Western Carolina University - The Moore Building

You are here Home  > Colleges and Universities >  Western Carolina University - The Moore Building

As rumor has it, in the mid-1960s a student was murdered after she refused a man’s amorous advances. She now is said to haunt the third floor, crying, screaming and pacing. The man was caught and served a few years in a mental hospital, but then was released. He passed away in the 1980s, and folks say the hauntings in the dorm, now turned into classrooms, has all but stopped. Students still claim to get the willies in the building, however.

  1. My sister lived in Moore for awhile during her time at WCU. She is as skeptical about ghosts and hauntings as they come. That said, she did remark that strange things happened at times. Lights flickering. The sounds of voices and footsteps when nobody else was around.
