The Ghost of Nebraska Wesleyan University
On the morning of October 3rd, 1963, Coleen Buterbaugh, who was the secretary at the University of Nebraska Wesleyan, was asked to deliver a message to someone in the White Memorial Building. As Coleen walked through the halls she looked into a room and noticed the figure of woman in front of what seemed to be a music cabinet. The figure was tall and thin and had her arm extended as if she was reaching for something in the cabinet. The figure then disappeared into thin air.
Immediately after, Coleen looked out the window where normally she would see the school’s dorm building and a street. However, when she looked out all she saw was grass and trees. Also, even though it was the fall, she had the feeling she was looking out at a summer day because everything seemed so still to her. This is when she realized that she had been placed into a moment back in time. After this experience, Coleen did some research and found out that a lady had been a teacher that looked exactly like the figure she saw. Her name was Miss Mills, and she was a faculty member at the University from 1912 to her death in 1936, which was about 30 years removed from Coleen’s experience.
