Bowdoin College boasts two centuries in higher education, and that rich history is laden with curious tales and ghostly happenings. Eerie legends about Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Joshua Chamberlain, and other distinguished graduates are still whispered in the halls of their alma mater. A dungeon complete with skulls and skeletons hidden beneath Appleton Hall plays to society's darkest fears about secret college societies. The many untimely deaths at Hubbard Hall lend credence to its haunted reputation. Misfortunes of Coleman Hall residents might have a connection with the building's site atop the remnants of the long-closed Medical School of Maine. Author David Francis reveals Bowdoin's spooky and maybe even ghostly history.
