Hi, I stumbled upon your site when looking up ghost towns in Missouri, I was looking for more info on Blackwell specifically, and I found your site really interesting. I go to school at Webster University, so when I read about the Lorretto Hilton one, which I had heard before from other people, I wanted you to email a couple more stories about Webster Groves.
Supposedly the 1st floor of the Maria Hall dorms are haunted by a nun that committed suicide. The school used to be an all-girl Catholic college. I never experienced it, but I have many friends who have lived on that floor and heard noises at night, and felt a presence, supposedly it kept leaving when people would try and find it and they'd hear a door open with no one there. It usually stays where the study room there is now, because that's supposedly where she hanged herself.
There is also a house in Webster Groves, I don't have the address, that keeps burning down. From what I've heard, the owners died in the original fire, and the city keeps rebuilding it, and it keeps burning down, I'm not sure why. My best guess is that the owners that died won't be happy until it stays burnt down, because they are still there.
I did my first investigation there while in Webster High School back in 1978. We found that the man who fell to his death from the clouds was Howard Carlton. Most of the stories I here today say that the ghostly happenings at the theater are relatively new. They believe they were a teacher who use to work there (I think) most of the stories they tell are the same type stories I hears back in 78. At that time they told of the ghost pushing someone back up on a set during a sword fight during Macbeth. Also they told stories of crying in the back right side of the stage during the play Billy Bud. when the character in the play falls from the mast of a ship.
I moved away in 1979 and have been back to the Loretto Hilton once since I moved back. I have always found that place interesting.
