    1. There is NO ghost in the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House. As Founding Director of the museum, I can attest that no such haunting has ever occurred. A noted ghost story writer once made up a story for a book, and when I called her to protest, she said, “Oh, everyone knows ghost stories are just make believe and for fun. No one really believes them, anyway.” The story, sadly, has spread from there. The museum is lovely, but do not visit thinking you’ll see a ghost. It’s a decidedly unhaunted house.
