Ghosts

The ghost of Susy Clemens, daughter of Samuel (aka Mark Twain), is said to still wander the house. She died in the house from sickness after the family left for Europe. Susy made the decision to stay behind, not knowing they would never meet again.

Cigar smoke has been smelled by guests. Knocks and bangs are heard from empty rooms. Employees at the museum have seen figures walking the hallways, but these ghosts are never solid enough to identify.
