Warden's House Museum

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Warden's House Museum

The Warden’s House Museum, built in 1853 as the home of the Minnesota Territorial Prison warden, is said to be haunted. Trudy, the daughter of Henry Wolfer, last warden to live here, got married and moved away. Right after she had a son, she died appendicitis, and her father raised the baby in the Warden’s House. Witnesses say there is an entity here of a woman with stomach pains who is looking for a baby. The sound of shoveling coal also has been heard in the basement.

  1. This was the Warden’s house during the period that the Younger brothers were guests of the state of MN at the Stillwater Penitentiary. This haunting is one of the most studied in the old Northwest. Ghost hunters from both the St. Croix Paranormal Investigators and the Johnsdale Paranormal Group have visited this site (it’s now a museum open to the public) and posted their bone-chilling evidence on-line, including both video and EVP. You won’t believe what you are seeing and hearing–VERY persuasive!
