This house museum is rumored to be haunted by former owner Frank Stranahan, a businessman who fell upon hard times during the Great Depression and drowned himself in the nearby river. Folks say his spirit returned to his house and resides there still. His wife Ivy died much later in 1971, in an upstairs bedroom, and her ghost is said to be here as well, along with the ghost of her father, brother, and sister, and an Indian servant girl. Folks have seen apparitions and other strange occurrences, such as the fact that the bed shows an imprint where a ghost may be lying.
