Celebrating and preserving the life of the last remaining Weighlock Building in America, the Erie Canal Museum is a Greek revival building, standing as a monument to the importance of the Erie Canal. Home to several ghosts, including a group of see-through children who play in the courtyard, a woman who was killed where the model canal boat now sits and a pair of arguing men, you’ll hear tromping through the 150-year-old hallways. Watch a video when the Haunted History Trail of New York State visited the Erie Canal Museum.
