SPIRITS of St. Petersburg

“St. Petersburg’s Oldest Active Paranormal Team”

Established in 1997 by Dr. Brandy Stark

In 2022, the SPIRITS of St. Petersburg was declared the oldest continuing paranormal investigation team in the Tampa Bay area in Joshua Ginsberg’s book, Oldest Tampa BayOur decades-long experience is guided by our desire to create a reasonable and compassionate view of the supernatural world.  The team integrates ideas and academic discussions of symbolism, cultural interpretation, and respect for others (dead or living). We utilize a philosophy that the investigator is the research instrument on paranormal cases, that history aids in validating phenomena, and work within the appropriate boundaries of stated rules, laws, and regulations. We work to promote an honest assessment of the situation and to offer advice and assistance to those in need.

With our research, documentation, and recordings, we compile a complete report of the location and file it here.  Feel free to look around and learn more about us and the wonderful city that we live in.
