Mount Saint Mary’s College and Seminary

Emmitsburg, Maryland

BUILT: 1808
OPERATION TIME: 1808 to present


The Mount Saint Mary’s College and Seminary is the oldest independent Catholic college in America, having been founded in 1808. The college’s former president, Reverend Simon Bruté, died in 1839. He has been seen following groups of students on the sidewalks of the campus, though they have all been dead for years.

Room 252 has been the site of many odd occurrences. The priests and boys reported an unseen entity throwing furniture and items throughout the room, and it is said to be impossible to keep furniture in any corner of the room. There have also been numerous electrical problems even though tests always come back normal.
