Ohio University has a few different spots that are said to be haunted: The Brown House is haunted by donor Millie Brown, who peers out a window; also the phantom sounds of kids splashing in a long-gone pool have been heard in the back yard. The Delta Tau Delta fraternity house was said to be haunted by a poltergeist for a while, ever since 2 brothers stole a tombstone from nearby Simms Cemetery. The haunting stopped after they returned it. An apparition of a woman in 1950s duds was spotted in Jefferson Hall in 1996, along with lights switching on and off, toilet paper rolls unrolling and sounds like marbles being dropped. And a ghost called Laura resides in Crawford Hall. She died when she fell from a fourth-floor window.
