The Akron Area Museum, formerly the home of the Ross Family is haunted some say by the Materiach, Mrs. Lucille Ross. The 100% volunteer staffed museum has had many members experience cold drafts, noises and a feeling of a presence around the main stairway and formal dining room in the former Ross home. One voluteer claims he felt a hand pushing him from behind as he was about to go from the third to second floor.

Tours of the Museum are available upon request. For additional information, please contact board President Rodney Anderson or Vice President Angela Price.
