Fort William Henry Museum is rumored to be haunted by victims of the massacre of 1757. Reports say anywhere from 200 to 1500 people were killed. One ghost, with uneven footsteps, is nicknamed the Limper. His amputated skeleton was unearthed by archeologists in the 1950s. Another ghost, the Slammer, likes to–you guessed it–slam doors in the museum guides’ faces. There are also officers’ ghosts who reprimand guides for entering their spaces and a disembodied voice that urges tourists to leave the powder magazine. Also seen here are orbs, flashing lights and colored streaks. The site was investigated by TV’s Ghost Hunters.
