The Molly Brown House itself hosts several Halloween inspired events each year with both their Victorian Horrors Tours and Ghosties and Goodies Tea. (Check those out at http://www.mollybrown.org.) Both Margaret and her husband J.J. have been seen roaming the halls of their former home and J.J. who enjoyed smoking a pipe and cigars must still be enjoying these items in the afterlife because the scent of the smoke can still be detected on occasion and the unique thing about this was that J.J. was not allowed to smoke in the house when Margaret was around. Margaret's mother passed away in the home and she is sometimes seen standing at one of the windows. Occasionally, the window blinds will go up and down without any seen assistance. Rocking chairs also rock without assistance and the tinkling of piano keys is sometimes heard. The dining room hosts a ghost that rearranges items and has been photographed sitting at a table wearing her Victorian best. Keep in mind that the home served as a type of halfway house for girls and activities that could lead to paranormal activity are a possibility. So is the Molly Brown House haunted? That is for you to decide.
