Nightstalkers of Indiana
My name is Bob Freeman, founder of the Nightstalkers of Indiana, and I believe in those things that go bump in the night…
For more than three decades I have sought to peek behind the veil.
I’ve embarked on vision quests with shamans atop Hopi Mesa, searched for the Grail in fabled Roslyn Chapel, tracked werewolves in the Ozark Mountains, investigated the ruins of the Temple of the Sun, communed with spirits in a derelict Fraternal Lodge, and more…
The world is indeed filled with countless mysteries, and the truth lies somewhere between myth and reality.
Therein lies the heart of what Nightstalkers is all about.
My journey began as a child, obsessing over folk tales from my parents’ native Arkansas and the ghost stories told that concerned my own backyard in rural Indiana.
I formed my first paranormal group, The Monster Club, in 1974, fueled as much by things as diverse as Dark Shadows, Night Gallery, Sammy Terry, Fate Magazine, In Search of Ancient Astronauts, the Universal Monsters, and the Night Stalker starring Darren McGavin.
This was the same year that I began slipping out of my bedroom late at night to wile away the hours in the crook of a gnarled old tree in the center of Little Pipe Creek Cemetery. This was a place infused with urban legend, long rumored to be home to spirits, and it was my playground.
Like I said, I was fascinated and that fascination led me to investigate, like an enthusiastic young Hardy Boy, every boneyard and abandoned home I happened upon. It is a fascination that fires my imagination and interest to this day.
In 1983, as a senior in high school, I founded the Nightstalkers of Indiana.
Off to college, I majored in Anthropology with a focused interest in witchcraft, magic, and religion. I knew that this course of study would serve me well as an occult detective and the skills that I learned have proved invaluable to the way I approach the mysteries that Nightstalkers become embroiled in.
I have immersed myself in the worlds of science and magick, desperate to look past the thin veil of our shared reality and into the machinations behind it all, to peek behind the curtain and stare long into the abyss.
The Nightstalkers of Indiana are dedicated to exploring the deeper mysteries, but more importantly, we are here to serve you… and best of all, we’re just an email away:
