Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Sisters who live in the sorority house have had plates thrown at them in the kitchen and break when they hit the wall. Closet doors in the attic fly open and slam shut when there is no one up there. From the first floor, you can hear people walking around and moving furniture upstairs when no one else is home.

The Sigma Nu House in Akron has been haunted for many years. The house was purchased by Sigma Nu from a sorority on the campus. Legend has it, one of the sorority members hung herself in the boiler room at the house. Many of the Sigma Nu members have had run-ins with her spirit. Still today, no member of Sigma Nu will go into the boiler room by themselves.

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

The Hower House, currently owned by the University of Akron, has a well-known female ghost purported to be one of the Howers. She apparently is angry due to husband’s infidelity and likes to scare male workers and guests. There are also reports that one of the fraternity houses nearby is also haunted, and this ghost has been seen by students. The ghost is that of a young girl servant who died in the home when it was still used as a residence and is buried in a hard to find grave located behind the house. She has been seen both in the house itself and on the grounds outside.If anyone knows the identity of the female spirit who likes to scare male workers and guests please let me know.
