Yunker Farm/Children’s Museum Ghosts and Strange Events:
A particular door in the Children’s Museum becomes unlocked regularly without good explanation. There is only one person with a key and that person is no where in the the vicinity. A variety of ghostly activities take place here. Employees call the resident ghost “Vanessa”. Often, staff report feeling like they are not alone even when they are.
