This museum has been completely restored and renovated, but it was once the town library. Locals say that in the basement, books would often fly off the shelves, and shadowy figures have been seen. Also, items would disappear only to turn up again later.

  1. There was a janitor who would have to vacuum each stair one by one. No matter what he did, no matter how close the outlet he plugged into was, his vacuum would always stop on the third stair. He tried a new vacuum. No change. He tried a longer cord. No change.
    Finally he just decided to get used to it, because it never changed.
