The manor house is believed to be haunted. A tale is told about a prospective student who walked in and asked a man who was playing a piano for directions, but the man just kept on playing as if he hadn’t heard her. The student left in a huff, then turned to see the piano player looking at her. He laughed demoniacally and disappeared.

  1. My name is Jeff Conroy and I was a student at Goddard college. In 1995 in the fall semester. I was drumming in the hay barn theatre. Late at night .when I noticed at the beginning of the theatre, there appeared in one of the doorways, a person. The exit signs above the door emitted a soft luminous light that castes an eerie glow through the theatre. The person then proceeded to walk to the third row seating and proceeded to sit in the third chair. I then with a creeping sense of dread, peered closer and as I was no more than ten feet from the person I then to my horror realized this person had no form it looked at me with it’s head positioned in my direction. No facial features no descriptive form just black. It scared the living day lights out of me. here I sat engrossed in my playing and in the span of two minutes this being and I engaged. It actually casually walked up to the chair as if I wouldn’t have a problem acknowledging the being it was a surreal and visceral experience. It made me realize these beings are of supernatural nature. This story I swear upon

    I went to Goddard, I graduated Spring 1994 & was no “third row seating”, because there was no permanent seating. Very creative story; however it REAKS of total BS, sorry.

    • Actually I’m remarking upon the temporary chairs that were placed there I have no reason to apply fictitious cause to this story and there were folded up chairs that comprised the seating when I imply seating I didn’t include that there were permanent chairs bolted into the theatre

  3. The key is for people not to rule out what supersedes the laws of physics too much pragmatism can lead a person down a sterile avenue where life is solely structured by corpeal constructs where the mysticism of life is devoid in human nature JC

    I have a couple of friends who went to Goddard college and they both told me that the grounds of the college are haunted.
