Moravian College dates back to the 1700s. In the 1800s it was a girls’ seminary and hospital, and a ghostly nurse and an occasional bandage patient are said to walk the halls. Several buildings on campus are said to house ghosts as well: Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority House was once an estate house, in which the maid Alicia became pregnant by the owner. When he found out about the baby, he threw Alicia down a staircase that has since been removed. Alicia is said to haunt the building, making noises, turning on and off the attic light, and turning over pictures of men. Comenius Hall’s namesake is said to haunt his building as a light that moves back and forth on the top floor. A Revolutionary War-era nurse is said to haunt the Music Building, and three spirits of people who hanged themselves here in the 1960s are said to linger in the Rau Dormitory. At Wilhelm Dormitory, banging and scratching sounds are said to come from the walls at night.
