T.W. Harvey High School

Monday, February 8th, 2010

This high school’s original building is said to the haunted. Classrooms on the second floor fall victim to the hauntings where the ghosts turn off electronic equipment. The theater is the most haunted part of the building, however. It is said that a girl had died while in the theater along with a drama instructor who died of a heart attack. Lights turn on when they’re not plugged in, stage lights change colors, other lights fall barely missing witnesses, and things mysteriously move on their own. There is an overwhelming smell of perfume at times, whispers can be heard when no one else is there, and there’s a feeling of being watched. The local school board denies the hauntings are valid.
