Haunted History 
In 1882 Edwin S. and Lillian Dodge opened up the Acadia Ranch. More sanatorium than cattle farm, the ranch was the headquarters for people coming to the desert in hopes the arid atmosphere would cure diseases like tuberculosis.   It was then purchased by Annie Neal, the wife of the proprietor of the Mountain view Hotel. in the building.

The Acadia Ranch Museum is allegedly haunted by the spirit of a nurse who had apparently contracted TB from working with the sick people. They say her spirit walks the halls tending to her patients.

Other claims are the interior doors would be slammed shut and doors open on their own. Knocks and bangs that come from nowhere are heard.  Others heard voices and one instance was a claim of the head and shoulders of a person walk into the hospital room. During the restoration workers heard coughing and dubbed it a ghost named George who may have been a TB patient.

Equipment
The tour guides will have camera system set up to view various locations in the museum. If needed tour guests will be provided EM detectors and other equipment for free to utilize to try and catch evidence of the ranch’s spirits.  A valid driver’s license and credit card is required to be provided equipment. You can bring your own equipment if available
