To get into the Halloween spirit, here is a countdown list of places on and near campus that have a haunted twist to them.
7. Haunted Harrington Hall:
Harrington, like other buildings on campus, used to be an elementary school.
6. Blood-Curdling Boyden Hall:
The Boyden Hall we know of now was constructed after a fire in 1924 destroyed the original Bridgewater Normal School building.
5. Terrifying Tillinghast Hall:
The original Tillinghast Hall also burnt down in the fire of 1924. This building used to be a dormitory when BSU was Bridgewater Normal School. Even though this building now houses faculty offices, many of the bathrooms there still have showers in them.
4. Wicked Woodward Hall:
The original Woodward Hall—formerly an all-girls dormitory—burnt down in 1924.
3. The Grim Graveyard:
The Old Graveyard, also known as First Cemetery, was established in 1716. According to Old Bridgewater Historical Society and Findagrave.com, John Washburn deeded the graveyard to the town, and his wife was the first person to be buried there.
2. The Ghastly Greenhouse:
