Berry College is said to have many paranormal happenings. One of the most talked about is CCC Road. There is a strange phenomenon that when one crosses the bridge they will be able to count seven on the way in but once you are on your way back you will only be able to count six. There is a cemetery on the road where organ music, crying, as well as strange footsteps can be heard.
The road in between the old campus and the new campus is the place where a girl was run over by her boyfriend’s car. When called upon she would come and she comes in the form of a glowing green light and this can be seen in the trees in the spot where she died.
At the west end of the road lie the ruins of an old church and cemetery named Mountain Springs Church. People who have been there have reported hearing music coming from the church, as well as crying and footsteps.
There is also a tower between the East and West Mary Dorm which is reported to be haunted. According to stories, there was a girl who hung herself in that tower and it was quite a number of days before she was discovered. The room is now closed but people who have gone to the tower felt a sudden and intense cold which is accompanied by the sound of a woman crying.
Visitors and students who have walked near the horse trails near the watermill have reported being followed by a man but when they looked at him, he glared and suddenly vanished.
Berry College is a private, four-year liberal arts college which is located in Floyd County, Georgia. It was founded in 1902 by Martha Berry and it has been named the country’s top “up and coming” liberal arts college.
After the founder’s death in 1942, the school found itself with declining contributions and after the Second World War many believed that the school’s mission has become obsolete because of the expanding public education facilities.
Five presidents served over a 12-year period. Fortunately, John R. Bertrand’s leadership helped the college continue to improve its liberal arts department and raise professional programs to competitive levels. It gained accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in 1957.
Today, Berry College has more than 2,000 students and 17 countries are represented in the student body. Berry College has been used for the filming of several movies including Sweet Home Alabama, Perfect Harmony and Remember the Titans. The TV series The Following was also filmed in the school.
