When the museum moved to the Arbona building, the staff realized that the ghost of a former resident inhabited the building. Eugenio Arbona, who came to the area in the late 1800s, apparently never left. Witnesses have detected his strong cigar smoke, objects are moved around by unseen hands, and mysterious noises are heard on the second story. Also, the elevator sometimes operates on its own. In the Military Room, guests have felt tugs on their clothing, and detected a strong sense of something unknown. It is said that during a talk a volunteer was giving to some visitors, the volunteer called Mr. Arbona a mean man. At that point, three loud raps were heard from the back of the building.
