Lincoln Memorial University - Grant Lee Hall

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  Lincoln Memorial University - Grant Lee Hall

The historic Grant Lee Hall dormitory building at Lincoln Memorial University was once part of a hotel, which caught fire in 1904, killing a woman and her child on the fourth floor. Her ghost has been seen in a red dress, including one day in the 1950s when the building caught fire again. She was witnessed at the fourth-floor window yelling for help. Witnesses also hear footsteps on the stairs, knocks at the doors, and doorknobs turning by themselves.

    I am alumni of LMU and yes Grant Lee is haunted. I was on the very top floor…no other floors above. Every night it sounded like a kid was playing “jacks” or “marbles”. I could even hear an old spinning top. This occured frequently. One night it smelled like someone had burnt bread in a toaster, but it wasnt nor al burnt toast because all I could do was stand in my room and cry. I just felt sad and couldn’t move. Just cry. At the end of the semester I opted to go back to the Liles Hall dormitory and never heard anything else. I still recall that sadness I felt that day & nothing in my life so far compares to hiw strong that emotion was.
