Rumored hauntings at the University of Central Missouri range from Hawkins Hall, where strange occurrences are attributed to a student who hanged himself, to Diemer Hall, where a bathroom sink has turned on by itself. Also noteworthy are North Ellis, where an alarm clock has flown across the room and an apparition showed up in a mirror, and Houts/Hosey Hall, which legend says is haunted by the ghost of Sarah, a pregnant student who committed suicide. At the closed Osborne/Phillips Hall, rumors abound that it was shut down because of a haunting, but as it turns out, it was closed for financial reasons. But Yeater Hall may take the cake as far as this campus is concerned. Here at the oldest resident hall on campus, folks have seen lights come on by themselves, heard footsteps, felt cold spots,
and spotted a shadow of a woman’s head.

  1. I lived in Yeater Hall my freshman year. The third floor was pad locked shut, only open for the Halloween haunted tours. The building was erected in the early 40’s and for a brief amount of time served as a place to stay for men in the war, since Whiteman Air Force Base is a hop and skip away from campus. Laura Yeater was the one whom opened Yeater Hall, an all girls’ dorm to this day. Since the building is historic, we were unable to have A/C. I’ve heard rumors if you had guys stay over, they would wake up with scratches on their backs, but I never had any over so I can’t confirm or deny that. The building was a bit eerie, but the only supernatural thing to happen to me was my closet door would be open a crack every morning when I woke up even when I knew I shut it the night before.
