Moorhead State University - Weld Hall

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  Moorhead State University - Weld Hall

Moorhead State University’s Weld Hall has a legend or two that explain its ghost. Depending on whom you hear the story from, either a construction worker, a janitor, or a maintenance man fell to his death off of a roof, a ladder, or a spiral staircase. His apparition has been seen on the stage or in the building, floating, as it has no legs (perhaps this is because both were broken in the fall).

  1. Security Officer  |  

    I worked at the university as a security officer for seven years. Out of those years, I have had two weird experiences in Weld Hall. The first experiences occurred when my coworker and I walked into Weld Hall through the main corridor, to conduct a security check, when we both saw an orb, or what appeared to be an orb (light blue hazy light the size of a soccer ball), floating near the bottom of the stage. It was only seconds later it quickly floated into the brick wall, dissipating. While I and my coworker were trying to determine what we had just seen, the unknown object came back out of the wall, flew towards the stage, and then disappeared into thin air. The second incident occurred late at night, again, at approximately midnight. There were no classes, students, or staff in the building. When I and another coworker parked in front of Weld Hall we heard a piano playing within the building. We knew the Hall had a piano, located at the back of the stage so we decided to check it out. Who was in there that wasn’t supposed to be? The music was very loud and clear. As soon as my coworker and I keyed into the building and opened the door the music stopped. The lights were off in the Hall. We turned them on and searched the entire area, but yet we found no one! These are two of my personal experiences. However, in the time I worked there I heard several unexplainable stories from students, faculty, and staff.
