Studebaker, one of the original brothers who was of the Studebaker dynasty. It
has been many things since being inhabited, a home for deaf children and now a
fancy restaurant. There was a fire in the nurserey in the early 1900's and a
nanny and child were severely burned, and Mr. Studebaker committed suicide after
the Studebaker empire was crumbling (although it's disputed as to whether or not
he actually killed himself in this house). According to bartenders, especially
at night late, they feel chills, see things move out of the corner of their
eyes, one of the workers says, his room mate, also a worker, was speaking to
patrons about the "legends" and mentioned that he personally did not believe it
ghosts...as soon as he said it an expensive bottle of liquor flew off of a top
shelf about 8 ft off the ground and crashed right behind him. The very top floor
is a ballroom and was used for dances when it was lived in, and appears to have
the most activity, as well as the floor directly below it, which is where the
nursery was, now where the bar is.

university came to be as we know it today, the Patawatami Indians lived their
lives along the shores of what is now known as the St. Joseph River. They buried
their dead in the area and some of their dead still seem to be around.

as a dormitory for the one and only George Gipp. Gipp was known as a wonderful
football player, and something of a gambler. His ghost is said to haunt the

infancy. Ghostly Native Americans, and their spectral horses, have been seen
riding up and down it's stone front steps.
