Illinois State University - Williams Hall

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  Illinois State University - Williams Hall

Illinois State University’s Williams Hall was the site of the university’s first library, and is thought to be haunted by the spirit of the first librarian, Angie Milner. Even though a new library was eventually built in her name, and the old one was turned into Williams Hall, the ghost prefers to stay in her original workplace, Williams Hall. There is still an old room in Williams Hall where the old and rare books are kept, and footsteps have been heard in this room when no one is there. Sometimes, the books are found oddly stacked, or newly bound books will turn up just as tattered as before. A few students have seen the librarian’s apparition here as well.
