Norman Hall (originally known as P. K. Yonge Laboratory School) is an historic academic building on the eastern campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. It was designed by architect Rudolph Weaver in the Collegiate Gothic style, and built in 1932. It originally housed the university’s research and development primary and secondary schools, but now is the principal building of the university’s College of Education. It is located on U.S. 441, near the southwest corner of S.W. 3rd Avenue and S.W. 12th Street in Gainesville. On January 26, 1990, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Supposedly several children died in an elevator accident here years ago, and their spirits are still heard and seen traipsing about the third floor at night, laughing and running without a care in the world.
