Ghost Tour Map 

Marie Mount Hall - At one time, Miss Mount supposedly lived in the building in a special dean's apartment. There she allegedly plays the piano on stormy nights in the hall named for her, and members of the Maryland Ghosts and Spirits Association detected the presence of several other spirits in Marie Mount Hall during an investigation in October 2002. Doors were opening and shutting on their own, toilets flushing when no one was there, and matches blowing out when all the doors and windows were closed. Is one of our most notorious haunted buildings?

McNamee Cemetery

You might have walked by a hundred times and never noticed, but there's a cemetery on campus. The McNamee family sold the university part of its land in 1938, which included its family cemetery. It's since been bricked over to prevent people from disturbing the graves. Or is it to keep those in the graves from disturbing us?

The inn has been the site for other unexplained occurrences—a vase of flowers appearing on its own, footsteps overhead when one is alone, a face peering out of an inn window when the building is unoccupied. A Confederate soldier has also been spotted on campus, an echo of the occupation of the campus by Confederate and Union troops during the Civil War. Two men apparently dueled near the hitching post in front of the Rossborough. To one of the third floor rooms and died there.  Blood supposedly stains the floor of one of these rooms. Other members of the campus community report hearing the sound of marching feet near

Spirits have also been detected in where workers found human remains under a sink while the building was undergoing renovation, mysterious smells drilling had released fumes and ashes left over from the disastrous Thanksgiving weekend fire of 1912, and ghosts are rumored to inhabit. The building was originally called Science Hall when it was constructed, and some people believe that cadavers were dissected in the bowels of this Victorian structure.

H. J. Patterson Hall (Steinberg Castle) - a campus employee entered H. J. Patterson to complete some routine maintenance work.  He made his way up to the attic and began his labors.  As he was working, he felt an eerie presence enter the room.  When he looked around, he saw a strange, misshapen shadow dart across the wall.  The worker insists that he was alone and that the shadow could not have been another maintenance worker.

The Diamondback Office- a hardworking ghost may haunt The Diamondback office, located upstairs in the South Campus Dining Hall building: Books that were usually stuck on the shelves have been rearranged, and the managing editor's papers and clutter have been organized when nobody with keys to the office was around.
