Rringling College of Art and Design, Sarasota, Florida
Keating Hall was originally called The Bay Haven Hotel. This hotel opened in 1925 as an upscale hotel for people who where visiting the area. However, due to the financial stress of the times, the hotel closed in the late 1930's.
The legend at this Sarasota, Florida school is that a young woman met an untimely death in the stairwell of what now is the school’s Keating Center, a residence hall created out of a restored 1920s-era hotel. The ghost of the woman, is believed to stir the paintbrushes in rinse cups on art students’ desks and walk the halls, according to the Sarasota Convention & Visitors Bureau.
