Willard Library

Last Wednesday's episode of TAPS, they did an investigation of Willard Library in Evansville, Indiana. Unfortunately, they were unable to find any evidence proving this building really is haunted. Many viewers of the ghost cams may disagree. Who knows if it really is or not.

The first reported sighting happened in 1937. A janitor grabbed a flashlight and headed to the basement. As he neared the furnace, he dropped his flashlight as he spotted a ghostly veiled lady dressed in glowing grey. Before he could regain his composure, she was gone. Ever since, the ghost has been known as the "lady in grey".

Who is the "lady in grey"? The most common story is that the ghost is actually that of Louise Carpenter, the daughter of the library's founder. She sued the board of trustees saying that her father was not well and unduly influenced in establishing the library. Unfortunately, she lost the suit and any claim to the library's property.

Now she supposedly haunts Willard Library and it'll continue to be that way until it is returned to the living heirs of the Willard Carpenter family.

Other stories say that the "lady of grey" is a ghost emigrated from a nearby cemetery or that of a woman who died in the library in its early days and since she liked the place so much, she remained there, jealous of any mortals who read her treasured books.

If you would like a chance to try and prove that Willard Library really is haunted, there are four cams set up there. I added the link to the list of other ghost cams. Do you think it is haunted? If so, who do you believe inhabits it?
