Thanks to an anonymous contributor for sending in
photos of the haunted pool room of Stivers Middle School in
Montgomery County. In the 1920s,
there was a teacher who swam in the pool every Friday. Her body was
found floating face down in the pool with a broken pointer in one hand
and a locket in the other. One photo was of her parents and the second
of a man, but the head was torn off the photo. It was thought that the
teacher had an affair with her senior aide, who never returned. The pool
was built over in the 1930s to make way for new classrooms.
I attend Stivers, and the class
where the pool is, that's the photography class. In the photography
class, the trap door to the pool is on the way to the dark room where we
print photos, (ironic). One day I convinced my teacher to let my small
class explore the pool. Once we got down there, it was so freezing cold!
And there were spider webs everywhere, just like the classic horror
movie setting. I was prepared with a flashlight and camera. I really did
feel Ms. Tyler (the ghost's name). In fact, I saw orbs on a couple
pictures I took. Later in the year, we had a Halloween party and
somebody brought in an Ouija board. Ms. Tyler was there and she said
that there was indeed an affair with her senior aide.
