In the summer of 2009, a student stayed in Mary Reynolds Babcock Hall in Winston Salem, North Carolina. Many students have reported that the Hall is haunted.
A large painting of Mary Babcock stands near the entrance of the doors.
The story goes, if you are polite and say hello to the painting. The ghost of Mary would not bother you.
Some of the students were skeptical about the paranormal and maybe don’t believe it. So some of the students decided to yell profanity and moon at the painting.
Unfortunately, an hour later, while walking the down the stairs, one student fell for no reason and sustained a broken leg. The student even witnesses the accident.
One student said:
“My own experience came about a week, in the middle of the night. We always left the doors to our rooms open because the dorm had no AC and it was cooler with the doors open. I woke up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, and as I sat up in bed. I noticed a figure moving past the door. I saw it as it had almost passed the door and all I saw the back end and tail of a long dress, very old-timey looking gown. I stepped into the hallway to investigate, but I saw nothing. I did, however, feel a cold breeze in the hallway which was unusual because usually, it was so hot. It was tough to sleep.”
If you ever are Winston Salem, definitely take the ghost tour of the university, you will not be disappointed.
Queen’s College in Charlotte North Carolina appears to be a hot bed of paranormal activity. In one dorm is the unhappy weeping ghost of a young woman who was in love with another woman. When her parents found out, she killed herself by cutting her wrists in a girls dorm. The next morning she had written her love letters to Julie in blood on the wall. Down thru the years students have seen Julie and the messages on the wall written in blood. Phantom knocks on walls and doors as well as doors opening and closing on their own.
Students claimed to hear the girl’s ghost weeping and some even claimed to see her with wrists cut walking in the bathroom all bloody and dripping of blood.
The apparitions of Civil War era soldiers are seen on campus as well as the phantom sounds of screams
Several years later another male student hung himself one night and the next morning his body was found swinging from a rope. Some students have claimed to see the ghost of the body swinging from his rope and have even called for Police only to have the Police find no hanging student when they arrive. And it has happened several times over the years.
Some students have claimed to see Civil War era soldiers in the area of Queens College and on the grounds.
And many students say in a small area on the college and over the years mentioned that some students committed suicide on campus.
