If you're a history nerd like me you gotta check out the Merchant's House Museum. Sarah Tredwell lived here for decades and the interior of the house remained untouched as the neighborhood drastically changed. I went to a candlelight ghost tour here around Halloween too, and it was super awesome. They told ghost stories and played real EVP's captured in the house. You'll definitely learn a lot at this historic house.
