Lake County’s Tragic History

It is the Halloween season and naturally, thoughts turn to tales of fright and tragedy. But often, history doesn’t need made up ghost stories to frighten you or wild tales of tragedy. Death and tragedy are a part of life and are part of the stories we tell in the museum. Some of our artifacts reflect famous tragedies, horrible crimes, sad days and more than a few ghost tales. We invite you to come by the museum to see these artifacts and hear these stories as they are a part of the life and history of Lake County.
