Eastern Illinois University – Charleston, IL

pemberton-hallA ghost named Mary haunts the Pemberton Hall female dormitory at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL.  Her spirit moves silently from room to room, making sure doors are locked, turning stereos and TVs off and on, and generally behaving like a housemother from the Other Side. In 1981, one of the girls left her door slightly open late one night, and the apparition drifted into the room as if it were checking on her.  According to legend, Mary is the spirit of a counselor bludgeoned to death by a crazed custodian on the 3rd floor of Pemberton Hall in the 1920’s.
