Cottey College - Nevada MO Real Haunted Places
- 1000 W. Austin Blvd.
- 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.

I am a current Cottey student that lives in Robertson hall. I have heard of Vera, but not the piano-playing ghost. My suitemates and I have experienced strange going ons however. The worst and creepiest would be the loud knocking on my roommates and my dorm door at 3:00 am every other day for the past two weeks as well as the sound of moving furniture at 5:00 am almost every morning from the vacant suite above us.Posted 3/5/20
