Fort Sidney Museum and Post Commander’s Home is believed to be haunted by the ghost of a young officer’s wife. She broke her neck falling down some stairs in 1885, while trying to carry a load of laundry. When her husband found her, he had the stairs boarded up. In around the 1930s, witnesses began to hear the sound of someone walking up or down stairs, then falling, but they were puzzled because there weren’t any stairs to be seen nearby. The stairs were finally discovered again in 1975 and were restored, but access to them is blocked. The ghost is still said to be heard on the stairs from time to time.
