“feel the energy of the Iron Island Spirits”
"Feel the energy of the Iron Island Spirits as you tour the dimly-lit museum rooms Get drawn into the vortex of the basement where it is rumored that children were buried and see if you can catch the shadow woman in your pictures. Climb the ladder and view the attic area where spirits dwell and voices are heard. Visit the 1885 former church/funeral home that was featured on GhostHunters, Ghost Lab and My Ghost Story!" Ghost Hunters location. (Season 4 Ep 14 Sept 2008) The Iron Island Preservation Society of Lovejoy, Inc. was formed in 1994. The originators met in each others homes at the start and then rented an apartment and storefront at 1132 Lovejoy Street. The all -volunteer members met monthly and initiated their mission which is "to preserve and beautify the Iron Island neighborhood and improve the quality of life for the residents". An annual festival was run by the group and was held on Lovejoy Street for 13 years. The members hung dedicated American Flags on the light standards along the business corridor in the summer and put up Christmas decorations for the holiday season. They cleaned Hennepin Park, Davey Street Playground and the entrance to the Lovejoy neighborhood at William and North Ogden Streets. Their fundraising efforts allowed them to place a Welcome Sign at one of the main entrances into the City of Buffalo, The work of the Iron Island members is well-known throughout the area and several awards were presented to the society. In August, 2000, a businessman, Mr. Anthony Amigone, noticed an article in the Buffalo News which told of the preservation efforts of the society and he donated his 1895 former church/funeral home to the group to house their museum. In October, 2000, a Grand Opening was held at the new museum which was attended by family members of Mr. Amigone, members, friends and families and some elected officials. This building now houses a variety of mostly donated items, including a wooden altar from a neighborhood 1896 church, railroad items, military uniforms and much more.
Neat little museum filled with lots of strange artifacts from the local community. It's been featured on loads of ghost hunting shows, and is, allegedly haunted.
Best time to visit is on a Saturday, when there's a bit more action more volunteers at the museum.
