Here, objects have been known to move by themselves or mysteriously disappear, and strange sounds abound. Folks say the distinct sound of a cat scratching on a scratching post come from the executive director’s office. It’s a mystery, since the place was formerly an undertaking business, and a cat doesn’t seem to fit in with the scenario.

  1. I was at the museum on Sunday Aug 6, 2017. I was on the second floor just beginning my tour. I was standing in the middle of the room when I felt a cold air draft like feeling up and down my whole backside like a large person had walked by and I looked behind me and no one was any where behind me. It was very cold and very intense and I could distinctly feel it from my head to my feet and it was not coming from the ceiling like from a ceiling vent.

  2. My son who is a medium and I were at the Civil War Medical Museum on the 2nd floor nine years ago when I started feeling dizzy and had to sit down. I asked my son if he could see anything how I was feeling and that the museum is supposed to have 6 – 7 spirits haunting it. My son said “It’s closer to 70.” He was seeing orbs all over the place on the 2nd floor. That museum has fragments of bone, instruments that were used on people in surgery and pictures of soldiers that underwent treatment. It is no wonder that the place is haunted! Once we left the 2nd floor my dizziness left and my son stopped seeing orbs.
