Museums of Old York Haunted?
During the days of colonial witch hunting the museum served as the town hall of the village of York. There was a lady who was hung right in front of the town hall and since her death there have been many reports of doors opening and closing by themselves; cold spots; and objects changing positions. Local town residents would be quick to tell you about a figure of a woman who walks down the road by herself. She is thought to be “The White Witch”.
Even children in the day care located just across the museum have told of a nice and friendly lady in white who comes over to play with them during recess!
The York Village Historical Museum has nice historic museum buildings and has renowned education programs. Visitors have the opportunity to experience more than 300 years of English heritage, as well as get to listen to the tales of prisoners, sea captains and families who have travelled far to find a better life there.
