The Brown Lady has haunted Chowan University since the 19th century, when the Murfreesboro school was an all-female Baptist college. Depending on the version of the story, she jumped to her death when her beau died in the Civil War, expired from typhoid or a broken heart. This photograph, with a model posing as the ghost, appeared in the now-defunct campus paper Smoke Signals.
