Dating back to 1907, the historic former masonic temple and museum may have a resident ghost. Known as ‘Frank’, the poltergeist frequently slams doors and turns on lights after the place has been closed up for the night. Disembodied footsteps have also been heard on the second floor, and on occasions the old elevator is operated by unseen hands.
