Clinton Arena, aka Edward W. Stanley Recreation Center, is an indoor arena that was built in the late 1940s. The building was rebuilt in 1954 after it was destroyed in a fire. It is said to be haunted by a ghost some call Lucy. Local legend says strange things happen when her name is called. Strange noises have been heard, especially when the lights are off, and the seats in the stands are sometimes folded down as if someone unseen is sitting there. A puck once came flying out of the stands and hit the glass when some kids were in the arena.
