Brick thrown through window of historic Columbus museum

The Kelton House Museum & Garden serves as a rich source of local history after converting a historic home into a museum dedicated to 19th century life in Columbus.

If you’re into this sort of thing, it also claims to be one of the city’s most haunted locations.

Late last week, however, the historic spot became the victim of a modern-day crime. According to a Facebook post from Kelton House, a brick was thrown through one of the spot’s large parlor windows.


A statement from the Kelton House said no one was hurt in the incident, and no “artifacts or window curtains” were damaged.

“This is a great reminder to stay vigilant your personal safety at all times. If you see anything out of the ordinary, do not be afraid to report it to the police,” the statement reads.

Kelton House also included a link to a donation fund the museum is using for restoration efforts.
