Information
The Iron Island Museum
Built in 1895 as a popular Methodist-Episcopal church, it was eventually taken over in the 1950s by a funeral director and converted into a funeral home. Finally in 2000, Anthony Amigone donated the building to The Iron Island Preservation Society of Lovejoy, Inc. so that they could continue their efforts to preserve the history of the Iron Island neighborhood.

Now open to the public as a museum with a large collection of donated historical items, for $2 a person you can experience the rich history of the former railroad and maybe even meet the local spirits that make this museum their home. After being investigated by some paranormal groups, the members of the preservation society have embraced the paranormal history and offer late night lectures, ghost hunts, and seances for an additional fee. Please see the site below for rates and reservation details.

The museum was even featured on the popular Sci-Fi Channel series Ghost Hunters. Previously thought to have the ghost of a young boy wandering the rooms of the old funeral home where he was laid for his wake, after the TAPS investigation it is now believed that the ghosts of an older man and a woman are part of the ghostly world of The Iron Island Museum.
