Seneca Falls Historical Museum includes the mansion built in 1855 by Edward Mynderse, who is believed to reside here still despite his death long ago. Legend has it that when Mrs. Leroy (Ellen) Partridge bought the place in 1875 and began to alter it, Edward was unhappy. And to show it, his ghost stopped clocks and turned pictures backward, thought to be a hint that he wanted the place to go back to the way it used to be. But Edward has become a friendly and helpful ghost now that his home is a museum. He is said to help look after the place, and once rattled a china cabinet to aid the staff in finding a tiny bat that had long been eluding his capturers and was hiding there. But visitors to the museum should be prepared: Edward’s is not the only ghost rumored to linger here!
