Freaky Friday: Washington College

Our reader Ella told us to explore the ghost stories at Washington College and we are sure glad she did! One of the oldest colleges in the country, Washington College seems to also be one of the most haunted campuses we have come across yet. Keep reading if you think you can handle all of the ghostly tales we uncovered!

Middle Hall

The creaks and groans of Middle Hall are expected considering the building’s long history on the campus, yet one student’s end of the year surprise had no clear-cut explanation. Having hung up a brand new poster when classes started, it came as quite a shock to a WC student when he took it down to find what looked like the handprints of a child covering the back. The poster hadn’t moved from its spot all year, leaving most to believe this could be nothing but the work of the paranormal.

Minta Martin Hall

There are two spooky stories from this building; we’ll leave it up to you to decide which is more frightening!

The bathroom of Minta Martin once had stalls with doors on hinges that kept them shut. A female student was looking in the mirror when she saw all of the stall doors open at the same angle & then heard all of the toilets flush in unison. The hinges on the stalls would have made this physically impossible without someone – or something – holding them open, but the student did not stick around to find out the exact cause. I can’t blame her, I have goosebumps just thinking about it!

Our second story features another female student who was one of few people in the building to stay behind during a break. She woke up in the middle of the night to what felt like a cat walking on her bed, then proceeding to curl itself up to take a nap. When she went to sit up, her body felt as though something invisible was holding her down.
