He also supposedly haunts the old state capital building; his childhood home in New Salem,IL, Kentucky and Indiana; a home him and his wife and children lived in, in Springfield, IL; not to mention his burial site; he is also rumored to haunt the site where he gave the Gettysberg Address ; and the Ford’s Theater in Washington where he was assassinated. Does the man not rest even in death?

Crampton is def’ haunted. I lived there. The TV in the our room would turn on and off throughout the night. We thought at first that it was our dorm-mates messing with us, but tested that theory by staying in the dorm over break. Everyone was gone but a few other guys down stairs… and the damn TV still turned on and off at night.

We even changed sets just incase that was an issue. IC is a very haunted campus. The art building, though relatively new, is very haunted. You can hear voices in the hall near the theatre entrace that sound like a muffled version of the sounds heard before a show when people are getting their tickets, but when you go to investigate you will find nothing… but it will feel as if the place is crunching in on you… like the the building is pressing in, if that makes sense.

Several of us felt that while working late at night in the art department.

Scientifically speaking, being backed by the sub-paradigm of a holographic universe, a haunting is either a life-force’s energy – in part or in full – left behind, or a set ‘replay’ of a previous event or action with minimal variables involving aforemention life-force. Sticking strictly to this theory, (as do most seasoned ghost hunters as well as fanatics) this life-force is as vast as every bit of energy in current existence. Thus every place an individual possessing said life-force could inherently ‘infect’ or rather inhabit – should you prefer the term – any single bit of space said individual ever was at any point in time during their lifespan, and perhaps even further.

Long story short, anywhere that a living creature experiences a spike in primary brainwaves, (I.E. emotional stress) it can leave behind some sort of imprint of itself. This is how a single apparition can infest, or rather haunt, multiple places, and in fact – said apparition can make it’s presence known at any or all of said impressions at any given time, even simultaneously.

On that note, of course, certain variables being present help for one of these impressions come to light. This can be anything from a certain person or object being near, to weather conditions, dates, times and even specific vocal frequencies.

If people are not interested in reading about hauntings and ghosts why waste everyone’s time by coming to this website to leave trivial information
and stupid replies. I read some of these and they have nothing to do with the main subject, ghosts and
hauntings, come on morons, get a life!
