when did all this take place at the HS? I graduated in 1962...I remember that the shop class was over above the girls PE dressing rooms.. and when the girls came out of the shower to dry-off the boys had drilled a hole just above the heater I think? and they would take turns picking at us...I remember the old girl scout cabin had strange things going on around it... I think it sat above the river am I right?...

I forgot all about the school gost. I too have seen the lights from what was called the upper deck. They went from floor to floor. They could not be explained at the time at all. After this myself and a couple of other gost hunters broke into the school and went all around the school. We saw what we felt was the gost of that women flash down the hall just outside what was then the band room. Scared the crap out of all of us. What I remember the most was that not one of us said anything to each other, we just all started running down the stairs at the same time.we all had the same chills when we stopped running we where under the gym.Never went back after that.

My g. grandmother, was born 1848 up in lawrence co. her maiden name was peter's and she married a turner, in the late 1800's she had a son who went hunting in the woods with a cousin of his, they said the cousin said he did not know what happened, and her boy was never found up in lawrence co. or anywhere, my mother told me this grandmother would tell them ghost stories from when she was a child that scared the jaheevees out of them. Lawrence Co. Il. scary things happen thar.

I used to have a key to the HS,(there used to be several that got passed around in the 80's) anyway, I would go to the back door by the main gym at 10:30-11:00 at night, by myself, turn the lights on in the gym and shoot around for a couple of hours at a time. I must of done this at least 50 times. Never once did anything "ghostly" ever happen. Sure, the old place made lots of weird noises but nothing out of the ordinary.

I currently go to Lawrenceville High School as a Junior. This is our last year at that crazy place. I start at the new HS as a Senior and let me tell you, I sure am going to miss getting back from the Band competitions at 12-1a.m. and having to walk up the west side stairs where Ms. Lyons was killed and drug down by Mr. Gardners room. I can recall, as many others, of seeing the light skip the floors from the outside of the school to this very day. I remember my freshman year there when we were scared to death of the library and we would dare eachother to go in there after band competitions. NEVER again will I do that. I remember hearing a few books hit the ground and a seeing a computer turn off. And does anybody know the story of the other Librarian who hung herself in the Library after Ms. Lyons was killed? Or the story of why the hallway where the girls bathroom is by Mrs. Atkins room is haunted?

At age 16 I went up to the band room to put up some equipment entering from the west side. Realized that I still had some band candy in my locker on the east side of the third floor So I crossed the band room, opened the double doors, and entered the hallway took about 10 steps and noticed a "figure" on the far other side of the hallway. It really did not have defining features but did have a misty appearance and was shining. Very hard to describe. I then decided that I did not need a candy bar, turned around, and briskly left the building to the west.

I also went to LHS, I graduated in 2011, I had Mr. Gardner first hour my sophomore year and we were sitting there one day and the flag stood straight out, windows were shut, and as you know the air and heat rarely worked there. Mr. Gardner was so freaked we ended up spending the hour outside. I've seen some creepy stuff in LHS. The bathroom by the cafeteria was always sketchy too.

Who remembers the librarian wandering the halls of the high school? We used to sneak over there in the middle of the night and look for her in the windows.

And what was the name of that old abandoned yellow house right across the street from Bobes? I'm pretty sure it was one of the scariest places I've ever been. Gross!
The yellow house was mcgahey house... Haunted as hell. Spent alot of time partying in that house and saw and heard some scary shit. Me and a few friends slept there but the activity the wouldn't let us sleep. We spent the night huddled together shaking waiting for sunlight.

My dad worked as a night janitor there, he told us many stories of the librarian wondering the halls at night. I remember him saying he was scared a couple of times. Especially in the hallway close to the library

You know my mom and aunt always told me Kelly lake was haunted to.Said they seen things out there make you want to run home.
Some guy actually committed suicide out there. My grandpa owns the other lake close by, horseshoe pits or pebble beach, and we camp out there quite often, but I've never encountered aything creepy out there happening. Kelly's lake is creepy though.
