In 1871, Clara Robertson’s life was forever altered by an encounter with a ghost. The blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl witnessed a haunting vision of a transparent, emaciated young girl in a tattered pink dress while practicing piano upstairs at the Brinkley Female College in Memphis, Tennessee. The sensational series of events that followed was widely covered in the media of the day, causing a frenzy in town and making the tale of Pink Lizzie one of the most infamous hauntings in Memphis history.

Key Highlights

  • Brinkley Female College’s short history.
  • The First Encounter of Pink Lizzie, the emaciated looking ghost of a young girl.
  • The Ghost’s Wishes for Clara to take action that will help give her family justice.
  • Séances and Revelations with Mrs. Nourse, the spiritualist attempting to assist the family.
  • The Public Excavation of the spirit’s purported treasure.
  • Fact vs. Fiction, and the legitimacy of the tales.
