Smith College - Sessions House - Real Northampton Haunted Place
This dorm dates back to 1710 when it was built with a secret passageway inside. The owners used the passageway to hide from attacking Native Americans. This historic location is said to be haunted by original owner, Captain Jonathan Hunt's granddaughter Lucy and her lover, Johnny Burgoyne. Johnny was a British general who Lucy met when he was being held captive in the house during the Revolutionary War. Their meeting place was the secret passageway. Other legends surrounding the home include one of a woman who murdered her children with an axe, mistaking them for burglars, and two students who died after they fell while searching for the passageway.
