Folks say General Dodge himself is still hanging about the grounds. If you take a guided tour through the building, you may catch a glimpse of him sitting in his rocking chair. Around the grounds, light flashes and the smell of fire have been reported. Another strange occurrence that may happen here: If you stand in the middle of the street at dusk some say you can hear the ghostly sound of two men arguing. Please make sure there are no cars coming!
