(KSL News) -- When coal was discovered in the 1880's, people came to Utah's Carbon County from their native lands to work in the mines.
Today the mining camps are abandoned ghost towns, but they are filled with folklore from dozens of ethnic groups.
Just drop by the Helper Mining and Railroad Museum and listen:
Sue Ann Martell/Dir. Western Mining & Railroad Museum: "The most famous ghost that we have is called the cleaning lady & she actually appears as a fully-formed woman wearing older clothes cleaning the third floor. We've had visitors come down and say who is the lady on the third floor? She doesn't answer any of our questions. and we know it's cleaning lady."
