Eastfield Community College was built in the early 1970s on the site of the old Motley Mansion. The mansion was owned by the Motley family – first residents of the area and was burned to the ground by vandals. The land was later donated to the community for the building of the college. The family cemetery is still on a corner of the land.
It is said that the Theater of the college is haunted by a man who watches practices of the plays. He has been reported several times in the past 20 years or so.
