Virginia Intermont College was founded in 1884 as a women’s college and began operations as a coeducational facility in 1972. Financial struggles caused the school to become unaccredited in 2013 and subsequently close after the Spring 2014 semester. The school is also said to be rumored by a ghost who likely still remains even after its closure. According to local legend, a girl named Vera became pregnant by a professor while she was studying at Intermont in the 19th century. Distraught, the girl hanged herself inside one of the campus buildings, knocking over a lamp in the process. The lamp sparked a massive fire and, though the building has since been fully restored, her spirit causes the room in which she died to appear charred and burned at times.

  • Dorm Room

    My dorm was in the east hall near Vera's room. Our door always randomly opened even when locked.

  • Lady at Virginia intermont

    My husband is currently working security detail here under the new owners. Today while sitting in the car as he made a round.. I took some photos.. 3 photos of one particular corner.. In one photo I definitely caught something upon zooming on a window. Definitely a woman in the window. I would love to know the location of her dorm.. I'm so intrigued right now. Not gonna recommend going as the new owners want no trespassing due to the homeless constantly damaging the property.

  • Virginia Intermont college haunting

    I'm also a security officer and i've only been working here for 2 weeks, i know something is up with east, west, and main hall. there is a bridge that goes from east hall to main hall and in the corner of main hall is vera's room. what is spooky to me is that there is an old wooden door that goes to nowhere attached to her room. personality i have not heard any voices or strange sounds but i have felt strong winds and seen hand prints on the inside windows of hodegs hall. i think this place is scary but not haunted. plus rumor has it that vera is alive and well and lives in texas. there is another rumor that 2 other women were murdered in that same room .
