Housing a large collection of contemporary metalwork, the National Ornamental Metal Museum has roughly 3000 items on permanent display, not counting traveling exhibitions. Its four buildings were once a Marine hospital in the late 1800s and then a Civil War hospital, consisting of a nurse’s quarters, a doctor’s quarters, soldiers’ quarters, and the hospital itself. The basement of the doctor’s quarters was a morgue with a body chute. The 1979 renovations turned up the strange occurrences that still continue today. Ghostly Marines and voices, and a pervasive feeling of being watched have been reported, and ghost investigators have turned up EVPs.
