Western Mining and Railroad Museum

The 1914 building that houses the historical museum used to be a hotel, and is rumoured to be haunted. The apparition of a woman in an old-fashioned dress has been seen on the third floor staircase, and a phantom piano player has been heard (but never seen) in the mining room. The museum now periodically offers ghost tours, in order to document and share the stories of employees and visitors.
