The University of Tampa’s Plant Hall is now an academic building, but it previously served as a 500 room hotel that hosted the likes of Teddy Roosevelt and Babe Ruth as guests.
It is now said to be rife with paranormal activity including the disembodied voices of long-dead servants and the sound of rolling dice!
Doors have swung slowly open and closed by themselves and staff and students alike describe an uneasy feeling that they are being watched by something unseen in the shadows.
It is also said to be haunted by an entity known as ‘The Brown Man’ who is described as wearing a brown colored suit and having terrifying glowing red eyes! He is prone to appearing and then vanishing quickly with no warning on staircases in the building.
There have also been reports of a spectral couple dancing in the former ballroom.
