Illinois College was founded in 1829 and is believed to have several haunted buildings on campus. Sturtevant Hall and Beecher Hall are two locations where people have reported footsteps, strange noises and apparitions. According to talk around campus, Beecher Hall was once a medical building and the top floor was a space for storing cadavers. One of the ghosts that is said to haunt this hall is Williams Jenning Bryan. Another haunted spot is The Smith House, which is said to be haunted by its original owner's daughter, Effie, around whom many campus legends have been told. Whipple Hall is known to be the home to a Gray Ghost who has no face. A mischievous ghost named Gail, who died while living here, haunts Ellis Hall and Fayerweather House is haunted by Susie, who hanged herself in the closet of Room 5. Crampton Hall, the McGaw building and the Rammelkamp Chapel are also on the long list of Illinois College’s haunted places.
