The Legend of Pemberton Hall, as Told by Michael Kleen

The Legend of Pemberton Hall is among one of the most well known ghost stories in Illinois. Set at Eastern Illinois University, generations of young women who reside in this residence hall have been telling tales of Mary Hawkins and the ghost of an (allegedly) murdered coed. At his presentation at the EIU student union on October 24, 2013, author Michael Kleen explored the fact and the fiction behind the tale. Watch the video below, and read about this legend and more in Tales of Coles County, Illinois by Michael Kleen.
