Among the phenomena seen and heard at this 1800s fort are the ghost of a cavalry officer nicknamed Old Bedlam who likes to tell visitors “Be quiet!” and a spirit the museum employees call George, who likes to open doors and startle people with the sound of footsteps. Reports say in the early morning, at reveille time, heavy boots sometimes can be heard tromping over the boardwalk in front of the barracks.
