Louisburg College - Real Haunted Place
The ghost stories at the college start in its Main Building, which was converted into a hospital for the Confederates during the Civil War. Almost reminiscent of the main character from Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun, the building is apparently haunted by a young boy who attempts to make noises despite lacking a face.
The dormitories are also believed to be haunted, with Merritt Dorm being the source of slamming doors, phantom faucets, cold spots, radio interference, and occasional spirit sightings. The Kenan Girls Dorm is said to be haunted by Mrs. Kenan herself, whose activities on the fourth floor result in visible green glowing.

THE STORIES ARE TRUE
I was a student at Louisburg College from 1997-1999 loving in Merritt hall. I never heard any stories before I started experiencing weird things going on in my dorm room. It started out as our sink would drip, drip, drip at night, escalating to running, then gushing water, sometimes filling up the sink and overflowing onto the floor if we didn’t wake up and catch it in time. The shower would turn on by itself. Multiple times we would fine household items in the shower. I would regularly wake up to the sounds of feet shuffling on the carpet, random screams of women (possibly real? It was college). The worst was in the middle of the day when I was studying, the heavy drapes flew open for no reason. No one can ever explain that. You got used to it after a while. Oh yeah, and the main building has a 4th floor. Don’t go up there. It’s super creepy.Posted 10/17/18
