Ghost Hunters investigated Saratoga Springs’ Canfield Casino in 2010.  The investigation was prompted by reports of unexplained phenomena in the 140-year-old landmark building in Congress Park.

According to Jamie Parillo, Executive Director of the Saratoga Springs History Museum, while unusual events had taken place sporadically in the building in recent years, they accelerated after the opening of an exhibition of antique clothing once owned and worn by members of some of Saratoga Springs most prominent first families, now all deceased.

Featuring three floors of exhibits as well as dynamic programs throughout the year, the Saratoga Springs History Museum welcomes visitors and members to learn more about this famous city and the people that made it so.
