Paranormal History

Joel Clough brutally stabbed his girlfriend to death. Sentenced to death, he escaped from the prison but was quickly recaptured. He spent his final days in the death row cell known as the dungeon. Clough was hanged in 1833. Shortly after his death, guards and inmates heard moaning and the sounds of rattling chains from the empty cell. They also claimed to see apparitions and items levitating in the cell.

During the restoration of the building in 1999, workers reported strange events such as loud noises, voices, and quick temperature changes. Missing items turned up in rooms the workers had not even entered. Dozens of paranormal and ghost research teams from across the country are drawn to the museum to investigate these and many other inexplicable events.
