S.C.A.R.E. (Somerset County Area Research of the Extraordinary) was formed on Halloween 2008 by a group of family and friends who explored the paranormal in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Many of the individuals within the team came with their own experiences and talents to contribute to the search. About a year after forming S.C.A.R.E., the name was changed to "The S.C.A.R.E. Team of Pa" to define their team further and keep their work focused on their unique area (as there were many other groups called "S.C.A.R.E." and didn't want to be confused with them). Years passed, and the team worked with residents and businesses to search for the paranormal and to assist in their "Extraordinary" situations. This group of investigators recorded local lore, history and performed physical investigations at sites to find proof of paranormal phenomena. It was decided in 2020 that this team would expand, embracing "Para-unity" and work with many others in the paranormal studies to bring about further knowledge of the paranormal, historic preservation, and helping those face that which scares them. The name changed once more to "SCARE Paranormal" to simplify such a significant expansion and bring positive change in the studies of the paranormal to Somerset County, Pennsylvania, and surrounding areas, as well as other known (and unknown) places that could benefit from such a positive movement.
