The Ghosts of Willard Library
More than 110 years old, Willard Library is the oldest public library building in the state of Indiana. The library, housed in a beautiful Victorian Gothic building in Evansville, is nestled gloriously near the downtown area of this southwestern Indiana city of 130,000 people, providing a sharp contrast with the modern high-rises and six-lane freeways.
The Willard Library Ghost Cams were inspired by the question “Is Willard Library Haunted?” It has become a fascinating, and somewhat credible, legend that drives thousands of people to search the library for remnants of lost spirits.According to reports from visitors, some of the most frequent encounters with the legendary Lady in Grey have occurred in the children’s reading room in the basement of Willard Library.
The library has been investigated by several organizations including MESA (multi-energy sensor array), TAPS, and other teams looking for ghosts.
The first reported incident happened sixty years ago to a library employee who trekked through the snowy cold for his nightly duty. Since then, countless other employees and patrons have reported seeing this apparition, each giving an eerily similar description.
