Kemp Hall International House, or I-House, is said to be haunted by a ghostly Lady in Red. She is believed to be Mrs. A. E. DeMange, former owner of the mansion. She passed away after living here only a year, in 1908. Mr. DeMange sold it to the Illinois Weslayan University in 1911. Now, Mrs. DeMange’s ghost is said to appear in the mirror of the master bedroom in her red dress.

  1. I lived in Kemp Hall from Sep 1970 through May if 1970 and Sep 1970 through May 1972. I personally witnessed both the lady and her husband on more than one occasion, with others who can verify the sightings.
