Kimberly Mitchell-Founder of G12P

I am Kimberly.  I have been ghost hunting since 2003 when my brother found the grave of George F. Thompson in the woods while deer hunting.  I started researching the area in an attempt to find out why someone would be buried there.  That lead to ghosts and ultimately my first haunted house in Alliance in 2005.  From there I would ghost hunt every weekend and several nights during the week.  I do that to this day.  I have taken over 10,000 pictures, and listened to over 2000 EVP recordings.  I have 11 digital recorders, 4 of which I have retired because they are full of EVP's.  I have investigated over 100 homes or buildings.  My favorite thing to do is research into the real history of an area.  I love finding legends about my home county and bringing them to life in the Columbiana County Legends Tour G12P has.  I have a strong crew of 15 plus people who are dedicated and reliable.  I love discovering new areas to investigate and new Legends to tell you about.   
I enjoy giving lectures. I have lectured at the Salem Public Library, the Salem Historical Society, for the Retired Teachers Association, The Austintown Lions Club, Youngstown State University, and Ohio Valley College Of Technology. I love designing tours, like the Salem Ghost Trolley Tours, and the Jackson In The Valley Ghost Walk. You always see a camera in one hand and a recorder in the other when I am out in the field.  I truly believe "Something is out there!"
