Francisco Fort Museum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Francisco Fort Museum

The Francisco Fort Museum is an 1862 adobe plaza complete with a saloon, a school, a blacksmith shop and many relics from Native Americans, settlers, farmers, ranchers and miners. Some say it has a ghostly floating lady in white in its west wing, a haunted piano that plays music by itself, flickering lights, another apparition who carries a candle, and a rocking chair rocks that rocks by itself.

We have gotten voices in the school building the child’s piano playing and whistle and bang on the wall in the east building! Our investigatior being attacked by a man in the medical room!
