Middlesex County Courthouse

The historic Middlesex County Jail and Courthouse (still used) is haunted by Marion “Peg-Leg” Brown, a farm-hand and cowboy from Texas. He had a wooden leg (hence his nickname), and scars over his eye and on his hand. Brown had fled to Canada after being arrested in 1898, for selling beer to Native Americans and for murder. His ghost has been seen and heard throughout the courthouse.
