Join the hunt for the Grey Lady of Willard Library

Posted: Updated:

There's a building in Evansville you may want to check out if you like a good ghost story. 

Starting Thursday night, you have a chance to hunt for the Grey Lady of Willard Library.

Willard is more than 110-years-old, it's the oldest public library in the state and of course, according to legend, it is haunted by the Grey Lady.

Who is the Grey Lady? Many people believe that she is the daughter to the heir of the Willard Carpenter's fortune, but that fortune was used to fund Willard Library.

The first reported sighting was by a custodian 60 years ago, since then they've been frequent. So much so, that the library installed cameras where you can watch for her.

People reported noises, books and furniture being moved around, feeling being touches, smells.

The tours meet at the first floor of Willard and start at 6 p.m. and are about 30 to 45 minutes. They fill up quickly, so reservations are a must.

Here is a list of this year's tours:

Thursday Oct. 17 at 6, 7 or 8 PM
Friday Oct. 18 at 7, 8 or 9 PM
Saturday Oct. 19 at 8, 9 or 10 PM
