We decided that we would develop a ghost tour based on research and historical documentation. We wouldn't jump to any conclusions and would perform research on any story that we uncovered with the hopes of letting the tour participants make the call. We searched books, we searched the Providence Journal index, we talked to librarians, we talked to locals and we searched the internet. We handed out form letters door-to-door. We actually performed the tedious task of going through reel after reel of the Providence death records looking for "abnormal deaths".
