Willard Library GhostThe Willard Library is purported to be haunted by a specter known as The Lady in Grey. The Willard Library itself is in the city of Evansville, Indiana. It opened its doors back in 1885. This is a beautiful Victorian Gothic building Willard Livrary is designed by James and Merritt Reid. It was inducted into the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
The Lady in Grey GhostIs the also know as the Library Ghost, Willard Ghost and Willard Library Gost. Originally alive.
Most people held and still hold the opinion that the "lady in grey" is actually the ghost of Louise Carpenter. The daughter of the library's founder. Louise once sued the library's Board of Trustees, claiming that her father was "of unsound mind and was unduly influenced in establishing Willard Library." She lost the suit and, as a result, her claim to any of the library's property. After her death, her spirit returned to Willard Library, the place that caused her so much grief during her life. Those who subscribe to this opinion say that she will continue to haunt the library until the property and its holdings are turned back over to the living heirs of the Willard Carpenter family.
The Grey Lady ghost was first reported to have been sigted in Willard Library in the late 1930s by a custodian.
On a cold, snow-covered night in the winter of 1937, this library employee trekked through the snowy cold for his nightly duty. The library's janitor came to the building at 3 a.m. to shovel coal into the heating furnace, ensuring warmth for the coming busy day.
Armed with his flashlight and gun, the janitor cautiously made his way to the unlit basement to fuel the fire. Though comfortable in his duty, he was always wary of any unexpected nighttime visitors. Suddenly, as he neared the furnace, he froze motionless and dropped his flashlight to the dusty basement floor. A look of amazement and fear overcame the normally docile janitor's face. Standing before him in that dark and dreary basement of Willard Library was a ghostly veiled lady dressed in glowing grey. In his astonishment, he managed to bend down and pick up his flashlight, noticing that even her shoes were grey.
Before the janitor could regain his composure, the image disappeared and he was once again in silent solitude. Frightened and confused, the janitor completely forgot about shoveling that coal into the furnace. He ran crazily from the basement and from Willard Library, never to return to either again.
The famed lady in grey did return. She has appeared many times to many different people in many different ways since that cold winter night in 1937: Numerous current and former Willard staff members have reported seeing a shadowy grey female apparition that appears suddenly and then vanishes into thin air.
Former Librarian Bettye Miller, alone in the library after closing time, suddenly heard water running forcefully on the second floor. She discovered that the faucet in the bathroom had been mysteriously turned on. In the spring of 1983, the faucet in the second floor lavatory turned itself on while one of the librarians was actually in the room. Two members of the Tri-State Genealogy Society, working alone in the library on, ironically enough, cemetery records were overcome with an unexplained strong scent of heavy perfume. (Note: Parapsychologists, scientists that study hauntings and apparitions, say that strange scents accompanying spectral manifestations are not at all uncommon). Willard employee Margaret Maier claims the "lady in grey," whose hauntings were being disrupted by construction, followed her home one evening during the renovation of the Children's Room. Miss Maier and her sister experienced an eerie draft of cold air, the feeling of an unseen presence, and...you guessed it...the strong scent of heavy perfume.
And on August 10, 2010 in the basement hallway. Psychics, lecturers, a policeme and several library employees have reported seeing the ghost, including Margaret Maier. And a library patron reported an encounter with the Grey Lady in the library elevator, pluss a local weathercaster who also reported an encounter with the spirit.
They say strange occurrences of unexplained happeings occure regularly. And there have been many other entities spotted. Odd items moved and or found. Even sometime furniture and books moved. Some feeling a tough on there hair or jewlery. Others feeling cold. Smelling perfume. Hearing odd noices. And even water running.
Countless speculations and opinions exist about whose ghost the famed "lady in grey" actually is. Some believed that the ghost emigrated from a nearby cemetery. Others say that a woman died in the building during its early days and that she liked the library so much that she never left. And she gets jealous when mortals read her treasured books.
This library has been investigated by several organizations including MESA (multi-energy sensor array), TAPS, and other teams looking for ghosts.
