There have been stories in the paper about him, nevertheless he remains a ghost to the surrounding city folk because they know of

you walk by the pond where the little girl drowned you can hear her cries and her parent's frantic screams.
Argonne - Old Argonne Grade School - Back in the 1950's, a janitor hung himself in the upstairs storage room. When the school
finally closed in the early 1990's, kids would go up on a dare to write their name on the wall, and would see a man plain as day
hanging from the rafter, and even if they didn't see him they would hear the sounds of the rose squeaking on the boards and of the
janitor moaning. January 2006 Update: The school was condemned in the early 1990's, and a few years ago it was torn down, but
some people still see lights there late at night.

whatsoever. Some on campus theorize her boyfriend pushed her down that elevator shaft. Also, there is talk of a janitor, although no
one seems to know what happened to keep him in Memorial. It is known, however, that he does not like Pagans, or anyone dabbling
in Witchcraft. Black hand prints are constantly found in the rooms, and computers are known to turn on in the middle of the night, and
the desktop is then printed.
Aztalan - (Lake Mills) - Aztalan State park - This is a very active spirit place. Many people have a very uneasy feeling here, like they
are being stalked or hunted. Many divers have had strange things happen when they are in the area of these mounds. There is a
book out on the stories of the divers who looked for the pyramids on the bottom of the lake.
Baraboo - Highway 12 - Many travelers on this highway have reported seeing a male hitchhiker wearing a green jacket. He has black
hair and a beard. If they pass him by they are sure to see him again about a mile later. If anyone stops to pick him up, he disappears
and is not seen again.
Bayfield - Michigan Island Lighthouse - The Lighthouse on Michigan Island is haunted by the ghost of a lighthouse keeper who was
killed when the heavy metal door slammed shut on him during a storm. It is said that during every bad storm, the door slams twice,
even if it is firmly closed and bolted shut.
Beaver Dam - Beaver Dam Community Theater - one night in the Theater a young girl was trying out for a play and did not make it
she got really mad and went up to the loft of the Theater and made a noose and hung herself. This young girls name is Lacy. So
sometimes when people have gone up there they have said that light goes out and footsteps have been heard running up the stairs
Beloit - Beloit Turner School - In this building late at night when everyone has left the building, you will hear screams and people
yelling at each other. But during the day and when people are present in the building, there will be no noises.
Beloit - The Manor - People have reported loud crashing noises coming from the building. People have reported seeing an old
woman looking out the window. People have reported that a little girl has been seen floating on the front lawn. Workers have reported
upstairs when you look in the mirror they see people but when they turn around nothing is there.
Beloit - McNeel Middle School - In the back room of the stage where all of the costumes are kept and sometimes students gather to
discuss or do homework during free time there is said to be a man who used to live on that spot where McNeel was built who haunts
it. One of the worst experiences was when the Theatre teacher Ms. Franze was sleeping on the couch and when she awoke there
was blood everywhere and students soon pointed out that she had an electricity plug stuck into the back of her head. The ghost also
writes in the mirror hanging on the wall and slams the door. There's a chalkboard in the room on which 666 will be scratched and no
one will be able to erase it and then a few days later disappear and then reappear. It's very quiet back there and there's always a
dark feeling like you're not supposed to be in there. Ceiling tiles also fall down but only if someone had been standing there just
seconds before. This has happened on many occasions.
Beloit - The Trestles on Riverside - Every night at midnight if you stand on the hill before the trestle it is reported that you will see a
black man swinging in the trees.
Boltonville - 7 Bridge Road - Supposedly haunted by a woman who was harassed by kids who would kill her cats. Somehow her
house caught on fire and she cursed all the kids and the land and went back inside to die. When you drive down this road you can
still see her cats running around and the burning remains of her home. - February 2004 addition: Also there is a story that the lady
jogging also had with her a white dog, which is occasionally seen on seven bridges.
Boltonville - Jay road-"Seven Bridges Road" - There is a section of Jay road which goes through a swamp. The area is always very
dark and ominous. In the winter months this part is closed due to flooding and ice. The history is that apparently a woman was
jogging down Jay road at some early part of the morning. A drunk driver, either didn't see her or was unable to stop in time to avoid
hitting her. (If you travel this length of the road you will see there is no shoulder.)Her body was knocked into the swamp. Whether the
incident was reported to the police is still under debate, however her body was never recovered. Persons who have traveled "Seven
Bridges" have reported seeing a haze appear just outside their headlights, when your vehicle "catches up to" the entity it appears as
a figure of a woman in a jogging outfit. She will jog down the road in front of your vehicle for about fifty feet, before she turns to face
you, and you literally "hit" her. Some have had her vanish on their hoods while others say they have seen her head appear in their
vehicles and look at the driver before disappearing. Reports also say if you go down this same length during the day vehicles(which
are stopped) may not start up after being shut down. And that she is trying to stop people so that her body may be put to it's "proper
rest". You could not mistake this part of Jay road, on the brightest sunny summer day it's cold, dark and always extremely quiet. -
February 2004 correction: The stop sign on the corner of Seven Bridges and Jay Road appears to be bleeding. When you are far
away the blood seems to be dripping, but then as you approach the stop sign it disappears. If you step out of your car and look at it,
there is nothing there.

