Halloween is just around the corner and we thought we would share a story about a ghost here at Massanutten Regional Library (MRL). This story was shared with us by Lisa Ha who is the tour guide for the Haunted Harrisonburg Walking Tours.
Seven or eight years ago after the library had closed for the day, a former employee was walking through the building. Everyone had left and he was alone. He entered the Law Library in the back of the old part of the library. There he saw a young man in his twenties looking at the shelves of law books. The gentleman seemed out of place, he was dressed in outdated clothing, including an argyle sweater and an old fashioned driving cap.
The employee said he and the young man looked at each other, then snap, he was gone. No one else has seen the spectral visitor since. Come visit the law library some night, and let us know what you see. Or you can try some of the other spooky events going on in Harrisonburg this weekend.
