Mysterious Heartland says, ” Another group of paranormal investigators captured an audio recording of a woman’s voice saying, “I don’t like trains… I don’t like trains… Trains bring death” in the library as a train passed by outside.”

5. Rockford University, 5050 East State Street

Rock River Times says, “Many campus buildings are said to be haunted. The laughter of past students has been heard in the vicinity of Adams Arch” and a “ghost of either a student or professor reportedly haunts a former radio station in the Burpee Building.” While “the Clark Arts Center’s two theaters are also visited by their own phantoms, one of whom is supposed to be the ghost of the building’s architect.”
