Elon University - Real Haunts in Elon NC
With over a century of history in Elon, Elon University has amassed its fair share of ghost stories related to a 1923 fire that ripped across the campus and burned most of it to the ground. It was quickly rebuilt, and legend says that Mary, a student that jumped to her death after being trapped in a burning dormitory, is unhappy about the school moving on without her. In addition to whispering to students while they sleep, Mary has been said to break mirrors, disrupt electrical currents, and sometimes appear as an apparition. The actual events surrounding the legend are sketchy as best, considering there were no recorded fatalities from the fire, nor was the dormitory affected- but students swear by the occurences and their stories appear to be rather compelling.
