Location History

The Ray County Museum building was built as a county home (poor farm) in 1910 at the cost of $19,491, which included wiring, plumbing, & heating. Built in the shape of a “Y” with 14,424 square feet of floor space, the building has three floors with 54 rooms, eight masonry walls which are 14″ thick up to the roof, and fire doors at the wing entrances. The side porches are approximately 200 square feet each. The building rectangle would cover 1/3 of an acre. It was used as a Poor Farm until the 1960s and was used as a nursing home until the early 1970s. In the 1970s, the building became the Ray County Museum.

Investigators Notes

Becky Ray: Another wonderfully historic location that I will return to as a tourist.
While not many unexplainable things happened during our visit, several as-yet unexplained reports make this a place worthy of more investigation.
During our time there, both Miranda and Bryan reported hearing female voices down the hallway. When Shawn went to check it out, he found nothing, but one of the museum employees sitting outside on the porch reported seeing a woman dressed in white follow Shawn up the stairs.
