This 1904 building now houses a railroad museum, and is allegedly haunted. Staff and paranormal investigators have reportedly encountered the apparition of a woman in a white dress, a ghostly curator who modifies exhibits and a spook who likes to tamper with a model railway.

  1. Hi, i I am 34, but as a small child I lived in the apts above the museum.. But I remember seeing the woman in the white dress. Also I remember being very scared to sleep alone.

    • The woman I saw wore an all white dress, long sleeved, ankle length… Now that I am grown I think her dress was from the civil war era or before. I frequently saw this apparition in my bedroom at night. None of the adults believed me then as I was just a small child, but I knew what I saw was real. It is awesome to finally get confirmation that I was not crazy growing up. Because this was not my only experience with the paranormal. I’ve had many but chose to keep it to myself because everyone told me it was in my imagination. So I am thankful to the investigators that have investigated the very haunted Museum on Potomac Street in Brusnwick, Maryland.
