Well the story goes that there used to be a girl Mimi that went to this school back in like the 50's. During the school play she was up on the balcony when she either fell or was pushed. (It's not known which it was) There have been reports of sightings or just getting that feeling....and it's said that everytime she is seen a Brunswick High School student will die in three days. It's said last time she was seen by a teacher a student died in an accident.

Well The story is that Mimi fell off the balcony, broke her neck and died. Also, There was a janitor that closed all of the windows in the school before he went home, and the went back up stairs to get his keys, and the window was open. Another story is that the secretary was walking with books in her hand, and she thought she herd footsteps. She turned around to talk to the person, but there wasn't any body there. She then went walking again and herd the noise again. She turned around... and there wasn't anybody there. Also my friend went down to the basement, and there was a T.V. unplugged, turned of, and yet it was doing the fuzzy thing... strange!

I was actually a student at old BHS (Go Dragons) and there are a few versions of the old ghost story. The most popular being a cheerleader named Mimi being up on the balcony in the auditorium, and slipping off during a basketball game. Another less popular theory is that a girl commited suicide in a car in the parking lot. however, I believe the balcony one fully. We were doing The Crucible in the drama club in my freshman year (1994-1995) and all of the actors were in costume, heavy period pieces, so we had all the windows in the Auditorium open. We were working in act 3 I think, the courtroom scene where the young girls start getting cold. Mind you..this is an old building, and it took some work to get the windows open...and damnit if they did not slam shut all at the same time. I have now heard that the Old School on McKeen Street has been or is being torn down. This is not likely to make Mimi happy. The newer school is also said to have a ghost, she's less known, known as the Blueberry witch. Story goes that she was unhappy with the land being used for the new school as it took away all the blueberries or something. I used to have a picture that I took, standing in a science room on the 3nd floor, looking out an open window, taking pics of the grounds. When I got the film developed, there was definite ghost imagry on the pic, reflections..but the windows were open.

I go to the new Brunswick High School, but have been to the old one many times. It's known that Mimi fell off a balcony and died. If you sit outside against the front door's of the Old High School you get a cold feeling on you're back. Then if you're walking in side you feel as if their are ghosts inside. The Old High School is currently being torn down, which isn't going to make Mimi very happy.

I went to both the old Brunswick High and the new BHS...I was not it drama when they did the crucible but was helping out with stage props...and I can guarantee that all those windows DID slam shut at once.  It was the scariest thing..and being backstage was even worse.  I felt as though someone was standing right behind me, glaring at me. It was the scariest thing.  I have a picture taken in the music room...directly below the auditorium.. with a strange shadow behind my friend.  she is 5'2" and the shadow was taller than her.

I attended the old BHS from 1989-1993.  I remember hearing about Mimi, though I never saw her.  The story was widely accepted as absolute truth.  I think I remember hearing that her senior yearbook was the only one missing from the school's collection, though I have no idea whether it's true... or even whether that's supposed to be something Mimi the Ghost did.

To the person that confirmed being in the auditorium when the windows slammed shut...we might have been in the same class as my class, I was a freshman at the time, was the last one to enter that school. So you were '98 or before...email me at mercurypagen@yahoo.com.

I attended BHS 1990-1992 and definetely herd about mimi. While I attended two students died in mysterious ways and it was just known every year someone would die. When I went the story was always a girl just before she turned 15. I never heard the 3 days story, how scary is that? I never saw her but did get the feeling once walking through the halls after final bell. I can't believe the old school will be torn down, wonder what will happen to mimi. if anyone reading this went to BHS the years I did or graduated 93 please e-mail me at snooks7493@hotmail.com

I think that it's important that we get some basic facts about Mimi. Was there ever a student at BHS named Mimi? When did she attend? Are there any existing pictures of her? Did she in fact die? If she did die, was it in the type of unfortunate accident that has been described in these accounts? Are any of her friends and classmate still living in the area? Can they confirm any of the stories? The Dude with All the Questions. lunaclaro@yahoo.com

Brunswick High School has now been torn down and a new elementary school built on the site. No word if Mimi has moved into the new building.

The new elementry school thats on the site is Harriet Beecher Stowe school I'm a local, and I went in it and it's kind of odd, maybe creepy for the litle kids. But Mt Ararat middle and high school are better... but they were built on a miltlitary base of some sort.

I go to the new Brunswick high school,as a freshmen, I have heard stories about Mimi,and since I'm a believer, I think it's true. However,does she now haunt the Elementary School? I know it made me mad/sad when they tore down the old school,as it did most likely with Mimi. In some way,I hope she still is there. I'm going to be going to the school to get some research,if your interested,or maybe with to know more (yes I know this sounds lame coming from a freshmen) ask for Rain. That's all for now on the Mimi updates!

For BHS 89-93  as I recall only one student died in those 4 years as I remember, Michelle Y., I think winter 1989 on a bus trip.  It was asthma and horrible. Nothing mysterious about it, just tragic.

Mimi is made up by the faculty and passed down each year.  Probably started when Hawthorne used to be the high school and you'd have to go back 100 years for its origins.

With such interest, I reluctantly will clear up the myths and provide some facts.  I worked in the old high school for fifteen years.  Mimi was the nickname of a girl who died at what eventually became the tennis courts at the old school location.  She and her companion died of asphyxiation  when their car was backed into a snow bank and left running.  At the time the girl was a sophomore and her companion a senior.  I have spoken with several members of the class which the senior was in who confirmed the tragedy.  I have read the published obituary of the accident in the local newspaper archives.  I will not offer the names here out or respect to the living members of both families, consider how you might feel if your sister who died tragically was made into a legend due to an curious imagination.

I have also experienced an unfathomable event that others concluded was provoked by the spirit of Mimi.  She certainly did not pass away in the school by falling off from the balcony.  However, several reported occurrences of unique activity happened to take place in the auditorium.  The will to believe is a far greater manifestation than we are able to comprehend.  I believe that many of the events expressed, and there are many believe me, were experienced in the minds of those who were involved.  From the piano played in a vacant closet, to a filing cabinet door opening up before a frightened secretary one evening, to a door opening before the eyes of two staff members only to reveal no one behind the door, to the figure of a solitary young lady silently passing by a custodian who was sweeping the hallway, to a teacher and his dog experiencing the repeated slamming of a door in an otherwise vacant building, the accounts seem endless.  The stories are not the product of a creative or mischievous faculty rather the source of this revelation can best be understood by our will to believe, after all look how many individuals are captivated by this thread.  All you have to do is believe.

The story is that Mimi died at night when the car she was in with her boyfriend backed into a snow bank in the high school parking lot filling the exhaust pipe and causing causing carbon monoxide poisoning. 
On time a had basketball practice in the high school's gym during the summer. There was no janitors or anyone else in the school, it was just and a few parents watching. Suddenly some old music just started playing really loud and it sounding like it was coming from up stairs.
