Hiwan Homestead Museum has a 25-room 1893 log lodge as well as its other buildings.

The apparition, witnesses say, is a grayish-white figure in a long nightgown. The ghost is used to explain footsteps, the sound of a rocking chair, and photographic anomalies.

    1. I grew up next the homestead. Played in every room, circa 1962. Everyone said it was haunted. It was definitely a spooky place. Returned as a teenager and slept in the room that opens to the chapel. Had a definite experience with what could have only been the resident spirit, Mrs. Douglas.
