Robinson Rose House

Robinson Rose House was built in 1853 by Judge James W. Robinson, and the building was later used as a newspaper office, a railroad office, and other such offices. By 1987 nothing was left of the original building, so it was rebuilt using records and photos to look as it did back in the 1850s and now is the Old Town State Historic Park visitor center. Witnesses say the ghosts that live here occasionally show up as apparitions or cloudy mists, and they also may tinker with lights and pull at women’s hair. Footsteps also have been heard and the elevator has been known to operate by itself.
