Paranormal Expert Will Seek to Find Ghost of Clara Mills
Does the ghost of Clara Mills still live at Nebraska Wesleyan University?
Ghost hunter Chris Moon will visit campus on Friday, October 8 for a “Ghost Hunting 101” presentation and an interactive paranormal investigation.
Moon had his first paranormal experience at the age of seven. Daily occurrences from that time on included objects disappearing and reappearing; doors opening and closing on their own fruition, strange shadows, and nightly haunted sonnets on the family’s 100-year-old grand piano. He also discovered that he had a definite psychic/medium sense and began doing remedial paranormal investigations at a mere 12 years of age.
A musician by trade, Moon’s interest in the paranormal overtook his passion for music and he chose to become a full-time professional investigator. He partnered with his father and started Haunted Times Magazine. Moon and his staff at Haunted Times Magazine now travel throughout the country to discuss ghost hunting and conduct paranormal investigations using an E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena), which allows participants to telephone the dead.
Moon’s “Ghost Hunting 101” seminar will begin at 8 p.m. in Olin B lecture hall. Following his presentation, Moon and his staff will guide participants through an interactive paranormal investigation through campus.
One ghost he will likely be looking for is the ghost of Clara Mills, a beloved music professor and department chair who died in 1940. Twenty-three years after her death, a NWU employee reported seeing Clara Mills’ ghost following some peculiar happenings in the C.C. White Building, the building where Clara died. That building has since been torn down but Clara Mills sightings continue in other campus buildings.
At the conclusion of the evening, 30 students will have the opportunity to spend the night in Alabaster Lounge.
Please note this event is open to NWU students, faculty and staff only. The event is free.
