The Alleged Haunting of the Chapel

According to Hidden History of the Sebago Lakes Region, the chapel at St. Joe's has been haunted by the spirit of a young boy since its inception. Prior to St. Joe's being established, the young son of the family who owned the land tragically passed away. He was buried in the spot where the chapel stands now. Before the chapel was built, his remains were moved a permanent resting spot, but his soul never left. Several former students have reported hearing a young boy laughing or playing in or outside the chapel.

The Tragedy by the Pond

Other ghostly sightings come from another tragic story. Along the coastline of a small pond on campus, witnesses believe they've seen the figure of a young girl playing. As the story goes, a father had built his daughter a playhouse near the pond. When her parents were distracted, she wandered into the pond and drowned. Her spirit has never left the area.

The Nun Who Could Not Let Go

The last ghost story has been reported multiple times from Xavier Hall on campus. The hall, which was once the Verrill family home, also served as a residence hall for senior women. The nun is believed to be a friendly spirit, and one who was so deeply rooted to the school that she simply could not part with it.
