This historical society and museum was formerly a schoolhouse and a hospital, and staff believe the thirteenth oldest historic museum in the state is haunted. Built in the mid-nineteenth century, staff say the county museum has its fair share of history; and ghost stories. The first apparition seen is a young boy, who has been seen staring down into the street from the upper floor. He has been known to play with visitors children, and has been seen in various rooms throughout the building. A spectral lady in an old-fashioned dress has been seen staring down into the street, and is regarded by staff as a somewhat stern presence. She is often associated with the apparition of an elderly lady seen in the parlour room, who hanged herself in an upstairs room. They are often seen together, causing some to believe they are mother and daughter. Staff also believe they have a resident poltergeist, who throws objects and plays tricks on staff and visitors.
