Madison Middle School

Formerly Madison High School, this building has a long checkered past of turmoil. I have spoken to a number of people who attended this school over the years, and many say it is a very unhappy and dreary-feeling place. There have been two murders here that I know of, both on the third floor. One was a teacher in the 1940s murdered in room 306 at 1:03am. The other was a cheerleader in the 1950s who, according to some sources, was raped and murdered in the girls' restroom on the third floor.

Ghostly apparitions and loud unexplainable noises/moans/ screams have been reported here, as well as the usual assortment of cold spots and anxiety spots.

Before this was madison middle, or before madison high; it was madison girls institute. Richmond's very own girl's finishing school.

we've got a picture of three or four apparitions on the third floor of this building. The pic was taken at 1:03 am. three appear to be men, one a little girl sitting at a desk. If anyone's interested e mail us at christen_allen49@eku.edu. We also heard stories that it used to be a civil war hospital.

I go to Madison Middle right now, and there is such a lonely, depressing, feeling, especially in the basement, girls locker room, and the 3rd floor. I've had a lot of experiences personally, hearing odd sounds, seeing things in the corners of my eyes, and watching the lockers and bathroom doors slowly shut themselves, it's the creepiest place i've ever been.

I went to MMS all three years. One time I went to the bathroom alone (which is somethign you should never do!) and heard screaming and people yelling. But when I came out in the hallway there was no one there. Some teachers leave puppets at the end of their windows, so don't fall for it.