owners, disappeared and the house was abandoned. Nobody knows what happened to the people staying in that house. People who

feelings occur by the guest house and smithy shop. One of the doors in the window has been reported to slam with nobody present.
A dark figure walks back and forth upstairs while looking in the front door windows. The Figure sometimes rushes people and impacts
them with such great force they will fly backwards off the porch. Nobody really knows too much about the history of the house.
Burlington - Burlington Public Cemetery - When walking by at any time of night you get a horrible feeling of being watched and
followed there used to even be some report along a small path there leads to another small cemetery where people were chased out
by some mysterious things. - September 2004 update/ correction: the smaller cemetery can not be reached by a path, and can not
be seen from the road, or the cemetery. There is a large field(about the size of a football field) that is owned by the cemetery. At the
end of the field, there is a wooded area. To the left, it appears to be a large path/clearing. That is where the private cemetery is. It's
very shady, fenced in, and surrounded by houses. There are a handful of old graves, scattered about, so if venturing there in the
dark, be careful not to trip and fall. The cemetery is closed from Sunset to Sunrise. So there is no trespassing while it is closed. And
be respectful of the people living in the area.

name of Bantley, killed his family and then hung himself in the barn next to the graveyard. There used to be a cult that used the barn
for its own religious purposes. A birdbath located in the graveyard, still has bloodstains from the sacrifices that used to be done
there. It is also said that too boys were playing tag at night and a hand reached up and grabbed one of the boys' ankles. Because
the fright was so strong he died. He was found dead in the graveyard. His friend was found dead just outside the graveyard of
reasons unknown. People have seen various ghosts, including a little girl in the tree located inside the graveyard.
Caryville - Old Caryville Church and School House - About thirty years ago, investors were going to tear down this old church and
build a new one. The priest got rather upset over the notion and hanged himself in the bell tower. Since his death, many creepy

painted on the wall and when the new owners purchased the place, they painted over the walls but after a while, the roses would
bleed through and they would still try to paint over the wall and still the roses bleed through the paint. This one time an employee
went up to the attic where the freezer is and the employee walked in to get some wine and all of a sudden the freezer door closed
behind him, then locked itself and the lights turned off. He got out a half an hour later with a pick. Make sure to Check Out our

people. There have been reports of cold spots, mysterious mists or fogs in the building, and many cases of workers feeling that
someone was standing behind them and even seeing shadows behind them and turning and no one is there. There have been a few
sightings of a black human form seen walking through the store, sometimes right through displays. The store was built on an old
homestead that had on it a family cemetery. They moved the bodies when they built the store, but they say that some of the older
graves were unmarked and that they missed some of them, thus the haunting of the store by restless spirits.

