When Newberry College was just starting off, the Civil War moved here and kicked the school out and turned Smeltzer, one of our dorms, into a war hospital for injured soldiers. The college moved to Walhalla, South Carolina until the war was over and when it was finished, moved back to the town of Newberry. Smeltzer is a three story all girls dorm, but the third floor has been blocked off due to a ghost story about an injured soldier that a girl saw while walking on the third floor hall and scared her so bad that she transferred out.
