Red Lady of Huntingdon College - Real Montgomery Haunt
- 1500 East Fairview Avenue
- Montgomery, AL
The Red Lady of Huntingdon is said to be a the spirit of a girl named Martha who committed suicide on campus when Huntingdon was still the Woman's College of Alabama in the early 20th century. Martha was very fond of the color red, constantly dressing in it and decorating her room with a red rug and red bedspread, but she was not very fond of her stay at the college. She had few if any friends on campus, and her sullen demeanor only distances her further from the other students. One day her roommate, the one person Martha evidently felt a connection to, decided to move out, leaving her angry and bitter over the loss of the closest person she had to a friend.
After her old roommate moved out nobody saw Martha on campus, she did not attend class nor did she come out for any meals. Worried, the roommate returned to Martha's room on the fourth floor of Pratt Hall; she opened the door to find Martha dressed in her red robe, lying on her red bedspread, soaked in blood. Martha had killed herself, but evidently she never left the campus. Her ghost has been repeatedly spotted by students, and a red light is said to glow from her room on the anniversary of her suicide, though the exact date is not known.

I spent the night in Pratt Hall
I worked at the campus radio station, WHCR during the early 1970s. In 1973, during the Summer break, one of the guys at the radio station dared us to spend thevnighthere. He got us in there and we had a good time joking around and playing poker. Harvey, the guy who had dared us stood up and went looking for a restroom after a while. A few minutes later he ran back into the room drenched with sweat and his face as white as a sheet. He was shaking as he exclaimed that “She’s out there”! We all rushed out into the hall, but did not see anything unusual. He swore that he saw her, but none of the rest of us ever heard or saw anything.Posted 12/6/19
