Do you like ghost stories?

Heritage Hall is said to be home to a ghost (or two!) A bedroom is appropriately named the Ghost Room because of the number of “incidents” reported to have occurred in this room by visitors. If asked, our docents will happily share some of these visitor incidents as well as personal experiences with you.
