Michigan Firehouse Museum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Michigan Firehouse Museum

Michigan Firehouse Museum is housed in an 1898 building that, ironically caught fire twice: once in 1901 and again in 1922. Fire Chief Alonzo Miller passed away in the second fire, and he is thought to linger here in spirit. Witnesses have described knocks, bangs, voices, whispers, and doors that open and close on their own.

    1. Good try, on the irony of the second fire, however, Alonzo did not die until 1940 of a heart attack following a fire call. He was my great grandfather. I have had an experience however at the forestation when I walked near the tower door…it opened spontaneously without assistance.

    2. When we went there, there were two occasions in which I felt a static tingle on my arm, its hard to describe but I’ve never had that feeling before?!? It made me come home and look to see if thae place was haunted!
