlement and development
of Southern California during its first 100 years of statehood. During the day it transports visitors to the end of the 19th century, when California was a fledgling state and the former cow town El Pueblo de Los Angeles began shaping itself into the metropolis it is today. At night after the sun sets, the visitors depart and the last staff locks up the for the night it’s long time residents still roam the halls of its old Victorian mansions. Recently Haunted Orange County had the opportunity to investigate this property and we've gathered some compelling evidence, including disembodied voices on EVP and ITC sessions as well as physical contact and various personal experiences by our investigators. For only the second time, members of the general public will be able to experience these historic structures with a group of highly experienced paranormal investigators with Haunted Orange County.

Ben Hansen - SyFy Channel Host of Fact or Faked, Paranormal Files
Inspired by TV shows like The X-Files which were popular while he was in high school, Ben cemented an interest in both a desire to work in public service for an investigative agency and an insatiable desire to explore mysteries of the unknown. After graduating college, he worked for several private and public agencies, including investigating child sex crimes and severe physical abuse on the Utah County Sex Crimes Task Force. His training and work later brought him to work in the position of Special Agent for the FBI. His time serving at the state and federal levels gave him over six years of formal experience in investigating a wide range of crimes and national security details. Feeling as though he might someday return to public service, Ben also felt compelled to seize an opportunity presented to him to assist in forming a new investigative reality TV show. Departing from the mainstream paranormal shows prevalent at the time, this new show would not only conduct observation-based field investigations; it would focus primarily on alleged evidence already at hand. The age of the Internet has brought with it the sharing of thousands of allegedly paranormal viral videos and photographs. People with a sincere curiosity for the unknown are often left with the tremendous and exciting task of sifting through the hoaxes and naturally explainable cases. Ben and the show developers felt that after a methodical process of experimentation, whatever evidence remained unexplained... also became more compelling. From this concept was born the SyFy hit television show Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files.
Having been with Fact or Faked from the beginning, Ben leads a team of five specialists who travel the world looking for answers to these mysteries. Confronting the relationship of seeing and believing, the team has witnessed and documented dozens of unbelievable events. Many people recite the phrase, "I'll believe it when I see it." Balancing an innate human longing for rational explanation with the acceptance of witnessing undeniably strange events- Aliquandro videre non est satis- Sometimes seeing is not enough.
Between filming the television show and traveling to events across the country, Ben also films aerial video and photography with remote control multi-rotor helicopters and teaches basic and advanced firearms courses as an instructor. In his free time, he attempts to surf, enjoys basketball, rock climbing, SCUBA diving, and flying small planes. He also believes firmly in the importance of volunteerism, especially when it comes to disaster preparedness. He serves on his community's CERT team and the Disaster Action Team for the American Red Cross. He also works as a Sr. Research Analyst for a non-profit disaster relief organization which is awaiting funding to fully launch.

Ellen Marron, Medium/Spiritual Intuitive
Teacher, mentor, researcher, lecturer, spiritual counselor are but a few words that are listed on my resume. I come from a long line of sensitives. I have devoted over 30 years to the teaching of metaphysical studies. I use my expertise as a high school physical science teacher and incorporate that into the unique teaching of psychic development/mediumship. My goal is to take the mystery out of the unseen and educate my students to the coexistence of living with spirit. Understanding the con- cept of energy opens the door communicating with the spirit plane.
