Litchfield Middle School
Website & Contact Information
Constructed in 1959, Litchfield Middle School was named after Paul W. Litchfield.
Paul Weeks Litchfield 1875-1959
In 1900 Paul W. Litchfield came to Akron from Boston, assuming the role of superintendent of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. In 1926 he became president of the company, relinquishing this role in 1940 but remaining as chairman of the board and chief executive officer.
Litchfield felt strongly about the value of education, regarding it as a primary force in the lives of individuals. He was one of the first technically-trained, college-graduated men to enter the rubber industry. He established the Goodyear Training Center and was an active, ardent supporter of Akron Public Schools and the University of Akron.
Paul W. Litchfield, after whom the school is named, supposedly haunts this junior high school. Reports say, that laughing, opening and closing of doors are a common occurrence.
Experiments, Tests, & Debunking
Lead Investigator, John Albrecht believes that Mr. Litchfield does not haunt this school. From the research that he did, he determined that Paul W. Litchfield died in 1959. The school was built in 1959 after his death in his honor.
If this place is haunted, then it's haunted by another person's ghost.
This case is closed.
