University Chapel - Auburn University

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  University Chapel - Auburn University

Originally haunted by a ghost dubbed “Sydney”, the spirit of a Confederate soldier who died there. Sydney reportedly manifested in the 20’s when an acting troupe took over the chapel and he began bedeviling them. Overactive theater students imaginations or evidence of an actual haunting, who knows, but reportedly Sydney followed the acting troupe to their new digs on campus, so either he was really committed to them, or they need to be committed.
