Black Nugget Museum, Ladysmith Poltergeist activity is reported and footsteps are heard. One psychic-medium claimed that the spirit is that of a First Nations woman whose remains are in the museum. Neighbours have seen an apparition in an upstairs window of a man with a handlebar moustache. The piano sometimes plays a few notes, as well.
