DESCRIPTION/HISTORY:

Knight Hall is handsome building that is a long, rectangular shaped, red stone building with 3 floors and a basement. The windows are long, rectangular and trimmed in orange. It houses student services and administration offices.

The University of Laramie was funded in 1886, when the Territorial Governor F. E. Warren sponsored a bill which provided land and money for its beginning. The University of Laramie opened on Sept. 6th, 1887.

Ex governor, Dr. Hoyt became the President of the College and got it off to a great start. The first building was the Liberal Arts College.

Knight Hall is one of the older buildings on this now thriving campus, and was originally built to be a dorm in the early part of the 20th century, as its architecture and craftsmanship suggest. Hoyt Hall, and Ross Hall were also probably dorms as well at one point.

HISTORY OF MANIFESTATIONS:

The Laramie Cemetery used to be in the area under Hoyt Hall, Ross Hall and Knight Hall. It goes to reason that Indians as well as white settlers were buried in this cemetery.

Recently, when construction workers were digging up the area between Knight Hall and the Library, remains were found. It seems that not all the graves were moved, or the spirits were unhappy about being disturbed! UH OH!

MANIFESTATIONS:

Entities of Indians have made Knight Hall their home, and are a bit upset that their graves were disturbed. They seem to be most active during the evening.

The Basement seems to be the spookiest place in this building.

The living have heard the sound of beating drums, coming from some unseen ceremony. Parts of the basement have a dense darkness which shuts out light, suggesting unseen presences.

In the south end of the West Wing of Knight Hall on the first floor:

The full apparition of a young Indian girl is seen sitting on the floor, before she fades away.

The second floor at night:

During the evening hours, people inside the building on the second floor have heard wailing sounds coming from outside the windows and ghostly faces can be seen peaking in these same windows.

People on the third floor:

Have reported the feeling of being watched by some unseen presences, especially after dark.

STILL HAUNTED?

Probably. It appears to be so.

When graves are disturbed, or moved or built on top of, entities can get upset, lost, confused. The offices in this building are mostly closed at night, leaving the place for the restless, lost spirits.
