According to school publication The Gettysburgian, in the 1980s and early 2000s, a student and two school administrators saw a grisly, fully functioning Civil War-era operating room in the basement of Penn Hall, which had once served as a hospital and morgue for soldiers during the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg.

According to reports, the individuals saw apparitions of bloody patients and doctors, but when they returned to check on the basement, the operating room had entirely disappeared.
