This historic museum was formerly a schoolhouse, and is believed to be haunted by the apparition of a man who passed away back in 1914. Known to staff as ‘George’, he is responsible for moving objects around the building or making them disappear completely. Some also claim to have seen a misty white apparition drifting through the hallway after hours.

  1. The spelling IS incorrect. That being said, I have spent a significant number of hours at the museum after closing. My mother used to clean the building in the evenings. I dare say “George” is not the only spirit who visits – considering the amount of personal items stored within that building. Several different energies can be felt in various rooms. The upstairs (3rd floor) appears to be the most active though. I always hated cleaning alone in any of the rooms, especially after dark!

  2. Actually the spelling is correct, it is spelled like that everywhere, just look at the sign in the picture. It is spelled like that on maps too.
