The Fort Lewis Military museum is known for a whole host of paranormal activity, but perhaps its most famous ghost is the silent film cowboy. According to legend, during a 1927 filming of the film "Patent Leather Kid," an actor was murdered on the second floor. At this time the museum was a hotel, named Red Shield Inn. Guests to the hotel often recounted stories of a disgruntled apparition who would appear in a cowboy costume. Eventually an exorcism was performed in order to expel the ghost. The cowboy ghost no longer makes appearances but it is believed that other specters haunt the museum.
