Southeast Missouri State University’s Cheney Hall is rumored to be haunted by a female student who committed suicide in a bathtub. Folks say now the door slams by itself and unexplained noises are heard in the room. The Music Building is also said to be haunted by apparitions and slamming doors, and the Rose Theatre is believed to contain the ghost of Mary, a French trader’s wife who murdered her husband. It’s said that Mary likes to make herself known by playing tricks when a play with a violent storyline is put on. Other rumors about the theater involve the ghost of an old man and a blood stain on the concrete that can’t be removed.
