Towering 143 feet in the air, Glatfelter Hall, on the campus of Gettysburg College,  was completed in 1889 at a cost of $92,000. It is one of the three prominent structures that reside on the campus.  I drove through the campus today and was struck by the tower, especially with the fluffy white clouds behind it. The tower also has a cool ghost story associated with it, as told on one of the many ghost walks through the town.  The bell tower on Glatfelter Hall is said to be haunted by the spirit of a girl that committed suicide by jumping from the tower. Male faculty members and students have seen her at the top of the tower late at night. The story is that her lover was supposed to jump with her, but after she jumped he changed his mind. So, late at night she tries to lure the men walking by up to the top, hoping they will jump to their death and join her. August 18, 2012
