There are a host of ghostly tales and legends surrounding Chicago, Rockford, Dekalb, Dixon, Byron, and other cities in towns in the Prairie State! In Ghosts of Northern Illinois, meet the spirit of a woman who was brutally murdered in the 1940s. Shiver as you learn about a blue figure that runs down the alley adjacent to the Biograph Theater, then falls to the ground and disappears. Encounter a phantom jogger, the Madonna of Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery, and the mysterious scent of perfume at the Coronado Theater. Come and visit Willow Creek Farm, one of the top-ten haunted houses in Illinois, where over 30 spirits have been detected! Think Illinois looks calm and peaceful? Think again!