Cornell - Cornell City Library at 117N 3rd - The small city library in Cornell is a location that triggers unease in most any one that
enters it. As far as the history of the building, the basement, where the restroom is, used to be a jail during the earlier duration of
Cornell's existence. The entire building has a heavy sort of a feeling to it, but it is the basement in particular that makes all who step
down there to visit the restroom uneasy. Some librarians working there would not go down to the basement to the restroom the entire
time they worked there because of the uncomfortable feeling that overwhelms visitors to the basement. The entire basement area
has had virtually no remodeling and is for lack of better description "rugged". To my knowledge there has been no sightings of any
kind, just the feeling of an overbearing presence of some kind.

reappear behind you and take you down by the neck. No one has been brave enough to do so

and have been inhabited by a ghost since the mid-1700s. When an acolyte to the Episcopal priesthood attended this seminary, his
wife had an affair with the Dean. To accommodate this affair, the woman hanged her husband; it was ruled a suicide, however. Since
committing suicide is a mortal sin, the acolyte was buried in a cornfield rather than the cemetery. On her deathbed, the cheating wife
confessed to her crime. The seminary wished to rightfully bury the body, so they exhumed the casket only to find that it was empty. It
is said that the acolyte still haunts the grounds trying to get justice.

ones there. Once long after everyone had left, a bartender was getting ready to leave when he shouted "ok everybody out" jokingly
knowing he had already cleared the bar of people. At that instance, a man stood up from his chair, shook out his coat and proceeded

Waterford - Tichigan Lake Inn - This bar/restaurant is located in a resort lake area and is know to be haunted. Long time residents
have been telling us about ghostly happenings since we bought this establishment seven years ago. We ourselves have witnessed
apparitions and poltergeist-like activities with customers present--margarita glasses flying horizontally off a glass rack before crashing
to the floor, beer tapers all turning on at once with no one nearby, blender turning on by itself and then off by itself just as the
bartender is reaching to turn it off, bell in the kitchen ringing while no one is in the kitchen, footsteps heard to the upstairs followed by
an apparition of a previous regular who is no longer living, etc. This establishment was erected in the 1920's and was a known
Speakeasy and place for the Chicago "bosses" to wait while barrels of whiskey were hauled by horse and wagon from their still to
Highway 164 at the top of the hill for shipment to Chicago. These walls do talk! The goings-on seem playful in nature but still
frightening especially if one is spending the night here alone.

the second floor and to their astonishment they found blood on the walls and a lady and her kid in the bath tub soaked in a tub of
blood. knives were protruding threw various body parts and the kids started to twitch uncontrollably. They looked back after trying to
leave and everything was gone. So now every night at about 12:00 on the dot you can see the boys twitching profusely and the

second or two or three at exactly 12:00.

earlier that there used to be a "makeout" couch located halfway down the rd. While late one night after high school prom a young
couple was down there and the goatman killed them and the couch was covered with thier remains. Also a myth with the road is you

there are people living next to it. It is reported that you can see people staring at you from the third floor windows, and once inside,

Wild Rose - Tuttle Lake - It has been told that before the property became a campsite for children and teenagers for summer
vacations, the lot was owned by a farmer and his wife. It is known that the farmer went crazy when he found out that the wife was
pregnant, so he drowned her in the lake, and the farmer was never seen again. Recently, two counselors from the campsite went to
check on a missing camper out in the woods at night, and ran into what was an extremely bright light where they describe that they
"couldn't see a thing." They said they had no choice, but to turn around because the light was blinding, and as they turned around
they saw a woman run away from them. The counselors start running in a different direction...a direction that lead to the only tent on
the campsite, but when they started running for the tent, they realized they couldn't find it. So, they both turned around to look and
see where exactly they were when they noticed that the tent was in fact right behind them...the weird thing about this is, is that in
order to end up in front of the tent, you have to cross a road, which the counselors themselves told me they "Never, ever crossed."
One counselor said "We were running and running as fast as we could, and then we found ourselves in front of the tent which is
impossible unless you cross the road...which we did not." Strange indeed, and it has been told that investigators had found the
pregnant farmer's wife in the lake, and buried her underneath the campground. Still today, the lady remains underneath the site in
body, but in soul she remains on earth. Watch out carefully for her as you visit this site.

have materialized in mirrors, sometimes appearing to be walking along the bar toward the exit door. A strange voice has even been
heard numerous times near the stage area. In the cellar, unusual cold spots are apparent, as well as kegs of beer being moved
