Now a museum, with an antique shop as well, the Old Opera House in Arcadia has a number of weird goings-on. One worker tells of hearing the distinctive noise of a crowd in the old auditorium, but of course when she went to investigate, there was no one there. The sounds of children’s laughter and footsteps are heard, and the figure of a young girl has been seen in a second floor corner window.
