Join road scholar Alan Brown for a storytelling about ghost stories from Alabama's college campuses.

Lineville City Library

Alabama's colleges and universities have generated a body of ghostlore that reflects the state's long history of higher education, war, and racial strife. Indeed, many of the state's signature ghost stories originated in late-story-telling sessions in college dormitories and apartment houses. Every college campus has at least one resident ghost, but for the sake of time, this presentation will focus on Alabama's most haunted colleges and universities:

Springhill College – The Ghostly Math Professor
Walker College ( Bevill State Community College ) – The Ghost of Dr. Carl Jesse
Auburn – The Ghost of Sidney Grimlett
Athens State University – The Ghosts of Abigail Burns and Florence Brown
University of Montevallo – The Ghosts of President Reynolds, Dr. Trumbauer, and Condie Cunningham
University of West Alabama – Ghosts of the library, Webb hall, Bibb Graves Hall, and Brock Hall
University of North Alabama – Ghost of the Book Store
University of Alabama – Ghost of the Jason's Shrine and the Tri-Delta Sorority House
Judson College – The Ghostly Organist
Huntingdon College – The Red Lady
