There is a report that a ghost dwells in the old hotel. It is supposed be the spirit of the hotel’s publicans wife who fell down the staircase in 1913 and died some 3 days later in hospital. It is believe that her fall was not an accident. Some of the staff as well as visitors have reported either seeing or feeling her presence and there have also been several incidents within the museum which have been accredited to her.
