Mary Ann Starkweather donated money to build this beautiful stone building in 1897 on the campus of Eastern Michigan. She requested the building be used for religious purposes. Her building became the home of the Students’ Christian Association. In 1928 the Christian association ended and in 1976 the Office of Religious Affairs was discontinued. After that, the building was used for campus offices.
Students and faculty believed Starkweather was upset her building was no longer being used as she intended and she began haunting the building. They say strange things happen in the hallways and in the basement of the old building. Most notably a janitor claimed someone or something touched him while he was working all alone in the basement. If you as any EMU student which building is haunted. they will most definitely say Starkweather. For myself, I am not sure about the hauntings, but it is a beautiful old building and a kind gift from a generous woman.
