  • BW Baldwin Wallace College

Come to BW if You Want to Hear Some Ghost Stories!

Did you know that Baldwin Wallace is one of the most haunted campuses in America? We have two dorms in which residents have reported incidents of cold winds, visions, and strange noises.

The haunted dorm closest to the dorm I live in is Emma Lang Hall (which also doubles as a dining hall). The story goes that the woman who gave the building to the college intended it to be used only for a girl’s dormitory. The year that it was changed to coed, a tree fell on the dorm! People say that they have seen Emma Lang walking the halls of her dorm and sometimes confronting boys who live there. There is also a rumor that a Conservatory student died in an upstairs closet and haunts the fourth floor of the building.


Scary, isn’t it?

The other haunted building is Kohler Hall which is a dormitory for conservatory students. It was supposed to be a hospital and insane asylum back in the early 1900’s. There is a tunnel connecting Kohler and the BW chapel across the street that was said to be used to transport the sick from one building to the other. It has since been boarded up, but residents report hearing thumps and screams from behind the boarded door.
