Montevallo Ghost Stories

February 6, 1908 Birmingham Age-Herald
For most, Halloween is a time for ghost stories and folklore. The University of Montevallo is no different. Our campus has many stories, sightings, and unsettling accounts of massacres, deadly accidents, and other macabre events. Each year, during fall semester, Carmichael Library is inundated with curious, adventure-seeking students interested in these spooky tales. Eager paranormal enthusiasts may be happy to know that Condie's door is on display near the Ask Here desk. Additional displays offer information on this tale, other campus ghost stories, and the history behind the folklore.     

Main Hall
Packets of UM Ghost Stories are available for check out at the circulation desk. 

For more information on the history behind some of these stories, please visit the Milner Archives page on Facebook. Please "like" the page and receive updates on this and other bits of Montevallo history.
