I was scrolling through the haunted places in Iowa and wanted to suggest adding the Lennox College campus in Hopkinton. A family friend is the mayor of the little town and said when people stop by for a tour, they’ve seen a woman in one of the dorm hall windows and it’s said she’s waiting for her fiance to return from the war (only two male students at the school weren’t drafted). A young girl asked about “the lady in the window” when she went on a tour with her family, but when everyone else looked, there was no one there. No one has done any kind of investigation yet as to whether or not any of these sightings are supported, but there has been more than one case of seeing the woman.

  1. Have a friend who’s grandma attended the college. He was there with his civil war reenacting group, one of them had a spirit box trying to contact any spirits, he said I love you grandma and she responded I love you ” his name.” While they were inside my friends girlfriend was outside and saw a curtain move on a different floor they were on. All this happened about 10 at night.

    My family and I got to go through the houses by ourselves. One room caught me off guard. A while back a girl attending this college got pregnant at an early age. Her parents did not like this, so they decided to send her away to get an abortion, but it was illegal. So, the daughter returned to her dorm room but had an infection. She died on the very bed sitting in that room and I tell you that room was colder than any other room I had entered and there was an eerie feel in there. I highly suggest checking the Lenox college out. You can see the room where this girl died in the Dolittle manor.
