Bair Drug and Hardware Store Museum

This 1908 historic pharmacy and general store is now a museum and bistro, and is rumoured to be haunted. Staff and diners complain of a taciturn spirit that shatters glasses and rearranges cutlery, as well as playing with electrical appliances. The spectre is believed to be W.L Baird, who owned the store at the start of the turn of the century.
