Lions Park Elkhart Lake

Waypoint SE20 Lions Park

The story is that a child passed away here. Now at night the swings are active and the merry-go-round turns even though there is no wind. The story is that this is the ghost of the child playing in the playground.

I found another batch of sites to add to the file. Maybe you can get out and snap some pix of the ones that are close to you and post about them here. Lots of information about the sites can be found with a haunted search on the web. Kind of fun to deal with these.

I should warn you about getting involved though. The other night the file I have on this fell to the floor at 3:30AM and woke me up. I got up and checked on it. Twenty minutes later it fell to the floor again. Mmmuhwaahahaaaa!

Greenbush Old Wade House

Waypoint SE29 Old Wade House

The Wade House is an old stage stop hotel from the 1850s. I don't think anything evil happened here so the story is that it is kind of a gentle haunting.



Tour guides dressed in period costumes have reported being spoken to by ghosts from the past.



Some guides have reported being pushed down the steps of a back bedroom.



Others have heard scuffing around the house when no one else was there. I think some ghosts from that period have been seen on the porch as well.

You should start one for MN Tom. Fun tags, often interesting places, and usually fun stories associated with them. Here is a starter list. More detailed information is available by searching about individual sites.

This is an incredibly interesting way to integrate history, lore, and motorcycling.

Wonderful pics and write-ups so far, certainly a tough standard to match.

Great idea Cannon, I love this stuff. Think I need to pick up a copy of Haunted Wisconsin.

You know, with a name like Mabel Tainter, I think I'd be a restless ghost, too. It's a beautiful place, though.

Looking forward to seeing other people's pix and the stories they relate about some of these places. Fancy pix not required!

I think you'll have some fun with this! Don't forget to search around the web as their are some pretty entertaining stories beyond the book and the overview site.

I just posted a new GPX with about 280 waypoints in it. I divided up the waypoints by region so people can sort through it a little easier. A search using "haunted" in front of the location name will get the details. Otherwise, look at the city the waypoint is in and search the overview site for haunts in that city.

Walnut Grove Cemetery Glenbeulah

Waypoint EC07 Walnut Grove Cemetery Glenbeulah

This is a haunted cemetery on a hill on the edge of Glenbeulah.



The story here is that a guy hung himself in the cemetery. His head came off and rolled down the hill into the town. Now his headless body roams the cemetery looking for his noggin.



Some have reported seeing apparitions including some strange looking red and white people.



Strange lights appear around graves. One grave is reported to glow in the dark.



A pair of shoes has been seen to materialize on a grave.



Some graves split open down the middle.



There is a secluded secret house back in the woods. Someone lives there.



Probably best not to be there when it gets dark.

Galloway House Fond du Lac

Waypoint EC21 Galloway House Fond du Lac (from Door County ride)

As you go through the house you can hear people moving around and talking. You can hear kids giggling in the upstairs playroom. Plates clatter in the kitchen. Yet no one is there.

The servant quarters are off limits as if something bad happened there.

Ramada Plaza Fond du Lac

Waypoint EC24 Ramada Plaza (from Yellowstone Trail ride)

This is formerly the Retlaw Plaza (Walter spelled backwards). It was built in 1922 and was a big deal for a lot of years. Some notables that stayed there include JFK, Hubert Humphrey, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Gene Autry.

Walter died and he haunts the place. The staff is said to keep an informal log of paranormal activity.

People feel that there is a presence in the doorways of their rooms. Lights and faucets turn themselves on, there are screams, banging noises, and apparitions.

Room 717 is a paranormal hotspot. In 2001 guest and staff heard screams coming from the room. They key wouldn't work. The door flexed as if someone was kicking it from the inside. When they finally got into the room, no one was there and there were no marks on the door.

People have felt tingles on their backs and their hair has been pulled. A flash of light appeared on an empty balcony. Channels are frequently changed to C-SPAN.

People have reported a glow in one of the banquet rooms. Male voices can be heard. Phantom footsteps follow people around. Unseen bodies bump into people. People report the ghost of a man who walks into walls. A beautiful red headed woman in a white bathrobe appears startled and disappears into a hallway.

The ballroom chandelier sways and trembles without explanation. An employee who heard a noise in the room investigated and saw a couple that was dancing vanish before his eyes. This happened to another staff member who fled down the hall and heard lockers in the locker room shaking.

Fowler Lake Oconomowoc

Waypoint SE69 Fowler Lake

Back in 2003 and old man was out alone in his boat fishing on Fowler Lake.



People think he may have had a heart attack as he faltered and went over the side and died.



It is said that he haunts the lake every evening at sunset. He can be seen out there in his boat.

Old Oconomowoc High School Oconomowoc

Waypoint SE70 Old Oconomowoc High School

The story here is that a student hung himself in the lower gym.



Now he haunts the place.



The building is being converted to apartments.



This haunting will be an added bonus for those that move in.



Or, perhaps, an added surprise.
