At Chowan University in Murfreesboro there is a legend of the ''Brown Lady. '' The story goes is that during the Civil War (When Chowan University was an all girls boarding school called ''Chowan Female Baptist Institute''). The Collums Building on campus dates back to 1848. There was once a young student who was engaged to a Confederate soldier. He vowed to come and marry her when the war was over. He never came home and the young lady, so distraught,
leaped to her death from the top floor of the Collums Building. She was wearing a brown dress and her ghost has been seen by many students over the years.
Often on moonlight nights a woman wearing a brown dress can be seen pacing the balcony of the Collums Building. .|
