At Newberry College’s Keller Hall, a woman committed suicide by jumping from the bell tower during the Civil War era. She was distraught over the death of her boyfriend in the war. Witnesses have heard phantom screams coming from the tower and seen the woman’s apparition up there as well. And at the college’s Kinard Hall dorm, the second floor has a resident ghost. Students say it opens windows, cabinets and drawers and turns on water faucets.

  1. I live in the Smeltzer Residence Hall. I have heard and seen a little girl running through the halls in Smeltzer. I have done an EMF reading with one of my friends and it read 98. My friend and I looked up and there was this man standing there with no jaw and one arm. He was dressed in a civil war military outfit. Ever since then, my friend and I have had trouble with our windows, sinks, and lights. The windows would be open when no one opened them, sinks would be turned on full blast or won’t drain with a black residue when we try to remove the water, lights would be cut on with no one at the light switch.

  2. I haven’t heard any screaming but I’ve seen a little girl running through the paths of the college and in the cemetery beside the college
