Guided ghost tours are held on Thursday from 6:30–7:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:30–11:30 a.m. Guides tell spooky tales as they lead groups through The Iron Island Museum, a building with a history that dates back more than 125 years. As groups meander through each room, they learn of the building's evolution from a church into a funeral home and hear stories about the lost souls who allegedly still haunt its halls. The guides also highlight the historical relics within, including soldiers' uniforms and a wooden church altar crafted in 1896.

The Iron Island Museum

Shadows dart across the wall, a strange voice emerges from thin air, and you get the eerie feeling that you’re being followed. This is no ordinary place. The Iron Island Museum's paranormal history has captured the minds of countless visitors and has been featured on TV programs such as Ghost Lab and Ghost Hunters. Originally built as a church in 1883, the house later became a funeral home in the late 1950s, during which time it hosted more than 1,000 wakes. The business eventually shut down, and in 2000, the building was donated to The Iron Island Preservation Society of Lovejoy, which made a startling discovery: 24 canisters of cremated remains had been left behind.

Today, an all-volunteer staff leads tours of the church's vaulted ceilings, stained-glass windows, and themed rooms. The church showcases hundreds of historic relics, including military uniforms, railroad items, and a wooden altar that dates backs to 1896. However, the museum's biggest draws can't be seen, at least not most of the time. Guides and visitors stay alert for signs of paranormal activity and look for chances to communicate with what they consider to be some of the building's resident ghosts. The staff has even taken recordings that play back the voices of unknown figures saying things such as "I'm cold," and "Why don't they make pants for ghosts?"
