GYY: The Closed Room at Wilson Hall–Ohio University

Established in 1804, Ohio University in Athens, Ohio is believed to be one of the most haunted campuses in the country.  Furthermore, there is a dorm room on campus that has had so much paranormal activity, that it is now closed off from the students.   This is room 428 in Wilson Hall.

Wilson Hall is said to be the home of a ghost that died in a mysterious way in the 1970s. He died in room 428 and years after that students residing in that room have said to hear strange sounds and hear footsteps as well as witnessing several objects moving by themselves on their own. Since these occurrences the room has been closed off and was not given to any new students again.

This is perhaps the only university room in the world that is sealed and closed. The school officials have proclaimed the room uninhabitable.

The story continues saying that their was a female student that died in a violent way in that room after practicing occult. It is said that the girl made use of the room’s energy to practice a method where the human spirit travels on its own after separating from the body. This technique is known as astral projection. The student was also rumored to have repeatedly attempted to contact the dead and that she often dabbled in sorcery practices.

One of the strangest things about this room is the demon-like face that appears in the wood grain of the door. The door has been replaced multiple times only to have the face appear again.

There is even another theory that the Wilson Hall building itself is geographically located within the center of a pentagram of 5 location cemeteries.   The graveyards are scattered around the area and, when looked at on a map, they form a pentagram. A pentagram is the ancient occult symbol of power and magic.  According to the pagan tradition, a pentagram might create safe areas free from any paranormal activity. The center is extremely important; however, with Wilson hall in the center, why is there so much activity?

Another legend tells that Wilson Hall was built on the grounds of an Indian cemetery and the spirits are of this origin. Spiritualist experts claim that the geography of the area, with the layout of peaks, mountains and valleys makes the spot very conductive to psychic energy. At the beginning of the 1980’s a newspaper researched the property in a routine examination for the institute. They discovered that Wilson Hall is built on the same location as the original site of an early cemetery of the Athens Mental Institute.

What could be the cause of so much paranormal activity at this location?  Could there be an open doorway into the spiritual realm?
