Amstel House Museum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Amstel House Museum

The 17th-century house was originally built by Dr. John Finney; his son David Finney built a home across the street. An underground tunnel connected the two. A ghost who is thought to be one of the family members haunts both residences. At the Amstel House Museum, the presence seems to like the third floor, where it opens and closes windows and doors and moves objects.
