at pioneer farms
Whether you’re a history buff or a paranormal enthusiast, you’ve come to the right place. If you're unfamiliar with our show, The Night Owl Podcast explores haunted sites, meticulously gathering testimony from eyewitnesses who’ve had personal unexplained experiences. We investigate these claims, do historical research, and even bring in a psychic medium who is unaware of the location or claims as a final step to try and validate experiences and reports. We document all this through audio recordings and collectively share it in a story-forward format that unfolds like a real-life haunted mystery on our show.. Pioneer Farms happened to be one of our featured cases on the show. When we visited this farm to interview staff, investigate, and explore, we quickly realized this was one of the most unique locations in the Austin area. The land itself has stories dating back hundreds of years. The transplanted historic buildings have been restored and brought back to life. The property was once home to an actual pioneer homestead dating back as far as 1844, and prior to that, recent archeological evidence revealed that the Tonkawa inhabited the area that runs along the Walnut Creek. Today, the many volunteers reenacting the daily pioneer living activities on this 90+ acre farm often have strange experiences that make them wonder if maybe they aren’t the only ones reliving the past on this property.
The Ghosts of Pioneer Farms will take you on a paranormal adventure exploring the haunted sites and trails of Pioneer Farms. This haunted hike features twelve spooky stops, each with its own tale, rich with history and paranormal experiences. Guided by the voice of Stephen Belyeu, host of The Night Owl Podcast, and featuring voices from volunteers and patrons of the farm, as well as the podcast's psychic medium Sara, this audio tour is an immersive, interactive experience like no other. History, true paranormal accounts, and incredible discoveries and validations, all curated into an experience you can have on-site and at the actual haunted locations.
So lace up your boots, grab our Haunted Map at the farm's General Store before you hit the trail, and get ready for some history, a few ghosts, and this one-of-a-kind Night Owl audio tour of Pioneer Farms.
