Cottey College - Real Haunts in Nevada MO
This college was founded by Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard in 1884 and is believed to be haunted by a piano-playing ghost. The spirit is said to be that of Vera Neitzert, a student from 1920 who died when her clothes caught fire while she was cooking candy. Her ghost has been spotted in Main Hall and the former Rosemary Hall. Another spirit who may be the piano player is Madame Blitz, a turn-of-the-century music department head who drank carbolic acid and died across the street in her home.
