These ruins remain of an 1800's building that was destroyed by a fire. There are many eerie stories that surround the place, one being of a gardener who set fire to cover his tracks after raping and killing many students. Another story says the girls at the school all died from a mysterious illness. The students' ghosts are said to linger on the property and can sometimes be heard crying or singing "London Bridge." Their murderer's apparition has been seen sitting on the steps of the nearby church, wearing all black. Other stories about the area include a phantom black hound, a force that drains car batteries and a curse on the land.

  • I've been there 3 years ago when I was 19 with friends

    Few years back in about 2017 or 18 I was there with a group of friends we went to the famous covered bridge my one friends girlfriends little brother was on the bridge smoking a cigarette and she took a picture of him and there was clearly a face not for my cigarette smoke we started at the top of the nearby Church above the graveyard kind of an eerie vibe it was late at night/early morning I thought we saw dark figures maybe the black dog so people say oh man that is set to stay on the steps porch of the church weirdest thing of all after we left the bridge to go back to our car where we parked after we moved from the church to go to the bridge got back in the car and the car would not start took about 5 minutes before our car would restart and there is a rumor that the spirits around it'll drain your car battery that I do believe I even tried starting the car myself and it wouldn't work so I knew my friend wasn't just messing around! It's worth a drive if you're not too far go at night!

  • Never been to the site

    I've personally never been there, but I've heard about experiences from other people. They have mentioned the black dog and apparitions in the windows of the church nearby. The school, officially known as The Tuscarora Female Seminary was chartered in 1857, according to a book written by a local man named Wayne Taylor who taught history for 33 years in Juniata County. Interestingly enough, he recently had another book published. I think the title is Ghosts of Academia or Spirits of Academia. Might be worth reading to anyone who is interested
