Whether you've joined us at the Hanover Tavern before, or this will be your first time exploring this beautiful building, welcome to the Hanover Tavern ParaCon!

We're going to have a jam-packed weekend of Paranormal fun and learning. You'll be among some of the most selfless and knowledgeable individuals, groups, teams, and organizations within the Paranormal. This event is about coming together as a community to unite under one roof; historical preservation. 

100% of the proceeds from the Hanover Tavern ParaCon will be going directly to the Hanover Tavern Foundation, with the intent and purpose to support the Foundation in their continued efforts of restoration of the Tavern and the educational programming they create for all. Historic sites are a beacon of knowledge and provide opportunities for growth; not only for the paranormal field, but also the community at large.

Join us as we rally around the Hanover Tavern to support these endeavors, and find yourself part of something bigger than any single one of us.


There has been a Tavern on the property since 1733, when the first license for a Tavern at Hanover Courthouse was issued. The existing Tavern was built in stages and includes more than 12,000 square feet on three floors. The earliest surviving portion of this building dates back to 1791, with additions in the 1820’s, 1830’s and the 1990’s.


Such historical figures as George Washington, Lord Cornwallis, Marquis de Lafayette, Patrick Henry, P.T. Barnum, and even Edgar Allen Poe graced the halls of Hanover Tavern. During the Civil War, both Union and Confederate troops utilized the Tavern.


With so much history packed into this building, has every guest that checked into Hanover Tavern truly checked out? The numerous paranormal teams who have investigated the Tavern would tell you “no”, citing disembodied voices, full body apparitions, and countless EVPs suggesting that no one is ever truly alone in the Tavern.


100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to Hanover Tavern Foundation for their continued restoration and protection efforts, as well as educational programming!
