The historical museum features war paraphernalia and other such exhibits from the past, and is rumoured to be haunted. The apparition of a young soldier who was taken as a prisoner of war has been seen waving and smiling to guests in a room on the second floor. A visitor to the museum once fainted after encountering him, and later came to the realization that it was her deceased younger brother whom she had not seen since the age of fourteen. Other paranormal activity includes cold spots in the attic, ghostly voices and a pair of twin boys in identical clothing playing on the lower floor of the building.
