At Hamilton College’s North Residence Hall, a ghostly Revolutionary War-era messenger has been seen in the halls. The apparition has been known to point at people and disappear through walls. And two other buildings are said to be haunted by the spirits of family members who lived there when they were private residences: the Admissions Building and the Alumni House.
