A team from Paranormal Georgia was brought in to investigate what other parts of history may still be around. "I've seen someone standing next to me, I've smelled cigar smoke, I've heard footsteps when no one else was in the building," says museum founder Dan Cox.
The team set up cameras, recorders and special devices that pick up electromagnetic fields. It's believed when a spirit is present, it disrupts the electromagnetic field.
The group walked through the building for several hours asking sometimes, "Is anyone here with us." One investigator asked "are you a Union sympathizer?" No answer, but the group recorded several hours of audio and video that they're stilling going through. We'll let you know what they find.
Whatever spirits still reside at the museum "don't feel evil or cold," said Cox. "I've never been slimed like you see in Hollywood."
